Looking for a new speaker system for around the house, that doesn’t require a tethered cable? I may have just stumbled upon your perfect fit. After two weeks with this sleek looking Edifier Bric Connect speaker system, I’m here to give you an overall review of what you can expect, should you purchase one.
Getting to know the Edifier
What’s so great about this $99 device (yes, pricey)? Try a built-in microphone with a phone button on the dock! Meaning you can kick back and hold a conference call with this bad boy without even touching your phone. Note: You probably should be using something like this regardless, considering the fact that it’s still to this day not (cite NY Times) 100 percent safe to hold your radiated phone to your brain (FCC plugs ears). As I mentioned earlier, it is pricey, but you have to consider the Bluetooth and mic use, as well as the quality of audio you get out of it. I’m not saying this would be ideal for a backyard soiree, but it really has dynamic depth of sound around the house for me. If that’s not enough, also consider this sweet little controller they throw in, along with the ability to hook up a second auxiliary device.
Like most of my reviews, I’m quick to agree — this is not for everyone. $99 is not economy, it’s quality. If you can afford it, it’s an awesome gadget around the house, with great audio. Just a heads up though, if you’re an Apple user that’s accustomed to simple AirPlay syncing, you should look elsewhere, as Bric again uses Bluetooth options to enable. Some of the newly released docks on the market are now offering that ability. Also, as i mentioned before, audio is not the best outside, as the speaker is a 12 watt (6×6) dock, so look elsewhere if you’re looking to rattle ears. Everything said, Edifier adds another great addition to the market. Let us know if you have one as well and what your experience has been.
