Bose Corporation is an American multimedia audio and sound company founded in 1964 by former MIT professor Amar G. Bose. It is curious because 2011 most of the shares of the company were donated to MIT. This makes the institute the main holder of the company, annually receiving dividends that must be used to continue with the research and education of its students. On the other hand, the institute is not active in the administration of the company and they cannot dispose of their shares. So Bose will remain a private company and will be independent.
The first steps of the company came after several investigations of its founder in speaker design, sound reflection and psychoacoustics. From their achievements came the 901 ™ Direct / Reflecting ™ loudspeaker system in 68. Their goal was to reproduce the sensation of live music as closely as possible.
Bose is currently responsible for manufacturing a very wide range of HIFI components, such as speakers, headphones and amplifiers, as well as professional audio systems for the sound of spaces and events, and its home cinema systems are also very popular. Its products are characterized by iconic designs, highly polished shapes and construction and a very present technical and scientific component, with a number of patents and innovations in each of its creations. Almost all their products have something different, their own technology that no other brand can use.
To give an example of what Bose is, it is inevitable to talk about the Quietconfort, the most popular active noise canceling headphones in the world. A product that works like a charm and has been a reference in its market for almost 20 years, with a very careful, comfortable, light and resistant industrial design, Bose's patented ANC technology that has evolved over time, from the cable to bluetooth, cleaner and more current forms, more technological and lighter materials ... and it is that it is the sum of technology, perfectionism and a contemporary sense of design, which differentiates Bose from many other brands that try to be like them.
