Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System

 

Bose's Companion 5 speakers are great for those who want more from their DVD audio but lack the space for a true surround-sound setup.

The subwoofer delivers nice rumble. Speakers widen the stereo image. Great for desktop or home listening. Wired control has volume and mute button.

"Surround-like" is NOT real surround sound. The satellites are lacking in the mid-high frequencies. Control is wired.

Bose's Companion 5 speakers are great for those who want more from their DVD audio but lack the space for a true surround-sound setup.

With the Bose Companion 5, audiophiles can now hear the highs, mids and lows in extreme clarity and detail.

Bose Companion 5

 

Although expensive, this three-piece speaker system is one of the more distinct-looking and attractively designed PC speaker packages we've seen -- and it sounds pretty good, too.

Bose's high end multimedia speakers look as though they belong on the set of Star Trek, but how do they sound?

Bose Companion 5

 

Bose is not a brand you traditionally associate with computers, but the high-end hi-fi specialist is now targeting PC users who want an aesthetically pleasing product that offers superior sound quality. The Companion 5 is a 2.1-channel speaker setup,...

Connection to the PC is made via a USB cable, meaning that the few enthusiasts with designated sound cards might struggle to get full use of the system. There is also an analogue connection for use with external devices. The control pod does not have a...

BOSE Companion 5

 

The sound experience here is undoubtedly one of the best and it saves you the hassles of buying a high quality sound card. But is it a worthy companion?

Crisp and Immersive Sound, Good Bass, Control Pod, USB Connector, Inbuilt sound processing

Play in the Volume, Bass goes flat after 70-75% of system volume, Expensive

Bose Companion 5

 

Although expensive, this three-piece speaker system is one of the more distinct-looking and attractively designed PC speaker packages we've seen -- and it sounds pretty good, too.

The AU$599 system is designed for use with both PC and Macs, though for best performance, Bose recommends Windows XP or later for PC users and OS X 10.4.6 or later for Mac users. Previous Bose PC speakers -- the Companion 2 and Companion 3 -- will...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not a great product IMO.

 

This was my first purchase of a Bose product to replace my old Logitech speakers that lasted years. I was quite surprised that there is no way to connect these speakers to my audio output jacks or adjust the sound quality and effects with my computers...

Nice looking and decent sound

Not able to connect to audio output jacks or sound cards. No software to adjust sound effects or quality.
