Sangean H201 Waterproof/Shower Radio
Weather still plays a sometimes dangerous role in our lives. The internet and television are usually a good source of information, but in some weather emergencies and power outages a portable radio is essential. The H201 receives all 7 NOAA weather channels and has a siren function that will alert you during extreme weather conditions or emergencies to help you be prepared and safe.
This extremely portable radio has great sound and excellent reception quality that is achieved with a built in AM and a pigtail FM antenna and runs on two D-cell batteries that will last a long time without having to change them. The push-button controls are easy to operate and the speaker is impervious to any wet environments. Built with a sturdy cabinet, this radio can be taken anywhere. With its DSP Tuner and 20 presets (10 FM, 5 AM, 5WX) all your favorite stations can be easily and accurately stored. Other great features include built-in timer (1 to 120 minutes), a built-in LED flashlight, battery power indicator, large easy to read LCD display, real time clock, emergency buzzer, auto seek and adjustable sleep and snooze timers.
This radio will actually float, is submersible and meets JIS7 waterproofing standards that are equal to marine grade radios. The H201 is so versatile that you can enjoy it in virtually any environment wet or dry.
An easy-to-read large LCD display shows you the station you're tuned to, current time, frequency band, memory pre-set, volume level, power level indicator and timer setting. The segment-style LCD screen measures 3.34" x 1.41" and is backlit and easy to read, and can be seen from across the room.
The DSP Tuner provides great reception, with its built-in AM and pigtail FM antenna you'll get those hard to receive stations. With 20 memory presets (10 FM, 5 AM and 5 WX) you'll have all your favorite stations a push button away.

This radio has a solid feel, nothing flimsy about it and I like the way that the handle rotates down to hide in the back. This radio has good sound for the size, no complaints, but it is not great. This is not a boom box so you are not going to hear it across the backyard but it fills a room nicely. It is great for the bathroom and can be heard over the shower.
I like the digital controls with the station presets. It would be nice to have more than 5 per band but for me that is a minor fault.
The radio has reasonable reception even with the antenna stowed away. When the antenna is extended the reception is very good. Note, the antenna is not the telescoping type but is a wire that is stowed near the battery compartment when not in use. In some ways this is less convenient but on the other hand it is easier to hide the extended antenna. For use in the bath or bedroom I personally like this style antenna better than the telescoping type.
The built in single white LED flashlight is reasonably bright and will come in handy in an emergency or camping. There is also an alarm siren that emits a piercing sound but ... why? Perhaps to annoy the cat.
The radio has a clock, a convenient timer, and an auto off sleep timer but no built in alarm clock. This isn't really a travel radio but for car camping trips I plan on bringing it and an alarm clock would potentially be useful but that is a minor fault.
For me this is a nice portable that is good for Bath, bedroom, kitchen, and listening to ball games in the garage.
I have tried four other "shower radios" before finding the Sangean. None of them performed well. Two of them simply died upon getting wet. Not even a very expensive model from The Sharper Image performed as well nor as consistently as this unit.
I live more than 35 miles outside of Washington DC in a very rural and mountainous part of the state. Radio reception here is poor even under the best of circumstances unless you are seeking one of the "big boys" in the city. Even with a high quality receiver there is a lot of bleed over of adjacent station frequencies as well as frequency drift as the day progresses. The station I was after is nearly 40 miles away in an even more rural area. Even with a high end home stereo connected to a large external, directional, FM antenna in the attic this station is difficult to receive consistently.
The Sangean received the station right out of the box albeit very weakly until I unfurled the built-in external antenna. That station now consistently comes in well, rain or shine, winter or summer. Positioning of the external antenna is very critical. This radio's receiver isolates stations very well which is an amazing feat for any portable radio in this class of equipment. This feature is so helpful, that I listen to two stations that use the same frequency. One station is in Virginia while the other is in Wilkes Barre, PA. By simply repositioning the antenna, I can listen to either station without cross talk from the other station.
The battery life of the four D-cell batteries is exceptional. After more than a year on the original unit I purchased, the power indicator has not even dropped 10 percent from a full charge and this radio gets a lot of use every single day.
The supplied mounting hardware attaches the radio very securely to the wall if you wish. The very clever handle also makes it easily hang from the shower curtain rod or towel bar in those situations when you want a temporary, but secure attachment.
It has 5 digital presets for each band (AM/FM) so that you can easily lock in your favorite stations without the miserable and imprecise dial tuning of so many other portable radios. The tuning is rock solid and there is no frequency drift that usually plagues most other radios advertised for shower use.
The sound is very strong and clear even at low volumes. You can also play it loudly enough that even the most demanding "rock your socks off" teenager will be gleefully singing in the shower. If mom and dad don't put the kibosh on the shower concert, that is.
Lest you think this is a review of the Sony, I will now describe the Sangean's strengths and weaknesses relative to the Sony. To wit, the Sangean doesn't sound as good, but it's decent. I am a veteran audiophile and musician and I can live with it happily. It just has a smaller speaker than the Sony and it shows in the overall timbre as being weaker on the bottom end. But then again, I had no illusions of this being anything but a radio for the shower, and what sound is there is pleasant enough. The speaker grille is louvered to protect the speaker element from water coming in a downward direction and this directs the sound downward, as well. For best sound, mount the radio at or above ear level (although I didn't as I wanted my children to be able to reach it).
Reception is almost as good as my GE Superadio III. That's saying alot. There is no suction cup included for the rubber coated flexible wire antenna (as the Sony has), but the Sangean is more forgiving about antenna positioning, so not a huge deal. I can just let it hang and still pick up the weakest Christian radio stations in my mountainous area. Pretty impressive.
The perceived build quality is way better than the Sony, so I feel like the higher price was justified. It just seems like it was built to last.
> the momentary backlighting
> the large numerals on the display
> the mounting plate that allows easy removal
> has enough volume and high frequency detail
to be heard over my blow dryer (barely)
Bottom line: If there's a better shower radio out there, I'd sure like to know about it. Until then, I'll be quite happy with the Sangean.
