65W Fast Charging | Edifier Launched Halo 2.0 Abyss Monitor Speaker
Today, most consumer electronic products that require charging have widely adopted fast charging technology. Fast charging devices have evolved from being limited to chargers alone to being integrated into power strips, monitors, keyboards, and even computer cases. Almost everything can now be fast-charged at your convenience. But have you ever thought about having fast-charging capabilities for a speaker? On May 18th, in a product launch event, Edifier introduced the Halo 2.0 Abyss Monitor Speaker, equipped with a built-in 65W 2C1A GaN fast-charging module and supporting UFCS fusion fast-charging technology.
The design of the Edifier Halo 2.0 Abyss Monitor Speaker draws inspiration from the profound and vast universe, incorporating innovative design elements such as the infinity mirror and black hole. It features a transparent mirrored glass panel at the front, with built-in infinity ambient lighting that changes according to the music rhythm using FFT algorithm, and supports the selection of up to 16.8 million customizable light effect colors through the accompanying app.
The speaker unit is equipped with a dual-suspension sound-emitting structure. It utilizes a 1.25-inch silk dome tweeter for the high frequencies and a 2.75-inch low-distortion aluminum diaphragm driver for the mid-low frequencies, resulting in a golden acoustic combination. With the electronic 2-way frequency division acoustic design, the sound performance is layered, providing an excellent auditory experience.
The speaker cabinet is made of high-density thickened MDF wood, effectively reducing sound resonance, and the surface is covered with a lychee grain leather to enhance its premium feel. The light, sound, and electrical compartments are independent, and it incorporates a inverter tube measuring about half a meter long, allowing the low-frequency response to reach as low as 55Hz. The overall continuous undistorted power output of the speaker is 70W, easily covering a space of 50m², making it suitable for various applications such as computer desks and living room TVs.
What's even more amazing about the Edifier Halo 2.0 Abyss Monitor Speaker is that it integrates multiple USB fast-charging ports inside the speaker. It utilizes the mainstream high-frequency and high-efficiency GaN technology solution in the fast-charging industry, equipped with FTTC (full-time temperature control), FTFC (full-time fast charging), and SPA (smart power adjust) technology, achieving low heat generation and high-power fast-charging output in a small space.
The 65W three-port fast-charging module is integrated at the back of the cabinet, with two USB-C ports and one USB-A port. Both USB-C1 and USB-C2 support a maximum output of 65W, meaning you can achieve the best charging experience using either of the ports. The USB-A port supports 60W fast charging output. The fast-charging module also incorporates intelligent monitoring functionality, allowing users to monitor the fast-charging power, current, and voltage in real-time through the app, providing clear information about the charging status of the devices.
The 65W 2C1A GaN fast-charging module is compatible with various mainstream fast-charging protocols such as PD3.0 and QC3.0, enabling simultaneous charging of devices such as laptops, smartphones, tablets, and gaming consoles. Furthermore, the USB-C2 port supports UFCS fusion fast-charging standard and has passed TAF fusion fast-charging certification, ensuring better compatibility for high-power fast charging of Android phones from brands like Huawei, OnePlus, and IQOO.
