This radio has so much potential but really needs to improve on some key features. I suspect my radio has a defect with the MP3 playback (as described below) so it’s going back. I would like to replace it with another of the same model but I think I will wait to see if they can improve some of the AM audio quality problems first.
The pros: -- Nice size, a pocket radio. When placed on a flat surface it stands up on its own. -- Literally hundreds of presets. -- Great reception on FM. This radio has the ability to bring in and keep separation of many weak FM stations. -- Impressive audio output with its small speaker. Also sounds good through headphones, including stereo from FM & MP3 files. -- Provides for MP3/WAV input from micro SD and/or thumb drive. -- It uses a replaceable phone-type battery with a 1000 mAh capacity which is enough for hours of playback using headphones. -- Ability to record what is being played through the...
I'm giving this four stars because it works perfectly for my application. My favorite talk radio program comes on an FM station at midnight but I rarely stay up that late. I don't podcast it because i live in the country with 4G internet and have a limited amount of data. So after a quick and easy setup, and slipping in an 8Gig micro sd card, the radio has perfectly recorded the program automatically for the last several nights and it's so nice to fast forward through the commercials!
FM audio quality is great. Close to the Meloson, same kind of high excursion micro-speaker with passive bass radiator.
Now the bad:
AM and short wave audio quality is abysmal. Literally sounds like the radio has been sealed up in a box full of foam rubber. Unusable for that reason alone. I have not tried to record on AM and then pull the sd card to listen on another device to see if the recording sounds as bad.
Mute-with-each-tuning-step which makes tuning...
Simply put, this is a piece of junk, and Kaito should be ashamed of selling it. The radio reception is on a par with a sub $10.00 radio. Add to that the audio quality sounding distant and poor. The mp3 abilities are an atrocity as the buttons don't function properly. No matter what button you press (play, ff, rw) there is a high chance that it will return you to the beginning of the track you are playing. Buy the Kaito KA 29 model, which is superior in every way and cheaper.
