Our pocket radio is a real blessing when small size is important.

We combined ease of use, very good reception and sharp, well defined audio together in this little jewel of a radio. You can listen on the built-in speaker or the included high quality original CC Buds Earphones tuned for superior voice clarity and music. It has five, one touch memory buttons for each band and stands upright when needed. Rubber coated sides help with grip.

A much appreciated comment from a customer said it better than we could. "I am proud to own it (the CC Pocket Radio) partly because of the pride you must have in designing with such care."
Thank you from the C. Crane crew!

Small size, huge performer
Being able to lock the radio on so that when sleeping you don't accidently change the station or volume is a huge plus. It has way too many built in extras to even start talking about in this post.
Battery life could be better but it does tripple if i remember to use the ear buds............
Best Uses
for going for walks and for bed time listening.
I have 5 AM/FM/Shortwave radios, about the same size but this pocket radio has become my best buddy for listening at night time and for taking a walk.............

Great Little Radio!
Best Uses
I love this radio! As I expected, it has the usual high quality typical of all C. Crane products. I can pull in distant AM stations at night, and the FM is great also. Very little signal drift, it locks on quite well for a radio of this size. All in all, I'm impressed with it.

I purchased the radio ased upon the reputation of C CRANE to deliver a quality product at a fair price . The Radio I ordered was delivered on time and lives up to the advertised description in the on line catalogue. I was so impressed with the quality of the included earbuds that I ordered two more sets by phone call. I totally support the Value and Quality offered by C CRANE.

Great Workhorse
Santa brought me this radio and I couldnt be more pleased. I use it inside a new construction metal building on the midnight shift and it still pulls in many signals my Sony & Sangean cannot. Well worth the price, controls feel solid, unit sits upright well, small footprint, big clear sound. been using it just under 2 years 5 nights a week and no problems at all.

Nice Little Radio
Ok, I got an email, came here, saw this radio I bought…and saw it only had a two star review. I have one of these…would I change a few things on it? Yes. Does it deserve only two stars? No, defiantly not. I think we all know who this radio is competing with, which I also have…the little yellow Sangean. PROS: Great Reception. Stands upright as a pocket transistor should. Attractive design. Cord for FM NOT needed. Alarm clock. Quality feel. The Great reception, attractive design and quality feel are shared with the little Sangean. CONS: Not as intuitive as the Sangean. Buttons are a bit hard to read for older eyes. I find the time MUCH easier to read on the darkened Sangean display. CONCLUSION: Which should you buy? Thats 6 of one and a half dozen of the other. If youre a radio-holic like me, you will probably want both. SLIGHT EDGE: If I was traveling and could only take one radio, which would I choose? This one the deciding factors? Stands upright, no need to carry around extra part (wire antenna for FM), and the built in alarm clock.

Good reception and sound but the sleep timer has a really loud beep and is awkward to set as opposed to the Sangean Dt-400w that has an automatic sleep timer.

  • Can you explain how the 55 memories work?

    The 5 memory buttons provide 5 memories per band for quick use. As an advanced function you can access additional memory pages for AM and FM. To access memory pages 2-5 when in AM or FM mode, press and hold the Band button for 5 seconds. On the screen the word PAGE will blink (10 seconds until timeout). During this time, press the page number of memories you want using the 1-5 buttons on the front. For example if you wanted page 2 of the memories, press the band button for 5 seconds, then press button #2. Please note: This function does not work in WX mode.

  • How long will the radio retain my clock and preset settings while I change the batteries?

    The CC Pocket will retain its memory settings for approximately 15 minutes without batteries.

  • How do I activate the narrow AM filter?

    Quickly press memory buttons #1 and #3 at the same time while listening to your desired AM station. Press again to return to normal (wide) filtering. Note: This setting is helpful to eliminate unwanted noise or adjacent overlapping stations. Narrow AM (2.5 KHz) may work best for voice. The normal setting (4 KHz) is best for music.

  • Can I improve FM performance by using earbuds or an external FM antenna wire?

    The built-in FM antenna is good but it can be improved by connecting an FM antenna wire or headphones/earbuds.

  • I have noticed that my AM reception is not as good as it used to be. Also, how come it is not stopping on any stations when scanning the AM band?

    If you are scanning the band for a strong station and it never stops it may be set to 9KHz. Check to make sure you are set to 10KHz tuning; if you are in 9KHz mode it can greatly affect the reception, not just the tuning. Press and hold down memory button #5. If 10 pops up on the display then it was set at 9KHz which would cause of the diminished reception. If 9 pops up than it was already set on 10KHz and it would then need to be changed back to 10.

  • How do I restore the radio to factory defaults?

    With the power OFF, press and hold the memory buttons #1 and #5 for five seconds. You will hear a tone to signify it has been done.

  • When I use earbuds, I can hear "noise" (sounds like a soft hissing) in the background. How come?

    This is normal. What you are hearing is the audio amplifier circuit for the headphone jack.

  • How come my batteries slide around like they do not fit?

    Please make sure you are using (2) AA batteries. Using AAA batteries will not keep a stable connection to the battery contacts because they are too small.

  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
