This radio has actually exceeded my expectations. Easily the best pocket radio that I've owned in a good ten years.
As noted by others, this radio has great AM reception. No, the included headphones are not good. But when used with better ones the sound quality is, dare I say, excellent for a radio of this price. A surpisingly warm, rich sound - not the harsh/brittle/thin sound of other radios that I was afraid of. Compare it to a radio like the god-awful RCA RP1667 in order to truly appreciate how great this little radio is. And for the price you can't beat it. I even like the analog tuning and volume controls.
Just to correct a previous reviewer, this radio does indeed receive FM in stereo.
