From the Manufacturer

Bose - Better Sound Through Research

Dedication to research and excellence. It's been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. But the commitment actually began years earlier.

In the late 1950s, Dr. Bose, then a graduate student, purchased a stereo system based on its impressive technical specifications. The avid music enthusiast was disappointed to discover the speakers didn't reproduce the sound of a live performance--and he became determined to recreate that lifelike audio experience for listeners.

After extensive research, Dr. Bose and colleagues introduced the groundbreaking 901 Direct/Reflecting speakers in 1968. Their lifelike sound won immediate and widespread acclaim.

Since those early days of 901 speakers, Bose engineers have kept their focus on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the Computer MusicMonitor, with advances that ensure premium performance and convenience.



The Computer MusicMonitor offers exceptional performance,
simplicity and more desktop space.

Exceptional Audio Quality in an Elegant, Space-Saving Design

Premium Two-Speaker Bose System for Computers

This premium two-piece computer speaker system is also the smallest from Bose, yet it delivers sound well beyond its size. Computer MusicMonitor is recommended if your laptop or PC is a prime source of entertainment, you're particular about audio quality and you want an elegant yet unobtrusive system.

Until now, high quality desktop sound with convincing low notes has come only from large speakers or a three-piece system with a bass module. The MusicMonitor computer sound system is an alternative for serious listeners who prefer a two-piece solution offering exceptional performance, simplicity--and more desktop space.

This unexpected sound quality results from the latest in Bose amplifier technology, combined with highly efficient neodymium speakers and Bose digital signal processing. The system's proprietary amplifiers are smaller, lighter and more efficient than traditional linear amplifiers to help keep speakers small--yet powerful. Active electronic equalization balances low, mid and high frequencies for more natural tone and clarity. Acoustic design features dual internal opposing passive radiators for unusually deep, powerful low tones from a very small multimedia speaker system.

Setup is easy--you'll need only one cable connection to your computer or auxiliary sources. Volume and power controls are on the right speaker. Or, use the handy remote control that comes with the system. And the speakers are magnetically shielded, so you can place them near your monitor without worrying about monitor interference or damage to magnetic media. To use the Computer MusicMonitor with other audio sources, just unplug the connection to your computer and connect the other audio source to the audio input.

Enjoy the fullness and detail you may have been missing from your favorite downloads, Internet radio and much more, simply and elegantly. The system's understated, space-saving design and elegant brushed aluminum enclosure complement any workspace and fits nicely almost anywhere in your home.

Control volume and power with the handy remote

High Output

Computer MusicMonitor speakers feature thin but powerful neodymium transducers with 10 times the magnetic energy density of conventional speaker magnets.

Easy Connectivity

One-cable connection to computer or auxiliary sources.

Proprietary Acoustic Design

Dual internal opposing passive radiators provide unusually deep, powerful low tones from a very small multimedia speaker system.

Proprietary Amplifiers

The amplifiers in Computer MusicMonitor are smaller, lighter and more efficient than traditional linear amplifiers. This helps keep the speakers small yet powerful.

Active Electronic Equalization

The active EQ balances low, mid and high frequencies for more natural tone and clarity.

Computer MusicMonitor speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent monitor interference or damage to magnetic media.

Color Name: Silver
Notes: I don't work for Bose, and I "paid for" these speakers with AMEX credit card points.

To compare these speakers to 3-piece computer speakers makes no more sense than comparing a computer subwoofer to a high-end audio subwoofer. The only similarity is that they produce sound, with varying levels of fidelity.

I'm comparing the Bose MusicMonitor to the few very small desktop speakers that provide a decent sound. Not necessarily an accurate sound; I've heard systems in the $250,000 range that provide excellent sound -- but it is still not accurate sound. If you're expecting the full sonic equivalent of a 3-piece system, you won't find it in the MusicMonitor. You also won't find the thumpy, tubby overpowering "bass" those cheap subwoofers produce. And in home theaters, all but the very best subwoofers are often paired with infrasonic transducers which, when screwed to the bottom of the floor, can take the output frequency down to 5 Hz or so (and tickle your feet and your butt in the process).

Granted, there's not much low bass so beloved of video explosions and certain types of music. But neither is there the strident blaring that often comes from small speakers whose speakers are driven well past the point of linearity. What the MusicMonitors provide is a well-balanced sonic field I would rate similar to some professional near-field monitors. Being small speakers, they do best in near-field positions - not more than a foot or two from your ears. Still, there's enough clear volume that you can walk around a room and the music won't seem too weak. My impression is that the bass tends to rise slower (maxes out) than the rest of the audio range as volume increases. But at lower volumes there's plenty there to give a good feel of solidity to lower notes.

Color Name: Silver
Addendum to my initial review:

Apparently Bose had a similar unit in Japan for at least 3 years already. This USA version is the low end Japanese 'M2' version. I confirmed this with Bose of Japan.

Japan also has a higher end 'M3' version in identical size. That one comes in silver or black - AND is capable of running on 4AA batteries that goes inside the base and runs at 2watts using batteries. Plugged in, they are 20 watts/channel. The buttons are different from the USA version.

The M3 in Japan cost 25% more than the M2. M2 is price in line with the US. M3 is reviewed as even better sounding than the M2, plus the capacity to take batteries is a plus. I wonder if the USA will introduce an 'upgraded' Music monitor next year by bringing the M3 to the USA.

Has anyone compared the USA model to the Japanese M2 and M3 models? Funny because Bose press in the USA seem to claim that these are recent developments when they have been in Japan for a few years. Do a search on the web and find the info.

Would love to hear from others.

**************************
2nd addendum to my initial review

Now that I've had one to try for a couple of weeks, here's the update.
1. This is basically, even for Bose, a $200 system.

2. If you are looking for a $400 Bose sound, forget it. Even the guys at the Bose store tells me that they don't think it is worth $400 at all.

3. However, if you travel a lot like I do, then this is the best tiny self amplified speaker system on the planet. This doesn't mean it's $400 or even $200 great in terms of tone. In essence, I think of this as a $200 premium tacked on just because it sets the standard for something so small.

Color Name: Silver
OK, I waited a long time and really thought about it and shopped, shopped, shopped- meaning I surfed a LOT of websites, reviews, etc. Now, I go back to the legendary 901's in the late 60's/early 70's, and I have enjoyed many Bose products since then, owning a Wave radio, several headphones and other goodies. But, I couldn't decide on these.

I first learned they existed when I was walking through an airport with time to kill- I think it was Midway in Chicago. I heard wonderful music with a stunning clarity and I looked all around for where the music was coming from. I found the Bose booth and the salesperson asked me to pick what was playing-- imagine, airport concourse, busy and NOISY. Finally, he pointed out these teeny metal speakes and I frankly couldn't believe it.

I decided I would take the $400 plunge (nearly $500 with tax and very nicely done carrying case with strap- a necessity if you want to move these things around) yesterday and went to a Bose store to hear them one more time. They sounded awfully good, so I bought them, and went home for the big moment. Music equipment sounds very different in your own home than it ever sounds at any store or public place.

I have a MacBook Pro with about 60 gigs of ITunes, a huge collection of CD's and an XM Radio, several IPOds and a CD player and I was eager to hear all of them through these little tiny speakers. I fired it up and had a moment of great disappointment when it seemed to sound no better than my Mac's nice built-in speakers. Then, I realized I had not connected the speakers to the Mac! Duhhh . . .

Then I connected them and tried all different genres including the demo CD.
