Summary: I'm a little disappointed in the reception. I get two or three stations in absolutely clear. The rest are just too staticky. When the battery life starts to fade, I find I *have* to wear it around my neck to get better reception. It serves its purpose just fine for the $6 I paid for it. If it happened to die out in the next few months, I would re-buy it at the same price. It's kind of disposable. A typical Coby product.
Summary: I have been searching here for a suitable AM radio that I can take with me and this perfectly fits the bill. I love that it has a built-in speaker when I get tired of the earphones, a neck strap and a belt clip. It's small enough to fit in my hand. The best thing is I'm able to tune into my favorite news and talkshows. I bought mine at Longs Drugs they have a lot of these thingies.
Summary: If you're tight on the budget and you don't have money to purchase a higher-end Mini AM/FM Pocket Radio, then buy this product. Worth the money, I believe. I've had no problems with this product and I mainly use it for outdoors and during travel. Please read the product info. It is what this product is all about. Works for me!
Summary: Let's face it, this is an inexpensive product and you should not expect much. But given that, it is okay value for your money. Pros: Compact design, option of using speaker or headphones, neckstrap, belt clip. Cons: Reception is not very good at all, will only catch strong stations and even that not very well. Speaker quality is very mediocre. Bottomline: If you want quality, spend $40+ and get a Sangean. But for what it is priced at, I wont complain.
Summary: I have tried using this radio in my house with no luck. I live in a city with multiple radio stations and only one was audible but still had static. I tried it while camping as well. The campground was pretty much in a city where other campers' radios had great reception. I tried hanging the radio from a tree, from the middle of the tent and even around my neck. Nothing worked. The problem with this radio is that when it's in your hand, the radio station sounds fine.
Summary: You get what you pay for. This is a sorry excuse for a mini radio. Tuning is awkward,won't stay on station, poor reception. Pay $15 more and get a Sony Walkman with digital tuning and lock feature.
Summary: I like the good reception; it takes a little bit of pratice to fine tune in radio stations. The stereo earbuds sound cheap; so I recommend buying name brand. Sony headphones really improved the sound quality. The built in speaker sounds cheap, too. The convient neck strap and bet clip make it easily portable. It looks great also. Overall, it's a great value for the money.
