very good speakers, highly recomend
Posted by: treker88 from: Long Beach CA on
Value for price, these speakers are a good value. I've listened to some highly touted desktop speakers like Audioengine A5's for example, and the Bose C20's blow them away. The Audioengine A5's are $325 a pair in basic black, so much for value, Bose C20's win.
Sound quality, highs and mids are excellent, well dispersed and clear respectively. Bass is always a problem for small speakers, and the C20's preform well above average in this area. For rock, pop, country and most program material their bass is just fine. However, for material like ambient music: Biosphere, Solar Fields, Brian Eno to name a few, the C20's while pretty good, won't out preform or equal a good floor standing speaker with dual eight inch woofers. However, one can listen to material with really deep bass and have a good experience. These speakers have very good dynamics for their size and produce room filling sound.
Compatibility, no issues here, they will work with anything.
Appearance, they look great
Over all, like I said, very good speakers, highly recomend, glad I bought them.

Nervous to buy without reviews but glad I did
Posted by: suedoc from: Jersey City, NJ on
I just listened to Shostakovich Symphony No. 5 and I'm in heaven. Great clarity of instruments, balance, very realistic sounding. I've been listening to a wide range of music and it all sounds good. OK, you won't get the thumping bass of a subwoofer but the bass is more than adequate. The "natural sound" does sound a little different than other speakers.I wasn't sure about it at first, especially with pop and rock, but now i don't think it takes away from the accuracy of the music andI I got used to it and started loving every song. Big gripe - cord from speaker to computer too short - barely 4 feet. I moved my tower until I decide if I'm going to get a longer one. Nice speakers, reasonable size, pod to control volume easy to use. And yes, Bose is expensive, there are cheaper speakers out there that sound great but overall I am happy with my purchase.

Better than advertised!

The Bose company has many detractors and many admirers. This is for those who are open minded and un-biased. After reading many reviews and hearing lots of speakers, I decided on these. I am so glad I did. I am an audiophile and musician with lots of different tastes in music and have a vast library of music and movies. How do they get that 5.1 effect from just 2 speakers? How can I be hearing sound from behind me while using 2 speakers. Low volume, high volume, accuracy is the word. No over emphasized bass, or treble. As close to the original performance as possible. Stereo imaging and soundstage is great. Hey, my mercedes has 8 Bose speakers. I figure if it sounds so good in my car, then it must sound good in my office. You pay for what you get. These are worth every penny. They are easy on the eyes and easy to use. Classy too. Let the rockers go for their super loud bass. These 20's leave you feeling refreshed, not possessed.

Great speakers for great sound at regular levels..
Posted by: Raintitan from: Missouri on
I've had quite a few computer speaker sets in my time. When my Logitech THX speakers quit working a few weeks ago, I headed out to replace them. I was expecting to get the Klipsch THX 2.1 speakers but after listening to the Bose in store I realized that I don't really need volume....I want quality. If I need volume and bass nothing beats the Turtle Beach gaming headphones. So, I grabbed these and expected I might return them.
After a few weeks, I can say that I'm incredibly happy with these speakers. Great sound quality and the perfect set for most people. Are they worth it? They are if you like the sound and have the money to make these a great add-on to your computer setup. If you are more budget oriented you can do nearly as well for less.
Of particular note is how nice the mute and value control is...super smooth and high quality. A little thing that goes a long ways.

Best speakers ever
Posted by: TTornado from: South Bend Indiana on
I have owned lots of different pc speakers cost ranging from $50.00 all the way up to $150.00. Could not find anything that would even come close to these by far the best 2.0 speakers out there far more superior then any 2.1 speakers I have had in the past. Worth every penny best money I have ever spent cant go wrong with these Beautiful Bose Companion 20's. Sound AMAZING!!! with all types of music.

I bought these for my iMac and I am amazed. I did not read any reviews because I wanted to get what I thought sounded good. And these do!
The bass is amazing for just 2 speakers and the sound, crystal clear. I listen to hard rock music and I found no issues that the "1 star reviewer" reported.
If you want high end sound from your computer and media, get these. Bose has proven again they are the leader in sound.
