Bose Corporation was founded in 1964 by Dr. Amar G. Bose, professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Today, the company is primarily known for acoustics; however, its research has resulted in products for non-audio fields. Bose inventions have improved the performance of: loudspeakers, home entertainment systems, automotive music systems designed for the interior acoustics of each car model (first introduced by Bose), noise reducing headsets for pilots and the public (first introduced by Bose), sound in public spaces, the production of sound for musicians requiring electronic amplification of their instruments, materials testing and durability simulation instruments for biomedical, industrial and commercial applications, driver suspension systems for heavy-duty trucks.
