Generally we separate products into low-end, mid-range and high-end. Here what we have with the M1335 is something just above low-end.

Sober but not austere

Less daring than the M3200, the M1335 is a kit made up of two small satellite speakers and a subwoofer that doesn't take up much space either. While the satellites are nice and discrete, the subwoofer has an enormous insert in silver plastic!

The finish isn't bad nevertheless, well above what you often find with Chinese makes. On just its third kit, Edifier is showing that it is possible to make accessibly-priced products without peddling rubbish.

The plastic remote is obviously not high-end but isn't cheap-looking either. It's definitely a plus in terms of usability of the kit. A shame that there's no auxiliary in.

Odd frequency curve, ordinary sound

The M1335 frequency curve has a tendency to bounce. It climbs and then falls on a regular basis: a strange phenomenon that makes you think of the curves you get with in-ear headphones. But the sound is quite different. There's no noticeable variation.

Obviously this isn't hi-fi equipment but it's at least what you would hope for on this type of product. No miracles from the satellite speakers that do what they can with all the sounds they have to handle. Naturally, if you push the volume they struggle and the subwoofer gets a little mushy.

The M1335 won't revolutionise the world of audio. What you get is an average set that does nevertheless give value for money. It confirms that for regular computer use (internet included then), you shouldn't hold back on investing a little money. And no need to break the bank either as there's quite a margin beteen the M1335 and a set of Focal XS speakers.
Why spend money on speakers?
Browsing the specialised computer stores, tech fans can purchase components or get the ideal custom computer assembled while they're in the shop.

Too often however, people splash out on a CPU, GPU, RAM and so on but economise too much on the audio side. This attitude is no doubt encouraged by the fact that motherboards have long since come with sound cards that are more than adequate. You don't see the sound, you no longer need to buy a sound card, so why bother with speakers?

Don't forget that hearing is one of the 5 senses! Play a game where you're under attack from all sides on a mediocre set of speakers and then compare with a good kit, or headphones, and you'll soon see the difference.

Little kits like the M1335 are fine for occasional use, but if you want to watch films online, do some gaming and watch DVDs, you really should splash out a bit more on your speakers and go for a bit of quality. The M1335 isn't unworthy of being called a speaker kit, it just isn't all that.


  • Discrete without being austere
  • Compact
  • Remote included


  • Average sound
  • Soft bass sounds
  • No aux in


For a low-priced product, the M1335 does very well. It'll be fine for limited use but anything more and it's out of its depth.
