Has passed away.

I was never able to afford his 901 series speakers and had to settle for JBLs. Same goes for the NR headsets (aviation and home). But i sure did want them.

He certainly contributed greatly to both the creation and elimination of noise. Aviation and non aviation.

Thanks for posting. Bose speakers are strange, they look like really bad paper cones but sound great.

I bought a pair of 800s in 1974, which I used for mobile disco duties. Later in life, I bought 901s, in a PX in Germany, which are still used by my ex, after 28 years! They are expensive, but with 21,000 watts RMS max limit, they have not been copied.
R.I.P. Doctor Bose.
