Summary: I bought this as a gift for my roommate who loves to listen to music in the shower. This product seems to serve its purpose. It's much less expensive than many other shower radios, and it works. The sound quality isn't great, and she said something about having to make sure that the volume is up on the ipod because the volume on the outside of the radio doesn't turn the volume up enough. But overall, it's a good product considering what it cost.
Summary: I clicked here to buy this for a friend and was surprised by the low stars from many reviewers. I have had mine for a while and like it just fine. Is it a great sound system?.. no of course not. Its just what you might need in the shower though. I listen to audiobooks or radio, while showering and getting ready. Just remember to turn it off if unplugging ipod or mp3 connection cuz it will run the batteries down faster if you leave it on regularly.
Summary: Neither the specs nor the other reviewers to date mention that this unit receives AM radio, which is important to me, since my local NPR news station is AM only. Like all AM radios, though, the unit has to be oriented perpendicular to a line from it to the broadcast tower. Fortunately the back wall of my shower, behind my shampoo shelf, is so oriented. Anyway, I bought it not for that feature, but to plug in my mp3 player, for which it also works quite well.
Summary: I bought this item for my teenage son to listen to music in the shower. While showing him how to use it, I realized the reception quality of the FM radio is excellent! The sound comes out cristal, with no interferences. I use it now once in a while, when I'm cooking. I recommend it!
Summary: This does exactly what we needed. The only misgiving that I have is the strength of the clip that holds the lid closed. I would buy another if the need arises and the clip does not break too soon.
Summary: I bought this shower radio at Restoration Hardware on clearance for $15. Their products are hyped as sturdy and long lasting. I don't think this one would fit that description, but I took it back so fast, I'll never know. The biggest problem is the "stereo" speakers. They're so tiny and cheap that you won't be able to hear them over the sound of a shower.
Summary: For the first few weeks I was extremely impressed with the product but after a month or two the volume knob stopped working and now I can't get any sound out of the unit. As another reviewer noted the radio tuning got more difficult as time went on, in the end it required constant adjustments to stay on a station.
