Summary: There is a background scratchy hum that is quite loud. It is the same no matter the source cassette and headphones. The motor is weak too, making tapes run slow and making the fast forward cut out frequently. This player is nearly unusable.
Summary: I purchased this October 2012 but didn't get to use it until July 2013. After playing a few cassettes, it started making people sound like minnie mouse. I tried cleaning the heads to no avail. I contacted the manufacturer since it was under warrantee but there has been no response.
Summary: Not a great portable cassette player....but an okay one. But after having VERY BAD LUCK trying to purchase one of these units from retailers in my area....(compared to that experience), I am very happy with this item. I have bought 3 tape players from retailers in my city.
Summary: This is the worst product. It is a piece of trash. Sound only in the right ear. Lots of static and very poor sound. The company and Amazon should be embarrassed at the quality of this product. I was very grateful that Amazon refunded me immediately. Lea
