I figured I would not get much in a radio for $15, but I was mistaken! I just needed a radio to take to the park and outside with me while I did some reading, and this radio more than fills the bill. It is a good compact size and very lightweight so it is easy for me to carry. I love that the handle...  see moreof Janice's review

Picked up this radio on a whim for listening at the drive in movies. Watched a double feature and this little radio got great reception and is loud for the size. Takes 4 C batteries. Best part is it also has a plug in as well so you can use at home as well as on the go. Also had a plug for headphone...  see moreof Debbi's review

Great Little Radio

Perfect for what I needed. I wanted a small radio to use in the bathroom. I wanted it to be small enough that I could put it in a cupboard when finished. It also can run on batteries so I do not need to have a plug in available. It is not high quality sound, but it's adequate to listen to news. ...  see moreof Mary's review

Perfect radio to take along to beach or any activities. Compact and convenient. Great reception. This radio is a true bargain. Highly recommend this Jensen radio. Able to listen to am/fm and keep up on the sports action while staying active or listen to tunes while relaxing after playing sports.  see moreof Lynne's review

Cute little radio and reception not bad, but the volume is so low , I can only listen to FM stations. I do not have a hearing problem. Tried both the cord and batteries, as I thought there might be something wrong with the cord. Still volume is horrible. I don't live close to a store , so I will jus...  see moreof BULLYLOVER's review

No headphone jack!

Not a bad little stereo, but I bought it for my cubicle at work hoping I could plug a headphone into as to not bother my coworkers...not possible. Despite the description saying it had both an aux in and an aux out, that ended up being not true. There is a aux in for hooking up your phone, ipod, etc...  see moreof Riley's review

Based on other reviews, maybe I got a bad one. When I turned it on for the first time, it had a loud buzzing noise, not static, and after two minutes of turning the dial to try and find an AM and FM station, it went silent and stopped making any noise. Never worked again. Very disappointed.  see moreof LilBlueRadio's review
