Joined in the art of listening

We listen to you

We share the belief that you should be at the center of the best experiences. This is why we develop sound systems with you in mind. Regardless of the Volvo model and the road travelled, the Harman Kardon system is designed, installed and tuned to enhance your experience with powerful, captivating sound.

We listen to each other

Spectacular sound is never the product of chance. It is the result of a long development process focused on coming up with solutions that suit the very specific environment of a car cabin. Volvo and Harman Kardon engineers work closely together to develop sound systems that are customized to each car model. This ensures the powerful sound that Harman Kardon is known for. It surrounds you, no matter where you sit in the car.

We listen to the sound

Creating a premium sound system comprises four main pillars: the system design, the amplifier, the speakers, and the tuning. The latter is the final part in the process, during which all parameters are tuned so that the sound meets the eardrums in the right way. While computer software supports this, at a certain point only an expert human ear can identify which adjustments need to be made. Thanks to decades of listening experience, the Harman Kardon Premium Sound Systems for Volvo are tuned to give you an impactful and truly captivating experience.

Our listening becomes your experience

We love to listen for one simple reason: your experience. We are almost obsessed by it. While we can’t steer it or tell you what to feel, we can create a sound that’s so impactful it has an emotional effect. We can’t explain exactly what happens, and we can’t say why. But we can promise that the Harman Kardon Premium Sound in your new Volvo will move you, both physically and emotionally.

Reflections

The perfect soundtrack makes a journey more than just the road to a destination. We sent prominent artists Ana Diaz and J.Views on a roadtrip to Stockholm, Amsterdam and Berlin – some of the most creative cities in Europe – with one mission: To create the perfect soundtrack for Harman Kardon in Volvo XC40.

Amsterdam

Stockholm

Berlin

  • Exhilarating excitement

    For those times when it’s just you and the open road. Turn up the volume and feel the energy that is a sign of things to come.

    For the everyday life you know by heart. A beautiful song and clear, dynamic sound makes even the dullest of moments shine.

  • Calming contemplation

    For those times when you need to get away from it all. Surround yourself in sound, take a deep breath, and go wherever the music takes you.

  • Transcending Traffic

    For those instants when sound keeps you comfortable and calm, even when you are stuck in traffic.
