Bose Companion 2 Series II (graphite)


Bose makes a few computer speaker packages, the least expensive of which is the Companion 2 Series II at $100. The package includes two compact speakers measuring 7.5 by 3.2 by 5.8 inches; both are angled slightly upward so the sound is aimed toward...

Headphone jack and volume control on front of right speaker; dual stereo inputs; respectable bass for a 2.0 desktop speaker; attractive design; most affordable Bose PC speakers.

Sound isn't as good as other computer speakers in this price class.

Bose's entry-level Companion 2 Series II speakers offer good bass and dual inputs--but they're not the best-sounding PC speakers in their price class.

These speakers have great overall sound

Bose Companion 2 Multimedia Speaker System


Fantastic and affordable Bose 2.0 speakers.

Excellent sound, great price for a Bose product

Treble not nearly as fantastic as bass

The Bose Companion 2 Multimedia Speaker System delivers a full and rich audio experience, even for a 2.0 speaker system. Using their proprietary technology and design, Bose gives a great set of computer speakers that are much better than the average...

Bose Companion 20


This 2.0 speaker setup is one of the first Bose products we've seen that actually lives up to its billing.

Powerful, bassy sound, Convenient wired remote, Stylish design

Quite expensive, Possibly a bit too bassy, No bass/treble control

Quality Speakers at a Resonable Price : Bose Companion 2 Series III & Creative T15 Wireless


Here I am looking at two sets of small speakers, the first from Creative are a wired Bluetooth unit that is similar in size and shape to the second from Bose, a name I associate with high end audio but here at a cheaper price.

These are 20x15x8.5cm the total weight is just over 2kilos. The left speaker has a hard wired 1.4metre lead coming from the rear to connect to the right speaker. The right speaker has a tone knob, a Bluetooth button and an on/off volume knob in a...

Sleek design, Compact and portable, works on almost any device, brings out new sounds and exciting features in music that you may never hear on an average speaker. Great price, and an awesome warranty.

Bose Companion 20: magical and great for travel!


Over the last 25 years, I have enjoyed some of the finest stereo equipment in the world. I've looked for a simple, no hassle system I can take with me on vacations and am happy to say, I've found it in the Bose Companion 20. Will it perform ... Expand...

Very natural, organic sounding system, full of detail and crisp sounding, yet smooth and non-fatiguing to listen to. You can get plenty of volume too. Base is strong, clean and blends in well. Base freaks might be happier with a subwoofer but try hauli

I wish the drivers (cones) were higher, at ear level for even more detail. I can just jack the speakers up though. The price? Not a con; you get everything you pay for here

Bose Companion 20: Nice and Simple


If you cannot afford a pair of Bowers & Wilkins, get this as a second choice.

Considering it a 2.0 set, very detail sound quality even at lowest or highest volume level. Superb mid and base

Surprisingly treble is a bit weak

These sleek and compact speakers fit easily in their surroundings to save useful desk space. Dual inputs make it a snap to connect your computer and portable audio sources at the same time. Both volume and the headphone jack reside on the front of one speaker to provide easy control over your listening experience. Odds are, your computer is a primary source of entertainment.

And with Bose TrueSpace stereo signal processing, that voice really has some reach. Experience a spacious, dramatic soundstage that seems to extend beyond the desktop speakers - whether you've set them next to your monitor or placed them farther apart. You'll also appreciate the clear, robust response for those challenging low musical notes and sound effects. Companion 2 speakers bring more than new flair to your desktop. They're also designed for convenience, with both the volume control and headphone jack close at hand. All so controlling your listening experience is as simple as you'd like it to be.
