  • Catchbox New item

    Catchbox - A Throw-able Microphone


    Catchbox is a throw-able microphone that facilitates the sharing of ideas in various occasions in a fun and effective way.

    Catchbox can/is:

    • Draw participation from the audience easily - just throw them the box;
    • Faster and more efficient than passing a handheld microphone;
    • Make questions, comments, and discussions more spontaneous;
    • Make events more engaging and fun;
    • Break the ice and lighten the atmosphere; and
    • more...



    • Light & Soft - All the electronic components are hidden inside, so that dropping and throwing the device would not cause any damage to the surroundings, or do any harm to the participants.
    • Active Automute - It senses the motion of the Catchbox and temporarily switches off the audio when the device is thrown, caught or dropped.
    • Professional Sound Quality - It comes with an optimised frequency response microphone for speech and noise cancellation.
