Very powerful amplifier. I'm using good Sony headphones,the ear buds sound thin.Pretty easy to learn to program.I love it.

Don't buy it

This product was a piece of junk. First problem was the reason I bought this radio, its digital tuner. For example our local country station is 100.7, when I tuned to it, it would bounce up and down. I would finally get good reception then while walking the radio would come in an out. I would check and the tuner would show something like 101.0. Next problem after only two weeks the battery needed changing. The straw that broke the back is after about a month of ownership it developed a short causing it to turn on and off. It hit the garbage can a couple of days ago. I bought a memorex pocket radio for the same price that serves it purpose perfectally.

Great radio for the price!

This armband radio has great reception and selectivity. The audio is from many of the FM and AM stations come in great. I use this radio when I'm out cycling. It doesn't matter whether I'm going North or South, East or West I still can hear FM stations from 50 miles away and AM stations 1500 miles away if the conditions are right. I would recommend this radio for anyone that uses it for running, jogging, cycling and walking. I hope that this review helps everyone.

Great Radio For Walking

For use when walking this little radio works great; it's light and is easy to use. Finds stations well.

was hoping for better AM

On the plus side, it's a cheap radio. On the minus side, it's a cheap radio. It has a clock with an alarm, but there's nothing to hold the time and alarm through battery changes (such as a capacitor), necessitating resetting both every time one changes them. The tuning dial is merely a wheel with a digital frequency readout; no memories or anything. It's functional, but not like I'd expect with an LCD, and it's very touchy (bump anywhere near the wheel, and the tuning changes). It's not particularly selective tuning either; with two stations in my city, one at 930 (WBEN-AM) and another at 970, it more-or-less cross-fades between them while tuning. The digital section causes noise (at about -12 dB) on AM, even when tuned to a local 50kW station. Pressing the "BBS" button brings the audio back to "normal" sounding, so it's not truly bass boost. The included earbuds are not comfortable; I'd recommend using any phones with a 3.5 mm plug--if you want buds, be sure to get ones with flexible "boots." The band is quite good with elastic and hook-n-loop ("Velcro(R)") adjustment. The FM isn't even stereo, although the output jack is stereo. The displayed frequency doesn't seem to be accurate either; for example WEDG-FM is 103.3, but sounds tuned at 103.5 I wouldn't recommend any use case other than talk radio.
