It's refreshing to see another speaker system designed specifically for the mobile world and not dedicated to the iPod. Although one can use most iPod docks with a mobile phone that has a 3.5mm earphone socket a wire would be required of course. However, the Logitech Pure-Fi Mobile is truly designed to be wireless with its Bluetooth capabilities. Here’s what I have to say about its portability, sound quality and the general appeal of the product.
The Pure-Fi Mobile is a very neatly packaged device. It's small, slim, sleek and very easily portable. It’s exactly 27.5 cms in length, 7 cms in height and 2.5 cms in depth, which makes it something that you could possibly slip into your rear pocket like that chick in the Sony Viao TV advertisement. Of course if you happen to be a guy I don’t recommend walking like that. The Pure-Fi Mobile is also quite l ight weight.
The top portion is the console section that has all the control options. From the beginning -
On the rear of the device is a USB port for the charger as well as for hook up to a PC to be used as an HID (Human Interface Device) so you can listen to audio while charging the port via USB. The Pure-FI Mobile also comes with spare charger for wall sockets. In the front are the dual microphones for calls and the four Speakers - Dual 2-inch (5.1 cm) active drivers and 2-inch (5.1 cm) pressure drivers.
Like the Pure-Fi Anywhere 2, the Mobile also has a set of panels that slide out from the bottom to prop up the unit.
In my opinion, the Pure-Fi Mobile is a really well designed device in terms of ergonomics and overall form factor.
Features and Performance
It’s an extremely easy device to use. The keys are clearly marked so you can do no wrong. All necessary wires including a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable have been included so you can opt to use any other device aside from a mobile phone or PC via Bluetooth or USB respectively. It requires no setting up of any kind. Simply charge the battery and you’re good to go. Again the option for charging via a PC or laptop’s USB port is a great concept and negates having to lug around a charger since it charges via USB and also plays via the same stream.
It’s not hard connecting the device via Bluetooth. Simply keep the Source button pressed till the Bluetooth symbol flashes and pair it with a handset via the Bluetooth menu. You’ll need to use the code supplied with the unit, it’s usually just ‘000’. Once you’re paired you can stream music or answer calls.
