If your laptop or PC is a prime source of entertainment, Computer MusicMonitor is a premium choice to make the most of it. It’s our smallest, two-piece computer speaker system, with sound well beyond its size. Elegant yet unobtrusive, this system is for anyone who wants the best audio quality for their movies, music and games.

  • Proprietary technologies deliver surprisingly full sound for small speakers
  • Ideal as laptop, PC and portable audio speakers
  • Volume and power controls on the right speaker, or use remote

Enjoy high quality sound with convincing low notes, performance that is typically expected from larger speakers or a three-piece system with a bass module. Our MusicMonitor computer sound system is an alternative for serious listeners who prefer a two-piece solution offering exceptional performance, simplicity and more desktop space.

This unexpected sound quality results from innovative Bose® amplifier technology, combined with proprietary acoustic design, highly efficient neodymium speakers and Bose digital signal processing.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed Review and Comparisons Recently we bought the Bose Computer MusicMonitors to add music another room in our home. We have several Bose computer speakers connected to Airport Expresses in order to stream music all throughout the house. How do the MusicMonitors perform and compare to other Bose offerings? Here are our impressions: BUILD The MusicMonitors are built like a tank! There is a great heft to the metal inclosure which houses the proprietary transducers, passive radiators and non-linear amp. The quality and heft of the speakers are similar to that of the solid metal SoundLink Mini. Unfortunately the remote, while handy, feels cheep. Still, it will more likely be lost than broken. SOUND If there were just one word to describe the sound it would be, "CRISP!" When we played a CD on our iMac we could hear every nuance of every instrument with incredible separation and precision. The detail, clarity and over-all sound signature are very similar to my Bose QC15 over-ear headphones which are great. At lower volumes, The MusicMonitors can be a bit too crisp. They can sound sterile lacking warmth. Crank the MusicMonitors up, however, and they become deep and rich as is expected from Bose. By the way, there is virtually no downgrade in music quality when the volume is maxed out. Instead the quality shines more the louder they are played. Voices are projected nicely front-and-center to the rest of the music. This is fantastic as many Bose speakers tend to have mids that are slightly withdrawn - QC15 headphones included. FURTHER COMPARISONS So, we compared our new purchase to the Bose Companion 20 which are also computer speakers. The 20s are much more pleasantly warm sounding at every volume, though not as crisp and detailed as the Monitors. The Companion 20 also are more dynamic with a punchier bass. I would say that even the bass on the Companion 2 Series III speakers has more thump than the Monitors though the quality of the bass on the Companion 2's sounds synthetic and very loose by comparison. Of course, none of these can match the bass of our Bose Companion 3 Series II (yes, we own them all) which has a dedicated subwoofer. The MusicMonitors sound far more detailed and accurate than the Bose SoundDock Series II. Yet again, the Monitors lack some of that richness at lower volumes that even the SoundDock has. Finally, the MusicMonitors get much louder than our SoundLink Color and there is no comparison to the quality of the sound - the Monitors easily best the bluetooth speaker in every regard. CONCLUSION The Bose MusicMonitors are a small pair of speakers that give a GREAT quality of music at moderately high volumes. If you need the small footprint then they are the best you can get. For example, if you travel and want laptop speakers which will outperform a Bluetooth speaker then you cannot go wrong with the MusicMonitors. If decision is amongst Bose computer speakers then you have a more difficult decision. I agree with other reviewers who say that the Monitors are more accurate in faithful music reproduction, but the Companion 20's generally sound better because of the greater warmth and dynamics. The 20's are about twice the size though. If space is not the issue, then consider a 2.1 Bose computer system - you will fall in love. Really, it is not just about having loud bass. The subwoofer makes all music much more dynamic and engaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little speakers As soon as I found these little gems on the Bose website I purchased them.They are wonderful and worth every penny. If I redesigned them at all, I would change the wiring set up. For example there is way too much extra cordage that I have bundled up behind my MacBook. I only need maybe 18 inches and there is nothing you can do about it. Other than that these things are awesome.
