In the spirit of those famous Koss billboards, it's fair to say the company exists, at least in part, beKoss of Martin Lange Jr.

In 1958, Lange was the engineer who developed the prototype for the first Koss Stereophone, inspired by John C. Koss Sr.'s idea for personal stereo headphones.

The rest is headphone history.

"Marty Lange was instrumental in the development of the first SP/3Stereophone," said Koss, founder and now chairman of the Koss Corp. "His creativity and dedication were critical to the business we built together."

Lange died of natural causes Tuesday in hospice care at his Glendale home. He was 82.

Newton Minow 1961

Ours has been called the jet age, the atomic age, the space age. It is also, I submit, the television age. And just as history will decide whether the leaders of today's world employed the atom to destroy the world or rebuild it for mankind's benefit, so will history decide whether today's broadcasters employed their powerful voice to enrich the people or to debase them. - Newton Minow 1961

Sunday February 9, 1964, at 8 p.m., the Beatles made their first American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. During their appearance, the Beatles sang five songs in the following order: All My Loving, Till There Was You, She Loves You, I Saw Her Standing There, and I Want To Hold Your Hand. On this night, 73 million people watched The Beatles. Their appearance had such an impact that most normal activities in America came to a standstill watching their performance. Criminal activity in most of the major cities and towns in America was put on hold, and getting a taxi or bus in New York was almost impossible, until their performance was over. Mass hysteria resulted wherever the Beatles appeared, and Beatlemania was created.
