As a lifelong radio fan I feel compelled to share with you how happy I am with the Sony ICF-S10MK2, just the best pocket-sized radio I’ve ever encountered.
I found it for sale in a Sears store on Maui a couple of years ago, and felt the $12.99 price to be irresistable. Needless to say I was delighted post-purchase when I had the chance to try it out, and found its performance superior to anything of that size that I had encountered before.
Being a senior citizen my favorite radio is still to be found on the AM band, and here in Victoria my Sony will cleanly separate the signals of CBC 690, Seattle’s ESPN 710, and Vancouver’s All-Traffic 730. Even some other larger Sony radios can’t do that!
The FM band picks up 95% of the over-the-air signals on offer from both sides of the border.
And the two AA batteries last approximately forever. As well, the sound quality on the $1.25 ear buds I’m currently using from the local Dollar store produce excellent full-spectrum sound. You can’t go wrong with this excellent tiny powerhouse, which is pictured in approximate true life size.
The radio has unfortunately been dropped half-a-dozen times, and despite my trepidation on each occasion, it continues to serve me well, having suffered no apparent harm.
