Product Description

2.5" x 3" x 1.3"

In 1971, Braun launched a series of travel alarm clocks and watches. The infamous German industrial designers, Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs were the masterminds behind the project; and, with their "Less, is more" design philosophy they produced a number of memorable products for Braun including some of the best travel alarm clocks around. Over the last 40 years, Braun time pieces were characterized by their pure, highly functional and timeless design with no superfluous details: Every feature directly reflects a function. Rooted in over half a century of modern design at Braun, the core values of functionality, quality and aesthetics are reflected in all clocks and watches. The strength of clarity and simplicity of their design makes them a pleasure to use and to own. The analogue clocks were manufactured with the intention to prioritize innovation and durability. The beautifully sleek structure and dial illumination, together with the slight graying back of the numbers ensures that the hour arms are clear and easily readable. All the clocks use precision German movements, known for their silent nature and high accuracy. A variety of models use radio controlled movements for complete accuracy of time. A selection of the very best classic clocks and watches have been recreated in keeping with the high standards of quality of the originals. At the same time, brand new designs on both watches and clocks take the collection further than ever before

    Braun Voice Controlled Travel Alarm Clock BlackI bought this to replace the German made Braun alarm that it's designed to mimic. The old one lasted about 20 years. It turns out, this one has a little foil sticker on the bottom that says "Made in China". The voice control feature didn't work unless I held it right in front of my mouth and screamed! (Not good for my wife, who sleeps next to me.) A tap on the case with my fingernail did the job though, so I kept it awhile (and disposed of the packaging). The dial light was much more useful than the little microphone.

    Last week, the alarm didn't sound at all a couple of mornings; just a soft click and then nothing. This week, when it does sound, the snooze just peeps three times and quits. Do the people who make this understand that the purpose of it is to get me to work on time, ...every time!?

    I'd click zero stars for the rating if it was an option. I can get a cheap, badly designed, Chinese made battery alarm at Walmart for ten dollars. Forty-two bucks for this is a scandal! Braun should be ashamed! I hope I can get my money back without the box. The vendor sure shouldn't re-package it for sale!

    Although marketed as the equivalent to the Braun AB30, this clock falls far short of that great clock. The snooze for the crescendo alarm cannot be activated by a button, but only by clapping or speaking. In practice, clapping works, but one must shout or pick up the clock to speak directly into the speaker to activate the snooze. The time can be easily read in the dark with luminous hands, but the alarm hand is not luminous. As the dial cannot be lighted, the alarm cannot be reset in the dark. The clock has a soft audible tick.

    I have an original AB30B purchased in Europe when they first came out in 1990, and have recently purchased from Amazon a re-issue BNC004.

    I have seen a couple of reviews that state the re-issue is made in China where as the original was made in Germany, closely examining the re-issue clock and the packaging I cannot find any marking or sticker which says the re-issue is made in China, the packaging does have an address for Zeon Ltd of London England that is all I can find.

    Looking at the two clocks the numbers on the face of the re-issue are slightly smaller than the original inside the electronics that are visible there is a few differences on the components on the printed circuit board, guessing this is most likely due the advance in electronics in 22 years.

    Both clocks keep excellent time and both respond to voice or clapping to the same volume, we are extremely pleased with the purchase.

    This is the best alarm clock EVER! The snooze feature is awesome and is activated after the alarm goes off by simply saying something like "stop", clapping your hands, or hitting your pillow or mattress with your hand. What more can you ask for? Seamlessly doze back off until the alarm goes off several minutes later and repeat if you want to. This is sold as a "travel" alarm clock but I use it every day, every where (at home or while on travel). Another plus, the clock is so silent. You can't hear the tick tock even with the clock very near your bedside. The Braun Voice Controlled Travel Alarm Clock gets 5 stars. I would give it 10 stars if that option existed.

    I purchased this clock thinking it was like my last Braun clock and clearly I was mistaken. Don't buy I have had it for less than 60 days and it doesn't work properly. I can't even turn the darn thing off. What a waste

    Its quite a bit smaller than I imagined. It's only about 2 inches tall. The hour and minute hands light up at night so thats a good thing, but I cannot figure out how to actually set the alarm. You have one hand just for the alarm, but I'm not sure how to differentiate between AM/PM, and the instructions were unclear at best. If anyone could provide some assistance, that would be wonderful.

    My other identical clocks clearly state in the back shell that they are Made in Germany. This one claims German Movement, design, but nowhere indicates where it is made. Communications with Braun reps informed me that they are now assembled in the Far East. I have had my old ones for over twenty years and they are still ticking accurately. I am keeping the new one just to see how long it lasts. Previous clocks that I had purchased that were made in the Far East only lasted two years or so. This is why I decided to buy the same ones.

    I've owned 3 or 4 Braun Voice-Controlled Travel Alarm Clocks over the past 20 years and they all worked quite well.

    I understand that Braun stopped manufacturing them and that quality declined precipitously.

    I was hoping quality had improved.

    The voice control function on the clock I purchased did not work at all.
