    For once I can say that Bose gives one his money's worth, with this product. It was the many other great reviews that persuaded me to try these for my wife; without those many reviews, I would have avoided them altogether.They are full and flat (referring to the spectrum, and that is a good thing); those that find too much bass, I suspect, need huge, thumping volume, and not desktop speakers. There is more than enough of the lower end in these little wonders. They are reasonably well built, and they DO adequately fill a good-sized room with music, remarkably evenly across the audible spectrum. Tired of cheap-sounding desktop speakers? These are the answer, and I'll give anyone my positive recommendation, with experience to back it.

    To much whiz and not enough bang!

    I used these as computer speakers.
    Compact.
    Not the sound quality I would expect from a Bose Speaker System

    Good Sound, Nice Form-Factor

        Comments about Bose Companion 2 Series III Multimedia Speaker System:

        I wanted some speakers with decent sound quality that wouldn't be visually overwhelming sitting on my desk next to a new Mac Pro, and these nicely met both requirements—and at an attractive price, as well.

            Great little set of computer or small room speakers, and I listened to many before purchasing these. Bass is adequate for their size, but don't expect really deep bass. Well made and reliable, and what you would expect from Bose.

              I needed a computer speaker that doesn't cost more than $100 but reliable and has a good bass sound. This is a really nice budget computer speaker to monitor video sound.

                      First heard these speakers several years ago hooked up to a friend's MacMini, and was surprised at how good they sounded. When I bought my MacMini a few weeks ago I knew I wanted these speakers for myself. I love them. They make listening to iTunes and Youtube audio a great pleasure. And the price is right.

                                  For the low price under $ you get a really great sound, you get headphones output and Aux input. You shouldn't have anything less than the companion 2 for your computer.

                                                Got these for my kids, as I love the series II i have at work. They are NOT the same quality of the bose Series II I purchased about 2 years ago and the same price. Having said that, These are pretty good. sort of middle of the road. I did not have the heart to spend a couple of hundred on a good set of upper end Bose speakers, but these seem to be a good compromise.

                                                I used these as computer speakers.
                                                Compact.
                                                Not the sound quality I would expect from a Bose Speaker System

                                                      Absolutely no complaints. For the price, Bose really delivers. Deep bass and a crisp sound that fills the room! Love it.

                                                      Even when driven by nothing fancier than the on-board audio of a low-cost computer, these speakers live up to the Bose reputation.

                                                              I recently purchased a 22" LED TV to replace a smaller LCD in my master bathroom; yes you read that right, my bathroom. I gotta have my news fix while showering in the morning....I know TMI! Anyway, the built in speakers in the TV are terrible and drove me nuts. These Bose speakers were the answer! Really nice sound; good bass as well. They make watching the occasional movie in the jetted tub, after a great day on the slopes, just a little nicer :)
