Great sound, small package
I've had these for about a year so have tested them for a while. The sounds is excellent for all types of music and the system whe I've had these for about a year so have tested them for a while. The sounds is excellent for all types of music and the system when tweaked via iTunes is very flexible—classical, blues, rock and folk. It's easy to control the volume. The remote is nice and simple. I give a lot of public speeches and bought this system for its excellent sound for voices, even if played loud in an auditorium. The case (I purchased separately) is thin and small enough to carry on business trips so I can use my own sound without relying on "ify" (typically no base) systems in conference hotels. I like that the speakers are bottom weighted and sturdy. When not on the road I have books and other stuff smashed against them on my desk and they remain in place doing exactly what they are supposed to: producing great sound. …

Nice design, but subpar sound quality for the money
These speakers are very nicely designed, but despite the claims the sound is still tinny sounding. The power adapter is large and These speakers are very nicely designed, but despite the claims the sound is still tinny sounding. The power adapter is large and equally the size of a 3rd speaker. I returned mine as speakers with equal or better sound quality may be purchased for half the cost. IMHO you are better served spending your money elsewhere. …

Outstanding perfomance from a low profile set
I had reviewed several desktop speaker sets and was not only surprised but incredibly fulfilled upon listening to the clarity and I had reviewed several desktop speaker sets and was not only surprised but incredibly fulfilled upon listening to the clarity and performance from the Bose MusicMonitor. Crisp highs supported with deep mid range and subtle bass performance has me astounded when I appreciate the small compact size.
Many speakers come close, but non yet have I heard that provide the results of these. A must for the avid listener. …

Can I use the Bose computer monitor speakers with a television as well as my MacBook Pro
- Asked by Keith A
- Jun 4, 2011
Yes, but it depends on what television [device] you have or get.
1st/ the Bose speakers use a ste Yes, but it depends on what television [device] you have or get.
1st/ the Bose speakers use a stereo 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. …
