Perfect for Zoom, WebEx and all virtual interactio
When my office moved to my home due to the pandemic, I needed to upgrade my home office. This system is perfect, with most valued feature being the volume control at my fingertips, within easy reach. Thought I would need a woofer. I don’t. Sound is fabulous.

Who needs a stereo?
I haven’t had a stereo for years. These are the only sound system i need. Connected to my iMac, i use them for music, streaming tv and video con calls. As always, great Bose sound quality and the volume “puck” sits quietly on the edge of my desk.

What an improvement!
So, like many, my home office has become my main office, and I wanted to improve the sound for Zoom and other conference calls. The best feature of this product is the pod that controls volume -- it's right there in front of you, and you don't have to reach for anything. And the sound is amazing. I thought I wood need a bass woofer (not available on this system), but sound is just amazingly Bose.

Snap, Crackle and Pop Deja Vu
I've been a Bose fan for more than 25 years, but clearly, there seems to be an issue with these speakers as too many people have had the exact same experience. I bought the Bose Companion speakers about five years ago and they worked really well. In general, I was very happy with my purchase. However, about 6-9 months ago, the right speaker started to sound distorted, especially for any music or audio with heavier bass sounds. At first I figured I got my use out of them and I would just buy another set, but at what I paid for these, they should have lasted much, much longer! I also noticed that on the Bose website, several other reviewers mentioned having the same issue and I also noticed that the store I bought mine at also has some bad reviews for this product with the EXACT same issue! This leads me to believe that this is a design flaw and that depending on the amount of use, the product will fail and much earlier than it should given the cost.

Speaker sound Excellent !!!
I have these speakers for sometime now and during guarantee period and for the second time gave trouble, was distorting only one, wish they stopped selling and assembling their products in China. Cheap labour + Cheap Quality = Poor performance ??

Bad speakers
Got one of the speakers replaced during its warranty period as it was jarring as if it was torn. Service was done at Andheri Mumbai service center. After replacement it worked for a month and then the same problem repeated. Fed up with such service. Will never buy a bose again after the quality issues faced. Absolutely not worth the price paid for.

The unit should work
I have used this speaker system on other computers and it worked fine. I recently purchased a Windows 10 laptop and now all I get when hooked up is a hum. The speakers are in excellent condition so I cannot understand why I cannot get audio and at least some assistance from Bose.

Wonderful speakers, bad control design
to be honest, I love these speakers. They replaced an older set of bose PC speakers that were smaller, and initially I was worried about the larger didn't feel as solid as my old ones. But the sound quality is amazing, and the deep tones from these is much broader then in my older set.

The only reason this gets 3 stars is my odd setup. my speakers are up on a shelf above my PC desk, and the power/volume control cord is only about 4 inches long or so. that's it. So if I want to adjust the volume via the real solid and well designed volume control, I have to stand up and reach behind my PC.

Bad choice, and it's such a simple thing it drives me crazy. Give us a longer cord, or even offer an extension cord! of course, the one thing that they design bad, they also put their proprietary connector on it So you can't just go to the store and buy an extension for it...and they they don't offer one in their store. I'd buy it, seriously. but no...

It may seem extreme to drop 2 stars for that, but it's such a stupid limitation to have on such an amazing set of speakers. Cmon Bose, you can get another 20$ out of me if you make an extension cord. But instead you get a bad review. sad.

the worst set of bose speakers i have ever had
I wish i could leave negative rating, specially after speaking a so call manager from overseas. no bass what so ever, it sound more like a over sized tweeter. the sound is terrible. i have over 20 boce items. this item is the worst and after today, i do not think i will be buying anything from bose anymore.
