Best Buy Customer Reviews
I didn't think they could get any better!!
Posted by: JoshW41 from: Wadsworth, OH on
I had purchased the Companion 2 Series II about 3 weeks ago, and I loved them. I thought they were perfect, and there was nothing I would change about them, until I heard the Series III.
You won't believe the sound difference. They are both fantastic speakers, but the Series III have a crystal clarity about them that is unmatched, and the bass response is incredible for such a small pair of speakers. The detail in these little bad boys is awesome. From every pluck of the guitar strings, to intricate cymbal work, these allow my music to shine.
I use them on my desk in my cubicle, and they are perfect at ANY volume. The best part is, the sound doesn't carry across the room/gets absorbed by the cube walls, so I can turn these up a little bit, and they make my day so much better.

Incredible sound, from a very small speaker system
Posted by: jrors93 from: NC on
I purchased these Bose speakers for my second computer at home. I purchased the Cerwin-Vega XD3's from Best Buy about 2 months ago, for my first computer. The reason I bring this up, is because I am very pleased with the sound quality of the Cerwin's, and I went to Best Buy to buy a second set of those. However, Best Buy was sold out of the Cerwin's, so for about the same price I bought the Cerwin's for, I decided to go with this Bose set, and try them out.
Once I got home, I hooked the Bose up to my desktop computer, and WOW, the sound quality from these small speakers is absolutely incredible! The vocals are spot on, and the mid level bass tones definitely have a presence in anything that I played through them. Also of note is the sound stage presence. I bring this up because, when you look at these speakers, they are just so small, that you just expect an adequate, at best sound from them. However, once you set the volume button on the speakers to the halfway up area, then adjust your computer's sound volume, you are going to be impressed at how loud and clear these speakers reproduce sound.
My conclusion in regards to the Bose speakers, is that if you have a budget of $100 to spend on speakers for your computer, these ARE the speakers to go with, hands down.

I don't want to trash the product as much as I'd like to warn folks about these speakers. If you're expecting "Bose" quality sound for $100 (like I was), you're in for a disappointment. It was actually pretty naive of me to believe I'd get great sound for $100 and no subwoofer.
That said, the speakers are decent if you just want good (not great) quality sound for a web browsing session or low level background music. For $30 more, you can get the Klipsch 2.1 computer speaker set-up. The difference in sound quality and volume is tremendous. Spend the extra $30. You won't regret it.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to return these Bose speakers to Best Buy and trade up to another set of the Klipsch 2.1.

BOSE!!! What else is there to say!!
Posted by: VLGSR from: on
BOSE!!! What else is there to say!! BOSE FOR LESS THAN A HUNDRED BUCKS THAT'S WHAT!!!! I LOVE these speakers. I'm a huge fan of music and the ONLY thing I've ever wanted to be in life in a Karaoke star in my shower!! These little puppies right here let the 100,00+ spectators in Victor's bathroom get a full range of that medieval torture device known as karaoke in the brightest color and sound that only Bose can deliver. The speakers themselves are a little heavy for desk top speakers, but then AGAIN - THEY'RE BOSE!!!! What else would you expect? These aren't running shoes folks! You don't WANT them all light and delicate!! I can't begin to tell you how many autographs I've signed in my bathroom simply because of Bose!! Catch my next concert tour going on now...no really, like I'm in the bathroom right now about to take a shower and ready to ROCK THE MASSES!!!!!!!

Wow, Great Speakers
Posted by: ZuluFoxtrot from: Beaverton, Or on
I really like this speakers. They sounded really good in the store and I was wondering if they would sound that good when I got them home. I opened up the box careful like in case I would need to re-box and return, but that wont be needed as they sound even better at home. I am an avid listener of music and had really good Logitech speakers prior to this but they were old and bulky with a huge sub that sat on the floor and took up too much room. With these speakers Iv'e downsized greatly on the footprint of space that my speakers take up and tripled the sound quality. I am that blown away. For the price and the sound I am super pleased.

High quality with simple system
Posted by: compeer from: on
These speakers produce very good sound with easy set-up and minimal clutter. There is no separate bass component, yet the bass produced by the two speakers is quite good. System set up is easy, with the right hand unit acting as the control with just three connections: one to the computer, one to the left hand unit, and one to a power source. Set the computer volume setting at 75% and use the speaker volume control to increase or decrease volume as desired. Sound range and quality is good with minimal distortion even at high volume levels. Price point is above competitors, but is justified given quality level and excellent customer service from Bose. Excellent web site service, and the ability to register product warranty on line stand out. Three small issues are annoying. There is no power light on the control unit, so it is easy to forget to turn off power when not in use. Also, there is no color differentiation on the volume knob, just a groove indicator, which makes it difficult to see where on the volume arc you are. Finally, the left hand speaker is hard wired, not a plug-in connection, meaning you have to be alert not to pull on the wire and degrade the connection.

Bose Speakers are decent, but the lows are missing
Posted by: Warren223 from: Manlius, New York on
As I said in my last survey, I waited a huge amount of time until I could speak to one of your staff, and then he was inexperienced and could not answer any of my questions about the speaker you carry. If I had it to do over again, I would have purchased the Klipsch set you had on sale that week for $30.00 more than I paid for the Bose set.

execellent speakers for a reasonable price
Posted by: dimples5 from: new york on
Iam just begining to learn about computers, a victim of being born too soon and starting too late.I cannot afford a new computer, so i at least wanted to be able to hear. Ordered the very best speakers i could afford since am on a fixed income. Its been my best purchase.

Absolutely the BEST speakers for the money!
Posted by: jason from: on
I looked at reviews (and pricing) of several office speakers prior to purchasing these. They aren't the cheapest, but for the price I can't see any comparison. They are different from a lot of computer speakers in that they do not have a detached subwoofer. However, Bose technology incorporates a low frequency design directly into these speakers. In fact, they are ported in the back. For general listening these speakers deliver rich and balanced sound. If you're into hard hitting base these may not be for you. If you want a surround system for gaming/movies these aren't for you. But if you want a solid pair of speakers for under $100 that you can buy (and return if needed) from your local Best Buy store you can't go wrong here. BTW...you also get the "Bose" bragging rights if that's important to you LOL.

Best speakers in price range
Posted by: MusicLoverOregon from: Eugene, OR on
These speakers are excellent! We have had them for about a month, and there is nothing we don't love about them. They were under $100, and there are no other speakers out there that even compare that are in this price range. They sound better than other speakers that cost more. We highly recommend these speakers.
