These pair of studio monitors were on a YouTube video for technology under 50. Coming into the purchase, I wasn’t as confident going into it, mainly because they had zero reviews on Amazon. However, they fail to impress. For under £30,they deliver amazing sound, with a main speaker and a tweeter below that. It gets loud enough, and delivers a good amount of bass for monitors. But I was blown away, paying only £28, improving my setup greatly.
Besides the sound, the Edifier R19U have top class aesthetics, making them appear like speakers that are much, much over it’s price range. They are well built monitors made from what seems is wood and metal, but I may be wrong. These speakers connect by USB, which is my only choice, since my setup is ran by a laptop.It’s my first time going into the market of budget speakers, so you may not be as impressed as me. The right monitor has volume control, which is quite exceptional considering it’s price point.
The R19U produce a clean crisp sound which leans more to those who like bass in their listening experience, me being one of them. They are more suited less to those to who want to use these as monitors for editing, and for those that like listening to more mid/high frequency intense music such as jazz or classical.

Pros And Cons
- Amazing sound, great bass
- Premium materials
- Angled upwards for better listening experience
- Can connect to phone
- Comes with master volume control
- These aren’t suitable for those wanting a more high frequency based listening experience
- There is a ‘block’ too close to the actual USB Port.
The Edifiers deliver great sound for the price, and I would recommend to anyone who is look to improve their setup, but only has less than £30 to spend on speakers. Amazing for laptop setups like mine, since you are limited to USB and not many other ports. From the master volume control, to the beautiful design, these fail to disappoint for a low price point. Shame these speakers are in the more expensive speakers’ shadow.
