Groving while you're Moving!

klueoverlap, Amazon
27 July 2010
  • Summary: I use this everyday when I work out! My club has TV's with FM-sound via antenna's, so I have preprogramed those stations in, for when I am on the treadmill or other stationary machines. I also use the other preset stations for my favorite music, if I am working the free weights, or jogging on the track. I wouldn't be able to stick to my workout plan, without it!

Fun Radio for On the Go

P. Mitchell "Halo", Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: I like the radio. The armband stays in place while I jog and I like the fact that I can program my favorite stations and the sound is good. I generally get good reception except, as with any radio I suppose, you will get static around some gym workout equipment. So, all in all, I'm happy with it.

One of the Best AM/FM sports radios

Lewis Amack "Lew Amack "Polymath" (Mo..., Amazon
5 May 2009
  • Summary: This item is better than the Sony SRF-M37V. It has better reception, especially in the hills of the Los Angeles area. I don't need iPods, since I want live NPR and DJs. Currently, the number of such "walkman-like" electronics devices is far smaller than was the case ten or twelve years ago, and I don't know anything better, yet this item is also probably discontinued.

Not Good For Train Commuters

Harv, Amazon
13 April 2009
  • Summary: Out in the open air this radio is fine. But I bought it to use on an above-ground commuter train. Very poor reception on major AM stations and I frequently have to twist it one way or another as the train moves along to hear anything at all, and even worse reception inside my office building. If you need a radio for indoor or in-train/bus use, this is not the one!

FM Reception is poor and headset uncomfortable

Joseph Ellsworth "Algorithms Scientist, Renew..., Amazon
15 March 2009
  • Summary: I tried this in downtown Seattle where I ride my bike from the ferry up to pill hill. It get's very poor reception until up on the hill. I have a 10 year old analog GPX AM/FM receiver which works fine in the same area. The headset ear buds hurt my ears so much I can only wear it for a 10 to 20 minutes.

  • Summary: I have tried one Sony radio after another but they would not pick up the stations in my gym. This radio works well. It receives a strong signal. The sound quality is decent.

Excellent quality

Ann E. Renken "Annie", Amazon
25 January 2009
  • Summary: This is one of the best purchases I've made from Amazon. I bought it to use when I workout at the gym. It's light weight, small but the sound quality is excellent. I would recommend this product to anyone that wants to 'rock out' while they are working out!

Does the job

1 January 2009
  • Summary: Worked as advertised at a reasonable price. Good reception, which is what we were looking for in an exercise radio while we work out or go for a walk.
