Ratings & Reviews
Amazing sound from a small source.
Although they're pricey these speakers have an amazing sound in a compact and portable package that makes them worth the cost. Pe ople are always amazed by their range and power for how tiny they are.
The only reason I'm giving them four instead of five stars is because I do get an odd popping sound from the speakers on occasion when they're connected to my MacBook Air. This might be due to the small size of the Air not allowing for a solid plug connection, so I'm not completely sure where the blame should lay. Other than that I'd highly recommend these speakers for anyone looking for a compact and portable system for their laptop.

Full sound, yet small and sleek body.
at first we were expecting to have a puny sound with mock-bass touch to it, but the speakers have really proven that they're capab le, and they do not disappoint! …

amazing sound and looks good too!!
these speakers are way better than any audio product ive ever purchased. the sound that these things put out is purely amazing. th e highs are so crisp and the bass rattles your desk. all of that in a tiny package that fits perfectly on my desk. best of all they produce incredible amounts of bass without a large bass module with the many wires that come with them. there is only 3 wires! the remote is an added bonus which makes these even better than my old companion 5s. paid the same amount for a better product. these are the best investment ive ever made on any computer related product. …

Yes, but it depends on what television [device] you have or get.
1st/ the Bose speakers use a ste reo 3.5mm mini-jack so unless your TV monitor has a mini-jack you'll need some sort of adaptor. Most TV's have RCA connectors for audio and you should be able to find either online or a specialist electronic goods store that stock an adaptor that has two [male] RCA connectors [usually one red, one black] cabled to a stereo 3.5 mini jack socket [female].
2nd/ You'll find most "Televisions" ie combined screen [monitor] & tuners [the bit that receives and decodes the broadcasted TV signal] have speakers built in to them so there's not going to be a huge benefit to running your Bose monitors with this kind of TV except a possible increase in sound quality if the TV speakers are really rubbish.
3rd/ Some older TV's don't have any audio output connectors to connect your external speakers to.
Tip: It's best to NOT use the headphone socket to run your Bose units because the power output is much greater than the level that the Bose are designed for and you'll usually you'll get a more distorted sound even if you turn down the headphone socket's level. …
