exactly what i expected, price can't be beat

I've been able to adjust and equ these speaker accompany my iMac 10.8.4 OS and the sound is delicious (not tinny, not base-heavy). I've been able to adjust and equalize with my itunes as I see fit, and the Bose quality can be heard loud and clear. Sounds great watching tv shows, listening to live music, acoustic and studio recordings. I bought Bose headphones for $100 5-6 years ago and those are still kicking after being worn out practically, so I imagine I'll get the same length of wear/tear out of these desktop speakers. Man, you can't beat this price, I am very happy! …

Very Good Sound for a 'Starter' Speaker System from Bose
I have just listened to a few selections on these new speakers. The sound is vivid from these 'beginner' speakers from Bose. I l I have just listened to a few selections on these new speakers. The sound is vivid from these 'beginner' speakers from Bose. I listen to mainly classical music from iTunes as well as selections from YouTube. These speakers are a vast improvement from an earlier set of speakers that I owned and will be a major step up from the raspy built-in speakers on computers. An excellent value for listeners who are on a budget but want sound of good quality. …

I wasn't really expecting much out of this 99 bucks pair of speakers, and their actual performance sounded worthy of the money. I I wasn't really expecting much out of this 99 bucks pair of speakers, and their actual performance sounded worthy of the money. I mean, these are not the best speakers you can find for your mac or PC, but for the price, they do a pretty decent job. I would expect them to reproduce lower in the low end, and crisper in the high end, but if that means $100 or more to spend, I'd rather stay with this pair. …

I do like that they are heavy and are not easily knocked over when you bump them, as happens with other small computer speakers. The knob has a very firm and sturdy feel that makes you think of good quality. Too bad the sound is not better. …
