Summary: I bought these speakers for use with a laptop. I had some small laptop speakers but they lacked the necessary base. The Bose speakers, although they are small, feature that pleasant bass that my ears love. But these speakers don't match the quality of larger Bose speakers.
Pros: The small footprint of the speakers which have excellent sound. I also use the aux in for my small Grace Internet Radio.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised. The only disappointment I had was the speaker(s) not having a light or indicator to let me know if the speakers were on or off. They have much better sound than my previous speakers that came with my Dell computer.
Summary: These speakers work great for what I needed. Been doing some music downloads, and wanted a better presentation of what I have been doing over the tinny factory speakers that came with my pc. You can't go wrong with any Bose equipment----always quality.
Pros: Quality, sound, and size.
Cons: No separate volume adjustments for each speaker. one adjustment for both as a pair. No power light to instantly let you know if they are on or off.
Summary: These speakers are great. The frequency response isn't in specs but in my personal tests you can hear 70Hz-20kHz pretty well, not as good as monitors, but you can clearly tell that these speakers perform much better than their subsequent speakers, (being the Companion 2 & 3) sound less accurate and...
Summary: Definitely Sound Fills the Room. I upgraded my speakers with a subwoofer to the Bose Companion III. Setup was quick & easy, computer recognized the device immediately. The lack of treble and bass knobs requires some getting use to but the sound generated is fantastic.
Pros: Compact and space saving. Superior sound quality. Economically priced.
Excerpt: I purchased the Bose Companion 2 speakers for use at my desk with my laptop. I've had experience with a previous model and they've only improved. The sound is rich and strong from such a small speaker, the bass could be more, but without a subwoofer, its deep and strong enough for what most people...
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Great sound in a small package! These things have a definite "base" without an additional sub-woofer. Fir their cost, as well as their small size, the sound out put of these speakers is amazing. Like most things Bose, they are extremely durable and well made, out of quality materials.
Pros: Durable construction, of quality materials. Sall, compact size, good sound quality and response.
Cons: No remote, no substitute for full size speakers, and some may not liker the perceived enhanced base response.
Summary: I wanted these for my iPad when outside at the pool, They work fine, sound quality is good and they come with power and audio leads so all you need to do is plug and play. Volume is adequate for an average size room and they worked well outside even when the conversations got a little loud.
