If you’re in the market for a retro-looking DAB radio capable of Bluetooth streaming, View Quest is here to help. The British-based developer has just announced two new DAB radios called Hepburn and Bardot.
No their full names aren’t Audrey Hepburn and Bridget Bardot, but the era of those actresses is clear in the style of the radios. Both feature DAB+ and FM radio, Bluetooth for streaming, dual alarms and an iPhone or Android remote control app - some competition for Pure's newly announced Evoke D4 radios which have virtually identical functions.
The Hepburn will come in black, cream and red. The Bardot, which looks more handbag-like, will come in cream only. Both can store 30 station presets for easy access. They also feature a USB port for charging devices, a kitchen timer, and a 3.4mm audio jack for any device that doesn’t have Bluetooth but does have music.
Both radios are battery powered and offer 25 hours on continuous play. Pick one up from Selfridges or at the Apple Store from December for £150.
