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.

About KitSound

We are craftspeople. We are musicians. We are KitSound and we all commit ourselves to achieving one shared goal: Bringing people closer to their music. By understanding music we stay true to its craft. Pure, rich, incredible sound. We settle for nothing less.

At KS, we believe your music deserves to be listened to on great quality products that don’t cost the earth. We might not all share the same taste in music (the ferocious disputes on music forums prove that), but whether it’s Irish folk, death metal or any number of obscure genres which seem to be multiplying by the minute, the artists responsible for connecting with you through their craft have bared their souls to do so. We think that’s worth celebrating.

Style Name: Pocket HiveColour Name: Black
Having owned this speaker for a few weeks now i can safely say this is by far the best blutooth speaker in its catagory.
I tend to use this style of speaker often whilst cooking in a noisy kitchen, as a teaching aid for music playback and also for listening to music in the garden.
I have previously used speakers from "Phillips, Sony and Bush". This is just a completely different kettle of fish. The quality of sound compared to other similarly priced units is very noticable. Bass response is clear and NEVER distorts even when pushed to the limit. Trebbles and mids are punchy and and balanced with the bass well.
The fit and finish are second to none and the unit feels like it will outlast any rivals especially with the bespoke carry case. It also looks classy in black.
Connectivity could not be simpler. It looks like you can daisychain these together aswell which is a big bonus if you want extra power.
Although "Kit Sound" is a fairly new kid on the block, i would seriously consider looking into their speakers before going with some of the obvious manufacturers, i guarantee you will be surprised.
I am already looking into the hive headphones by Kit Sound as my next purchase.
Keep the products coming.

Style Name: Pocket HiveColour Name: Black

The KitSound Pocket Hive is a really nice looking portable Bluetooth speaker that was sent to me for review.

It's smaller than you'd think looking at the photos, standing approximately 8cm tall, and unlike the typical cylindrical or rectangular design adopted by manufacturers the world over KitSound have opted for a hexagonal shape.

It has a really nice matt finish, one that is rather strokable and gives this pocket boom box a premium feel.

You charge via USB, and next to the charging slot are 2 x 3.5 sockets, one acts as a line in (e.g. for use with MP3 players that don't have Bluetooth) the other acts as a line out, something not especially common on portable speakers. The line out gives you the option to plug a second speaker into the first, for example a second Pocket Hive.

Pairing with a mobile is made really easy with the inclusion of NFC, just tap your phone on the NFC tag and it asks if you want to pair with the speaker. If you don't have an NFC enabled phone you pair via the traditional Bluetooth settings menu.

For something so small the sound quality is very good. It easily fills the room without distorting, there wasn't any lag when watching YouTube videos and for something so tiny it's got a decent bit of bass.

On the base of the Pocket Hive is a pad that vibrates the surface the Pocket Hive is placed on adding an additional kick to the bass. The speaker sounds great even without this additional kick, and while not an amazing bass it's great for something so tiny.

The small size makes this great for travelling around with and you get a travel bag included. It's nice to see a quality bag has been bundled in rather than just a cloth bag, and it has a compartment at the top if you want to store the charging cable.

KitSound have done a great job with the Pocket Hive, it's the right design with the right sound quality at the right price.

Excellent for what it is, sound quality is great as long as your expectations are realistic. Obviously a portable speaker of this size is never going to sound like a proper hi-fi, it's not something I'd recommend as your only source of audio at home. However, this is great as a portable unit that's good for camping trips, hotels, out in the garden etc or just as a quick and easy boost to the audio output of a laptop. I've previously used the popular X-mini speakers and, in volume terms, this sounds roughly comparable to two of those daisy chained together but the sound quality of the Hive is better and whereas the X-minis tend to bounce around all over the place and fall over this is much more stable. The 'passive bass radiator' on the bottom actually does seem to help extend the bottom end a bit, particularly if the speaker is placed on a hard surface and the bass response is pretty good (again - if you're realistic about what can be achieved at this size and price). I've had no problems with the bluetooth but I do tend to use the 3.5mm stereo jack more often simply because it uses less battery power both on the speaker and on whatever device I'm using to play music from. The battery life is excellent too, I've certainly had more than the advertised 10 hours out of a full charge when connected through the jack input. For about a quarter of the price of a Bose Soundlink Mini you can't go wrong.

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 purchased this item at the end of November 2013 for use as a portable speaker to use on holiday. It looks very stylish and feels very solid and good quality. The case is a rubber like sealed unit and would appear to be substantial. And the sound quality has been outstanding - great to use for sharing music and internet radio from my Ipad and removing the need for earphones. I have just returned from my second holiday of 2015, and happily used the speaker on 3 holidays in 2014, but sad to say the unit has failed during this recent holiday and as it is out of warranty period it would seem I have no way of getting a repair / replacement. The unit appears to charge with red light on during charge and turning to green to indicate fully charged, but as soon as I remove the charging cable or try to switch the unit on the green light extinguishes and the unit appears to be totally dead. So all in all I have been able to use the unit for less than 6 weeks.

I am pleased to say that, having made contact with Justin at Kitsound he has very kindly offered to look at my speaker and see if anything can be done to restore my satisfaction with what I hope will continue to be a very useful holiday accessory.
