Not too bad for the price
on April 14, 2014
I bought this to listen to NPR while cycling around town. I live in a town of less than 100,000, and so far reception has been crystal clear wherever I go.
A few problems: the armband thingy is complicated to use and rather uncomfortable, so I use the lanyard that hangs it around my neck. OK, but slightly worrisome that it might strangle me in the event of a bike accident.
The battery issue noted by other reviewers is valid: I listen about 2-3 hours a day and the 2 AAA batteries last about 10 days. One irritating feature is that, after setting the clock and punching in all my favorite stations, when the batteries die everything is deleted, so you need to put it all back in again.
But for my purposes it works well enough.
