Disappointed

Paul Beaver, Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: After 3 years of owning the Klipsch Pro-Media 2.1's I decided to try the BOSE, as I was Sure the quality and sound would be comparable to the Klipsch...NOT EVEN CLOSE Now they are well built but if you want a Sub that KICKS and Studio Quality Sound(loud AND Clear), go with the Klipsch...Did I mention 1/2 the cost also?

Unreliable

Bruthabuz, Costco
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought a new computer that came with no speakers. I bought this Bose Companion 3 System two weeks ago. Actually, this is my second one. I could not get any sound at all out of the first one I bought. So I took it back and exchanged it for this one. This one has worked fine for the past two weeks. I was impressed with the quality of sound, about what I expected from a company with the reputation of Bose. Earlier this evening I began watching a DVD.
  • Pros: sound quality compact design
  • Cons: unreliable so far

Tinny Tinny Boom Boom

Frankly My Dear, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: If you want to blast your neighbors out of their skulls, this is the system for you. The bass thumps even at the lowest setting. Play it at a reasonably mellow low volume, and you'll notice how irritatingly tinny the satellite speakers are. People who complain, "no highs no lows, must be Bose" are dead wrong about this set. I say where is the mid range? Where's the mellow warm tones? I hate what this does to my music! Plus the speakers cut in and out.

NOT..worth the money.

Justmyopinion "nothing but the internet", Amazon

  • Summary: Overpriced at least by 2 and 1/2 times. Take my word for it. I have heard speakers perform for half a century. Using pro rata logic value received is about 1/3 of price. Just an opinion. ie was expecting alot more!

OK sound, poor quality of materials

John E. Scott, Amazon
2 January 2008
  • Summary: This is one of those products you really don't know what your getting. I found this out after a failure of the Companion 3's. A lightning strike took out the Companion 3's. So I decided to take them apart. Boy, what a eye opener! Being a amateur audiophile since I could read the title on a record album. I was sorely disappointed in the Bass driver which was made of a paper composite and a foam surround. Not what I expected from $250 speakers!

Not bad, but serious lack of midrange

Ghys, Amazon
26 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought these as a small system for ambient music in the dining room. Pros: - Stylish and elegant - Build quality (feels sturdy) - Deep bass; for sure, not comparable to the 12in subwoofer in my home theater (paid 3x the price of this entire system) but still quite impressive - Does not create hearing fatigue (probably due to low distortion) Cons: - Lacks midrange; the vocals, especially for male singers, seriously lack body. Same for saxophone.

Nice sound but....

Rodney Sawyer "roentgenslave", Amazon
23 September 2006
  • Summary: ....the quality is somewhat questionable. After owning these fine sounding speakers for a little over a year, they quit working. You would think that for this much money, that they would last a little bit longer. And, of course, they are only guaranteed for one year. So buyer beware.

All bass and highs, no mid - lousy and disappointing

G. Goldberg, Amazon
29 March 2005
  • Summary: Just got these from a local retailer and enthusiastically set them up, only to find the sound truly mediocre. It sounds like what it is: Two tiny speakers and a disproportionately huge woofer. There are no mids whatsoever. In fact, there's almost a mental disconnect between the shrill highs coming from the little speakers and the muffled thump coming from the woofer.

Slightly disapointed

Paul Pearce, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: While the Bose Companion 3 Multimedia Speaker System is fantastic as with all Bose equipment I was disappointed with this purchase as there is an annoying little rattle from one of the small speakers. Maybe I could get a replacement?

Bose ® Companion ® 3 Multimedia Speaker System

Fay Rushby, Amazon
13 October 2013
  • Summary: Based on the other Amazon reviews, I had high hopes for these speakers. Usual great Bose design, and as somebody else said, wonderfully packaged. Unfortunately however, the great designs and packaging could not make up for the sound the system produced, which really did not suit my ear.
