    The Sony ICF-S10MK2 Pocket AM/FM Radio is the consumer electronics industry's best performing pocket radio. It has a flawless design, implementation, and reception of analog radio broadcasts. I enjoy listening to this pocket radio just as much as any larger portable item in my personal radio assortment. The Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers two distinct listening options. A formidable built-in 2 ¼ inch monaural speaker provides big booming sound on FM stations. The Sony radio provides clear, well defined, and distinct voice quality for my favorite talk radio programs on the AM band. The audio quality emitted from the built-in speaker is on par or of better quality than many larger portable radios that I have heard in my experience. The built-in speaker provides depth and clarity of sound without distortion. A convenient earphone jack is provided on the left side of the radio for any occasion when a private listening session is desired or needed. FM and AM tuning quality is a breeze with the unit's thumbwheel style tuning control. The LED tuning indicator lights up in bright red when a station in tuned in accurately or locked in. Station drift is not an issue with this Sony pocket radio as I never feel the need to retune the dial once the LED indicator is lit. This Sony pocket radio is always there for me when I want to listen to the ballgame or a newscast when I can't be near a TV. The telescopic FM whip antenna and built-in AM ferrite bar antenna enable this portable radio to offer exceptional sensitivity and selectivity in station reception across the FM/AM radio bands. I am also able to receive out-of-market AM stations on most nights when clear atmospheric conditions are present. The Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers high performance battery life. The Sony pocket radio is powered by 2 AA batteries that are difficult to deplete. It is a rare event when the Sony pocket radio's batteries need to be replaced. The super high performance features offered by this Sony pocket radio are as follows: analog tuning dial, FM/AM dial scale, LED station lock indicator, FM/AM band reception, FM/AM band selector switch, dual function volume control/power switch, built-in speaker, earphone jack, FM telescopic whip antenna, built-in AM antenna, carry strap, and battery compartment. Lastly, the Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers great build quality, compact size, and it performs admirably. Good Luck. Enjoy.

    Perfectly Adequate Radio

    Well packaged. A very basic radio, with a rotating tuning knob. If you don't change stations much, this is very servicable.

      Comments about Sony ICF-S10MK2 Pocket AM/FM Radio:

      This radio is better than the average pocket sized radio you pick up at a big box store. Although it's size is pushing pocket sized. I would prefer a digital tuner with a handful of presets, but small radios with those features just didn't have good reception. I haven't had it long enough to have input on battery life just yet.

This radio it´s so cheap you´ll enjoy it while shaving, cooking or any other daily activities. and because of its low price you won´t get angry if it gets broken. Just compare what would it like if your PC was broken.

              Thanks to my pocket radio that I bought at BH, I survived the storm Sandy. I like radio that is an old fashioned device because it is easy to carry and listen when I am cleaning the house. By chance, I bought it just before Frankenstorm where we lost power, no more power, no more internet during a whole week ; I could listen to the news thanks to my radio that works with batteries.

                  This is an excellent and inexpensive pocket radio. I actually bought it as a present for my brother who lives in the Caribbean, but I ended up using it mysef when the power went off in New York after hurricane Sandy. The reception was clear even in the basement of the building, and the sound great. I will keep it and will buy another one for my brother.

                  I bought this radio as the reviews were generally good. I found that the radio had a tinny sound and was 'over-sensitive' with several stations coming in at the same time in the evening and at night. If you want to listen with headphones you have to be aware of the fact that this is a monaural radio and that, without a special adapter, the sound comes out only on one side of the headphones.

                    I bought this to replace my old Grundig shortwave as an emergency radio (in case of power failure) or - more portable than the shortwave - something that can travel easily. Works fine. Sound is not great - reminds me of old-time transistor radios - but clear enough, does what it needs to do. I bought the recommended earbuds, but, as another reviewer wrote, this radio will only deliver sound to one earbud. It's a little weird - either the other earbud just dangles down your shirt front, or sits in your ear doing nothing. Monaural sound is one thing...one-ear sound is something else. I haven't used it enough to gauge the battery life.

                              Wanted an inexpensive radio to replace the pocket radio I lost. The radio seems to be the same design dating back to the 60's when the 6 transistor radio was first introduced.

                              The only con is the radio jack that is accessed from the side which prevents me from carrying the radio in a pouch when running or walking. Most pocket radios have earphone jacks on top so that the wires can come out of a shirt pocket, belt & pouch etc. Also the earphone jack in mono only--not good for earphones, ear buds and the like.

                                        Comments about Sony ICF-S10MK2 Pocket AM/FM Radio:

                                        The Sony ICF-S10MK2 Pocket AM/FM Radio is the consumer electronics industry's best performing pocket radio. It has a flawless design, implementation, and reception of analog radio broadcasts. I enjoy listening to this pocket radio just as much as any larger portable item in my personal radio assortment. The Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers two distinct listening options. A formidable built-in 2 ¼ inch monaural speaker provides big booming sound on FM stations. The Sony radio provides clear, well defined, and distinct voice quality for my favorite talk radio programs on the AM band. The audio quality emitted from the built-in speaker is on par or of better quality than many larger portable radios that I have heard in my experience. The built-in speaker provides depth and clarity of sound without distortion. A convenient earphone jack is provided on the left side of the radio for any occasion when a private listening session is desired or needed. FM and AM tuning quality is a breeze with the unit's thumbwheel style tuning control. The LED tuning indicator lights up in bright red when a station in tuned in accurately or locked in. Station drift is not an issue with this Sony pocket radio as I never feel the need to retune the dial once the LED indicator is lit. This Sony pocket radio is always there for me when I want to listen to the ballgame or a newscast when I can't be near a TV. The telescopic FM whip antenna and built-in AM ferrite bar antenna enable this portable radio to offer exceptional sensitivity and selectivity in station reception across the FM/AM radio bands. I am also able to receive out-of-market AM stations on most nights when clear atmospheric conditions are present. The Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers high performance battery life. The Sony pocket radio is powered by 2 AA batteries that are difficult to deplete. It is a rare event when the Sony pocket radio's batteries need to be replaced. The super high performance features offered by this Sony pocket radio are as follows: analog tuning dial, FM/AM dial scale, LED station lock indicator, FM/AM band reception, FM/AM band selector switch, dual function volume control/power switch, built-in speaker, earphone jack, FM telescopic whip antenna, built-in AM antenna, carry strap, and battery compartment. Lastly, the Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers great build quality, compact size, and it performs admirably. Good Luck. Enjoy.
