DiscovR: A Smarter Speaker


A smarter speaker with privacy and discovery at its heart

Introducing DiscovR: an intuitive smart speaker with Alexa built-in that blends tactile controls with cutting-edge voice technology, allowing for enhanced privacy and innovative Music Discovery

London, 4th June 2019: DiscovR, the portable Alexa-enabled smart speaker by Pure, is available to purchase now, launching exclusively at John Lewis for £229.99. It comes in two stylish colours, Silver and Graphite, and is packed with a host of unique features not found in other smart speakers.

Pure understands that you want voice control, but also knows the importance of customer trust – therefore DiscovR has been developed with enhanced privacy in mind.

This beautifully compact smart speaker appreciates that you love to talk, but doesn’t forget the convenience of touch. So, while functioning as a fully voice-activated Alexa speaker, it can also be operated manually with touch sensitive controls.

Offering fully immersive 360° sound, DiscovR heightens your listening experience; with unparalleled connectivity and Music Discovery. On top of this, its portable form and 15-hour battery life means you can take your music, and enjoy room-filling audio performance, anywhere.

Mic Drop

Thanks to its innovative custom engineering, DiscovR is the only smart speaker on the market that offers a unique, compressing X-SPAN design, that when closed, physically disconnects the microphones for enhanced privacy.

Music Discovery

Listening to the radio is one of the most common uses for a smart speaker. Heard a track you love on your favourite station? A simple tap of the Music Discovery button lets you identify and add any song you hear on the radio to a Spotify playlist for listening back later.

Quick Corners

Just ask Alexa and she’ll answer questions, play music, read the news, set timers and alarms, check sports scores, control your smart home and much more.

We know that convenience is king, so when speaking a command out loud isn’t always possible, DiscovR comes with intuitive Quick Corners. You can pre-set Alexa commands, radio stations or playlists to be accessed instantly at the touch of a button.

There’s also a button to mute the microphone, touch controls for volume and track skipping and source selection is shown by its corresponding colour.


Give your music, radio and podcasts the freedom they deserve, with listening via Alexa, Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth and aux-in. You can also connect to compatible speakers, including other DiscovR speakers, for a versatile multiroom experience. 

Pure Home App

Setting up your DiscovR couldn’t be easier. Download the easy-to-use and intuitive Pure Home app to connect your DiscovR to a wireless network, Spotify and Alexa. You can also customise your speaker settings and access product support, plus you’ll be notified of any new software updates.

DiscovR is available to order from 23rd April at John Lewis. For more information, please visit: www.pure.com/discovr.
