What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sangean SR-35 AM/FM Analog Pocket Radio with Built-in Speaker
  • Large factor of signal amplification coupled with extremely low internal electronic noise.
  • It can compete with digital radios 5-6 times more expensive, even if it is just a pocket radio.
  • This Sangean has the most intelligent and sturdy antenna attachment system of this group of radios, allowing it to be used as a support when the radio is set on a counter.
  • The Sangean was easily the overall winner -- best audio, best overall reception (AM + FM), and best station locking onto the signal without drift or background noise.
  • Very good sound from the speaker, doesn't eat batteries too fast, and the tuning LED is a reliable indicator of having dialed the best signal.
Sony ICF-S10MK2 Pocket AM/FM Radio, Silver
  • The antenna is collapsable and folds behind the unit for storage.
  • It has a volume dial that acts as the on/off switch, an FM/AM switch, and a tuning dial. It is battery operated only. It has been a great little radio for my needs and I highly recommend!
  • The antenna is secured to the radio with a small screw attached to a metal piece that sticks out on the back of the radio.
  • Tuning is strong on the FM band. I don't really listen to AM band, but I'm sure at night with clear skies this little baby would probably pick up AM band just fine.
  • The antenna works well. Also, I was impressed with the volume. For a small, lightweight, pocket radio, it can put out some volume.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sangean SR-35 AM/FM Analog Pocket Radio with Built-in Speaker
  • I am surprised at the quality of sound that comes from this little radio!
  • Wow. It's very lightweight and small enough to fit almost anywhere, so that it delivers so well with rich sound is pretty amazing.
  • For the money, this is a really great little radio!
  • It's average size for a pocket radio and does have a little weight to it.
  • I would never have guessed that such good sound could come out of such a small plastic box.
Sony ICF-S10MK2 Pocket AM/FM Radio, Silver
  • It's small, portable, well built, and I am confident that they will work for quite some time.
  • This is my second one just like it. It amazes me how a radio so, small can sound so, clear and work so, well if all you want to do it to listen to the radio.
  • With a radio this small you really don't need a rotating antenna as it's just as easy to rotate the radio.
  • The speaker on this little gem is also a big plus. It puts out decent sound for its small size.
  • 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.
