For the most part, however, the speakers do a great job of equalizing the sound and offering a complete experience--ecspecially for their small size. The Bose Companion 2 Series II are definitely more like a surround sound system than traditional computer speakers.

For $99, I can safely say these are among the best computer speakers you can buy. They're small and compact so they don't take up much desk space, they are easy to use and setup, and sound absolutely stunning. When playing acoustic and electronic tracks, the sound is simply amazing. The...

They are OK but I bought these second hand for 20 quid so a good deal, but if I bought these at 100 quid it is fair to say that they would be going back for being far too expensive.

If you like how Bose equipment sound, you won't be disappoint. But if you're an Audiophile who wants the true sound reproduction, this one will be too overwhelming on the low-mid, lack deep bass, lack tinkling high.

Been using this for half a year now, audio quality is spectacular after I change from my old Creative or my laptop speakers, you can notice the difference instantly. Price is a bit high but it's worth it, design looks normal but speaks modern and class. Material is excellent and you can't go...

The speakers look and feel well built and attractive, but I am a bit disappointed with the audio quality for the price. The audio quality isn't bad, but it isn't great either. I'd expect better for the price. You can probably find a few other speaker sets for cheaper that will deliver better...

These are very good speakers for the price, Sound great and not too bassy. Although they are not for someone who likes booms and bangs of a star wars movie via THX . Bass is limited and also if the mp3 you are listening is low quality it will sound low quality. These speakers are so good the low...

My wife bought a pair of these a number of years back and they have been perhaps the most impressive speakers (for the price) that I have used for a desktop computer setup. The bass is good enough for most activities such as games and basic music playback. For $90-100 these things are killer.

Not sure what it is about Bose, but like Marmite (UK vegetarian spread), people either love them (me) or hate them (others). I have owned their headphones (expensive noise cancelling) that were superb in every way (except styling). These speakers look great and sound superb. The only negatives...

Pros: Great style Everything built into the right speaker (volume, jack, AC adapter) Compact Bass is relatively solid for 2.0 setup Solidly constructed Cons: Pricey Mediocre sound separation Not extremely loud Summary: I'm not an audiophile but I do expect more when spending $100...
