Summary: Sound is what you expect from Bose. Plenty of bass, no mid, plenty of highs. Very frustrating that input is limited .8" headphone jack on controller. Requires connection to computer via USB or turns off every 10min (you have to touch the stupid controller to keep it awake) which makes it useless for a TV system. No optical in. No RCA.
Summary: A bit about myself: I'm a big music-head. 23 Black and Native American; I listen to EVERYTHIING. Everything ranges from Jazz, Hip hop, Country, Classical, Reggae, Electronic, Techno, to movie scores, Latin, Rock, and Ambient stuff. I listen to music to help inspire me as a motion-graphics and 3D artist. I even create music myself if what I'm listening to doesn't fit my mood. (or for my projects) Perhaps about a year ago, I wasn't really big on my audio equipment at all.
Summary: Got these to rig up to my new samsung 3d tv...(well, not so new now LOL) .i used to have proper 5.1 surround sound system.. until i had kids.( yeah well, it all goes down from there )..and then one thing after the other! the wires and speakers were the object of their attraction and all went to shambles:( Sooo given the fact, i have a limited budget and can't afford cinemate by bose, I thought I'd give these a go!
Summary: I got the Bose Companion 3 Series in December of 2007. I am not quite satisfied with the output, the system is connected with my Sony Viao VGN-FW 180d.I play my music through ITunes and watch Blue Ray movies. There seems to be a major problem as there is often a loss of sound when you turn the volume on high. I presume there seems to be a hardware conflict and the BASS takes a beating if you blast the system.
Summary: I have a lot of Bose products, now including the Companion 5's. I think what I really should have purchased were the Companion 3's, and I still may exchange them.I've only owned them about a week now. There's something missing that I can't put my finger on. After reading some online reviews, there are three things I will try in order to improve the sound. 1 Position the acoustimass module forward facing instead of sideways, against the wall as I have it set up now.
Summary: Great set of speaker with high quality sound if use to listen to music only not doing anything else with your computer. the usb connection makes the sound choppy when doing something else. conflict with webcam solution from both Logitech Bose use either webcam or speakers.
