​In 2019, HARMAN commissioned a study that took a closer look at modern consumers’ listening habits and preferences, and offered a compelling glimpse of the future of listening. How important is sound quality to the listening experience? Are the latest technical innovations worthwhile? What does gaming have to do with music appreciation? The study answered all of these questions and many more.
