Dr. Bose received his bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and doctorate from MIT, all in electrical engineering. He was asked to join the faculty in 1956, and he accepted with the intention of teaching for no more than two years. He continued as a member of the MIT faculty until 2001."

He made a company that services the general need of sound in real, lifetime situations. To that end he succeeded.

Bose was a pioneer in hifi, I can't even say anything bad about bose even considering its current offerings.

Great memories listening to Bose speakers in the 90s.

My pastor played some recordings of a pipe organ on some small Bose speakers and a sub, and I was seriously looking for the pipes.  Regardless of Bose's reputation around here, I was exceedingly impressed with the performance of those speakers.

Seriously, you two?  Seriously?  Why even post at all then?  Think anyone cares about what you say?  At least he did something.  Something HUGE at that.


That was the nicest way I could think of expressing myself about that.  Sad.

 

 

 

 

In expressing appreciation to Dr. Bose on the occasion of the gift, MIT’s then-president, Susan Hockfield, said of him, “His insatiable curiosity propelled remarkable research, both at MIT and within the company he founded. Dr. Bose has always been more concerned about the next two decades than about the next two quarters.”

 

 

 

Long term.  Think long term, and always have more than one plan.

Hey, hold back folks.

 

Let this not be a debate about bose, beats, skullcandy and audiophile brands. Them thoughts have been expressed thousands of times on headfi before, so no need to repeat them discussions.

R.I.P, even though I don't like Bose's headphones I still respect him.

Linked article is 404ed. Not sure if it's because I'm part of the unwashed masses (read: not a member) or whatnot but it's broken for me.
