Bose® Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System, Series 2

Product information

Bose’s premium Companion 5 is a three-piece computer sound system which delivers multichannel sound that will seem to surround you - without the clutter of five speakers. The system is designed for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two elegant desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module. Set up is also easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.

Many of your favourite games and movies will be set up for 5.1 sound, though getting five-speakers next to your laptop or PC is not practical, so you have been missing out. Not any longer. Bose’s exclusive TrueSpace surround digital processing circuitry spreads the sound around you, so the enveloping effects seem to come from areas where there aren't even any speakers. The experience is developed especially for computer listening - putting you right in the middle of the music, the game and the special effects.

Set up is incredibly straightforward too. A single USB connection from the computer speaker system to your PC or laptop is all that is needed - no special software, hardware or sound card upgrade is required. A handy, all-in-one control pod keeps volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input within easy reach.

The small, elegant desktop computer speakers come mounted on stands for optimum performance and extra desktop space.

Q & As

Bose® Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System, Series 2 4.6 5 11 11
Unbelievable Don't listen to the three star review! These speakers are outstanding, low pitch mid pitch and high pitch! Top quality! You can adjust the base with the little knob on the back of the sub-woofer. The control pod is great! with an headphone jack (3.5 mm included) You can play your phone through the aux jack by using an additional 3.5 mm aux cable (auxiliary) With the output of 700 watts (660 more than an average computer speaker you will not be disappointed. By all means you might aswell go the extra £50 for the companion 5 which, luckilly I did. You can play these speakers through anything, your t.v the lot. Well worth the money. Great buy! 10 March 2013
Over priced and no midrange Totally over priced for what they are. But even more disappointing was the lack of midrange. I've heard far better from cheaper speakers, try listening to the Harman Kardon. Another annoying feature is the pause on the puck, when ever you leave the system for a while you have to press the puck before you can carry on listening to your music. Perhaps they are better for gaming, certainly not for music!! On the plus side, they are pleasing on the eye 14 January 2013
pretty good, but probably better to go for the series 1 I returned these having found that the long length of the support struts and the larger size of the speakers (vs the series 1) meant that the speakers actually obscured the picture on my TV I also expected the new USB socket of the series 2 to enable you to plug-in an iPhone or iPad charging cable to play music or charge the device - this doesn't work the USB socket only works on a laptop PC or Mac my advice is to save money and bad series 1 if you still can I have noticed any difference in sound quality either 29 July 2012
What they said... Just echoing what everyone else above says. This is a neat and tidy system which is a snip to set up. The sound packs more punch than should be possible with speakers this tiny. The Acoustimas module is also unobtrusive and, again, the sound delivered doesn't seem possible from something this small. If you're serious about listening to music and/or watching movies through your computer, this is the system for you 19 July 2012
Great item great price Great sound easy set up. Collection through John Lewis easy 23 June 2012
Bose® Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System, Series 2 Absolutely stunning sound.Worth every penny.The Best. 20 April 2012
Fantastic Sound This is one of the very best sound systems I have ever heard. Yes, it's not cheap, but you really get what you pay for and has transformed my i-tunes library on my laptop into something special. 21 March 2012
Amazing sound I previously owned a surround sound system complete with 5 speakers and a sub-woofer - wires everywhere! Decided to reduce the clutter and purchased the Bose 5 System. The difference in quality of sound is staggering and from only two speakers and a sub-woofer. Highly recommended 07 March 2012
