Little radio-big sound

Judy B., Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: We wanted a radio that could take the moisture in the bathroom. We don't keep it in the shower, just on a shelf. For a little radio, it really sounds great! We like it so much that we bought another one for our other bathroom.

Fine shower radio.

G. Escallon "GECA", Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: This is my third Sony shower radio I buy, and the second of this model. I had to replace the second because it started to fail after many years of use, which I had bought it directly from Sony at a much higher price. But as it is not easy to find a digital shower radio without CD, cassette, etc., I found this the best shower radio I can find. Its reception is fine and I recommend it for people who just want a plain shower radio.

Great little radio

Txnwoman, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought my first Sony Shower Radio back in 2001. It lasted close to ten years and was somewhat abused during that time. This little guy is compact and easy to carry. I take it outside when I work in the yard and have one just for the shower. Batteries last 4-5 months with everyday usage. I really like this little guy.

If you want a portable radio for on a boat, this is perfect

Bob, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Excellent for BOAT. I found this to be excellent portable radio for that, because: - splash-proof (I hope. If it's made to handle humidity of a shower, I assume it can handle wet fingers & occasional splash) - The white color of exterior keeps it from getting too hot in the sun. - The white plastic exterior is very glossy as tho it is clear-coated, makes it smudge resistant & easy to wipe it off it need to.

Great product!

Books & Bread, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: I replaced the quite new $17 shower radio that had NO (zilch, nada) reception, with this terrific one. The quality is worth the larger price. All my preferred FM stations are coming in loud and clear. Thank you, Sony!

Solid Shower Radio

Rachel, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: It does what it's supposed to do! Sometimes the antenna falls down (it just sticks on the wall with a small suction cup), and I hear a lot of static. But when the antenna is up, the reception is usually fine. Good volume, easy to use, so far, so good! Hope it lasts awhile.

Exactly what I needed

John A. Wroblewski, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: Compact, but has very good sound quality for being mono. Well made, quality shows through. Stations come in strong and clear. Digital tuning is great and the weather band comes in handy.
