The Edifier G5000 speakers are a powerful and stylish addition to any audio setup. Designed with a focus on delivering clear and dynamic sound, these speakers are ideal for gamers, movie enthusiasts, and music lovers alike.
I was really pleased to get the email to say they’d been dispatched, I eagerly awaited for them to turn up on the door step. It’s been a month or so since I’ve reviewed some audio gear, which means only one thing, I’m itching to get started on the review!
So, let’s get into my Edifier G5000 Review and we’ll find out if they perform as well as they look. First up, my first impressions.
Edifier G5000 Review
One of the standout features of the G5000 is their impressive power output. With a total of 88 watts RMS, these speakers are capable of delivering high-quality sound at high volumes without distortion. This makes them an excellent choice for use in gaming or any other rooms for that matter.
When you go to hook the G5000’s up to your console or gaming PC, you won’t have to worry about connectivity. The speakers are equipped with a bunch of connectivity options, including Bluetooth, RCA, and AUX inputs.
This makes it easy to connect them to a wide range of devices, including smartphones, laptops, and gaming consoles. I had them hooked up to my iPhone, Nintendo Switch and PC.
They’ve also got the latest in Bluetooth connectivity, which is particularly convenient, allowing for streaming of your audio; music, podcasts etc, all without the need for those pesky wires.
Build Quality & Design
In terms of design, the G5000 speakers are sleek and modern, with a lovely grey and black finish and sharp angles. I love the RGB LED ‘Gaming’ accent; pair that with the awesome LED lighting around the front edge of the speakers and they’d fit right at home in any gaming setup.
The front-facing drivers are ‘naked’ which I like. Gaming speakers such as these shouldn’t have the drivers covered up by ugly black mesh grilles.
The decision to use contrasting grey and black panels in the construction is to be applauded. Black and grey are synonymous for being boring as individual colours, but pair them together in a gaming speaker from Edifiers’ Hecate range and the result is simply fantastic.
Each of the G5000 speakers are made using wood and aluminium side panels. This construction method helps to create a really strong and rigid speaker, which not only ensures they’re super strong, it improves sound quality.
It does this by reproducing audio more effectively, thus reducing overall distortion and improving accuracy in the instrumentation.
Speaking of construction materials, here comes the scratch test. I didn’t want to ruin the stunning finish of the grey or black panels. I opted to run my knife down the back of the right hand speaker in stead of the side.
It did leave a visible line where I’d traced the knife down. I did use quite a bit of force and the knife has recently been sharpened.
Don’t let that put you off from picking these up though, I’d expect them to hold up to the rigors of day to day gaming just fine, you aren’t exactly going to be throwing knifes around the room whilst your gaming.
The back of the right speaker houses all of the connectivity options, as well as volume and bass controls. The controls are easy to use and provide a good range of adjustability. But, having said that I can’t help but feel that the G5000 should have came with a bundled remote control.
I don’t really want to have to adjust the volume by reaching toward the back of the speaker without being able to see what I’m doing. A remote control would allow for more refined volume adjustments.
The overall aesthetic is both stylish and almost over the top, but I love it. And, in terms of overall build quality, it carries that same Edifier standard that I’ve came to know and love over the years.
Let’s move on now and take a look at the sound quality aspect of my review.
When it comes to sound quality, the G5000 speakers do not disappoint. The high-end tweeter driver and 5.5-inch bass driver work together to produce rich, full-bodied sound that is well-balanced across the frequency range. The speakers have a frequency response range of 70Hz to 40kHz, which allows them to deliver deep bass notes, as well as clear high frequencies.
One thing that sets the G5000 apart from other speakers in their price range is their use of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology. This technology allows the speakers to optimize the sound output based on the specific type of audio being played.
This allows the included audio modes to really enhance your listening experience. For example, when playing music, the DSP beefs up the bass notes and provides a wider soundstage.
Music mode really impressed me, Logic’s latest studio album sounded absolutely incredible. Logic tends to have really high quality production with super punchy bass and incredibly vocal tracks. The G5000’s coped with everything the track ‘Wake Up’ had to offer.
I was able to hear each instrument in the backing track and the main lyrics and adlibs sound superb.
When watching a movie, the DSP will prioritize dialogue and reduce the volume of background music or sound effects.
Gaming was great too. I tend to play using headphones but these are a good alternative for multiplayer games such as FIFA, Overwatch or Call Of Duty. Get a few friends over and game the night away, just don’t annoy the neighbors, these speakers can shake the roof tiles loose if you turn it up to 11!
Another feature that enhances the audio quality of the G5000 speakers is their use of a passive radiator.
Passive radiators ensures much improved bass response without the need for a dedicated subwoofer. The passive radiator works by using the air pressure generated by the bass driver to vibrate a separate membrane, which then produces additional bass frequencies.
Overall, the Edifier G5000 speakers are a fantastic choice for anyone looking for high-quality audio to enhance their gaming room / man cave / hangout room.

Score: 9.5 / 10

I tend to blow either hot or cold when it comes to RGB. I couldn’t imagine these speakers without it to be honest, they’re designed with gaming in mind and RGB compliments them just perfectly.
