5.0 out of 5 stars Bose Companion 5 Feb. 7 2013
By Dave
After purchasing and experiencing the Bose Companion 20 computer speaker system (2.0), I thought Bose hit the nail on the head.
Crisp, clear and accurate sounds...sounds that I have never heard with other computer speaker systems. But, this system could not provide the bass signal that I knew should be reproduced. I returned this sweet system and purchased the Companion 5 system.
Game...set...match (for tennis pundits). In other words, Bose has claimed and produced, in my humble opinion, the top computer 2.1 speaker status.
If you want a mind blower sound system (loud but innacurate), stay away. This is not a home stereo system speaker system, per se.
This is a well-researched and developed sound system that accurately delivers the ORIGINAL signal, if that's what you want.
Kudos to Bose and thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Engineered Product Sept. 27 2013
Verified Purchase
This product is phenomenal. The build quality of the system alone is a marvel in a world of designed obsolescence. The sound quality is flawless at low to moderate volumes, although at high volumes you will be slightly disappointed. The system makes you feel like your listening to 5.1 surround. With all of this said, I still think the price is ridiculously high.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love how this speaker system saves space May 6 2014
Verified Purchase
I searched for compact speakers with good sound quality. One of my computer space is super limited so I had to get a set of speakers that would fit in between desk and monitor gap. That is why I bought this Bose Companion 5.
I love Bose's Earphones for noise canceling but their speakers seem way too pricey for what they can produce.
Anyways, I bought Bose Companion 5, and when I opened the box, I was impressed. Overall quality of speakers were very good. Way too good for me though, I wanted to get rid of the stand on speakers, but it was permanently attached to speakers.
So I had to grab some tools to rip out the back of stand's shaft. It was super glued to the stand.
After removing the stand, it fit perfectly in between the desk and the monitor.

Sound quality was okay, but not A+.
Mid were lacking from satellite speakers (Maybe I am used to my high-end monitor speakers).
However, the woofer provided surprisingly good lows, and if you listen to the system, it sounds good.
The woofer had very tight, controlled lows.
I did not expect Bose to sound superb. I just wanted them for compact size that would fit my limited space.
Considering how tiny the satellite speakers are, they produce very good sound. Expecting superb mid/lows from them are like asking Chihuahua to bark like Rottweiler.
Overall, the sound quality from this system is A.

Bose Companion 5's main input is USB, but I did not even connect the USB cable to the system.
Instead, there is Line-In input on the controller. I connected 3.5mm cable from my PC to Companion 5.
Here is the catch. If you want to use Line-In only, DO NOT CONNECT USB to PC.
The speakers will produce super dirty white noise if both USB and Line-In are connected.
