  • Summary: If you like music that has any amount of bass, these speakers are not suffice. As a big house, rap, rock, just about anything with bass fan, I am very unhappy.

Good audio but major issue led me to return them

  • Summary: Adequate audio quality but the lack of audio/power controls, and insufficient magnetic shielding to prevent awful audio interference from iPhone makes these speakers a poor choice for the money.
  • Pros: Decent sound but nothing to write home about.
  • Cons: Lack of audio &amp; power controls; absolutely audio interference when an iPhone is placed nearby

  • Summary: First of all I do not like Bose products. This was my first purchase and I only bought these because I was in Bogota and there was NOTHING else available. These were what I expected. No tweeter means there were no highs to speak of. I also found the bass to be quite boomy which is what I expect the general uninformed public would like. There was noticeable noise when no music was playing as well as a pronounced hum.
  • Pros: Readily available
  • Cons: no highs, boomy bass, noisy electronics with hum

"Surprisingly Unexceptional"

jholber2, CNET

  • Pros: Good mid and vocal frequency reproduction. Excellent clarity in online / video chat. Good bass.
  • Cons: Lacks the wider frequency range of a larger system. Narrow dispersion - coverage suffers at distances wider than your monitor. Price. No on/off switch...

Really disappointed

Boz, B&H Photo
2 January 2009
  • Summary: I was really let down by these speakers. Although I am more than somewhat sound/tech savvy, I didn't really subject these speakers to anything that demanding. A simple iTunes play list was all. And my first reaction was, "Wow, great bass." but what I slowly learned was that it was over compensating for lack of everything else. These speakers could barely handle the high ends put through it with a reduced preamp level through the iTunes equalizer.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact
  • Cons: Distorted Sound, Poor Sound Quality

Bose in name only. Not in sound.

QK Shopper, Amazon

  • Summary: I have and have used a lot of speakers, including those for computers. I have just tried out these Bose speakers. They are very disappointing for the price. I believe that the Altec or Creative types for around 30 bucks just as good. These are highly overrated. I like, Bose, too. I have two different pairs of their headphones and love them.
