The Bose® Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system offers the classic Bose sound in a small and modern package that is specifically tailored to movies and games audio. The 2.1 system connects to the computer via a single USB connection, and the control module allows you to easily adjust volume. The control module also has 1 headphone jack and 1 auxiliary audio 1/8-inch jack.
The Companion® 5 offers exceptionally wide sound that envelops the user in the environment of the movie or game they are playing. This greatly enhances the media experience. But there is a downside. With stereo tracks vocals can end up sounding thin and with acoustic music on can hear smearing and distortions in tone and timber. While these issues are less apparent on electronic or pop music, they can drive one a bit over the edge with most other genera.
