Welcome to episode #10 of HARMAN’s weekly podcast, Audio Matters, dedicated to all things audio. Every Thursday, Audio Matters brings together a diverse group of audio experts who join host Oisin Lunny to present fun, relevant, entertaining information on a variety of music and audio topics for listeners everywhere.

This week, Damon Johnson, Global Category Director for Headphones at HARMAN, and Alfredo Fernandez Franco, Director of Immersive Audio at HARMAN, join us to talk about the importance of sound in today’s video games, with a fascinating look at the science and technology behind the development of new headsets for this wildly popular category.

Why is gaming audio such a big deal in 2020? How does sound quality affect the gaming experience? What exactly is the “Fortnite Effect”? How is HARMAN shaking up the market and setting a new benchmark with its JBL Quantum headset range giving customers the ultimate advantage in gaming through immersive sound.

We’ll answer all of these questions and a whole lot more in this episode of Audio Matters. Available below as well as on Podigee and all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, TuneIn, and Deezer.
