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.

beating the test of time

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

the c5s have been out for about 10 years give or take and they are still an incredible system for any desk setup. I have had mine for roughly 4 years now. I am novice audiophile, have many headsets, speakers, DACs and random other devices to compare and connect these to. The bose C5 sound quality is very crisp and the base module is also very nice, hits high bass note very well and can get pretty loud too if u like to bump quite intensely or throughout the entire house/office

L O V E Bose.

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

Made my first Bose purchase in 1990. I bought the Accoustimass stereo speakers. I got so many compliments from people on the sound. I have computer speakers, sound link mini 2 and a Bose radio. (just wish Seattle had music worth listening too) One of the best speaker systems I have ever had. I would love to get them for my car. The sound is as if you are sitting in a private concert performance. LOVE Bose.

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!

Has transformed the way I listen to music

Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

Before I purchased my Companion 5 system, I had always preferred listening with headphones. However, when hearing the full roar of the bass and full surround-sound I have been converted. They sound great and fill up my bedroom very well. I think the price couldn't be more fair for all I have received from them, which I might consider priceless.

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.
