  • Summary: Lately i bought a pair of Bose 301 Mk2 in perfect condition. I must say that my Studiocraft 220 (manufactured by bose as well) sound better than the 301's particularly in the upper frequency range.

  • Summary: this was not good speaker spent almost five hundred dollars on these speakers and they were not a good value. They give good mid range yet otherwise worth less. Went on to put these as side surround speakers and up graded quickly to a pair of sony speakers I got off e bay for 40 dollars much better sound. The do not work well. Heard for years how great bose was and it was not a truth. will not make this mistake again.

  • Summary: When I'm hosting a party - trust me these speakers are working !! You can push 301 speakers in a house party and the sound is great. Your walls will feel it !! Placement is key because this is how these speakers were designed to operate.The best thing about bookshelves - they take up minimal space but pack a punch for their size. Great for home theater sound too.

  • Summary: fyi...these are the 2010 model. I guess I am another one of those guys who never really paid attention to the bose products. My father purchased the acoustimas 10 system around 1 year ago and was very happy with it. I thought it sounded 'ok' for a small system, but was not overly impressed. Over the years I have had some very nice Klipsch speakers and have also had a very nice pair of realistic optimus T110 speakers that were outfitted with new Klipsch crossovers.

  • Summary: Many high brow audiophiles turn up their nose at Bose speakers. They like to quote specs, complain that Bose speakers are lacking in brilliance, tonal quality and, "the sound color in the speakers". To the non-audiophile, sound color is BAD. It means the sound delivered is not pure and has color (it may lack something), or it may be tinny, muted or dull; this is color. The main cause of sound color comes from the amplifier.

  • Summary: Back when I was on a budget - 1987 or so - I purchased these speakers - paired with the best reciever I could afford at the time. My DG Berlin Philharmonic with Karajan conducting Holst or Beethoven sounded amazing, as did well produced pop fare like Crowded House. I noticed things on my Steely Dan CDs that I never heard before. But they LACKED mid-range punch. They didn't rock hard with everything. Some have said the mid-range was good but no high and no bass.
