Product overview

• 1 W output with passive radiator for extra bass
• Bluetooth V2.1 technology lets you connect your smartphone wirelessly
• 3.5mm stereo jack connects your MP3 player, tablet or PC
• Built in microphone for taking hands free calls
• Rechargeable battery keeps the music going for 3 hours

Available in range of vibrant colours, the Kitsound Pocketboom has a big sound crammed into a small cylinder. A 1 W speaker gives impressive projection, especially when placed on a resonant surface like a table. Frequencies start at 100Hz giving a well-rounded bass tone suitable for all genres, making this speaker a great choice for any music lover.

How long will it take to charge and how long can I use it for?
Due to its small size, the Kitsound Pocketboom wireless speaker only requires an hour and a half of charge time from a USB charger. Running at 80% volume will playback your audio for up to 3 hours before requiring a recharge.

Is it wireless and if so what is its maximum range?
iPhones, Android smartphones and Windows smartphones can connect wirelessly to the speaker using a Bluetooth connection. Once paired you can stream audio and receive hands free calls up to 10m away. No wires means your speaker can go anywhere where you go.

What if I don’t have Bluetooth on my device?
Connect with a 3.5 mm jack connection to the line input on the speaker to enjoy great sound on your tablet, laptop, PC or MP3 player.

How loud is this speaker?
The Kitsound Pocketboom has a single 1 W speaker which performs great with middle to low frequencies. If you prefer more bass, a passive radiator helps boost these tones. You can enhance the sound further by placing the speaker on a resonant surface, such as a desk, to help add even more bass.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality, questionable with WiFi To start with the good, the sound quality on this device is superb. It packs in an incredible amount of Bass for such a little product, and sounds good across its entire range of volume outputs. Quiet or loud, it sounds fine. The range when using Bluetooth is also remarkable, I am often able to stick it in my pocket and walk all over the house without it losing connection or degrading in any way. Battery life is also good, especially when kept to lower volumes. This all being said, there is one terrible flaw I keep running into with this product. Whilst it works fine with downloaded music files, such as those on iTunes, it simply does not work with YouTube videos or with apps such as iPlayer or 4 catch-up. You start up the video and within 30 seconds the internet connection will fail, not just on the app, but on everything on the tablet/phone until you reset the connection. Whilst I cannot guarantee it is the speaker causing this and not something to do with my router for example, I can say that I have encountered this problem when the speaker was connected to my phone, on my tablet, and again on my laptop. I have found a few other reviews on other websites as well speaking of similar problems. So all in all, superb as a speaker. When it works. 3/5

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor sound Set up via blouetooth is easy, but whether playing it via a smart phone or iPad the sound breaks up su much that it is not worth listening too. Will be taking it back for a refund.
