    Bose 301 reviews

    301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best sound for the price I bought two sets of the 301's back in 2000. I fell in love with the sound quality of a set of 501's while in Europe and have had Bose products around me since. Even my Mazda has a Bose system in it. Although I'd love to have a pair of 901's life is good with my 301's. It is unbelievable to have surround sound with only two speakers. The total overall sound that the 301's deliver is just like what everyone talks about "like being there" you hear everything and such a beautiful balance of bass, midrange and the highs. every product that I have purchased from Bose, has never let me down in the sound or design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great highs and mids, wonderful balance Happy owner of 301's for over four years now. Replaced a set of 201's series II with these.. They really do have a great balance of sound, I paired mine with a 100w subwoofer for a little kick. The 301's paired with a good sub, sound better than my floorstanding 45lb Acoustic Research 8 Speakers, and can hold a match to my fathers 901's. I still want 901's... but you will not be disappointed with these speakers at all. Great product, and in my opinion the best Bose stereo speaker.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Full Wonderful Sound I have purchased several Bose products over the years, starting with the Bose Wave alarm clock, then the docking station speaker for Apple IPod products, then home theatre and more recently the Bose Sound Link lll Blue Tooth Speaker. These products are outstanding if you love music and good sound. I use the Sound Link in the living room all the time in spite of having a Bose 301 stereo system in the room. The Sound Link fills the room with wonderful "full rich music". It's the only speaker I use for music right now. I purchased the Bose Wave, over 19 years ago and it still sounds as good as the day I purchased it. When I am interested in a speaker system, I will only consider one product "Bose". Excellent products that have thrilled me for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my view I got these as a graduation present back in '04 and paired them up with some darn good Klipsch speakers. These things changed the way I view sound. I thought an HDTV would improve my gaming experience. HECK NO! These things thump. The gaming experience was so rich that I felt like I had an advantage playing online. Further, I peeled through my MP3 collection listening to old songs over and over again because I heard sounds I didnt know were there. I also noticed cruddy MP3 quality. Such rich filling sound leaves little for wanting more. Audio-philes hate and hate. Their ears may be better than mine, and their rants may be right and I may have not compared too many speakers, but my experience with Bose is one that was so good that I would be extremely skeptical switching to some other brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Long Life I bought a pair of 301s way back when they were series II. If the newest series are at least as good you can't go wrong with them. I used them primarily in a small living room and now in a bedroom. Don't put them right up against the wall. The placement specs given in the owners manual are just recommendations. Experiment with how far you have them from the side walls and the ceiling or floor. When you get it right you won't believe the quality of the sound coming from such small speakers. The overall frequency response and sound quality is amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Six years, and I still love these speakers I bought these years ago.. I still really like these speakers. I have them paired with a Pioneer SX-850. I've had other older speakers (Ohm, Advent ect) paired with this receiver and I always find myself using the 301's anyway.. Something about the way they sound. Audio is always situational, but I find for most instances these speakers are perfect. They've held up very well, considering the amount of time they spent with me while attending college.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I bought the 301 after much review and thought. Since I listen to jazz, classical, western and vocal, I decided over this superb piece. I have connected to an amp of 70 rms . Years back it was a dream when I would see the ads in Reader's Digest of the Bose Corporation.In fact the year 2016 starts with Bose Speaker system........I love it .......I admire it.....I mean it.....
