Excerpt: I've been using a similar radio for a number years when I"m out in the field and in my stand while deer hunting. My son saw my radio and commented he to wished he had one so he could listened with an ear phone to The Green Bay Packers play on Sunday afternoon, while we sit up in our stand waiting for the big buck.GREAT IDEA FOR CHRISTMAS!
Pros: Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Summary: Ear phone jack is mono. I hate that. Sound will only come through one side of ear plugs. Volume control is way too sensitive. Volume sound could be a little more mellow. Reception is about what you would expect. Radio enclosure is fine. The mono ear phone jack is my biggest peve.
Excerpt: I bought a $ Tivoli Model Two stereo radio here last year. It sounds nice for playing recorded music, but it is useless as a radio in my concrete building. Its tuner and chintzy wire antenna just won't grab the stations I want to hear. But this little Sony is great. The telescoping antenna seems to help a lot. I get a strong, clean signal from all around my home.
