    What We Think
    Pure were one of the first companies to start producing DAB radios, and bring with them over a decade of experience. The H3 is their flagship model, and it certainly lives up to Pure's reputation. With a real wood body and carefully sculpted interior, the Evoke H3 has surprisingly strong acoustics for a small speaker. The audio sounds a lot more natural as a result, and it’s also a pleasing aesthetic touch. The controls are nice and straightforward, as everything you need is right there on the top of the unit, leaving the front panel clear and uncluttered. Even better, the full-colour screen helps to make this digital radio even easier to use. Finally, the Evoke H3 even comes with a whopping 40 preset options. If you always find yourself flicking around the dial, this could be the option for you!

    Average Customer Review 4.6/5
    Editors Rating 90/100
    What We Think
    The flagship model of Pure’s Evoke range, the H4 is an excellent mid-sized DAB radio with a great range of features. First and foremost, the sound quality is some of the best we’ve heard from a model of this size, with a 3” driver that has been carefully tuned by the experts at Pure to ensure peak performance. An innovative snooze handle makes the Evoke H4 ideal as a bedside radio, but it is plenty powerful enough for most living rooms, too. And it’s not just a DAB radio either- the H4 also includes Bluetooth connectivity, so you can choose the soundtrack yourself, and an aux-in connection for devices without Bluetooth. It all comes encased in a gorgeous wooden body with seven-layered lacquered finish, which not only looks great but also helps to give the Evoke H4 a little extra acoustic sparkle.
