When I plugged them into the wall and into my computer, I didn't even realize that they were turned on. They were completely silent at 50% volume. I was completely surprised when I started up a game and BOOM, they came to life with a roar. The sound quality is crystal clear. These are easily the best speakers in my house now, much to the chagrin of my wife, who does not always share my taste in music. I am also super impressed that they are completely silent when they are turned on -- even at max volume there is no telltale speaker hiss to be heard.
I am very satisfied with these, and I would definitely spend the $100 on these again.
What I liked about the Bose:
1. Does not distort even at max volume for any type of music
2. No feedback noise when volume dial is turned to the max and you are not listening to music
3. No "Sharp" or "High" sounding when listening to songs that can bother some people
4. Very balanced sound with slight bass emphasis
5. The small indent on the volume knob is easily felt in the dark to know where you turned your dial to. I like this because I like keeping this symmetric.
6. The volume knob also turns very solidly, and has a satisfying feel to it.
What I disliked about the Bose:
1. Sounds a little more muffled or "flat" when compared to the NX-50s. The Bose sounds very dull and has no liveliness to it (Keep in mind this is my opinion AFTER listening to the NX-50s. Before, I thought the Bose were great).
2. I was not expecting the speakers to be able to hit deep lows when listening to bass heavy songs (If you want to get that earthshaking bass, get a 2.1 speaker system or install a 8" or bigger sub woofer in your car). However, the bass is really thumpy and sounds unnatural to the song in most hiphop songs. For things likes Jazz and Blues, it was great.
Now for the Yamaha NX-50s!
What I like about the NX-50s:
1. Amazing, "colorful" and lively sounding. Expecially when playing things like jazz, classical, or any songs that don't have ridiculously low bass notes.
2. Much louder and voices are MUCH crisper.
3. Things like snaps, bells, and chimes all sound as if they are really in the room with you.
4. Small white LED indicator light to let you know its on.
What I disliked about the NX-50s:
1. Feedback noise at max volume is really annoying. So keep your volume at around 70% or lower and adjust your master volume on your computer to your looking.
2. Distorts at higher volumes for most songs I listened to.
3. Volume dial feels like it is much poorer quality compared to the Bose dial.
4. Bass rattles when it the notes are super low, and can make the voices in the songs feel like they are vibrating. Play some hip hop / rap and you will know what I mean.
While both speakers are great, they both have their pros and cons. If you really don't want to spend well over $100 for desktop speakers, go for the Bose. Just know you are sacrificing some sound quality in my opinion. The Bose are noticeably more flat sounding than the Yamaha's. However, if you don't listen to them side by side, I'm sure it won't matter to you. The Yamaha Speakers sound amazing, but for more money. If you really enjoy listening to all the detail in a song, I would recommend going for the NX-50s. They are much louder, crisper, and more "surround sound" like. Just remember the pros and cons I found for both. Good luck choosing!
Okay, so I realize that these are "entry level" Bose speakers, and I can almost certainly spend five times as much (or more) on Bose speakers. But I didn't want to. I need to edit video (in Adobe premiere Pro CC) for a college class, and my iMac speakers just aren't doing the job (they suck). I went on to Amazon to buy a pair of $5 speakers. Then I realized that I want an "A" in this class (as I will be graded on sound, among other things). Oh yeah, and I remembered that I am not 15 any more. I can afford to invest a hundred bucks in some "decent" computer speakers.
I read a LOT of reviews, but the ones that really stuck with me were all of the trolls declaring this sound as "flat," and how the Yamaha speakers were "sooooo much better." That wasted another hour of my life tracking down these "magnificent speakers" only to find that the trolls wrote how sucky they were compared to these. I finally gave up and just bought the Bose speakers (this pair), as Bose is a super-premium brand. I had to trust the positive reviews.
Let me save you a LOT of time and hassle. If you don't like these, you can send them back. You see how attentive Bose is to packaging these do they cannot possibly get damaged in shipment. I buy a TON of stuff on Amazon (every week in fact), and it is rare to see any product this securely a(and cleverly) packaged. But yeah, the bass is great and the treble is clear and crisp. This is not a $10,000 surround sound movie theater system, but for a pair of "relatively inexpensive" speakers, this set kicks ass. They really put out nice sound.
NOTE: I have not cranked these "up to eleven," to see if there is distortion (so I can complain). I have them at 75% and adjust my iMac volume. It is more than loud enough to hear outside of the house (a few rooms away) and get my neighbors to complain. Perfect for office use and even some gaming and basic entertainment (as it is stereo, but bot quad). SUPER--EASY to set up. I read the instructions after I had them working. Not bluetooth., nut these are good. Short cords. Don't expect to be able to mount these 20 feet away from your computer. These sit on, or under, your desk. Use 'em that way and you will like them a lot. Anyway, hope this helps.

I purchased these because I wanted some compact desktop speakers and I didn't want the "gamer" aesthetic of a lot of companies' offerings. I also have a friend who DJs and he uses a set of these as monitors on his secondary setup at home, so I figured they couldn't be too terrible.
Having only demo'd the higher end Bose stuff at big box stores I was expecting a very crisp sound bordering on sharp, and was ready to return these if they matched that sound profile.
What I got instead are a fantastic set of speakers for the size and the price that sound just as good bumping Run The Jewels as they do watching some Grand Tour on Prime Video. The room filling sound is a bit bass heavy at times, but otherwise these speakers do a fantastic job of reproducing the audio you should be hearing, especially for a 2.0 rather than 2.1 system.
Wow, how wrong I was. The best way to describe these speakers is as if you had a row of four or five speakers on your left and right. It is unbelievable how much depth and clarity these speakers provide. I feel as if I can hear ever instrument in a song, including the difference between two of the same instruments playing in harmony. There is a bit of a double edged sword with these speakers worth noting. They make the best songs sound better but they also make the worst songs sound worse (you will notice every flaw). Ultimately, I am now a huge fan of these speakers and Bose and I am still a bit shell shocked that they made this much of a difference.
From now on, it is Bose or nothing (a bit of exaggeration, if I had nothing I probably would use headphones).
