Since we are lucky enough to have with us the KingCom brand, it is with pride that we bring you a review of one of its gadgets, a new addition to Taragis’ family. We were able to see and evaluate the new KingCom Beehype Bluetooth Speaker and below’s what we have to say.
You’re with a group sound-tripping or practicing for a dance act and you’re using your phone as a music player, then suddenly comes the need to use your phone but you have to go rest room or somewhere else, but the problem is you don’t want your group to be interrupted listening to the music, so what would you do? Would you turn the music off, take your phone with you and let your friends stay put for quite some time or would you rather just not go to wherever place that is? Now, no worries, my friend. You can do better than that. Hype up! Because here comes the new KingCom Beehype Bluetooth Speaker, the perfect device for people like you! And even if you’re 10 meters far, the speaker and the smartphone would still be connected, and music is still being played and heard.
The KingCom Beehype Bluetooth Speaker is specifically made for outdoor use. One reason is because of the built-in clip that can be attached to anything a user would want it to fasten to. Another is its portability; it has a perfect weight, not too heavy and not too light, that one can put it in his bag and carry it with him anywhere. It appears a bit bigger than the usual wireless speaker but it’s still portable.
As far as the appearance is concerned, it is a rectangular-almost-cylinder-shape speaker with silicon case that comes in different colors, so one need not have to worry about dropping it for it’s designed for the adventurous people of the outdoors. Splashing water over it from any angle would also never be a problem because of its IPX4 water resistance feature. But one will have to remember that the speaker is not waterproof, it’s just water resistant, which means that it cannot be soaked into the water if you’re having a pool party or anything where water is present, but splashes from time to time is still acceptable.
On one side of the cylinder comes three buttons. The first one is the power button that takes a 3-second long press for the speaker to open. It also stands as Pause button and Bluetooth connectivity indicator. Above the said button is where the indicator lights are located. Its lights blink blue when pairing and stops once paired, then it blinks again when the music plays. Long-pressing the power button again would mean turning off the device. The second and third buttons are the Volume Up and Down. Said buttons also serve as Previous and Next Track controller.
The other end of the Beehype is where the USB cable for charging and the 3.5mm audio jacks are located. And aside from connectivity via Bluetooth, the speaker can also be paired with NFC-enabled smart devices by simply tapping your NFC-wireless device with the Beehype.
In terms of audio, the sound it yields is of high-quality. When you listen to it inside the room, the audio is very clear and vibrant. Though it’s a bit weak when it comes to the “bass” sound especially with the full volume on, it makes up for clarity. The lyrics of the songs playing ring out perfectly. Very low sounds, like those of whispers, are also heard flawlessly. However, songs which are so loud and super rock and eardrum-bugging aren’t played that spotlessly. As I have mentioned, there is a setback with the bass sound. It tends to distorts a bit when it’s at the maximum volume. But just lower down the volume and it will be perfect.
When the music is playing then suddenly a call comes, you can answer it through the speaker because it has a built-in microphone. The music will automatically fade out to give way to the call and when it ends, it will return back to the playlist.
The speaker’s battery (2,000 mAh) lasts up to 9 hours on almost full volume and we believe that it has a possibility of lasting for more hours if the volume is a bit lower. Charging time takes up from 3-4 hours.
With the unique design, audio quality and convenience I mentioned, getting a portable Beehype for my smartphone and my other devices is easy considering the excellent audio experience it offers. KingCom Beehype provides a unique combination of performance, convenience and portability not often found in other wireless speakers. Specifically, it offers high-quality audio with clear sound details, comes packed with various options, convenient to use and of course affordable.
