History

Bose Corporation was founded in 1964 by Dr. Amar G. Bose, then professor of electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While doing graduate work at MIT in the 1950s, Dr. Bose decided to purchase a new stereo system. He was disappointed to find that speakers with impressive technical specifications failed to reproduce the realism of a live performance.

This led to extensive research in the fields of speaker design and psychoacoustics-the human perception of sound. Dr. Bose's findings resulted in significantly new design concepts that help deliver the emotional impact of live music.

Bose Corporation established itself by introducing the 901 Direct/Reflecting speaker system in 1968. With this introduction, Bose achieved international acclaim by setting a new standard for lifelike sound reproduction.

Founder Amar Bose died in 2013 at the age of 83.
