    I never turned above 25% since the whole house can hear you. Speakers are low key flexing. I wasn't looking for sub woofers tub thumping excessively. Bose delivered.

    ANOTHER AMAZING PRODUCT FROM BOSE!!!

    Posted .

    The Bose® Companion® 20 Multimedia Speaker System are the best 2-piece speakers that I have ever heard. The sound is just unbelieveable! I am able to hear sounds in songs that I haven't heard before. I compared these speakers to the Companion® 2 series II speakers and there is a huge difference. First of all, the Companion® 2 speakers have very little bass compared to the Companion® 20's. The 20's have amazing bass thanks to its advanced port design (see product pictures). Once you hear these speakers, you will be searching the floor for a subwoofer when really there isn't one! The Companion® 2 speakers were made for someone who will be sitting right in front of their computer and speakers. That is why it doesn't sound good when you're not close to the speakers. But, the Companion® 20 speakers have been designed so that you can enjoy the sound when you are sitting in front of the speakers, or even when you are across the room (see product video). Next, the Companion® 20 speakers are very well built. They don't feel cheap at all! You can notice that Bose® has used the best materials for it. Also, the control pod makes it very easy to change the volume, mute the sound, connect headphones, and to connect another device via the AUX input. These speakers will blow you away with its sound quality. If you are unsure about buying this product, go to your local Best Buy and listen to them. Also, compare them to other brands. This will help you appreciate the Bose® speakers more. You will also see the Companion® 5 speaker system at Best Buy. The only difference in them is that the they have more bass and that is because it comes with a separate subwoofer. But the problem is that the price is $400!! I wouldn't want a seperate subwoofer because the Companion® 20's have very good bass and they will be easier to move around or to take somewhere else. Whereas the Companion® 5, you will need to carry a huge subwoofer if you want to take the speakers somewhere. Overall, I would highly recommend these speakers because they are the best speakers you will find for $250. I've been a Bose® fan for a long time and I always will be one. Bose® is the best brand you can go to for sound. If you don't belive this, go to their website and see the large variety of Bose® products. Also, research the company's history. The company started in the 1960's whereas other known companies like Beats® by dr.dre have started in like 2004. This show how long Bose® has been improving their sound for all of their products. I hope this review was helpful and you won't go wrong buying these speakers.

    An excellent pair of computer speakers

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    Most people don’t pay much attention to computer speakers. Those who are interested in good quality sound will make a strategic investment. Others will just get anything to get by because the situation is just not that serious. If you fall into the latter category than the speakers or not for you. If you are an audio file and really care about the sound that comes from your computer or your laptop then you may want to consider the investment in the speakers. The reason why I called him an investment is because they are expensive. You can find plenty of other speakers that are a quarter of the price. However if you want a set of desktop speakers that House good bass treble and mid range without having to use a subwoofer you may want to consider the speakers. Pros - they are nice looking and solidly built. They sound great and they save space by not including a bass subwoofer. Cons - they are expensive (comparatively speaking), they only come in one color (silver), and the wires can be obtrusive (in addition to having the wires that connect the speakers to the computer and the speakers to each other you also have another wire that connects the speakers to a physical sound pod that controls your sound on mute functions and also serves as a headphone port). Final verdict- if you care enough about high quality sound and you have a big enough budget for computer accessories then you should definitely consider these speakers. Are they worth the $250 price tag? Well that’s entirely up to you.

    Great sound from small speakers

    |
    Posted .

    I had been wanting to try Bose speakers for a long time since I also have Bose AE2 headphones which sound great! These speakers also sound very good. I am surprised that they sound as good as they do from such a small set of speakers. I was debating these Bose Companion 20 or Companion 2 series 3 speakers and I decided to go with companion 20 based on product description saying they sound good across a room. They really do sound good from a distance. I think actually even better than sitting close to them. I don’t have these hooked up to a computer. I have them hooked up to the headphone jack of an Insignia shelf system I recently bought and have set up in my bedroom. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money for a Bose wave radio and figured this may give me some of the sound of that. I’ve Never listened to a Wave radio so I can’t judge based on that. Overall very satisfied. I will just add that I do think the price is high when you don’t get a sub woofer. It does have great bass and they don’t need one however. I just think these would be a much better value at $150 or $199 and it makes me wonder how much better the Bose Companion 5 sounds with the sub woofer. I just didn’t want to spend the $399 that those cost. I almost forgot to mention that, like most other reviews the circle volume control pod is nice and has a very nice feel and build quality to it. I didn’t really need it considering how I am using these. I just use the remote from my stereo to turn up volume but if I ever hook them up to my Macbook it’s nice to know that they have the easily accessible volume adjustment.

    Newer PC sound system solution

    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    Had to replace a much larger 3 piece Bose PC speaker system with standalone sub-woofer and was skeptical if the sound would be adequate. It definitely was and is a great (higher end $) PC solution. Would be greater if Bose had designed the external L-R wiring to be be reversed based on proximity to PC tower under the desk. But other than that - first rate sound for PC

    Since these speakers do not have a subwoofer, I was concerned that the bass response would not be all that great. The bass on these speakers is great. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. Highly recommend these Bose speakers.

    Another Great Bose Sound Solution

    In a word: dope! The sound is awesome. I did have to buy the 6-ft extension cable (from Bose directly), because the cable connecting the left and right speakers was just slightly too short. The provided cable, however, is longer than you read (I read 3 feet), but it is probably closer to 4 feet.

    Music sounds excellent. You can hear a lot of detail. Can get very loud. Looks really nice too. If you have any rgb lighting, the speakers will reflect some of the light. There is bass, but prob not as much as one with a big subwoofer. You won’t be disappointed.

    I needed an update from my very old Altec Lansing computer speaker system. I wanted a compact set, mid price point, with better sound for playing music, watching videos and picking up phone calls. The Bose Companion has met expectations in all three areas. Set up was quick and easy. I also own a "Bose Box" that is decades old and trust that these speakers will also go the mile.
