Indian origin Acoustic Engineer and Inventor Amar G. Bose dies at 83

Audio tech pioneer Amar G. Bose, who was the founder of the high-end audio equipment company, the Bose Corporation, died on Friday at his home in Wayland, Massachusetts. He was 83

His death was confirmed by his son, Dr. Vanu G. Bose, the New York Times reported.

Amar, who was a professor of electrical engineering at MIT, where he had also previously earned his doctorate, focused relentlessly on acoustic engineering innovation and his speakers earned a reputation for bringing concert-hall-quality audio into the home.

The late engineer pursued risky long-term research, such as noise-canceling headphones and an innovative suspension system for cars, without the pressures of quarterly earnings announcements.

In a 2004 interview in Popular Science magazine, he said that he never went into business to make money, but went to do interesting things that hadn't been done before.

In the early 1960s, Bose invented a new type of stereo speaker based on psychoacoustics, the study of sound perception.

He was born on Nov. 2, 1929, in Philadelphia to a Bengali freedom fighter.

Bose and his former wife, Prema, had two children, Vanu, now the head of his own company, Vanu Inc. in Cambridge, Mass., and Maya, who survive him, as does his second wife, Ursula, and one grandchild.
