The ICF-S10MK2 is named a "pocket" radio but I don't like bulky things in my pants or shirt pockets so I would consider it a pocket radio only for a jacket or outdoors vest. It is a good size for backpacking.
I have experience with it only in a large metro area and it tunes in all my stations but sometimes I have to finesse the manual tuning dial for a couple seconds. I prefer it's sound more for AM listening than for FM music. Surprisingly I have found myself carrying it from room to room now instead of the superior Sony ICF-38 which is my favorite portable radio and a steal at $30.
Like the ICF-38, the ICF-S10MK2 sound emanates from the rear of the radio also and if the radio is placed in a corner or near a wall the sound is to me somewhat enhanced.
The big negative for some will be the mono (left ear only) headphone jack. I only use the headphone jack on this radio if I want to be aware of sounds around me such as if the wife is calling me I will hopefully hear her in the right ear :-).
If you are an AM radio nut like me you will most likely agree that this is a good small radio that is a good deal at $13.00.
After that, I suddenly was unable to get the signal to both ears. After doing some research, I discovered that this radio isn't actually designed for stereo headphones! If you try to use stereo headphones (aka the normal ones that everybody has), you will only hear out of one ear.
If you are 60+ years old, and feel some sort of nostalgia for "one ear" earphones, then you will probably laugh at me for being so naive. For the rest of us, you have been warned.
I have since switched to an Eton Mini Compact, and haven't looked back.
[Used to use] this as part of a "ghetto" in-ear monitor system (look for it on Instructables).
So far, it's doing its job just fine. It actually picks up lower frequencies than claimed in the product specs; I turned the dial all the way to the left, and this radio picked up my FM transmitter broadcasting at 87.1 MHz.
I haven't had any need to move the antenna upright or extend it. It picks up my transmitter just fine without doing anything extra to the antenna.
So far, I'm happy with the purchase.
For the price, you cannot beat this little radio. It picks up stations that some more expensive radios miss, does not drift and has fairly clear sound for its price. The sound is somewhat tinny (don't expect Bose or other high end sound). However, for its price, you cannot find a better radio anywhere. I highly recommend this radio. For this price, you might consider purchasing more than one to keep at multiple locations.
The radio came faster than expected, which is always a nice surprise. It came in appropriate packaging. My radio worked without a hitch.
This radio is light and small. So, for those of you who long for the 70s and 80s and want to lug a 75 pound, full size stereo around on your shoulder, this isn't for you. But, if you want a compact, light, AM/FM radio to stick in your pocket... Yeah baby!!! (white buck teeth glistening in the light) Yeah!!!!
The antenna is attached via a flimsy metal tab, which will bend easily if you are not careful. But, if you do bend it, the flimsy metal tab it is attached to will bend easily back into place. Ah, hah, hah, hah, hah, ha!! Well, what did you expect from cheap Japanese steel?? Try this! Go out in your drive way where your Nissan, Toyota, Honda... is parked. Place your thumb in the center of one of the doors. Now press. Boing, boing, boing!!! Hah, hah, hah, hah!! Cheap Japanese steel!!! Moving on...
The antenna works well. Also, I was impressed with the volume. For a small, lightweight, pocket radio, it can put out some volume.
Last but not least, the tuning is ANALOG!!! But that is great!!! For all of you Digital freaks out there, I'll tell you why. FM stations drift. An analog tuner can compensate. Most digital tuners can't. Ever have your FM tuned to, say, 104.7, but the channel sounds like it isn't quite on the Freq.? You try to compensate by going to 104.6 and 104.8, but guess what? If you are lucky, you get something that sounds like Charlie Brown's teacher!!! Whamp, a wah, wah, wah, wah, wamp, wah. If you have an analog tuner, you just nudge the tuning dial a bit and, bam!, crystal clear sound. And to help you do that, there is a little, red, tuner LED!! When you have dialed in the strongest signal, it lights up bright red and says, "STOP!!! You are on the channel!!"
'Nuff said. Play, out!
