How long will it take to charge and how long can I use it for?
It takes just four hours to fully charge the KitSound Hive 2 portable Bluetooth speaker, and from this you’ll have a massive 12 hours of playback to enjoy your favourite music from anywhere.

Is it wireless and if so what is the maximum range?
Built-in Bluetooth V3 connectivity means you can wirelessly connect your Apple, Android or Windows smartphone with a range of up to 10 metres. This gives you the chance to listen to your music wherever you want.

Can I turn it up loud and still have superb sound quality?
The bottom of the speaker includes a passive radiator, which helps enhance bass frequencies and provide a deep and punchy bass. When combined with active drivers enhanced with a digital sound processor, middle and high frequencies will be loud and clear as well. These drivers have a combined output of 12W, giving you a big sound that’s ready to fill and room from a small package.

What if I don’t have Bluetooth on my device?
Thanks to a line-in 3.5mm jack connection on the side of the KitSound Hive 2 portable Bluetooth speaker, you can connect any non-Bluetooth devices that have an earphone output or line-out such as tablets, TVs, PCs and laptops and even MP3 players.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small speaker, but unbelievable bass! I have to say, this little bit of kit is value for money defined. If you're into bassy genres (hip hop myself), you'll love them. They're loud, hardly any tinny sounds and have got great bass for something so little. Great for gatherings at your house. Best budget bluetooth speakers on the market.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality sound considering the price I bought this for my daughter to use in her university halls of residence bedroom. Even playing it in a small car on the way up it was clear it wasn't a good quality speaker, and this was confirmed when played in the bedroom. TBH for that price you can buy much better. We returned it for a full refund.

Can I link more than one of these up to a Bluetooth device and run them in tandem? so for instance have one in each corner, linked to one output device?
