LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- CES 2014 -- Pure (South Hall #36254) - Today at CES, Pure announces that its Jongo T4 wireless speaker will be available in the U.S this month, along with a new range of colorful speaker grilles based on the latest global trends for 2014.
Jongo T4 is a versatile and perfectly balanced wireless speaker that delivers clean and precise amplified audio with enough punch to more than fill the average family room.
Jongo T4 ($299 MAP) joins Jongo S3 ($199 MAP), a rechargeable, portable wireless speaker, Jongo A2 ($129 MAP), a wireless hi-fi adapter and wireless speakers, Jongo T2 ($149 MAP) and Jongo T6 ($349 MAP).
"Speaker size and positioning of speakers is important to consumers, which is why Pure has developed multiple Jongo products to suit different needs and tastes," said Noam Meppen, Pure's director of sales, U.S. "In the U.S, where homes are often larger than in other countries, we are seeing higher sales of our larger speakers so we expect there to be a lot of interest in the new Jongo T4."
New color collections
Two new color collections are available for customers to accessorize their Jongo speakers. The 'Neutral' collection features Goblin Blue, Comfrey, Iron and Travertine and the 'Vibrant' color collection comprises Dazzling Blue, Radiant Orchid, Mango and Cayenne.
"Personalization is a growing trend and fashion is increasingly influencing the design of the latest gadgets," continued Meppen, "We want to ensure that our customers have the latest on-trend colorways to choose from when they are accessorizing their Jongo speakers. The colors we have chosen are based on both 2014 color trend reports and consumer research so we are confident our customers will find the perfect match for their home décor or mood."

About Caskeid technology
Pure uses Caskeid technology, developed by Pure's parent company, Imagination Technologies, to deliver the world's most accurately synchronized wireless multiroom audio experience. This level of synchronization was previously only possible with wired systems and accurate synchronization is vital when listening in stereo.
Wireless systems are technically challenging to implement and are often impacted by unreliable network or unfavorable environmental conditions. The threat of instability can really impact the listening experience, especially when listening in stereo or ultimately 5.1 surround sound. That's because the human ear can typically detect a deviation of between 50 microseconds between speakers.
With Caskeid technology the deviation is less than 20 microseconds. This means that listeners can hear each individual instrument and vocal performance as it was created in the studio with no drift or shift in the stereo landscape.
