Substantial upgrade for iMac speakers
Bought these as a gift for a family member to replace her iMac's built in speakers. After reading about them online through sites Bought these as a gift for a family member to replace her iMac's built in speakers. After reading about them online through sites like Trusted Reviews, decided that these would give a great bang for the buck at £200. I personally own the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1, and find them to be absolutely amazing, so was looking for something that can get most of the way to the MM-1 standard without spending so much money.
At half the price of the MM-1, these Bose speakers are a real gem. They pack punchy bass (unfortunately even at low volumes. These speakers don't really do 'quiet'). At high volumes they can also sound a little shrill, due to the lack of independent signal processing like the MM-1s. However at mid- to mid-high volumes, these perform great for such a small pair of speakers.
The styling of the speakers matches the aluminium Apple computers perfectly, with a solid metal speaker grille at the front which looks like it would stand up to the test of time. They easily fill a room (or even a house depending on how thin your walls are) with sound, and despite my niggles at the low and high ends of the volume spectrum, can heartily recommend these speakers to someone who wants an "affordable" upgrade to great sound (in comparison to some other offerings, in any case!) …

I recently tested these up against the Companion® 3 2.1 system and I would say these match it or its better it! And for less money I recently tested these up against the Companion® 3 2.1 system and I would say these match it or its better it! And for less money too. I appreciate the space-saving on these speakers too. More foot-room!
As for the sound, they are very loud (well they are in my small-ish room), direct, very clear and with no distortion at all. Recommended! …

These speakers have changed the way I listen to, and think, about music. I bought these about 12 months ago and I was blown away These speakers have changed the way I listen to, and think, about music. I bought these about 12 months ago and I was blown away by the quality of the sound - I felt like I was listening to music for the first time in my life (I'm over 40 :-)) Another reviewer talked about rediscovering their entire music collection - I completely understand this and have been doing the same over the past year. It is probably clear that I am not an audiophile and I'm not trying to compare these speakers with other high-end equipment (I wouldn't be able to). All I can say is that the sound quality from these speakers is an order of magnitude greater than anything I have ever tried before - I have experienced many good PC speaker systems over the years. Moreover, the build quality and finesse of the speakers and the desktop controller is beyond anything I have experienced.
Before I close, I'd like to share something else that I've learnt. The manual says to place the speakers either side of your monitor - I took this to mean immediately either side - so about 60cm apart. A few weeks ago I upgraded my Apple Thunderbolt display to an LG 34inch ultra-wide display (sorry Apple!). As a consequence, I was forced to place the speakers further apart (they're now about 90cm apart). There was a notable improvement in the sound quality and the depth of the sound - I think this is referred to as enhancing the 'soundstage', but audiophiles please don't get angry at me if that's the wrong terminology. Anyway, try increasing the separation of the speakers and see if it works for you.
A year on, I still get a thrill every time I listen to music on these speakers. …
