Q & As

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely personal radio Used this at 4 rugby World Cup matches to listen to the radio 5 live match commentary. Excellent reception. Had previously used a non DAB Personal radio and this Roberts DAB radio was far superior for ease of use and lack of interference. 27 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by OK, should be better. Quite good little radio companion, with, for me, a major caveat (the sleep function is useless). A little fiddly to set up but once done, that's it. It keeps all chosen stations in memory even when changing batteries (but it does NOT retain the chosen sleep function which, annoyingy, has to be reset every time). Granted that it eats batteries, particularly on DAB (a well know side effect of that mode for any radio), but I suggest doing as I did. Buy the Energizer Pro Charge AA/AAA Battery Charger. That comes with four AA batteries so that you'll always have a set ready for changeover and not have to keep buying expensive fresh batteries. They're ideal companions. 04 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Battery length extremely poor I bought this item some months back. Looks very smart, sound good but I am so disappointed regarding how often it needs new batteries. Four to five hours is the maximum. This radio was bought to replace a Sony which I had for ten or so years. The battery life on that was far longer and I only needed one triple A battery to run it. Can't understand why the battery life is so short. Wouldn't recommend this item. Joany C 29 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant little radio I bought this product for my elderly mother as a Christmas gift. She enjoys listening when she is in bed, she says the quality of sound is excellent and its compact nature very easy for her to handle. It has made a 95 year old very happy. 28 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Eats batteries Negatives: The main issue is the battery life 4 or 5 hours - completely unrealistic/expensive. The second issue is the DAB signal particularly moving around outdoors is very fussy. These combine to make this device useless to me. Positives: The exterior and buttons are well styled, and there is no silly/unnecessary clock which work even when the radio is off. 26 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Roberts Sports DAB5 Radio received this as a gift..lovely little radio and well designed, light and portable. However, it is not very practical when Duracell batteries only last about 3-4 hours. Very dissappointed, because I wont be able to use it on a regular basis. There are cheaper models on the market that give much longer battery life. 26 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great As described in the product literature. I now have a portable DAB which I can easily connect to my (old but not to be replaced) hifi via the “tape in” connection (via a 3.5mm to twin phone lead). Better still: I now have a DAB facility in my car at minimal cost (via a 2m 3.5mm to 3.5mm lead) without having to rip the current radio out & stick a horrid antenna to the screen. Both connections work well and (to my ears at least) the sound quality is excellent. And …. at last BBC5 live sports broadcasts and Radio 6 wherever I am! 19 December 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The true cost of DAB?! This radio has a good sound and is easy once you've mastered the control button. it only me? I have been getting only about 10 hours from long-life batteries. It's costing me a fortune! I think I'll revert to the 994 Sport FM model which uses smaller batteries and these last a good four times longer. Shame! 19 October 2014
