Summary: I've had this little radio for years and sleep with it under my pillow every night. This has fallen out of the bed numerous times, and still works great. Battery lasts for many hours, as I might change it once every three months after constant use. As a person who works on a flip-flop 12 hour shift schedule (days/nights), I would be sleepless without this little radio under my pillow.
Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Summary: Quite possibly the worst radio I have ever owned.I don't mind the poor sound quality, but after less than one year the volume control cannot be controlled. Turn on the radio and hope you get sound without a blast of static.It is impossible to adjust the volume. Save your money and buy something else.
Summary: I bought this at [...] after reading good reviews. The one I have is mono and not stereo, and you use it with earbuds or rather only one earbud. You can also use with earbuds.On the beach, you get much static and not great sound quality.It replaced a Coby that had great sound but broke within a relatively short period of time.
