5.0 out of 5 stars Great Punchy Travel Speaker!
Customer Video Review     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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good small speaker but slight hiss on aux connection.
Good looking speaker, not quite as big as imagined, but very portable. Bluetooth connects quickly and easily, and one charge lasts a good 4 hours on constant use via bluetooth. We had this by the pool on holiday and if you place it well can deliver a very nice sound, no noticable distortion at full volume. It's not quite loud enough to compete against lots of other noise,...

5.0 out of 5 stars Kitsound Bluetooth Speaker., 5 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: KitSound Hive Bluetooth Wireless Universal Portable Stereo Speaker with 3.5mm Jack Compatible with Smartphones, Tablets and MP3 Devices Including iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/5C/6/6 Plus, iPad 2/3/4/Air/Mini, iPod Nano 7th Generation, iPod Touch 5th Generation, Samsung Galaxy S2/S3/S4/S5, Galaxy Note 2/3, Galaxy Tab 2/3/4, Amazon Fire Phone, Xperia Z1/Z2, HTC One/One M8 and Google Nexus 5/7/10 - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
For a speaker of such diminutive proportions to be able to capture such a realistic sound over all frequencies from low to high is indeed a revelation.
The HIVE SPEAKER is often used in conjunction with a Nexus 7 Tablet and Spotify as an aid during rehearsals with fellow musicians.
The sound via a Bluetooth connection is detailed with sufficient volume for the whole musical ensemble to hear.

Just received am impressed bought this item with a view to using at work ideal as it is rubberised ,smart little package can not fault the sound quality but it is enhanced a little by the Beats audio on my HTC phone which is a bonus,but perfectly ok other wise. Who needs an expensive sound system when you use this along with blinkbox radio station all the sound you want for £60.00.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big sound from a small package, 26 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: KitSound Hive Bluetooth Wireless Universal Portable Stereo Speaker with 3.5mm Jack Compatible with Smartphones, Tablets and MP3 Devices Including iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/5C/6/6 Plus, iPad 2/3/4/Air/Mini, iPod Nano 7th Generation, iPod Touch 5th Generation, Samsung Galaxy S2/S3/S4/S5, Galaxy Note 2/3, Galaxy Tab 2/3/4, Amazon Fire Phone, Xperia Z1/Z2, HTC One/One M8 and Google Nexus 5/7/10 - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This is a replacement unit as the first one's input dislodged and went inside, things do go faulty or it could have been my son not being careful putting the lead in. However Amazon's faulty exchange service was excellent and the Amazon colleague who helped me (sorry I forget his name) was very helpful.
In my opinion the Hive is well built, sturdy and has a nice quality feel due to the rubbery surface. It has the 3.5mm input as well as Bluetooth so should cover most audio/phone devices. I really like the sound quality, some good bass and clarity despite it's small size,
Volume is again more than acceptable but don't expect floor shaking sound.
Overall I really like this Hive and would recommend it to anyone...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Loud Bluetooth Speaker, 10 April 2014

This review is from: KitSound Hive Bluetooth Wireless Universal Portable Stereo Speaker with 3.5mm Jack Compatible with Smartphones, Tablets and MP3 Devices Including iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/5C/6/6 Plus, iPad 2/3/4/Air/Mini, iPod Nano 7th Generation, iPod Touch 5th Generation, Samsung Galaxy S2/S3/S4/S5, Galaxy Note 2/3, Galaxy Tab 2/3/4, Amazon Fire Phone, Xperia Z1/Z2, HTC One/One M8 and Google Nexus 5/7/10 - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I haven't compared this to the many other bluetooth speakers out there but it is great for what I want. Good and loud but still sounds great. Connects seamlessly with my Cowan X7 MP3 player (I might well be the only person the UK that owns one but well known for sounding great (and for being expensive!?)). As a previous reviewer stated, there is a slight underlying static when very quiet but I had to hold it up to my old ears to detect it. Battery life is good and it makes a big sound for such a small box. There are cheaper and more expensive out there but this certainly does the job for me.

Get this speaker now!! So worth £50 you can get the same for £150 why bother!!
There is one downfall with this and all speakers that have a USB charger etc the housing is always weak there but if you look after it. It's going to be good. Sound quality is great for this little thing, great bass clarity is great and you will get a good 5 hours playback off a full charge!!

I listens to mainly hard house/drum and bass, this little speaker handles the bass really well and you have to have it pretty loud to get any distortion, for the price an excellent product!!

Boought this for my son for his bedroom to play music from his phone. Really jealous - it looks cool and good sound. Not reallly loud but perfect for bedroom or kitchen. I'd say not loud enough for parties. Much smaller than I thought it would be from the picture so checkout the size. Easy to link up with phone.

Great sound, used it with dragonfly DAC and cayin amp.

However tweeters spoil easily and the common problem with aux where you need to connect to bluetooth to remove the humming noise is not acceptable.

1.0 out of 5 stars So much feedback!, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this speaker to plug into my laptop just for watching films and listening to music.
It looks absolutely great and initially I thought it was a fantastic little speaker.

However, when plugged into the 3.5 jack there is a high pitched beeping sound that is on for about 10 seconds, then off for 20, then on for another 10, then off for 20. I thought I could just put up with this and didn't want to bother with a return but after about a week of having it, when plugged into my laptop it started making a constant THUD THUD THUD noise which rendered the speaker totally unusable.

Have returned it, and (as usual) amazon have been fantastic
