London 5th March 2010: A poll of over 2000 PURE Siesta Flow users has shown that birdsong is the most popular alarm tone after the traditional beep. More than double the amount of people chose birdsong to wake up to than any of the other 365 sounds you could choose from. Church bells, balloon squeak, WWI siren and chimes also made the top five alarm tones while violin screech and kettle whistle were among the least selected sounds.
The RSPB’s Bryan Bland says: “”We are not surprised that birdsong has topped the poll of most popular alarm tones, we love our garden birds in the UK and having it as a wake up call is a great way of bringing the outside in. Songs of familiar birds from your garden are extremely relaxing and a gentle, cheerful and positive way to ease into the day.””
Says Colin Crawford, PURE’s director of marketing: “”Since the extremely popular digital radio birdsong channel went off-air, we’ve been filling the gap by offering birdsong as an ambient PURE sound to fall asleep to via our digital-and-internet-connected radios. The news that birdsong is the most popular alarm tone on Siesta Flow is not surprising and reinforces how popular birdsong is with our customers.””
Siesta Flow, with an SRP of just £99.99, is PURE’s most affordable digital and internet-connected radio to date. A stylish way to wake up to a world of internet radio, digital radio or FM, Siesta Flow also provides access to 365 different alarm tones, one for every day of the year. Despite its compact size, Siesta Flow is packed with useful bedside features including a large auto-dimming display, sleep and snooze timers, touch sensitive controls, four quick-set alarms with dedicated buttons and a handy PowerPort for USB accessories.
