Welcome to episode #5 of HARMAN’s new weekly podcast, Audio Matters, dedicated to all things audio. Each week, Audio Matters brings together a diverse group of audio experts who join host Oisin Lunny in providing interesting, relevant, and entertaining information on a variety of music and audio topics for listeners everywhere.

This week, listen to expert trio Greg Sikora, Director and Head of Acoustic Systems Engineering at HARMAN, Stefan Varga, Senior Acoustic Engineer at HARMAN, and Dr. Amy Belfi, Assistant Professor in Psychological Science at Missouri University of Science and Technology as they take a closer look at what it takes to create truly exquisite sound in the car.

As the world slowly transitions out of lockdown, many people are rediscovering the sheer joy of listening to great music on the road.  What is the link between music and driving? How can it make people have more fun in the car? And why can’t technology replace the human ear in fine-tuning car audio systems?

We explore all of these questions and many more in this episode of Audio Matters. Available below and on Podigee and all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, and Deezer.
