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. Refused to cross ship a replacement even though I offered to prepay with a credit card as security. Other electronic companies are willing to do this so no reason why Bose would refuse. b.
  • Cons: Defective out of box.

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. I play classical piano and use a weighted Yamaha keyboard for practice (since I can't afford a Steinway D), along with a couple virtual piano programs which are sampled Steinway concert grand programs that run on my computer and connected to the keyboard via a MIDI cable.

bose 20 companion

sue, Crutchfield
28 January 2012
  • 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.

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. I have have had to download Equaliser apps from the app store to make them sound better.

Too bassy !!

andrewbriden, Amazon
11 December 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 through the walls and floor.

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 price tag. Yes, the design is sleek and they are very compact for the amount of noise they make!

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 . I returned to Amazon after few days - as usual great service from Amazon. Now I bought Harman Kardon sound sticks - much better sound and for half the cost as well.

Pas pour les mélomanes

Christophe H., Amazon
28 March 2012
  • Summary: Points forts : - finition et qualité des matériaux - pas de potard mécanique qui risque de mal vieillir - puissance de l'ampli - son "propre" qui ne sature pas même à haut volume - basses fermes et sans débordement Points faibles : - équilibre spectral descendant : l'accentuation du grave peut se corriger à l'égaliseur mais pas le manque cruel de haut-médium - spatialisation artificielle - compression dynamique Utilisation recommandée : cinéma (en particulier les films...
