Excellent Speakers (PC & MAC Comparison)

By fabianshc

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

They are excellent speakers. The quality is really superb. However, I noticed that there might be a difference in sound quality in PC and Mac. The speakers sound better with Windows rather than Apple OS. I use them on Windows using Bootcamp and feel that there is a difference in sound quality. Hopefully Bose will fix it.

Sweet sounds, expected No Less from Bose

By RikCaz

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I continue to enjoy and own several Bose products (hm theater, Env. Spkr, Wave Sys,, Boom Box, Q15..) and I finally broke down and bought the C5 for my Office. I had a descent setup and those went bad, gave me a good reason to justify these Bose for the work place (DoD). But it seemed to be a lil more then I need as daily computer speakers (Not), I listen to Jazz and Hawaiian music all day and others around have enjoyed the background sounds. Busted out these C5's and I wished I bought these earlier, what was I thinking.. These multimedia speakers exceeded my music experience at work, other have also complimented on how crisp they sound at any level. I looking to remove the stands to mount on the desk corner frame, didn't see any accessory or brackets for this but might customize something to better angle them. Another great choice...!

this is good

By chew

Comments about Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

The sound system goes on sleep mode after 10 or 15 minutes of no use. At that time, can't listen to music using the remote for example (sound on mute), unless you get up and touch that button.its super annoying other than that great!!

Quality pays

By Big Mike

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I've had these 5 years now, they can't be beat! If there's better ones out there I don't need them. Just today like a few times over the past years I've had my back to the speakers and thought someone was behind me, the sound comes right out into the room! It's like it bounces off the walls. Even youtube sounds much better. Came online to see if they something to top this system, but then again why bother!

Not worth

By Abhinav

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I have used this product for almost 7 years .Speakers only work good at high volume , and at low volumje the bass is so high thar all other features of music is undermines , buy it for only party purposes not recomended for medium and low volumes, Also with the advancement of windows , now it is even not manageable to change sound setting and choosing windows options to change sound mode like earlier i could have chosen jazz , folk etc. sound modes available , but now we mostly listen online songs directly from browser ( with no equalizer avail. ) ans so windows equaliser is required which does not works high end music systems with windows 8 or 10.

I bought this product about a week ago now, it is absolutely outstanding. The bass is incredible, and the sound is just brilliant. All the controls are very easy to use, and the speakers are a very nice design. Setup is very straight forward and simple. I highly recommend this product.

Speaker wires

By ErnieSlatton

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

I purchased Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system for my computer which I have a Projector that has a 200" screen. and I cant use the speakers because there is no way to add speaker wire to the speakers. They really should offer adapter speaker wire to increase the distance.

Nearly Great - Except for Auto Mute!!

By Frustrated in NYC

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

The sound is great - no question. Just one very, very annoying thing - it has a automatic mute feature that is unbelievably annoying - and to a lot of people. Just google it - there are forums of people discussing the annoying automatic mute feature of this model. Basically, the device very quickly - within a just few minutes of not having sound input - goes to sleep - which is basically like mute. If you've got it hooked up via USB, then it'll usually "wake" the speakers once sound starts coming through. BUT - if you use the line-in connection, it DOESN'T AUTOMATICALLY WAKE UP! You have to manually unmute the speakers every single time sound starts to play again. How incredibly annoying. Watch a few online videos - if you don't start the next video soon enough, it'll mute your speakers and you have to manually unmute ("wake up") the speakers. I find myself constantly "unmuting" these things. I'm actually considering throwing these speakers in the trash and replacing them with something that doesn't have such a useless and utterly annoying feature. It's called an "energy saving" feature, but all it does is make daily life with these speakers unnecessarily frustrating. It's really a shame, as the speakers themselves sound better than any other speaks I've had - but what good is the sound quality if you can't hear it?
