If they were that concerned about it, people would to their research.
I thought that the parts of the article talking about the Bose displays in audio stores made the company look a bit underhanded. For the rest of it, it sounds like they make overpriced, underperforming speakers. No one's forcing them to buy Bose and if people wanted to do a little research, they'd find there are better alternatives. Can't fault Bose for advertising and telling people they think their products are great, can you? Maybe the other, respected names in HiFi could take out some magazine ads in mainstream magazines?
