What the designers say
“When we looked to upgrade our original Hepburn the one thing we’d never change is the classic styling, if you imagine a radio shape you undoubtedly think of our Hepburn. Instead we’ve improved the acoustics even further on a radio that was already a Which? Best Buy and moved to a more practical rechargeable battery option. So we’ve taken a classic and made it that little bit better.”
- Jonathan Merricks CEO & Creative Director
