There aren’t many DAB radios with a pause and rewind function.
A few years ago, there were several radios on the market with this function, but these radios have since been discontinued.
This could be due to copyright issues, a lack of demand for this feature, or that it’s more convenient to pause and rewind radio when listening online.
Discontinued Radios with a Pause and Rewind Function
Here are some discontinued radios with a pause and rewind function:
- Pure Bug – This radio allowed you to pause live radio and rewind it for up to 5 minutes.
- Pure One Classic Series 2 – This radio allowed you to pause live radio and rewind it for up to 15 minutes.
- Pure One Elite Series 2 – This radio allowed you to pause live radio and rewind it for up to 15 minutes.
- Roberts RD-11 – This radio had a ‘PAUSEplus’ that let you pause live radio for up to 35 minutes.
You can still buy some of these radios second-hand on eBay and Gumtree.
While it’s hard to find a radio with a pause and rewind feature, you can still buy radios with a record function—see some of the best options here.
This means you can record a program and then listen to it again and pause and rewind it as many times as you want.
