To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The AM radio station tunings on this model are not compatible with Australia and cannot be changed. And now I have to ship it back to North America. Very inconvenient. Stop selling this product Amazon Australia! Zero stars if I could.
I like the compact size of this radio! Absolute great and the reception is good enough for city use. Can't say outside the city but I like it so far. I keep it in my backpack and I wear it for my lunch walk for sure...I'm sick and tired of my own music so listening to jazz or classical music on a local FM radio station is great...and yes...I'm using the belt clip and proud of that! Old school...of course I use headphones mostly-the little speaker is barely good enough but ok. I may mount it on my bike and listen to some music for my morning bike ride..but it's all plastic so it won't survive a drop for sure. I'll just have to be careful. I have a few radios but this is the most portable one and this is why I bought it. The digital display is great and I already chose my favourite stations. Battery life is great too. A good value for a real portable radio. If you don't need a portable one then choose a bigger one with a better speaker.
I had went through all of the reviews on a lot of portable radio and decided on this one and i am glad i did i find it expensive but its worth it i find it goes loud enough if your going for a walk for this size of radio , i am using it everyday more than 3hours a day , i was dissapointed at first i was not able to get fm station with a lot of static so i did not noticed the antenna its just like a cord i saw it and did not know what it was for anyways i look in the book once i put it on my radio it did a big difference i get the fm station clear now i was a happy camper :) so i guess for me i need that antenna on always for fm station would recommend it and would buy again
I bought this as a replacement to the very same model I have owned for nearly a decade. I listen to the CBC every day all day. This radio lets me listen on the headphones or over the built in speaker. It has many clever design features and is really durable (my old one was dropped too many times yet kept going). Sangean has a good warranty and will replace or repair an old one for a flat fee of $25. I now have a spare. In looking at the competition, there really isn't any with the features and quality of this one.
the AM reception is sub-par. I'm in an urban area and the larger AM signals do not come in as clearly as the reviews might suggest. I should have bought the Sony or at the very least the inexpensive Sangean SR 35. It's small, has a well built case and looks to be quality, however, the sound just not what it should be for the price.
This is good product from sangean I have ordered it on 24 February, 2015 and exelent delivery on 04 march from USA to Delhi. Very Good delivery and packing was also amazing. But it is not compatiable synchonize with Indian frequency. Espacially AM frquiency is not for India because indian frequency is avaible on 09 Khz step up or down but this unit is design to search AM frequiecny 10Khz step up or down. For example India station vividh bharati medium wave is 1368 Khz i Delhi or nearbly areas. But this unit will not stop on 1368 it will stop on 1370 Khz. But FM frequency is OK. So I want to return it if possible and trying to take regund as this is not suitable for me living in India becuse I bought it for digital reception for AM. Updated : I e-mail to SAngean Technical head, USA. They send me e-mail to set Indian frequency. I follow the steps. Now it is OK and my set is working fine with 09 Khz frequency. Thanks to Sangean to giving solution.
Bought this to replace a Sony ICFP26. Volume dial broke on the two units I’ve owned so I thought it was time to give Sangean a try. Glad I did. Much more feature rich and easy to use. Good solid build quality as well. It may be more money, but it’s worth it.
It does exactly what I was looking for and seems to have a good range of stations in both AM and FM. I use it at the gym and for listening to sports shows on the radio. I arrived very quickly and in good condition.
- very light, I don't notice it in my tool pouch - Great FM reception - Impressive battery life, got a couple of weeks out of two AA - AA batteries - Sounds really good, better than I expected, for something so small. - Easy to program
Bon rapport qualité /prix. Fonction programmable pour arrêt après 90 minutes d'écoute. Le son est de bonne qualité pour un appareil si petit. Piles AA très efficace et dure longtemps. Facile de programmer les stations préférées. Il y a un clip pour attacher à la ceinture qui est très pratique.
