Summary: Just OK. I ordered this set to replace my original Companion 2 speakers. There was no comparison. The sound now seems flat. I added an equalizer app and I still couldn't achieve the deep crisp sounds. When I increased the volume it got scratchy. I returned them.
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.
Summary: The speakers are very well packed and are definitely well built. However I don't like their sound at all. The bass overpowers the rest of the tonal range: mid tones and high tones are blunt or absent. Tinkering with the equalizer is required to get a somewhat balanced sound, which is a bummer.
Summary: These speakers are OK. They are not as great as the price makes them out to be. The sound is a little flat and it is hard to get bass out of them. Overall they sound fine. But they sound just as good as my Logitech Z-5 USB powered speakers. And those are USB powered.
Summary: The bass on these speakers is way too loud, It drowns out the treble, voice sounds muffled. I was very disappointed in the Bose brand. I know it is the cheapest pair you can get from Bose, but you would think they would still be better than the $50 speakers I had before, Nope.
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.

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.
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.
Summary: These speakers sound pretty good, but I find I have them on the maximum volume nearly all the time. I tried using headphones (jack on the right main speaker) because I couldn't hear the movie I was watching while I was on the treadmill (I didn't expect the speakers to be louder than this).
