Philips Bärbar radio DA9011 Digital Audio Broadcasting is rated
Rated 4 out of
Good sound and build quality.
I really like this pocket dab radio which is easy to operate, fits in your pocket and good battery life. The sound quality is excellent and it hold the signal strength very well. I have given the actual design score as poor because they way you have to remove the back cover to replace the batteries. There is no battery cover, you have to pull off all of the back cover which is a pain when on the move just to replace the batteries. Also this leaves the radio susceptible to damage by removing all of the back cover.
I cannot believe Philips could have been so sloppy in the design process. No other electronic product I have owned involves removing a back cover. Every other product has a convenient battery compartment.
You get three spare back covers on the Philips, red, blue and black because after a certain amount of use they need replacing because of the poor design.
