Performance and use

For a radio of its size and price, the LOGIK LHDR15 has good sound quality and sounds crisp and clear, though it only offers a limited about of volume. The reception is also good on both FM and DAB.

One area where the LOGIK LHDR15 could be improved is in saving and recalling preset stations, which is a bit fiddly and takes a while to get used to.

Another issue is that the display is rather bright so it might disturb you at night if you want to use it as a clock radio. The display is also quite small so you can’t read the time unless you’re close to it.

Pros

  • Decent sound quality for a radio of its size
  • Attractive design
  • Good value for money
  • Small and compact

Cons

  • Saving and accessing preset stations could be easier
  • Feels quite plasticky
  • Display is quite bright so it’s not ideal as a clock radio
  • Display is small so it’s hard to see the time
  • Doesn’t go very loud

Verdict

The LOGIK LHDR15 offers good value for money and has decent sound quality for the price. However, some of the functions are fiddly to use and the LHDR15 isn’t ideal as a clock radio.
