With the new PocketDAB 1500, PURE Digital is spoiling us. Not only is it placing an almost limitless supply of DAB stations at our undeserving fingertips, it's also providing half-decent Sennheiser headphones to boot - MX300 in-ears are a welcome addition and should perform much better than your standard, pre-packaged tat.Stuff - August '06
