Mu­si­cal World

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

Portron­ics Pure Sound Pro was an im­pres­sive por­ta­ble speaker with a host of con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions. But one thing it lacked was Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity. Pure Sound Pro BT adds the miss­ing link.

The Pro BT looks like its pre­de­ces­sor. It is a tri­an­gu­lar bar-shaped sturdy speaker. The grill dom­i­nates the front. The right side has a panel with a small dis­play, the power key, vol­ume con­trols, modes and mu­sic con­trol. On the right edge are var­i­ous ports for aux in, head­phone, mem­ory card, USB and a mini USB port. An in­built FM tuner can be used to en­joy mu­sic when you don’t have any de­vice to pair with the speaker. The speaker also supports voice prompts that no­tify the mode it is in when pow­ered on or paired over Blue­tooth.

The sound qual­ity is pretty good. There weren’t many dis­tor­tions at the high­est vol­ume. The vol­ume can go up to 40, which is good enough for an out­door pic­nic or a ter­race party. When in­doors, it did a good job at 30 vol­ume.

Un­like other por­ta­ble speak­ers, the Pro BT pro­vides an op­tion to re­move the bat­tery when the sys­tem is not in use for a long du­ra­tion.
