When you speak like that, it's hard to establish any credibility.
My father bought bose and I thought "hey, cool, I heard these were great speakers!". Guess what, that's all they were, really well marketed because they could of fooled me. Even my dad, who isn't as much of an audiophile (who scolded me for spending more than 75$ on headphones), knew he was had. Luckily, he got them discounted 35% off, but even at the price he paid, it still left a sour taste in his mouth and a ringing in his ears.
That's not to say that ALL bose products are "terrible" or "suck". On the contrary, if I would recommend any bose products to friends, since most people are ipod people, the bose sound dock is surprisingly good, with great highs, decent mid and low frequency reproduction. Not even "for a dock" quality, it rivals alot of dedicated 2.1 systems if not bests them. And their sound isolating headphones that I've tried are actually pretty good, but I wouldn't spent that much on that. Sorry, Bose just does not deliver dollar for dollar is all I'm saying, and their are SO MANY alternatives if people would just take the time to look.
I own, Grado SR80s, SR225s, AKG 3100, and a klipshe AV system for my PC/home entertainment in my room. I'm not loyal to any company dude, just a product that delivers what I want and need at a good price.
And for that reason, Bose does suck, in the same way other companies with a great marketing team sucks. Less marketing, more research.
