rich sound with great bass,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bose ® Companion ® 20 Multimedia Speaker System (Electronics)
I came from a Creative T40 II background. My T40s produce a pleasant, balanced and clear sound output.
The Bose Companion 20 sound output overwhelmed me at first, as my ears were trained to the T40s, where the lack of bass allows the mids and highs to become easily prominent. An ear trained to the T40s will, at first, only recognize "BASS" in the Bose output and will most probably dislike it.
After a few months of ownership my opinion about the Bose Companion 20 has completely changed. I would now describe the Bose Companion 20 speakers as producing a rich, deep sound output, which is full and natural not artificially pumped.
In my opinion it's not that the Bose started sounding better after some "burning in", rather my ears "learned" to interface with the new sound output which is undeniably richer and more dimensional (deeper) than what I was used to listen to.
This pair of small sized 2.0 speakers offers a very rich and deep musical reproduction, which, however, at least in my case, did require a significant period of retraining myself... at least I now greatly enjoy them...
Built quality is good, the wired remote is excellent.
