    This is a great AM radio. I think people forget how AM radios work. The antenna is internal, and requires constant positioning, to achieve optimal reception. Unless you live in a large city with multiple, high-strength AM stations nearby, you won't be able to strap this to your arm and always have adequate reception. What I do on my walks/jogs is simply hold it in my hand, and by turning the radio in one of three planes, am able to gain optimal reception. Also, there is a local/DX switch, which can affect your reception, either positively, or negatively. Overall, this is a very good, high quality radio. It is not an MP3 player, so don't expect that kind of audio quality. It works very well on FM. No reception problems with that.

    I like listening to radio when I exercize. So, I was really happy to see this product come on the market. However, it has not lived up at all the high quality I have experienced in Sony products owned previously. THe design is poor. It is a bulky devise - sticking out a good 1.5 inches from your arm. With no protective case available, one has to be careful to keep it from hitting equipment or other objects as one works out. All the controls are on the outward or front facing surfaces, so these are also susceptible to getting hit as well. But the worst part came this week when the device started turning itself off for no reason at increasingly shorter intervals. When that interval got down to a few seconds I just gave up.

    terrible control layout

          Comments about Sony S2 Sports Walkman Digital Armband Radio:

          Sound for this unit is adequate for this type of radio. Control button layout just stinks. Analog volume control is on an outside corner unprotected - constantly changing. Lockout feature does not work on volume. Power button is on top-always turning off.(should be 3 sec. holddown). Headphone plug-in on top of unit-easy to tangle with hand. I would think SONY could do better.

              I used this two to three times the most during my evening walks and finally gave up. The reception is horrible. I was able to receive 3 channels at most and none of them were what I wanted to listen to. The channels either echoed or I would get two channels on one setting. This one goes into the donation pile. Don't waste your money.

                Comments about Sony S2 Sports Walkman Digital Armband Radio:

                Clearly my own fault for buying sight unseen, but for some reason I thought this would be smaller and lighter than it is. Still, in the three weeks I've used it, it has performed quite well, gives excellent reception for NPR (about all I listen to when cycling), and fits my arm securely. Minor concern: Earpieces will not fit inside a cycling helmet, but then most of us have other options.

                  Comments about Sony S2 Sports Walkman Digital Armband Radio:

                  This radio is a refurbish and it looks brand new. It came very quickly from SONY direct online and I am very satisfied. The AM reception is excellent and outperforms my older SONY CD/AM/FM/TV/Weather Walkman. The volume on the CD player was toggle and would lock but this radio has a nob which I have accidentally moved when handling the radio. I listen to AM most of the time. The FM reception is also excellent and of course is determined by the length of the headphone wire which is the FM antenna. The weather bands don't do well on any radio or CB around where I live but it is still audible. I recommend this radio.

                  Brought this a couple of years ago for my husband. He hadn't used a Walkman before, but since he started jogging, I thought it was a great idea. HE LOVES IT. He jigs almost every day and loves it. Great simple design. Easy to use.
