Giving people control of our most important human sense - hearing

Biography

Dan Gauger is a senior research engineer at Bose Corporation and one of the founders of its work on noise cancellation headphones. He joined the staff of Bose in 1980 and began work on electronics related to noise cancellation in his first weeks here. Over the years he's filled many roles as the technology progressed and business evolved. Today he is a member of Bose's Research and Concept Development staff where he is the technical leader of work in this field that has fascinated him throughout his career. Dan is a graduated of MIT (SB/SM EE, 1981) where his focus was on control system and analog circuit design. He has also contributed to the work of the US standards committee (ANSI/ASA S12/WG11) responsible for testing of hearing protectors.

Abstract

Hearing - more so than any other of our senses - combines richness as a conduit for information with a deep emotional connection. But, at the same time, it is comparatively out of our control. I'll describe the journey I've been on over my career at Bose Corporation, working with colleagues to offer people a better, quieter backdrop for their music, for communication or just for their thoughts. With a few examples, I will connect this to how, for over 50 years, Bose has been obsessed with innovation in the quest of products that astonish people, in unexpected, meaningful, and emotionally resonant ways. Finally, I'll give a glimpse of where we're headed next in this quest as we aim to give people control over their hearing, what I believe is our most important sense.
