Tiny, expensive, and not bad

BobMac, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought these for one reason: they're the perfect size to fit under my monitor. I was hoping for passable sound quality, and that's what these deliver. There's no deep bass, and there's no natural highs. The one tiny speaker has been equalized to reproduce more than it's naturally capable of doing, so it sounds fake. As long as you don't expect too much from these speakers, you'll probably like them.

lows and highs are cut off; but they are cute

S. L., Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: Monitors?? A pair of $20 speakers would make better monitors. I just graphed these speakers and they're just off by a mile. The mids are way exaggerated. The lows (below 80hz) are cut off. The highs (above 13khz) are cut off. These are monitors? But they are cute and they do produce quite a bit of bass for its tiny size. It has these hard plastic drivers behind the front firing drivers that compress air that exits perpendicularly out thru thin double side slits.

"Great AND Terrible"

CNET
21 June 2011
  • Pros: Great detail at moderate-low volumes, truly an engineering miracle for the sound they produce.
  • Cons: they DO NOT, i repeat, they DO NOT JAM OUT. If you like to dance in your underwear to your favorite tunes, skip these. They will not reach sound levels that will make you dance. lol.

"Ok for such a tiny speaker but not worth the $'s"

filmfilmfilm, CNET
15 April 2011
  • Pros: Tight, clean sound, very small so very portable, probably best tiny speaker out there
  • Cons: Price of course, they are well made of great materials, but I do not think they are worth over $400 once you pay the taxman. I guess the bass is good for such a small speaker but it's not very good really. No subwoofer out put, this would make it fantast

Nice design, but subpar sound quality for the money

Anthony D, Apple Store
27 September 2009
  • Summary: These speakers are very nicely designed, but despite the claims the sound is still tinny sounding. The power adapter is large and equally the size of a 3rd speaker. I returned mine as speakers with equal or better sound quality may be purchased for half the cost. IMHO you are better served spending your money elsewhere.

"poor base, almost tinny sound in comparison to 2.1"

danman419, CNET
15 June 2009
  • Pros: small size, looks great, sounds okay for no subwoofer
  • Cons: has some low range, but still sounds really tinny compared to even the low end (harman/karmon) 2.1 system that came with my computer 6 years ago

Decent

Luke Skywalker, Amazon
28 September 2008
  • Summary: I am not a speaker expert but the sound quality is pretty good. Amazing how much sound comes out of this little item. Very easy to use. The only con is that its overpriced. $400! that's just insane. I have owned sub $100 speakers that had a comparable sound even though its not as small as these Bose speakers. I guess that's how the Bose brand is. Bottom line, if money is not an issue for you, these speakers are excellent. Otherwise, don't even bother with them.

MusicMonitor still has many shortcomings

Jeffri Lingo, Amazon
23 April 2008
  • Summary: Wow! Honestly my friends came over to my home and was startled with the sound. The first thing they do, they were all looking for the subwoofer. The sound was just big and the bass was strong filling up the entire room. They couldn't believe the sound was coming out of just a pair of speakers without any Sub. Well, they are all very interested in getting one until I told them the price. Then they felt MusicMonitor was not worth that much money.

Bose gone mad

Dino Trakakis, Amazon
19 April 2008
  • Summary: In my opinion, this is a $200.00, speaker, at best! Bose has gone mad with it's pricing....... The sound simply does not match the price tag.
