Pure Jongo review

 

Not the ultimate in sound quality, but Jongo wins us over with its peppy character

Well built Easy set-up Big, enthusiastic sound Weighty low end Good price

Bass can be overpowering Multi-room from third party apps is limited

Pure has hit the spot with the Jongo system. It can’t match Sonos and Samsung for out-and-out sound quality, but its price means multi-room is an option for more people than ever before.

Pure Jongo S3 review

 

Large sound that belies its size ; Detailed ; Well balanced ; Well designed

A little unforgiving with poorer quality tracks ; Multiroom only available through Pure Connect app

Great sound, affordable multiroom smarts and 10 hours of wire-free portability make this little speaker a real gem

Pure Jongo S3 review

 

Can the Pure Jongo S3 bring wireless multi-room audio to the masses?

Battery-powered portability ; Price ; Connectivity

Gets lost in large rooms ; Fiddly Wi-Fi synching ; Multi-room limitations

Pure Jongo S3 review

 

When the Pure Jongo S3 arrived in the office we didn't quite get the point at first. A battery powered Bluetooth speaker is always handy, but we'd seen enough to know that if we're going to get on with them, they need to have a unique selling point....

Compact, stylish, lots of great features, good battery life

Sound quality lacks a certain something, fairly expensive

Our biggest beef with the Jongo S3 is that they're expensive, and don't really sound as good as some other Bluetooth speakers. There's nothing awful about the sound, it's just a little less rounded than most speakers and the low-end lacks.

Pure Jongo S3 review

 

This compact portable speaker has some big ideas. Not all of them pay off

Compact and portable ; Choice of mains or battery power ; Mostly easy to setup and use ; Sound quality at low volumes

No Spotify streaming ; Disappointing sound ; A bit pricey ; No wireless n

The Pure Jongo S3 wireless speaker promises the world, but doesn't quite deliver The Pure Jongo S3 is a great idea in theory, but we can't help but feel a little let down by it. The sound quality is disappointing - and the fact that you can only stream...

A relatively inexpensive introduction to multi-room streaming that you can unplug and take on the move

Pure Jongo S3

 

Move over Sonos - there's a new player on the music streaming scene. With the Pure Jongo S3, the British company is trying its hand at multi-room audio in your home that won't break the bank. Can this little streaming speaker change the way you listen...

The Pure Jongo S3 is a great little gizmo for the price, especially since it pulls double duty as a portable speaker away from the mains: if you just want a way to stream your music collection in one room or the garden, this is it.

Pure Jongo Wireless Multiroom System Review

 

The Pure Jongo system can be one of the company's Jongo wireless units on its own or a number of Jongo units all connected together or used separately...

Good value for money ; Easy multiroom audio solution ; Easy to use app for background music ; Very good build quality ; Good customisation choices

Not an audiophile product ; The various ways to stream can initially be confusing

You know products like the Jongo series of speakers are sometimes the hardest reviews to write and assess. The speakers are made for a market that is popular with the mainstream consumer, they fill a role that has been identified and they do it very...
