Once you’ve got your audio equipment and Cube audience mic all set up, you can start using it and get the discussions started! Below you’ll find some tips on using Cube mic in different situations.

Is Cube mic safe to catch and throw?

The Cube mic is very light and made specifically for safe throwing and catching. The Cube cover is made from a combination of soft and durable foam and fabric, which softens the impact and ensures no damage is done to participants, room furniture, or the internal parts of the Cube. 

Even though the mic is safe to throw, be cautious about your surroundings! Be careful when throwing it in an environment with glasses containing liquids or other fragile objects! Additionally, always make sure the person you’re throwing the Cube to is aware they need to catch it!

If you suspect something is off with your Cube mic (microphone capsule isn’t fully secured in the cover or a component is damaged), reach out to us right away on live chat on our website or at  info@catchbox.com . We’ll be happy to help!

What if I can’t throw or catch the Cube mic?

Don't worry! In our experience, most people are better catchers and throwers than they realize! Part of the fun with the Cube mic is its ability to facilitate spontaneous discussions. The Cube mic eliminates the need for a person to carry a regular mic around, making it perfect for rapid-fire discussions and dynamic interactions. Additionally, Cube can also be passed around hand to hand!

What if people don’t want to catch the Cube mic? Used in many conferences, meetings, and other events, the Cube helps reduce anxiety before speaking because it’s fun and easy to use. The audience doesn’t have to worry about the slow passing of a handheld mic or figuring out if the mic is on. Just catch the Cube, hold it, and speak!

  • Try making eye contact with the person you're throwing the Cube to. Avoid throwing it to someone who is not aware they need to catch it! This will help ensure a great Cube mic experience with no sudden accidents.
  • We recommend that the event moderator gives a short introduction of the Cube mic before passing it to the audience. Providing basic information about what the Cube is, how to use it, and where the microphone is located will prepare your audience for using this microphone.
  • Use other people to help pass the Cube - if the throwing distance is too far, engage more participants by having them help pass the Cube mic around!

Can the Cube mic be used by people with pacemakers?

Catchbox products (microphone capsules, wireless chargers, and the soft covers) contain magnets that could affect the functioning of pacemakers and other electronic implants. If you wear these devices, maintain a sufficient distance from magnets. It’s important to warn others who wear these devices about the risks of getting too close to magnets.

Can the Cube mic be used by people with hearing difficulties?

Yes! This might require additional audio equipment (such as a hearing loop or remote microphone). We recommend double-checking the Hub receiver audio output options to see if you can connect it to your audio equipment.
Feel free to reach out to us on live chat on our website or at  info@catchbox.com to confirm audio equipment compatibility with Hub receiver.

Can I use the Cube mic while moving?

Yes, the Cube can easily be used while moving. It will mute only when the patented Automute technology senses motion from falling or being thrown. You can use the Cube while in motion, such as on a bus or other moving transportation.
