Bose Companion 50 - Their best computer speaker system

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® bass module.

  • Rich, detailed sound with a wide soundstage immerses you in the experience
  • Deep, accurate bass from the Acoustimass module 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

These days more and more of us are using computers to enjoy all kinds of entertainment including music, movies, TV shows and games 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 you should be getting.

The Bose 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, movies and games you enjoy.

More sound. Less clutter. Easy setup.

It's the kind of enveloping sound 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.

Set up requires only a single connection from the Companion 50 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.

Ordered online at £30.00 below Amazon price, the speakers were delivered (free delivery) on time and without problems. Information on delivery was clear after some help from Weybridge Audio, no problems at all. The speakers were very well wrapped and protected. The speakers are very well made and good looking though of course the bass unit is mainly hidden below the desk.
They were connected to my PC without any trouble, the procedure is very easy and well explained.
Once the bass and volume were adjusted to my liking I listened carefully to the sound. They are not 'mellow' like so many are but give clear and well defined sound, for example a trumpet sounds like a trumpet. Choir music is clear, well defined and enjoyable. The bass is tight and clear and when demanded deep. The sound stereo stage is very good.
After quite a time listening to music, I tried it on a game. I picked Rome 2, one of my favourites. The sound again was very good, with individual sounds being clear and well defined. The game is of Roman armies versus various enemies and close up the sound of marching boots, soldier chatter, multi battle noises etc. was far superior to my previous sound set-up, which at the time I thought to be pretty good.
The controller that sits on the desk is very convenient. My only wish is that Bose might have fitted the desk controller with a bass control, this control is at the back of the bass box which, being under the desk, is somewhat more difficult to adjust. However, once adjusted it is ok, though adjustments might be needed for different sound circumstances.
Overall a very good decision by me to obtain the sound system.
