Product Description

Introducing the KitSound Hive

At KS we understand how important it is for your music to sound as good as it can, which is why our new Bluetooth, portable speaker – which connects to your mobile phone, computer, tablet, iPod, iPad, iPhone or any other Bluetooth device wirelessly – delivers the best sound quality and bass for its size yet.

Great Sound Quality

As the technological revolution continues, expectations are steadily increasing – something we at KS like to embrace. We believe that just because you’re listening to your music on a small speaker, it shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on sound. With the Hive’s measurements coming in at just H 64 mm x W 165 mm x D 49 mm, you’d be forgiven for underestimating its power. But with its two active speaker drivers which provide excellent sound and produce a wide audio spectrum, as well as its super bass technology, we’re confident that you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Massive Bass

Because of its digital sound processing, your music will be given extra bass and clarity, and the passive radiator, which allows the Hive to emit bass out of the bottom, produces great sound quality. Gone are the days when you have to strain to hear the tinny music coming out of your portable speaker at the park or on the beach – now people will be swarming around to hear your beats. You just have to hope it doesn’t attract any bees.

Rugged Design

Because of its sturdy design, the Hive will withstand the occasional knock, and like all KS products, it’s been built to last. Just like a well-made pair of Italian leather shoes that have been worn day in, day out; but without the cheese (dependent on your taste in music, that is).

Ultra Compatible

Not only is The Hive compatible with Apple, Android and Windows devices via Bluetooth, but it’s supplied with a 3.5 mm cable for line-in connectivity too, meaning it will work with most mobile phones, computers, tablets and MP3 players. So now it’s even easier to seamlessly stream and share music, movies and games, with call handling enabling you to take phone and conference calls too.

Long-Lasting

With the internal, rechargeable battery boasting a massive 10 hours of music play time, you can be safe in the knowledge that your party won’t be cut short, and if you use the USB charge cable that the Hive is supplied with, as well as a portable power bank, you can carry on even longer...

But although all this might be music to your ears, we can’t guarantee that your neighbours will like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Punchy Travel Speaker! 21 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Black
Length: 6:56 Mins
A great speaker in my opinion. I did a little box opening season so you can see it in more detail then the pics but was really impressed by the build quality of this product! Remember - this is made by the same people who make the BoomDock and that thig is epic!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bee's Knees 25 Mar 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I bought one of these units previously but had to return it due to the high pitched whining/ hissing noise problem. But, given the other good reviews, I thought I'd give it another go as it seemed likely that there was a duff run at the KitSound factory, and I didn't want anything smaller.

I'm glad I did try again, as I got a new one and so far it has been perfect. I also got a Bluetooth capable phone recently and found it connected immediately to my phone, and the signal stretched between rooms also. The 'Aux In' also worked fine this time.

The unit is surprisingly good at reproducing lower frequencies, and otherwise has a pretty good range for a small unit. The build quality is polished and it feels quite robust. It's also pretty damn loud. I can also confirm that this JUST fits in the pocket of a pair off skinny jeans, so it really is a mobile unit.

So, if you buy one of these and get unlucky with a unit that has whining or noise, then try again like me and you might find you get a good unit.

By comparison, I also got one of those X-Mini II units for my mum and of course while that unit is much more compact, it only has half the sonic wallop of this one with none of the lower range that the Hive has, so I am pleased I persisted with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly powerful 31 Jan 2014
By Turner
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I was expecting some quality but not as much as I encountered with this little powerhouse of a speaker. It is not only bassy but there is NO distortion at all at high volumes. Pairing was as simple as taking candy from a kid and it is now paired to my phone, nexus 7 as well as recently acquired ipad air. Lovely bit of kit that will come in handy for watching movies downloaded on my ipad air and google nexus 7. Buy it...you wont regret it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the money - but not Bose! 12 April 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Clear sound, well built - volume though good for size is nothing like the Bose - but is is a 1/4 of the Bose price.

So, not bad for the money - but probably best to buy the Bose if you've got the cash.

Volume at max not great - just adequate.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW - So small yet such a BIG SOUND 4 Jan 2014
By Mrs T
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Okay - I knew this had good reviews and is sold by a few reputable retailers, and there was a promotion on this over the Christmas period on here at Amazon......we wanted something we could easily move around the house, room to room, have in the kitchen when cooking a meal, teenage daughter can use when doing her art coursework.....we have a sound dock in the lounge we got 2 years ago. that is fabulous but way too heavy for this purpose....and after Christmas we didn't want to spend a fortune ......WELL, this is perfect. We Bluetoothed to it from numerous phones in the house and the sound was amazing, to say how small and lightweight this device is. Once charged it can hold the charge for 8-10 hours. For anyone on a budget wanting a portable sound dock and not worrying about dropping it, this is perfect. The bass comes from speakers underneath. Opening this is like 'pass the parcel', except when you get to the sound dock you will go ''how small ?'' - don't worry, just try it and be amazed like we were.

By A. F.
Colour Name:Purple|Verified Purchase
Has a good, deep sound and much better bass than other small speakers I've tried. Great battery life too. I really like that it can play quite loud. The build quality seems to be good. But I'm disappointed with the constant sound, sort of whiz or sough, that you can hear, when you play silent or classical music or while playing audiobooks. It's really annoying. You can't hear it if you play rock or pop music on higher volume. I tried the aux and there is, like mentioned in other reviews, an irritating beep sound, like it tries to make a Bluetooth connection. It disappears when turning Bluetooth on (at the same time).
We'll, I bought this for all round use, so right now I have a discussion with myself if I will keep it or return the speaker...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product 20 Aug 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This product delivers on every front. It looks beautiful, it's of great quality construction, the sound it produces is off the chart. A deep, full sound, not at all what I expected from a small speaker. It's very easy to use too. This is product design done right, I would throughly recommend.
