Edifier G33 BT Unboxing

Edifier G33 BT Review

Out of the box, it includes:

  • Edifier G33 BT itself
  • Documentation
  • USB-C charging cable
  • 3.5mm audio cable
  • Microphone rod

When I first used the headphones, the first thing that I’ve noticed was how light it was. While I would commend that, I can’t do the same when it comes to the comfortability of the ear muffs. It was somehow just a little too tight for me. Then again, this is a rather subjective matter as everyone has different sizes of ears but it’s worth to take note. 

As for the looks, it certainly fits the bill as a ‘gaming headphone’ thanks to the RGB lights that’s on hand. So if you want to be a little bit flashy, well it does its job adequately. The headphones uses a 40mm driver and on my first try on hearing with it (wired connection), it was rather loud. You might want to turn down the volume a lot to get the level that you’re comfortable with. Continuing on the topic of being wired, the 3.5mm headphone jack cable is kind of short, which is a shame if you want to connect the headphones with your PC/laptop. 

Testing it out wirelessly, I immediately found that it was a lot softer. Not only in terms of volume but as for the microphone quality as well. You can definitely adjust the settings through the application of your choice such as Discord and what not however. What’s good about the headphones is that you are able to connect not only to your PC but also on mobile devices via Bluetooth. As mentioned earlier, the volume is rather low in wireless mode but you can opt to turn on the gaming mode by pressing the G button. I’m not really a fan of loud bass but it does make a difference when you play shooting games such as COD Mobile where you can hear footsteps easily. 

Switching to the battery side of things, Edifier touts that the Edifier G33 BT can last up to 48 hours with the lighting turned off and 24 hours with it on. From my experience, it does live up to its promise. While I didn’t use them non-stop for that amount of time, I managed to use it for around 5 days before finding the need to recharge.

Should you get the Edifier G33 BT?

The Edifier G33 BT retails at RM279 currently. While I think it is still a decent price, I actually fancy the quality of their wired headphones, specially the Edifier G2 II, which is a lot cheaper. However, if you are indeed looking for one without cables and offers you flexibility in connections, the G33 BT is an ‘Okay’ option to consider, if you’re fine with some of the issues that I’ve mentioned earlier in the review.
