Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers (Sold As Pair)

When it comes to judging the Bose® 301® speaker against others in its class, there really is no comparison. Once you hear the lifelikesound you'll know why. Advanced Bose Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology reflects sound off the walls of your room. The result is arich, natural blend of reflected and direct sound that conventional speakers cannot match. Music sounds more like what you'd hear at aconcert. Movie sound effects approach what you'd experience in a movie theater. Discover why the streamlined, newly redesigned 301speaker is at the head of its class.

Product highlights:

  • Our best bookshelf speaker engineered for music and as a front- or rear-channel solution for home theater.
  • Direct/Reflecting®speaker technology delivers lifelike, spacious music.
  • Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance lets you hear stereo sound almost anywhere in the room.
  • Hear full, natural low notes from a ported enclosure.
Top-shelf performance for stereo and surround sound.
Compare Bose® 301® speakers against other bookshelf systems, and you'll understand why this is one of the world's best-selling speakers. These versatile and elegant speakers are ideal for movies, music and more.

Advancing a long-standing tradition of high-quality audio, 301 speakers feature Bose proprietary Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology to re-create lifelike, spacious sound. You enjoy a natural balance of reflected and direct sound for a listening experience most conventional speakers cannot match. Music sounds similar to what you'd hear at a concert, while movie sound effects resonate much the way they do at the theater.

For lifelike music and movies, just add walls.

The 301 speakers fit practically anywhere — living room, bedroom, wherever you'd like. Acoustically and visually, they match other Bose speakers for seamless sound and styling. If you're thinking about component home theater arrangements, they can serve as front speakers with our VCS-10® center channel speaker and 201® or 161™ speakers for surround sound. Or use 301 speakers as rear surround speakers with a VCS-10 center channel and 701® or 601™ speakers up front.

With so many options at your disposal, it's little wonder Bose 301 speakers are soundly above all others in their class.


Advanced technologies make all the difference.
Most conventional speakers radiate sound directly into the room, sending balanced stereo sound to one small "sweet spot." The 301 speaker system is designed to deliver Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance. You can sit just about anywhere in the room and still enjoy balanced stereo sound.

Direct/Reflecting® and Stereo Targeting® tweeter provide mid to high frequencies over a wide, stable area between the speakers. And 8-inch woofers in each speaker enable smooth reproduction of deep, low notes, even at high volumes. You want to hear the full spectrum of audio, and this speaker delivers.

The 301 speakers also feature a host of accessories for many placement options, and streamlined styling to complement your room design.

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers:

I bought the 301 after much review and thought. Since I listen to jazz, classical, western and vocal, I decided over this superb piece. I have connected to an amp of 70 rms . Years back it was a dream when I would see the ads in Reader's Digest of the Bose Corporation.In fact the year 2016 starts with Bose Speaker system........I love it .......I admire it.....I mean it.....

best sound for the price

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers:

I bought two sets of the 301's back in 2000. I fell in love with the sound quality of a set of 501's while in Europe and have had Bose products around me since. Even my Mazda has a Bose system in it. Although I'd love to have a pair of 901's life is good with my 301's. It is unbelievable to have surround sound with only two speakers. The total overall sound that the 301's deliver is just like what everyone talks about "like being there" you hear everything and such a beautiful balance of bass, midrange and the highs. every product that I have purchased from Bose, has never let me down in the sound or design.

Great sounding speaker

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers:

I have had these speakers for little over a month now and so far, they have been an excellent speaker. I was using the Bose satellite speakers I have had for about 15 years and though they sound great, they do not have the full sound I am looking for. The 301 speaker gives me a fuller sound.

Changed my view

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers:

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.

Great Sound, Long Life

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers:

I bought a pair of 301s way back when they were series II. If the newest series are at least as good you can't go wrong with them. I used them primarily in a small living room and now in a bedroom. Don't put them right up against the wall. The placement specs given in the owners manual are just recommendations. Experiment with how far you have them from the side walls and the ceiling or floor. When you get it right you won't believe the quality of the sound coming from such small speakers. The overall frequency response and sound quality is amazing.

    Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers:

    Purchaced for a computer room/office.
    Did not want any high priced cheap sounding 'computer speakers'. I do a lot of work with audio mixing and developement, therefore need loudspeakers that are accurate and natural sounding. The speakers are connected to my computer with the Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Elite Pro via a Harman Kardon HK3485 reciever rated at 120 watts per channel @ 8ohms.
    The sound is crisp, clear, and the bass is tight.
    Being a direct reflecting design, they even sound good if you are forced to place them close together.
    For the size, these sound amazing.
    The bottom line...these speakers do not dissapoint!

    Service and delivery comments:

    E-mail communications with ABT was outstanding.
    Speakers arrived very well packaged and in perfect condition.
