Too bright and voices not natural

trader22, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: Purchased to replace a Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 that died (failed to power on). Sounded "ok" in store demo and expected better at home in a quiet room. Unfortunately, the sound quality, at best, was equivalent to computer speakers costing half as much.

Defective out of box

Mo, Crutchfield
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Defective out of the box - the input at the rear of the speaker does not have the same definition/quality as the input at the volume knob which is much better. Bose tells me they are supposed to be better. I realize there is always defect but for a new product, Bose: a.

Bass Heavy, boxy sound.

Macauley86, Amazon
24 March 2012
  • Summary: I like the sound from the Bose Companion 3 and 5 models. The Companion 20, however, are not balanced; midrange and treble are drowned by the bass, and the overall sound is boxy. You can do far better for around the price with the or

Not good for my needs

DRC, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: My intended use for these speakers is most likely much different than most, but thought I'd pass along my experience just in case someone else may be considering these speakers for the same reason.

  • Summary: speakers appear to have a short in them, static comes out of the left speaker every so often. I payed a lot of money for them and I feel they should be perfect. Please let me know if this is common or are they deffected.

Real Problem

areyouthefarmer, John Lewis
15 December 2014
  • Summary: Like the sound and they're really cool looking with my mac. My problem is with the volume control. It doesn't increase in volume or lower smoothly but in a very jerky manner. So getting a volume that suits the time of day, i.e. late at night, is frustrating.

Too much Bass

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: I use these with a number of devices, phones and tablets but one recurring theme is far too much bass on the music. Its not just the exotic hip hop and drum and bass that takes my fancy occasionally, its also on lighter jazz and pop songs too. The radio over iplayer sounds awful too.

More bass than my ears can tolerate!

BerlinerPooh, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased these from Amazon to replace a set of Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II Multimedia Speakers because I found they lacked the sound clarity I was looking for. While I am not an "expert" when it comes to breaking down sound specs, I am not deliriously happy with the Bose set considering the...

Too bassy !!

andrewbriden, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: It amazes me that other people are praising these, the bass is so overwhelming that it pretty much ruins whatever you're playing, whether its dance, rock, folk or soundtracks. Not only are they uncomfortable to listen to, I'm not able to relax knowing that the bass is so intrusive and travelling...

Not that great

M. Sivalingam "Siva", Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this recently from Amazon - It looks great and I liked the idea of having a compact system with out subwoofer. But the sound quality was a let down - I thought it will get better over few days but still not that great. I might be picky but the Bass seemed inadequate to me .
