Comments about Bose® Companion® 20 multimedia speaker system:
I was expecting the customary crisp and clear sound characteristic of Bose speakers, but I was let down. These speakers do not match their greatness published. I had to download an equalizer to compensate for lack of high end frequencies and add some low end lacking in these speakers. Their sound focuses on the mid-range but does not pronounce the crisp frequencies or even the tight low end expected from speakers of this nature. I speak as a sound engineer and a lover of audio generally.

Bought to enhance my computers sound. Very impressed
Very good sound from two speakers!
My son bought my wife and myself these computer speakers as an early Christmas gift. Overall the sound is very good. My only concern, I would like more low range bass.
Great speakers for a computer
Hint: check out the features in control panel~sounds~and if you have a dell computer also check out the features in dell audio.

Almost as good as Companion 5
I am a long-time Bose customer. I bought the Companion 20 for my exercise room to use with an MP3 player. I didn't want the separate sub due to space restrictions so that's mainly why I decided on these. The sound is solid with fairly deep bass and crisp, clear sound for a 2 speaker system. They would work well as computer or gaming speakers for most users. If you have the space for the separate subwoofer or are a hardcore audiophile though I recommend to spend a little more for the Companion 5. The Companion 20 is very good and better than most 2 speaker systems, but it doesn't compare to the spacious sound and really deep bass that the separated components of the Companion 5 provides. I like these, but I love my Companion 5!

Snap, Crackle and Pop
I have used Bose speakers in my home exclusively for the last ten years and own several of their products, and these are by far the most disappointing. After a couple months use, I've noticed the sound quality is really distorted out of the left speaker, even at very low volumes. I have tried every troubleshooting tip and adjusted my input volume multiple times with the same result -- the same static-y, distorted sound. I've always admired Bose for its quality, but these speakers really miss the mark.
Overall ok but treble are very low
i bought this today. Over the companion 20 are ok. The base is very good in this small speaker. but treble are very low compare to the base. As a result it become little miss match and only the base become very loud. it should make some clear treble also.

Really great speakers for music and gaming!
By digital popcorn
I got these for Christmas 2 years ago. I've mainly been using them on my desktop gaming PC, and oh man, playing shooters gets so much more intense with these speakers! Really clear and solid sound, and the bass is rocking. The control pod also makes it incredibly easy to adjust the volume and to mute audio. I've also been using the speakers while creating digital music, and it's great! Only thing that I miss with these speakers is an on/off button for the power cord, but I'll still give it 5 stars for amazing sound quality and great control pod.
WOW !! MIND BLOWING STUNNING SOUND!
I brought these speaker few months ago. So the sound quality was brilliant and herd all details of the music track. And it's much better than Harmon Kardon Nova system. So I'm highly recommending these speaker system.
Top notch computer speakers!
I have had these Companion 20 computer speakers for about two years, and the sound is incredibly natural, neutral, and spacious. I never get tired of the sound, and I'm never getting rid of them... unless Bose comes up with series 2 that somehow sound better! Very satisfied, and I highly recommend.
