Bose Companion 20 Review

 

2.0 speakers have always created their niche in the market with the portability and affordability they provide. Simply hook it up to your laptop, mobile phone or any other audio device and you have an enhanced audio experience. Bose has always been...

The Companion 20 are priced at Rs. 14,513. In terms of functionality, these are just a simple set of speakers you would want to attach to your laptop, or PMP for somewhat ‘portable’ audio listening. There's no fancy stuff like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth...

Bose Companion 20 Multimedia speakers review

 

PC speakers that'll fill your room with sound with not a sub in sight and Bose finally adds brilliant desing to its audio engineering finesse. Shame about the price...

Powerful, room-filling sound ; Sleek, elegant design ; No subwoofer needed

Over sensitive control pod ; Premium price ; Set up

Most will bulk at the price, but when you consider the quality of sound, the sheer power delivered minus a sub, and the ability to add further devices, it's a setup that covers a lot of bases. With so many iPod docks that cost a lot more struggling to...

Bose Companion 20

 

This 2.0 speaker setup is one of the first Bose products we've seen that actually lives up to its billing.

Powerful, bassy sound ; Convenient wired remote ; Stylish design

Quite expensive ; Possibly a bit too bassy ; No bass/treble control

While Bose products have fallen foul of us in the past, the Companion 20 has knocked our socks off. The sheer volume and drive produced by these 2.0 speakers is astonishing and bass, if anything, is fractionally more prominent than it would be in a...

Bose Companion 20

 

Solid sound, smart looks and simple set-up make the Bose easy to recommend

Easy to accommodate ; Simple set-up ; Clear vocals, good detail, and plenty of bass

Bass can at times be over-egged ; Not last word in excitement

Great speakers from BOSE, but a little EQ messing around is required.

 

I'm not a Fanboy of BOSE, but these speakers are surprisingly great. I listen to a wide array of music, all of which sound great on these versatile speakers. The Bose 20 Companion series offer a mighty punch for such a small desk footprint, they give a...

-Nice, minimalist looking speakers. -Design and durability is excellent -Lots of bass especially from a 2.0 system -Very fluid turn volume knob with a touch sensitive on and off button -Titanium mesh to protect speakers -Plug and play -Volume Knob has...

-No EQ -Bass can sometimes get somewhat overwhelming with certain genres.

Awesome computer speakers

 

I am Bose a employee who is not speaking on behalf of the company, but as a consumer of this product. I borrowed a set of these speakers from the company; took them to my man cave; connected them to my laptop; began looking at Armageddon and was blown...

Amazing!

 

I bought these because I needed to save some space on my desk but still wanted a big sound from my sound system. Big sound from small speakers, now that is a tall order when it comes to computer speakers. But big things do come in small packages. For a...

Very clear sounds, incredible bass from a 2.0 system, very clean look, control pod is great, saves space on desk!

A little pricey, no bass and treble controls
