Edifier MP230 Retro Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review 3

Any links to online stores should be assumed to be affiliates. The company or PR agency provides all or most review samples. They have no control over my content, and I provide my honest opinion.

In an attempt to give myself a little break from posting for the next few days, I am giving away some old review samples.

The first giveaway is for the Edifier MP230 retro design portable Bluetooth speaker.

The Edifier MP230 is probably the most attractive Bluetooth speaker I have ever reviewed, though the Marshall Emberton II is a close second.


  • Total Output Power: 10W+10W(RMS)
  • Frequency Response: 70Hz-13kHz
  • SNR: ≥80dB(A)
  • Audio Input: Bluetooth /TF card / AUX / USB-C port
  • Battery Capacity: 2500mAh / 10 hours
  • Dimensions: 162×84.5×96.5mm
  • Weight: 0.85kg

Edifier MP230 Summary

This is a small Bluetooth speaker that is designed for indoor use as it lacks an IP rating. You can, of course, take it outdoors, just don’t throw water over it.

It is an excellent speaker considering its size and price, but due to it being quite small, it is best suited to listening at moderate volumes. Don’t expect room-filling sounds in a massive room or to have a party with it.

I’d say the sound performance is on a similar level as the more expensive Marshall Emberton II. So it is good value for money, just not as durable as the Marshall.

Battery life is good enough at 10-hours, and it charges from USB-C, so you can always power it via a powerbank.

This currently sells for £99.99 on Amazon, and I think it is well worth the money. Or you can enter my competition and try and win it for free!

Edifier MP230 Giveaway

To be clear, this is a review sample, so it has been used. I still have the box, so it is as new.

To enter, please follow me on Twitter (@mighty_gadget) or Instagram (mighty.gadget) and leave a comment below stating your Twitter/Insta handle and why you would like to win the Edifier MP230. You can follow both social accounts, but you don’t have to.

I will announce the winner on New Year’s Day at some point, depending on my hangover.

I will then aim to post it at some point in the first week of January.

This is for the UK only.

    Because I just miss listening to music blasting out of speakers, sitting in the middle of it. Rather than listening via my phone or headphones. I spent so many years sat in a room surrounded by music, and it’s that, that I miss most (rather than the physical record player or cd player).

  20. For the first time in 30 years (previously foster carers) we have our home to ourselves and have decided to do a large room up as a ‘retro style’ games room – where we can relax, play games and listen to music. We have just built our own ‘Space Invaders’ machine and got a ‘retro looking’ record player but we really would love this as it would be enough for us and our room and would look great! Being able to take it to other rooms in the house is a real bonus – thanks for the chance – Happy New Year

  25. It’s super stylish and a great portable size which means it’s perfect for having in my office whilst I’m working, moving to the bedroom when I’m ironing, and having in the kitchen whilst I’m cooking.

  26. @Lenwells67Lenny

    Love the retro feel and vibe of some new gadgets, and this would fit in well with my retro life I’m living at the moment

  27. We could do with this at our HDU work desk, the one we have is always distorted. We work in critical care and the nurses appreciate the low music in the background, it reduces the stress levels.
