Koss and Mr.Tony Bennett re-unite to release some of the best Stereophones ever offered by Koss. Back when Tony Bennett first experienced Koss headphones in the studio in the very early 1960’s, he quickly realized that the best way to enjoy quality music reproduction at home was also with a great pair of Koss headphones. The new Tony Bennett headphones honors the venerable Koss tradition of delivering an uncompromised audiophile listening experience at an unbeatable price, and re-unites two legends of music to create unique Koss Tony Bennett 'Signature Edition' cans.
In 1958, John Koss paired up with engineer Martin Lange to develop their own portable stereo phonograph player with unique 'side-wing' speakers. One of the phonograph’s coolest features was a 'privacy' control, which allowed listeners to hear music "privately" by plugging in the world’s very first Koss SP-3 heaphones. The headphones were intended to be merely an accessory to demonstrate the high-fidelity sound of the Koss/Lange portable stereo phonograph player. Since headphones were historically used solely for basic communication tasks, the incredible sound quality and precise musical tone of the Koss SP-3 immediately became a huge sensation across the country. The new Koss Stereophones became the first to provide eager American Hi-Fi enthusiasts with true full-range sound to accurately reproduce recorded stereo music. On the heels of that initial success, John Koss quickly went into business manufacturing & marketing innovative 'Stereophones' later that same year.
Just about that time, a young soldier named Tony Bennett was returning from overseas and was developing a signature vocal sound of his own. Shortly after debuting his unique singing technique, Bennett signed with upstart Columbia Records and become the voice of many number 1 hits such as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches,” and “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” Koss was introduced to Tony Bennett by trumpet master Bobby Hackett in the studio. It did not take long for the two musicians to spread the word throughout the music industry and nascent audiophile community about the incredible sound and accuracy of Koss headphones. Soon other artists like Mel Torme, Stan Kenton, Al Hirt, Dizzy Gillespie, Les Brown, Woody Herman, and Doc Severinsen would appear in publicity photographs promoting Koss cans.
Now Koss is proud to renew the company’s partnership with musical legend Mr.Tony Bennett in recognition of his 85th birthday and incredible contributions to the fabric of modern vocal and jazz music.
