Bought this as a bluetooth speaker for my ipod originally but i’ve since been using it paired up with my amazon echo dot with no problems at all. The sound quality is great and the lights are subtle and nice in a darkened room. I’ve been using this off and on for 2 weeks now on a single charge, admittedly i don’t normally have the lights enabled as i mostly listen to my music during the day. I am very happy with this product and i’m considering buying another one for my daughters bedroom to pair with her mp3 player.
Great buy and the lighting is good. The only thing is the connection between the two speakers can be a bit hit and miss and sometimes they cut out but good for the price.
It was £15 delivered and it made me smile. Connected easily to bluetooth, dialled the bass down a little (poweramp android) pushed the volume up to full and this little thing thumps along with the lights flashing to the music. The sound needs to be above 80% for it to change colour in time with the beat, set on a kitchen worktop with the speaker 6′ from the tiles and it performs very well, certainly not audiophile quality but quite adequate for the price. Shame the power isn’t usb at both ends but that’s the only downside.
i received this free to test and review. At only 3 watts i did not expect too much from this but there was plenty of volume for a normal size room and allowing for the quality of streaming and bluetooth as good as any other single bluetooth speaker i have got. It is a substantially made block which initially looks a fairly drab translucent white but bursts into vibrant colours once you turn the lights on. It can be used with just the lights to give various moods or in conjunction with streamed music from a phone produce a light show in time with the music. The in time with the music setting is towards the end of the video, unfortunately the video does not do justice to the colours. Set up was easy i just pushed the pairing button on the remote control the blue light on the speaker flashed rapidly and it paired that easily. It does however need the bluetooth avrcp profile on your phone or other device so check it may not work so easily with perhaps a windows 8 laptop, it did with mine but i have had to set up a compatible dongle to get other similar devices to work. I used the amazon music app to stream music and this worked well over the bluetooth link. From the remote individual colours can be set or it can be set to, flash, fade, strobe or smooth transition together with in time with the music. To work in time with the music i needed to have the volume right up before it worked, it does warn about this in the manual.
Its ok but not really loud enough.
My son was so impressed he went and bought 2 of them. Arrived quickly works well and is nice and loud.
- Great sound, cool lights, paired with my echo dot.
- Fun speakers, ideal for the garden.
- The quality is good and the shipping was fast
This is the most fabulous wee bit of kit. I already had the small kitsound boom bar and was scrolling through to buy another for my daughter when i came across this. So relaxing on fade and like a mini disco on flash. Can’t rate this product highly enough. Now thinking of buying another for myself.
I received this yesterday and couldn’t wait to use it. It has good sound and paired to my android phone instantly. I have now initiated a return as when i unplugged it this morning the plug came apart. It does not look very safe and considering the price of the product i expected better. This item was exactly what i was looking for as i like to listen to music in the bath and after recently dropping my phone in said bath a speaker with remote was perfect.
Very happy with the ease of set up i have this in my garden and the out put of the speaker sound is so good.
Wow great little gadget – used with hot tub, nice sound and funky lightsperfect for when in the hot tub at night, sound good for price. Also got some submersible lights for hot tub.
there are lots of bluetooth speakers available, the kitsound glow bluetooth speaker aims to be a little bit different by offering not only a sound system, but a colour changing light as well. Sent to me for review my first thoughts were that this was something from the game portal, it’s a simple looking cube with a speaker on the front, translucent white sides, and controls on the bottom along with the power in. Although there are controls on the bottom you’ll mainly be using the included remote control, and with an eye on portability it would’ve been nice to have the option of controlling the speaker via an app instead of a remote for when you take it somewhere, it’d be one less thing to carry. The remote itself is simple in design and allows you to control the light and speaker separately so you can listen to music without having the light on, alternatively you can have the light on without listening to music. The remote gives you five different light modes, one of which should change the colours to the music. This mode was a bit hit and miss, with the light not always reacting to music, but the others all worked as you’d expect and i especially like the soft transition mode between colours. You can also select a specific colour, including white, meaning this is perfect as a bedside light with speaker. Light level can be adjusted on the speaker, while bright enough to read in when in bed it’s not going to replace a dedicated lamp if you want to fill a room. It’s designed with resistance to water and dust meaning it can be used outdoors as well as in, making for an interesting addition to any garden parties you might have. The 3 w speaker gives you a surprisingly room filling volume and while the sound overall is good it lacks the bass expected for something of this size and price, there are better sounding speakers available for this price point, but none will light up your life like the glow.

. So if he’s happy i’m happy 😊.
Excellent, did everything i needed and more.
For the size and price, surprisingly good little speakers, definitely not hi fi but easily good enough for a small garden party or barbecue. The flashing or fading lights are another nice touch and look great in the garden. Only gripe was that i ordered the twin pack and did not notice that unlike the single packs you do not receive the power supplies. This meant the added expense of a usb power supply before i could charge them. Have not tested the length of holding charge yet, but hope its 18 hours in use as quoted as they will not run direct from the charger when the battery is flat.
Love this speaker will be great in the summer.
Really pleased with these speakers. I was looking for a new high quality speaker for my bedroom when my stereo packed up. I chose these because they are bluetooth so not only can i use them in my bedroom but i can easily move them to any room if having a party, or even use them in the garden or when camping etc (they are splash-proof and dust-proof)the sound is really good quality, i was actually surprised at the quality and volume of thesethe lights look really cool, i like the fact that you can choose a colour or have the colours on a cycle. You can also adjust the brightness which is really handy. I put them on full brightness and they give a nice low level lighting to my bedroom. They were so easy to pair via bluetooth. I paired them with both my iphone and ipad in seconds. They come with a remote control, which is really handy so you can change the light settings, volume and switch on/off at the touch of a button. Obviously you can also control the music from your smartphone or device as well. They hold charge well and are easy to re-charge with the two usb cables provided.
What fantastic little things. I have a single and a double. The sound quality for what they are, is more than adequate and you get a two for one because they work as a lamp without connecting a music source.
Wirelessly stream music from any bluetooth enabled device
Love the speakers, look great, sound good, made well. However, when placed too close together they suffer from cross talk with the remote so you can’t always tell which speaker your dealing with. Minor issue easily resolved so would definitely recommend them.
Works well after a bit of trouble setting up. Bluetooth range only about 1 foot manual says 10 foot)so need to place phone between speakers to get stereo connection. The lights are great for late night outdoor parties.
Brilliant, ideal for nights in the garden.
Great value item, wouldn’t have paid rrp but happy with what i did pay. Very happy with performance and portability. Sound quality is not amazing but more than acceptable.
The quality is good and the shipping was fast. I am pleased to say that they are worth the £29. Even as a night light they work well and are reasonable loud as a backdrop for a garden scene. Note: the speakers do not work too well at a long distance away from the device and the lights are not bright in daytime situations but are more than bright enough at night time. The speaker quality is quite good and they work well in rain or even the shower due to their water resistance.
I saw this exact same speaker at a local store at 100£ couldn’t believe i found it here for 20£.
