OVERVIEW

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

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

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".

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.

Not worth

By Abhinav

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I have used this product for almost 7 years .Speakers only work good at high volume , and at low volumje the bass is so high thar all other features of music is undermines , buy it for only party purposes not recomended for medium and low volumes, Also with the advancement of windows , now it is even not manageable to change sound setting and choosing windows options to change sound mode like earlier i could have chosen jazz , folk etc. sound modes available , but now we mostly listen online songs directly from browser ( with no equalizer avail. ) ans so windows equaliser is required which does not works high end music systems with windows 8 or 10.

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I bought this product about a week ago now, it is absolutely outstanding. The bass is incredible, and the sound is just brilliant. All the controls are very easy to use, and the speakers are a very nice design. Setup is very straight forward and simple. I highly recommend this product.

Speaker wires

By ErnieSlatton

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I purchased Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system for my computer which I have a Projector that has a 200" screen. and I cant use the speakers because there is no way to add speaker wire to the speakers. They really should offer adapter speaker wire to increase the distance.

Nearly Great - Except for Auto Mute!!

By Frustrated in NYC

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

The sound is great - no question. Just one very, very annoying thing - it has a automatic mute feature that is unbelievably annoying - and to a lot of people. Just google it - there are forums of people discussing the annoying automatic mute feature of this model. Basically, the device very quickly - within a just few minutes of not having sound input - goes to sleep - which is basically like mute. If you've got it hooked up via USB, then it'll usually "wake" the speakers once sound starts coming through. BUT - if you use the line-in connection, it DOESN'T AUTOMATICALLY WAKE UP! You have to manually unmute the speakers every single time sound starts to play again. How incredibly annoying. Watch a few online videos - if you don't start the next video soon enough, it'll mute your speakers and you have to manually unmute ("wake up") the speakers. I find myself constantly "unmuting" these things. I'm actually considering throwing these speakers in the trash and replacing them with something that doesn't have such a useless and utterly annoying feature. It's called an "energy saving" feature, but all it does is make daily life with these speakers unnecessarily frustrating. It's really a shame, as the speakers themselves sound better than any other speaks I've had - but what good is the sound quality if you can't hear it?

No Regret!

By ptrzpan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

The first time I encountered Bose speaker was when my friend introduce me with his Companion 3 speaker, and it sounds outstanding, from that time I decided to purchase Bose speaker for myself. Based on my friend recommendation, I bought the Companion 5. After using this speaker for almost 2 years, I use it mostly for gaming (on PC and PS3) and also watching movie on weekends. I could say that it really life up to its purpose, to deliver amazing experience for gaming and movie watching. I also appreciate the simulated surround sound technology, although it's not as real as having 5.1 surround sound speaker, I could assure you that the simulation is surprisingly good, it felt like as if I have two more speaker behind me. In short, if you're looking for deep immersive sound experience for gaming and movie in your PC/laptop, but you have limited space, this is a speaker for you.

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.
