Coby IR850 Internet Radio

 

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Coby products - check the packing

 

It\'s a great way to listen to internet radio without the hassle of booting up your computer. The affiliated website allows you to add or subtract stations at will. I purchased three of these from J&R, one for a gift. One arrived with the wrong power...

DOA out of the box. i had high hopes for this unit. The screen froze upon programming and would not reset. Called COBY and they said there was nothing they could do, so I am returning it.

Complicated Controls

easy as pie

 

A really nice thing for my Swedish husband to use to listen to Swedish radio! It was very easy to set up, intuitive and direct, and it\'s just as easy to use.

I like it!

 

This radio took the place of 3 items next to my bed: an AM\/FM radio {AM reception was poor], a CC WiFi Radio, and a alarm clock. This unit works faster then the CC WiFi Radio.

Really good value

 

Bought 1 - it was easy to set up. Bought 3 more including 1 for a friend. Put the next 2 in my garage - 50 feet from my WIFI. They could not connect. Needed to move my 2 Logitech Squeezeboxes to garage where they connected easily. None of the remotes...

A Radio for Classical Music Fans

 

Pop music stations are common but classical ones are rare. This radio can supply over 300 classical music stations! Setup is a bit complex since a security key and a MAC address are required. Sound is decent at low volumes but deteriorates when playing...
