Gaming headsets have reached an interesting tipping point. For years many of them weren’t worth the price of the box they came in. They sported ugly, heavy designs, poor quality materials and sound quality to match. But over the last five years manufacturers have — to my shock — begun to shift their focus towards a quality product and now we find ourselves at another strange crossroads. Legitimate and respected home audio brands, in this case Edifier, are getting into the gaming headset space. With their G4 headset, Edifier are coming into an already crowded market with plenty of experience behind them. How do they stack up?

We’ve come to expect a certain standard from Edifier’s many different speakers. When we took at a look at the older R2000DB speakers about this time last year, we found them to be an extremely solid option in the 2.1 home speaker category. The R1010BT, a much cheaper alternative by comparison, feels like the jaded kid that refuses to try because they think no-one expects anything of them.
Edifier has long been a significant name in quality audio. From simple PC speakers to home theatre, they’ve built a reputation for crafting speakers that not only sound amazing but look quite stylish as well. In the R2000DB, Edifier have created a simple dual speaker set up that is perfect for those who want to create a space-efficient home theatre or add a bit of grunt to their PC.
