    Absolutely fantastic - best purchase ever!

    Brought these speakers to dock our Ipod directly into them to use as our home music system! The sound quality is absolutely crystal clear and soooooo much volume and base if you want it, perfect for parties!
    Originally purchased the Companion 5 which are also excellent but we didn't realise that those can ONLY be connected through a PC to play music from the Ipod (the information and packaging for both are the same so very confused when we were told we should have gone for Companion 3 first, even this website doesn't state the difference!)
    Also, you need to buy a universal dock if you want to have it set up properly so the Ipod charges when not in use.
    Well worth every penny and you wont be disappointed!

    I am sitting here listening to these Bose Companion V2 speakers after setting them up and listening for about an hour and the verd I am sitting here listening to these Bose Companion V2 speakers after setting them up and listening for about an hour and the verdict so far is 'Blimey they're good!!' Infact they are too good perhaps, let me explain. The sound differs quite allot depending on how the tracks were down/uploaded. You can really hear the difference from 128kbps and 160kbps etc which can make some music sound a little off quality wise but all in all they are excellent desk top speakers for your PC or Mac. I was told that there was no separate volume for the sub which was worrying but was pleased to find a knob on the sub which turns the deep bass down or up so the bass is customisable. I was thinking of getting the Apple HiFi speaker but I wanted proper stereo separation so these Bose speakers are a perfect alternative plus they have a seperate input for any MP3 player and a headphones output if you wish to be Mr or Mrs Quiet. Oh and they re £29 cheaper than the Apple Hifi so save and buy some decent headphones.

    Enjoy!

    Just completely superior to any other multimedia soundsystem I have heard. Sound quality is just perfect. They just fill the room Just completely superior to any other multimedia soundsystem I have heard. Sound quality is just perfect. They just fill the room with a warm, crystal clear sound. Fuctionality and control are good too, especially like the included control dock with one touch mute and jacks for input and headphones.

    They look fantastic and sit nicely beside my new black MacBook! You have to buy them!

They are truly superb at accurate sound reproduction. I have had these speakers for a while now and I am still impressed every time I listen to them. I bought them instead of a BOSE iPod dock for added functionality.

    Visitors are amazed at the sound that comes from these speakers, often commenting that it's impossible such good sound could come from speakers so small. BOSE are well known for their 'better sound through research' marketing angle - well they have definitely researched these computer speakers.

    Overall I am very, very impressed. Fantastic sound reproduction for all genres - you won't be disappointed if you purchase!
