PROS

  • The Companion 2 Series III speaker system provides an expansive soundscape for speakers in their price range.
  • The speakers are large enough to provide optimum sound quality and small enough to fit neatly next to your computer.
  • At $100, the Companion 2 Series III speakers are among Bose's most affordable offerings.

CONS

  • The connecting cables are on the short side, making it difficult to achieve an optimal desktop setup.
  • The sound can become muddy at low frequencies.
  • Lack of a separate subwoofer means the bass is not as clean as it could be.
Bose has a reputation for making excellent speaker systems and the Companion 2 Series III speakers are no exception. While the sound can sometimes be a little muddy at low frequencies, and there's no separate subwoofer to maximize bass, the speakers are powerful enough to fill any room with high-quality sound. Add value to the mix--the Companion 2 Series III speakers are among Bose's most affordable options--and you get a set of desktop speakers perfect for audiophiles on a budget.
