Summary: I have owned this radio for more years than I can remember and it is wonderful. The sound is clear and the reception is better than more expensive radios I own. I am glad it is still made because I want to get another one for the house simply because of the good reception.
Summary: I bought this radio last x-mas We use it everyday in the bathroom but not in the shower only because we don't need to. Great reception actually better than the Bose We JUST changed the batteries last week!
Summary: I had one of these that served me well for about ten years. When it finally died, I of course decided to replace it with the same unit (minus the TV Band). When it arrived, I noticed a few subtle differences. The hanging strap wasn't nearly as long, placing the unit way above my head, making it hard to see and operate the controls. The volume knob was stiff and hard to turn; the old one was silky, like on fine audio equipment.
Summary: My son-in-law had a very old shower radio that was actually taped together. Why he used it, I don't know, since it only (barely) received one station. The Sony Shower Radio was the VERY BEST gift he received. He couldn't be happier!! He now receives many stations, in addition to the weather band, which is useful, as he works outside. I/he cannot come up with any "cons.
Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception
Summary: I have to buy one of these every couple of years. After 2-3 years of sitting in the shower, some of the buttons will stop working, or something else goes wrong, so we replace it. Mind you, I'm not complaining. For it to take the abuse it gets, 2-3 years indicates a very durable device. Simple to use, sufficient bells and whistles to meed the needs. For a shower radio, this is the best. Simple and sweet.
Summary: I just bought this and received it in the mail today and it already doesn't work! At first I thought it was the batteries but the clock is flashing 12:00 and none of the buttons work. Tried to set it, took the batteries out and tried again several times, still doesn't work. Definitely a mistake.
Summary: This radio replaced an identical one I had but I had broken. It has good sound quality and has never had any water issues despite may years in the shower. The only issue I have with it is the external antenna. It tends to get caught in things.
Summary: Its a sony usually expensive but in todays world it worth the difference so far I does exactly what I wanted it to do. I have it my bathroom my home is solid concrete and I am getting the station that I wanted its over a month old and still going strong I would have given it another star except for the price.
