I have just recently received the Bose 301 speakers and I just love the sound quality. I had purchased these speakers for surround sound purposes for my stereo. I have the Bose 701's floor tower speakers that I use as my main stereo speakers.
I would definitely recommend the Bose 301 speakers for surround sound purpose to add to any stereo.
Thanks again QVC
Rated 3 out of 5 by professoremeritus BOUGHT FOR STEREO SYSTEM
Purchased these to replace old floor speakers for a top-of-the-line Harmon Kardon amplifier/radio with a Sony multi-disc CD player. I purchased the best speaker cable one can find from a supplier of audio equipment to replace the old speaker cable when I installed these Bose speakers. The sound is full, but not as clear as I would like---keep in mind that I am using them for a stereo sound system for music and radio. I find that the treble (high notes) sound warped and the mid-tones are not very clear. I do admit that I formerly used larger speakers---but have downsized to much smaller living arrangements and these speakers, as advertised, should be able to reverberate clearly throughout the room in which they have been placed. Although Bose has an excellent reputation, these speakers, in my opinion, are a bit overpriced, but then I purchased them because QVC was offering them on easy pay .
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kris65 They ROCK!!
First these were bigger than I expected not a bad thing at all, they ROCK out the sound. The music is so crisp, clear and awesome. Can't say enough about Bose it's simply the best for music and TV. I know own four sets of different Bose Speakers for My PC's Stereo and TV. Thank you QVC and Bose.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Indiana1953 Not so much to brag about
Disapointed in product. I thought I would be able to connect to my big flat screen TV. but that couldn't happen. The product information could have given more detail on what additional equipment is needed to connect this set of speakers. Also for the cost of them you would think you would get wires to connect them as well. BUT NO! well they went back. Also larger then I thought. For me a waist of shipping to me and retuned cost as well of the cost of wires for them not to work.

the speakers were better than what I expected. Not disappointed at all! I tought because of the size that they would not look or sound right, however, I was wrong. Purchased the stands as well and they look better than I predicted. Bose did it again. Delivery was awesome, received the package the day before, which was great!

This is my second set of 301,s bought the first set in 1998, out of the two one is still standing strong. Great sound, doesn't require lots of space, easy on the eye and they last forever. I got them on 6 payments which makes them a even sweeter deal. You won't regret the purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JC1975 WOW-you can't go wrong with Bose!
I love watching and listening to surround sound movies and music. My wife on the other hand would rather listen to the speakers from the t.v. I have a yamaha reciever with pioneer front and rear surround speakers and a bose center channel speak. I bought these two speakers for the front two surround speakers. They came in within a few days of ordering them. I hooked them up and they sounded awesome. I changed the reciever to 2ch speakers to elimate the rear speakers just to watch tv. They are clear and project sound so well that using just the two speakers is perfect. My wife is happy and I'm happy with the compromise when watching a movie with her. With the entire 6.1 system (when the wife is not around) you will be even more amazed with the clearity and overall sound.

I got a pair of these in December. They are used as front ch speakers, they replace a pair of 201's. A big difference because the 301's put out very clear highs and a very rich in quality sound. I rate the Bose 301 as a best buy in bookshelf speakers. My older Bose 201s are now my rear ch speakers. Bose is tops in my book.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tmoney Changed my view
I got these as a graduation present back in '04 and paired them up with some darn good Klipsch speakers. These things changed the way I view sound. I thought an HDTV would improve my gaming experience. HECK NO! These things thump. The gaming experience was so rich that I felt like I had an advantage playing online. Further, I peeled through my MP3 collection listening to old songs over and over again because I heard sounds I didnt know were there. I also noticed cruddy MP3 quality. Such rich filling sound leaves little for wanting more.
Audio-philes hate and hate. Their ears may be better than mine, and their rants may be right and I may have not compared too many speakers, but my experience with Bose is one that was so good that I would be extremely skeptical switching to some other brand.
