Summary: Very pleased with Coby radio, has great reception even in the building where I use it for treadmill and weight machines. Also use it for long walks in the neighborhood. On the negative side the controls are very tiny and very sensitive volume control but for the price a great buy!
Summary: The buttons that control the volume and the dial are very difficult to reach when you are walking. I dislike it very soon after receiving and after a few minutes of use I tossed into the garbage. I only keep the armband and the base to use with my Coby CX-96 in the future.
Summary: I bought this for my 3x a week gym workouts while I was on the treadmill, tuned in to the gym's TVs. Reception was satisfactory for the TV signals, but was fuzzy for outside FM stations. AM reception was non-existant. But the third week/10 uses, the ear phones were not working. The battery cover pops off with any kind of contact. I'm going to buy something more durable with digital tuning.
Don't bother. You're constantly trying to tune in a your station

Summary: This radio has a very weak tuner. I finally just threw it away and bought a radio with a digital tuner. I can't believe that anyone could get good results with this radio. Maybe they live in a small town with only one radio station and a strong signal. I had so much interference, it was ridiculous. I was always tweaking the station I was listening to to get a good signal. Digital tuners are the only way to go for these small radios and no real antenna.
Cute little radio that is worth more than it costs!

Summary: This fun little radio is perfect for FM *and* AM fans. I was surprised to find that AM radios are hard to hunt down in stores so I came online. After reading reviews for this radio, I could see it was what I was looking for and when it arrived (before the Amazon estimated date) I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be better than expected!
Summary: Bought this to use at the gym, but could only get reception for one of the gym's television stations - and that one was not a clear signal. I tried it at another gym and the signal was worse there than at the first. Now it's in my give away pile and I'm shopping for a portable radio with good reception.
