I use a cheap and simple audio adapter for playback on my laptop. Sounds good enough and saves laptop audio output from wear and tear.

Using a cheap audio and cheap speakers might save money for you. But - if your client hears something that you don't - well - that's be embarrassing enough.

True true.

Any case I've made a comparison before using this Ugreen adapter and sound comes out a bit more detailed and well defined in mid-frequency and low-frequency range than that out of built-in DAC and amplifier on my latptop.

It is not a night and day difference but noticeable in some situations. So between the two, I choose Ugreen DAC and their amplifier over the built-in one.

As an added benefit, it has also cleaner preamps on microphone input for average VoP conferncing using ZOOM, WebEx, Skype and similar. The microphone input is not suitable for any serious voiceover work however, for that I use Sound Devices USB Pre 2.0 .

Might check your project audio settings in Edius to see if they are different from your audio software settings, i.e., 16-bit vs 24 bit.

I'm making video editing in a small room and every speaker works badly, even very good speakers will work badly. For example I listen a lot of bass but I listen well when I take them to another environment. Unfortunately I can't move those two speakers from that place. Although I have completely removed the bass from those speakers, I still listen bably. They give too many basses. I don't know how to solve this problem.

There should always be a space to find for placing small footprint near field monitor speakers, you could search for a pair of non branded ones (if budget is contrained) and listen to several of them for a flat response, while not perfect you could also use a proper set op headphones.

Headphones takes a lot of getting used to get the feeling of how it would translate to how it would sound on a loudspeaker set, so that would be my last option.

If budget is no constrain then there are plenty of top brands around that can have a big sound in even the smallest rooms...

To turn down the bass completely or use heavy eq'ing to get a flat response is a very wrong way to start, best to burn those a.s.a.p. :)

JBL 1 series 104 near field monitor seems to be targeted at monitoring in small spaces.

Any half decent audio engineer, will listen to any mix on a variety of speakers.
Many moons ago, back in the day, I worked with a record producer with a few top ten hits to his name, who told me he always transferred his mixes to cassette and listened in the car. I always check important mixes on my LG TV in the studio and take TV ads to the lounge to listen on a soundbar. I do not rely on just my Roland audio speakers... I can't afford Genelecs.

I agree with you Dave, I can't afford the larger Genelecs either :)

Indeed, in a perfect world you should listen to a variety of speakers as the target audience, your client, most likely will have sub par speakers, but if the editor (engineer) has a wrong set to begin with the end product quality will have to fully rely on luck, and that should never be the case...
