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.

System includes:
Two small, easy-to-place speakers on stands and an Acoustimass module
A USB cable to connect the system to your computer
A control pod that allows you to control system volume and connect headphones or portable MP3 audio players

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.

Excellent sound system for computers

By venkat

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

Excellent sound system connected to computers. Low (bass) output are the plus point of companion 5. Watching movie gives us the awesome cinema experience at home. I am using it for 2 years. This product inspired me to buy cine mate 15 for my TV. Extra ordinary performance of this system is we get same low (bass) and high at very low volume too. USB input's sound output are very very good. But, aux input's sound output is not up to the level of USB. Bose can improve.

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.

A superb sounding system!

By The swan 76

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

When I first heard the Bose Companion 5 sound displayed to me - full volume, I insisted - I could not wait to purchase it and get it back home. I use this tidy little system through my I-Pad in a room of 5x5 meters square. Placed in the center against one of he walls the quality and clarity of sounds from music, films or gaming doesn't drop wherever I'm placed. The set-up is so simple. The volume control device I particularly like, as it can be placed anywhere upon my desk. I've had it over 2 years now. And I'll keep it for as long as it lasts, regardless of any other similar systems. Recommending you purchase this system is a no-brainer!! Enjoy....

I have it for 6 years and still happy with it

By Octavian

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I bought this from Bucharest, Romania about 6 years ago and I am still happy with the product. Yes , is true that the autosleep mode is annoying but the difference is the quality of sound and the resistance over time. If it broke I will buy the same.

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

They sound great but I might like more bass or midrange then the factory settings but have no control over these settings and do not like that.

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.

Sleep mode ruined it

By agu

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

Dont buy this, the sleep mode feature will turn off the devide after 10'. And you need to manually turn it on. Very-very stupid idea to put this feature.

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!

Lasted for 5+ years, still excellent

By GR980

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I have had this system for 5-7 years now - I assume it hasn't changed much, albeit slightly cheaper now. The system is great. If you are an audiophile like I and pay attention to all the highs, lows, and have to get everything just right, you'll love these. There are no options to set on them, they just come great. I use them with a 2015 MacBook Air, and there are no compatibility issues at all. The subwoofer is very responsive and has a volume dial that allows you to adjust the bass response from none to very-high. I am currently using it on a travertine floor and even on that dense surface I can still feel the bass in my feet if I choose to. Great for any style of music, as well as online videos, etc. The two mid-range/tweeters (which are combined) conceal well and offer a surround-like sound shape. Obviously there are only two of them, but the curved shape of the speaker housing does a fantastic job of emulating the sound out 'around you' and the system easily feels like a true 5.1 system. I should also mention that I've moved residences 5 times with these speakers and they have held up perfectly. They sound brand new. Well worth the initial investment.
