Best AM and FM Reception of Any Pocket Radio I've Tested
, June 14, 2008
This review is from: Sangean DT-400W AM/FM Digital Weather Alert Pocket Radio (Electronics)
I wasn't happy with the FM on my tiny Sangean DT-180 and my Sony SFR-M37V provided similarly disappointing FM. But both were good on AM.
Wanting an upgrade, I bought the DT-400 on Amazon for $61 free shipping. You can choose the built-in speaker or go through the earbuds, which serve as the FM antenna. Without the earbuds or provided wire you will get zero FM reception. I replaced the stock buds with my V-MODAs and the FM was just as good.
The AM and FM of the DT0400 beat the reception of my aforementioned radios. The weather band is a plus as is the Deep Bass button. Also, with TV band obsolete in 2009, the DT-400, which replaces TV with weather, is an important update.
The sound is far better through the provided buds or my upgraded V-MODAs and I recommend using them over the built-in speaker.
Final verdict: Highly recommended.
