Bose Companion 20 Multimedia Speaker System : Remarkable speakers.

Good quality in both sound and design, although be aware of cheaper alternatives. . Purchased these speakers as the brand carries good reputation. Initially seeing the price i found the product to be quite expensive for a pair of small speakers, although like most things you get what you pay for. These speakers are really good, i can see where people are coming from in other reviews where the bass can over power everything else, but this is only on occasional. If you are wanting a set of good quality, sleek and premium feel speakers than these are perfect, as long as you are comfortable with the price. I do believe that if looks dont bother you, then you could most likely find a much better pair of speakers for the same price in terms of sound quality.

Just pure brilliant sound from bose. Iam so glad i have got them. Best speakers i have ever had.

Here are the specifications for the Bose Companion 20 Multimedia Speaker System:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Convenient control pod to adjust or mute volume, connect headphones and add another audio device
  • Sleek, space-saving design complements your computer and eliminates need for dedicated bass module
  • Enjoy full, natural sound at your computer – or across the room – from our best two-piece system
  • Bose TrueSpace technology reproduces wide, natural sound from only two speakers

Having just set up my new study with one of the kids moving out i thought i would treat myself to an upgrade from my old logic 3 screenbeat speakers which though plenty loud enough it was apparent that the resolution of sound and quality of reproduction were no where near up to the newish floorstanding speakers i have in the lounge. Yes another case of one upgrade leading to another. Listening to beethoven’s moonlight sonata, or mozart’s requiem or celine dion just did not have the impact i wanted of feeling as if you’re there listening live. So a quick bit of research lead me to these bose companion 20 speakers and i have to say i am delighted with them, even though they are a bit pricey. You really feel as if you have a top audio system sitting beside your computer – without the space issues or expense. I agree with others that they do have a lot of bass, with is a major achievement for such small speakers. This is very much a matter of personal choice and when i’m alone in the house i’m quite happy with it. However as others have advised you can go into windows media player, right click and reduce the lower frequencies under enhancements/equaliser. As intended i can hear the individual instruments and can imagine i’m actually there at the performance. Well done bose for cramming all this into 2 smallish pc speakers.

Worth the extra money – separates quality in a smalling unit. Definitely glad i bought the higher spec bose. These give a really balanced sound with just the right amount of proper base – i’m just listening to the christine and the queens track on youtube as i write and i can’t fault it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Really love the speakers
  • Replaced my Bose Soundlink with these. Excellent.
  • Excellent product. Very happy with the build and sound

Very happy with the build and sound. Very happy with the build and sound quality. Audiophiles may quibble, but for me they’re great. I would have no reservations in recommending these speakers. Bose companion 20 multimedia speaker system for computers, tablets and audio devices – grey.

Excellent quality all round. . Brilliant sound from very attractive small speakers. I bought these on recomendation for my smart tv and the sound quality improvement is amazing. They are not obtrusive and don’t ‘take over’ a viewing area yet are so much better than the built in tv units.

Great speaker – great design -. Great speakers very easy to use – a bit pricey but go for it if you can afford it – best for laptop apparently.

Replaced my bose soundlink with these. I love my soundlink ii, except for the limited stereo separation (to be expected from a small unit). I replaced it with these and the difference was immediately clear. Lovely crisp sounds, nice bit of base, and a great stereo image.

Enjoying listening to music whilst working at. Enjoying listening to music whilst working at the computer again. My old creative labs system (4 satellite speakers plus sub) failed a few months ago (it was 20 yrs old) and i opted for a mid-range creative labs t-10 inspire pair of speakers as a replacement. Sound ok at very low volumes but horribly distorted at anything above minimum volume and just quite flat sounding. The difference is amazing, sometimes you do get what you pay for and this is one of those instances. The control pod is really useful as i don’t have to reach over through to the back of my desk to get to the volume and on/off.

Really love the speakers, almost sounds as if you have a sub when you turn these on. The bass is great and volume control device is very useful as well. Have recommended these to friends.

But i do appreciate the difference a good set of speakers can make. I wouldn’t exactly classify myself as an audiophile (as in i won’t take out a small mortgage to buy speakers), but i do appreciate the difference a good set of speakers can make. I’ve previously had a creative 2. 1 setup (which had to go when i downsized my desk), followed by an aego 2. Both were highly rated in their day, but i honestly wasn’t prepared for the difference bose makes. I’ve had the companion 20s for about 2 weeks now, and i’m still blown away by them. They’re more than capable of filling a good sized room, but up close and personal they really shine. Sound stage is incredible – wide and clearly defined. You’ll easily be able to pinpoint instruments and sound is will defined, with excellent mids. For games and films, you really will feel like you’re in the thick of it (especially if you couple them with a good soundcard with virtual dolby). Bass is good – arguably on the punchy side for some, but you definitely won’t find yourself missing a sub. For sound, looks and build quality, i’d comfortably give them 5*. However, i do have a few niggles. With 4 cables coming out of the right hand speaker, it can take a bit of work to tame the wiring.

Outstanding product, after doing the diligence i bought this product but proof is in the listening. Amazing sound quality for music and voice. I’ve listened to the chemical brothers, white snake & bocelli. I used facetime to work and watched now tv all different and all now with impressive sound quality. Worth the money and very easy to set up.

As you’d expect, these speakers produce excellent sound quality. I use them to get excellent sound from my tv (you plug them into the tv’s earphone port). I also plug them into my iphone to play apple music (or spotify). One very slight caveat: for my ear the base, sometimes, can be too ‘booming ‘. This is noticeable on some live tv programmes where obviously the sound balance isn’t up to recording studio standards.

A good rich sound with oodles of bass delivers some presence from the pc output. I like the control module, which lays flat, & sits still, on the desk & can be operated by one finger tip for on/off & finger & thumb for volume. However still to decide that they are worth 12 times the cost of the still working logitech x-120 they replace.

Great sound and i love being able to turn it. Great sound and i love being able to turn it off next to me and not stretch to the back of the desk to control them.

These sound great – 100% better than my old pc speakers. I can enjoy listening to music on my pc with rich sound and good bass now. A little pricey, but worth it if you like to listen to music or watch video on your pc. I tried a cheaper model in a shop (bose companion 2) and they didn’t sound half as good. These are a little bigger than cheaper pc speakers, so check the measurements are ok for your space. The desktop mute / volume control pod is neat and satisfying to use.
