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

    Purchased these over 5 years ago and they still perform as if brand new. When positioned as recommended the sound is absolutely incredible. Just today I checked the Bose web site and looked these up and was not at all surprised that they cost just as much as when I purchased them originally. I highly recommend getting a set of these. I really don't know how they could sound any better for a PC 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.

    Four years and still going strong.

    Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

    I purchased this unit back in 2013 and it has proven to be money well spent. After four years I haven't found a sound system that can approach it, at least not without spending twice as much. The speakers appear small, but they pack a big punch, as does the sub woofer. The connections are simple, and set up is as easy as plugging in the USB cable and turning the unit on. I remain fully satisfied with this system and there are no plans to replace it.

    The Best Money I've Ever Spent!!

    Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

    I purchased this system with my Apple MacBook in April of 2009. Since then, I've used these speakers for outdoor summer jams in my backyard every year, and I've had folks commend me on having the best sound system ever!
    I'm getting my money's worth every time I use it, whether it's on my computer, or on Saturdays while doing my household chores, and cooking my favorite meals, my music never sounded better!

    Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

    I purchased these speakers back in 2008 and they're still going strong. They sound incredible, and not just for computer speakers. I use these speakers on my gaming/media pc and these babies are loud! Music, movies and games all sound incredible on these speakers. I will repurchase when these finally die. I can't recommend these enough!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    By Paul D

    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.

    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.
