“Our inspiration for the Creature series was rooted in our weariness with static, six-sided box designs so commonly seen on desktop speaker systems,” said Kurt Solland, vice president of Industrial Design for Harman International’s consumer group. “The idea of a ‘creature’ bubbling next to your desktop with acoustic waveguides that look like face masks gives the system a distinctive personality that our consumers love.”

“Creature fans enjoyed the style of the previous designs and will be excited that the Creature III is back in time for the holidays,” said Christopher M. Dragon, director of Consumer and Field Marketing for Harman International. “The Creature III stays true to Harman International’s longstanding reputation for unbeatable sound quality and forward-thinking designs that create the best experience in music and gaming.”
