Bose Customer Service Is Great

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by mike_v_s, Aug 16, 2005.

  1. This morning my daughter attempted to increase the single CD capacity of my Bose Wave Radio by ramming the Shrek 2 Sountrack, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Disc 4 of Message In A Box: The Complete Recordings of The Police into it. I just got off the phone with Bose. The verdict? No charge to me. It'll be repaired or replaced with no charge to me. It brightened my day, so I thought I'd pass along my stamp of approval for the company (this carries a lot of weight in some circles).

    That's awesome, what actually broke? Hope you weren't too upset at your daughter :0
  3. The disc player no longer accepts discs. Yeah, I was irritated at her, but she's 2...so a lecture isn't sticking.

    Buddy of mine's daughter once stuck a PBJ sandwich into
    his VCR. Exit one tape machine.

    Buddy of mine also works for Bose. He posts here occasionally.
    He'll be happy to hear it, between snaking out their toilets.

    I don't own anything from Bose, but this thread may affect my purchasing decision in the future. Not really. :D

    When I was really young I stuck Teddy Grams in to our Nintendo NES.

  8. I said some circles.

  9. Mike, good for you that Bose is going out of their way to make things right. :)

    I've never had to deal with Bose' customer service department, and that reflects directly on the quality of their products.

    I've had a pair of their 501 V speakers for 10 years now, and they still sound great.

    One of the most balanced-sounding home speakers I've ever heard.

    Viva Bose !!! :hyper:

  11. With my Bose 501 Vs, it's as though Jane Monheit is right in my living room. :cool:

    I just hope her husband doesn't find out. :p

    Mike :D

    Isn't she married to the drummer in her backup band or

    I like BOSE. They keep Funkster employed. 'Nuff said.

    Any company that employs our own Funkster has to be a quality outfit.
