Kitsound Hive User review

In all honesty, I was most pleasantly surprised when I tried this Bluetooth speaker out. I had tested some of the other alternatives and can honestly say that, even though the Bose had a richer bass response, I couldn’t really justify the price, and the rest just didn’t really offer anything extra. This is perfect.

I Bluetoothed to it from my phone and the sound was off the chart – amazing for something as small and lightweight as this device is. It can hold a charge for an incredible 8-10 hours. For anyone looking for a budget portable bluetooth speaker and not having to worry about dropping it, this is a great choice. Just try it, and be amazed like I was.
