Excellent but could be great with a software equalizer program.

  • Summary: These are excellent speakers but they do have a few drawbacks. The volume puck has no indication of the current volume level, and (as always with Bose products) the ultra high frequency response is way too loud for me. The volume adjustment is a little too sensitive as well, so be careful with it.

Powerfull System

  • Excerpt: Brilliant sound at all levels. Powerful 2.1 channel speakers that have good eye appeal. The "Control Pod" which looks a lot like a hockey puck is easy and convenient to use within arm's range to adjust the volume of you favorite tune. Mixer software would be a plus in order to adjust the treble.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Lack Of Mixer Software, Mixer

annoying

  • Summary: Had these speakers for about a month now and i have to keep unplugging them and replugging them every time i start up windows to get them to play sound. Its really annoying. Still a worth while buy, sound quality is way better than my old 5.1 setup.

Pretty good, but some flaws

  • Excerpt: This system is plugged into a top-of-the-line Dell XPS 730x. It's got a good sound, so there are no complaints about the quality. The things that cause you to scratch your head and wonder are: (1) the main box is rectangular, about 18 inches long. The bass control is on the back of the box.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality

Fantastic sound, but at a cost.

  • Summary: Until a few years ago, I used nothing but the cheapest speakers and headphones I could fine. Bargain-bin all the way until I picked up a pair of high-end Sennheiser headphones and I finally "heard the difference" - since then I've gotten picky and have only wanted the best.

  • Summary: THESE ARE VERY GOOD SPEAKERS,WAY OVERPRICED CONSIDERING THAT THEY ARE MADE IN CHINA. IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT FOR $399 YOU COULDN'T PAY AMERICANS TO MAKE THEM, AND STILL MAKE A PROFIT

Oustanding speakers, but...

J. Lawson, Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: The Bose Companion 5 speakers have the best sound I have heard on any set of computer speakers. The glowing praises given by many of the other reviewers are right on target. I do listen to most of my music through these speakers, which are connected to my one year old Alienware computer.
