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.
