Pure Jongo T2

 

Pure's Jongo T2 is among the most affordable starting points for a multi-room wireless audio system out there, but there are more compelling options if you can spend a little more or need just one speaker.

Powerful audio performance for its size. Strong bass response and clarity throughout the mids and highs. Pure Connect app combines your own music library and suggested tracks. Can use both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Pure Connect app is clunky to use. Unless you set up multi-room audio, the Jongo T2 doesn't pose a real advantage over similarly priced Bluetooth speakers

British audio company Pure makes wireless, multi-room speaker systems for the home you can control with a mobile app. The Pure Connect app does far more than simply play and pause music; once connected to your Wi-Fi network, you can stream your entire...

Pure Jongo S3

 

The Pure Jongo S3 is a functional, inexpensive Wi-Fi-capable speaker for multi-room setups, but if you just want a single music box there are better Bluetooth models out there.

Supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Pleasantly loud

Bass tends to distort at higher volumes. Wi-Fi app is very limited

Android-based Wi-Fi music standards have the same problem as the Android platform itself: Every company that makes a speaker has its own different idea on how it should work. There's no real AirPlay for Android to function as a universal way to stream...

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

Expert review by:

Pure Jongo T6 review

 

Pure is all about wireless audio, and that's what the alleged "room-filling" - not literally, just with audio of course - Pure Jongo T6 is all about.

Pure Connect app works well, plenty of volume, easy to pair devices, can connect to home network for multi-room output

Not enough low-end, Wi-Fi network is a must, vanilla plasticky design, top-end over-bright and sound overly separated from the overall mix, Pure Connect streams at 128kbps limit

We’ve settled in with the Pure Jongo T6 and while we’ve succumbed to many of its charms, there’s this niggling scratch in our minds. Where’s the big bass? For the £300 price tag there’s just not enough of the low-end, while the scattered top-end sound...

Pure Jongo T6 review

 

Great value, good looks and solid sound - the Pure Jongo T6 is a classy wireless speaker that should bring multi-room to the masses

Big ballsy sound ; Seamless setero performance ; Solid value

Uninspired design ; Overly bright ; Not quite Sonos

With the Jongo T6 Pure has created a wireless speaker with enough welly for all but the biggest living rooms.

Pure Jongo S3 wireless speaker

 

This compact, weighty speaker sounds surprisingly good

Well-rounded, omni-directional sound ; Great bass for a portable speaker ; Good battery life

Too expensive ; No streaming music in Wi-Fi mode

Pure’s Jongo S3 is, in and of itself, a great wireless speaker. It’s versatile, powerful, and sounds good. We do think it’s too expensive, though, and there’s a big trade-off inherent in the wireless streaming design.

Pure Jongo S3 review

 

Don't be distracted by the dinky dimensions, the Pure Jongo S3 is a great little wireless speaker that'll save you a pretty penny

Battery-powered portability ; Price ; Connectivity

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

On its own the Pure Jongo S3 is an impressive bundle of wireless fun. The combination of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and all-day battery life plus good looks, great sound and competitive price should see it fly off the shelves.

Pure Jongo T6

 

A serious wireless speaker for the masses.

Decent sound quality ; Versatile wireless streaming

Sharp treble not kind to low bitrate streams ; Limited low bass impact

Pure Jongo S3 review.

Pure Jongo T2 review

 

Ideal for anyone already invested in Pure's multi-room speaker system but has no need for portability

If you're looking for an inexpensive entry to multi-room streaming, the Jongo T2 is well worth your consideration. Even with its quirks, Pure's Jongo range should be the multi-room system of choice for anyone looking for the best value.

Pure Jongo T2

 

A low-cost wireless speaker with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

Affordable ; Bluetooth/Wi-Fi streaming is versatile

Unimpressive sound quality ; Performance issues ; Tricky setup

The Pure Jongo T2 is designed to be an accessible entry point to the world of multi-room and wireless audio. However, ropey sound quality and performance issues are more likely to put you off in the long run.
