Yes, exactly! It’s really hard to describe a sound, the main features of the companions are powerful sounding base BUT absolutely no muddiness whatsoever, and outstanding clarity and detail. Theres is also a certain overarching “depth” quality that I just can’t really describe. I think it’s much more important that you hear the Bose (rather than the SM’s) to get what I’m looking for, perhaps a brief stop at one of their stores or outlets if convenient. Thanks for considering this request!
