The CC Pocket is very easy to use and has excellent overall performance. It has five easy to use memory buttons and it stands upright for convenience and best audio through the speaker. The sides are rubber coated to provide a firm grip and to help protect the radio if dropped. The Stereo/Mono/Speaker switch allows you to listen to the radio via the built-in speaker while using earphones as an antenna for the FM and NOAA Weather Bands. It is not common for a radio to block a strong signal that overrides a favorite weaker station. The CC Pocket has excellent selectivity while providing maximum sensitivity to weak signal. Standard Features: - Clear, precise and pleasing audio for its size - About 75 hours of play on (2) AA batteries (not included) with earbuds. 25 hrs. using 1.25", 16ohm, .5W built-in speaker - Premium earbuds included for providing rich lows and crisp highs while listening - Backlight, sleep timer, clock and alarm, removable belt clip (no auto shut-off) - Battery meter, Signal meter, stereo or mono FM reception indicator - Works with rechargeable batteries. C. Crane loves to design radios for the connoisseur but we don’t want to make radios too complex. The CC Pocket has advanced hidden features not normally found on a pocket radio. Pressing the #1 and #5 keys at the same time, while listening to an AM station, disables the display screen. This allows you to reduce noise and improve AM radio reception under some circumstances. Advanced Features: - NOAA Weather Radio with Alert (disables AM/FM radio while activated) - Five memory pages for AM/FM - Selectable frequency or clock display while listening - Beep on or off - 1, 9 or 10 KHz selectable tuning steps - Selectable Narrow or Wide AM filter - Factory reset control Size 2.5" W x 4.25" H x 1" D, Weight: 4 Oz.

1) The on/off, volume, and headset jack are on TOP, unlike most, so that you don't have to remove the radio from your pocket to use those functions.
2) AWESOMELY simple to use presets... intuitive, UNLIKE others I've tried!
3) Presets, on the front, can be pressed through the shirt pocket to change stations, again without removal.
4) A side lock switch can be operated to prevent accidental 'button pushes'.
5) A side Stereo/Mono/Speaker switch also lets the earphones be used as an FM antenna, while listening to the speaker, if needed. (here in DFW area, with strong FM signals, I don't need to use them)
6) Small radios sometimes struggle picking up weaker AM stations, this one does a great job, in comparison.
CONS: none, CONSIDERING it is a POCKET RADIO. NO, it does NOT produce Hi Fidelity music!! :) but if you know the song, that's OK. Just hum along.
I received it October 19, 2018, and I write this review Dec 20, 2018. I use it on a regular basis, although not all day every day. The battery indicator has dropped one bar, but still working fine. I was waiting for the batteries to fail, before reviewing, since that has been the concern by some, BUT I have had an issue!! SO, I'm reviewing EARLY.
I had a 'preset/digital tuning' issue. I used the 'Product Support' tab on my "Your Orders" Amazon page (VERY NICE AMAZON!). I put my phone number in the "Call me" spot, and almost immediately (!!! within 15 seconds!!!) my phone rang! LONG STORY SHORT, I wound up talking to the Customer Support at CCrane who within seconds told me I had inadvertantly had a button 'long- pushed' while in the OFF position and that it was now set in European scanning mode. Within a MINUTE I was back in business! Wow! (maybe if I'd read the 'instructions' first!!)
Great Product, Great Service from Amazon, Great CUSTOMER SUPPORT FROM CCRANE!!! Yes, I would recommend it, and buy it all over again for myself!
The most important attribute for me was FM stereo sound quality in headphones. For $60+ it HAS to sound good... The Sangean wins hands down. The sound is much wider and richer and the bass boost is like the loudness switch of yesterday... The CC Pocket sound is very narrow and, well, boring. The CC Pocket sounds fine, until you try the Sangean. I was testing with on ear headphones.
The rotary volume dial on the CC Pocket is not as useful as the Sangean push-buttons, especially when walking the dog with the radio in your pocket. More than once I likely shaved years off my hearing by bumping that little volume wheel and momentarily deafening myself. The Sangean pushbuttons are much better.
In my area the CC Pocket did a better job of picking up the NOAA stations, but that is not a deal breaker here in the Pacific Northwest.
The Sangean is a little taller and heftier and feels like a more quality product.
The Sangean can run on rechargeable batteries that charge right in the radio with the included charger. That is handy...
The Sangean display is nicer and easier to read in all conditions.
The Sangean scan/search button operation is also easier to use.
The CC Pocket use of two-button presses to access the deeper features is easier than the Sangean method that requires entering the "menu" system first. However the Sangean has the soft mute feature which did work on some stations (not all).
Notice there is no mention of sensitivity and selectivity here. I did not have an issue with either radio picking up stations that were strong enough to enjoyably listen to.
What I like about this radio: Solid construction. Controls are easier than the old Sangean I have. Sound and reception are just fine for a handheld.
What I don't like about this radio: uses way too much power when 'off'. Fresh duracells last less than 3 weeks with the radio off. A service rep for the company told me (essentially) that this was the expected performance. This may not be a big problem if you're using it a lot. I don't and it chews the batteries much faster than my old Sangean. Of course I can remove the batteries whenever I put it in the drawer.... I didn't need to do this on the old Sangean and the batteries lasted many months.
UPDATE: A different service rep from the company told me that the battery drain I experienced is not normal and sent me a replacement unit. This was handled well. I have the new unit and I'm checking it for battery life. I will update this review with results when I have them.

Got it to have weather alerts when canoeing and camping.
Seems well built. Excellent reception.
Especially like : the antanna which plugs into headphone jack. So simple, yet effective.
Downside is we are paying about 30% more than if we lived in the Land of the Free, and/or the Home of the Brave. ( not counting. exchange rates & taxes) .
Looks nice outside - that why i gave 3.
Sounds is worse than $30 radios (Eton Elite Mini ), and particularly noticeably worse that its more recent/expensive version "CC Skywave" (the latter has very poor air traffic reception compared to Uniden $100 scanner).
"CC Skywave" is 3.5 out of 5 (it is good radio 4 out of 5 rating but due to price I am giving it objectively 3.5).
Once the favourite stations are stored in the memory it is a breeze to turn it on and off, switch between stations, and set the play duration of the chosen channel, all by easy and intuitive feel of the buttons. The other fabulous bonus is that the earpieces on the earphones fit comfortably in my small ear, and give great sound even with just one earpiece in use, which is a bonus if the other ear is buried deep in a pillow. The earphone wires do not get tangled up or become kinked with use, which has always been a major hassle with other makes. The actual radio is so small that I just tuck it under my pillow at night. If I awaken again after the playing time has expired, just one touch of a button will connect to the previous setting of station and duration. And if you have good eyesight the screen is backlit for clarity in the dark. My husband is happy that I am no longer fidgeting with my radio in the middle of the night, and I am happy that the sound quality of speech is so clear that I can have it set to a very low volume and still hear the programme. I give it a 10 out of 10.The battery life is also much longer than with other radios I have had, including expensive Sony ones, when they were made, which they are not any more. I think I shall buy another of these Crane radios to keep in reserve, and today a friend of mine, also an insomniac, is ordering one too, on my recommendation.
I'm pleasantly surprised at the volume that this radio can handle without distorting sound, although it can sound slightly tinny at times.
I received it in a very timely manner and can see that CCrane cares about the quality of their products.
I will update my review about battery life and if there are any problems in the future.
Get this radio for yourself, you won't be disappointed!
I discovered that this radio will fit nicely into a Pelican 1015 case, with a little bit of pruning of the inside rubber liner (would press on certain buttons otherwise).
Looking forward to lots of enjoyable listening at home and while travelling.
Better sound, reception and feel in the hand .
Speaker is quite
