Most consumers wouldn't know how to compare a Bose system much less know what anything should sound like.. They go into a store they know Bose is a big name, they hear it, its sounds good, and bingo. Sold!
This is not a slight to anyone. It's just facts. Just like the article I posted that you don't want to acknowledge that clearly proves Bose in incredibly overpriced and very low quality. Whether someone likes it is irelavant. Sorry, its the truth. I am glad people get enjoyment from their Bose systems. However it would have to be by far the least recommended brand on here and the audio industry. Why is that? Is it because we are snobs? Is it because we look to pick on certain people?
No such thing as an objective Bose comparison anyway:
1. You cant really compare since nobody in traditional B&M has anything as small
2. Most consumers never heard of most speakers out there and would not know where to go to audition them anyway.
3. Most consumers don't care, don't have the time.
4. Where has there ever been a listening test that was fair anyway?
5. Many consumers are just flat out afraid to get into the whole auditioning process.
This has nothing to do with any posters here like or dislike of the product. This certainly does not have anything to do with technical data either. That is great that you are in the Hi-tech industry and are familiar with specs etc..What do specs have to do with the fact that bose makes crap a la Kia and prices it like a BMW? Kias drive fine but not at BMW prices. If someone told you they paid $40K for a Kia you would laugh at them. Or, would you would not laugh because "everyones tastes are different" or, "that person gets enjoyment from their kia" or, "we are trying to shove or automobile tastes down this Kia owners throat" NO, the person wasted money. period.
They are almost a perfectly executed MLM company. All they need is to change their name to amway. I got it Boseway.
You tell me this has nothing to do with posters who dislike the product!!! That is good. Hahahahahahahahahahaha.
Yea I can tell you have NOTHING against Bose.
Bruins29, you are a troll.
After looking through your whopping 100 posts, I see the majority of them are anti Bose in some sort of manner or another. I would say 80-90% of your posts are in the below three threads.
You have most of your posts in the Is Bose The Way To Go Thread.
You have several posts in the Bose attack, ouch that hurts thread
You have some posts in the Small vs. Large Speaker manufacturers.
Why do you guys keep going back to these pathetic car analogies!!! PLEASE!!!! Speakers are personal. They sound different to everyone. What sounds bright to some, sound detailed to the next. A $2000 winter beater is exactly what it is. If it appeals to your senses like speakers or food does, then perceptions are going to be different every time.
Actually, I bet there are a lot of people on this site that would rather have a car like the KIA than the BMW. Believe it or not, there are a lot of people out there that would rather put their hard earned $$ into something that holds its value better than a high priced automobile.
First of all, nobody is paying $40K for a KIA OK.
Stupid way to get you point across.
If Bose sounds as good as other speakers in their price range to Bose owners, than did they get ripped off??? I say no. There are a lot of things in the A/V industry that are over priced.
Stepped into an A/V boutique store lately??
Seems like it could be the Bose bashers that are the sheeple. Bose bashing has always been the "in" thing to do on this forum since I have been a member.
You guys bashing Bose ARE jamming your tastes down the throats of other people.
If these statements were made about another speaker, people would be quick to say, Everyone hears things differently, so you should respect their tastes.
