Edifier's new Desktop Active Monitors are also its first speakers that can double as fast chargers for the user's USB devices. The QR65s also provide "immersive" ambient Lumia lighting and support the LDAC codec. They are touted to deliver bass-rich Hi-Res Audio and Hi-Res Audio Wireless-grade audio thanks to their acoustics-friendly design.

Edifier touts its new QR65 Desktop Active Monitors as "a perfect fit for the multiple demands of modern life" as they can charge mobile devices while streaming up to 24-bit/96kHz audio from them. They are rated to deliver up to 65W (20V/3.25A) of power via their own USB-C ports, which are found next to a type-A port for up to 60W (20V/3A), thanks to "safe and high-efficiency" TurboGaN charging.

As speakers, each QR65 unit is equipped with "precision-tooled" 1.25-inch dome tweeters with silk diaphragms for crisp and bright trebles balanced with the "full-bodied" mids and "punchy" bass emanating from "long-throw" 2.75-inch drivers with aluminum alloy diaphragms.

They are found in an apparently acoustically optimal MDF enclosure augmented with in-house MazeTube Bass Reflex Channels and TurbMuff Air Noise Suppression Technology to minimize resonance. Edifier has also provided each speaker with its own optional aluminum stand to help prevent surface noise.

The 70W QR65s also boast internal infinite mirror-effect Lumia lighting that can be further customized using the Edifier ConneX App. They are available in either black or white for $369.99 per pair on sites such as Amazon from now.
