What makes a Roberts?

Since 1932, Roberts has set out to make audio products that give you more than just a listening experience. We know that when a product looks, feels and sounds sensational, everyday listening can change your day, set the mood and style your home.

Our audio origins

Founded nearly 90 years ago by good friends Harry Roberts and Leslie Bidmead, Roberts Radio began handcrafting portable radios – initially producing just three radios a week. Today we’re the UK market leader in portable radios, still delivering on the original Roberts philosophy: never compromise on quality and keep pushing the boundaries.

Our responsibility

A Roberts is designed to last. It’s a concept that leads to conscious choices about how we create our products – from high quality materials, and a continual focus on ways to reduce our environmental impact. The Planet Mark certification, showing our endeavours to reduce carbon emissions, is a step in the right direction on what is a committed and longer journey.
