Summary: Companion II Series I - King of $100 & Under Richness?
With Bose being well known, and being a household name in today's audio world, there's been a lot of hit and miss.
Bose has also made big mistakes.

Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
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.

Summary: I just set these up and what a difference. I've been using old speakers that where good quality and have lasted a long time and are still good, but there is this white noise sound that is so annoying and loud when music isn't playing. Anyway, that was the reason I went with these Bose.
