Bose Companion 2 Series II Video
The Bose Acoustimass 6 Series III speaker system delivers a big sound from exceptionally small speakers, but its high price keeps it from being a good value pick.
While they're no bargain, the Bose QuietComfort 15s currently offer the best sound and silencing capabilities in a pair of noise-canceling headphones.
The Bose SoundDock Portable is a really good iPod speaker system, but it should cost less.
The Altec Lansing FX2020 are entry-level PC speakers that have a distinct tube-shape design and have a decent sound for the price.
If you're willing to pay a premium, the Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile speaker is the best portable Bluetooth speaker on the market.
If you can handle its big and burly speakers, the Pioneer SP-PK21BS is the absolutely best-sounding speaker package we've heard at anywhere near this price.
If you can't afford Bose's noise-canceling models, the Bose AE2s--and their improved design and sound quality--make for a good alternative at half the price.
If you've got the space for it, the Pioneer SP-PK52FS is simply the best-sounding, budget-price home theater speaker package you can buy.
The tiny Bose MusicMonitor computer speakers are ideal for buyers who need the smallest possible speakers, but you can find better-sounding alternatives at this price.
This entry-level DVD recorder offers a FireWire input, but its confusing menus and useless remote will confound beginners.
Bose Companion 2 Series II (graphite) Review
The good: Headphone jack and volume control on front of right speaker; dual stereo inputs; respectable bass for a 2.0 desktop speaker; attractive design; most affordable Bose PC speakers.
The bad: Sound isn't as good as other computer speakers in this price class.
The bottom line: Bose's entry-level Companion 2 Series II speakers offer good bass and dual inputs--but they're not the best-sounding PC speakers in their price class.
