Headphone Inventor Dies
Marty Lange

Martin Lange Jr.
In 1958, LANGE was the engineer who developed the prototype for the first KOSS Stereophone, later known as 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 last week in hospice care at his GLENDALE home. He was 82.
