Portronics has recently expanded its soundbar portfolio with the launch of its latest Pure Sound 102 with a subwoofer. The company claims that the audio device is built with contemporary style and equipped with a gamut of multimedia features that someone would aspire to have. The soundbar comes with 2.1 channels which ensure better sound quality and theater-type experience. That’s what the company promise, but in this article, we will tell you the details about Pure Sound 102 and how it performs. The company has shipped one device to us so that we will experience the sound quality and get you a review out of it. So without wasting any time let’s start with the design of the Pure Sound 102.
The Pure Sound 102 comes in a black color option with a traditional soundbar design. It offers a metal grill on the front which hides the powerful drivers of the device. The bar also comes with a status indicator light placed at the extreme right. The bar light indicates the modes and connectivity of the device. On the right side of the soundbar, you get the functional buttons which include the power button, mode button, and volume rockers. At the back, it comes with connectivity ports like ARC, a 3.5mm audio jack, and an optical port. The Pure Sound 102 also has a holder which will allow you to hang the soundbar on a wall in case you don’t want to place it on a tabletop. The overall look and feel of the Pure Sound 102 are brilliant and it looks good on the tabletop.
Things that I don’t like about the Pure Sound 102 is its opening announcement. Whenever you switch on the soundbar it delivers an announcement which was an irritation for me, but that is ignorable if considering the price of the device. The sound quality of the Pure Sound 102 is crisp, but there is a catch you need to set it on a correct setting. So if you’re playing music on the soundbar and the setting is on News then you will not be able to enjoy the music. You always have to keep an eye on the setting.
Here I can advise the brand to introduce an auto reorganize feature that is capable of understanding the fell of the content and changing the setting of its own. I know it’s too much to ask from the brand for a soundbar at this price point, but it can be done. My overall experience of the device was impressive and we can say that the company has come up with a good device to stand against its rivals.
