    4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly harmless 26 Mar 2011
    I attempted to buy this product direct from Nokia 2 months ago but the unit they sent me was faulty -the headphones, (theirs or mine) couldn't maintain a stable connection, resulting in loss of signal/mono reception. I sent it back for a replacement but the Post Office lost it. Tsk. After much shennanigans and Douchebaggery I obtained a refund and bought one off Amazon.(5 cheaper ta.v.much)It arrived quick + in good nick Blah Blah Amazon are the dog's etc,the unit works fine - no problem with the headphone connection and after re-installing the software onto my N8 3 times, the software is easy to use.When it gets a signal the clarity is first class but herein lies the problem.The sales pitch states you can use your own headphones - unless you live on the roof of a tall building 640 feet from the Crystal Palace Transmitter you will lose the signal when you move to 641. I took a 6 mile bus journey through the 'Burbs into Town and lost the BBC.R4 signal intermittantly for approx 70% of the journey.I tried the next day using the Headphones supplied and got good reception for about 95% of the journey. That said, when I got into Town amongst the high buildings the signal was very flaky. I switched to the music player on the N8 and listened to Mp3 through the Dab unit -very good sound quality,better than listening through the normal connection using an 80 pair of Sony headphones. All in all this is the best way I have found of getting good quality radio on my phone without having to stream it (the reception for 3G streaming for R4 is about as consistant as DAB reception).I'm going to keep it and whistle during the gaps.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal! 10 Jan 2012
    Verified Purchase
    This excellent headset is a 'must have' if you want to listen to DAB radio on a Nokia N8. The standard headset supplied with the phone is of no use for DAB radio! There are 3 different pairs of ear buds supplied to ensure a comfortable fit, and the sound quality is truly outstanding for both phone and radio use. Friends a have said that I sound clearer when I use the phone in headset mode. The controls are easy to use but as with all DAB radio there is a slight pause between stations when switching between channels. It's not a fault but rather a quirk of DAB radio when compared with FM stations where the change between stations is very fast. I'm very pleased with the CU-17a DAB radio headset hence the 5* rating.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product and service 10 Jan 2012
    First I would like to say that I had next day recorded delivery and a prompt reply to a e-mail. Excellent service from B2B Trading.

    The DAB system is awesome if you are in a strong signal area. In my area it is hit and miss. Alot is due with the buildings around you (finding in built up areas it not working as good.

    If you listen to radio on phone like I do, you definately need this upgrade. I am picking up 41 radio stations in Llanelli south wales. I know you can get more depending on your area.

    4.0 out of 5 stars DAB review 7 Jan 2012
    Verified Purchase
    This arrived promptly but I didn't open it until after Christmas. Does what it says on the lid, surprisingly good reception with the earphones and the device attached. Good sound through the N8's loudspeaker and nicely portable. Would be good to be able to record as well but what can you expect at this price? This must be the cheapest way to get a small portable DAB radio.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and crisp audio performance 8 Dec 2011
    The audio quality is excellent. As much of my time attempting to listen to DAB with this accessory has been in areas where the DAB signals have been quite weak, irrespective of station, I can't comment authoritatively on its DAB reception performance (the wiring of the headset itself acts as an aerial). One does need a strong signal for smooth reception. That said, one can listen with ease to music recorded and stored on one's Nokia N8, and I have found the audio quality of this headset to be absolutely superb. It is very comfortable to wear (and is supplied with a variety of differently sized earbuds). The easy to use hands-free telephone facility is incorporated into the in-line control unit, and the performance is excellent. The volume is, of course, easily and conveniently adjustable from the control unit.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Works well but is not very discrete 26 Nov 2011
    By Kimon
    Verified Purchase

    DAB is the only way to get hiss-free radio in a city without nearby mountains on which to place analogue FM transmitters (London). And you get a bigger selection of stations without missing much (most stations here seem to broadcast in DAB as well).

    The headphones are decent enough. But you CAN plug your OWN HEADPHONES into the remote. Radio reception was just as good, plus I got better sound and a more discreet overall setup. It also means I can revert to regular FM by plugging my headset into the audio out of the phone.


    The remote is rather bulky (big like my thumb) and the cords are also substantial. Combined with the mandatory white colour it is not ideal to be worn discretely. Maybe the bigger cords are more resilient to knots, but they are also clumsy going from the ear to the pocket, and the whole thing is not compact at all when you want to tuck it away when not in use.

    Though the usb jack is angled and you should have no problem slipping the phone in a pocket (assuming the usb plug is on the side, like the N8), it is a bit akward when actually holding the phone, compared to a normal heaset in the audio jack.

    DAB seems to drain the battery quicker than MP3 or FM. I can usually spend all day on MP3, more on FM, but DAB killed a fresh charge in an afternoon.

    Things to note:

    You can't receive analogue FM with this set (not sure why you'd want to anyway), since the phone only knows how to use a headset as an aerial if it's plugged straight into the audio out. The headset bit of the CU-17a has a cord too chord to use into the phones audio plug directly, but this can be fixed if you use your own headset instead of the provided earplugs.
