Pocket radio

There is little choice of small pocket radios. This radio is the best we could find. DAB radios seem to use al lot of power and use up battery fast, but this radio seems fine so far. However the controls are fiddly and the casing is rather cheap rigid plastic which may crack easily. A more rubbery type finish would have been better. Reception is as good as any DAB and better that some.

Not great unless you are in an open field

The downside is that the signal for every channel is not very strong indoors nor in a car when you have mounds or forest either side of you. It's very fuzzy & soon stops altogether. It will probably have to be returned. The earphones broke on first day of purchase. Plus they were extremely painful when in. I had to use my own earbuds.

Lousy battery life

Bought late July. No indication on pack of battery life. Wouldn’t touch Robert’s again. Beacon Electrics in Totnes, not particularly in complaint. Visitor to UK

Good all round pocket Dab radio

The best pocket radio I have ever owned and the first one with DAB. It is so easy to use .No problems tuning for radio stations and I love the display with station information. The sound quality is good but would be much improved with over the ear headphones. I am happy enough with the in ear headphones. Battery life is excellent as I use rechargeable ones.

I use the radio to keep up to date with cricket, tennis etc when out and about, and also plug it into my car sound system, as I can’t get Radio 5 Extra on my car radio. This one works fine, good sound, battery life etc. My previous Roberts Sports radio was rechargeable, which is more eco. Previous model also could play like a ‘normal’ radio, ie without earphones,which is sometimes useful. That apart, I am perfectly happy with the product...
