The WR-7 costs four times more, and with good reason. This handsome, wood-encased device looks like a miniaturized mid-century modern table radio (think a 1965 KLH). Is sounds amazingly robust for such a small device, has great battery life, and although it only receives FM (no AM at all), it also functions as a bluetooth speaker and has an aux in jack to boot. I'm smitten by this handsome little fella, and would say it's well worth the asking price. I use it primarily for travel. My daughter was so taken with it on our last family trip that she begged to take it to her dorm room this fall. I happily bought another.
I bought the speakerless DT-160 as I've read good reviews and wanted to compare with the two pocket radios I use in bed at night. My trusty little Sony SRF-39 (also speakerless) has given years of excellent service, is a champ at pulling in distant stations, lasts seemingly forever on a single AA battery, provides rich, clear sound via headphones, is a paragon of simplicity, and light as a feather. I also have the CCrane Pocket Radio which sounds just as good in its own way, is similarly excellent in its sensitivity, includes the NOAA weather bands, and - for a digital radio - has an exceptionally well-thought-out user interface, in that (as with the Sony) I can operate all the functions easily by feel without needing to turn on a light. I like the analog tuner of the Sony, as it's fun to spin the tuning wheel and see what comes up; the Crane's push-button is more convenient when I want to hear specific stations. I wouldn't want to be without either, at this point.
The DT-160's build quality is impressive. It's actually on the heavy side for a pocket radio, but nowhere near as easy to use as the CCrane or Sony. The tuning dial is fussy (search and scan require similar yet distinct movements) and dual purpose (the dial pushes in to allow for several other functions), which I find altogether annoying. In fact, I chose the transparent, "prison style" version as it does not include a clock function, which I've read adds yet another function to the tuning dial. The memory preset buttons are on the top of the radio, but the first preset is so close to the headphone jack that it's difficult to get to with the headphones plugged in.
My biggest disappointment with the DT-160, however, is its poor audio quality. I used the same pair of Sennheiser headphones to test all three pocket radios, tuning in at least four local NYC stations (WBGO-FM for jazz, WFUV-FM for rock, WNYC-AM for talk, and WQXR-FM for classical). The CCrane and Sony both sound rich and natural across the board. The Sangean, on the other hand, is overly bright and even harsh. If you're solely interested in listening to talk shows you might be satisfied with it, but I wouldn't recommend it for music.
So, to sum up, I'm sticking with the CCrane Pocket and Sony SRF-39. The CCrane is not cheap, but I honestly think it's worth the extra dough because of the thoughtful user interface and superb stereo sound quality. Sony discontinued its SRF-39 some years ago, but you can easily find a decent used one online. That's how I got mine. I paid $15 and although the case is slightly scratched, it works like a charm. I'd recommend either over the DT-160.
A few other notes: The CCrane Pocket has a speaker, but it's tinny-sounding - far inferior to the $20 Sangean SR-35, in fact - but then the Crane is a true pocket radio. And with the Crane, you control whether the sound outputs through the speaker or headphones via a switch on the side, not by simply plugging in the 'phones, as with the SR-35 and many other inexpensive radios. I don't use the SR-35 for headphone listening because even though it plays through both the Left and Right channels, the sound is monaural not true stereo. Still, with its strong speaker, sensitivity, and analog-style simplicity, the SR-35 is likely the best radio you can buy under $20. Curiously, the adorable Sangean WR-7 does not have a headphone jack.
In contrast, the DT-160CLP gets AM and FM. No auto shutoff. Tuning is more difficult: you have to toggle up or down against a spring, but not too long if you want to keep it from scanning. Volume control is also toggling up or down against a spring. Each toggle results in a click sound - not so good if there's someone else in bed trying to sleep. The audio quality is my biggest criticism. Unlike on the DT-400W, this model has a background hiss/hash/whistle sound that is audible with the volume all the way down, that remains at all volume levels. Once heard, you can't unhear it, especially if you're listening in a quiet environment.
For these and more reasons, including its built-in speaker, the Sangean DT-400W is a better radio and worth its small additional cost.
Are you looking for a radio that "can" pick up the weakest FM stations from 150- 200 miles away? This radio can do it.
Are you looking for a radio that has outstanding selectivity of FM? This radio has it!
Are you looking for a radio that is extremely sensitive on both AM & FM? This radio is!
Are you tired of buying little pocket radios that have overload/images/double tuning that flood in on open FM channels in your area. This does not happen with this radio.
No speaker. ( must use headphones )
Some might find the tuning/set button a bit finicky
No wrist strap or belt clip
Here are a few stations I've picked up over 115 miles away, just with this radio!!
KOND ( 107.5 ) out of Handord California, serving the Fresno market. 167 miles
KHYL ( 101.1 ) out of Auburn California, serving the Sacramento market. 120 miles
KFBK ( 93.1 ) out out Placerville California, serving the Sacramento market. 117 miles
KHGE ( 102.7 ) out of Clovis California, serving the Fresno market. 133 miles
As you can see, it is a capable little bugger. I'm on a valley floor, and your results may vary. I see no reason why FM stations over 200 miles could not be possible, at higher locations. Happy DXing my friends....
