What’s great about Logitech’s new Pure-Fi Anywhere is the fact that it can be easily packed up, brought along, and be used instantly, without the need for electrical outlets.
The package comes with the Pure-Fi Anywhere speaker system, an AC adapter, a remote control, different universal dock adapters for the iPod, and a protective travel case. The unit comes in either white or black, giving users the option to choose which unit complements their iPod. The unit also has six buttons on top of the unit (volume up and down, shuffle, repeat, ‘Stereo XL’, and power button) and a battery life indicator, making it easy for users to control the unit with ease. What’s good about this portable speaker system is the fact that it can play other audio players, as an auxiliary input connector is present at the back of the unit.

One thing we really liked about the Pure-Fi is the fact that it can get very loud without compromising on its sound quality. Delivering loud and clear music is one thing, but for a speaker this size to deliver a full-range of sound at loud volumes, it just left us speechless.
The speakers were able to pump out the bass as we listened to our drum and bass album and give us lively mids and highs while listening to the latest pop tunes. In addition to this, users may be able to widen the sound field just by enabling the ‘Stereo XL’ mode. We listened to the unit with and without the ‘Stereo XL’ mode and have found that there was an obvious difference in sound perception when this function is turned on. This is because of the fact that we instantly had that impression that the sound coming from the speakers came from various directions (front and sides), even if the speakers were right in front of us.

The battery life of the unit was superb as it lasted around ten hours before having to recharge it again, making it the ideal portable speakers during those summer beach trips with family and friends.

It has a noteworthy sound quality, has a very well-made remote control, and has a rechargeable battery that will keep the music playing on and on.
