      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.

      Tough choice

      Works and is comfortable to wear. Reception is limited by poor antenna, so stations that I would listen to don't come in.

                  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.

                      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.

                                  This little Sony radio is a gem. It's small and easy to use, and it has great sound, too.

                                      I use it wherever I go to keep up with the news and listening to music. It's a great distraction when I am doing something boring. It has good reception and is really easy on batteries.

                                        I use it at the gym. High quality headphones and a great price.

                                        I had it in a few days and only used the USPS.

                                          Wonderful to use when in public and you don't want to disturbed others around you. The sound is great and it picks so many stations loud and clear. Love my new radio.

                                            Reception excellent.
                                            Battery Level after 7days = 1.4vdc, down from 1.6vdc at outset.
                                            Average use is 7hrs / day, weekdays Only.
                                            Single AA battery appears sufficient.
                                            Losing some reception at 1.39vdc, after 10 days.
                                            Controls are recessed nicely, no snags on adjacent items.
