In 1953, John Koss began Koss Corporation by renting television sets to Milwaukee area hospitals. A Big Band musician, and an avid music lover, he soon turned his eye and earto the budding Hi Fi industry. Along with his old friend, Martin Lange, John Koss created the very first Koss Stereophone, the SP/3. Rugged, by today's standards, it was about to set the industry on its ear. And the industry, particularly the recording industry, took notice. Koss Stereophones were on the heads of crooners, jazz masters, and of course, the Fab Four.
From our amazing electrostatic models, to the hear-through sound of the first Decilite element, the Sound of Koss continued to evolve. Sons Michael J. Koss, President and C.E.O., and John Koss Jr., Vice President of Sales, carry on the Koss Tradition. Today, the Sound of Koss can be found in the home, on the go, at your desktop or in the air. There is a quality Koss Stereophone for every personal listening need.
Koss Corporation founder John Koss shares his behind-the-scenes story of inventing the first stereo headphones in 1958, and the emotional thrill of being "enclosed in the music" thanks to his innovation.
