Whether it’s your first year as a freshman blasting out predrink tunes, or your final year when you have no excuses left and need to do some real studying, music is a huge part of student life.
We know what university is like (trust us, we’ve been there!) and we know how noisy roommates can be your best friend when you want to let loose… and your worst enemy when you want to study.
And we know that when it comes to audio, “small” is your best friend in a cramped room full of students. So we have lots of great compact, high-quality audio designs to get you ready for one of life’s biggest adventures.
So here’s a few suggestions of how to “Deck out your Dorm”, so that you are always ready to either shut out the world, study outside, or crank up the tunes to the max…..before 11pm of course.
For party animals and getting ready
All our Bluetooth speakers pump out impressive sound, and are perfect for audio-decking your room and setting the party mood. But it’s also about looks when it comes to your student digs, and we have plenty of daring designs to pick from, each ready to suit your chosen “decor”.
The lightweight Hive X for instance looks great, sounds great, and comes with a 20 hour battery life and real power for its compact size. Plus it has a water resistant rating, so you don’t have to worry about your clumsy roommate spilling their tea.
Feeling retro? Then you might prefer the BoomBar 2+, our boombox-inspired modern speaker with 20 Watts of big sound. If you prefer extra bass, then check out the Slam 2, with its built-in bass reflex and enhanced passive bass radiator.
For chill days and movie nights
For those that take sound seriously, the Reunion Speakers are ideal to invite some friends round for a movie night. Real audiophiles will notice the difference when they hear the quality sound, plus they are wired and wireless, for when you need to create that surround sound experience.
When you just want to relax with your friends and listen to music together, the KitSound Five-Up Headphone Splitter lets you and your friends connect up to five sets of headphones. So you can share the music, without disturbing your room-mate as they cram in some last minute study time.
For tuning in and waking up
As difficult as it is, sometimes you actually do have to wake up for lectures. The XDOCK 4+ is a docking system perfect to charge your phone and get you out of bed in the morning (or afternoon!). Includes Bluetooth, so you can connect to your music, set dual alarms, and listen to radio all from your phone.
The Cube DAB is another handy little radio pal to keep by your side if you want to listen to the airwaves. Tune into your favourite radio stations every day, as well listen to your own tunes, and charge your phone when you inevitably drain it in class checking for updates….shhh.
For getting your head down and studying
We know what it’s like, even when you have asked, some people just can’t help being loud. The Immerse Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation technology are perfect for when you need to study in comfort and concentration.
The BoomCube Speaker is another great little study buddy, and will go with you anywhere when you need to quickly escape into the next room to get away from the chatter. Its compact design also means it can find a spot on the most-cluttered of desks!
For taking it outside and sharing the music
The Boxi MINI Bluetooth Speaker doesn’t just sound impressive for its deceiving size, it also comes with a braided toggle to attach to your bag … or to you. That makes it ideal for those that like some quiet time around the grounds, or who want to improve the audio in a presentation.
The Diggit Bluetooth Speaker is another great uni gadget. Perfect for when you want to relax with your friends on the grass outside for a few hours in-between lectures, its removable stake can pop into the ground anywhere where’s there’s grass or sand, keeping the audio flowing for all.
