which is £50, so a pretty good deal if you want this particular one

was thinking of getting this for the car.. I have a coating the blocks RF in the windows ( i.e. GPS doesn't work through the windows). anything similar with a external dab aerial input?

yeah i have a bush handheld radio in my car using aux.Cheapest way get dab in car got mine off ebay a tenner and works fine

​i have RF type shielding in the windows and will need an external aerial. GPS has trouble even in my ford focus as it has a front windscreen heater.

Got this in my car. USB permanently charges it and an excellent signal through the aux connection.

so the sheilding on the aux cable is the antenna?.. sounds like a plan!

Ordered. Thanks OP.

​I had one of these, the worst speaker ever put into a radio. I love my other Pure radios but avoid this one unless you only ever want to use the 3.5mm jack.

Need one of these for the car as my Renault Zoe only has an FM radio so I can't listen to Five Live or Talk Sport.

Probably best not to water this Bush...

nice deal....have some heat

Not a massive downside but doesn't have AM as mentioned in the OP's spec.

That sounds like a massive downside to me, are you sure?

The battery power is really low for this type of device - about 40% of average.
I don't think any pocket dab radio has am radio.
The usb is a bonus.

perfect for the car +

Picture reminds me of a blonde I use to see.

​Plus extra for the battery.

Can you charge it and listen at the same time ?
Edited by: "KongDonkey" 12th May

Looks good, but reviews say it has very poor battery life, but still good for the money

Just picked mine up and it looks a bit different to the photo on the website - looks like they've updated the model recently. Had a quick go on it though an seems ok - and according to the manual this 'newer' version has a 1000mAh battery so maybe it'll last longer than others have found previously.

I've purchased today and also got the different design, more iPod like, which I prefer.
Using it as an in car solution, much cheaper than highway brand. Uses the aux cable as the aerial and has found/tuned 20+ channels with ease. Reception is good inside the car. Thanks OP.

​Yes. I got one at lunchtime

My old pure1500 had an 1800mAh battery pack , about standard.
Just ordered the majority romsey after reading this - https://medium.com/@tgheretford/pocket-dab-radio-sensitivity-9e5829e4ffd0

yup the majority ones look like a.decent buy..
cheers for the link. much appreciated.

Been looking for a cheap way to get DAB in my car - managed to Reserve one even though it's out of stock in most of my local stores! So all I need is an AUX Cable to use this in car?

​yes the aux cable input to your car stereo should be sufficient.
I am.actually a bit concerned given the new laws and being fined for using mobile, GPS etc, we could potentially get a fine for changing the radio channel. I am all for being vigilant, safe and law abiding, but this is a concern.....

of course one should never do something that could distract ones driving ( had to put that in, in case it wasn't evident).

Well I left mine playing DAB radio on headphones (with backlight on all the time) and it's still going 9 hours later. I was trying to drain the battery thinking i'd give it a good charge and take it out for a test on a full battery over the weekend. New model seems much better than the old one for battery/power use.

Very sure I have one here, it has DAB and FM no AM though.

Have reserved one for collection in the morning. The model you got looks to be better though so hopefully mine is also same.
Had a Google this evening and found another Bush model DS405 which looks identical to yours, is it possibly the DS405 you got?

That's the one, seems much the same function wise as the other model, came with cheap in-ear headphones and a usb cable.

Thank you.

No DAB+ with this Bush model? That's probably why they are clearing stock.

Picked mine up today and it is the same Ds405 model you got.

Manual states it's a 1000mah battery so definite improvement on the originally indicated model so would expect a much more usable playing time.

Rechargeable battery with micro USB socket for charging is a major bonus. Will use wee power pack as backup if required.

Very happy, cheers OP


Just be aware that the Amazon reviews of the Majority DAB alternate between glowingly uncritical and realistic/critical. According to one honest reviewer it comes with a voucher encouraging you to leave a positive review.
