Color Name: Gray Verified Purchase
These speakers are apparently no longer available, but I write to recommend them used or their newer model replacements based on a very positive experience owning them for a couple of years.

I bought these speakers originally to supplement the pathetic sound on a Dell Inspiron laptop and have since moved them over to a desktop Mac EMac, and found them to be outstanding for both machines. However, I've also found them portable enough to move them over to our low-end TV when we wanted a big sound out of a DVD or a musical performance, over to an iPod, and off a digital camera to show off some baby videos. The independent volume controls and deep range on the speakers provide lots of flexibility in mixing in a variety of sources, and we've actually found the dual sound inputs on the back (there's an A to B mix switcher to allow simultaneous dual sound sources) to be quite useful. One can, for instance, hook up a connecting line from the stereo and use these as a second set of bookshelf speakers without unhooking it from the computer, and with a flick of the dial on the one speaker, change the mix between the two. We're sort of halfway between using traditional music sources and computer-based sources, so having cables running "both ways" has been nice.

As with most Bose speakers, the range and fidelity are excellent, and it is possible to turn the volume up too loud to the point of distortion, but (thus far) when we've done that there's no apparent damage to the speakers. In other words, for a pair of tiny desktop speakers, they provide more sound and volume than we really ever want or that the source can actually provide with any fidelity.

I particularly like the slight angle to which these speakers are canted, as they point the sound sources towards one's ears.

Color Name: Gray
Basically, it's about time that Bose Corporation decided to extend their technology into the PC market. The separation of highs and lows on these speakers are no different than that of any other Bose speaker, which is more than enough reason to find yourself as an owner of several pairs. Bose has always manufactured their products to a completely different standard. I'm pleased to report that the Media Mate speakers are no exception to what you would expect from this company. These do not have incredible bass response but I find low end to be very unnecessary, unless of course your PC will be used as your primary source of digital entertainment. Other speakers are available that deliver low end, such as the Creative Labs 5.1 series, but the properties of sound are quite different if you were to place the Media Mate next to any PC speakers equipped with subwoofers. It all depends on what is most important to you - clarity or being able to feel every last beat through your speakers. Personally, I've found many speakers (and I've purchased several over the years) to have quite a bit of distortion at moderate to high volume, and the Bose Media Mate seems to have eliminated this factor entirely. These speakers are made so YOU can hear the music clearly, not your neighbors, which is how it should be in the first place.

Color Name: Gray
Wow, this is the best-sounding pair of portable speakers I have ever heard, producing sound to rival only JVC's mighty -- and much larger -- Kaboom Box blaster. It seems that Bose has put the bass waveguide technology from the Wave Radio into this pair of baby speakers, and the results are impressive to say the least. Thanks to this surprisingly deep and rich bass plus some fancy signal-processing technology including a spatial enhancer, the sound seems to fill your environment. It's hard to believe all this fat sound is emanating from these two little speakers. I am teaming these two with an Archos Jukebox Recorder, which basically allows you to take all your favorite albums with you wherever you go, and this is just about all the stereo many folks will ever need. As a portable solution, it's without peer in my opinion. I just wish Bose offered a padded travel case for these two little gems, with a pocket for the player.

Color Name: Indigo
...they are the best Compact 2 speaker set for Computers!
... I have owned my Mediamates for a year and 2 months right now, and I must say I am very happy with them. I have tested this speakers against the ones my old computer came with, that are JBL. Also, I have tested them against the ones my new computer came with, which are Klipsch 2.1 speakers. To tell you the truth the Bose sound way better, more clear, more spacious and more bassy than the JBL speakers, considering the JBL dont go as loud and cant take much bass at all. The test against the Klipsch 2.1 wasnt bad also.. considering these speakers are compact and dont have an extra subwoofer, and that the Klipsch are HUGE and have a BIG subwoofer(also way more pricey! They used to be over $, now like $).. the Bose have the same sound quality.. with some things sounding even more spacious, they just lack the room shaking bass that the Klipsch had. The sound fro mthe Bose is also more balanced and theres no gap between bass and the rest of the music. If you are gonna get these speakers know two things:
1) They provide amazing bass for their speaker category, but it isnt something that is room shaking, and the sound can be room filling as long as you place them well.
2) They are EXCELLENT for gaming(I have tested them with HALO and Nightfire), EXCELLENT for movies (I have tested Die Another Day, Star Wars Episode 1 and 2, Finding Nemo and many more, with certain scenes you can feel almost surround sound), and they are EXCELLENT for some types of music.. for others they are just good.
To give you an idea, orchestra music and movie soundtracks sound perfect on this speakers just by connecting them to a CD Player.
