Quality speakers for affordable cost

  • Excerpt: Good speakers for video editing. I own a mac tower and the internal speakers are not strong enough for any type of audio work. These Bose speakers work well and give me a natural sound.
  • Pros: Durable

Too much base for my taste

  • Summary: I don't know how to tone down a reverberating base -- there are no controls on the speakers and my RealTek software doesn't touch it. Otherwise, they sound pretty good.

Returned - And I really, really wanted them to work.

  • Summary: I bought these speakers to replace my Soundsticks II. Just for the heck of it, I decided to compare the sound before I removed the Soundsticks from my desk. I wired it so I could easily flip back and forth between the Bose & Soundsticks. I played 15-20 songs flipping back and forth, had my wife flip it back and forth while my eyes were closed. The result: those Bose speakers sounded like they were in tin cans and the Soundsticks were noticeably better.

bass deficient among other things

jsa, Amazon

  • Summary: I spent several hours comparing the Bose 20's to my Bose Companion 2 speakers with the idea that I would upgrade. My conclusion is, forget it. The 20's are very bright and do a great job of accentuating detail, but since nearly all of that is in the high end the result is sound which is antiseptic, with no real warmth.

Good but be wary

  • Summary: I have these Bose speaker to use with my iMac. They definitely have power and volume, and they definitely have bass. Way to much bass and there is not any bass/treble control. I found that within itunes there is a graphic equaliser and this went some way to solving the heavy bass problem. However then I realised while after a lot of fiddling around, the speakers were OK on dance/classical, on rock they really failed.

Slight Disappointment

Frank "Photofox", Amazon
30 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought these to enhance the speakers on my Samsung Smart TV and, must say that the sound quality is very good. However! There is a persistent "Boom" coming from the speakers, as if the Base is turned up too loud (you can't adjust it.) It's not so noticeable on action or music programmes but is MOST annoying when watching a quiet programme such as Snooker, Documentaries or Plays.
