Pure Launches Move 2500 Pocket DAB Radio

Pure Move 2500

Listening to the radio on the move is something a lot of us want to do, and Pure has unveiled the latest of its pocket radios to satisfy this urge.

The Pure Move 2500 is a DAB and FM radio which fits easily in your pocket and offers 14 hours of radio listening while on the move. The svelte unit weighs just 105g and measures 102 x 56 x 15mm. It is slimmer than the previous model, the PocketDAB 1500, and Pure also claims to have improved the audio quality.

However what sets the Move 2500 apart is the support for the DAB standard, so if travelling to countries where the improved standard is supported (such as Switzerland, Italy or Australia) you will be able to take advantage of it.

The Move 2500 has 10 FM and 10 DAB presets and comes with in-ear headphones with noise-isolating technology and separate treble and bass controls. The battery can be charged via a supplied mains adapter or using a USB port on a PC or Mac. It can even be charged via the PowerPort on one of Pure's beside products, such as the Pure Twilight.

The Pure Move 2500 is due to go on sale tomorrow costing around £90 online and from various high street stores.

"...in-ear headphones with noise-cancellation technology..."

I think you should have said 'noise isolating', which as you know is a different kettle of fish.

My trusty Pure Move 1500 does a great job still, but is a bit bulky. Maybe time for an upgrade.

Is it just me? Or is 90 quid for a radio pretty steep?

It depends how much you're willing to pay for DAB - you can buy phones with FM packed-in for much less than this after all. The scores of budget MP3 players out there don't help the Pure's case either. We'll be getting a review model in very soon to see if it's worth the cash. At the very least, it seems to be the dinkiest portable Pure yet.

Well, yes, it probably is. But this is DAB/DAB+ in a portable form with the technology of the leading manufacturer. It is a niche market, unlike MP3 and FM radios, and the price is partly a result of the lack of competition offering any comparable device. My Pure Move 1500 was an old Morgan Computers deal at £35 and I probably would not have paid the full £95. Now I'm a DAB-addict.

Indeed we did mean noise-isolating and to atone for my egregious mistake I am wearing five black t-shirts and a big woolly jumper as the sun beats down on my head. Thanks for pointing it out and it's been fixed.
