5 out of 5 eggsGood set of computer speakers.

Pros: The sound quality is very nice for listening to radio, podcasts, audio and even music. For a 2.0 speaker system, they are very capable. While BOSE is somewhat controversial in the audiophile world for their sound trickery and special audio processing techniques, for a pair of computer speakers, they offer a really great product here. The speakers deliver a full, rich and pleasant sound with plenty of detail. Music from a high quality source sounds impressively detailed and crisp. The volume knob has a nice weight and the build quality of the cabinets is above average. These are built as you'd expect for about $100. Bass response is great for a 2.0 system. Most folks will be satisfied with the bass, especially people who listen to acoustic, jazz, classical or music produced before the 1990s, really. There is no static or noise at any volume levels.

Dual AUX inputs is handy. Cabinets are understated. No LEDs, no extra styling for no reason. Very professional and minimalistic looking, should blend into any pro workstation setup nicely.

Cons: I'd pay $20 more for built-in bluetooth pairing, though it does offer two AUX ports, so there are ways to work around this limitation. In a perfect world, it would have a digital input as well.

Other Thoughts: These actually would work nicely on a bookshelf to attach to an ipod, music dock or other device to bring music and radio to any room. I am not a fan of all of BOSE speakers and equipment but they really are the best option for good computer speakers at this price point, easily.

I did not purchase these speakers at Newegg, though I have purchased countless items here and written many reivews.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for.....

Pros: I needed to replace some 15 year old Turtle Beach sound system that started to hum and could not take the noise anymore. Read the reviews and figured how could I go wrong with Bose. If you like to listen to music these are not the speakers for you. Listening to news feeds or YouTube stuff they are fine but I am disappointed with "the sound of music". The price was right, you get what you pay for.

Cons: See above.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat speakers!

Pros: That clean, clear, full range BOSE sound. Very decent bass, even better than many 2.1 systems.
Absolutely no background power hiss. I can't tell they are on when my system is on but not playing any sound.
The volume range is impressive, from whisper quiet to painfully loud.

Cons: Absolutely none

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Speakers

Pros: +Tone Auto adjust, able to hear low sounds without adjusting volume
+Arcade / THX movie styled sound quality
+Magnetically shield

Cons: -price was more than I was planning on, but worth it.

Other Thoughts: I was looking to upgrade my 20 year old speakers, and wanted similar size with a headphone jack. This was one of the few that matched. I choose this over similar priced speakers because I dislike having to constantly change volume when I'm watching a movie where the scene is very quiet. These speakers solve that issue -I can also hear sounds I couldn't before, like the wind blowing in TF2 Big Rock Cave. I'm not used to a surround sound type speaker, it's very impressive. Sound is fuller, as if I'm in the center of the action. These speakers are excellently shielded, with less than 0.1 miliguas. I am glad I choose this over other speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Out-of-the-box Experience

Pros: -High and Mid-Range tones are fantastic for the price, and tuned perfectly out-of-the-box imo
-The bass capability is a great match for the intended volume of a 2.0 PC system
-Good build quality, the volume knob has a nice firm feel
-Two 2.5mm inputs
-Clean minimalist design, they look great next to my UltraSharp U2414h

Cons: -$100 2.0 speakers made it really hard for me to pull the trigger (but I'm glad I did!)

Other Thoughts: As a college student, I'm constantly moving between small apartments with thin walls. With my previous 2.1 system I ALWAYS felt like the subwoofer was going to annoy the neighbors, even at the low-mid volume I generally prefer. The bulk also made it a huge burden when I had to move. In my opinion good consumer-level speakers shouldn't have Bass/Treble control, I used to drive myself nuts trying to get it right on speakers that were too cheap to ever make good sound. The BOSE speakers solved all of these problems. They're tuned beautifully out of the box, fit in a tight package, and produce satisfying bass without boiling the blood of your neighbors.

5 Stars for the Companion 2!

5 out of 5 eggsThese are very good speakers!

Pros: -They are BOSE, and good quality
- Decent Bass, and good overall sound
- Not that expensive really

Cons: - Wish it came with a white marker on volume knob (minor con)
- No other cons

Other Thoughts: You simply are not going to find desktop sperakers in this prive range as good as these. I was very imptressed out of thy ebox with no adjsutments. Great sound and decent (not super strong bnut decent) bass.

I use Nahimic Sound software and it really makes these speakers sound excellent. I love them, and would buy them again in a heartbeat.

The only compliant I have (and it's very minor), is that the volume control knob has an indentation, but its the same color as the knob (black). Hard to see in dim or low light. If it had a white line on it you could easily see how high you have the knob set. I solved the problem myself by cutting a sliver of a white sticker the exact size with an Exacto knife and putting it into slot. Fit perfect and looks like it came with it. It really is a lot better, and BOSE could have done this. But not a biggie and I fixed it in 10 minutes. I really like these speakers a lot and have been a BOSE fan for years. Worth it if you don't want to spend several hundred bucks on desktop speakers. These are the ones to get. And they look good too.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's BOSE

Pros: BOSE quality at a generic brand price. Just plug it in, turn it on, and immediately enjoy warm, full bodied bass, solid mid-range and sparkling highs.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have been an audiophile since the days of owning my first pair of pea-green Koss headphones. So, I know what sounds good. If you want to stick to a small budget and keep your desktop clean and neat; while not wasting a shelf on a subwoofer; AND have plush sound to go with your games and videos, buy these.
