Pure isn’t always known as a maker of ultra-affordable gear. However, it really pulled something special out of the bag with the Pure Voca, now available for just £59.
Its design is like a curvier take on the Bose SoundLink Mini. It’s a dinky bar of metal, with grilles on each side. You could easily believe it costs twice its price.
There aren’t many extra features — no NFC or aptX — but the speaker array is on target. You get two 1.5-inch drivers, each backed by a passive radiator. It gets you that ‘bigger sound than it looks’ effect. The only bit we don’t love is that the sound is a bit bassy, and without the low-end control you get with something like the Bose alternative. Still, for the price it’s an obvious one to recommend. Price: £59
