Review: Oxx Pocket digital radio
The Oxx Pocket is tiny – 6.8cm high and just 3.6cm wide and weighs only 75g.
The device is powered by two AAA batteries which are included and will give listeners more than eight hours of use.
Oxx Pocket has a simple button layout and menu system that can be mastered in a minute.
Front and centre on the Oxx Pocket is a backlit two-line LCD display which can show users the station they are listening to as well as display other information like the name of the song playing or the phone number to call into talkback stations.
It is easy to set up a list of favourite stations to give you quick access to those presets.
On the audio side the Oxx Pocket punches well above its weight because it has managed to fit an audio equaliser inside its tiny chassis.
But even better news is the fact the Oxx Pocket doesn’t come with a $2 pair of headphones as many others do.
Included with the device is a pair of a-Jays One earphones – these are worth $49.95 on their own – featuring the signature flat tangle free cable and, of course, great sound.
I’ve heard many complaints from people who want to listen to AM radio on the go but they only have access to FM stations on their mobiles.
AM tuners are much larger than FM tuners which is why you can’t find them onboard a mobile.
The Oxx Pocket is the ideal solution with a unit that give them hiss-free reception of their favourite AM and FM stations in a unit that’s so small you’ll forget it’s even in your pocket.
Four stars (out of five)
