Summary: This is an ok radio except for the following: 1) AM reception needs improvement. Sometimes you must hold the radio in your hand and angle it one direction, and then another, to keep reception on a somewhat even keel. 2) Volume control is digital, controlled by two buttons. There are not enough volume settings. When the batteries are strong and you are in the vicinity of traffic noise, one volume setting is two low and the next one up is too high.
Summary: Like seek feature and general styling. But it has two severe problems that make it unusable. Reception is poor. But, especially bad, the electronic "stepped" volume control has about 30 steps. In a quiet environment, the first volume step is low, the second step is loud, the third step is too loud. The listenable volume should be spread out throughout the 30 steps. Basically, I had two choices with the volume: too low or loud. I'm looking for someone to give it away to.
Summary: I should have known better since I've had problems with two other Coby products. I bought this when the main Amazon site was selling it, for when I'm out walking for exercise. Immediately there were problems. The worst was that the digital radio tuner kept setting itself to the bottom of the dial, and I couldn't get any stations without turning it off and on again a few times.
Summary: Coby CX-9 Mini Digital AM/FM Pocket Radio with Neck Strap, Black After one week the light went out on this radio. I would like to return but too much trouble. The instructions for presetting station are confusing.
Summary: Well, I didn't pay very much for this, and I didn't get very much. The uber-cheap headphones stopped working after a week or two. The reception is ok at best, even when outside. The radio can't seem to handle to cold weather very well and shuts off after about 15 minutes in the cold. Would recommend you spend more money and get something with more quality.
