I just found my 2008 opinion. 5 years (not a malfunction)
Now that my office is completely soundproof, almost an anechoic chamber, the sound is beautiful. (Always with the speakers on the same plane, not directed at you)
Those who complain it is a problem of positioning, reflection or mp3 to 128K / s. Misguided, you lose 50% of the bandwidth almost flat. Smooth walls, ibid. The other type of speakers may be less prone to this problem.
I also believe that my Sennheiser HD250 begins to age (ears?), It disappoints me now (ok, 25 years). Even though my hearing is adapted to Bose in 5 years, I see much more detail with, and what dynamics (2 or 300w on the desktop, sorry).
2 USB connectivity needs to be alone on a hub (or a group of 2 or 4 contiguous taken on a PC) mixing with a scanner or a USB mouse 1 and the problems begin - Bose unrecognized. Ok in Win7-64
A background without modulation, I have a little breath now (but not if I mute switches).
Forget mp3, shows that all these pap default 256/320K below, and again. Prefer ogg / flac or CD to have serious normal.
Then select your artist. Remember ABBA (ie mono) find Mr. Jackson. Barry White is very unstable in the album. in short, all his faults highlighted.
I'd like to read the opinion of a sound engineer on these speakers without aprioris with clogs and having taken the time to position them correctly.
Next post for their 10 years.

Newtristan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
For DVDs, games, and CD. Mp3 high quality is perfect.
For cons, the. Compresssion mp3 too (old 128/192 Mbit / s) were too severe, even with the serious SETTING THE 0. Previous speakers with my Philips 2.0, no not this serious problem. The lightweight subwoofer cut a little high, we can locate it: think the focus derrire office. The sound filled the well-pice, one can walk around with a constant volume can prs. Must be a hole / bump in bandwidth from qq (low mdium), but this dpend your indoor amnagement. I think Bose has a flat curve rponse. My rglages EQ MP3 Windows Media 2.0 (not 5.1): 31Hz (-6) 62Hz (-2) 8Khz (-2) 16Khz (-2); Housing: 0 (!)
Test with Get far shining star: dcolle wallpaper. A dynamic non-standard: On Mirwais - Naive_song, jai always had saturations, the headphones, the sound blows without flinching. Tlcommande practice with the Mute, as jai often hand it to mclater eardrums. What my particulirement sduit: the cblage simple, enter into any 5.1 USB which eliminates default sound transmission, virtually no wind (above ear), immune to GSM. Nice thing: when you unplug the headphone thingy round, the sound is muted will not turn a holler back! Old auto (no M / A). Only regret: the wheel nest not infinite, like what nimporte amp A / V with volume remote control. No rglage possible physiological CHARACTERISTICS - acoustic lengin. A fiber would have between 5.1 t perfect (but that would have competed at 321).
APRS a week will cost you, as the sound is perfect in 5.1, it is always in spcial 2.0 (USB or analog inputs). In fact, in 2.0, we must respect the Map of 60cm between the two speakers ... if not too severe, acute "tchic-tchic" masculine way behind. Too bad for those who have two or three notches.
So I ENTSO rglage total lack of software on the drivers for the spcifier 2.0, estimate the lower and the curve rponse.
 APRS another week, I start really apprcies, exit the headset to listen songs nice: The Companion 5 is also enjoyable!
Should I advise them? 400? Yes, detached house, for DVDs, games, gallery and paternal condition to have only 20 "wide, no more!
 respect the cart of 60cm from the speakers.
[edit 08/2009] Seven Works perfectly under 64-bit (we had some pbs with Vista - never used Vista)
