If You are interested in buying a Bose 2.0 speakers for Your desktop setup and You wonder which one of these two is better choice than here is a video for You. As You probably can hear neither Bose Companion 2 III nor Bose Companion 20 can be called neutral or natural sounding speaker. Both present the sound that is highly maninpulated to appear big and spacious by boosting the midbass and pushing midrange upfront. I have rather unfavourable opinion on both of them, but if I was asked to choose between them than I would say to go with the cheaper one. Honestly I can not stand listening to Bose Companion 20 more than few minutes without getting angry, while Bose Companion 2 is more tolerable to my ears, especially considering the pirce tag. What do You think? Would You consider buying Bose speakers? Let me know in the comments below! Cheers!

  1. In your other comparison, Bose Companion 2 III vs Creative T20, Bose stops producing sound at 50 Hz frequency (or very low mybe), and nothing comes out at 45 Hz frequency. But here I still can here it. Does it have something to do with the setting of your recorder?

  2. Cheaper Speakers Sound Better. The 20's are Very Disappointing. I have the Creative T 40-II series and they are Fantastic.

  3. i tested both out in my own room for nearly a week with jazz, rock, blues, funk music, to me the companion 20 speakers are indeed louder (higher SPL) more deeper bass, but also very fatiguing to listen to, why? simple, these are very commercial tuned with a annoying peak in the mid high region, probably to impress the innocent buyer in the shop, actually the companion 2 series being a older design has a BETTER overall sound profile maybe less HiFi¨ but in the long run easier to live with, so i returned the companion 20 and bought for the price difference another pair of companion 2.0 , that was five years ago and im still enjoying these marvelous little speakers!

  4. Another gold review . Listening with AKG 702 dedicate professional headphone amp out from RME sound card Baby-face pro , sound is netterò out from Companion that maybe has a little bit less mid and high , but 20 has too of these and its sound result too harsh and e estive brillante. IMHO obviously . Byte from Italy and thanks for your gold work

  5. I've got the 20's man, hand's down superior when playing high end wav flac etc.. Believe me they wow everytime! People saying they lack mids, not the csae I use equalizer pro for iso and when adjusted the music algorithm really does make these speakers shine.. 😉

  6. I used to have companion 2 series 1 and when I switched to companion 20, I had to laugh for like 5 minutes, because of the sound difference. The bass companion 20 produces without a separate sub is just stunning. If you don’t want a 2.1 system, then companion 20 it is.
