I have a Sonos system in my home and I have always been impressed with the sound quality. To my ear, it’s far better than comparable Bose systems because the sound is more natural and the tuning is far better. I test plenty of speakers from other brands as well, but nothing has ever topped Sonos for me unless you’re willing to spend some serious cash. That all changed recently, however, when I received a pair of Edifier S3000Pro Audiophile Active Speakers to test. I’ve had them for a few weeks now, and my jaw still hits the floor every single time I turn them on.
These incredible speakers have Bluetooth 5.0 aptX support as well as multiple wired digital and analog audio inputs, so you can stream music to them on their own or connect them to an existing sound system. They feature planar silk diaphragm tweeters as well as a 6.5inch aluminum alloy diaphragm bass unit, the combination of which produces mindbogglingly clean sound at low volumes and when cranked all the way up. You won’t believe the bass that the S3000Pro speakers produce — it’s like nothing else in this class.
At $799.99, a pair of Edifier’s S3000Pro speakers are priced just $100 higher than a Sonos Playbar, but the sound they produce is in a completely different league. You truly have to hear them to appreciate what Edifier has pulled off with these speakers.
