Sony Classic!

For years Sony has helped pioneer the road in the consumer electronics market. From the early days where "Listening on the go" was just wishful thinking, to modern times when just about every phone is a music player, Sony has always had their sights set on what was next. In 1979 Sony shocked the world with the very first portable music player, the Walkman. For the first time in history, people were able to enjoy their favorite tunes on the go. And since the Walkman was introduced in 1979, we have never looked back. We have been spoiled over time with the increasingly fast evolution of electronics, and the constant demand for the next big thing. Sony has managed to stay right on pace with this ever changing industry, without losing their grasp on what won our hearts in the first place. The joy, and convenience of portable music and radio is now a standard in most of the world today.

The Sony ICF-38 is a classic reproduction of what has brought us here, and what we have used all along. Its small, convenient size makes it the perfect addition to any trip in your car, outdoors, and camping. Unfold the built in carrying handle and take it with you on your walk. The IFC-38 has a built in speaker so you can get weather updates and conditions, even in a power outage. Overall, Sony's portable radios reliability make it a must have and is designed for daily usage, or to store in case of emergencies.

I purchased this item and 2 extra batteries as the charging port on my phone no longer worked. I now always have a couple of batteries charged in my bag and ready to go. Very happy with the purchase.

Good Product

I have been using Sony ICF-38 for about one month. It is a good radio with clear sound. If I am using battery I can wrap the electric wire inside the radio. It is easy to operate.

EXCELLENT RADIO

August 14, 2013

I highly recommend this radio. I especially like the red light that gets brighter as you get the best signal. No need to keep moving the dial until the sound you think is best. The red light is a great feature. Also, a place for ear plugs. Watch TV and listen to the ball game with the ear buds. Lightweight, easy to carry outside or wherever you go. Nice looking too.

This is a great radio! AM and FM, works on batteries or electricity. The sound is much better than I hoped for and it performs up to the high standards of Sony. I would recommend this to anyone. The price also makes it a great bargain.
