Problems with Vista

Jman, TigerDirect.com
16 October 2009
  • Summary: At first I was very impressed but quickly started running into problems. The speakers would simply stop working for no reason. Did a quick google and found many people were having the same problem and it appears to be an issue with Vista.

Another naysayer

Robert L. Hiner, Amazon
26 January 2009
  • Summary: Sales people in large appliance stores invariably represent Bose equipment as the best, "if you can afford it." And among computer speaker systems, they say Companion 5 is the one. Well, at $399, most of us need more than brand recognition and manufacturer hype--the sales person's stock and trade.

  • Summary: these are the worst speakers ever. I had loads of trouble..they would crackle and then eventually just shut off. I finally got to the bottom of it and they are NOT compatible with vista. So if you are running vista dont buy them.

Buy other sound equipment

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Completely redundant volume control pod died after 6 months, expensive to replace and mediocre sound quality didn't justify cost. The Creative T40 series I replaced these with was half the money and much much better sound quality even without the sub.

Damaged

Pawel, Amazon

  • Summary: Absolutely not recommending it to anyone, not even an enemy. Worked fine for a day, than next day volume control completely stopped working. I've managed to get it working by turning off the system for a minute using the switch on the sub, than after a week it happened again, even the speakers...

Short Life Span

GC, FutureShop
17 December 2010
  • Summary: With new MacBook Pro's; forget it. Aside from that, as usual with Bose, they don't last very long in terms of quality. After 6 months, I had to replace them. Fortunately, you'll get much better sound quality for a much better price from Altec Lansing and they'll last you longer.

chère stridence

kiveuxkoi, Ciao
20 April 2014
  • Summary: Bose nous avait habitué au son physiologique que consiste à privilégier les parties haute et basses du spectre de fréquence histoire de nous en mettre plein la vue lors d'une première écoute en magasin. Avec ce modèle il le pousse à son paroxysme.
  • Pros: facilité d'emploi, puissance, finition et qualité d'aspect
  • Cons: un son sans finesse pour un prix exorbitant

  • Summary: ik ben van logitec overgestapt naar dit product maar te vergeefs is het niet de kwaliteit wat ik wilde...... het kan aan mijn voorganger is de verste verte niet aan zuiver geluid wel maar de lage tonen schieten hier enorm te kort en het is voor mij een echte teleurstelling wak muziek
