Summary: I have owned a pair of Bose 301-Vs for about a year now. I also purchased a pair of 201-Vs and 161s at the same time in order to replace older speakers I owned for use in a family room setting. Additionally, I purchased two pairs of the Bose metal speaker stands for the 301s and 201s and they make a great difference from a sound quality standpoint. So, my observations related to the 310s so far: 1. Great sound in a small package.
Summary: I have been using this speaker for the past few months. I also own another pair of speakers from a reputed internet-direct company. The Bose speaker and the other speaker are so different. My other speaker is precise, accurate and almost perfect that there is nothing to complain. Only thing is that I don't find it musical. It is near perfect but not enjoyable and does cause some ear fatigue over longer listening periods. The Bose on the other hand is great.
Summary: If I could give 2.5 stars, I would. First of all, it's outrageous for Bose to claim that they have "high quality" parts and assembly when they charge $300 for speakers that aren't even magnetically shielded. The claim is that these are great for your home system, but you have to keep it 2+ feet away from your TV and other electronics because of the magnetism.
Summary: Well my friend should have known better than to buy these very, very average sounding speakers. Bose, I'm sorry to say just use the cheapest drivers and there build quality is suspect at best. Look for some reason certain people like Bose and fall for there preset audition room without any competition to compare them to. It's really hard to remember what a speaker actually sounds like after you leave the listening room in Best Buy!
A Speaker System that is a great space saver,and does not take up space
29 June 2013
Summary: Very satisfied with the Bose Series V speaker system,With a feature of a bookshelf design,these speakers sound like they are twice there size. Excellent space saver.With their rear projection design, you can fill the room easily with a beautiful balanced verity verity of music,no matter what choice of entertainment.
Summary: In the current world of internet ordering, not being able to physically audition different brands, it is difficult to buy home theater equipment, based on customer reviews...for you, because everyone has their own personal preferences. I have been in the middle of upgrading the HT system from a Bose 321, that I purchased back in 2006, so I was hoping the Bose 301's would be a great upgrade, and despite the reviews, was optimistic with these speakers.
