The DT-120 is a small AM/FM stereo radio that's small enough to fit in a shirt or jacket pocket, and powerful enough to pull in those distant AM/FM stations. It measures a mere 2 by 3.7 by 0.7 inches, and weighs only 2 ounces, making it portable enough to take anywhere.

Big Features

You get 15 memory presets (and auto scan) to help you zip right to preferred stations. The radio comes with stereo earbuds. DBB (Deep Bass Boost) enhances the sonic low end, while a stereo-mono switch improves reception when needed.

With Digital Tuning and Sangean's traditional radio sensitivity, plus included earbuds, you will be able to enjoy your morning jog, your short trip to the beach, or other outing without missing your favorite AM/FM station if you have the DT-120 pocket radio.

Not quite as described.

August 5, 2013

It is a great little pocket radio which I bought for my partner because I had one already and love it. Mine has an automatic switch-off after an hour and a half which is ideal when listening to it in bed. However the second one I bought does not have this facility, despite the description clearly saying that it does. It rather defeats the reason I bought it.

Sangean DT-120 CL review

October 7, 2013

Excellent unit, my favorite. It's light and compact, only requires one AAA battery and is not as power hungry as other portable radios I own. Controls are user friendly and sensible, memory doesn't get wiped out by battery changes and the sound is excellent. The lock switch is a bit awkward (slide switch requires use of fingernail) and the power cut off after some 90 minutes can be a distraction although it prevents battery drain in case power is left on. And I love the look. Highly recommended.
