About the Product
One of the Best Computer Speaker Systems from Bose
If you’re looking for the better audio experience from your computer, look no further than the Companion 50 speaker system from Bose. This multimedia speaker system creates a dramatic acoustic environment to rival a five-speaker surround-sound system using just two small desktop speakers and an inconspicuous Acoustimass module.
Get More from your Computer
The chances are you’re using your computer for all types of entertainment, whether it be listening to music, watching films and TV shows or gaming. But if you're using your laptop speakers or the ones that came with your desktop computer, you're not getting any better audio quality.
The Companion 50 system offers optimum audio experience. Using proprietary TrueSpace digital processing circuitry, the system delivers a wide, spacious soundstage, reproducing the original drama behind the music, films and games that you enjoy.
Better Sound, Less Clutter, Easy Setup
The Companion 50 system offers a level of immersive sound that you’d expect to hear from a five-speaker surround-sound system but in a more practical setup. The two small desktop speakers are elevated on stands to ensure the better quality sound is produced and to provide extra space on your desk.
Setting up the system involves a single connection to your computer – no special software or hardware upgrades are required. Volume controls, a single-touch mute button, a headphone jack and auxiliary input are all within easy reach on the all-in-one control pod. To save energy, sleep mode is activated after 30 minutes of inactivity and the system wakes up when an audio signal is received or the control pod is tapped.

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. So first I played around with the location of the satellite speakers on my desk, and the sub-woofer underneath it, as well as reconfiguring the audio drivers on my PC. After about an hour, I had it about as good as it was going to get. And, considering the cost, it was still VERY average. In fact I'd heard better sound coming out of a £140 PC sound system.
So, next I changed out the 'el cheapo' Bose aux cable, which the system came with, for an IBRA premium quality, dual shielded cable with 24k gold plated connectors. WOW, what a difference! Still a little disappointing, but a HUGE improvement.
The problem seems to be that the output of my PC Aux is insufficient to drive it and produce a reasonable quality sound-stage and presence. So, not one to be easily beaten, I've ordered a Sabre 9018 USB DAC, which I have heard are very good. If that doesn't do it, I am going to return it.
*** OMG moment 3 days later! ***
I first want to say, I just reconnected the system to my computer via a Sabre 9018 USB Dac and the improvement is awesome. Totally awesome!
Clearly, its definitely not Bose's fault that the sound output of my motherboard is not sufficient to drive their Companion 50 Multimedia Speaker System. BUT, driving it with the Sabre 9018 USB Dac, which is a simple plugin -- one end into a USB port and the other into the Aux cable -- improves the performance beyond recognition.
The top end is "real", the mid-range very present and pure, with no 'boxy' colouration, and base is solid, but not 'boomy'. Not a very technical explanation but I hope you get what I mean.
I am sitting here streaming my Seasick Steve playlist at the moment and Steve (plus the band/backing/audience), are right here in the room with me!!! I can't believe the difference it makes.
It would be niggardly not to give Bose 5 stars for the system, just because of the 'el cheapo' Aux cable, so I have uprated my review.
IMPORTANT: Don't try and drive this system with just raw Aux output from your computer. If you don't already have a sound card, get a "Hifime Sabre 9018 USB DAC" and connect it to your Bose system with an IBRA "Aux Cable 2M 3.5mm Stereo Premium Auxiliary Audio Cable", not the 'el cheapo' one Bose provides.
That's an extra £75 to invest, but you'll be very VERY glad you did.
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.
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.
