Bose Companion 2


The Bose Companion 2 Series III are great sounding speakers and they are the cheapest speakers from the fantastic Companion series. They don't boast any type of wireless connectivity but you will be ecstatic about the sound quality from these laptop...

These speakers have great overall sound

These speakers don't have wireless capabilities

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...

Awesome Sound from Small Footprint!


If you are looking for a small set of speakers with big sound, and want to avoid buying a system that depends on a subwoofer the size of a small refrigerator, you will really like these speakers. I wanted to avoid a 2+1 system or a two-speaker system...

Lots of Bass. Detailed and balanced sound. Small Footprint

Line-in cord is too short. Should be at least 6

Theyre OK


I purchased these to replace a 5.1 system with a ton of wires, because i was sick of routing all the wires. I knew going into it, they wouldn't be as good... but i certainly expected better. I ended up returning the speakers.

They're OK for a 2.0 setup ... the mids are alright ... lows are terrible

With the Bose name, i honestly expected much better. The bass is almost non existent ; For the price, I'm not very happy with it

Excellent Sound Quality


Excellent sound quality, crisp, nuanced and accurate. A pleasure to use across all kinds of material

A little big, but this is a very minor nit

Not So Great


While the higher frequencies played with good clarity, for a Bose speaker system, I found the bass response to be substandard. After 2 days, left speaker went out. After 2 weeks, right speaker went out. As a 20 year Bose fan, I am not pleased with this...


Substandard bass repsonse. Lack of power indicator. Faulty

Cheap Bose Speaker


I should buy a better Bose speaker.

It looks nice and small

I use it for my home theater projector, but sound too small. It sounds just the same as some $50 PC speakers. The cable is too short for projector

Rocking lil speakers


the primary wire that connects from the speaker to your audio jack is short. I ended up having rearrange my setup a but and put the right speaker on the left side of my television and the left speaker on the right side to make the wires fit without...

Price !! Bose brand ; They work great, are small, sleek, and produce more than enough sound to make splinter cell totally insane

the software does not have an option to select speakers individually and say ok this is the right speaker this is the left speaker

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.

Companion 2 speakers deliver both the subtleties in your music and the rousing resonance of movie and game sound effects. Think of them as giving new voice to your computer. 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.
