Pull up your favorite radio stations with the AM/FM tuner.

Auto-stop function saves batteries when a tape's over.

Stereo Cassette Playback
Enjoy all your favorite cassettes at home or on the go, whether you're addicted to books on tape, picking up the latest underground cassette releases, or looking to revisit a box full of dusty mix tapes. The CX-49 features an auto-stop function, so it'll turn off at the end of each cassette rather than sit there wasting batteries.

AM/FM Tuner
It's always nice to have options--tune into your favorite radio station when the tape's over with the built-in AM/FM radio tuner.

Belt Clip
If you're doing some gardening, cleaning, or anything requiring two hands, just use the built-in belt clip to keep the CX-49 at your side.

Powering Options
The CX-49 runs on two AA batteries (not included) for portable use, or you can pick up a 3V adapter to power it from a wall socket.

Headphones and Earbuds Included
A pair of lightweight basic headphones are included, along with some earbuds for those who prefer in-ear listening. You can, of course, opt for your own favorites with the standard 3.5-mm output, or even take a line to your stereo's aux input.

What's in the Box
Coby CX-49, headphones, and earbuds.

My Sony Walkman finally stopped playing tapes, although the radio still works, after many months of books on tape and radio that gets me through housework, gardening and other chores. But, the only cassette recorder I could find when I went to replace it was this Coby CX-49. Halfway through a book and desperate to keep going, I bought it. The radio never gets in my favorite station without static (the old half-dead Sony is about a billion times clearer) and after owning the Coby for six days, I was sitting still in a chair when suddenly the tape starts distorting - turns out that, despite fresh batteries, one of the spindles has stopped turning. And it never started again. Don't waste your money like I wasted mine. I am now scouring the web for a stash of Sony Walkman cassette players I can buy up and hoard, because Coby is no substitute.

This super-cheapy machine is sold under at least two brands that I know of: Coby and Craig. I purchased some old audio books only available on cassette and it had been years since I had had a Walkman, so I purchased one of these. The device plays AM, FM and cassettes.

The indicator for the radio tuner is virtually invisible, but possibly it's an assembly variation. Reception on the two broadcast bands is average, nothing exceptional.

Cassette performance is quite poor. First, there is an electrical buzz in the background. I switched headsets and it remains. Worse, the speed at which the cassette turns varies quite dramatically, even with the same tape. Part of the time, turning the tape on and off will correct the problem, usually not. The music and audio tapes that have exhibited this problem have run well on other cassette units. At least for audio work, it's only irritating. It would be maddening with music tapes.

Battery life appears average.

For this price, of course it's Chinese-made. It is a minimal machine and performs to its price.

I wasn't even going to give this one star but have to select something. I've been though a lot of personal cassette players, from the most expensive to low end. None of them survive being dropped without some problems. I decided to buy this one because it was so inexpensive, figuring it was a throw-away once it was dropped. However, the sound quality is terrible, plus the speed varies, even when I switch batteries. Luckily, I purchased it locally and I'm returning it. Save your sanity and $$... this is JUNK.

for a portable radio cassette, it passes muster. had it about a month. gets decent reception of those harder to get stations, say npr from over the hill for example. craftsmanship is what you'd expect from a player of this cost. my last portable radio cassette lasted 10 years for half the price, a "york" product. this works if you don't want to shell out hundreds for a portable fm mp3.

On the plus side, it plays cassettes. The negatives: no rewind feature; seriously poor sound quality with lots of background noise; frequently won't play a tape until it has been removed and replaced a few times; loose belt clip doesn't stay fixed to pockets well. All in all, not worth the five bucks.

I bought several of these to use in an elementary classroom. I have many books on cassettes & students listen to them as part of our reading time. The players have stood up to daily classroom use without fail so far. (70 school days) Easy for students to handle with only 3 buttons and easy load/unload. Students only get frustrated at how LONG it takes to fast forward a tape compared to their personal ipods, etc... I always remind them that this WAS fast in the 1980s compared to 8 track tapes!

I bought this only for the cassette option. I needed it only to listen to study lectures...lasted only 4 hours. First, it kept shutting off automatically then it just plain wouldn't work. Sound was poor also...kept popping. Thought it was the poor quality headphones so I exchanged it for better earbuds...still the same popping noise. Don't waste your time or money on this. Very frustrating. Amazon was good to work with, refund was easy and fast.

I found some old college mix tapes so I needed to buy a player for them. The Coby CX49 perfectly recreates the experience of 1998. I don't get all the negative reviews for this product. You just bought an analogue media player with built in AM/FM receiver and a belt clip. It's bulky but astonishingly light. The "earmuff" headphones and earbuds were a nice touch but the earbuds were clown shoes awful so I put both immediately in my Emergency Headphones Repository.

Listen, it's a Walkman. You're going to get an audible hiss when you play your tapes. It's going to emit a low buzz as the gears grind. This is the high water mark of cassette player technology; they're not going to get any better. You can see where the high water mark broke. Goodness knows how many shady Bangkok auction houses the molds and machine parts changed hands in before the fine people at Coby put this into production. As far as dead media devices go I am completely satisfied.
