August DAB+ Clock Radio Bluetooth Speaker MB400 – Wake to your Favourite DAB, FM or MP3 Music and Bring it with You – Portable Powered by C Cells (not included) : Feature-rich, doesn’t sound very good

The august has almost everything i wanted from a bed side radio alarm clock at a good price: 2 alarms, dab+, bluetooth speakers, a usb charge point, a dimmable display with plenty of place for information and the option to be woken up by the radio, a buzzer or my own mp3 tracks from an sd card or a usb stick. Ideally, the device could have been a bit smaller and powered via a usb cable, rather than taking up a 240v socket by yet another unnecessary power adapter. Yes, you guessed correctly, the power adapter reduces the voltage down to 5v = usb voltage. The mind boggles, hence 1 star deducted.

This is the second unit i have bought, since the sound quality is excellent and i have been able to secure them at a good price (this radio/speaker is available elsewhere for up to £70). I have one unit as a bedroom alarm clock and radio, and one as a radio in my bathroom- how nice to shower to decent sound. The one drawback is that everything is geared towards inputs- i. Playing things through the speaker, such ad your mobile phonest, usb stick, or mp3 player. Did no-one think it might be a good idea to have a headphone socket??. Sometimes it’s imperative to be able to listen to music without disturbing other people. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a small, robust, easy to use radio with good clear sound, i can recommend this.

Small & compact replacement for bulky mini hi-fi in kitchen. Very happy with the sound & bluetooth functionality for streaming spotify from my phone. My reason for awarding four stars – i think the designers missed out here by not having a remote control for the unit, a little inconvenient, but i knew this before i made the purchase. Would have been a five star review if it came with a remote.

This is a great bedside clock radio,it has all of the features one could expect a product at this price range to have, excellent signal, i don’t even need to pin up the arial. My only grumble is that it’s not immediately obvious how to do things like set alarms and set the time, to set an alarm you need to hold the snooze/dim button until alarm 1 alarm 2 etc shows on the display, once you figure this out from the well written ,clear instructions its easy. However they don’t tell you that the radio needs to be off to do this. The volume knob is very sensitive allowing you to choose any volume level that the radio is capable of, unlike my last radio that had up and down buttons that meant i could only select certain levels. During the initial scan it found 40+ stations, all of which were of a reasonable quality.

  • An alarm clock that forgets the days of the week in odd numbered years, but only in August!
  • The August has almost everything but cannot be charged via a USB able
  • Good sound, easy to use, but why no headphone socket?

Jusy what i need down my allotment. Easy to follow instructions and it picks up 40 dab stations and stores them easily. If had to give one negative that would be the antenna not being the pull up metal type insted its a wire. . Although it does have a handy loop to pin it up in my shed. It pairs easy with my phone so i can use my spotify and pod casts. Its a neat tidy radio thats brilliant for home, garden and shed.

We now have two of these lovely little radios. The red one matches our camper and it comes away on holiday with us. The blue one goes well in our bedroom. I like that it can be powered by mains or battery. I like the sleep mode – you can choose how long you want it to play. I like that the alarm starts quiet quietly and then increases in sound to your chosen volume. The sound quality is fine – not at all tinny. The size is neat and fits in the spaces that we have available.

Sound is fine, and you can use a usb stick to have your own music to wake up. The metadata or filenames are not displayed on the screen though (it only displays rds/digital radio information), and you can only access your music in sequence and try to remember the number. The alarm clock has an everyday/weekdays only/weekends only switch which is convenient. The main problem is with the power : if you unplug the power cord from the wall socket, or if there’s a power outage, the radio will stop and lose all its settings even if you have batteries.Batteries wil only rescue the radio if you unplug the power cord from the radio itself first — not very helpful for power outages.

First radio i have bought for nearly 30 years so i was impressed how far they have moved on, the sound of the mb400 is first class t the point of now being the best sound/music system i own now. I haven’t got my head around all the settings as yet but i am sure that will come with a bit more time. One comment would be it maybe better to include the instructions in the language where it’s being sold, e. G uk sheet of instructions for the uk market and then they could be written in larger print for people who have vision impairment (like me). Packaging was about right although maybe a plain wrapper of some sort would improve the security when being delivered. A well made radio at a fair price and now a valuable asset. Btw i received a £10 off offer (instead of the usual £5 one) for a set of speakers which was really useful, thank you.

Solid unit that is well built. The nfc chip is great for pairing with my lg nexus 5 phone. Sound quality is very good at typical volumes but starts to struggle when cranked up. In my kitchen, it’s only a problem if the dishwasher is on. Controls are not all that intuitive but the instructions are more than adequate to get it tuned in and working. Nice little touch is the ability to dim the display – ideal if used as an alarm clock next to the bed.

I bought this to use on batteries as for bathroom & didn’t want to have to remember to recharge it. Lasted just a few days on cs even with little actual use. It sounds good & looks good but if you want one to use on batteries look elsewhere.

Excellent little radio for the price – beautiful sound, works so easily using the bluetooth, the usb the sleep timers etc- and i love the colour. I havent tried the aux yet, and have only used it with electricity so unsure how long batteries would last if needed. Cannot recommend this little radio enough.

I can’t be alone in struggling to find a decent ‘non retro’ looking dab radio / alarm clock right?to my view, this is well styled, is fully featured and sounds very reasonable for its size. The only reason it does not get 4 stars is the unintuitive user interface – why design in a control that was clearly designed for up / down / left /right / ok functionality and use it for something completely different?it is also disappointing that it only has a single volume control rather than a separate per function – e. Dab radio broadcast levels are different to fm, which are different again to a bluetooth deviceto end on a positive note, it was very pleasant to find the alarm have the option of being only active on weekdays (other options are every day or weekends), though of course a full schedule would have been even better (for those that don’t work a regular monday to friday schedule).

This does the job – it connects to bluetooth, and other devices, it allows you to set two alarms, and it has a sleep function. However, it feels like a cheap and poorly designed radio. The clicking sound when you press the buttons is so loud it wakes the baby up, and the features aren’t intuitive – e. You can switch the backlight off when the radio is playing, but not when it’s switched off. It takes a lot of brainpower to memorise how to use the various features. Also, the bluetooth stays connected and looking for signals all night – so woke baby up (again) having listened to bluetooth going to sleep, because i tried to watch a video on my phone the next morning. Most speakers will time out after a few minutes of receiving no signal.

Dab signal can be easily interfered with by other electronic devices. The most limiting factor, however, is that you can switch the led display off when playing the radio but at night when you turn the radio off for a bit of sleep, even on the dimmest setting the case of the radio itself glows from the light within and your eyeballs are welded to the back of your skull as the entire room is bathed in an eldritch glow. I replaced my old clock/radio with this one as the low-pitched hum it emitted used to disturb my sleep but there is no chance of sleep with this bedside searchlight. Have to use it in the kitchen now and keep searching for something both quiet and dull.

This stylish, retro, funky radio arrived today and it is brilliant and fantastic it looks good and sounds good. The bluetooth connection with my iphone is superb and my mp3 player connects to the usb socket. Sd card slot provides additional favourite music storage. Contrary to lesser reviews it is easy to set up and use, those who beg to differ have not looked at it properly. It really is a little gem, if you are considering a purchase then go ahead, you’ll be glad you did.

What a fantastic sound from this dab radio. We used it as a speaker for spotify on christmas morning and have hardly turned it off since. It’s very lightweight and easy enough for my 9-year-old to set and use.

This is a great little radio/clock/speaker. I needed a modern replacement for the micro system in my kitchen one that would play music but enable me to listen to radio as well. This is a smart, easy on the eye radio and has a whole lot of functions more than i need – i’m not complaining. It also takes a usb, and has bluetooth. Easy to set up, easy to use.

I had high hopes for this purchase. It’s colorful and i like that. But the sound quality is boomy and comes off sounding cheap. It’s got plenty of features that i needed including bluetooth connectivity and dab radio. The antenna is an unattractive spindly long wire that needs to be tucked away behind things. Maybe a great kitchen or workshop radio, but if you’re looking for fidelity audio this is not the one for you.

Surprisingly well made and sounds good. You’ll need to use the manual as the controls are not intuitive but once you have found your way around it has a kind of logic to it that is quick to get the hang of. Should have 5 stars but a few things could be better – if you use an sd card it sticks out at the back and is vulnerable, i wish there was a version with built in rechargeable battery, the battery cover doesn’t fit easily and doesn’t lie snug and there’s the not totally intuitive thing. After all that it’s great value for money, i’ll probably buy another for use in the workshop.

And here why-1) wakes me up mon – fri via it’s alarm to the sound of the radio. But then leaves me alone come the weekend (not like my old one. That thing would blare out rubbish pop tunes whether i was hung over, really wanting a sleep in or not wanting to face the world. We had more than one falling out)2) it’s cute. Do not underestimate the level of cuteness this radio brings. Sometimes i just sit and look in awe of this little radio. No worries just press the dab radio & it’s done. Easy peasy4) it has fancy functions- you can do bluetooth via your phone or fill up a sd card with music. Sounds cool, personally i haven’t a clue how to do those things. Still my old radio alarm clock did not do these things.

Before i had a robertson radio that was not dab. It couldn’t pick up virtually any station for me. So i returned it and got this beauty. It works very well – picks up radio 4, lbc, radio 2 (my big channels). The buttons are plastic, which for the price might be a little offputting, but i’d rather have decent radio. The clock isn’t massive, but you get used to it. I value having a working radio more. Also, the clock dims if you don’t press anything for 15 or so minutes. Sometimes i find it a little too dim.

Works well in my location, albeit i need to move it a bit to get the station signal fixed. Dropping it to 4 stars is because it isn’t the easiest to set up if your not techie minded. Another point to note is when playing the tracks on your usb stick it doesn’t display the title of the track, so looking for a particular one is only possible if you print out your track list first. It has a nice tone to it though.

One thought on “August DAB+ Clock Radio Bluetooth Speaker MB400 – Wake to your Favourite DAB, FM or MP3 Music and Bring it with You – Portable Powered by C Cells (not included) : Feature-rich, doesn’t sound very good

  1. I wanted a dab radio for the kitchen that could take a number of inputs, in particular bluetooth from my mobile phone. 5mm / bluetooth/ memory card / usb. Sound quality is pretty good. It’s not perfect, hence not five stars, ideally would have given 4. So what lost the fifth star?:first it’s not totally intuitive out of the box and i needed the manual to set up the radio presets and connect bluetooth. That said with the manual easy to set up. Secondly i think the power button and the ok buttons should be swapped round. Elsewhere, on remote controls for example, the ok/select button is between the directional selection keys, but on this unit the power button is located in the middle of the directional keys.

    This is the second of these that i have bought – not because of problems or issues, but to put another in a different room. Found it was a good price for a dab radio, sound quality is good and i can connect the phone via bluetooth. My only niggle is that in standby mode it displays the time twice (one is large, the second is a little smaller directly underneath) – i’ve never understood why, but not an issue really.

Access forexternal speakers and a standard aerial socket to fit an external or telescopic aerial not provided. However, it surpasses many similar priced models in performance has dab+ and it looks good.

    After a long time looking for a radio which i could also play my recorded music on from my usb sicks i am so happy that i now have just the right radio. I use this mainly in my summer house and it’s fantasic. Would highly recommend this radio it’s coming on holiday with me next year that’s for sure. The one thing i am not to sure is just how long the batteries last. And whilst it works well and sound is good after playing my music from my memory sick through once it then seemed to play up and was off and on through the sick the second time around so not sure if it was due to power loss, as when i put it onto mains it was ok. That is a draw back but overall a great looking radio and tick all the boxes for me.

    Sounds great, i like that it has so many functions. Relatively easy to use once i read the manual, but not intuitive. Connects well via bluetooth to my phone. The sleep timer is good – i can use bluetooth mode to play music from my phone to go to sleep, and it wakes me up with the radio mode in the morning. It did say in the manual that the radio mode allows specific stations to be set for the alarm, but i didn’t see an option for this when setting the alarm.

My main issue with it is the antenna – even when unwound fully & pinned to the wall, it’s still hit & miss for getting dab reception (not such issue on my other dab devices). It just about does the job, but ultimately you get what you pay for.

    . Needs a strong signal, the controls are not intuitive and the aerial is simply a length of wire. The plastic body feels and looks brittle and ‘cheap’. The sound is thin and not that good with little bass. I guess you get what you pay for and as a budget all singing and dancing radio/bluetooth it does everything it say it will – but just not very well.

    • This would be a higher rate if the pre-set button worked. I set up one radio station but the system wouldn’t allow any more to be input. A factory reset dropped the one radio station that i had set up and then wouldn’t work again. It’s a shame as it’s a tidy radio. It’s just that a key component doesn’t work.
