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.
  • Single USB connection links the system to your computer. No special software, sound card upgrade, adapters or complicated wiring needed.
  • Digital 5.1 audio playback brings music, games, movies and other 5.1-encoded material to life with much of the performance you'd expect from a five-speaker system.

Reviews
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Years of great quality and unmatched performance Like a few reviews I have just seen, I have had this speaker system for years! They still sound wonderful. I never expected to keep them so long because I am known for continuing to upgrade every component of my computer every year. There is just nothing on the market that can match the Companion 5 system for size and sound for a desk. They work every time. They have worked for me with Windows XP to Windows 10, from MAC Leopard and up! Whether I am watching streaming video, playing a game or streaming music...It all sounds great! I am just amazed this system has lasted so well and still sounds amazing. One of the best computer purchases I have ever made and I work in the cyber industry!
