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.

Fantastic and powerful sound, very clear for all type of music. Very happy with this purchase.

What a shame; i thought i could rely on bose products. . I have bought, and still own, other bose products, which have given me no end of faultless listening pleasure, over the years, but the companion 50 multimedia speaker system is a shocker. I am surprised that bose is willing to risk its reputation putting out such a mediocre product. To say that i was surprised at the performance, or rather the lack of it, would be a gross understatement. I was, and still am, shocked at just what a poor performance it delivers, out of the box. Even with the controls properly adjusted, when i first set it up the sound was boxy, the mid-range was dull, the top-end and the base were mia, and the sound-stage was about as big as the box it was delivered in. And to cap it off, the right channel output was only two thirds of the left. Really, just awful, and not worth the shipping cost, never mind the purchase price. I just couldn’t believe it was that bad. There had to be something else wrong.

Good quality but overpriced speakers. These are a reasonable speaker set and have a decent standard of finish but are probably £100 overpriced for the features and performance they provide. They do produce a decent amount of bass for the size of the subwoofer and are good as a pc sound system but are not a room-filling design.

The best a soundfreak can get. By dropping the usb i personally gained less problems and better sound. Well, because i use my soundcard omega lexicon with my computer.

As always, bose do not disappoint in the appearance and sound of this product. I am not sure whether bose would like to hear that i prefer to apply equalisation to personal taste in sound, as i believe that they subscribe to ‘flat’ is best. I own various bose products and have purchased them for their looks and practicality – and of course reliability. However the sound is of course excellent at all volume levels. I am still enjoying bose products that i purchased almost 20 years ago.

Very quick to send a replacement but i am disappointed that it developed a fault so quick. Purchased in 2015 overall these speakers sound fabulias but unfortunately the r/h speaker started to make a crackling soundi phoned bose to be told the speakers were out of warranty & a new r/h speaker would cost me £70 after some deliberation i decided to go ahead & purchase bose were very quick to send a replacement but i am disappointed that it developed a fault so quick.

Fantastic speakers, worth the money. Crystal clear sound; the highs are so clear and the bass is powerful, does not distort at all and in a different league to the lower priced 2. Feels very premium too, the speakers have a bit of weight to them.Although these cost a bit more they will last you a long time.

I ended up returning mine as even though they were better than most pc speakers i’ve heard (better than logitech and harman kardon but not as good as the corsair sp2500 in my opinion) i wanted something with clearer highs. Just a tip for anyone who doesn’t want the speakers to go into sleep mode, keep your finger on the control pod until you hear 2 beeps, high/low switches sleep mode off, low/high switches it back on. For some reason this is not explained in the manual.

Excellent bass sound, volume controller is very good quality and feels really nice to use (feels expensive).

I have never listened to so much music. I wake up excited to turn them on and get home from work excited to turn them right up. They are so loud of the size of them and the sound doesn’t distort even when turned all the way up. The acoustimass module is fantastic and delivers excellent bass. The only thing i can really fault is that the bass does disappear a little when you turn them up full whack. Very solid build quality and no bad points so far, really.
