Sangean DT-400W

The Sangean Model DT-400W is the last pocket radio you will ever need to buy. It has about everything you could want, and then some, in a small, pocket sized portable radio. As an example the new NOAA Weather Alert Emergency Channel sounds a very loud audible tone when an extreme weather condition is imminent and/or a police emergency or a child abduction has occurred or any type of public awareness becomes critical. Even with your radio off or you are listening to another station the weather alert monitor continues to monitor the NOAA channels should an emergency arise. To conserve battery life the DT-400W provides an option to select the time you would like the NOAA alert to be active and a small LED alert flashes to remind you that the alert is on. In addition to emergencies the 7 NOAA channels provide up to date general weather information useful if you're planning a trip or just a picnic for the weekend. The large backlit LCD display clearly displays the time, station, battery life indication, alert indication and all other pertinent information. Advanced PLL Synthesized Digital Receiver provides drift free AM/FM reception. Deep Bass Boost adds to your stereo musical listening pleasure and 19 random preset selections lets you mix AM/FM stations with immediate access through the "My Favorites" button. Other features include Lock Switch to prevent accidental set-up changes, optional 90 minute auto shutoff, built-in speaker, auto station seek and a removable belt clip.

Excellent Product

May 9, 2014

I purchased this to use while walking my dog, camping, hiking, and hunting. It is a tough, easy to use radio with strong reception. Uses cheap AA batteries and has a long battery life. A great value. I would recommend for anyone wanting a handy radio. .

DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT

March 10, 2014

I was very reluctant to purchase this fine unit at first, only because there are so many out there to purchase at lower prices. But I am so very please with this little unit that there's not a day goes by that I don't listen to it. You really do get what you pay for in this case. This is not my first pocket radio and the sound quality that comes out of this little unit is just awesome. I can pick up stations that I never could before during day light hours and they come in crystal clear. I can't believe the sound that comes through the standard earphones that came with the unit! If my unit broke tomorrow, I'd feel that it was worth the money paid. I have never taken the time to write about any product that I have purchased but when I saw your e-mail, well, I just had to take a few minutes to let you know what a great product you make and that you have a very happy consumer.

Nice, sensitive little radio.

March 10, 2014

I like everything about this radio (I use it for picking up seater forecasts while on canoe trips, and other backcountry trips). The only thing I don't like is the poor fit of the earbuds.

My second little yellow radio

January 14, 2014

This is my second Sangean DT-400W radio...only because I left my first one in a hotel room. I use my radio nightly. It fits under my pillow so I don't disturb my husband who falls asleep directly. It is easy to use, gets excellent reception and has a lock switch to keep it on station. It also turns itself off after 90 minutes. Perfect for my purpose. I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a small radio.

I like the product. Works well. The only thing that would make it better is a fixed or screw in the antenna. Not a big fan of loose wire and I do not wear ear buds. Other than that it is great. Works great.

Nice Radio

Picks up radio stations that I can not get from greater distances. I really like the feature that shuts it off after a while so I can listen to it with the earphones in bed and then fall asleep. That feature saves the batteries.

High quality pocket radio.

December 2, 2012

I'm very pleased with this high quality pocket radio, one that appears to do all things well. It performs well within it's technical specifications. Price was a major concern; but as with everything else, once the shock of the initial purchase price is long forgotten I do expect the quality to remain. I'm happy I bought this slick little radio.
