Sony Headphones

Following WWII, Masaru Ibuka opened a small repair shop in Tokyo where he fixed radios. His success led him to take on a partner, Akio Morita, and name their new shop, Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation.

In the 1950s, Ibuka visited the United Sates when here learned about transistors. Before leaving, he received license to the technology to bring back to Japan. This led to the release of the TR-55 transistor radio, Sony’s first big commercial venture.

Morita and Ibuka realized that their company’s Japanese name, Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo, would baffle people from around the globe. They needed a name that captured their company that was easily pronounced and didn’t already exist. Using the Latin word “sonus,” they came up with Sony.

As the years progressed, Sony branched out into other products ranging from headphones to televisions and game systems to DVD players. Sony is the world’s leading authority on electronics.

Important Events in the Development of Sony’s Headphones

The MDR-NC500D headphones released in 2008 with much anticipation. Sony stated the headphones blocked out 99 percent of all ambient sounds.

Another 2008 release involved the release of Bluetoothâ headphones that eliminate wires and cables from getting tangled or developing frays that deteriorate sound quality.

Finally, in 2008 Sony developed a line of headphones for children. Low in price and big on sound, the headphones are smaller to fit children’s heads. The headphones only have the cable on one side to prevent children from getting the wiring caught around their necks.
