KitSound BoomBar Universal Portable Rechargeable Stereo Bluetooth Sound System Compatible : Excellent quality

Nice sound, agree with others on there, not as weighty or full and bassy as my anker but still good for the money, a tad on the light side.

This is my second kitsound product and it doesn’t disappoint. This one is light and easily portable.

Bought this for my daughter for xmas, she loves it so i am happy to say its great.

Granddaughter loves it as her initials are ks. Uses it a lot but i think her dads got his eye on it.

Did not stand the test of time. You get what you pay for as they say.

KitSound BoomBar Universal Portable Rechargeable Stereo Bluetooth Sound System Compatible with Smartphones, Tablets and MP3 Devices – Purple : Brilliant sound quality and volume. Comes in super little case for travel. So good i bought another as a gift in another colour.

Love the matte purple colour, sound quality is great and it’s very easy to set up. Comes with its own hard case which is perfect for transporting it around, also comes with an aux cord which means i can connect my ipod too. Overall great product and i’m super happy with it.

This is a must have, connected to ipad it makes music, lectures , anything, sound so much better, nice bass effect.

Nice little speaker but not as loud as last one i owned.

Connects easily to all my devices and the sound quality is good. Really pleased with my purchase.

Ideal for mobile sound especially good for the garden and travelling.

Great sound,very easy to use, having a case with it was great when i used it on holiday fits into devices so easy. Great value for money i love it would recommend anyone to buy it.

Unchecked as gone to santa for christmas.

Very good sound and arrived on time.

Reasonably priced and good sound. Boombar was recommended by colleagues in workplace who had already ordered and used one. Was a xmas present for my daughter (aged 19) who is very pleased with it.

Looks good, sounds good, perfect.

Really good quality, seen a lot of reviews saying it’s not the best. I think it’s excellet really happy with it.

Refurbished at under £5, absolutely no problems, arrived in less than 48 hours. Speaker arrived in immaculate condition, audio first class, battery life excellent. Update: feb 2018, in use daily and still going strong after a year.

I bought this for my daughter for christmas. Its easy to connect via bluetooth and is plenty loud enough for my budding pop star to sing along with. Don’t get me wrong, there isn’t much weight to the sound but for the money i am pretty pleased with it.

Amazing speaker, it connects really easily and has a great sound (it can go very loud)highly recommend.

Is it the best sound you can buy?. But for £20 its perfect for when i’m in the garden, washing the car or just wanting a portable speaker.

I chose the boom cube as i wanted something i could carry easily, even pop in my handbag to take round a friends, to the beach hut or just put in my kitchen to listen to whilst cooking etc. What a fab little thing – great sound, no wires, slick design. I would highly recommend for music on the go, and what a great price.

Comments from buyers

“Love it
, Awesome sound
, Great sound, easy to connect

Very good volume actually able to hear videos that are quiet on phone are louder through the speaker.

Works great, sounds good and lasts a long time.

Ive collected so many speakers over the years, wired and bluetooth. Ive struggled to find one that is small enough that you can take it travelling, without compromising sound quality, until i found the boom cube. The one i got is rose gold, everyone knows how in it is at the moment, and it matches the iphone rose gold device. If i was getting this for a male i would probably go for the gun metal option as an alternative. The product came packaged in a clear crystal box, this would work perfectly to keep and use to take your product in your case on holiday (no case included). Included is an aux cable, you can use this to make the speaker wired instead of bluetooth, a micro usb charging cable to charge your speaker, and a user manual (not that you need one)the speaker itself is about 7cm square all round, it looks bigger than this. The housing itself is aluminium, and the speaker grill runs from the front, all over the top and down the back of the speaker (like you can see in the images). The sides of the speaker are matching aluminium panels with the ks logo. One side of the speaker has the aux in, micro usb input, and on/off button (which lights up). The bottom of the speaker has rubber pads to stop it slipping depending on what surface it is on too.

Great little speaker – totally portable and good output too :).

He loves it and it has a very good sound.

Really happy with this purchase. Tiny enough to slip in my handbag yet with clear crisp sound provided you don’t go all out on the volume. Connected to my note 8 in a flash.

Amazing quality, even better price. Great for when you’re just chilling at home listening to music.

4 stars because there is no volume control on the cube. Plays about 3 hours and loud enough for the kitchen and outside.

Not the best quality sound but good quality for the price. Perfect for around the house.

Really powerful for it’s size.

Great sound, super easy to link up to your phone, great price.

Bought for a gift a friend who absolutely loves it, it looks great and the sound quality is really good.

Fantastic sound, small enough for easy portability and produces a quality sound. Base is good, not tinny, easy to use and connect, good value for money.

Love the style and sound from my boom cube.

Excellent little cube, good quality & great to move around.

Great little speaker, finally got mine back from daughter.

This little box is great, so glad i bought it, well worth the prics.

I received my new kitsound boom cube speaker yesterday, and i’ve fallen in love with it. The packaging is very good quality, the speaker comes in a clear, solid box which makes it look really high end. You take the bottom of the case off and there is a handy little user guide tucked in there, as well as 2 cables, one aux cable to make the speaker wired and a micro usb cable to charge it. You could easily keep the packaging and use it as a storage case as it’s really good quality and easy to open/close. I went for the rose gold option, and the metallic colour is absolutely gorgeous, both trendy and very classy. I didn’t want a massive speaker in my lounge, and this one is small enough and looks so cute on my shelvesthe speaker was so easy to set up, it literally took me 20 seconds to connect it to my smartphone via bluetooth, and it was ready to go. I have had kitsound headphones before so was expecting the same sound quality, and i wasn’t disappointed. The sound quality is excellent, very clear and really impressive for such a small speaker. My budget was around £20, and i am so glad i decided to go for this speaker – it looks and sounds like a much more expensive speaker.I would definitely recommend it :-).

KitSound Hive X Bluetooth Portable Water Resistant Wireless Stereo Speaker – Nice amount of base

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.

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.

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. Here are the specifications for the KitSound Hive X Bluetooth Portable Water Resistant Wireless Stereo Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 20 W of pure expansive audio that will rival speakers double its size
  • Up to 20 hours of continuous play time on just one single charge
  • IPX6 water resistant rating; so a bit of rain won’t be a problem
  • Rugged design and sturdy build to enjoy your music, whenever you want, wherever you want
  • Plug in your phone’s USB cable to charge it, while still playing all your tunes

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.

This bluetooth speaker is great. The sound is amazing for a speaker that small and it can be quite loud at max volume. It’s quite heavy so it feels sturdy and won’t move from where you put it. The battery life is really good too. I’ve had it for ~3 months now and i had to charge it once even though i use it almost everyday for ~20 minutes. The only reason i’m not giving it 5 star is that there’s quite a bit of static noise at low volumes. It was quite bad with my galaxy s3, but even with a more recent phone (htc one m8), there’s still some static. Once you turn the volume up it’s better but it might be more annoying if you listen to quieter music. All around, it’s great and for the price, i can’t ask for a lot more.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent portable audio solution
  • Totally awesome.
  • Great value, great sound!

Only just received this and totally blown awaythis is an initial opinion and i will update accordingly after a few days. Bought this item mainly for streaming music via my echo dot and it paired within seconds. The build quality is top jolly, it looks and feels sturdy. The buttons are responsive and have a satisfying click when pressed. I have owned several speakers and this runs rings around everything i’ve ever heard before. It has a satisfying bass without being too heavy, mid range isn’t overpowering and treble is crisp and clear. Maybe reggae fans would like a little more bass but i find the balance perfect for a mix of music. (bass etc could easily be enhanced using an equaliser but i find it just fine). (i find that setting the speaker to max and setting the dot to 50% is more than adequate for use in a bedroom)haven’t tried using the input cable for wired reception yet not tried using the smart functions (google now) as i’m using it with alexa but will update review accordingly. Update:can only give top marks for this little beauty, it’s got brilliant, well-balanced sound that can handle everything from reggae to classical to speech really well. Reggae is particularly well presented with good bass whilst not being overpowering. As i write this i’m listening to bob marley in my back garden and the sound is sublime.

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.

This is my 2nd hive i’ve bought, my dad heard how good mine was and asked for 1 for father’s day. It’s a fabulous speaker for home/garden. I can have mine in bathroom while ipad in kitchen and it still picks up the connection perfectly.

Love this kit hive to play my music from phone to speaker. I only wished i had internet where i go so i can take it with me everywhere.

Small with a nice rubberised finish. Sound quality comfortably exceeds computer or phone speakers, but obviously not anway near hifi standard. A couple of niggles, there is some extraneous noise when music isn’t playing but is not obvious when music is playing. The other issue is that if you have more than one device paired it holds the pairing after the first device is shut down and refuses to connect to the second device. The first device has to be manually disconnected. This happens both on my speaker and my son in law’s. He in fact was on the verge of returning it as technical help at kitsound thought there was a defect.

My daughter is a pt instructor so needs a great quality sound, she is over the moon with the whole package. Very solid sturdy speaker with an amazing sound even when played loudly she previously used beats and said this system is just as good for a fraction of the price.

I’ve heard good sound quality from small speakers like bose, but at a price. I am amazed at the sound from this tiny, inexpensive unit. Rich base, delicate trebles, you can hear every finger pluck on a guitar. When it was first unpacked, naturally it needed charging. The initial charge took about 6 hours, not the 4 claimed. Bluetooth connected flawlessly to both my ipads, and i am now, via the ipads, able to stream music wirelessly from my imac computer in another room. The volume is more than adequate for an average room. Just a tip – if you use an ipad or similar, disable the keyboard clicks from your tablet or else it sounds through the speakers.

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% .

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%.

Stunning sound from such a small, yet solidly constructed speaker. I don’t normally opt for such things as portable speakers as i’ve always assumed small footprint devices just cannot produce full bodied sound – guess i was wrong. I’ve yet to have any bluetooth connectivity issues with my oppo find 5, note 4 and ipad3 that i use this with and it’s been a great performer since i purchased it.

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

I wasn’t expecting much at this price (£38) but it’s reassuringly heavy, worked perfectly out of the box and sounds much better than something this size should ever sound . It’s never going to have a lot of bass but there’s much more than i expected and the sound is reasonably well balanced, not sounding too sharp in the mid range and having sufficient treble to sound natural but not shrill. I use it for watching catchup tv on my iphone and ipad and for this it’s ideal, could also be used in the bathroom as it’s battery powered and so suitable for listening to music in the bath/shower.

The best speaker i’ve ever bought. I first learned about kitsound when i bought a pocketboom months ago, so i decided to upgrade to a top tier speaker from the same producer. I’m 100% satisfacted with my purchase, the speaker works great everywhere and gives his best in small and medium rooms: when volume is max you can’t hear people that are talking unless they’re close to you.

This speaker surprised me as i thought it would be bigger than what it is. But when i started playing music out of it, the bass is rich and the sound is just fantastic. Great value for the price, highly portable and comes with all the cables you need and a handy carry bag. Very impressed, kitsound have done well with this product.

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.

When i open the box, i am surprised by the quality of the speaker and all the assessors that comes with the speaker. The speaker comes with a pouch for carrying the speaker around, a 3. 5mm aux cable to connect to device that do not have bluetooth connection, a micro-usb cable for charging the speaker. As i like to listen to music and watching movies a lot, i always wanted to have a high quality speaker to replace my laptop’s crappy speaker. The hive is an excellent speaker, it is very loud and it does not change the audio quality a lot when the volume is turned to the highest. Although, the hive does a good job with high volume, when the volume is low, there is a ‘windy’ noise as if there is a breeze blowing in the background. The sound quality is astounding, it has very good base and treble, so it is perfect for any music genre. Compared to other portable speaker around this price range, the hive must be the top of them all. I have been using this speaker every day since i bought it, i only need to charge it every 3-4 day, the battery was amazingly good, it can last for a very long time without needed to charge it.

KitSound Hive X Bluetooth Portable Water Resistant Wireless Stereo Speaker, Sound quality is great for Hive speakers

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.

I hadn’t actually heard of the brand before but this speaker is incredible. Even my audio snob boyfriend will be impressed by the sound and the build quality is impressive too.

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.

The speaker itself is a great little speaker for the price. The problem is charging it-the adapter doesn’t fit properly in the micro usb slot, it seems loose and i thought it was just mine but looking at some other reviews, it seems to be a common problem. I can usually only get it to charge by jamming it up against a wall and putting something heavy against the speaker but it’s recently stopped charging altogether. It’s a really unfortunate flaw because the speaker itself is great but actually the charging problem is so damn frustrating that i would avoid buying 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.

A brilliant mid range option with good sound quality and volume range. I’ve not been disappointed and would recommend to all who want to take the melody with them without hitting the wallet to hard.

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%.

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.

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.

This speaker surprised me as i thought it would be bigger than what it is. But when i started playing music out of it, the bass is rich and the sound is just fantastic.

He in fact was on the verge of returning it as technical help at kitsound thought there was a defect.

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.

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.

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. You save a fortune and get excellent quality.

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.

Before buying a bluetooth speaker i did a lot of research, i googled, asked friends, tried things in shops. I originally saw this speaker for sale in a supermarket, admittedly i was attracted by the pricetag, i presumed the higher price meant better quality. I ordered it here after reading other glowing reviews. The speaker arrived promptly, well packaged. Design: first impressions is that the speaker is smart and looks good, it’s compact and well designed. Functionability: the controls are simple, nfc tagging is useful and quick. The speaker paired easily with my mobile. Sound quality: warm, bassy and balanced. Makes such a difference from the tiny speakers on my phone. No distortion even at max volume.

KitSound Mini Buddy and Portable Rechargeable Universal Wired Speaker, Much better than advertised!

I needed a small cheap speaker for my raspberry pi set up as my monitor doesn’t have speakers. Surprisingly loud sound and decent quality. No complaints here for the money at all.

Nice and little to carry about.

I was a bit sceptical about what quality sound it will give but am glad i bought it as i am impressed with it. This is my first small portable speaker and the quality of sound is good enough for me to enjoy my music from my ipod classic. I liked it so much that i bought further two but different characters from elsewhere as they have sold out the ones that i want here.

Comments from buyers

“Great little bit of kit
, It’s everything I hoped for in a £5 novelty tiny speaker, and a bit more.
, Bargain and does the job nicely!

Great little product, gave great sound when used with a kindle.

Amazing sound for such a little thing really worth buying one.

Great little mini speaker, use mine at work with my ipod, sometimes tiring to have earphones in for hours at a time and can’t use bluetooth speaker with old school ipod. Sound can be amplified by hanging / placing it in different areas, small enough to be in my key ring and the battery life is good too.

I’m not sure what sort of magic these are made with. The sound is very good considering they are about the size of a ping-pong ball, the battery lasts over 5 hours at a decent volume and charging is very quick. It’s everything i hoped for in a £5 novelty tiny speaker, and a bit more.

I am extremely surprised at the clear playback and the loudness of this cute little speaker. Much better than i thought it would be, it’s absolutely fantastic; so much so i actually purchased a further 2 of these. So small it will fit easily into a pocket or bag. I can’t think of a single negative thing to say about this 8 ball speaker, only that it is much better than the one i had and much cheaper.

Good sound and great for travelling.

Bought a while back when this was cheaper but handy to have in my work bag for presentations.

A great quality mini speaker that can fit easily in a pocket. The design on the speaker is very good.

Good sound , battery life is not bad, small size.

I bought this as a christmas present for a friend as i have one myself and he won’t stop raving about it he really loves it and uses it all the time, the sound quality is next to nothing who knew so much sound could come from such a little speaker. These are great and they come in a range of designs so if this isn’t your style you can always choose another design.

Sadly the first speaker ball i bought was defective but when i mentioned this to the seller they were nice enough to send a replacement free of charge. The replacement speaker was amazing, it was loud and the design was super cute.

KitSound Invader Universal Portable Mini Speaker : Perfect mini speaker and well worth the money

Decent battery life, very loud. Sound quality is ok for a 5£ speaker. I was surprised by the bass.

Good sound and go loud enough for my needs.

Excellent sound quality, small and lightweight and you can link them together too. Really nice sound and the battery once charged lasted much longer than others i have tried. Great and for a really good price too.

Great for travelling around with my tablet.

  • very good, reliable little speaker. looks great too!
  • convenient quality
  • Persevere- it’s worth it

  • Collapsible for portability

I baught this for my satnav on my phone for my car. My car is old and noisy + i like to listen to my radio above conversation level. This speaker does more than i actually need with ease. The volume is brilliantly loud. You can even charge and plug your phone at the same time.

Wouldn’t go on holiday without it.

Bought this to go camping with. It’s so small that i really wasn’t expecting anything amazing but it is really fantastic. Bass is great, you can feel the little thing resonating. Going to get another one cause you can link them.

Amazing little speaker, i use it at work after hours to entertain the staff whilst we close shop or for general use at home. The quality is amazing, it’s so easy to put away and it’s so light it barely adds weight to your bag. It’s so cute and for something so small it’s so powerful. The battery seems to lasting forever too, i’ve had it for at least 2 weeks and i’ve not had to charge it once yet.

For a small speaker like this i was honestly so so impressed with it. We used this in hospital so we could have music and it was louder than my laptop. I love it and i am so glad i purchased it.

Took me a while to work out the instructions. The symbols for the on/off and volume controls aren’t the bits you press. You press on the coloured wavy line below that. Also need to hold down the on button for a while. Once mastered however it’s really good for boosting my phone’s volume enough to hear audio books on the motorway. My car is too old to have a connector.

Brilliant small but big sound.

Very very pleased did not expect the sound quality to be this good but wow, would have been happy paying full price well worth it.

Its good to share your music with people that are with you.

Knew about the great quality this little guy is capable of in sound, as a friend of mine had bought one in a supermarket. It was the last one, and they never re-ordered (their loss), that’s why i ordered from amazon. Advantages:- very small, you can close it by pushing it down and twist it, which is how i prefer to keep it when not using, so dust can’t get inside- looks great. I wanted to buy in another colour but black was cheaper – honestly, it looks even nicer than on photos- sound quality can be increased when opened up- did not even have to charge it up before first use. Workes like magic ever since, although i don’t use it that often. – someone here commented that sound gets even better when you have at least two – so that’s my only regret now. Maybe i’ll get a little buddy for this one later on. Honestly, for this price, this is a gift. (okay, just one: the user’s manual – for some reason – will not mention how to turn it on. Just keep the power button pushed down until you see the light, that’s all.

Appears well made, good sound quality but it is not loud enough even with its own volume setting at maximum. The i-phone is louder albeit with less bass.

A cracking little speaker with great sound. . So pleased with it ive bought another [although its gone up £4 since i bought this one highly recommend. ]

Brilliant once you get it to work. Instructions should tell you that you need to hold done the on/off key for three seconds to turn it on and off.

Really impressed, easy to carry, easy to use and love that you can add more to a circuit for even better sound. Amazing price, i’ll be getting more.

Dinky, good sound for the size, very pleased.

I actually sent my first one back thinking it was faulty but didn’t realise you have to hold the on switch down to turn it on. I got it right the second time though. Sending it back was no problem i just felt a bit silly when i realised my mistake. It has a very good sound for the size of it and looks really cool.

Pretty good output from these little guys. Great compact speaker for the price.

KitSound Reunion Bluetooth Wireless Bookshelf Studio Speakers – Perfection.

Amazing sound quality, especially for price.

  here’s a quick review of the kitsound parallax powered stereo speaker system. These little bookshelf speaker pack a 30w rms per speaker and feature bluetooth, rca/photo and optical inputs so they’re ready for virtually any device to be hooked up. They come with a remote, interconnecting cable, 3. 5mm jack to phono cable, power cables and instructions. A great choice for someone looking for a great set of speaker where you don’t need an amp, perfectly suited for my little dj setup. Check out the video for a more detail overview.

So far i am very impressed with these speakers. I have yet to test all the features but i can confirm the sound quality of them is great. I was torn between buying these and buying a pair of speakers with a subwoofer. I chose these because of limited desk space and as far as i can tell the bass on them is impressive. There isn’t much i can fault with it. If i had to, i would say the supplied rca cable seems to attract slight interference, i would recommend buying a higher quality rca cable to over come this. Also the bass and treble controls can be tricky to set because you are unable to see what they are set to compared to a traditional dial. The choice of different connections make these speakers very versatile. At the moment i use them for pc and consoles, the volume and bass make them brilliant for gaming.

What is the point in paying the premium for the big brands when small brands deliver equally outstanding performance at fraction of cost nowadays for speakers. So far, i am so pleased with the speakers – simply fabulousi really like the minimalist approach to the packaging, very simple, no fuss. Suppose, this reflects their approach to their product, focus on what is important- delivering high quality product but no so much on non-essential items, such as packaging. Having said, it does not mean, they have neglected the aesthetic side of product design. The speakers are pretty slick and gives you the feeling of it is serious stuff. It is not difficult set up, but you will probably need the manual to guide you through, it took me about 10 mins. Once it is set up, believe me, you will love the performance of these two beasts, as you will have a true cinematic experience. Did not even have to turn it to full volume, half way through, i could already feel the floor vibrating. Could not be happier with the product, considering the cost. As i use it primarily for tv, i just connected it directly using aux cable they provided.

Great warm sound and they work perfectly with the echo dot as they come on automatically ( when left on standby ) when you talk to alexa.

Got a pair of these to go in my new kitchen extension so we could listen to a little bit of music while cooking, have been completely surprised by how good they are and now the kitchen is more of a dance floor than for cookingso, who loves them. My wife, my kids , even the guy who just built the kitchen is now after a pairthey have excellent connectivity (bluetooth , optical, rca) my pair have only been tested on bluetooth and with an iphone 7 i get about 6-7m with no breakup in quality. Its nice to have the bass / treble controls on them as from most handheld devices you can’t adjust anything so this is definitely a plus point. We’ve mostly been listening to more ‘dance’ music (trance, breaks etc) and this does sound fantastic on them. They have a nice round bass response so this style of music is catered for well :)we used to use a single speaker system (no names mentioned) and its so much better having the stereo imaging on these – brings a lot of the tracks to lifethese are fantastic for the money, really easy to use and connect to, however, it is worth noting that they connect to each other with a proprietary cable and connector (its about 1. So , all in all, what a fantastic pair of speakers for the money :).

  • Perfection.
  • Kitsound have amazed me once again!
  • Great value, quality product

Love, love, love these speakerssetting up the speakers was a lot easier than i expected. The instructions were simple and easy to go by which was great. I like that there was a small step by step guide with images to show you how to do it which made set up really quick and easy. The outer packaging was aesthetically pleasing, and after taking the speakers out i was impressed with the quality of the make. It goes perfectly in my lounge, and although the speakers are fairly heavy, they’re not difficult to move around. I use them for my tv but i love that i can connect my phone through bluetooth which is completely hassle freei’m really impressed with the sound system. The bass is perfect and no matter how loud you play your music the sound doesn’t break or crackle. I’m more than happy with the quality of it. Would 100% recommend to anyone.

I opted for these as they give the old school hi-fi experience without all of the clutter of amps etc. Having two tidy self contained units is ideal when struggling for space like myself. One great thing about these is the range of inputs. I usually use them with the bluetooth connection to my smartphone, however the optical input can allow me to run these into the back of my tv leaving the rca spare for my laptop. Nfc pairing is also a nice feature however as my iphone does not support this it is a bit redundant in my case. Out of the box you get both master and slave units, connecting cable with threaded connections (seems really tough), both uk and eu power cables, rca cable, optical cable, remote control and a user manual. All items individually wrapped and protected nicely in transit. A flat black finish with dark grey glass fibre cones look awesome, very stealthy. The remote is small but has everything you need. Input selection, track control (bluetooth mode only), volume control, bass adjustment as well as treble adjustment and pause. A reset button is also included allowing you to flatten the eq and start again. A suggestion for ks would be the ability to store a few presets for the eq once created by the user. Out of the box these sound great, i could have gone for larger units however the 4 inch drivers sound nice and tight on bass kicks whilst the tweeters produce some really nice crisp highs.

After previously owning a portable speaker by kitsound (hive) that sounded amazing i brought these with high expectations and they delivered. The only downside is that you have to point the remote directly at the master speaker.

 these speakers are insane. Overjoyed with the quality in both the audio and the build of these speakers, especially for the price i paid for them. To think the bose soundlink mini ii is currently more expensive is just crazy. With speakers this size, you always expect a lot of bass, and most brands don’t struggle with this, but the difference with these. The ability to reach high volumes without losing any audio quality what so ever and the balanced audio is just incredible. I have a friend who owns the q acoustics bt3 bookself speakers, and personally prefer these over them. More bass with the parallax and more ‘room filling’ without failing with the higher notes. The design is a lot more pleasing as well, as these just settle nicely into my lounge. Bought for my tv, not a huge fan of soundbars. But you can connect up via aux or bluetooth.

Excellent pair of speakers, great sound and a full range of options for connecting to many different music outputs. Also good value for money at least £25 cheaper than local retailers.

Works great, for low cost bt speaker the sound is pretty good. Enables me to listen/radio to music from my phone.

I bought this for my partner and we both use it at home. It’s wonderful when you’re working and you want to listen to some music without using headphones.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good, simple product at a good price
  • Best speaker I’ve ever had
  • Great speaker

Brought this due to it being recommended by a family member. By far the best speaker i’ve ever had. Fantastic sound, loud without the vibrations or ‘tingy’ sound. Well worth the money, especially considering how inexpensive it is compared to the big brands- yet performs just as good, if not better.

This speaker is probably the best the sound is incredible worth the money.

The most stylish speaker out there. Decent sound, amazing price – ’nuff said.

Pros: decent sound, very easy to connect to and operate, good battery life, good price. Cons: will not go beyond a moderately high noise level. No noise control on boombar- has to be controlled on source device. Overall: great, simple product. Good enough for me cooking in the kitchen and when outside sunbathing, picnic etc. I connect it my phone via a phono cable for max hassle free operation.

Excellent product for the price easy to connect seems to have good battery life nice carry pouch.

Great sound and reasonably priced.

If you like to hear the bass it’s brilliant.

As a keyboard and piano player, i have a gift of listening to music and playing it. I play by ear and i am very picky about the sound quality and a slight muffle destroys the music. This speaker is amazing and every sound is crystal no vibration randomly. I can hear every instrument. Well impressed for the money.

Pros: great audio, good high volume, comes with pouch to carry around in and great price. Also good wireless range as i left it on the 3rd floor in my house and i was downstairs and worked fine. Cons: on certain songs it may go cut out and go quiet, but i think it’s because it may not have been able to pick up some of the songs audio (as in the instrumentals, such as a drum beat). But can be fixed by increasing the volume.

Arrived very prompt linked up to my music very easily even my grandson could do it. The sound quality is brilliant would recommend this product. Easiest 5 stars i’ve ever given.

Really pleased with the sound and ease of use of this product thank u.

I have left it on charge for many hours and still no charge, the red light turns on but turns off after 5 seconds by i’m sure it’s onlyoccurred with me and that (by reading other reviews) it’s a great product. Following this i have had great response from the seller and he is sending me a new unit. Nice honest sellers who are selling a great product.

I purchased this speaker after borrowing my friends as i thought it was superbwhen the speaker arrived i was very impressed with the packaging, it made it look like i had spent triple the money on it. The speaker comes with a handy pouch to carry it, usb charging cable and a 3. 5mm jack cable to give the option of connecting my phone with the cable instead of bluetooth. The speaker is very light and looks great.It is so easy to use; it connected first time with my iphone and with my friends android phone. The sound quality is great, i was surprised at how loud the speaker can go, and the sound was still crystal clear with no distortion even with music that has a heavy bass line, it is so easy to transport, i took it to a picnic in the forest and everyone raved about it. I have purchased bluetooth speakers in the past for double the price and they were nowhere near the standard of the boombar +. Overall, if you are looking for a light, modern bluetooth speaker with high quality sound this is perfect.

I bought it to my little nephew and he’s love it.

Excellent sound quality for the price. Use it for streaming tracks from my iphone.

Great for camping and around the house.

KitSound BoomBar Universal Portable Rechargeable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker Compatible : A present – but my daughter is very happy with it

She wanted a speaker to attach to her mp3 player when she was in the bath. It works on bluetooth and cable. It sounds pretty good from outside the bathroom and she seems pleased with it, so i guess its working fine. Battery seems to have a good life too.

If you are after a portable speaker for the home then this is it. Really pleased with this product. Looks smart and includes a carry case. The battery life is superb and sound quality, for a small speaker, is excellent. No, it’s not going to be any good for a street party but for music around the home, garden and on days out, this does the job really well.

This is the second one of these i have bought. The sound is really good for such a small speaker, the bluetooth connection is easy to set up and just seems to work even at quite a distance across the house from the phone. The battery life is great and it comes with a handy carry case that i keep the usb charging cable and line-in cable in. Being able to wire it directly to the headphone socket is handy too as i use this to get decent sound out of my laptop too.

Very happy with this for £12. This is for people who want to attach a radio using the aux cable. If the radio uses the earphones as an aerial then it still needs an aerial when plugging in the aux cable in place of the earphones. The aux cable does indeed act as the aerial but unfortunately the boom bar interferes with the signal. I did test the radio with another set of speakers i have and had no problem.

  • aux,bluetooth,long lasting speaker
  • Great as long as you don’t want to play your phone/MP3 radio through it.
  • Amazing for the price! Take that into account

KitSound BoomBar Universal Portable Rechargeable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker Compatible with Smartphones, Tablets and MP3 Devices – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Bluetooth and line-in connectivity so you can connect more devices
  • Passive radiator for extra bass
  • Hands-free function for taking calls, and in-line microphone
  • Up to 20 hours of music play time and a charging time of just three hours
  • Hear your music from up to 10 metres away

Brilliant little speaker, very good sound for such small and low priced unit. Very pleased and would highly recommend it.

This is a really easy to use light speaker i recommend. Might wanna make sure you dont drop it at the beach just fyi.

The seller was very accommodating of a postal mixup and re-sent the product immediately, which i greatly appreciated. The product itself is great as a small, portable speaker: clear sound quality and comes with charging cable, input/output lead, stand and case. Very easy to use both via bluetooth and with the cable, which i was surprised to see that the company had provided. Thoroughly impressed and would recommend this seller to friends.

This is a really good little speaker for the price – decent volume and nice tone. Comes in a carry case for you to store 2 x cables and instructions for charging. Not my favourite colour but i don’t care cos this little speaker is just what i’ve been looking for. Very happy, would recommend for sure.

My dad bought one at £20 and i was impressed with the ability at that price. I then bought one for £14 and just seen them selling as low as £10. People who rate this as poor expect way too much for their money. If you want high quality, loud and bass filled audio, buy a complete hifi for £1000 or more. If you want a cheap and cheerful portable bluetooth speaker that is so cheap you could argue it’s disposable and dont expect it to be a mind blowing aural experience, yet good enough to be an upgrade from your phone speaker, get one.

Battery last days,great sound,handy,good quality and it can be plugged to the tablet or a phone through aux cable which i think make the battery last even longer although the battery is replacable and tiny comparing to the long hours of playing music. I wish on and off button was not that close to the aux and power input as while plugged in its hard to turn it on or off. . Otherwise its great, best from all the speakers we had.

KitSound Voice One : Great quality sound and a good looking unit with Alexa

This is a great idea, lovely sound, a great speaker built in. The trouble is it doesn’t hear you very well, you have to shout at it. The standard amazon alexa is better by far, if they could make this with a hearing aid it would have got 5 stars. Unfortunately i returned mine, swapped it for the genuine article.

1 year on and still works amazing with great sound quality, certainly fine for a medium size room.

Pros — audio quality is very good- set up onto wireless home network is a cinch with the smart-phone app- works well with lots of streaming services such as amazon music and spotify- retro styling is very attractive and build quality is robust- came with multiple power cables for different countries and a remote control with battery included- seemed to pick up me saying ‘alexa. ‘ very well despite volume of the music playing- takes advantage of all the options open to you with alexa – e. News briefs, weather reports, what’s on at your cinema etc. Cons — only bass and treble are controllable via a smart-phone app – there is no high/mid/low equaliser- boot up time is quite slow – takes a long time to reconnect to the wifi if you have had it switched off- given how the speakers are built into the sides and the bass comes out of the back, there is only one way to ‘mount’ this speaker and that is to have it standing tall as shown in the picture – this very much limits your options as to where to locate it and indeed if you tuck it into a corner you’ll ruin the stereo effect- alexa misunderstood my commands time and time again – to begin with this was quite funny but it soon stopped being a joke and just got irritating- the little remote control has poorer build quality than the speaker itself and felt a bit cheap in comparison.

First up: i can understand peoples’ issues with getting set up: – installation was a bit of an issue, you see the problem is that like many wifi services, eg wemo, and this speaker, it relies on you connecting to the new devices’ own “hotspot” to set it up. Fine in theory but for one android specific issue – android is “clever” and will by default disconnect from any wifi network that it detects can’t access the internet, in favour of one that it can. So installation goes like this typically:- click wifi networks on android, choose kitsound speaker. – android goes back to your household router. – click kitsound speaker again- android goes back to your household router- tell android to forget the household router- click kitsound speaker again- android refuses to connect to it- try a new phone- android finally connects but complains there’s no network- you try the app, then realise android is actually using 4g now and so still can’t see the speaker- turn off 4g- finally the app can see the speaker. And you don’t get that half hour back. But that’s pretty much what goes on. Same happens with wemo, same with any of these devices that connect this way.

  • Amazingly good
  • Great value alternative to the mainstream brands
  • Very good sound – very pleased

This is an impressive looking speaker but did not quite deliver on its promise. It arrived in a large box containing; the speaker itself, mains leads covering uk, europe and the us, a 3. 5mm aux cable, a remote control and instructions which are rather vague and rely on the app to set the speaker up. You will also need the amazon alexa app to set up this functionality. Setting the speaker up raised an issue as you have to connect to the speakers own wifi hotspot. Using android it will by default disconnect from any wifi network which can’t access the internet which is not mentioned in the instructions or the app and you may need to disable mobile data to stop it dropping back to 4g if using a phone. You also need to remove the isolating tab on the remote control to allow it to work. This allows you to mute the speaker, change the volume, or manage sources. The speaker is quite large and impressive looking from a distance but the speaker doesn’t quite as solid when you pick it up. It has a fabric cover with all the controls at the front.

Good value speaker, ideal for a small room and works well with alexa albeit she does seem a bit more attentive to the tv compared to the amazon dot she replaced in the bedroom.

Rating this device is a little tricky – if i was to consider sound quality alone it would rate a three or three and a half. But it isn’t just a speaker. To me it feels like a personal assistant, and it’s really quite useful at times. If sound quality is your main concern, and you’re hoping for a stunning hi-fi quality device then you’ll be disappointed, and i recommend you go elsewhere, preferably to your local hi-fi dealer. A small, plastic, inexpensive thing like this will never be able to match the ability or sound reproduction of a real and much more expensive dedicated hi-fi speaker like – for instance – my set of monitor audio’s. The sound quality of the kitsound is variable, and it seems to depend on what one plays. I’ve fed mine with a lot of different sources and the results are pretty mixed. For instance, i was surprised by how good it sounds playing classical music, which is delivered incisively, with clarity and bight. But feed it anything heavy and complex and it becomes a little unstuck. White stripes was really too much for my sample unit, which was unable to resolve the complex harmonics and layered sound effects.

Very nice speaker – getting the echo working was a bit tricky as i did not have the location setting on. Once i set this on my phone where i’d downloaded the app. To it was only about 5 minutes to complete the installation.

Brilliant speaker but didn’t realise alexa was limited.

Having spent a couple of days looking at various speakers. I was left deciding between a sonus or kitsound must say i not disappointed. Alex was easy to setup and the mic can be turned off when you don’t want to be monitored. The sound is great the speaker spends most of its time on half volume much more and the neighbours complain.

Good looking piece of kithave set this up to control my heating. My lights and 2 sockets the sound i think is second to to noneaux connected to my surround sound fills the room all with voice control. Download alexa and kitsound app follow instructions. . Easy connection all automatic wifi blutooth aux simpledownside. Remote i did not receive one in my package. Perhaps they will send me one?????.

Perfect and with great sound quality. The column is super responsive, easy to set up well with alexa’s application. I’ve never had a problem setting up skills with third-party apps to control the devices by voice.

Bought this after reading other reviews. It has a good deep bass and plenty of volume. However the amazon echo has a much cleaner and clearer sound.

I’ve been running a squeezebox system for about 10 years or so, but slowly the hardware is starting to fail. This was bought as a replacement/combination for the squeezebox boom and echo dot in the kitchen. First impressions are “nice packaging” and “it’s a bit bigger than i expected”, however it’s not excessive and the volume knob is nice and tactile. I’m pleasantly surprised to say that it can replace the two devices i was using previously. The sound is less bassy than the boom, but it sounds a lot better than the echo dot by itself so despite being a bit thin for my liking, it’s acceptable for the kitchen and can make itself heard above usual kitchen sounds. Setting up the speaker itself was easy with the kitsound app – though there’s also a webpage that allows it to be configured when you connect to the setup wifi network. The app (on ios) allows streaming of your itunes music collection (though nothing in icloud) and a few other services. You also use the app to switch alexa into uk english mode and get the “right” voice back. The speaker contains a wiimu linkplayer implementation and as such has airplay built in. Supporting chromecast audio as well might be useful for android owners.

Great product works well, nice sound.

I bought one for my living room and one for my bedroom. It took me a few days to figure out how to get the multi-room working but now it’s all set up it’s fantastic. The sound from them is really crisp and clear and it’s really easy to link to spotify on my devices. Only downside is that i’ve got the speaker near the tv so sometimes alexa will turn on music, etc. Because of dialogue in whatever i’m watching.

The little plastic tag with the brand name on it fell off as i took this out of the box, which didn’t inspire confidence in the quality control. The box in question was diagonally cut, and was certainly eye-catching – i care much more about the contents, personally; i’ll be throwing the box away so it doesn’t really add any lasting value. Before i deal with the technical side of connecting the speaker, i’ll say that i found the sound pleasantly engaging: at low levels it is light and slightly treble-led, but when turned up, a pleasing bass comes into play. I wasn’t very impressed with the omnidirectional sound – it felt like mono to me. It would be better to buy two of these and get them playing in stereo pairing. Up to eight can be used in synch, all in different rooms if you like. Volume can be controlled with the remote control provided, which is small but feels well made (cr20 battery included). The speaker has an inbuilt amazon alexa feature whivh works well. I fail to see the attraction personally, but it seems to be very popular for some reason. Connecting to your wifi is easy, unless you use your mobile phone as your hotspot when at home, like me.

I got this 2 pair up with the rest of my speakers. But its does not support multiroom.

This is brilliant — when you have managed set it up. The sound is good, and alexa’s skills are impressive. However — one big snag is that you cannot set it up without the kitsound app to connect to wifi. You cannot download the app with windows (we have a windows 10 laptop) or with amazon fire tablets. The app is available with ios or android, onlywe had to beg a friend with an ipad to install it for us. Now it has connected to our router, but as we still do not have the kitsopund app, we are unable to update it. For a good piece of kit, it seems very shortsighted that the app needed to install it is only available through ios or android.

Very impressed with the setup, features and superb sound quality. I had intended to purchase a much better known brand, until i heard a sound comparison and looked at the fantastic connection options. I purchased a pair and have them set as right and left stereo channels in a large room.

 having owned an echo dot since it’s launch i was already familiar with alexa capabilty but you can’t use it as a speaker in a decent size room. This however solves the problem, a bookshelf style speaker with great sound, alexa, and at a good price point. Out of box set up was easy, there was a software upgrade but instructions were easy and clear to follow. I had it set up quickly and linked to my home wifi. The sound is the big difference, it easily fills a room and i was only at half volume or so. It looks good, very contemporary and easy to know that alexa is listening by changing light colour on the front of the speaker. (it is easy to turn off to if needed).

I used to have an amazon echo. I loved it, but the sound quality really let it down. It was fine for everyday stuff, but when i wanted to use it to listen to music a bit louder it really struggled. I wanted to upgrade the sound quality, and was considering splashing out on an apple home pod when they come out… but then i saw the voice one. All the alexa functionality of the echo, but with better sound – soldi have set mine up in the kitchen, mainly for listening to music while i cook, so the nano-coating feature is great. I gave the jamie oliver ‘skill’ a go to give me a recipe to follow, which was really fun. A small criticism i have of the speaker is that it doesn’t support 5ghz wifi networks – so i had to fiddle with the settings in my router when setting it up. All sorted now, but a bit of a headache at the time when i just wanted to start using iti had no problems connecting the speaker to both my iphone and my girlfriend’s samsung galaxy, and it’s great that we can listen to music from both apple music through the ks player app, and spotify. All in all though, the voice one is fantastic – can’t believe i got such a great sounding speaker for such a good price. Would happily recommend the speaker at this price even without the alexa functionality, so the fact that it’s a smart speaker is amazing.
