MTV News has uncovered some fascinating facts about the world of bose and other luxury headphones.
The company was founded in 1967 by Japanese businessman Masayoshi Son and later sold to the German company Bose in 1992.
Son, who has been credited with inventing the sound design of headphones such as the MDR-1, MDR2 and MDR3, is best known for his pioneering design and pioneering sound.
In 2006, Son and company bought the music label Polydor for a reported $1.5 billion.
Son was also a pioneer of the high-end headphones market in the US, where he founded the Bose Audio division.
Son’s company, which still exists, is still a big seller, selling more than 70 million headphones globally.
But Son’s success has led to the demise of the company’s flagship headphones, the M5 and M6, which were popular with music lovers and were used in some of the world’s most prestigious concerts.
Son’s successor company, Sonbose, has remained relatively quiet over the years.
Sonbose’s most recent quarterly report says that its profit for the first quarter of 2017 was $2.4 million.
The Bose name has been synonymous with music for more than a decade.
In 2000, the company was the first luxury brand to launch a headphone that included a sound-activated speaker, and it quickly became the go-to headphone for DJs and concertgoers alike.
But Bose has struggled to find a niche in the music world.
It sold less than 10 million headphones in the United States in 2016, and sales in the U.K. fell by 30 percent, according to research firm Nielsen.
Bose’s latest quarterly report shows that its revenue fell in the fourth quarter of 2016 by more than 30 percent compared to the same quarter last year.
It has also had to deal with a slew of other pressing issues, including its new audio interface, which is still not fully functional.
“The BOSE Audio brand is at risk of a rapid decline due to the rapid evolution of the smartphone, which can be an intimidating challenge for any brand,” says the company.
