Oh my god it’s like being in a nightclub but better. I recently received this product having loved bose products for the last 20 odd years. This product does not disappoint. I am waiting for my new pc and had a problem with my tv and i have used my old 27′ lg monitor as a stand in while the main tv is being repaired. The only nightmare was the sound. Now last night i was watching mtv with these speakers attached to my old monitor and the sound quality was up there with my lg £500 surround sound system (attached to my 3d lg tv in the other room) in terms of volume but the mid range was a little bit week because of the monitor. But the base and high end sound was amazing. This morning my wireworld pulse 3. 5 jack cable arrived and i replaced the stock wire that came with these speakers and oh my god, the difference is amazing.
I still love this speaker set 2 years on. The bose acoustimass system adds depth and warmth to the, often acoustic & classical, music that i listen to. Sure, the sound feels slightly ‘processed’ and i’ve heard the argument that it’s ‘bose fidelity’ rather than an accurate representation of what’s on the disc. I feel the sound reproduction is more accurate from the b&w mm1 computer speakers but i’ve found them only marginally better while the bose system is available for around £90 less in many online stores. I would recommend companion 5 speakers to anybody who wants a turbocharged sound from their pc or mac.

Bose really is worth the money. . For years i thought bose was nothing more than overpriced and a fashion statement but how wrong i was. I bought this after being very impressed in the bose shop and i’m even more impressed using it at home. This thing makes music, movies and game sound fantastic. Playing rainbow six siege, every explosion has a fantastic punch. When playing pillars of eternity the orchestrated music sounds rich and vivid. If you’re looking for fantastic sound in a compact and single unit then look no further.
Almost perfect, but that hiss is really annoying. . I normally need to adjust bass or treble response with new speakers but these were just perfect. When there’s no sound there’s a very slight hiss. I normally only notice it when it’s late at night, office is quiet (no a/c, spinning disks, pc fans etc). I’ve tried several different cable routes, just to check it’s not a shielding issue, but i can’t get rid of it. As i said it’s only a slight noise and if this was a £50 or even £150 speaker system i wouldn’t mark it down but at £300 i expect silence when nothing is playing. Overall a very nice product which brings your music to life.
I dont usually write reviews but i have had the companion 5’s for a good couple of months now (bought second hand for £200), and feel like i need to tell everyone how fantastic they are. I have used them in a small uni bedroom, large bedroom and very large lounge and i have to say every time i have moved them they have sounded better. I was blown away the first time i fired them up in a small room, and amazed at the performance in a larger room. I was skeptical before purchase after encountering the floods of bose bashers, but being a mac user i figured it was a similar battle so i went for it. You do get what you pay for i can tell you. Build quality – outstanding. Music – fantastic, and i use these everyday. Without fail, rich, dynamic and wonderfully balanced, my only gripe is that the the left and right (mid – highs) can break out above the sub when very loud, although i have found over usb from my macbook the speakers adjust to the input and balance themselves.(providing you set the computer output to max and leave it) movies – incredible, with enough power to comfortably fill a large lounge (15m x 6m), large soundstage and lovely accurate bass.
Bose Companion 50 Multimedia Speaker System – Black : It felt like i was having a form of brain washing torture…. After about 10 years of a my current pc surround sound 5. 1 with subwoofer that worked on a standard 2 channel audio setup, they developed a constant feedback hum / buzz mainly when they were not in use, it felt like i was having a form of brain washing torture…. My head hurtso the dilemma stick with the buzz or spend large?anyhow after much deliberation and contemplating the pointlessness of spending a serious amount of money on pc audio……. I bit the bullet and bought myself the dogs danglies of pc audio…… “bose companion 50”, they arrived the other day, and wow, wow, wowi’ve listen to everything over the last few days from led zeppelin, michael jackson to hard house………the sound is outstanding, the clarity is awesome these albums from the 1970’s sound fantastic the stereo production used back then is brilliant, these speakers have added a totally new dimension to my pc audio listening…. Luv thembose have always been my speakers of choice, bought my first bose 301 series 2, in 1990 and they still sound fabulous today 25 years on.
