Review: Oxx Breeze digital radio

oxxbreezethumbdigital radio

Digital radio has come along way in a short time with a lot more devices hitting the market and prices coming down.

A good example of this is the new Oxx Breeze DAB+/FM Digital Radio which is compact, stylish and affordable.

The device offers crystal clear sound, scrolling text on the two-line display and the ability to run it on batteries or mains power.  

The Oxx Breeze is just 13.5cm wide, 10.5cm high and just 4.5cm thick – so it’s not really going to hog the space on your desk or workbench. Without batteries it weighs in at just 280g.

And because it can run on batteries the device is easily portable so it can accompany you to the garden, the park or the beach. With a fresh set of batteries the Oxx Breeze will run for more than 10 hours.

The Oxx Breeze is compact and easily portable

The simple design is finished in matte black with silver trim with all of the buttons to operate the Oxx Breeze found on the top panel of the device.

On the back is the battery panel with room for four AA batteries and a headphone jack to hear your favourite stations without disturbing others.

Despite its small size, the Oxx Breeze is loud enough to be easily heard across a large room.

It’s also easy to scroll up and down through the digital and FM stations and select stations by name rather than by frequency.

All of the controls for the Oxx Breeze are located on the top panel of the device

The small two-line display provides data like song titles, talk back numbers and other useful information.

It’s also possible to save up 10 of your favourite digital and 10 favourite FM stations as presets.

The Oxx Breeze is a compact yet powerful little digital radio and represents excellent value at just $79.95.

It is available now from Harvey Norman, Bing Lee and OO.COM.AU
