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.

The Pure Jongo S3 is a solid performer of a wireless speaker with some interesting flexibility thanks to its Bluetooth and Wi-Fi functions. However, it's chunkier and doesn't sound quite as good as the UE Boom or the Bose SoundLink Mini, both of which...

Pure Jongo S3 and Jongo T2 Review

 

Think multi-room audio and your first thought is probably Sonos , but Pure is hoping to change all that. Initially started to demonstrate the wireless chips of parent company Imagination Technologies, Pure has since taken on a life of its own, not only...

Pure’s Jongo system is certainly ambitious, and the company has progressively been adding to the services side, with Pure Music and NAS support, in addition to new speaker models. The Jongo T2 is competitively priced, too, though anyone concerned about...

Jongo S3 review: Wireless speaker is flexible but offers unimpressive sound

 

The Pure Jongo S3 offers portability and flexibility in the form of Wi-Fi, wired, and Bluetooth connectivity, but its multi-room and Wi-Fi capabilities are limited as is its fidelity.

Offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and wired connectivity., Battery allows you to take it with you., Can create stereo pairs with two units.

No support for common music services over Wi-Fi., Wi-Fi setup is a bit clumsy., Unimpressive sound.

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 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...
