Sweet little radio

Adam Aday, Amazon
2 November 2014
  • Summary: So I just needed a basic radio with an audio-in jack that's small enough to stash just about anywhere. This is the one I picked out, and it works great. It's hand-held size, I can easily tune into most of the usual stations around here, and when that gets old I can plug in an analog audio source. With fully charged batteries the volume can get pretty loud, although the sound quality isn't amazing.

Bought it for AM radio, and it's great

Anthony Narlesky, Amazon
26 June 2014
  • Summary: Just wanted something small to listen to baseball games in my area. This is a little bigger than a smartphone, and receives good reception. Speakers are small and do not sound very good for music, but it is adequate and convenient since you can connect a portable device (iPod, tablet, whatever has a headphone jack). I connect my phone or iPod to it using the supplied phono cable and play music while doing chores or cooking.

Very good radio

M. Nist, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: This is the best-performing small-size portable radio I have ever bought, and I have bought a lot of them. The tuner gets more stations, the volume adjustment works more smoothly at low volumes, and the radio has many more features and capabilities than most radios .. it is highly versatile. The drawback is that the controls are small to the touch and not very user-friendly. However I got used to that. I lost mine ...

A good basic AM/FM Radio

J. Rutter, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: We needed a basic AM/FM radio for our dogs to listen to while we are at work. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it helps to have a radio on while we are out of the house. Its very small, which is a plus and it works - it's very basic. The image makes it seem bigger than it is, the only negative is that it seems to go through batteries pretty quickly.

Small compact, ok sound, very small buttons

YadaKing, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: This radio is ok for its size and price. However, the buttons are really tiny. Hard for seniors to change stations. It's nice to have the line in, but the speakers are not much better than the iPhones speakers. No AC adapter, only takes 2 AA batteries.
