compact AM/FM radio, easy to tune, good range of reception on both AM and FM bands. I like to listen to a ballgame or music with it. Sony is a good brand, works well...

I bought this radio to use in the event of an emergency when the power is out. It is small and fits almost anywhere. Sound is clear and crisp.

Ear phone jack is mono. I hate that. Sound will only come through one side of ear plugs. Volume control is way too sensitive. Volume sound could be a little more mellow. Reception is about what you would expect. Radio enclosure is fine. The mono ear phone jack is my biggest peve.
There is an obvious manufacter defect of the earphone jack on this product. Overstock was good when I returned the item, but the replacement had the same defect as the first. I went through a lot when I first noticed the problem that the earphones that I had just bought were only working in one ear. I assumed that it was the earphones so I went back to purchase another headset of a different brand. Same problem, so I went back again to find the same problem with another. Now I knew that it was the radio. When overstock sent me the new set, again, same problem. I am writing this review so that all will understand that the earphone jack will not split the sound and that only 1 speaker on the headset will work. I even tried earbuds, same problem.
