Summary: In 2008 I had purchased a Sony Walkman SRF-59, which is the AM/FM stereo version of the Walkman, which I liked and worked well until my workplace was flooded out this year and I lost all of my personal belongings at my workplace. So I needed another little radio for work, and I really only needed FM since pretty much all I listen to are my local NPR stations and a country music station. I came across this Walkman SRF-56 just by accident.
Summary: It is much bigger than I expected. It is my fault not to look at its dimensions before purchasing. I did know its weight, which is reasonable. Considering that some MP3 players with FM tuner are at most half its size, it is kind of an disappointment. But of course at this price...
Summary: good for what i use it for, npr. tuner is clear and smooth to use. it could be smaller, but for the price i guess its fine. its about the size of a large pager. the headphones are junk as expected, but the sound is fine with other headphones. in the price range the competition is cheap badly designed no name junk.
It's about as perfect as a simple little radio can get.

Summary: This radio is pretty much exactly what I expected in purchasing a small radio. It has good reception, handles minor abuse well, and all the switches and dials are in their right places. What more can I ask for? Just an operational tip: This radio is very light weight and has a sturdy clip on the back side. In order to keep it and the headphone wires out of my way I clip it on my shirt behind my neck and put the excess headphone wiring down the back of my shirt.
