Edifier W820NB Review

Welcome to my review of the Edifier W820NB Bluetooth Headphones. We’ve reviewed a few different products from Edifier and the W820NB is the latest to don my ears.

More Sound Less Noise

So how do the headphones perform? Continue reading to find out. You can also check out our previous hardware reviews.

The Hardware

In the box, we have a nicely packed set of headphones, along with a quick start guide, and a USB-C charging cable. For the purpose of the review, I was sent the black pair (more about colour ways below).

The Edifier logo looks nice.

The pair I received had around 80% battery out of the box so I was good to go with giving them an extended test before I even needed to reach for a charger. Not too far into testing them, I noticed that they actually sounded very good for the price (~£80 at the time of writing).

Design and Functionality

The Edifier W820NB does not do anything special with regard to appearance. They’re a standard over-the-ear design, but as I’ve said before why change something that works? We also have the Edifier logo on both sides, the black pair I have has the logo in a nice rose gold-esque colour.

Speaking of colours, we have four choices. Black, Bright Black, Blue, and White. Not a bad selection there if you ask me.

All of the buttons and the USB-C charging port are located on the bottom of the right cup. We have volume up/down, power, and Bluetooth buttons. The Bluetooth button is actually a multi-action button and allows you to enable/disable ANC as well as enable/disable gaming mode with ease. To do these actions you just need to press the Bluetooth button once, or twice in quick succession. As mentioned if you hold the Bluetooth button the headphones will go into pairing mode.

A nice array of buttons.

Overall the design is good and all of the buttons are easy to feel and press when the headphones are on your head.

The functionality is where it counts with headphones though, of course. I must say that I was very impressed from the moment I first used the Edifier W820NB. I was genuinely surprised by how nice they sound for the price, as mentioned above.

We’re met with excellent balance on the treble and bass levels. Bass sounds good across all levels in my opinion, usually, you would hear distortion during the higher level of bass. This is not apparent with the W820NB

The levels of treble didn’t appear to hiss or distort either. This was at all levels of volume that my ears could take without being too loud for me.

Connection and Software

The connection is very simple, you hold the Bluetooth button for a few seconds. They then enable pairing mode for you to connect to your phone, handheld games console, laptop, or tablet. The choice is yours!

You can customise your W820NB Bluetooth Headphones with the Android app but of course, you can only do that when paired to an Android or iOS device.

Conclusions

The Edifier W820NB is a fantastic bang for the buck. They can be purchased for £69.99 on Amazon at the time of writing, with an RRP of £79.99. This is a very reasonable price for the features you get with these headphones.

I score the Edifier W820NB headphones 9/10.
