Summary: I purchased the Bose Companion 2 Series III speakers to fortify my Sony Bravia flat screen in my bedroom. I had been using a set of PC speakers, but my home is about a mile from an AM radio station and I was hearing the station coming through the old speakers.
Pros: Compact size, two audio inputs, good volume levels, low noise floor, solid connections, no distracting power LED.
Cons: Booming lower midrange, high-end roll off, no tone controls
Summary: These are really nice speakers, clear, precise crisp sound, full range and for their size, amazing, but consider this, the next speakers from Bose for a computer are almost $250, you get what you pay for, where these let the side down is when a graphic equalizer is used, bass range frequencies...
Summary: These speakers are nothing special. I expected a little more from speakers that cost $100. I mostly play FLAC files on my computer so the quality of the music is there but you just can't tell. I do like that it has some bass.
Excerpt: Banging for the bucks! ...& by that I mean, these speakers THUMP much harder than they hit your wallet! That could be a good or a bad thing, depending on your preference, environment & needs. At lower volumes, with interference from traffic through open windows...
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality, Super Economical
Summary: They have good bass for their size, but highs are lacking, and their hardware is built with cables that you cannot replace. When these go out (and they will), rather than replace the cable you have to buy a whole new set of speakers.
Pros: Good Bass
Cons: Muddy highs, bad hardware that isn't a replaceable component.
All speakers have a sweet spot. That sweet spot is the volume where ...

Summary: Weak. These speakers still sound tinny, priced at $100. They're not worth it. What to look for -- Flat response across the entire audible spectrum. That means that you get even output at all frequences that the ear can hear, and output that the body can feel at sub audible frequencies (30 hz - 45...
Summary: I had the chance to compare these directly to a pair of Creative Gigaworks T20's and T40's. The Bose are more compact and not as prone to falling over a the T20's, but at least to my ears they did not sound as good as either speaker from Creative.
