Augustine Lehecka, Amazon
28 March 2015
  • Summary: Bose speakers produce hiss - many people don't notice because it drowns in the noise from the fans. My system is situated in another room, screen connected by HDMI keyboard, mouse by the USB. The BOSE system produces his even when it is not connected to the computer.

I was very disappointed with these

  • Summary: I was very disappointed with these. All they did was exaggerate how bad my TV sound is, not improve it. I'm returning them, and I so wanted them to work. The ONLY solution I have found are my wonderful headphones...but when it comes to really tinny TV sound, these speakers are not the solution.

so so

  • Summary: Not impressed. sound is muffled, no on-off indicator light so you can't see if they are on easily. no separate tone control. Look elsewhere for computer speakers. Maybe worth checking out if they are on sale but overall not impressed with these speakers.
  • Pros: nice and clean looking.
  • Cons: muffled sound, not impressed at all. no separate tone control.

This is a Bose product? Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Matthew C Corder, Amazon
4 April 2014
  • Summary: I've had a couple sets of mid-range Bose tower speakers plugged into my stereo over the years, and I've been quite happy with all of them. Sure, they tend to be a little pricey, but I felt the quality was worth it and it's not like they have to be replaced very often.

OK but not great

Steven L. Cornelius "Movie buff", Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I am a long-time fan of Bose speakers and have bought several pairs over the past 30 years. I bought these for use with my iMac. No problem hooking them up but the sound volume is not great and they sound tinny. In fact, the speakers built into the iMac have better sound quality and volume.

Disappointment

  • Summary: I'm a long time user of Boss products, from my 901 speaker to their head phones. But these computer speaker were a disappointment, I purchased these a few years back and I hope Boss has improved them.

Mediocre sound and poor components

rhkim, Amazon
12 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought these Bose speakers because I wanted a small 2.0 speaker system with decent sound for a modest price. I work in the film industry and sound is important to me, but I have dedicated high-end speakers for work.

Not good

Rene R., Newegg
2 May 2012
  • Pros: They sounded fantastic when i first bought them.
  • Cons: After 5 or so months i started hearing odd crackling and buzzing noises coming from the speakers, at first i just ignored it, but the noise got louder over time, to the point where i couldn't stand it anymore. This leads me to believe that bose doesn't use very high quality parts when they're man...
