KitSound Voice One with Amazon Alexa Review: The smart speaker you’ve been waiting for

KitSound Voice One Smart Speaker Amazon Alexa Review

KitSound unveiled today the voice-activated smart speaker with specialised audio quality, the KitSound Voice One smart speaker.

Developed in collaboration with Amazon, the Voice One combines the smarts of Alexa with KitSound’s audio expertise – for only £129.

The KS Voice One is a hands-free smart speaker that integrates Alexa, allowing you to play music from Spotify, Amazon Music or TuneIn, get the news and weather, control your smart home and answer your questions. With an added TLC audio boost from our KitSound engineers – it’s so much more than just a smart speaker.

Kitsound’s engineers have passionately crafted a nostalgic speaker that looks as good as it sounds. Ear-thumping power jumps from the full-range 20-Watt drivers, so you hear your favourite music in all its natural glory. The Voice One’s component-like sophistication oozes gorgeous sound with stunning clarity – making a statement anywhere you care to appreciate good music.

Blending the style of the past with the technology of the future, the Voice One features a stain-resistant Nano coated woven grill to protect against little splashes – perfect if you love listening to your music whilst you cook.

With built-in multi-room technology, you can connect up to 8 Voice One speakers together wirelessly. Stream your favourite playlists or connect an external music source to one of the speakers and re-distribute the sound to other speakers via Wi-Fi, allowing you to enjoy your music in every room – regardless if it’s on online or vinyl. Compatible with Spotify Connect®, hook your speaker up wirelessly to play the limitless catalogue of music and control your Voice One remotely through the App.

Alexa far-field voice recognition is activated by the Smart Source Pickup dual microphones that listen to you from anywhere in the room. The Voice One also comes equipped with a responsive remote control for you loud fanatics.

Alexa is the cloud-based voice service that powers Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. Alexa is always getting smarter — just ask and she’ll answer questions, order a pizza, read books, or even become your Personal Trainer as she leads your workout routines. With thousands of Alexa Skills, you can tailor your Voice One to match your lifestyle and meet your needs.

And do it all to the enviable sound of the Voice One’s dual-opposing drivers producing omnidirectional audio, giving a unique 360° listening experience. Close your eyes, open your ears and immerse yourself in the deep, warm, hi-fi audio that’s been carefully hand-tuned in our KS Lab – to give you the smart speaker that you’ve been waiting for.

“The brief for the Voice One was simple: a smart speaker that looks and sounds great in a package that won’t break the bank. I think we’ve nailed it. We’ve had a lot of fun on this project, and working with Amazon has been amazing, the product and marketing support from their team has been incredible and we’re looking forward to working with them again in the future!” – KitSound’s Chief Product Designer, Jordan.

“We’re excited to work with KitSound and bring Alexa to another great smart speaker,” said Jon Kirk, Director, Alexa Voice Services. “The Voice One combines KitSound’s audio quality with Alexa features customers love—you can play music, get the news and weather, control your smart home, or order a takeaway in the same way as with Amazon Echo. Just ask, and Alexa will take care of it for you.”
