Bush Pocket DAB/FM Radio - Black. 4 5 50 51
Bush Pocket DAB Radio CDAB12 I purchased this item as I wanted a way to listen to DAB while at work in my van through the AUX socket. The size its great so fits into the pocket, reception is very good and a rechargeable battery is a big plus and can be charged using my phone charger whilst still listening to my program. The only reason I have not given a top rating is I think the menu is a bit awkward to access and long winded and if you don't hold the button long enough you only toggle between DAB and FM wavebands 10 July 2014
Pocket sized DAB radio easily fits in a pocket, upto now no problems. Clear and ease of use 01 July 2014
tiny radio. ... This is a much smaller radio than I expected and needs to be charged up from a computer or from a mains lead that you have to buy. Only holds the charge for 4 or 5 hrs. Bought for a relative in hospital and not really suitable as had to be brought home and charged every night but didn't last the day! 24 June 2014
Not what I expected Had to exchange this product, wasn't what I expected at all, staff was friendly and helpful about it 24 June 2014
Ideal size !! Love it . Now able to listen to my favourite stations on the move !! 17 June 2014

In the menu you can view the current software version, can this device be upgraded
(to, say, provide a workable user interface?)

Can it be put in pocket while being used? Is it heavy?Does it get earplugs with it? I want to use it while walking home from the office as my mobile doesnt provide good radio quality. However, I dont want to have weight of my mobile and radio.

Answer: 
Yes you can.

All you have to ensure is that the earphone/headphone cable is not wrapped up or bunched up but kept as straight as possible - as the cable acts as the antennae.

I use mine in my office that is surrounded by PCs etc and the reception is excellent. I do use it with the JVC HAF1X Xtreme Xplosive earphones - and the superior cable used on that aids the receptive quality as an aerial. Great sound too.

Answer: 
Depends on the length and quality of the lead connecting to the speaker as this also acts as the aerial. If the lead is too short you will still pick up the FM signals but DAB reception requires a longer aerial at least the length of the supplied headphones.
In the car I struggled to get good DAB reception with a short 1.5m aux lead but with an inexpensive 5 metre lead the reception was vastly improved and as good if not better than when using the supplied headphones.
