About Harman/Kardon

Premium surround sound for high-end automobiles

The Harman Kardon brand name has been synonymous with audio innovation since the world's very first high-fidelity receiver, the Harman Kardon Festival D1000, was invented in 1954. Since then, a passion for music and the resulting innovative strength have made us the leading manufacturer of first-class audio systems – at home and in the car.

The Harman Kardon guiding principle has always been technology leadership for music's sake and the customer's benefit, not technology for technology's sake. With this objective in mind, the realization quickly dawned that for maximum authentic sound quality, the entire process chain – from the recording equipment to professional studio and storage technology to the highest-quality playback products – must be designed by a single hand.

Over the years, Harman has gathered the world's best-known brands in the most important areas of music production and reproduction under one roof, including the Harman Kardon, Becker®, Lexicon®, Mark Levinson®, Reve®l, AKG®, Infinity®, JBL®, Studer® and Soundcraft® brands.
