    Product Features
    • Real wood casing
    • DAB+ compatibility
    • Powerful sound profile

    Average Customer Review 4.6/5
    Editors Rating 89/100
    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!

    Great sound quality and a stylish wooden case make this model a winner

    • Powerful best-in-class sound quality
    • DAB/DAB+/FM modes

    • Large 2.8-inch full colour TFT display
    • Easy snooze handle
    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, which not only looks great but also helps to give the Evoke H4 a little extra acoustic sparkle.

  • 7. Pure Move T4 Portable DAB Radio & Bluetooth Speaker in Black

    Average Customer Review 4.5/5

    What We Think
    Most personal DAB radios offer limited features and poor sound quality, so it’s refreshing to see Pure get things right with the Pure Move T4. Nice and compact, it comes with a toughened glass screen so that it doesn’t get damaged while you’re out and about. Its built-in rechargeable battery offers up to 22 hours’ of listening time through headphones, making it the perfect companion for any adventure. As well as being a great personal DAB radio, the Move T4 also has a speaker with an impressive 4W output- putting it on a par with some much larger models. Prop the radio up on its retractable stand, and you can listen to it anywhere- so it’s a great choice for the garden or kitchen, too! With Bluetooth and an aux-in connection as well, the Move T4 really does it all.

    What We Think
    At first glance, the Pure Siesta Home looks like a typical alarm clock radio. In fact, though, it is an all-in-one hi-fi system, offering a whole host of features in a compact package.

  • 10. Pure Avalon N5 DAB Radio in Pearl Grey
    Our Verdict
    Wool casing sets this model apart from the crowd
    Product Features
    • Beautiful wool casing
    • Small body, powerful sound
    • Includes DAB, DAB+ and FM compatibility
    • Easy-to-use controls
    • Bluetooth connectivity for wireless streaming
    Editors Rating 72/100
    What We Think
    A wooden case is something of a trademark for Pure, but their Avalon range takes a very different approach to design. They’ve dropped the box-like look of the Evoke, and instead gone for something more akin to the Panasonic RF-D10EB-K. The slimline design is then wrapped in a gorgeous woven wool for a finish that’s subtle yet stylish. Even though it’s more compact than the Evoke range, it still provides a nice rich sound across both DAB radio and a Bluetooth connection. Making smart use of a small footprint, that design approach even extends to the unique pop button- both an on/off switch and volume control in one neat little package.
