5-0 out of 5 stars The best computer speakers ever made!
I have tested a lot of computer speakers on my computer and ALWAYS the sound was distorted when I turned up the volume to the maximum! My computer had originally Windows 98 and JBL speakers and everything worked great until I updated to Windows ME, then to Windows 2000 and after that to XP. XP works great with everything but one thing! The original sound drivers didn't work for my sound card in XP and they were replaced by generic ones. My JBL speakers got damaged thanks to the SRS WOW Effects on Windows Media Player and the Equalizer. Even when the JBL speakers weren't damaged the bass would sound distorted and the volume at the maximum was very very bad. After that I bought these Cyber Acoustics Speakers with a 15 watt powered subwoofer and 4 speakers and the Bass was still distorted! I got tired and bought these Klipsch EXPENSIVE speakers(5.1, 5 speakers and Subwoofer) and I could still hear some kind of distortion. I returned those Klipsch and lived a bad sound life(in my computer) for a while. The BOSE store just opened in the best mall in Puerto Rico like 3 months ago and I played with all their home theater systems and speakers! I loved(and still love) those Computer Speakers and I decided that after Christmas when I had more money I would get them!(I am only 15 years old and I dont work and don't need to). Well I bought these speakers 3 days ago and it is just incredible the difference in sound! The music gets around me and it feels like if I was on a concert! It has deep bass that isn't distorted at all! I just turn the volume up at 1/4 of the maximum and it is loud enough for me and the best is that you can connect it to your TV, a CD Player and anything with sound output! I even connected it to my Xbox and it sounds louder and even better than my SONY 650 watt 5.1 speaker system!(The bass isn't as loud as the subwoofer, but it sounds great!) Connect it to your DVD Player too! It is incredible!! And I never turned the volume up to the maximum! These are the speakers you have always wanted and dreamt of for your computer! My room is filled with sound when I use them! BOSE... Better sound through research! Go to a BOSE Store and test them. You will love BOSE forever ;). Something else! They are GREAT for gaming! Try to play Unreal Tournament 2003 and you will love the bass!

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than 6-speaker sets from others
I have just returned Creative Inspire 6.1 system as it had too much noise. Bose speakers have less noise (it's there still and audible).

The BEST about these speakers is that they produce complete sound range by themselves -- bass, treble, and everything in between, are all perfect, resulting in NATURAL SOUND. All those six-speaker systems have separate speakers for bass and the rest (subwoofer and satellites) resulting in a gap between bass and treble, where a good part of music falls. Sound from these six-speaker systems is for that reason not as good as sound from two speakers from Bose. Man, I do not need a separate subwoofer!

Though I am quite satisfied with sound, there is still "some" noise. I have an ear for noise, so slightest of it is noticeable to me.

I would have been happier if Bose provided specifications for the speakers, at least for the powered ones. Their support team refuses to provide specs. Nevertheless, sound from the speakers is GOOD. That's what matters at the end.

These are a five-star speakers. (Actually amplifier inside those speakers matters more.)

Also consider Polk Audio AMR130 speakers. They are the best I have found. Have best-in-class noise performance (90dB). Power specification is 40W RMS, more than enough for a room.

5-0 out of 5 stars To Reviewer Codecontra from MA, USA I say..
..if you think I know nothing about speakers you are wrong. I do know a lot about them, and I know the sound on the mediamates could be a bit more clear, but that is for music. I am 100% sure you have never tested Bose Mediamates with movies or games. I tell you right now that no 2.1 speakers that cost less than $125, rivals the sound of the Mediamates with movies and games. They will just have more voluem and bass, but the Mediamates are more than enough in volume. Why cant any of you accept that these are the best 2.0 speakers? And dont you think that the best in a category has to be more expensive? Gosh..

2-0 out of 5 stars You can buy much better for less money.....
My main problem with Bose speakers in general is that they "color" the sound quite a bit. The whole "Proprietary spaciousness-enhancing circuitry", in my opinion takes away much of the clarity of the sound. In my opinion, most of the people who wrote reviews here really do not know much about speakers, because Bose have a horrible reputation with audiophiles.

I owned and returned these speakers. They are not horrible mind you, but you could do MUCH better for less money. If anyone is thinking about buying these, do yourself a favor and try the Cambridge SoundWorks "SoundWorks" 3 piece system first. They absolutely blow the Bose speakers away and retail for $69.

5-0 out of 5 stars For their size, category and prize...
...they are the best Compact 2 speaker set for Computers!

... I have owned my Mediamates for a year and 2 months right now, and I must say I am very happy with them. I have tested this speakers against the ones my old computer came with, that are JBL. Also, I have tested them against the ones my new computer came with, which are Klipsch 2.1 speakers. To tell you the truth the Bose sound way better, more clear, more spacious and more bassy than the JBL speakers, considering the JBL dont go as loud and cant take much bass at all. The test against the Klipsch 2.1 wasnt bad also.. considering these speakers are compact and dont have an extra subwoofer, and that the Klipsch are HUGE and have a BIG subwoofer(also way more pricey! They used to be over $, now like $).. the Bose have the same sound quality.. with some things sounding even more spacious, they just lack the room shaking bass that the Klipsch had. The sound fro mthe Bose is also more balanced and theres no gap between bass and the rest of the music. If you are gonna get these speakers know two things:

1) They provide amazing bass for their speaker category, but it isnt something that is room shaking, and the sound can be room filling as long as you place them well.

2) They are EXCELLENT for gaming(I have tested them with HALO and Nightfire), EXCELLENT for movies (I have tested Die Another Day, Star Wars Episode 1 and 2, Finding Nemo and many more, with certain scenes you can feel almost surround sound), and they are EXCELLENT for some types of music.. for others they are just good.

To give you an idea, orchestra music and movie soundtracks sound perfect on this speakers just by connecting them to a CD Player. But for other music like Rap, Hip Hop, some Rock and Techno youd like to have a nice soundcard that has an equalizer or at least Bass and Treble controls, or youd like to have a nice hoometheater receiver with good controls, or also youd need Windows Media Player 7.0 or higher and set the equalizer to your preferred settings. With Rap I get a lot of Bass with Eminem (Eminem Show), but when it comes to Ja Rule, a song like Furious or Always on Time doesnt get much bass. With Rock, I have tested Green Day and Good Charlotte and they sound excellent. With Techno I have tested 007 Nightfire music and songs from the internet and they sound nice. Reggae sounds good on them, and the best is instrumental music. A great sounding song on them is Here Without You from 3 Doors Down.

The speakers have 2 RCA Inputs, you can connect 2 things at once and mix both things. (For example get the alert sounds from your computer and have an Ipod connected to the other input, and just turn the mix knob a little). They go loud enough to get your mom yelling at you or to be heard around your house. They provide "lifelike" voices and instruments, especially with CDs recorded live. This is the perfect choice if you dont have more than $1! I am happy with them, they are way more then what I expected them to be.

Just remember the main things you need: A NICE sound card, dont expect great sound if your soundcard is crap, and if you dont have a nice soundcard that lets you adjust bass and treble controls, then just use Windows Media Player's Equalizer on Techno mode, but with the first 3 bars set to the medium level. Youll love them!

If you get this speakers and for some reason, when you connect them to your comp they sound bad or distorted, do this: Test them with your CD Player, connect Xbox or Ps2 directly to them, if those 2 things sound better than in your computer then consider changing your soundcard. These speakers also have a protection system that protects the speakers and makes sure the sound is not distorted. It starts working when your bass settings are way too high for the speakers to handle and you just have to either turn down the volume or decrease the level of bass. In your computer these speakers should sound better. I hope this helps many of you! :) One last thing to say: I also tested them outdoors and they bring out nice bass and are heard throughout my backyard.. they just arent weather-resistant though. Bose is the best in sound! ... ... Read more

In my opinion, most of the people who wrote reviews here really do not know much about speakers, because Bose have a horrible reputation with audiophiles.

I owned and returned these speakers. They are not horrible mind you, but you could do MUCH better for less money. If anyone is thinking about buying these, do yourself a favor and try the Cambridge SoundWorks "SoundWorks" 3 piece system first. They absolutely blow the Bose speakers away and retail for $69.

5-0 out of 5 stars For their size, category and prize...
...they are the best Compact 2 speaker set for Computers!

... I have owned my Mediamates for a year and 2 months right now, and I must say I am very happy with them. I have tested this speakers against the ones my old computer came with, that are JBL. Also, I have tested them against the ones my new computer came with, which are Klipsch 2.1 speakers. To tell you the truth the Bose sound way better, more clear, more spacious and more bassy than the JBL speakers, considering the JBL dont go as loud and cant take much bass at all. The test against the Klipsch 2.1 wasnt bad also.. considering these speakers are compact and dont have an extra subwoofer, and that the Klipsch are HUGE and have a BIG subwoofer(also way more pricey! They used to be over $, now like $).. the Bose have the same sound quality.. with some things sounding even more spacious, they just lack the room shaking bass that the Klipsch had. The sound fro mthe Bose is also more balanced and theres no gap between bass and the rest of the music. If you are gonna get these speakers know two things:

1) They provide amazing bass for their speaker category, but it isnt something that is room shaking, and the sound can be room filling as long as you place them well.

2) They are EXCELLENT for gaming(I have tested them with HALO and Nightfire), EXCELLENT for movies (I have tested Die Another Day, Star Wars Episode 1 and 2, Finding Nemo and many more, with certain scenes you can feel almost surround sound), and they are EXCELLENT for some types of music.. for others they are just good.

To give you an idea, orchestra music and movie soundtracks sound perfect on this speakers just by connecting them to a CD Player. But for other music like Rap, Hip Hop, some Rock and Techno youd like to have a nice soundcard that has an equalizer or at least Bass and Treble controls, or youd like to have a nice hoometheater receiver with good controls, or also youd need Windows Media Player 7.0 or higher and set the equalizer to your preferred settings. With Rap I get a lot of Bass with Eminem (Eminem Show), but when it comes to Ja Rule, a song like Furious or Always on Time doesnt get much bass. With Rock, I have tested Green Day and Good Charlotte and they sound excellent. With Techno I have tested 007 Nightfire music and songs from the internet and they sound nice. Reggae sounds good on them, and the best is instrumental music. A great sounding song on them is Here Without You from 3 Doors Down.

The speakers have 2 RCA Inputs, you can connect 2 things at once and mix both things. (For example get the alert sounds from your computer and have an Ipod connected to the other input, and just turn the mix knob a little). They go loud enough to get your mom yelling at you or to be heard around your house. They provide "lifelike" voices and instruments, especially with CDs recorded live. This is the perfect choice if you dont have more than $1! I am happy with them, they are way more then what I expected them to be.

Just remember the main things you need: A NICE sound card, dont expect great sound if your soundcard is crap, and if you dont have a nice soundcard that lets you adjust bass and treble controls, then just use Windows Media Player's Equalizer on Techno mode, but with the first 3 bars set to the medium level. Youll love them!

If you get this speakers and for some reason, when you connect them to your comp they sound bad or distorted, do this: Test them with your CD Player, connect Xbox or Ps2 directly to them, if those 2 things sound better than in your computer then consider changing your soundcard. These speakers also have a protection system that protects the speakers and makes sure the sound is not distorted. It starts working when your bass settings are way too high for the speakers to handle and you just have to either turn down the volume or decrease the level of bass. In your computer these speakers should sound better. I hope this helps many of you! :) One last thing to say: I also tested them outdoors and they bring out nice bass and are heard throughout my backyard.. they just arent weather-resistant though. Bose is the best in sound! ... ... Read more
