Why Audiophiles Hate Bose
Could only bear to watch the first 3 minutes. I think he was genuinely an audiophile, because he thought others would give a **** about his unsubstantiated opinion.

FWIW I thought Bose got a bad rap from audiophiles who believe in science and know his patent and marketing on bouncing sound everywhere is nonsense.

Iíve always considered Bose home hifi to be far more style than substance.

My first set of speakers when I was in college were some 301's, can't recall the series number - they had the movable vane on the high frequency driver. Sounded fine, never had any complaints about them. The wave radio on the nightstand has worked flawlessly for coming up on a couple of decades.

The pilot headsets are terrific.

His manufactured products improved the lives of a lot of people, and he left a great legacy to his alma mater. As far as I can tell, he left people and the world better than he found it.

Seems like a life well lived to me.

I'm by no means a fan or apologist, but I very much doubt that "The Mountain" gives a flying fork about what self appointed audiophiles think or blog about them.

It's been literally half a century since the "landmark design" that first brought the name to prominence debuted, and regardless of your opinions as to the performance / value for money of the entire home / personal audio product line, this is by all measures a very successful company with a lot of serious engineering chops.

Audiophiles don't hate Bose they hate people that are happy with Bose. Bose speakers never embodied his seminal work, and as time passed it just just became another branded item. I spent an entire day with my daughter cleaning out my mother's house so we could sell it wondering how do they get so much bass out of that little box.

Mostly for a quarter million views in a week. Pick a topic that you know people will have strong opinions on and lots of views and eventually income from advertising are in your future.

Does it matter that's the Bozo effect?
