What makes a Roberts?
Since 1932, Roberts has set out to make audio products that give you more than just a listening experience. We know that when a product looks, feels and sounds sensational, everyday listening can change your day, set the mood and style your home.
Sound you can see
Every Roberts product is designed to be seen, touched and heard. From the iconic fifties-style Revival retro range, to cutting edge wireless speakers – we keep pushing our products to look as good as they sound.
Our audio origins
Founded nearly 90 years ago by good friends Harry Roberts and Leslie Bidmead, Roberts Radio began handcrafting portable radios – initially producing just three radios a week. Today we’re the UK market leader in portable radios, still delivering on the original Roberts philosophy: never compromise on quality and keep pushing the boundaries.
A Roberts is designed to last. It’s a concept that leads to conscious choices about how we create our products – from high quality materials, and a continual focus on ways to reduce our environmental impact. The Planet Mark certification, showing our endeavours to reduce carbon emissions, is a step in the right direction on what is a committed and longer journey.
We proudly carry our Royal Warrants
Recognised for excellence, quality, service and innovation – we’re very proud to have been granted two Royal Warrants as manufacturers and suppliers of radio receivers to Her Majesty The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales, since 1955 and 1985 respectively. So from your place, to the Palace, Roberts proudly has its place in British homes.
Bringing the joy of radio to visually impaired and blind people
We’re extremely proud to design and manufacture radios for the British Wireless for the Blind Fund. For over 90 years, the fund has been dedicated to raising awareness of the isolation experienced within the blind community, and uses radio to break down barriers with the outside world. To learn more, or find out if you, or someone you know, could benefit from one of the specially designed sets, visit blind.org.uk.
Since 1956 the Roberts Revival has been a design staple in British homes. Originally modelled on Harry Roberts’ wife’s handbag, the iconic style – with signature gold accents, minimalist shape, handcrafted wooden cabinet and range of colours – looks as good as it sounds.
