Labtec Verse-504 & 514 Voice Access Microphones

Silver
2001

Client: Labtec


Labtec was paying more in royalties for the design of its computer microphone than it cost to produce it. A simple base and stalk design circumvented the existing patent and reduced the number of parts to lower production costs. Consumer testing indicated interest in two different designs, which the company produced to capture both ends of the market.
