    Decent Sound

    Speakers provide decent sound. Main complaint is that the main audio cord from computer to right speaker is too short. If the computer is not adjacent to the right speaker, there is not enough cord to reach.

    Both cords are too short. It is impossible to adjust the width between speakers. Sound volume is low but what you can hear sounds good

    Bought these since the monitor I bought didn't come with any speakers. Work great and the sound output is better than I thought it would be. Only issue is the included cable that plugs into the one speaker and then goes to the computer is too short. When my desktop was sitting on my desk it just barely reached, and when I moved it to the floor I had to buy a new cable beforehand.

    Nice speakers that has great sound at mid to high range but not so good in the lows. Con is the fixed wire on the left speaker to the right a pain to fix if ever broken or damaged.

    Next time I will get wireless portable speakers. The wires are very cumbersome.

    Speakers deliver amazing sound. The only downside is that the cables that come with it are somewhat short.

    Great sound from a small footprint. But, if your computer is not on the right side near the right side speaker, the 3 foot audio cord is too short. I had to go buy a 6 foot cord.

    We actually hooked these up to my Grandpa's TV with an AV cable so he could hear the TV better. The sounds is outstanding on them. Lucky guy!

    These are excellent speakers. They have a nice bass and don't take up much space. My only con on this is it's a little hard to cable manage with these and hide the cables but other than that I love them.

    I love these speakers! The sound is full and rich, no matter what your music genre. Also has an extra port to plug a secondary device into (cord not included), so if a friend comes over, they could plug their phone in and you can listen to their tunes.

    The sound on these is great. I do wish I had the option to plug an auxiliary into the opposite speaker. As it is there's just too much extra wires.

    Very happy with my purchase. Recently purchased a Samsung 32" curved monitor. The monitor has no built in speakers. I looked at available standalone speakers. I selected the Bose Companion based on the size, footprint and sound quality. The only minus is that the audio cables are a little short. I had to buy an extension cable and coupler. Bose should increase the cable length by 2 feet. Other than that, excellent speaker.

    It worked out of the box unlike the logitek speakers I tried. Warning though the aux cable that comes with it is too small. I had to buy a separate 6 foot cable to get it to route through my desk to the desktop. Sigh - go to target to get that else pay 2x the price.

    Looking for some economical speakers for work desktop. Typical good quality Bose sound. Only downside was the cable needs to be a little longer. Had to switch the left and right channel to make it reach.

    I installed these speakers on my garage computer so I can play music and the sound is far superior than generic "tinny" sounding computer speakers. The price was right, brand name was good, these work well for my application. My only complaint would be the power plug, it's set up so that it takes up too much room on my surge protector, blocks other outlets so it had to be on the very end outlet. Other than that, great speakers for a computer.

    speakers are not representive of the Bose brand

    My speakers, I believe, have a short in the system. The sound goes in and out. It's as though the wires inside the speakers are not fully connected to the right part(s). However, when the sound is not going in and out, which is often, the speakers put out a great sound.

      Hello Elisabeth. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad to hear that the sound of the speakers is great, but we are sorry to hear about the trouble you are having with them. We would like to help you with that. One thing to try is another 3.5mm cable from the speakers to the computer, or to another source. That can help determine where the trouble is. Please give us a call at 800-380-4831 so we can help you troubleshoot that. We are here to help Monday through Friday 8:30am to 9pm EST and Saturday 9am to 7pm EST. Bose

    These speakers replaced the earlier version and they have improved sound quality. They don't have the a/v cable setup like the earlier version. I noticed the difference in the sound right away. You can't beat the price for Bose speakers.

    The speakers came at a price but after I hooked them up and hear them they actually beat out my 5.1 sound system that broke a few days earlier. The only downfall to these speakers are the cords are not long enough. The speakers BARELY fit on the sides of my monitor and to my PC. Other than excellent choice!

    Great computer speakers. I am a die hard Bose fan and these are a great set. You can feel the bass when watching a movie or listening to music. I like the fact that it has 2 aux inputs, one for my computer and another for my phone. Only thing to dislike is that the aux cord that comes in the box is too short.

    Simply the best 2.0 speakers I've ever purchased. Yes they're expensive, but I'ven't regretted making the purchase. The sound coming from this unit is simply beautiful with no compromise Bose sound. The biggest advantage aside from the high quality sound is no subwoofer which means eliminating some of the cable clutter. Highly recommended!
