Summary: I've only been using it for about a week, so don't really know about the battery life, but the reception is really good. I had bought another small radio from Walmart (in store), but had to return it because I couldn't pick up the stations I like to listen to. This little Sangean picked them right up. As others have stated, the ear buds are a little large and I have a hard time keeping them in my ears.
Summary: Love my little headset. It has 2 fm selections so you can program 10 fm channels and 5 am. Works nice and you can lock it so you don't accidentally change channels or have it go on when you put it away and come back and have a dead battery. Really like it. Very slim and sturdy. Already dropped it several times and no problems.
Summary: I had read about what great reception the Sangean gets. I bought it to be able to listen to ESPN Sports talk at work. I listen to it on the way to work and can hear it very well in my truck when I pull into park. I figured I'd be able to listen to it at my desk. No such luck. I can't get either their AM or FM feeds that are available from inside the office. Bottom line a $5 AM/FM would be just as useful.
