Einhandhörer - single speaker system for exhibitions

Trying to bridge the gap between common headphones and expensive systems, cat-x decided to develop a cost effective hand-held monophonic speaker system for museums in cooperation with AWS-design. 

A new version with improved components is now available.

Since the product was launched in early 2011, it has been implemented in numerous museums throughout Europe.
