Summary: By far, this is the best shower radio I've ever had, and I've had a few. The sound quality is very good. Not stereo, not fantastic, but for a shower radio, definitely very good. I would have preferred that it be a bit smaller. In addition, the main reason I gave it four instead of five stars is that my first one bit the dust after four years. Now compared to other shower radios I've had in the past, that's actually very good.

Summary: Very impressed with the quality feel of this radio. Sound is very good but would have liked a bass booster switch when used outside of shower. Perfect sound in shower stall when placed on the shower shelf with back to wall which gives it a richer sound. When used outside of shower also gives a better sound as well when back placed against a wall. BT works great and so easy to set-up.
Summary: Could be louder as far as volume is concerned. Goes up to volume 30 and I don't like to MAX it out for fear of blowing the speaker so I keep it at 25 when the shower is going. Maybe I should just turn it up a few more notches, IDK. Other than that, meets my every expectation. Bought it for the water proof capabilities and really just to keep track of time because my OCD can keep me washing for as long as 30 minutes...or more.
Summary: Bought this as a gift for hubby. THINKING it would stay in our main bathroom, however its portable and ends up in the other bathroom, the garage...I know I liked it when it was shared. Battery seemed to last a very long time, great reception, great sound, heavy duty and stable so I don't feel like it will fall on my head when hanging on the shower head area. I told my husband a good gift from him to me would be this same radio that STAYS PUT in our main shower.
Summary: Very nice radio, & a good value. Appears solid, well-constructed, & thoughtfully designed. Intuitive, uncluttered controls. The display shows the time and "on" status when the radio is playing. Bluetooth connectivity is a cinch, and works well, although the volume is lower (maybe 25% less) than when the FM or AM is being used.
Summary: Sangean is known in the radio business for high quality radios. They are not some fly by company. If you are looking for a multi-use radio with bluetooth this is it. The only issues are - It is thick and uses big D cell batteries. Buy the rechargeable ones because this radio will need them frequently.
