Bose Music Products: Great Computer Speakers - The Bose Companion Computer Speakers

Updated on February 24, 2011

Bose Music: Bose Computer Speakers

Bose music systems are some of the best music systems you will ever find.  I can say that with total confidence because I own several Bose music products. One Bose product that is a great addition to anyone's computer or audio collection of wares is the Bose computer speaker system.

I work as a medical transcriptionist and therefore, sound is super important to me. Over the past 15 or so years that I've been doing digital voice files, it has become increasingly important for me to have the best quality speakers to do my job to the best of my ability.

A few years ago, I decided to upgrade my speakers to Bose computer speakers and I have never regretted it for a minute. The quality of sound that I get from my Bose speakers with my headphones plugged in allows me to hear things with ease whereas I struggled before to obtain clarity of voice.

It also doesn't hurt that they also provide me with topnotch sound when I'm not working and just listening to my music!

Let's take a look at why the Bose computer speakers are so superior to traditional computer speakers and what you can do with them!

I have the Bose Companion 2 Series II speakers.

I purchased my set at Best Buy. However, I've seen them recently along with many other Bose products at Fred Meyers for instance and at other retail stores.

You can also find them on line in abundance!



What's Great About Bose Computer Speakers

  • Compact - only about 7-1/2 inches high and a couple inches wide
  • Great for laptops
  • Super for desktop computers - I use mine for my job every day and wouldn't trade
  • Easy to use - basically plug them in a USB port, connect them, and turn the knob
  • Lightweight
  • Tonal balance is built in - hence the 1 knob - no need to adjust any balance of sound
  • Magnetically shielded so they cannot interfere with your data
  • Portable because they are so lightweight and small
  • They work with MP3 players or any other audio device
  • Bose computers will surprise you as they will upgrade any sound
  • They have dual inputs so you can connect 2 devices
  • You can use these speakers for video gaming devices
  • These speakers work with CD players
  • There is a headphone jack in the front of the speaker so you can use them without disturbing anyone
  • You can also use them to play your iTunes library for instance or Internet music such as Pandora - the sound is so deep and rich that it will fill your entire living space
  • Price - while more than some speaker systems, I think the Bose computer speakers are a very reasonable investment to protect something extremely important to me - my ears and also give me the opportunity to hear things I struggled with before

Bose also makes many other kinds of speakers.  I've investigated their products in Bose stores and at various other stores in Washington and Oregon. 

For the money that you invest in Bose music equipment, you cannot ever measure the return if you're looking for quality sound. Their amazing technology somehow expands the stereo field and not only produces a better quality sound for high-pitched tones but it also brings out in full timbre the low-pitched tones, which are usually lacking in many speaker systems.

I would suggest having a demo of Bose products before you buy just to make sure you hear for yourself the difference in sound quality.  I think, speaking from experience, once you hear music through a Bose system, like me, you'll be sold on it from that day forward.

Bose computer speakers are a rather simple investment or add-on to your traditional computer or laptop but they can also serve you in many other ways as noted above.

They work with any and all audio devices and create such a warmth of sound you'll know what I mean.....and you won't believe your ears!

      Bummer, Darski - I've always gone with Dell's because they were affordable but then there are a lot of other good ones on the market I think. I actually usually ask a computer guru or 2 to point me in the right direction. I just call them up and ask for their advice, then try to average them all out! The Bose speakers are a great add-on but if you can't afford them, any extra speakers will help you hear better though I totally recommend the Bose since I work with my ears so to speak for a living. Hope you get up and running soon my friend!

      An excellent hub, I might need to talk to you, my computer just crashed, and I can't write at this time. I am borrowing this laptop to comment for my friends. I am not sure what to buy, times have changed, I don't have much $$ so I need to think about what you have been writing about, I would love to have the boss speakers so I could hear better. So much to think about. Rate up my friend...

      If I had a store selling great Bose speakers like this, I would have them playing "Buttons and Boze" constantly.

      You don't have to chastise me - I know I'm reaching with this one!

      Hey Roxsilver - thanks so much for stopping by - you TRULY will not be sorry. I love cranking up my tunes from my Pandora or iTunes library when I'm done working and the sound quality is absolutely phenomenal!

      Thanks MistyHorizon for the read and the informative comment. I didn't know that - I surely hope he does get into a situation where he can re-purchase one and enjoy it as it is truly the best sound system I've ever heard. I just love my Bose products!

      My Step Father has always been a huge fan of "Bose", and he thought his dreams had come true when my Mum bought him his Christmas present early this year, namely a Bose Radio/Music system that allowed him to plug in his ipod etc. He was quite gutted to find out that the D.A.B. included (Digitally Assisted Broadcasting for radio channels), does not work in the Channel Islands, and that to the best of Bose knowledge there are no plans for this facility to be introduced. Reluctantly he decided to return the product as without the radio function working it simply wasn't worth the expensive price tag. However, I am very certain that if in the future this situation changes he will most definitely buy one due to the fantastic quality of the sound and the product in general.

      Great Hub :)
