In the past Portronics has launched miniature versions of feature-rich utility devices like the portable scanner and projector. The latest from the company is a compact sound system weighing 195 gm.
The rectangular Pure Sound looks like a small speaker. But the music controls indicate that it can do much more. We turned it around to find a plethora of features. Of course it can play music and it can play it from a multitude of sources. One can either insert a microsd or a pen drive to play the music. If you have music in other devices like an ipod, phone or a laptop, the auxiliary port can be used.
Pure Sound also has an inbuilt FM radio that plays most of the channels ranging between 87.5MHZ to 108 MHZ. Channels can be changed using the music controls keys at the front.
Despite the many features on board, the Pure Sound hasn’t lost focus and the sound output is good. But at full volume, we noticed some distortion. Also, it comes with a rechargeable battery that eliminates the additional cost of replacing batteries.
