Top Customer Reviews
NEGATIVE: Doesn't play mp3. Too quiet for some situations. Sitting on the beach, for example, the waves drown out the music unless you are within about 5 feet of the unit. This could be a positive thing if you dont want to disturb the people around you. If you do want to be able to entertain a group of people in a larger area however, this is not an ideal product. The player does not remember your place on a CD or in a track if it is turned off... for most people I doubt this is a problem, but for me, it can be. I listen to hour long, single track mixes from DJs and it would be nice if I could turn it off and then resume my place on the track. If you turn it above 80% volume, it distorts the music (especially bass heavy music).
OVERALL: For many applications, this is an excellent travel radio. It is inexpensive, very portable, and in many situations, works very well. I am not dissatisfied at all and would purchase another without hesitation. I wouldn't buy this radio if you need: 1. MP3 functionality 2. the ability to produce LOUD music
The sound quality is not too bad considering the small size of the speaker. Turning the volume all the way up results in distortion, but the sound gets loud enough to hear across the room before the point of distortion. The radio sounds pretty good on both AM and FM and a lot of stations are received.
I really hope it lasts a while.
One thing: it's monaural, not stereo (don't know about the headphone jack's properties, since I won't be bothered by them). Of course, this radio is so small that any stereo separation would be mostly imaginary anyway.
Of course, this would also make a useful gift to someone for Christmas!
