Does what it says on the tin !!,
This review is from: OXX Pocket DAB Radio DAB+ Radio FM Radio (Electronics)
After looking for a handy pocket radio for some time, I spotted a glowing review about this tiny radio on a technology website and took the plunge.
I'm very glad I did so as it's excellent and does the job very well.
Outdoor reception is terrific and the sound is very clear (an added bonus is the excellent tangle-fee Jays earphones which are included in the price and which themselves get good reviews)
Indoor reception is not very good and in fact you need to do the scanning for stations outdoors to get best results. Also as the earphones act as the aerial you need to keep them dangling to optimise the reception (ie. you can't just stuff the excess cable length into your pocket !!)
Negatives are that there are only 4 pre-sets and the favourite station function is fiddly to use. Now I don't bother with the pre-sets - it's just as quick to flick through the stations.
Oxx is a Scandinavian manufacturer presently not well-known in the UK but apparently its reputation is growing, especially in Australia, and, judging from the quality of this pocket radio, it will soon be a name to reckon with across here too.
