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.

Based on the positive reviews and having heard (and been frankly underwhelmed with) some of the comparable models available from other manufacturers first hand, I thought this was worth a go at this price... I was still expecting to be disappointed, given the small size and low price, but I was very pleasantly surprised! This kind of product generally has a tinny sound with a distorted, eye-watering bass, but that isn't the case here. I have now spent a weekend with the Hive, listening to a variety of music from dance to indie, and I've been impressed. I should start by saying I have used a friend's Bose unit of comparable size and found it had an excessively accentuated mid-bass and top end treble that seems initially impressive but is ultimately really tiresome to listen to for any length of time. On the other hand, whoever designed this unit should be congratulated for producing something that is really pleasant to listen to in the longer term. Of course, something this tiny can't compete with a full-size hi-fi, but it does an impressive job nonetheless. I still can't quite believe how much distortion-free volume it can produce from such tiny drive units. The passive bass port on the bottom sounds like a gimmick but actually works incredibly well and the overall sound is a nice, warm and rounded sound provided you put it on a hard surface (like a table) and close to a wall or similar reflecting surface. The money has definitely been spent on the critical ingredients here, so the carry case is just a basic velvet-fabric wallet with drawstring (still reasonable quality) and there are just the 3.5mm and micro-USB cables included; some people seem to rave about the packaging - yes, it's quite nice, but fortunately this isn't where the money has been spent either! Battery life better than quoted. Only downside is that at max volume it can eventually vibrate it's way off the table! All-in-all though, really the best unit in this class that cannot be beaten :)

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!

I was lucky enough to buy this speaker as part of the Amazon Black Friday deals and i was VERY fortunate. This really is a truly wonderful speaker. The bass is deep and rich and the sound is crisp and clean. It is so small and compact but produces a wonderful sound. I also have a Sonos system and I selected this over the Play:One and i have no regrets.
I am using this is my fairly small study and in a small room it is amazing. Of course it may be different in a larger space but for a smaller to medium size room i cannot recommend it enough. It is fantastic value for money even for the price on Amazon now (25/01/14)

I did a bit of research into a range of speakers in the £20 to the £150 price range, from UE Boom, Native Switch, Jawbone, BOSE, Anker and the cheaper sets. I wanted something i can listen to at home and while travelling that won't power a rave but will give me a descent amount of room filling sound. This speaker, for just £40 delivers on that in spades. It's loud enough to have a little party in a hotel room and the quality is good enough to put it on a low and read a book or cook. It's all I need for home and I'm tempted to buy a couple more to scatter about the house. If you want to have a loud speaker this is too small, but if you want quality build, sound and a decent battery life for less than £50 I highly recommend it.

p.s. range isn't huge, it'll manage a room but will drop connection if you walk out with your phone.

Wow this ks product has a great sound quality for it's size, I am amazed with the battery life it is great. I have used it longer than the reported 6-10 hours without being on low battery. The build quality is great and not at all flimsy. The only thing I have noticed is that when on full volume the speaker distorts a little but that is just how it is. The unit itself also moves slightly when on high volume. But other than that I cannot fault this product and I am very pleased with this product.

This speaker has absolutely filled the needs I bought it for! Wether I use the Bluetooth function or the aux cable the speaker comes with, it delivers excellent sound quality with bass levels that surprised me!
I use this speaker either by myself just chilling to some music, or when there's a group of 8 - 10 people and a small gathering with some drinks, and it's volume is plenty to be heard. Very lightweight and nicely portable for wherever you're going. Wouldn't reccommend for a large party as the volume will likely be drowned out a bit, but for small groups of people it's excellent.
Initially when I bought the speaker, there was a problem with it regarding the battery, but after contacting KitSound on both their website and facebook page, their helpful response the next day meant I could get a replacement sent out to me instantly, and so within 3 days of buying the first one, it was sent back and I had the fully functional one!
Buy the speaker right now. Go on, hit add to basket and pay. You won't regret it!

I received this as a gift for Christmas, it wasn't something I asked for and I have to say its not something I would have selected myself as I'd have gone for something far more pricey, something with more of a brand attached to it like Bose. But I'm so glad I had this given to me!!

The sound quality is great for its price, the size of the item, the weight, the fact it charges and lasts for so long all make this an instant winner of a product if you're looking for something to take on holiday, to the beach, to the pool, or even just to take music out to the garden.

I use this so much more than I ever thought I would, and more than I would if I had an expensive Bose product, as it is just so simply good at what it does. I never tend to leave home without it if I know I'm going to a party or friends, as I know I can help to provide the music far easier than them dragging out wired old speakers.
