Our story

Bose Corporation headquarters

Why we innovate »

In the 1950s, Dr. Amar G. Bose was a grad student at MIT, and a classical music enthusiast. To reward himself for his studies, after careful consideration he purchased a new home stereo system that he hoped would deliver the realism of live music. Though the speakers he chose carried impressive technical specs, they didn't deliver in real life.

His path was clear. Create better, more lifelike sound.
