Portable digital radio reviews

We test 23 digital radios in the CHOICE labs including models from Sangean, Bush, Pure and more.

Last updated: 27th February 2013

We test 23 portable digital radios that run on batteries and mains power, plus one battery-only model (the Sangean DPR-65) to assess sound quality, their ability to hold a signal, battery life, ease of use and energy efficiency. Mid-priced models tended to score the best in this test, while cheaper models didn't rate as well.
