Just what you\'d expect


Very compact and surprisingly appealing design for the price. Dial-tuning with a digital display is very cool, but it doesn\'t have preset buttons. The sound quality is actually pretty good, albeit a little tinny and you can hear a slight hum at low...

COBY CX-50 Compact AM/FM Radio with Digital Display


I bought this for listening to the radio in the office. It is exactly what I was looking for.

This was a surpisingly good radio for the size and price. The sound quality is great, and it has enough volume to be heard in a small room over backround noise. The antenna had no problem picking up signal from indoors

Sometimes there is a bit of static, but it doesnt take away from the audio quality much

picture doesn\'t convey the cool looking radio it really shows out of the package. it like radios from the 50\'s & 60\'s but with a modern touch. seems COBY has a unique flair for cool little radios. and affordable to boot. oh yea a clock as well. enjoy!
