Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system

For a limited time


Theater-like sound for your desktop

Five-speaker systems are great for home theater—but they’re not so sensible for your laptop or PC entertainment. That’s why we developed Companion® 5 speakers. They’re designed for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module . You’ll hear multichannel sound in a way that seems to surround you—without the clutter of five speakers. And setup is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.

  • Our best computer speakers for 5.1-encoded games, movies and music
  • Two small computer speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass® module
  • Control pod for volume, mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input

Our 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, the special effects.

Easy to set up and use

Hookup requires only a single USB connection from the computer speaker system to your PC or laptop. An all-in-one control pod keeps volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input within easy reach. The elegant speakers come mounted on stands for optimum performance and extra desktop space.

Get more from your music. Get more into the game or movie. Whatever your computer entertainment passion, get more engaged with Bose® Companion 5 multimedia speakers.

  • Proprietary TrueSpace® surround digital processing circuitry reproduces enveloping sound from just two visible speakers. Engineered for computer speaker listening, it creates a dramatic acoustic environment for games, DVDs and music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb sounding system! When I first heard the Bose Companion 5 sound displayed to me - full volume, I insisted - I could not wait to purchase it and get it back home. I use this tidy little system through my I-Pad in a room of 5x5 meters square. Placed in the center against one of he walls the quality and clarity of sounds from music, films or gaming doesn't drop wherever I'm placed. The set-up is so simple. The volume control device I particularly like, as it can be placed anywhere upon my desk. I've had it over 2 years now. And I'll keep it for as long as it lasts, regardless of any other similar systems. Recommending you purchase this system is a no-brainer!! Enjoy....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy. This is my first review of any product ever. I bought this set of speakers for a PC in 2007 and have been using them every day since. I use the speakers for music, movies and gaming. I have used these speakers in a pinch for the TV when my receiver was in for repairs. i have used these speakers for party music with an mp3 player. The sound is always great very crisp highs perfectly balanced with mids and un-distorted lows. I would not hesitate to buy this exact pair again if these ever decide to quit. It is hard to find a company with such high integrity as bose. If you are undecided about this product, please buy it. you can thank me later.
