    Not worth the money.

    See i was in two minds when i got mine, and i think i've decided to send them back. I couldn't wait to get them hooked up, as you'd think after spending £400 you would have some serious sounding speakers with amazing sound. Unfortunately if your like me and play most of your music from itunes, then you'll probably not be too impressed as the sound really isn't that great, or that loud. I tried to compare the difference to a sony dock i bought, and honestly there wasn't that much in it!

    they look amazing, and i know they are designed for close range, yet I would say they're not that impressive for people who buy and play of itunes. I would try before you buy elsewhere.

    Initial Disappointment

    • Written by from athboy

    Even after a couple of weeks use, they sounded inferior to my Pure Aventi Flow which cost half the price. In desperation I added the Wireworld Ultraviolet 5 USB cable, which totally transformed the sound - now its excellent ! 3 Stars only due to high price and you still need to spend £50 on the cable.

    They're not Bose!

    • Written by from Whitstable

    A die hard Bose fan, I instead plumped for the Bowers & Wilkins based on the reviews on this site and the fact that I preferred the look of the B & W and the fact that there was no need for a subwoofer.

    When I first got them, I looked at them both with delight, but a slight disappointment.

    When in London this week, I took the opportunity to call in to the Apple store on Regent Street and checked out the Bose (the cheaper £199 option) - wow!

    I spoke to the sales assistant at length and he said that the Bose were so much better than the B&W.

    The B&W speakers are good, I can't deny it, but if you are looking for first class sound, aim for Bose!
