  • Plug the included USB audio adapter to the computer’s USB port and connect it to the receiver’s audio-output using the provided audio cable.
  • 2
    Remove the transmitter from the cover - twist the cylinder 90 degrees to release the magnet lock and pull it upwards.
    3
    Turn on both the transmitter and the receiver - the status LED should turn green on both.
    If transmitter and receiver LED lights aren't solid, this means the units aren't paired. 
    Pairing the  1st generation Catchbox Lite: Press the pairing button on the receiver and on the transmitter.
    Pairing the 2nd generation Catchbox Lite: Press the pairing button on the receiver and press both volume control buttons simultaneously on the transmitter 
    Solid LED lights on both receiver and transmitter mean the pairing was successful.

    Adjust settings on Mac - go to System Preferences -->  Sound --> Output, and select “Catchbox”.
    5
    Adjust the volume level - test it first by speaking into the microphone and adjust it using the volume knob on the receiver and/or transmitter.
    6
    Place the transmitter into the cover - make sure to secure the magnetic lock between both! Do this by aligning both black triangle marks on the cover and transmitter. You should hear a slight click when the magnets lock.
