By R. Pollack on November 22, 2011
The Companion 20s are one of the best computer speaker systems I've ever tested, and represent a true bargain at this price. Of course, without a subwoofer they don't provide the extra deep bass to satisfy hip hop lovers, but for all other material, they're completely enjoyable.

As you'll read elsewhere, they fill a good sized room with sound. I'm more impressed with how good they sound at low volume.
There's no need for a loudness button. They sound so detailed and unusually punchy at low and medium levels that I don't feel the urge to crank them. When I do turn the volume wheel up, they remain clean and very, very loud.
There is a point where the laws of physics kick in and the Companions begin to exhibit speaker compression, cabinet noise, rear port chuffing, loss of treble detail. I just can't imagine the need to push the volume that hard, they get plenty loud before
these artifacts appear.

Any extreme design like this is going to exhibit limitations and give up an advantage or two to more conventional speaker boxes. Next to a good pair of Usher, Polk or Paradigm bookshelves, those inherent flaws begin to show through. They also don't compare favorably with studio monitors like Tannoy 501As or Yamaha HS50Ms. Any of these larger, heavier, and much more expensive speakers will exhibit warmer and richer midrange, more transparency, and more nuance with complex instruments like grand piano.

Yet none of these alternative speakers
-Weigh a pound and a half each and sit perfectly next to a desktop or laptop.
-Sound as pleasant at low volume as high.
-Develop a believable stereo image sitting a foot or so apart on your desktop, and a foot or so from your face.

I live in Japan and had the opportunity of testing out nearly 80 desktop speaker systems in the noisy - therefore not ideal -environment in my local consumer electronics megastore. Among those speakers I listened to sets from Logitech (Logicool here in JP), Klipsch, Sony, Pioneer, Creative, Hitachi, JBL, JVC (Victor here) and Bose. At first I shyed away from Bose because of the militant anti-Bose hyperbole on Internet forums, and I tested out nearly all of the other speakers using my iPhone as the source. Using my own source meant that I could ensure no EQ was in effect and I could also listen to a song that I am familiar with I order to assess how much detail I was hearing from each set.

After testing nearly everything I walked out of the store with Logitech's largest 2.1 setup because it simply sounder better than anything else to my hearing and was incredibly cheap. So cheap In fact that I was a little hesitant to take the risk because I knew that the price couldn't be so low for such a large and heavy setup without a compromise being made somewhere.
I got home and set up the speakers and was blown away by how much better they sounded in a smaller and quieter environment; the bass was powerful yet controlled, the mids and highs were clear yet not abrasive, and it was a fantastic system to listen to whether gaming, listening to music, or watching movies...BUT.....

...3 weeks later I turned on the speaker system and there was a loud *pop*. I tried playing a sound file and nothing was coming from the speakers. I turned up the volume to dangerous levels and could vaguely hear something coming from the left speaker. After cycling the power 4 or 5 times the system went back to normal and I could start using it again.

I have been searching for computer speakers that I would be satisfied with for some time. I was exposed, through a former job, to high end audio equipment and since then have been very particular with what I purchase. Most often speakers don't sound quite the same at home as they do in the store, so I brought home the Bose Companion 20's to try out. It didn't take long to realize they were not going back. I listened to classical, jazz, pop, c&w, etc and was pleasantly surprised. I've always had a subwoofer in the past, but found it wasn't necessary with these speakers. It was worth the wait for me.

I spent several hours comparing the Bose 20's to my Bose Companion 2 speakers with the idea that I would upgrade. My conclusion is, forget it. The 20's are very bright and do a great job of accentuating detail, but since nearly all of that is in the high end the result is sound which is antiseptic, with no real warmth. Furthermore, perhaps because of these speakers' acuity, a disturbing background rumble is revealed in older stereo recordings that I tested, including The Chopin Ballades & Scherzos [Hybrid SACD], Debussy & Ravel: String Quartets ~ Quartetto Italiano, and Rubinstein Collection, Vol. 43: Works by Ravel, Poulenc, Chabrier, Debussy. Since these recordings sound fine on my stand-alone system (NAD amp & cd deck, and B&W speakers) and on the Bose 2's hooked up to my computer, it appears that the "noise" is being exaggerated by the 20's. Given that my music library is filled with classic recordings from yesteryear, I have no interest in hearing their supposed technical flaws being exposed.

More modern recordings, including those from the digital era, sound amazingly clean; but as stated above the lack of bass is deadly, yielding a sound picture that's all but bloodless. A good test in this respect was one of harpist Judy Loman's recordings: Harp Showpieces. The Bose 20's made the harp sound incredibly clear, but destroyed the atmosphere.
