    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Value, Fidelity, Versatility
    Cons: Pricey

    Summary: Let’s face it; we spend a lot of time in front of computers, occupied with everything from work related activity to just burning time on the ‘net. Like most folks, I like to have a little background music on while I work and given the time I ... read more

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Simple setup.  Easy to move.  Great sound with little fuss.
    Cons: Price.  Acousticmass gets hot with heavy use.

    Summary: I bought these things on a whim because I am a music nut and love both my Bose Earbuds and Quiet Comfort 3 headphones.  I wanted something I could hook to my laptop/zune in my small room and hide them away somewhere where they couldn't be ... read more

    Pros: Dose a great job at what it was designed for
    Cons: That more people don't know about these.

    Summary: Bose Companion 3 Multimedia Speaker System.  First thing, beware; there is a Companion 2 system.  Do not get that one by some sort of mistake.  The companion 2 is an expensive toy, but the companion 3 is a great product.  Expensive, ... read more

    Cons: none

    Summary: Selecting office speakersWithout repeating much of what other reviewers have mentioned, I'll share my personal take on the Bose Companion 3 version 2. First of all, I was looking for a great performance and for aesthetics. I went to the Best ... read more

    Pros: Wide Signal Response
    Cons: Price

    Summary: Having recently purchased a new Mac, I knew immediately that I would opt for the Bose Companion III 2.1, having purchased a set of the first generation Companion III’s, I had prior experience with them. In fact it was so nice that it somehow ended up ... read more

  • BEST SO FAR BUT I AM NOT AN EXPERT

    Jan 14, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: size and quality. the compact size is wonderful and doesn't take much room.
    Cons: Too costly. There aren't any jacks to add more speakers

    Summary: I had a regular surround sound system from Best Buy. I had it connected to a 5.1 sound card. It went out on me after one year. I bought 4 other supposedly upgraded sound systems and they didn't sound and better than the cheap one from Best Buy. So I ... read more

  • dont let the price fool you,

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: has a modern style
    Cons: plastic enclosures looks cheap, detailed speaker specifications arent given, not enough power

    Summary: I listened to this system from bose and it didnt sound very good for the price $250 (same price as my 500watt jvc stereo). The sub sounded like it was going to explode at around half volume, and the small sattelite speakers completely overpowered the ... read more

  • I'm Glad I Bought This!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unbelievable sound from tiny speakers, heart-thumping bass, Bose quality, mute button.
    Cons: Price may be a turnoff.

    Summary: My 7 year old Monsoon IM700 speakers have been in the ICU. The jack that connects to the back of the subwoofer has been troublesome for quite some time now where the sound would disappear from the right channel and taping the cable in a certain position ... read more

    Summary: i have read that other people have experienced hissing but to this date on my p c , there has been no hissing heard. i can only assume this is due to there computers hardware or software. The sound quality is amazing - the best sound quality i have ever ... read more

  • I don't like them...

    Apr 18, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice design, solid feel, nifty control.
    Cons: Un-natural sound.

    Summary: I have never really been impressed by the Bose sound. Ever since I listened to their much ballyhooed 901-series many years ago, I didn't like their ideas on sound shaping and reflected soundstages. I didn't get a chance to actually hear this set at the ... read more

  • Not worth your hard earned dollars

    Mar 8, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Better than your generic speakers
    Cons: costs three times as much as it should

    Summary: These things are possibly the greatest scam on the face of the earth. No one else but Bose can get away with selling a 2.1 system with a 4" subwoofer and two paper Tweeters for well over $200. Are they clear? Yes. Is the sound quality good? If you ... read more

  • Excellent speakers from Bose... and reasonable price.

    Pros: Sound is excellent for a small system, small, looks good, acoustimass delivers tuneful bass.
    Cons: Pricey

    Summary: I have the older Companion 3 design, the newer ones may be slightly improved - I'm not sure. I will keep this short and simple... but I'm impressed with them for the price. Sure, there may be much bigger, similar priced speakers around that sound ... read more

    Pros: absolutely fantastic, reach out and touch it sound; love volume control
    Cons: possibly price, but really feel it is worth it

    Summary: As I am sitting here writing this review, the wonderful jazz-R&B-pop-etc. etc. etc. artist Al Jarreau is playing on my iBook on the wonderful Bose Companion 3 computer speakers. To say that I am surprised by the performance of these beauties would be a ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Compactness, Great looking, Sweet sound,
    Cons: None. It gives me value for my money!

    Summary: I sold Companion II to upgrade to Companion III. Even though I liked Companion II, I needed more low end in my music which Companion III readily provides. I never expected the low end in this computer speaker system to shake the ground or my whole ... read more

  • Great sound (for a price)

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent sound, small speakers, cool remote
    Cons: A bit expensive,

    Summary: My wife wanted a set of nice sounding speakers for her desk and there was no way to have a surround setup. I did a lot of research on 2.1 setups (2.1 refers to the number of "main speakers" two in this case and a subwoofer, the one). My toddler son is ... read more

    Pros: Small sized satellites, excellent crisp sound, amazing woofer. The volume puck is great
    Cons: A bit pricey

    Summary: Let me start by saying that I've read all possible reviews on these speakers and on many Bose products as well. It's no secret that there's a lot of Bose haters out there and they have their reasons. However, I do believe that one should be as well ... read more

  • Quality sound at a premium price

    May 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very small speakers and subwoofer, incredibly accurate sound reproduction
    Cons: Expensive, speakers are very light, mounting brackets place speakers in non-optimal directions

    Summary: I bought these speakers as a replacement for my Logitech Z-2300's. My old speakers excelled at pounding out bass, but the midrange was very lacking, which made certain songs and human speech sound muddled. I purchased these speakers not only for the ... read more

  • Rich full sound, nice styling, affordable price

    Apr 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich sound, deep bass, nifty control pod with audio in/headphones/volume control, nice style, compact design
    Cons: More connector flexibility would be nice.

    Summary: I first laid eyes on the Bose Companion 3 in a Best Buy as a demo unit.  I was really impressed with the sound quality Bose coaxed from the tiny speakers backed up by deep bass from the "Acoustimass" subwoofer.  Most importantly though -- I was ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Stands out above the rest with its elegant design and excellent sound quality.
    Cons: No wireless remote control, treble and bass adjustments. A little pricey.

    Summary: Just like other Bose speakers, the Companion 3 is a well built product. These speakers have caught my eyes since Bose introduced them first to market but I have been really reluctant to purchase one because of its pricey tag. I was hoping that the MSRP ... read more

    Pros: Incredible range. Detailed sound. Makes anything sound pure and clean.
    Cons: As always with Bose , it ain't cheap.

    Summary: I needed something to replace my Logitech Z-560's (400w RMS). Not wanting to spend 700$ Canadian on a set of Klipsch I thought I'd have no choice but to save for a very high-end system. Then I re-discovered the Companions 3 from Bose. I had seen theses ... read more
