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.

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!

Overall it's a good piece of kit, sound is surprisingly deep and clear (especially if you put it on a nice resonant surface). Only thing that stops it being five stars is that sometimes if gets a high-frequency buzz / whine if you use the 3.5mm cable rather than bluetooth.

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 :)

I bought this as a present for a member of the family who was very impressed with my Bose Soundlink Mini. Now I love my sister to bits but no way could I afford to get her a Bose so I took the plunge and got the Hive speaker. Its slightly smaller than the Bose but the sound quality is very nearly on par with its more expensive rival, crisp high notes that don't distort, mellow mid range, and a very good amount of down firing bass that you can feel. It has a very warm, soft, rubbery feel to the case that makes it very easy to handle and the "honeycomb" design makes it stand out from the crowd. Pairing up is very simple and it has a very good range, easily covers the length of the house and has enough ooomph in it to fill your average sized room. All in all a very good buy and if I didn't have the Bose I would definitely have one of these.

Absolutely love these speakers! My friend had his similar BOSE speakers with him and I did a comparison between the two. Honestly, the sound is clearer within the Kitsound Hive speakers and the bass pump is so good for such a size! The price is superb and you get more than what you pay for quality wise. Do not be afraid to buy it, the biggest difference I felt between the two speakers were that the BOSE speakers had a slightly (very unnoticable) stronger bass kick and the grip within KS when you place it on the table could be a bit better when on full volume, because on heavier bass tracks it starts moving a bit. But that is not a big problem in my opinion. Would recommend it to anyone! Worth the money! You save a fortune and get excellent quality!

Style Name: Pocket HiveColour Name: Black
I use my pocket hive as a speaker for my phone and iPod for work.
The pocket hive was recommended to me by a friend as a replacement for my old work speakers.

The carry case is soft but robust enough to protect the speaker and has a handy little clip on it which is useful to hang it from a belt loop or rucksack.
There's a separate compartment in the top of the case which is big enough to house the 3.5mm aux input cable and a charge cable.

It's small size makes it easy to transport and it takes up next to no room wherever I use it.
It is so compact that It'll be ideal to take to festivals/ camping/ on holiday this year.

The Bluetooth, once setup, pairs quickly with my phone and I use the aux input connected to the phone jack on my iPod.
I haven't had any high pitched buzzing as reported on earlier reviews but my phone automatically pairs even when I use the aux.

The battery is as good as it says in the instructions and after an initial overnight charge I used the speaker for nearly two days without needing to recharge.

When I first tried the speaker I couldn't believe how punchy the sound was!
Considering it's barely 9cm tall and 8cm wide, the power and range of sound is quite simply staggering!
I've tried many different speaker options over the last couple of years and by comparison the Pocket hive Is louder, higher quality but much less expensive.

If a friend has another pocket hive you can link units together using 3.5mm jack to jack cables.... I haven't tried that yet but hope to soon.

All in all a fantastic speaker for the size.
