      An extraordinary musical atmosphere, the effortless and detailed reproduction of a classical string quartet, and the latest news broadcast in one compact unit. The Sony SRF-59SILVER Walkman is just a fantastic radio that offers reception of all types of music and news information from the FM/AM bands. The Sony Walkman is also an ideal personal radio to take on the bus or train when travelling to or from work or for any other portable audio task. This Sony portable radio features excellent sensitivity and selectivity with respect to its broadcast FM/AM reception capabilities. The Sony SRF-59 Walkman is well suited for my diverse musical and talk radio interests. I admire the quality and inherent value that this Sony Walkman represents in the portable audio product category. The Sony SRF-59 Walkman radio is a small and lightweight unit that fits easily in your hand or on your belt with supplied clip. The Sony SRF-59 Walkman is a take anyplace radio that performs well under difficult seasonal conditions such as a very hot summer day. I use the Sony SRF-59 Walkman frequently when sitting poolside, at home for private listening sessions, or when I walk in my neighborhood. The supplied headphones fit comfortably over my ears for a stress-free listening experience for an extended period of time. The FM stereo reception of my favorite rock music stations sound magnificent. The Sony Walkman's broadcast reception is free of static and other distracting noise anomalies that often plague lesser performing portables. It is without doubt, that this Sony Walkman offers drift-free classic analog tuning performance. Listening to AM broadcasts is a joy on this portable. My listening preference is for sports talk radio. Whether it's today's game broadcast or analysis of yesterday's game, this Sony SRF-59 Walkman portable radio is always there to satisfy my sports talk needs perfectly. Talk radio programs and news broadcasts come in accurately and with great clarity as well. The Sony SRF-59 Walkman requires only one AA battery to operate and it never seems to run out. The Sony SRF-59 Walkman has the essential features that a traditional radio or outdoor aficionado would appreciate. Those high performance features include: FM/AM reception, headphone cord FM antenna, built-in AM antenna, analog tuner, thumbwheel style tuning dial, FM local/distance sensitivity switch, FM/AM band slide switch, power on/off switch, 3.5 mm headphone output jack, volume control, and belt clip. With its trouble-free AM reception and precise FM stereo reproduction, this Sony SRF-59 Walkman is an outstanding performer. Good Luck. Enjoy.

      I should have known better than expect the highest quality from a little box. This Walkman doesn't have the clarity that I was looking for in a product, thus it has a lot of static on the stations that I seek out, and it doesn't seem to matter all the time where I am located.

      I purchased this now, but I wish I had opted for something better.

        Comments about Sony SRF-59 Walkman AM/FM Stereo Radio:

        I use this AM/FM Walkman to pick up college ball games when possible. I use it at home or on the go. The sound and reception are both actually quite good. It's all plastic but light. The only reason I didn't give it 5 Stars is because it's cheap plastic but for $ plus shipping, I consider it a nice purchase. As usual, B&H Photo shipping service was extremely fast. B&H isn't highly rated by Consumer Reports for nothing. They are fast and accurate every time I buy from them.

              Well i try to walk each day after being diagnosed with blocked arteries last summer. And it is so much easier to walk when you can listen to music or talk shows..I didn't have the money to put alot into a walkman ;but I took a chance and went online to see if there were any bargains floating around. Sure enough....I was amazed to see this at this price. It is a terrific item. it is lightweight, can snap it onto your slacks or belt, and has great tone . Each station comes in clearly. It arrived a few days after I ordered it........Can't remember when I got a bargain like this........

                Comments about Sony SRF-59 Walkman AM/FM Stereo Radio:

                After going through two ipods, which I ruined with sweat from running, I decided to go back to my old Sony Walkman. I assumed they were out of production but was delighted to find a newer, lighter version at B&H, very reasonably priced. Now that's my go-to for running music, and I plan to order another for back up. Thanks for not replacing the tried and true with the new. Spoiler: I'm 76 years old but do 7.25 miles a day.

                                I run listening to fm radios and this is a pretty good one. Pros: it gets good reception in an area that doesnt get good reception; it stays on channel pretty well; it is light for its size. Cons: it is VERY large. The large size has not been a problem, however, as the clip works well on my running shorts. Last year I went through three of the Sony MP3/FM player and they kept dying. I am hopeful this one will last better, but I bought the B&H replacement plan just in case.

                                  This is a simple, easy-to use, inexpensive radio that performs well. Good sound quality given the low price, and intuitive to use. There are no bells and whistles on this product - if you've ever used a radio before, you already know how to use this one!

                                    Bought this for my father in law. He loves it! Picks up his favorite stations and it is working very well for it's intended purpose: for him to wear it while puttering in his yard as well as my brother in law's! Sony makes good stuff. It sounds even better with my Bose headphones.

                                            I had had one of these Walkmans for years...someone snatched it up. I was happy to find this at B&H at a great price. Headphones sound great. Great reception and very simple to use. If you have never traded with B&H, you should. These guys are pros!
