Top customer reviews
1. The quality. You can hear the strings of a guitar or distinct tone in ones voice
2. No ugly subwoofer. Lets face it who in the world needs a subwoofer with a computer? These have a great bass that will match equally the volume of the rest of the music.
3. The design, slim and attractive. Not big, bulky, or trying to look cool like some of the other products.
I guess you can list price, but honestly I got 7 years out of my first pair and that included a move (and lets face it when you move you just toss computer speakers really around). So yes you get what you pay for. and in this case. You definitely get what you are paying for.
To kick off the review I want to say that I am by no means an audiophile, I am just a casual music lover/listener. Nor do I listen to music that requires high quality equipment to really enjoy (i.e. orchestra or opera). I listen mostly to rock, classic rock, and occasionally I like to play nature sounds to help me relax and meditate/sleep.
I have these set on my bookshelf and hooked up to apple's airport so I can stream music from my iphone and computer. It's in a fairly small space cuz I live in an NYC apartment. For my purposes, it's absolutely perfect. The sound is rich and bounces off the walls, it sounds like I am surrounded in my music even though the speakers are located in a corner of the room. The bass is not too much, which is a plus for me because sometimes too much bass gives me a headache. The volume goes up pretty loud, for the most part I turn it less than halfway and it's more than enough for me. However, I am in a very small space, so this may not be the same for other people.
When I have friends over, they comment on how great the sounds are, and I tell them it's computer speakers, and they're all surprised.To give you an idea of how great and 'realistic' the sound is...one night I was playing a recording of a thunderstorm to help me fall asleep, and my gf woke up and said to me 'wow it's really raining out'!
A lot of people are saying you can get a lot better for your money, and theres also the Bose haters who thinks they're overpriced and the products are shoddy. I personally think these are great and I am really getting my money's worth. These are actually intended to be computer speakers, which in my opinion is an overkill. I think they work awesome as a mini home stereo system.
The thing I liked about this product is that its awesome quality with such minimal size and compactness. It is tightly built and strong. If you don't have too much desk space then this is the speaker to buy. With its elegant design and compactness, it fits perfectly. If you don't mind spending few more bucks for the products looks along with its awesome sound quality then just go for it. Being practical, obviously it would not sound good as other sound system with a sub-woofer where I mean a high end sub-woofer subsystem and not just those that call themselves 2.1. But keep in mind that Bose with its only two small speakers sitting on either side of your monitor has that true bass that sounds good enough sitting about 5 ft from the computer. And it is not to be used to used as a home theater system because that's not its function. Don't depress yourself trying to expect too much from something it is not and that is why there is a whole bunch of varieties of speakers that perform different functions and obviously costing more for a quality home theater system. Due to its small size, it is very portable and would fit in any regular pack which was a big selling point for me. And also keep in mind that greater number of speakers lying around your desktop doesn't mean that you're getting better sound and more speakers for a lower price. Nope, just use your own logic? Highly recommend going to stores if possible before buying.
