Having made their name in audio, Pure are taking it one step further with their range of Wireless Speakers, that give you a true multiroom experience. Don’t know about you, but I often end up attending house parties where sounds just don’t match, or music is a bit too different in different rooms. To get a true experience, you need to have one source, and the Jongo S3 speakers deliver it.
Working in parallel with Pure’s free app, these can offer both music, radio and brilliant music through Pure’s Pure Music app. A portable and rechargeable speaker, this can work on its own or in parallel with other Jongo speakers to give you the best multiroom experience.

Pure launches the first truly accessible multiroom music system
Announcing availability of Jongo S3 wireless speaker and companion Pure Connect iOS app
London, 10th April, 2013: Pure announces the availability of Jongo S3, a portable wireless speaker with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 360° sound.
Jongo S3 is the first product in Pure’s new Jongo multiroom music system and works with the free companion Pure Connect iOS app (iPhone and iPad) which is also available to download today*. Music fans can enjoy a 30 day free trial of Pure Music, Pure’s on demand music service with the app. Pure Connect offers an unparalleled combination of the best of radio and music in one place and takes the user on a journey of discovery with recommendations based on listening patterns and a selection of curated content from a range of trusted partners.
Says Nick Hucker, Pure’s director of marketing: “Multiroom audio has never been so accessible and flexible. Pure’s Jongo system in tandem with the Pure Connect app delivers an incredibly easy way to enjoy your favourite audio content throughout the home. We are the first to integrate a comprehensive on-demand music and compelling free radio service, with a range of our own products making the experience truly seamless. We are approaching a quarter of a million engaged users of the Pure Connect platform and we believe that the introduction of Jongo will grow this significantly.”
The Pure Jongo S3 portable, rechargeable wireless speaker (SRP £169.99) can be used on its own or grouped together with other Jongo speakers to deliver the most flexible and accessible multiroom audio system on the market today. Jongo products use Wi-Fi to stream perfectly synchronised audio within a single or multiroom environment, while Bluetooth allows users to stream content from any audio app on their smartphone or tablet, including locally stored music, to a single Jongo product. Users can simply add extra Jongo speakers or adapters on the same Wi-Fi network to build their multiroom system.
The compact Pure Jongo S3 offers rich, detailed and vibrant sound and comes with four tweeters for 360° audio, and an upward-firing subwoofer for powerful bass. Thanks to its five speakers and individual power amplifiers, Jongo has surprisingly punchy audio and with a simple press of the “audio” button on the rear of the unit, the user can select flexible audio profiles to make the most of any environment including 360° sound for community listening (stereo or mono); forward facing stereo or outdoor boost.
A rechargeable battery pack is included as standard and provides up to ten hours of listening per charge.
Jongo S3 comes in black, or piano (white with black speaker grilles), and has optional user-fit coloured grille packs in burnt orange, lime green, mango or white (from SRP £12.99).
The new Pure Connect iOS app is also now available to download. Using Wi-Fi along with the free Pure Connect app, users can get the additional benefit of listening to multiple, tightly synchronised Jongo products in a single room or in a multiroom environment. The new Pure Connect app currently gives users access to local music on their smartphone or tablet, over 20,000 radio stations, around 200,000 free on-demand programmes and podcasts, as well as 15 million streamable music tracks via the Pure Music subscription service**.
Pure is adding Jongo T6, a powerful, wireless stereo speaker, and Jongo A2, a wireless hi-fi adapter to its Jongo multiroom music system. Both new products, which will be available in the first half of 2013, will sit alongside the Jongo S3 portable wireless speaker.
