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.
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.
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
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: 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.
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.
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...
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...
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 .
