Summary: One feature that would be good that is not on this otherwise terrific unit is.... auto turn-off after an hour. Falling asleep with this radio means needing a handful of AAA Batt's handy. Unless I missed this feature?
Very Small Walkman with Very Super Radio Quality ~~~

Summary: I could very likely not be more pleased with this *Sony SRF-S84 FM/AM Super Compact Radio Walkman with Sony MDR Fontopia Ear-Buds (Silver)*. It's easy to set-up and control without looking much at included instructions. This is a VERY small *Walkman* ~ likely able to fit into even small pockets ~ less than half of the size of my palm ~ and just as small in mass. I really like the sleek matt-black and brushed-silver looks as well.
Summary: This Walkman is TINY. I didn't read the dimensions before I ordered it -- 3 x 1.4 x 0.8 inches -- but that's OK because it's performing as advertised. The sound quality is surprisingly good (I've tried it with the earbuds, which are so-so, and with over-the-ear Panasonic, Sony and Sennheiser headphones, with the latter two producing the best results for me); The only downside is that because the unit is "super compact," so are the controls.
Summary: I have purchased small fm radios of this variety for decades which I use running and cyclying, mostly from Sony and Aiwa, and this is the best and the lightest to date. In comparison, avoid similar models from Sony with digital presets because the reception on those is usually inferior. Also, you will likely want to use better earphones than the ones that are provided..
Summary: I enjoy listening to radio in the evening and on my way to work. This radio is very basic and very simple. Most notable is that it has amazing reception. I have tried other radios, some with mp3 players, and they just don't compare for reception. I like that it uses a single AAA battery which is good for about 20hrs. This is useful when I go camping and such. It has a clip on the back to attach to your pocket or whatever.
Summary: We sent this Sony Walkman to my uncle, who is now in a nursing home, and he really likes it. The ear phones help him listen to his radio morning and night, it doesn't bother his roommate and so yes we are happy with our purchase. I am sure we would buy from this seller again.....the service was very good.
Summary: This is the second compact radio walkman we have in our household and I think it is terrific. The sound quality is phenomonal and the size is just perfect for slipping into a pocket. Thanks so much for carrying a wonderful product.
Summary: This item was advertised as 'refurbished'. It came with the FM so far out of alignment it would not operate in stereo, or bring in more than a handful of stations. AM was nonexistent. Someone had merely repacked it and mailed it out, so watch out.
