THE SCIENCE OF SOUND
Harman Kardon has invested heavily in developing state of the art research and development facilities and meticulous testing procedures which let us transfer our scientific know-how directly into our products. We also have close-knit workshops where eager craftsman can be found tinkering with prototypes and shaping final products. It is this combination of boundless scientific energy and homespun dedication that makes the Harman Kardon magic come alive.
Our facilities include two anechoic chambers – rooms which absorb all sound reflections and are completely insulated from outside noise. They help us to test the accuracy of our speaker drivers with all outside influence and interference removed from the room. We also run blind tests on all of our products, pitching our systems against those of our rivals in a heavily controlled environment and inviting trained, unbiased listeners to feedback on their performance. We don’t stop developing until our products emerge as convincing winners.
Because of the time and energy that we have invested into our scientific testing, research and development over the years, we can guarantee that every Harman Kardon product released has a weight of scientific backing behind it.
