KitSound Hive Evolution review

 

Well balanced and solidly built, but the KitSound falls short of the best

Digs up decent levels of detail ; Mainly balanced presentation ; Well-built, solid aluminium chassis

We’d like more muscle – tauter bass and a bigger presentation ; Slight hardness in upper frequencies ; Up against talented rivals

It’s well balanced and well built, but the Hive Evolution lacks the audio reach and upper sweetness of the best around

Kitsound Hive review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Kitsound Hive is an extremely compact Bluetooth speaker with a distinctive honeycomb style. Kitsound isn't one of the biggest names in audio, but we've been impressed by its bigger speaker docks. Does the Hive carry on the good work at a smaller...

Kitsound Hive Wireless Speaker review

 

Portable music has been a hit, especially since Sony first developed their Walkman players and then Apple introduced their iPods. But usually these portable players require wired headphones for you to enjoy your music, or you had to plug them in to...

Amazing sound quality ; High volume ; Superior bass

You cannot do better for the money

It is true that there are much better portable speakers out there but this packs a punch for such a small speaker and the sound quality is much better than one would expect after reading this review. Some detail may be missed but if you are looking for...

Great bit of kit only one problem

 

I should have bought it months ago. Sound on my laptop was terrible with these speakers it's great. Loud enough for me all over my back garden. Last fo hours on one charge and the sound is great. Easy to set up use them with my phone, laptop and iPad.

Great sound for a small box

 

I previously used those tiny round ones, they were useless. This is much louder than I expected. I used it in the bath and where other speakers struggled to get over the noise of the extractor fan, this was so loud I had to turn it down! Easy to...
