Product Details

Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System, Model COMP5

The Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system is engineered to 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.

Key Features:

  • Proprietary TrueSpace® surround digital processing circuitry
    Reproduces vivid, enveloping sound from just two visible speakers. The system is designed for computer listening, creating a rich acoustic environment for games, DVDs and music.
  • USB simplicity
    System links to your computer through a single USB connection. No special software, sound card upgrade, adaptors or complicated wiring needed.
  • Preassembled speakers/stands
    Speaker arrays come fully assembled on stands for superb performance and more usable desktop space.
  • Compact Acoustimass® module
    Bose® technology delivers clean, deep low frequencies into the room and allows for small, elegant speakers without sacrificing performance. Hideaway module can be hidden almost anywhere in the listening area.
  • Control pod
    Intuitive and convenient, this multi-function pod houses volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and connection for a second audio source such as an MP3 player.

They are excellent speakers. The quality is really superb. However, I noticed that there might be a difference in sound quality in PC and Mac. The speakers sound better with Windows rather than Apple OS. I use them on Windows using Bootcamp and feel that there is a difference in sound quality. Hopefully Bose will fix it.

The problem I've encountered is that they only use the Microsoft Drivers only. If you are capturing audio, it can't be done. It's not capable of outputting "What You Hear" or the System Sounds to a recording device. There should have been a driver by Bose to accomplish this as the connection to the computer is via USB, not a soundcard.

Sweet sounds, expected No Less from Bose

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

I continue to enjoy and own several Bose products (hm theater, Env. Spkr, Wave Sys,, Boom Box, Q15..) and I finally broke down and bought the C5 for my Office. I had a descent setup and those went bad, gave me a good reason to justify these Bose for the work place (DoD). But it seemed to be a lil more then I need as daily computer speakers (Not), I listen to Jazz and Hawaiian music all day and others around have enjoyed the background sounds. Busted out these C5's and I wished I bought these earlier, what was I thinking.. These multimedia speakers exceeded my music experience at work, other have also complimented on how crisp they sound at any level. I looking to remove the stands to mount on the desk corner frame, didn't see any accessory or brackets for this but might customize something to better angle them. Another great choice...!

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

Sadly this is the first Bose product that don't like their sound. I was owner of companion 3 and I loved it, I bought this to replace it after 12 years. The high frequencies are so annoying, lots of ssssssshhhh sounds. I looking for software solution for this equipment but doesn't exist.

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

The sound system goes on sleep mode after 10 or 15 minutes of no use. At that time, can't listen to music using the remote for example (sound on mute), unless you get up and touch that button.its super annoying other than that great!!

Quality pays

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

I've had these 5 years now, they can't be beat! If there's better ones out there I don't need them. Just today like a few times over the past years I've had my back to the speakers and thought someone was behind me, the sound comes right out into the room! It's like it bounces off the walls. Even youtube sounds much better. Came online to see if they something to top this system, but then again why bother!

Not worth

By

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

I have used this product for almost 7 years .Speakers only work good at high volume , and at low volumje the bass is so high thar all other features of music is undermines , buy it for only party purposes not recomended for medium and low volumes, Also with the advancement of windows , now it is even not manageable to change sound setting and choosing windows options to change sound mode like earlier i could have chosen jazz , folk etc. sound modes available , but now we mostly listen online songs directly from browser ( with no equalizer avail. ) ans so windows equaliser is required which does not works high end music systems with windows 8 or 10.

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

I bought this product about a week ago now, it is absolutely outstanding. The bass is incredible, and the sound is just brilliant. All the controls are very easy to use, and the speakers are a very nice design. Setup is very straight forward and simple. I highly recommend this product.

Speaker wires

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

I purchased Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system for my computer which I have a Projector that has a 200" screen. and I cant use the speakers because there is no way to add speaker wire to the speakers. They really should offer adapter speaker wire to increase the distance.

Nearly Great - Except for Auto Mute!!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose Companion Multimedia Speaker System Graphite:

The sound is great - no question. Just one very, very annoying thing - it has a automatic mute feature that is unbelievably annoying - and to a lot of people. Just google it - there are forums of people discussing the annoying automatic mute feature of this model. Basically, the device very quickly - within a just few minutes of not having sound input - goes to sleep - which is basically like mute. If you've got it hooked up via USB, then it'll usually "wake" the speakers once sound starts coming through. BUT - if you use the line-in connection, it DOESN'T AUTOMATICALLY WAKE UP! You have to manually unmute the speakers every single time sound starts to play again. How incredibly annoying. Watch a few online videos - if you don't start the next video soon enough, it'll mute your speakers and you have to manually unmute ("wake up") the speakers. I find myself constantly "unmuting" these things. I'm actually considering throwing these speakers in the trash and replacing them with something that doesn't have such a useless and utterly annoying feature. It's called an "energy saving" feature, but all it does is make daily life with these speakers unnecessarily frustrating. It's really a shame, as the speakers themselves sound better than any other speaks I've had - but what good is the sound quality if you can't hear it?
