Our Verdict It's stylish and fine sounding - but there are better at this price For Great styling punchy sound clean, well detailed midrange Against There are better sonic performers at this price Reviewed on 15th December 2008 This stylish new offering from Pure is based on the form and function of the successful Evoke-1S. But it's a far more elaborate design, with its combination of coloured leather – in five optional colours – and cream suede. The five colours are: red, pink (above), green, brown and black. It's a fine-sounding radio, too. It offers the kind of performance we've come to expect from the mono Pure radios – clean, punchy and reasonably detailed. It doesn't try (like some radios) to pull the sonic wool over your ears with overly emphatic treble or bass. Instead, you get a good, honest midrange performance that favours voices and is a great listen in the long term. More after the break The only shock is that the £150-£200 price band is so competitive right now, there are better sonic performers at the price.
