Today I attended a press event celebrating 50 years in business for acoustic and speaker giant Bose Corporation. Held on the west side of Manhattan, the event centered around a timeline showcasing actual Bose products from their first loudspeaker (1966) to their just-introduced QuietComfort 25 headphones. An interesting fact: When Bose founder Dr. Amar Bose died last year, he left the majority of company stock to MIT. Here are some shots from the event.

In 1966 the Bose 2201 speaker became the company’s first consumer product. It failed commercially however, because it required two empty corners of a room for proper placement. © Rita Catinella Orrell
