Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Remarkably clear and interference-free Like so many others who've posted reviews on this radio, I love its sound quality and overall feature set. But what no one else seems to have mentioned yet is that this radio is unusually well shielded against electrical interference -- both ways. You can use the radio in proximity to "noisy" electrical devices and circuits yet the radio reception remains clear and static-free. By the same token, you can place it next to your laptop computer or other sensitive electronics without causing any disruption to those other devices. I have yet to come across another radio like this. As for clarity and power, well, during the Calgary Stampede last summer, I took this out on my highrise apartment balcony during one evening's fireworks. I cranked it up and was able to blast out the synhronized music soundtrack (from a local FM station) for my entire block -- without distortion! The only downside to this product overall is that the dustproof MP3 player compartment in the front is not large enough for the most popular current-model smart phones. It may be time for Milwaukee to come out with a second generation with a larger compartment. January 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for work! We don't have very good reception in the middle of downtown, so I bought 4 after discovering they work well! December 23, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Work tunes Not a charger, won't fit large smartphone like galaxy s5, but sounds good . Durable and battery life is good. The handles work great for mounting anywhere .Small size keeping it out of the way. Aux cable is removable and using it with a good fm transmitter from your work truck is the best way we use it. A USB port or 12v charger would be nice. November 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Raido This radio is much smaller than I would have guessed. I was using an old clock radio before, but was given this as a gift. The sound is great, the digital tuner is way better than my old radio. I usually use it plugged in when I use it. It has taken a couple falls, but came out unscathed. My iphone 3g fits in the compartment, but only barely. If you have anything larger it may not fit. $100 is a bit much, but it is durable and compared to the price of a regular radio with aux inputs it isn't crazy. Regarding the negative reviews: This doesn't come with a battery, but it doesn't claim to. It doesn't charge the battery, but it doesn't claim to. December 23, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice little radio Radio is nice and compact compared to other jobsite radios I've owned. Gets fairly good reception, for my rural location. Loud enough if it's in the room with you, which is all I really expected, given it's price and size. I plan on adding a battery-powered bluetooth adapter, so I can stream from my phone. June 4, 2014
