Bose Companion 5 ... deliver the excitement of surround sound content right at your computer - without the clutter of five speakers. Just two small speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module deliver much of the audio performance you'd expect from a five-speaker surround sound system. And a single USB connection is all it takes - no special software, hardware or sound card upgrade necessary.
Five-speaker systems are great for your living room or home-theater room. Maybe not for the office, bedroom or dorm room, where your computer lives. Yet, without a way to fully appreciate those breathtaking 5.1 game and movie soundtracks, you're missing much of the fun.
Now you can enjoy an enveloping sound experience without enveloping yourself in hardware. The proprietary TrueSpace surround digital processing circuitry enables two elegant desktop speakers and a compact module to put you in the middle of the action.
The soundstage seems to envelop you. And the experience is developed especially for computer listening, so your computer is right in the middle of the music, the game, the special effects.
The Companion 5 system features a handy, all-in-one control pod to keep speaker volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and an auxiliary input all within easy reach. Speakers are mounted on stands enabling superb performance and more usable desktop space.

I debated for a long time whether to purchase the companion 3 or 5 speakers, as it was a £50 price difference and from what I could see all you got was a USB connection and a claim the companion 5s can reproduce 5.1 surround sound. I eventually gave in to the companion 5s and I was not disappointed! My friend had recently purchased the companion 3s so I knew I was in for a good sound experience regardless of the surround sound capabilities. The base notes on the companion 5s are very powerful whilst the mid range and high notes are unbelievably clear. I played a movie almost the moment they were out of the box to check whether there really was a surround sound ... Read the complete review

I swear I will never buy any other make ever again! What a fantastic product! I have been a Bose fan for years, but when I got married I had a job convincing my husband, who wanted to buy another massive ugly player, for half the price. However, making him fork out £300 for it was worth the effort - 1000% As usual, most people think, bigger the better. Well, it's not true in all cases.. and especially not true with Bose. Most music is now played through comptuers anyway - esp with Spotify making such a big bang. We barely use our CDs, and even if we do, they are playable on my comptuer. So, I dont miss having a separate sound system that plays my CDs ... Read the complete review

Wow wow WOW these speakers are good!! I had limped along with the Cambridge Labs 5.1 surround sound speaker system that came with my computer for a number of years but struggled to get all the speakers working at the same time, wasn't impressed with the sound quality and didn't like having wires for 5 speakers laying all round the room. I wanted a decent 2.1 speaker system for use with my computer, which sounded great and didn't take up too much space. I have heard nothing but praise for Bose products and these Companion 5 speakers ticked all the right boxes although at £300 on Amazon were quite a bit more than I expected to pay. A bit of birthday money a few saved up ... Read the complete review

The Bose Companion 5 set of speakers really are great and are an excellent addition to any computer setup! I bought these Bose speakers having been recommended by a friend to go alongside my macbook pro. They really have been nothing short of superb and I would really recommend them to anyone looking for a quality set of speakers. In terms of design and aesthetics I found the sleek and streamline design to be really attractive on a desk and it really does blend in well to most office spaces. They also really look great alongside any mac computer and so in terms of aesthetics and design I would really recommend these speakers. The speakers are not too big which ...

I was generally looking around at speakers for a number of areas of the house. The guy in the electricals shop asked if I'd looked at the Bose speakers. I laughed. I know that Bose makes extremely good quality speakers, but they usually come with an extremely tasty price tag, too ! These speakers are hardly cheap, but for what you get I think they represent great value. Quite simply you will not beat the quality of sound.... end of story. Tones are rich and full and the speakers will reach enough volume to have your neighbours calling the local police station before you'll notice any distortion. With this set you get the sub ...
