Before purchasing this KitSound mini buddy bee speaker I was already a proud and happy owner of another KitSound mini buddy speaker that looked like a penguin. Since the penguin speaker was fantastic and I loved everything about it, I decided to get him a playmate. These mini speakers come with a buddy feature, which enables you to pair two or more speakers in a daisy chain and get bigger sound. I really wanted to try that feature, plus the bee speaker looked very cute. So I just HAD to buy it! I found an amazing bargain on it on amazon and bought it only for £3 ,which is 1/3 of it's original price. YAY ME!
The kit sound mini buddy bee speaker comes in a transparent see through box, which allows you to have a look at the speaker inside. The speaker itself looks like a round (fat) honey bee. It is black and yellow, with translucent white wings. Its dimensions are 3.9 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches and it weighs 1.8 ounces. On the top of the speaker there is a key ring attachment and also a 3 inch cable. This cable has a 3.5 mm dock for connecting the speaker to various devices. At the bottom of the speaker you get the On/off and the volume buttons. And a light that glows when the speaker is turned on. There is also a charging port for connecting it to the USB cable provided. The actual speaker is at the back of the little bee. On one side the speaker also has an input option, which is for connecting it with other speakers. The design of the speaker is very cute and funky.
****ITEMS IN THE BOX****
The box contains:
1. Kit sound bee speaker.
2. USB cable for charging.
****HOW TO USE THE SPEAKER****
The speaker is very easy to use .All you need to do is to charge it with the USB cable provided. After charging you can just plug in to the device you are using and turn it on from the button at the bottom. The light will tell you when it is turned on. Then you can just set the volume and enjoy the fantastic sound.
****HOW TO CHARGE AND THE CHARGING TIME****
The speaker comes with a USB charger that makes it very easy to charge. You can charge it from your laptop, your PC or from the mains using a charging socket or even from a car charger. It is charged fully in 1 to 2 hours .And the charge lasts for 4 hours, sometimes even 5. I think this charging time is fantastic.
****DEVICES THAT IT WORKS WITH****
The speaker has a 3.5 mm jack, which makes it compatible with a wide range of devices. So far I have used with my Ipod, Ipad, Iphone4, Sony Xperia S and even with my laptop. It makes it very easy to listen to music or watch videos. It is compatible with IPod, Ipad 2/3/4/mini, Iphone 3G/3GS/4/4S/5/5S/5C and android devices.
****FEATURES THAT I LOVE****
I really love the speaker and use it all the time. Here is list of features that I find really fantastic.
⦁ SIZE AND PORTABILITY:
The first thing I love about this speaker is that it is very compact and small. This makes it easy to use. Also this makes it possible for me to carry it around with me even if I am out and about. I can take it with me in my bag on my days out and easily carry it with me on holidays as well. There is a key ring attachment as well, which makes it even easier to carry it around with me.
⦁ LOOK AND DESIGN:
I love how Kit sound has designed the speaker to look like a bee. It is very adorable and cute. Instead of having a boring black speaker to use, I have a funky looking bee with me all the time. When I am not using it I keep it on my table beside my KitSound penguin mini speaker and they both work as very cute decoration pieces as well.
⦁ GREAT SOUND:
Despite the small size the speaker does pack a punch. Its sound quality is surprisingly good as well. It is amazing how such a tiny speaker can give such a loud and good quality sound. This makes it very practical while listening to music or watching videos and movies on my phone, Ipad or even my laptop. The sound quality of the speaker is brilliant as well. And it remains clear, without any distortion, even on the highest volume.
⦁ WORKS ON A WIDE RANGE OF DEVICES:
One of the best things about this speaker is that it is compatible with a wide range of devices. Its 3.5 mm jack makes it possible to work with almost any device that has a headphone/speaker input. It works with Ipod, Ipad 2/3/4/mini, Iphone 3G/3GS/4/4S/5/5S/5C, Android phones/devices and even with my laptop. So I don't need separate speakers for my various devices.
⦁ ON/OFF LIGHT:
There is a tiny light at the bottom of the speaker than glows when you turn it on. So I always know when it is turned on and can save the charging when not using it.
⦁ BUDDY JACK FEATURE:
A really fun and cool feature of this mini speaker is the buddy jack option available. The speaker can be connected with another Kit sound mini buddy speaker for louder and bigger sound. So if you have another buddy speaker or just any other speaker, you can connect it with this mini speaker in a daisy chain and enjoy better sound. This is one of the main reasons I bought this Bee speaker. I already had a KitSound penguin mini speaker and wanted to pair it with another mini speaker. I just connect the two speakers together and they work brilliantly, by producing really big sound. This just doubles the fun of the speaker.
Another good thing about the mini speaker is that it is rechargeable and does not require any batteries. The charging time is fantastic as well. This makes the speaker very economical and convenient to use.
So far I am finding the Kit sound Mini buddy bee speaker a lot of fun and easy to use. And there is nothing I dislike about it. It works perfectly well by itself or when I pair it with the KitSound mini buddy penguin speaker.
****OTHER DESIGNS AVAILABLE****
A great thing about KIT sound mini buddy speakers is that they are all shaped in to cute looking animals or different other funky shapes. If you don't like the bee shape, the same speaker is also available in many other cute designs like penguin, frog, pig, monkey, bear, panda, bomb, owl, bunny, devil, etc.
***MY RATING OF THE KITSOUND MINI BUDDY BEE SPEAKER IS 5 OUT 5***
