Summary: great little unit but it only worked for 33 days and it quit working. the radio comes on but when you tune for a station you get nothing. all you get is static on all the bands, am fm fm2 and weather. the really sad thing is amazon won't take it back because the thing broke about five days too late. apparently amazons policy is 30 on electronics. if that is the case i will not be buying electronic items from amazon. sad really!!
Summary: I'm an NPR junkie and enjoy listening to it on morning walks with my dog. I had a Phillips/Nike Sport radio for a decade or so that had great reception and sound quality. It was able to lock in on the strong, local FM signal and make it sound like I was sitting in the same room as the announcers. But after so much use, the on/off button literally broke in and so was time for a new radio.
Summary: As phones are dropping even FM radio support, this is the best AM/FM radio available, only uses a single AAA battery. For those that loves sports, or lives in area far from city coverage (I live in 3rd world country), this a must-have. Great reception, low interference, great sound.
Summary: The AM/FM radio works fine, sensitivity is good and presets are easy to use. The weather band sensitivity is not good, our hard wired weather band radio picks up the weather band without a problem so it is an issue with the sensitivity of the Sony not a reception issue because of where we live.
Summary: The good part is that it does have very good sound. It's bright and full for most of the FM stations. I bought this to use while working around the garage and yard. After having used it for a few months, here are my thoughts to help potential customers on their decision. GOODS: good sound, uses AAA battery (easily change out so don't have to wait for charge if you didn't plan ahead), lots of preset stations, locks in tuned stations well.
