Spacious, uncolored sound. Stylish good looks. Touch-sensitive control puck.

Won't shake the floor. Sounds thin with some source material.

The Bose Companion 3 is a great-looking, solidly built three-piece system that produces moderately high volume levels, snappy bass, and a delightfully transparent, spacious midrange. It lacks deep bass output and is a bit too bright for our taste, but nei

The Bose Companion 3 speakers look great and have a heap of potential but just don't perform the way an expensive set of speakers should.

Attractive design, great breakout box

Truncated Treble, Mediocre mid-tones, Muddy bass, Too expensive.

Bose Companion 3 Mk II review

 

This is the most expensive speaker set in the group and it certainly looks the part, right down to the elegant shuttle wheel-style volume knob.

Bose Companion 3 Series II

 

A desktop speaker solution that's worth the moolah

Good build, good deep thumping bass, crystal clear highs, 3.5mm jack for audio input, MIC & headphone jack on control pod

No wireless remote, no treble control, expensive

Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System

 

I've used Bose listening products for about 25 years. They never let me down when it comes to quality. This is the perfect set-up for me. I love to listen to music, but if the product doesn't have a quality sound, I won't listen to it. I hadn't been...

Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System

 

A bit on the pricey sound, but they have excellent bass and overall sound. The volume control and on/off piece is quite nice for a change. Can't say anything bad about these, but they could be cheaper.. but doesn't everyone wish.

Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System

 

I would like to know how to get a better price as most internet and bm stores will not negotiate on this item. I am well pleased with this purchase as related to quality of sound.

Good deep and medium sounds

The volume is not as loud as I wanted but will easily fill up a bedroom/office room for most situations
