Product Information

Bose® Companion® multimedia speaker systems bring your music, games and videos to life. The Companion 5 multimedia speaker system is the best computer speaker system from Bose. It delivers sound you might expect from a 5.1 speaker system, from just two speakers and an Acoustimass® module. Its convenient control pod houses volume/mute control and includes an aux input for a second audio source, such as an MP3 player. You can easily connect it to your computer through a single USB port.

The Companion 20 multimedia speaker system lets you enjoy full, natural sound from just two speakers – whether you are sitting in front of your computer or listening from across the room. It’s easy to connect to your desktop or laptop computer, or tablet. And the unique control pod makes it easy to adjust or mute the volume and connect headphones or other audio devices.

The two-speaker Companion 2 Series II multimedia speaker system gives you an improved sound performance over conventional computer speakers. Dual inputs make it easy to connect to your desktop or laptop computer, or tablet, and an additional audio source, such as an MP3 player.

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 Bose 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

Bose's 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.


  • Specially engineered speaker arrays come fully assembled on stands for optimum performance and more usable desktop space.
  • Handy control pod houses volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and connection for a second audio source such as an MP3 player.
  • Compact Acoustimass module provides clean low frequencies, allowing the desktop speakers to be very small without sacrificing performance. Module can be hidden neatly under your desk.
  • 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.
  • Magnetically shielded satellite speakers prevent monitor interference or damage to magnetic media.
  • Proprietary integrated signal processing delivers lifelike performance at almost any volume level.
  • Compression circuitry keeps your music clear and undistorted at high volume levels.
  • Active electronic equalization balances low, mid and high frequencies for more natural tone and clarity.

Quality pays
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!

No Regret!
The first time I encountered Bose speaker was when my friend introduce me with his Companion 3 speaker, and it sounds outstanding, from that time I decided to purchase Bose speaker for myself. Based on my friend recommendation, I bought the Companion 5. After using this speaker for almost 2 years, I use it mostly for gaming (on PC and PS3) and also watching movie on weekends. I could say that it really life up to its purpose, to deliver amazing experience for gaming and movie watching. I also appreciate the simulated surround sound technology, although it's not as real as having 5.1 surround sound speaker, I could assure you that the simulation is surprisingly good, it felt like as if I have two more speaker behind me. In short, if you're looking for deep immersive sound experience for gaming and movie in your PC/laptop, but you have limited space, this is a speaker for you.

Absolutely Amazing
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.

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....

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!

Simply the best
I don't know why it took me so long to look at Bose for my computer speakers - I have Bose products throughout my house. But I can tell you, these are the best small computer/audio speakers I've ever experienced. The only downside? I had to buy to more pair for my kids, who were hopelessly jealous.

The best speakers i've EVER had
I've had these for nearly 10 years now and they have never disappointed me in performance or sound quality. The size of them is is deceptive but my goodness, what a punch for the money. I've not particularly looked after mine in comparison to most Bose users. Been used and abused and still going strong! One of the speakers even had red wine spilled on it last weekend......still working. I'll never want to replace these.

How to get sound out of Sony Bravia KDL-46V5100 w Bose Companion 5 speakers?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2017
  This system is designed for use with a computer and only connects via USB. To my knowledge, there is no easy way to connect this to a TV.

There is a 3.5mm (standard aux) jack in the control module (the puck shaped device) that would enable you to attach anything via an aux cord. However, system setup and control is designed to be used with a computer.
