KitSound Hive2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker : Nice amount of base

The sound is great for the price, quite a but of bass and mid range is good for this type of small speaker, quite a full sound for a tiny box. Feels nice, and very simple to use/connect as long as you don’t have an iphone4 like me, i use a wire for that but connects with ipad and androids fine. The packaging is completely over the top. Plastic box and taped weird places to cardboard, on a par with printer ink blister packs, why do they do it?.A complete nightmare so if you are thinking of trying it before you give it away as a present, forget it. You will destroy the packaging getting into it and then will have to keep it. So this one is mine now despite wanting to gift it. If they did a redesign on the packaging it would be great, it needs to be more environmentally friendly and customer friendly.

This is actually the 2nd review i’ve wrote with regards to this speaker. I was previously sent a replacement due to very muffled sound after about 7 months of us. Well, now the replacement speaker will not charge at all no matter what wire or plug combination i use. I really expect more of a year’s use out of anything i buy. I treat my things really well also. The sound is great for the price and the feel of the speaker is fantastic. Just a shame it keeps breaking otherwise it would be bargain of the century for the money.

KitSound Hive2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker for Smartphones – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • High sound quality from 12 W of power
  • Warm and full bass
  • Sturdy design and universal portable
  • Wireless or wired connection
  • Built-in mic for call-handling

Did my research before ordering and wasn’t disappointed withe product that was delivered. The sound is strong and easily fills any room i can put it in at home. It’s never going to deliver amazing stereo, no single unit ever will, but you cannot go wrong in terms of sound quality from something so small and light. Would i ever buy another, yes.

For the price and size, this is an excellent portable bluetooth speaker. It’s on sale at prices between £35 and £65, so shop around. The solid construction and downward-facing bass port add depth to the sound, and it can also be connected by a supplied short lead to your music source which saves battery at both ends.

Last ages before needing another charge. Good for caravans and bedrooms and can be carried around. Excellent for domestic use but not parties.

KitSound Hive2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker for Smartphones – Black : This speaker packs a hell of a whollop when put into any modestly sized room and can be turned so far enough to entertain a whole garden party if the need arises. Nice amount of base, good warmth to the sound and a really, really long life span on a single charge. Of course there are genres which it can’t handle, such as multi-layered dance tracks and some of the more demanding, complex film scores, but for prog rock, metal and ambient, this is excellent.

It looks beautiful and produces a lot of sound for its size. It would be nice if you could adjust the bass and treble- as it’s a bit heavy on the bass. Great product though i have no problem recommending it.

I own both this wireless speaker and the newer hive evolution. I would not compare them as they are different generations and the evolution wipes the floor with both volume, quality and a deeper bass. However the hive2 is a solid product, a great speaker in it’s own right and definitely for the price worth buying. When in ‘slave mode’ via an aux cable from the other hive it’s volume is not too great and it does not add too much in combination.

This product is absolutely awesome. The sound quality is fantastic and really easy set up. I would highly recommend this fantastic little gismo box.

Great sound and battery life. Ive had it for years and no complaints.

I was very sceptical about the hive 2, as i had been looking at meany other brands to. I’m very glad i chose this model as i didn’t want to spend over £30 but have a good quality product. It sound amazing a is just what i needs for moving it around the house. I would definitely recommend this 100% .

Bought for hubby to take to yard and use in shed. Best gift everso easy to set up and good hardy design. I’ve put one on my santa list for me.

Looked at this in tesco and argos, 50 quid in black. Got the purple one ( daughter/recipient’s favourite colour ) for 30 and it came within 2 days, tracked delivery.

Tried so many bt speakers and this is definitely the best i’ve had so far in terms of sound, it’s loud. Without the distortion and good bass. I’m mad on my toons and play mixes constantly throughout the day. Not that keen on the charging set up. Quite stiff when plugging charger in so not always sure if it’s connected right. But apart from that definitely worth £30 for decent sound.

This really is a great bit of kit () especially considering the cheap price. It’s really solid with a nice smooth texture and quite a weight to it – if certainly feels very well made and seems much more expensive than it is. It’s also really easy to use, pairing is a breeze especially with nfc and unlike some bluetooth devices it just works first time every time. The controls are solid, easy to use and allow skipping of tracks, volulme control, play/pause and also works with a phone call. The aux socket is a welcome addition for devices that don’t have bluetooth, or for quick playback from a friends phone for example. I’ve yet to run the battery down, but i used it for a good 5 or 6 hours and the battery status led has still not gone to red which means it’s less than 30% so the stated playback time of 12 hours seems feasible. Then of course there’s the sound, which lets face it is all you really want to know – for the size it’s by far the best sounding device i’ve heard. It’s quite loud, crystal clear at all volumes and has surprisingly punchy bass along with clear higher notes without sounding tinny or otherwise washed out. It copes well with almost all kinds of music i’ve tried including heavy rock/metal, generic pop and classical, as well as voice and/or youtube type videos. It’s never going to compete with a proper speaker, but it’s easily as good as similar devices that cost 2 or even 3 times as much.

For the price an amazing bit of kit sounds good and looks good. Volume good enough to house work and work from home too. Rubber pads sotp anoooying vibrations.

Brilliant little bit of kit, something so small has no right sounding this good. Battery could last a bit longer but that’s a minor criticism – this is much better than most of the smaller or even mid sized bluetooth speakers.

12 year old bought for himself. He’s absolutely thrilled with it and connects it mostly to his ipad whilst trampolining in the garden.

My son says this speaker is amazing, he takes it everywhere with him, he loves it. My daughter had a beats pill that broke after a month of use and was ‘temperamental’ to say the least. This seems sturdy and built to last.

Bought to use mainly as a shower speaker and generates enough volume to be clearly heard over the shower. Has also been used for an outdoor speaker at a bbq, and provided enough noise to fill the garden without distorting. Easy to pair with my android phone, quickly reconnects when turns on, and battery life has been excellent so far.

We do not have a stereo and was a looking to buy one for a party we were having and we came across this. I use it with amazon music too and it’s used almost daily now in our house or when in the garden. Great price and much cheaper than a stereo too. And like the fact you can control the sound or song from the device it’s self.

I’ve literally used this item every day since i got it, love the sound, love the bass & the bluetooth range is fantastic, delivery was lightning quick too, a day earlier than expected.

    Nice lil piece of technology this. Have had it for almost a year now and still goes pretty strong. Decent bass through the bottom of the speaker so works best when sitting on a hard surface. Bluetooth range of about 4-5m’s, so good for chillin in your bedroom/ cooking in the kitchen or pumping tunes while you’re cycling around town.

    Battery after a while starts to go down fast and also keeps disconnecting from my phone randomly. Not happy not even a couple months old yet.

    • Absolute piece of garbage, sounds okay if it works, constant problems with bluetooth connection and battery. Some days it turns on others it doesn’t. Also it’s a lot smaller than you’d think. For the price, really disappointing.

    This speaker is pretty amazing in almost every way. Never run out of battery on me when i was using (though i do take care to charge between uses, where possible), have had it for around 2 years and it is still going strong. Only things that could be stronger is the power / bass, as i previously owned an anker speaker that was around the same size but performed quite a lot better in these areas.

    Good volume, clear sound with a good bass. Nice design, sturdy with a bit of weight in it. And great price for the kit at just over 30 euro.

      • I’ve enjoyed my kitsound hive for a long time now, i can’t think of a better bluetooth speaker in terms of sound quality and my non-bose budget. I love having this second speaker to hand, my only gripe is that every time you switch on the kitsound hive x and connect, the default volume on playback is very very loud (in comparison, my kitsound hive remembers my previous volume setting no problem). I’ve checked with the manufacturer and this is something that is hard wired in, so be aware.

    • Bought on 27th feb 18 and now it won’t charge. It’s the 2nd 1 i’ve had of these and the 1st was a good few years old before it failed so i’m really disappointed with this.

    The charging port has broken on my kitsound hive 2. I do not know who to contact about this issue. Speaker itself works a treat but the charging port breaking after 7 months makes it completely unusable.

    • This is an amazing piece of kit, for the price and size. I use it everywhere – at home, in the garden and even in classroom situations. It connects to everything i ask it to without any problems and the batteries last many hours before recharging. It has a crisp clean sound, not in the least “tinny” as you might expect from its size, with good bass and mid-range. It’s extremely easy to use – one of those rare gadgets where the instruction book is really unnecessary.

  20. I bought this speaker as an upgrade to the hive 2, i haven’t had any problems with it. The sound quality is amazing and fills a room easily, even outside it is still ample. The batterie lasts a whole day, even on full volume. Only thing they don’t make you aware about is that it becomes quieter when it drops below 30% charge, which has its pros and cons. Other than that its a great speaker.

      • For the money, its a great speaker, build quality is really nice its robust yet quite light. Sound quality is also very good. I’d bought hive x to replace my sony srsx3 which stopped working, but the sony decided to start working again, so i can compare them. Sony srsx3 cost 3times more than the hive x the sony has way more beef but for £50. 00 the hive x isn’t that far behind in quality or sound so i would recommend the hive x.

    • I was so excited to buy it once i read all of the reviews but when it arrived, it does not seem to be charging really well as i have to fiddle with the usb a couple of times to get it working. The speakers are nice but i don’t understand why it is difficult to get it charged.

    Good sound, okay battery life, but terrible problems with stopping charging after 6 months. Found out the hard way and should’ve doen my homework before purchasing. Buy another speaker to save yourself the effort.

      • I’ve purchased 3 of these now for members of my family. Really great speakers, loud, good base, can be used in the bathroom (though i’ve not put it under the shower) plus the battery lasts a long time and they come in a range of different colours. The first one i brought is now over a year old and never had any problems with any of them so i can recommend kitsound hive 2 100%.
