Tuesday, January 23, 2024

Meet the Redragon Connie GS814 – your ticket to better sound without burning a hole in your pocket. These desktop speakers are all about easygoing vibes, ideal for kicking back with your favorite tunes or diving into some gaming fun. Let's take a laid-back stroll through what makes the GS814 a top pick for those who want an awesome audio setup without breaking the bank.

Designed with a sleek 45-degree angle, the GS814 combines plastic and a chic metal mesh grill for a visually striking aesthetic. Customizable RGB lighting adds that extra flair, making your speaker as stylish as it is functional. 

Inside each GS814 speaker enclosure, dual drivers deliver a powerhouse of sound – one for rich bass, the other for crisp treble. The right speaker, fueled by an external 12-volt DC source, maintains a consistent 24 watts of power, maximizing volume in Bluetooth mode.

The Connie GS814 effortlessly connects to PCs, TVs, and laptops, thanks to its Plug & Play feature. An 83-inch cable between speakers offers flexibility of placement, adapting to your spatial preferences. Total RMS output it's a cool 20-Watt via BT 5.0 and 3.5mm AUX modes, although volume is noticeably louder in bluetooth than wired.

Compact dimensions (8.07"L x 4.25"W x 3.35"H) and a weight of 1.3kg make the Connie GS814 suitable for various setups. Bluetooth and Auxiliary connections provide versatility, and LED Backlit elements enhance its visual appeal; however the RGB performance is somewhat lacking due to the minimal RGB lighting and limited RGB effects.

In a nutshell, the Redragon Connie GS814 makes for an ideal pair of beginner-friendly desktop speakers. Perfect for laid-back music sessions and gaming without breaking the bank. Plus, it's a breeze to use with its straightforward and user-friendly controls. 

If you're leaning towards a touch of premium quality, along with a bit more oomph and presence, check out the Mouthpiece GS813 and Andante GS812 bookshelf speakers.
