Bose is a upper-middle audio gear company based in Framingham, Massachusetts. Founded in 1964 by Amar Bose, whose idea of achieving better sound through research began 8 years earlier while he was doing his graduate studies at MIT.
Bose is best known for its noise-cancelling technology that is recognized as the best in class by casual music lovers. However, hardcore enthusiasts and audiophiles generally regard Bose’s sound as somehow unauthentic.
Bose is one of the most successful consumer audio gear company, due to its clever implementation of non-intruding form factor (aka wife-approved designs) and soothing, easy listening sounds appreciated by general music lovers which represent majority of the market.
Its product line consist of speakers, headphones, earphones, home theaters, and speakers (both wireless and wired).
