Holiday Must Have ~ Memorex Pure Play Portable Speaker for iPod ~ Review

When you have a family that is constantly on the go, you are always on the look out for products to make your adventures as comfortable as possible.  When you have a teenager among you, portable technology is a must have!

For us, it was all about the music.
For them, it may be about the texting, but the music is still all important.
Having portable accessibility is essential.

Beyond portability, however, is the necessity to share.
If you have a teen, you know all too well what I refer to.
They share their clothes, their accessories, their hearts.
Their music.

Given an opportunity, courtesy of Memorex, to test the PurePlay Portable iPod Speaker System, my teen daughter was beyond thrilled.  She, of course, have the obligatory iPod Boombox style docking station, which is lightweight and quite portable for around the house.  The Pure Play speaker, however, takes portability to a whole new level!

This iPod compatible speaker is small in footprint, measuring only 8.7" x 3.3" x 1.8" , but carries a powerful capacity to share your music.   Translation:  My 15 yr old daughter LOVES it!  Lightweight and the ultimate in portable sound, she just tosses it in her purse, tote or bag and off she goes!

Features of the PurePlay include:

  • ability to dock iPhones and iPods for powering and charging, essential with teen level use
  • stereo speakers loud enough to share your music with the neighbors from pool side
  • line in jack enabling connection with other digital audio devices
  • choice of powering via 4 AAA batteries or AC adapter
  • self enclosing, protective, folding case
Having received the PurePlay during the summer months, our unit has been thoroughly tested:
  • countless pool parties
  • three camping trips
  • several cross-country lacrosse tournaments
  • cross country practices and meets
  • football games
  • beach excursions
  • homecoming parade
  • bon fires
  • sleepover parties
  • impromptu after school gatherings
  • non stop regular use 
Although Memorex offers a one year warranty on the PurePlay, after months of rigorous teen testing (that's seven years for the rest of us) the PurePlay is yet in excellent, fully functioning condition!  At a modest price for such a teen proof essential device, I believe it is well worth the retail price of $69.99, as well as deserving of inclusion in our Must Have Holiday Gift Guide!   Grab a PurePlay for your teen or lover of music on the go at Best Buy.

I was provided with a PurePlay from Memorex to explore for the purposes of creating this feature.  The opinions and experiences above are both honest and my own.  Images and information from various Memorex sources.  Earbud Image.
