Answer:
Yes! FM comes in terrific and the extendible antenna gives added clarity/reception quality...you do not need headphones/earbuds to listen to AM or FM on this radio; the sound output for both bands is very clear and signal pick-up strength great.

It does upper mid range to treble well and has lower distortion when cranked up than other pocket AM/FM's. There are no lower mids and no bass. It offers great reception on both AM and FM but isn't the best choice for music.

I believe the radio's antennae design is not optimized for longer distance or weak power signals.

Question:
Answer:
There is a built-in ferrite rod antenna inside the radio for AM. The external telescoping antenna is for FM use. The FM antenna moves in a straight line only from left to right. Move it any other way it breaks off and you then have an AM only radio.
