KitSound trio look stunning in Rose Gold

It is no secret that the gorgeous metal rose gold is taking the world by storm at the moment, especially in the fashion and audio world. We’ve seen it on the catwalks, Apple have chosen it as one of their limited edition colours, and people all around the world are choosing the precious metal for their wedding rings.

The rose gold trend has even extended to audio accessories, which means that you will be able to bring in hints of rose gold both into your outfits and into your home without going too overboard. There is no quicker way to kill a trend than to use it too much, and we love rose gold specifically because it doesn’t overpower everything else that you are wearing.

Here are the three top rose gold audio products that we are totally in love with right now:

This is the KitSound Boombar 2 in rose gold, an incredible speaker that has 10 Watts of power and up to ten hours of play time. You can either connect your device with the 3.5 mm cable or Bluetooth, and you can even use it as your hands free if you receive a call. This speaker looks fantastic in your home, and we love it.

RRP: £80.00

Sometimes less is more, and that is definitely proved by the KitSound Manhattan Headphones in rose gold. The delicate inclusion of the metal means that the headphones are never going to scream at anyone – instead, they are all about class and elegance. They are also packed with fabulous audio technology, with eighteen hours of play time and Bluetooth connectivity so you are not all tangled up with wires.

RRP: £34.99

Last but by no means least we have the KitSound Pocket Hive in rose gold. This speaker will be appearing in a winter issue of GQ, and it is easy to see why so many people are loving this. This speaker is only a couple of inches high, and comes with a hard shell carry case so it is incredibly portable. The passive bass radiator has been configured to maximise the depth and richness of sound, and the rose gold grill brings a twist to what is a well loved design.

RRP: £40.00

One slight problem with the Chromecast Audio

CQFeXYQWgAQggBt-350x200Google launched its colourful new update to the Chromecast yesterday, not one but two different devices. One of the new additions a lot of folks were getting excited about was that music streaming giant Spotify is finally supporting Chromecast. However, after explaining a more about the service today, Spotify say owners users the new Chromecast will be able to ‘cast music directly’ from a phone or tablet right away. The cloud this silver lining is wrapped around is only Spotify Premium subscribers will be able to send content to Chromecast Audio. I’m sure this will only effect a smaller percentage of Spotify users, and perhaps will help Google keep their Play Music as via option of Chromecast users in the future. However there are a fair few out there that will be a little glum about this stipulation.

First-gen Chromecast will need to wait for a firmware update enabling Spotify support first from Google. This is expected in the coming weeks.
