Summary: I was lead to believe that what I ordered was a SRF-HMO1V model TV/WEATHER/FM/AM WALKMAN. I've owned two previous units of this model and find it superior to the unit that was sent. Despite the fact that the HMO1V no longer functions as a TV audio receiver, its a lot easier to use for radio station selection, etc. I would like to find another used but good condition example of this unit.
Summary: This review is tempered by the fact that my wife loved her Walkman radio and used it every day. The Walkman we purchased was in good physical condition. It was a slightly newer model than the one my wife had previously -- with some better features and some that she did not like as well. It was lighter which she liked, however, it was configured slightly differently and did not fit her head quite as well. This was not a big issue.
Summary: I searched for these Sony SRF-H11 S2 Sports AM / FM Radio Walkman with Rear Reflector Headphones - able to find them at Amazon.com and they are GREAT - has lasted a long time (my husband is very rough with these things) but these headphones are durable - clear, nice sound. PERFECT!
Summary: This radio and headset is all in one unit; it is nearly impossible to find the single unit which also has both AM and FM receivers. Sony has again made a great product - just too bad they stopped making them.
Summary: This is my 2nd time to buy this Sony Walkman, because my first identical Walkman was stolen. The radio stations come in perfectly clear, whether I'm taking my morning walk listening to Rush Limbaugh or I'm at an L.A. Dodger game in the evening. It fits securely over your ears and behind the neck so that it does not sit on top of your head and flatten your hairdo. And there is nothing that you have to dangle from your neck or hold in your hand.
Summary: After a great deal of searching for a wireless AM/FM headset to wear at the gym, I found this to be the best unit available. I would have appreciated knowing that it is quite dated, as the promotional materials enclosed within the packaging had an expiration date of 5 years ago, but apparently nothing better has been developed by Sony since then.
