Overview

The best computer speaker system from Bose®.

If you’re looking for the most engaging computer audio experience from Bose®, these are the speakers you want. The Companion® 50 system immerses you in a dramatic acoustic environment you might expect only from a five-speaker system. Yet it all comes from just two elegant desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass® module.

  • Rich, detailed sound with a wide soundstage immerses you in the experience
  • Deep, accurate bass from the Acoustimass® module, which you can hide under a desk
  • All-in-one control pod houses volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input
  • Single connection to your computer — no sound cards or software upgrades needed
  • Energy-saving sleep mode engages after 30 minutes of inactivity

Get more of the experience

More and more, you’re using your computer for all kinds of entertainment. Music. Films and TV programmes. Gaming. But if you’re still using your laptop speakers, or the ones that came with your desktop, you’re not coming close to the audio experience that you should be getting.

The Companion® 50 system provides a welcome change. It uses proprietary TrueSpace® digital processing circuitry to deliver a wide, spacious soundstage, reproducing the original dramatic intent behind the music, films and games you enjoy.

More sound. Less clutter. Easy set-up.

It’s the kind of enveloping sound that you’d expect more from a five-speaker surround system — fine for living rooms but impractical for a computer. The two small, elegant desktop speakers are elevated on stands for optimum performance and extra usable desk space.

Hook-up requires only a single connection from the computer speaker system to your PC or laptop — no special software or hardware upgrade needed. An all-in-one control pod keeps volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input within easy reach. To save energy, the system goes into sleep mode after 30 minutes of inactivity and wakes up when an audio signal is received or the control pod is tapped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerfull & Sophisticated Design. Bought for Bank Holiday wk end to replace Monitor Audio Bookshelf speakers that were damaged and am blown away with the Quality and Sound for there size. Everything oozes beautiful design {yes i'm into speakers}, owned Mission, Kef, TDL, etc but this is first set of Bose. Was put off by price, but for Music on dedicated stands the sound stage and Bass is very impressive. Turn up source ie laptop/phone to 75% volume and use the Bose volume pod, to prevent switching into power saving mode after 30 minutes. Optical input or bluetooth would have been nice but they have concentrated on quality. Very good 9.5 out of 10. well done Bose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sound around Had these for over 5 yrs they are without doubt the best set of speakers Iv ever had. I rigged up a Bluetooth adaptor to the Jack plug. Tip top sound but needs updating with Bluetooth or wifi. Also the volume bezel rubber ring perishes after a few yrs rubber goes sticky not very nice.
