Summary: For day-to-day use, sitting at your desk with the speakers both pointed at your face and within 3 feet, these will work great. However you will experience similar and sometimes better results with lesser priced speakers. Note: not for use as reference monitors. Audiophiles beware.
Pros: The Bose Music Monitor speakers are compact and use very little power for the amount of sound they put out. Fidelity is good at lower listening volumes. Saves on desk space.
Cons: These speakers are really quite overpriced. For $300, you should expect greater power handling and RMS, though a larger footprint. Also, the frequency response is not consistent at all volume levels. At lower levels, you can hear louder highs and at higher volume levels the highs are much more su...
Summary: I have to think most of the other reviews here are astroturf. The quality of these speakers is very disappointing, especially at this price point. These are a huge step down from the slightly larger Cambridge Labs speakers I've had for 15 years that these were meant to replace.
Summary: i went to check the bose musicmonitors out today at the applestore; i knew they were expensive, but i like the idea of really-small, portable speakers for my desk (with a macbook). i figured if they sounded pretty good, they were worth the investment. i have to say i was disappointed.
Summary: With their latest entry, it is obvious that Bose is following the same pricing policy as with their headphones. In short, price them as high as possible. The customer will think he's getting a first-rate product. And one is less likely to criticize that for which one has paid dearly.
Summary: Received these in anticipation solely due to the fact that I need dual-voltage speakers. Note: Few Bose representatives even know what "dual-voltage" means. THESE ARE INDEED DUAL VOLTAGE (GOOD), but a poor "upgrade" from my Bose Companion 3 Computer Speakers (BAD).
Summary: Es gibt sicher Produkte aus dem Hause Bose, die ihr Geld wirklich wert sind. Habe ich auch. ( Soundlink mini und Kopfhörer ). Die Music Monitors allerdings gehören nicht dazu - meine habe ich wieder verkauft. Bose versucht viel Bass aus diesen Winzlingen zu zaubern.
