OVERVIEW

Premium computer speakers deliver multichannel sound that seems to surround you.

The Bose Companion 5 multimedia speaker system is engineered to deliver the excitement of surround sound content right at your computer - without the clutter of five speakers. Just two small speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module deliver much of the audio performance you'd expect from a five-speaker surround sound system. And a single USB connection is all it takes to get it working - no special software, hardware or sound card upgrade necessary.

Enjoy an enveloping sound experience without enveloping yourself in hardware or crazy tangle of extra wires. Proprietary TrueSpace surround digital signal processing enables two elegant desktop speakers and a compact module to put you in the middle of the action. And the experience is developed especially for computer listening, so you're right in the middle of your music, gaming and special effects.

The Companion 5 system features a handy all-in-one control pod to keep speaker volume control, single-touch mute, a headphone jack and an auxiliary input all within easy reach. The speakers are conveniently mounted on stands.

Two small, easy-to-place speakers on stands and an Acoustimass module

The problem I've encountered is that they only use the Microsoft Drivers only. If you are capturing audio, it can't be done. It's not capable of outputting "What You Hear" or the System Sounds to a recording device. There should have been a driver by Bose to accomplish this as the connection to the computer is via USB, not a soundcard.

The best

By Dale

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I bought these about 8 years ago. I work in an aircraft hangar, lots of other radios out there in the hangar but they are nothing compared to these. I plug my iPod into it and crank it ...not that it needs to be cranked, have had people asking me to turn it down because they can't hear theirs . The bass is beyond amazing, the speakers have amazing sound...my recommendation...buy it, worth every penny. Sounds better than most home stereos ..really can't say enough about this system..if you love your music then buy this

Excellent Speakers (PC & MAC Comparison)

By fabianshc

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

They are excellent speakers. The quality is really superb. However, I noticed that there might be a difference in sound quality in PC and Mac. The speakers sound better with Windows rather than Apple OS. I use them on Windows using Bootcamp and feel that there is a difference in sound quality. Hopefully Bose will fix it.

Quality pays

By Big Mike

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I've had these 5 years now, they can't be beat! If there's better ones out there I don't need them. Just today like a few times over the past years I've had my back to the speakers and thought someone was behind me, the sound comes right out into the room! It's like it bounces off the walls. Even youtube sounds much better. Came online to see if they something to top this system, but then again why bother!

Great Sound

By emorene

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I bought these and liked them enough that I bought another set for a replacement when the first set breaks down. 4 years later the first set is still going strong. I gave them a 10 on the recommend question, not sure if it was a rating guide.

Simply the best

By Tom

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I don't know why it took me so long to look at Bose for my computer speakers - I have Bose products throughout my house. But I can tell you, these are the best small computer/audio speakers I've ever experienced. The only downside? I had to buy to more pair for my kids, who were hopelessly jealous.

The best speakers i've EVER had

By JosephNinety

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I've had these for nearly 10 years now and they have never disappointed me in performance or sound quality. The size of them is is deceptive but my goodness, what a punch for the money. I've not particularly looked after mine in comparison to most Bose users. Been used and abused and still going strong! One of the speakers even had red wine spilled on it last weekend......still working. I'll never want to replace these.

Great buy.

By Paul D

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

This is my first review of any product ever. I bought this set of speakers for a PC in 2007 and have been using them every day since. I use the speakers for music, movies and gaming. I have used these speakers in a pinch for the TV when my receiver was in for repairs. i have used these speakers for party music with an mp3 player. The sound is always great very crisp highs perfectly balanced with mids and un-distorted lows. I would not hesitate to buy this exact pair again if these ever decide to quit. It is hard to find a company with such high integrity as bose. If you are undecided about this product, please buy it. you can thank me later.

I've had mine for.... Wow You'd have to ask Bose

By Brandan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I bought my companion 5 when they first came out..... the system has virtually been unchanged since then. I couldn't afford a quality home theatre system when I purchased this so I bought this and connected it as a home theatre system. Worked amazing even with my tv.... Thankfully I now have a Home theatre System and this is still the very best paired with my iMac ! I think it has been ten years..... still works great !!! Bose stands behind their products if something doesn't go right . I like to buy things from companies who love what they do..... they seem to care more about the customer. I want people to care if something goes wrong, on a previous Bose product I had a problem and they sent a new replacement, problem solved.

Excellent Sound - High Quality - Long Life

By Dan in Los Angles

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I bought this system in 2008 and it still sounds great today. These are very good for playing video games or watching video in a small room with your head close to the screen and speakers. This is great tool for producing video productions with good audio for school, sports teams, or other organizations for display in small to mid-size auditoriums with low to midrange audio systems. My highest recommendation. I would not recommend using these in a living room size environment. If your plan on doing presentations in spaces larger than 500 people with a high end sound system you should spend the extra cash for a good amplifier hooked up to true studio "reference speakers".

Great speakers

By jim of the jungle

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

These speakers are spectacular. Had them since they first came out in 2006 and still playing strong even after the sub was partially soaked in water from flooding. Would definitely buy again. Although they don't go too loud for parties these are great for a small get together. Although I wish they also had a bluetooth pod to connect rather than having to use an aux cable to connect to my phone.

Years of great quality and unmatched performance

By tarussell

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

Like a few reviews I have just seen, I have had this speaker system for years! They still sound wonderful. I never expected to keep them so long because I am known for continuing to upgrade every component of my computer every year. There is just nothing on the market that can match the Companion 5 system for size and sound for a desk. They work every time. They have worked for me with Windows XP to Windows 10, from MAC Leopard and up! Whether I am watching streaming video, playing a game or streaming music...It all sounds great! I am just amazed this system has lasted so well and still sounds amazing. One of the best computer purchases I have ever made and I work in the cyber industry!
