The Harman/Kardon Eq Microphone has been designed while doing my internship at Harman Design Center in Shenzhen (China) in October 2012.
The goal was to create a new version of calibration microphone for Harman/Kardon home amplifiers, matching with the new design language, and saving cost, to make the product price competitive.
From 6 pieces that made the original microphone, the new product is using 3 parts only, to do the same job, saving about 400% on the manufacturing cost, to reach 1$ production price.
This new design was made to be used on both flat surfaces, or in-hands, thanks to a soft and sober shape with an anti skid rubber pad.
The EQ Microphone is included with the latest Harman/Kardon amplifiers.
