Did You Know…

If you want to listen to digital radio in the car, Highway 300Di in-car digital radio and audio adaptor, brings an outstanding DAB performance. Highway 300Di offers more choice, including digital stations like BBC 6 Music and Planet Rock, as well as dramatically improved digital sound quality for existing AM stations such as BBC 5 Live, talkSPORT and Absolute Radio. But did you know you can also use picnic and forecourt mode??

Once you’ve reached your destination, Picnic mode allows you to still listen in with the ignition off and your car keys removed. However this doesn’t drain your car battery as Highway cleverly shuts down after an hour in picnic mode. Forecourt pause is ideal for quick stops at the petrol station or cashpoint, as it keeps Highway 300Di on standby for 15 minutes after you remove the keys. Once you restart the ignition, Highway immediately resumes the music you were playing and if it was a favourite digital radio programme you were listening to you can pause up to 8 minutes so you don’t have to miss a second!

(Note: picnic mode and forecourt mode are subject to different vehicle specifications)

Highway 300Di also includes a connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad and  and USB with full music control and charging. (SRP £200).

My favourite Pure Xmas gift is……….

Jenny here, Pure’s Media Relations Specialist. When asked which Pure product I’d recommend as a Christmas gift I went for the Evoke Mio by Orla Kiely Abacus Edition. Not least because I have one at home adorning my kitchen shelves and blending nicely with my grey/yellow colourscheme but also this gorgeous and stylish digital/FM radio is the best sounding portable I’ve heard.

 

I like to listen to Absolute Radio whilst cooking and maybe a bit of Smooth Christmas to get me into the festive mood! The kitchen timer really comes in handy when baking with the kids as things can get quite chaotic  - flour, icing sugar and fingers everywhere! One touch of the dedicated timer button and a turn of the dial to select the minutes is all it takes to ensure all our hard work doesn’t go up in flames.  It’s so easy to switch between stations too. I only have to turn my back for a second and my children have changed over to THEIR favourite music.

 

The Evoke also came in handy on our summer holiday in Devon. With the ChargePAK E1 giving hours of portable listening we connected up the iPod and listened to our tunes as we barbequed on the campsite into the night.

The Evoke Mio by Orla Kiely also comes in the signature stem print and is available exclusively from John Lewis for £149.99. The battery pack is an optional £34.99.

I think this radio would be such a great gift for anyone either already hooked on radio or for those new to digital listening. It’s packed with great features including pause and control scrolling text, a striking auto-dimming OLED display, an alarm and a USB connector for future product upgrades.

If you don’t want to remove yourself from the romantic embrace on the sofa try our new Pure Jongo S340B Jongo_S340B_Burnt_Orange_Frontportable, rechargeable wireless speaker (SRP £149.99) that can be used on its own or grouped together with other Jongo speakers to deliver the most affordable multiroom audio system on the market today. Jongo products use Wi-Fi to stream perfectly synchronised audio within a single or multiroom environment all from your iOS or Android device or a compattible Pure product such as One Flow or Sensia 200D Connect. Bluetooth is included for more informal, one-to-one streaming,

For the personal touch, ‘mixed tapes’ can easily be compiled on your Pure Music account on at www.pureconnect.com and played through any one of our internet connected radios: Evoke Flow, One Flow, Sensia 200D Connect, Contour, Contour 200i Air and Sirocco 550. All content is kept synced in the cloud and users can access their content intuitively from these devices whenever they want.

My favourite Pure gift for Christmas is……

Chloe here, Senior PR Executive for Pure. My favourite Pure product of this year that I would recommend for a Christmas gift are the two new additions to the Move range – Move 2500 and Move 400D.

Move 400DMove 2500

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Dad and I often use the Move 2500 or Move 400D when we’re at the football. Being West Ham fans we are used to avoiding relegation by the skin of our teeth, so we often listen out for the other scores during a game. With the noise isolating headphones that come with Move 2500 I can hear the best coverage from other games on BBC Radio 5 Live and talkSPORT, all through the crystal clear sound of digital radio.

Me with the Move 2500My dad with Move 400D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Move 400D is a great portable digital and FM radio that comes in handy during a game. You can use it with headphones or just carry it around with you and at half time everyone can have a listen! The great thing about Move 400D is that it has 60 hours of battery life per charge so during a season we rarely need to charge it up and with 20 presets we never have to search for our favourite stations!

Move 2500 is priced at £79.99 (SRP) and Move 400D is £89.99 (SRP), so great prices for Christmas. I would recommend Move 2500 an ideal gift for people who like jogging to great digital radio or want to listen to radio on the move at football or other sporting events. Move 400D is also great for gardeners, people who work outdoors and for those who love picnics!

Have a great Christmas and look out for more great products from us next year!
