    "I bought these for my son for Christmas and now I'm getting ready to order some for myself. I have always bought Bose products, and these didn't disappoint. I did research most every PC speaker known to man in this category, and finally decided on the Bose for one reason: I still have MY Bose speakers from 8 years ago and , while outdated ,they are still going strong! It's a quality product."

    "I'm really happy with these speakers and love the small size of them. The sound quality is really great for the price. They are really easy to set up and less cables since it uses a USB plug. I hate having all those extra cables around. "

    "In this kind of devices, battery life is a key issue. This speaker gives you more than 24 hours of battery life, this is very very good. And the phono mode adds a lot of value to this device. Now the vinyl records are coming back, so it is important to have a speaker prepared for that. The price is a little bit high but if you want to have a solid, durable speaker with a lot of stamina, this is a good choice. "

    "THIS is what I am looking for. Bose has been making speakers for at least the past fifty years, and they know how to do it the best. These speakers cost $99 and have been purchased by at least 2,950 people who love them! Once you've hooked them up to your PC using a simple auxiliary input, you can also add other devices without having to unhook the original network. These speakers have been labeled "Amazon's Choice", which is an indicator of a quality product."

    "This basic model is ideal for a personal audio room. I set up sound deadening panels to drown out outside noise. That's when the quality of this speaker really came through. I can hear my classic rock tunes without distortion no matter how loud I play the music."

    "The product for the section seems like a good value for the money. The speaker's seem like they're decent quality and seem like a good value for the money. I did not see any rating on the site for the speakers so that would be a detractor. Also the speakers appear to be for a car stereo system, not a PC or home theater system. Unless one is willing to build their own system from scratch I would not buy these speakers for a PC or home stereo system."
