Superb quality ,easy to programme the stations ,great sound quality and very lightweight, excellent purchase.
Back light failed after 2 weeks, returned it to shop & bought a pure r3, much better.
It didn’t work when Walk pass the telephone main station will work on the bus
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.
Great small radio fits perfect in pocket
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
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.
This compact stylish digital radio is a must for anyone on the go, great for outdoor use, great sound and packed with numerous stations. Nice and compact the radio fits into your top pocket with being bulky. A great buy.
Exceptional sound quality for the price-looks fab too
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...
Just what I needed for use on the go or trying to get to sleep!
it cost a little more but you pay more for quality
Great sports radio from Roberts. High quality and easy to use. The next meeting dale up has a speaker but for private listening via headphones this radio is great.
Spend some time in hospital usually have my mp3 with me but its the same old tunes over and over again. The Roberts dab 5 has good quality spund with endless stations to choose from .. Just what the doctor ordered .
