Description

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 car type buttons for each band and stands upright when needed. Rubber coated sides help with grip. Lock switch to prevent accidental on/off or station change.

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!

Seems the red activation button mechanism may not be designed for long-term use.

My New Favorite Pocket Radio
I've had a lot of pocket radios in my 50+ years, beginning with an AM-only Sony TR-4100 c. 1971. I hesitated purchasing the CC Pocket because it's on the pricey side but finally took the plunge last month. Boy, am I glad I did.This is an ideal pocket radio it's sturdy, easy to grip thanks to the rubberized sides, has excellent sensitivity, the controls are thoughtfully placed, and when using headphones the sound is by far the best of any small radio I own.The CC Pocket is well worth its asking price.
PROS
CompactSturdySuperb sensitivityEase of use/Thoughtful layout of controlsFantastic sound through headphones


CONS
Tinny, congested sound through the small speaker. If the good folks at C. Crane made a lighter, smaller version of this radio with no speaker, I'd buy it.


BEST USES
Daily useTravel

Handy little portable radio.
This is a handy little radio. Good reception however on FM, the wire antenna is not very handy to use. I sit the radio on my night stand and have to move the wire all around until I get a good reception. Then when I let go of it and get into bed, the station gets all white noise and I have to get up and move the pesky little wire again until I just give up and listen to whatever I can find that's closer and stronger to our local area. That's the only thing I see wrong. The batteries last a long time for me. I use both rechageable and regular Alkaline batteries. Both work well. as for listening while walking or moving around with the headphones or the wire antenna, the same problem happens. Have to move the wire just right to listen to FM stations. These are small CONS I can deal with. It's just frustrating.
PROS
Small and easy to carry and use. Seems well made, good reception if you get the wire antenna just right.


CONS
wire antenna is a pain in the keister. Makes reception of FM stations frustrating to tune in. Looks Old fashioned with the wire sticking out of the top of the radio.


BEST USES
Anywhere you need/want a radio. At ballgames and other spectator sports. Good with earphones. Travel.

Early Friday Morning I ordered the CC Pocket Radio online as a present for my husbands birthday. Received the CC Pocket Radio this morning and went ahead and gave him his birthday present. He loves it!!! Will come in handy when we go camping at Ft. Brag, listening to the SF Giants baseball games.

Fantastic Pocket/Table Radio
I'd been using a slowly dying Sony ICF-2002 that needs to stay plugged in. I needed something portable to carry around the house or on a walk. Having used C Crane's products before I decided to take the leap and haven't regretted it for one minute.Last comment C Crane is a great company; they stand by their products and really care about delivering a great product and delighting their customers. If this company made cars or clothes they would have my business. They don't make 'em like C Crane any more!
PROS
Easy to program; very clear and concise manual; very well built; very good power efficiency; great FM reception, even without antenna; AM reception is good and even better with included antenna; speaker is more than adequate;


CONS
nothing serious enough to complain about


BEST USES
For portable or stationary use. A great little radio!

BIG Little Radio
As is the case with other C Crane products I've used, the reception and sound quality of this little guy is top notch. Able to fit in just about any pocket, I use mine as a companion on my daily walks and jogs, as well as while getting my yard work done. The push buttons controls and switches are easy to understand and use. In fact, I am able to change channels, bands, and adjust volume without even taking it out of my pocket. Use the excellent earbuds that come with the Pocket radio and you'll never want to share the remarable voice clarity with anyone. There is no way I can give this radio less than 5 Stars!
PROS
Outstanding voice clarity, convenient size, very good reception, finger-tip control with push button and read-out


CONS
NONE!

Buy a case of batteriesyou'll need 'em
Spend your money on something else at CC Cranea great company. I still have this newer model in a drawer use a much older CC Pocket Radio instead. I hope the old one never gives out, b/c I couldn't keep enough AA batteries on-hand for this model. Very disappointedI really wanted to use this dailynot gonna happen.
PROS
Sound is gooddesign ease of use is very nice.


CONS
1 Even rotating rechargeable batteries got old w/ this oneespecially when it conks out late at night. 2 I wish CC would seriously look at the energy requirements for the conveniences of this radio. Maybe increase size to accommodate 2 'C' batteries? 3 If you have a sleeping partner, watch out! My wife can sleep through anything these push button clicks woke her up repeatedly. I'm not sleeping on the couch b/c of a radio!

Seriously Flawed
This is my first C Crane purchase. I thought with the higher cost compared to other brands that I would get a better product. There are smaller, less costly, better functioning portable radios.
PROS
Excellent signal reception.


CONS
Volume control dial failed after a year of use. Complicated operation requires constant referencing to manual. Functions, such as ALARM can be inadvertently enabled.


BEST USES
Portable radio am/fm/weather band.

This thing is excellent!
This little radio has excellent reception. The lighting in my shop is a sea of fluorescent fixtures. My previous radio would not even pick up a signal. It was just a bunch of static noise. To my disappointment I would need to remove the earbud from my ear when I entered the shop. It was very annoying. The CC Pocket Radio is not affected at all by the lighting. Very impressive. I can go in and out of the shop without missing anything on the program I am listening to. Very nice ! At night it really pulls in distant AM stations, hundreds of miles away. I am very satisfied with this product and would recommend to anyone looking for a radio of this size. You won't be disappointed. Also, the earbuds are very well made. Perfect for my ears, although I only use one in my right ear. Thank you, CCrane, for the excellent product.
PROS
Reception is excellent, size and features. I am trying to think of a friend who might like one as a gift.


CONS
Absolutely none whatsoever.


BEST USES
Talk radio while on the go.

5 Stars for one reason
I have to give this 5 stars because it is the only pocket radio with better reception than the indispensable Sony SRF-M37W. Anyone complaining about the CC Pocket Radio's reception is doing so out of ignorance. I have spent thousands of dollars on pocket radios over the years and this CC Pocket Radio not the old one is the best I have ever used.
PROS
Incredible AM reception, better even than the Sony SRF-M37W and better than most table radios Built-in speaker, if you like that kind of thing ; Lots and lots of station presets available, more than the 5 it appears to support Long play time due to 2 AA batteries Fine tuning of AM frequencies possible steps at 1,9, or 10 Khz


CONS
Bulky for a pocket radio due to 2 AA batteries; if I had my druthers this would have only 1 AAA battery like the Sony SRF-M37W and no speaker


BEST USES
If you get bad AM reception at night this may improve it. Only radio I have that does so. But this depends on your geography

Great little radio for the money
This pocket sized radio has great sound with the quality earbuds included as well as the speaker. Plenty of presets for your favorites, great FM stereo sound, decent AM reception and the weather radio feature is especially a nice extra. I go to sleep listening to this radio every night as it has a timer and shuts off automatically. I can take it anywhere. Great when doing yard work. Very pleased.
PROS
Small but has great reception Caseing of radio is very durableReception is excellent Fits in your shirt pocketEarbuds included are comfortable with great sound.Plenty of presets for all your favorite stationsWeather band very necessary, especially in my part of the country.


CONS
The price is a bit high, but it didn’t deter me from buying it.The first one I bought lost part of the LCD screen display. It was just out of warranty by about a month. I called C Crane and they replaced it at no cost. I found that most outstanding. Otherwise, my previous radio still worked, you just couldn’t read the frequency from the screen.No other issues.

Great when doing yard workTaking walks or hikesGetting emergency weather reports Timer feature great for night time listening

Great quality and experience
I have had this little unit now for five years. The volume control is now giving out. It crackles into my ears, painfully so, when changing volume. But I will buy another one. It is very durable as I have dropped this onto hardwood floors numerous times and put it into the toilet bowl once. Dried it out for a few hours and the little monster went right back to working. I use it exclusively with earphones. I have no FM reception unless the earphone are in use as the earphone wire works as an antenna. I didn't like the original earbuds that came with the unit so I bought my own. Beats the old Sony Walkman by miles and miles which I had to replace annually.
PROS
Durability. Price. Listening experience. Size. Long battery life. Big features in a small package.


CONS
Original earbuds that came with unit.


BEST USES
Around the house listening when exercising and nighttime listening. Great stereo sound.

Best Darn Little Radio Ever
Pros: Dropped this radio into my Jacuzzi twice. The first time I left it in the sun to dry for a few days...dried out and worked perfectly..second time no such luck...that fact that it survived the first dip and continued to work was astounding...the second time it happened I made the mistake of hanging it over the fireplace...whoops..it melted..my bad...ordering another right now.
PROS
Darn thing is basically waterproof although they don't tell you that....just a great little radio.


CONS
None zero period...


BEST USES
Late light listening in the Jacuzzi or pool when you don't want a lot of volume...like that...,I think it would be great for your bug out bag as well...I might add one to mine although I have a good crank model in there right now.

Was really looking forward to getting better reception on KSCO over the hill. Good reception during the day. They must lower transmission power at night. This CCrane radio does not help at all. Same fuzzy reception as my 10 year old Sony walkman radio. Walkman is smaller and only 2 AAA batteries. Wish they still made it.

Great reception
I am totally pleased with my CC Crane pocket radio. It is exactly what I was looking for, increased sensitivity to pull in distant AM stations. Not only does it have a good front end design it has features for increasing distant reception. This radio is 10 times better than any pocket radio I have used or table model. Only the radio in my 2012 Honda can pull in the stations I want. For specifics, I am about 70 miles away from Albuquerque. Any thing can receive the 100KW KKOB radio. But now I can get the 10KW KVIA and the 1KW KDAZ stations while walking thru my yard hoeing weeds.
PROS
Great reception for a pocket radio,Small size,digitl tuning

Good Overall, some deficiencies
The authorized vendor for CCrane may be sending me a replacement due to the FM/WX audio distortion that I described earlier. I'd be interested to know if other users experience this, or if the problem only occurs on my particular unit.
PROS
Good AM/MW reception for a true pocket radio,4/2.5 KHz audio selection useful for less static on weak AM (especially talk stations),Decent FM/WX sensitivity/selectivity considering compromised antenna (earbud wire)


CONS
FM/WX bands on my unit has an audio distortion which sounds very much like an old mechanical clock ticking.,FM very susceptible to multipath distortion even in MONO mode


BEST USES
I have a CC-2E but it's just too big for some circumstances. The CCPocket comes close to it's performance and is a lot easier to carry.

Disappointment to success
We live in a mountainous area where radio reception is poor at best. On the advice of a friend I ordered a CCrane internet radio. I am 75 and I am familiar with how to use a radio. You plug it in, turn it on and dial up a station. After reading the 40 pages of the instruction manual, much (most) of which I didn't understand, I was only able to set the clock and fiddle with the back-light brightness. After several days of failed attempts to make the radio work I decided to send it back for a refund and started to reconsidered my friendship with someone who would recommend such a complicated, frustrating device. So I called the 1-800 number and got Annette at CCrane to find out the return procedures. Before I even got started she wanted to know why I wanted to return the radio. She then asked me if I wanted her help to make the radio work and with her and my wife's help I am now keeping the radio it is wonderful! It gets the one stat

Terrific Pocket Radio!
I am nearly 69 years old and have listened to a transistor radio at nighttime since I was 12 years old. This radio is perfect for my use and the tone is excellent for me. I only use the earbuds but the regular speaker is noteworthy as well. This is an excellent product in my opinion.
PROS
Love the size and compactness. Ear buds are perfect for me and I like the lighited screen at night time so you can find the channels you want to listen to thru the night


CONS
Have not found any dislikes in the time I have owned the radio.


BEST USES
We often lose our power during storms in our neighborhood. The weather channel is very convenient

Small, Perfect, Great Alarm
I spent online the last few months trying to find a small am/fm radio for listening around the house, cooking food, or when I am shaving, etc. I also like to fall asleep to the radio. I was surprised how portable radio don't seem to be sold anymore. I was concerned what I bought may be too small but the CC Crane radio is perfect. The sleep buton keeps my radio from playing all night, the alarm is loud/annoying enough to get me out of bed, and the radio works very well. I am very pleased. Too bad CC Crane doesn't sell HD radios. That would be nice! (Hint hint)
PROS
I like the sleep feature and weather station.


CONS
Lots of little instructions for different functions but easy to figure out.

This is the Pocket radio you want!
CCrane has perfected compact radio with the CC Pocket. I waited a long time to get one. In fact my old cc 400 is still going. When you find great products like this you expect every purchase from CCrane to satisfy you. Don't hesitate. Buy one now!
PROS
The radio is very intuitive. After reading the instructions you have the basic questions answered.,I have used the old CCrane pocket radio for 15 years and I instantly liked this one better. The display screen light is very helpful


CONS
I don't have any.


BEST USES
This is the best sleep radio I have owned. The sleep timer fits every possible need. If I didn't own a cc skywave radio this would be my travel radio.

Very Impressive Radio
I'm a sports fan so I appreciate the fact that such a small radio can pull in stations from places that I never would have expected. During the evening hours from here in Connecticut I've been able to pull in stations from Atlanta, Chicago, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York (as far west as Buffalo), Maryland and West Virginia. Not bad!
PROS
Solidly built,Sleep timer,Small enough to actually fit in your pocket,Superior reception for a small radio,Backlight,Clock/Alarm,Control Lock


CONS
Slot in battery compartment cover leaves radio exposed to possible moisture,When using the built-in speaker audio quality is fine for talk radio - news and sports but when listening to music you will want to use the included headphones.

The speaker isn't the best quality. You will need to keep the manual close at hand if you are an old fart with a weak memory. There is A LOT TO THIS RADIO! Can do back flips and handstands wen you push the right buttons at the right time. A lot to remember but not necessary.

Amazing Product!
I have several CCrane radios and they all perform very well. I work in a heavy RF environment and I am surrounded by steel and brick. This little gem works in those type of environments. Possibly better than some of it's big brothers. I shopped around for a basic AM/FM pocket radio and thoroughly checked different competitors. I decided on this unit. It just seemed to have the basic functions I was looking for. All I can say it WOW! If you are looking for a good basic AM/FM pocket radio with some added bonuses in reception, I would undoubtedly recommend this pocket pal. Great sound along with the nostalgia of the AM band. I've run this radio for three days at 8 hours per day and still have full battery indicator (battery dependent Duracell Quantum.) If you have second thoughts just buy it. You won't be disappointed. I'm have'nt and it just works. Thanks again CCrane for another great product. Added bonus is you get variety vs. an IPod or MP3 p
PROS

This little radio has become my constant ranchers companion working outside in rain, shine, sun, dust, or windy conditions. I travel/work sometimes for hours with this little jewel strapped down or in my pocket, just playing away. And the weather band has saved my bacon more than once from being caught by thunderstorms in the most remote badlands of Wyoming. Awesome radio.... I have given one to each of my kids, and am ordering another one for spare. thanks CCrane.
PROS

Great radio!
CCrane really makes the best radios for any occasion and use-I also have an older CCrane radio which is much larger-this radio also is very well designed, has great sound and flexibility of use.
PROS
CCrane has made a number of great improvements over the Sangean Pocket radio that I had purchase from you years ago.,There are many changes too numerous to mention and all are very useful


CONS
I have tinnitis and have had for years-I use these pocket radios to help me get to sleep and this radio is very easy to use. I have not found one item of negativity on this radio.


BEST USES
I would recommend it anywhere one wishes to have portability and versatility in use for listening to radio stations. I have been able to receive almost twice the amount of stations since I purchase this radio.

Worth the money. Don't expect the reception or speaker quality from the larger radios.
PROS
Buying my third one today. Mine is used 12 hours per day. I use rechargeable batteries which last about 36 hours of play time - less play time than disposable batteries BUT I have been using the same 6 rechargeables for over 2 years. The 6 cost me 5$ at WalMart.


CONS
Speaker qualilty is not great. With headphones quality is fine. Tips over if you try to stand it up.


BEST USES
While sitting,reclining and/or staying still.,I have worn out the buttons owing to constantly changing stations.

Great for what I use it for
Used this radio every day at work for about 4 months. It pulled in more stations with clearer reception than any other pocket radio I tried. After 4 months the volume knob broke and I was stuck with a radio that would only play loud. I couldn't open the radio up to fix it, but it was within the year warranty, so I sent it back to cc and they sent me a new one. battery life is around 40 hours, so i can't complain there. I now farm full time and listen to it on the tractor. I'm 50 miles away from a big city, but it pulls the stations in better than any other portable radio. Of course there are places where it fuzzes out, but that is to be expected with a radio of that size in hilly country, or in dips and coulees. Also, I accidently ran it over with the tractor on a gravel driveway and it didn't damage it at all! It has more presets than there are radio stations in this part of mt, and if I had to do it again I'd buy it.
PROS
Best am and fm reception out of any other pocket radio I've tried.

very poor battery life- radio eats batteries
I probably would not purchase the same radio again due to the battery life issue I have experienced. Maybe I received a defective unit that constantly drains the battery even when the radio is turned off.
PROS
nice radio with several options and decent reception


CONS
battery life is poor. must remove batteries after each use or else the radio is dead the next time you want to use it

Mr.
As a longtime radio nut..dxing and all that ,I am really impressed with this little jewel..At night I can listen to WSB in Atlanta and quite a few stations further away than that.my CC Radio plus doesn't measure up to this one..During the day I can listen to AM in my vehicle at work...no other radio I have tried would do it...FM is excellent also..I use the weather section and it works very well...Over all this is probably the best pocket radio you will find at any price....JLB

Exceptional
Definitely the best radio I have ever had the pleasure of owning. For its size, the CC Pocket has better reception and audio quality capabilities than I thought was even possible for a small radio. The CC Pocket really does fit in my pocket, and I walk around with it almost always. With my old radio I would have to hold it up in my hand in order for my favorite stations to even be received. With the CC Pocket, I can listen to all my favorite stations with extremely clear reception no matter where I am or how I am carrying the radio. Along with the exceptional audio quality of AM, FM, and WX stations, the CC Pocket has more features than I've ever seen on a small-sized radio. Everything, from the sleep timers to the alarm clock to the one-touch preset buttons, makes this radio the best I've ever owned. And it gets even better! The CC Pocket comes with a pair of CC Buds! At first I expected the included ear buds to be cheap in quality, like most other included ear buds. But no! The CC

Great (In My Area)
My review is based on the radio's use for about four months. My satisfaction is based on the radio's use in an area with a plethora of stations YOUR RESULTS MAY VARY. My last pocket radio was a Sony, FM/AM Walkman (circa 1988, hey! it still works) but the C.Crane is so much more compact.
PROS
Small,Runs forever on 2-AA's,Included ear buds are decent,Speaker use at low volume seems to have spousal approval at breakfast table.


CONS
Station changes when you pack it in the front pocket of jeans and you bend over to clean up after your dog poops.

I miss my pocket radio and can't wait to get my new one.
PROS
Great reception.


CONS
Since I lost my first one while tilling a field. I did find it but ran over it with my tractor. Somehow it just slipped out of my pocket. I am going to make a little drawstring bag to hold my next pocket radio and attach it to my clothing as the clip won't hold it in a pocket when bending over.

AWESOME POCKET RADIO
This is my first Ccrane product I purchased and I tell you the CCrane pocket radio is one exceptional little radio. I love the way it feels when I have it in my hand to change stations. The sound quality is superb on AM,FM and weather band. At nighttime, I can pick up dozens of clear channel stations as far as Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Nashville, New Orleans, Dallas/Ft. Worth and a few stations from Mexico and the sound as if it we're local. Depending on weather conditions. FM stations come out very good and with the included wire antenna the radio can pick up stations 60-80 miles away, same goes for NOAA weather stations. And I really like the Alert feature for Severe weather. Everything on this radio for me is perfect. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a small pocket size radio with great reception. This one is for you. So Thanks again to CCrane for making this great radio!
PROS
Very good sound,AM FM & NOAA weather radio feature,Lightweight & powerful for little radio

Almost the Perfect Pocket Radio
Back in the 1970's I bought a small Sony transistor radio that I used with an ear piece while dog walking and when waiting for lunch to be served, for the bus to come, etc. It was okay except the tuning and volume knobs were on the side and they'd change when I'd stuff it in my pocket and sometimes the earphone would sometimes become unplugged, causing my pocket to talk to me and send me scrambling to silence it. The CC Pocket Radio remedies all this by providing preset station selection, push-button digital tuning, the ability to turn the speaker off, and most importantly, the ability to lock it all in. The volume control is in the top center and isn't bothered and is easy to adjust by reaching in my pocket. The only thing I'd change if I could would be to make it thin enough to ride in a blazer or suit coat jacket. Other than that, I this may be the perfect pocket radio!

High tech for an old song!
My reception has been totally unexpected-not at all unusual to pick up stations 150-200 miles distant-almost unheard of with typical small portables....battery life is better than many others...but I still keep a spare pair ready. Worth it's price hands down! LOVE IT!
PROS
Ergonomic and easy to program and much easier to operate than anything in it's class. Routinely able to recieve distant stations even when atmospheric conditions aren't ideal. It's definitely a personal pocket radio-not a boom box-but real good at what it's meant for. IT IS better than advertised.


CONS
The FM/WX wire antenna may seem a pain at first-but a telescoping antenna just wouldn't cut it in everyday portable use-a small clothespin will easily allow you to coil the wire and/or attach it to your pocket, collar or a curtain. It takes some getting used to the tactile feel of the case but that goes away real quick when the whole thing fits in your smallest pocket and doesn't slip out of your hand (or your pocket) like the smooth plastic ones do.


BEST USES
Any time any place you need a small AM/FM/WX w/o any attachment to house & home & car!

best pocket radio I have owned
i have owned many pocket radios over the years. Some have been better than others. This radio is by far the best I have ever owned. I listen to talk radio at night, as I fall asleep. This radio brings in far away stations and keeps them from fading in and out. The build quality is excellent and the earbuds are some of the best I have used. Battery life is quite good as well. I highly recommend this radio

Terrific Radio
Speaker audio quality is OK, but far from the best feature of this radio. Audio - speaker or head phones - is articulate. No bass emphasis. I'd call this radio headphone sensitive if you're looking for audio quality. Its there, but not every headset is good/ best. The included ear buds are perhaps a very good place to start. There IS a difference between this and a $20 Pocket Radio, and the cost is justified.

Poor indoor FM reception
This is a very well made radio. It exudes quality. I really wanted to like it. However, it gets poor reception - AM andy FM - through the speaker. Especially indoors. It comes with a wire antenna that you have to plug in to the headphone jack. It helps with reception. But still not great. This radio could use an extendible built in antenna. C.Crane, you have produced what is obviously the best built pocket radio available. Please improve its reception, especially for those of us that want to listen to it through the speaker. Indoors. Without having to hook up a dangling wire antenna to it. The reception on this radio should match its build quality - e.g., outstanding.
PROS
Very well built. Rugged. Design shows attention to detail.,Speaker is clear and gets pretty loud.

Poor indoor reception AM and FM. This radio should include an extendible rod antenna

Best Portable AM FM WX radio, PERIOD!
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Crane, Employees/Design Team: I received my order, and works much better than I thought. I had the impression that c.crane was more of an overpriced electronics boutique, however after reading reviews and description, I decided to buy this little pocket radio anyway. Now I see that it is worth every penny of the price I paid for it. So much thought was put into the design and circuitry. It would be hard to explain this on your website or in customer reviews, but it's obvious after playing with the features. Thanks for offering such quality at an affordable price. I will be ordering from you again. v/r, Geoffrey Casey Fort Drum, NY
PROS
Simple menu to operate features. Sleep timer, Menu driven with front buttons eliminate need for extra knobs or selector switches, well built-solid, is the Cadillac of all portables.


CONS
That I didn't purchase this radio before wasting money on my cheaper $10-20 radios. On a serious note I can think of no cons for this radio.


BEST USES
In garage, day carry while walking or exercising. On bedside table with sleep timer. In my go bag while traveling. Great for weather reports too-no need to waste your smartphone batteries and/or data usage when u have a radio like this.

Fine Little Radio
Love almost everything about the radio. Only negative is there is a very annoying background hiss when using headphones, even with the volume all the way down. Of course, you only hear this in a very quiet room. So private listening at home is out for me. Sigh. But for walks it is great because of all of the outside road noise. Reception is surprising good on FM. On AM it is also amazing for it's size, as I can get Milwaukee, Chicago, and a lot of small power stations in the area DURING THE DAY. I have owned this radio for 2 years now. Maybe the latest models have had the hiss removed.

No, this isnt a review for a Timex watch, but for this little tank of a radio! I dont remember how many times Ive dropped it on a cement floor or tile, only to have it keep playing! Very impressive build quality and great sound and reception. When you plug in the FM antenna, the sound just explodes out of the speaker. I cant speak highly enough of this radio.

Works Great!
This little radio hears well on all three bands. The sound is very good. I love the rubber surround and the easy to use presets. The CC Buds work well with it. The users manual was a pleasure to read. I believe it was written by a team for whom English is a first language and by people who understand radio and propagation of radio waves. Very clear and easy to read.

Love this radio but I had the same problem that I see other users had...the on/off switch broke - got stuck inside the radio - and couldnt be fixed.

Good and bad
This radio has a lot of nice features such as presets, ability to fine tune a station, a soft rubber type outer coating. The disappointing part is the am reception. I bought this radio to replace an old Sangean DT400 that was getting pretty worn after several years of heavy use. The Sangean is a lot better in pulling in distant AM stations than the CC pocket radio. The CC is a nice radio but If AM reception is important in your purchase decision, get the Sangean.

Nicely designed with digital features easy to use. Stations sound great through ear buds supplied. External speaker performs as expected for its size. Strong, local stations are received without overload. Plenty of AM and FM stations to listen to. Perfectly satisfied and suits my needs 100. Very nice radio!

Very good AM DX
I cant believe how well this pulls in distant AM stations at night. I consistently get WTAM, a 50K station from Cleveland, and Im located in New York City. Battery life has been great, Im still going strong on the NiMh batteries I put in over a month ago. I have also dropped it twice while bicycling around, due to my being kinda careless and it is none the worse for wear. Nice Radio.

Noisy Volume Control
Great little radio. Pulls in KGO almost every night. However, the volume control has become painfully noisy.

I use it all the time
I use this radio to listen to baseball games, talk, and some music. The speaker has good sound quality and volume considering this is a small portable radio. The presets are very convenient. The reception is great for FM, and the batteries last forever. Havent really tried AM much so I cant comment on that. I am very pleased with this radio.

Did not meet my expectations
I have often bought OTHER items costing far less than this $60 radio, that ALSO included batteries. Crane does not include batteries. Want to know how to program the 50 station presets? So do I! Alas no documentation/ manual is included.

Best Pocket Radio ever
Ive owned this cc pocket since about the time they first came out. It has endured all the hard use I have put it through. Easy to use. Its reception is amazing..On it, I can listen to Canadian stations which I cant pull in on a much higher priced Sony standard sized portable. This radio is excellent. Just to let you know, Ive got an old, large cc radio purchased when Art Bell was on back in the 90s. It is excellent and my cc pockets reception is comparable to it.

Great Radio
BUY THIS RADIO! Bought it to replace a previous CC Radio that has seen tons of use and abuse over the last 5 years. This on is even better than the last! The only thing missing is an AC power source for it, but dont let that stop you from obtaining it because the battery life is more than adequate. Go for it!!

I LOVE my pocket radio. This is my fourth radio Ive bought from C.Crane. It has great sound quality, is easy to use, long battery life, and I love their idea of having basic instructions printed on the inside of the battery compartment. You cant go wrong with this rugged little radio!

VERY disappointed
I bought this little radio believing it would be my last AM/FM/WX radio. At first it seemed to work fine even if the reception was ok at best. But now I have had it less than two months and its busted. It will only tune to the wx channels. I cannot switch between bands. the lock/unlock button does nothing. I dont even think its worth the hassle of sending it back.

Absolutely perfect pocket radio
This is my third radio from CCrane and I was truly stunned by the reception of this little radio. It fits in my shirt pocket while walking. As with my CCrane2 and CCrane shortwave the quality is there. Myself, I rather pay a little more for quality and be satisfied. Keep in mind it is a pocket radio and you are not going to get the sound of big speakers but I just love mine.

Good quality, excellent servicing
I got this radio about ten months ago. It is quite impressive in acquiring distant stations and overall quality. Recently, however the on/off button on the radio broke. I contacted C. Crane for repair and even though I had the radio about ten months it was still in the warranty period. I returned the radio and C. Crane immediately sent me a new radio in exchange- no hassle, just excellent service for a very quality product.

So great in the dark!
Im often awake in the middle of the night and love listening to the radio. I know where every button is on my Pocket and never have to turn on a light! The preset buttons allow me to easily hunt for different stations. The sound is perfect - the range is incredible. Love my Pocket!!

Noisy
Great reception, but I use my pocket radio at night in bed, next to my wife. This model was nixed by my wife due to the noisy buttons for station changing. So I went back to my DX200 model. Listen up design engineers!

preset stations - memory
Great little radio. I have an issue with the presets: by mistake I set up a station 3 times, so when I scroll up or down I get that station 3 times. Did not find a way to cancel the preset. or override it. If anyone has a solution for that, that would be greatly appreciated.

Great feature set, poor battery life
I have mine for a year now, and while I love the features and interface (both superior to my Sangean DT-400W) it has a slight hiss when using any earphones (including top end $400 Monster Turbine Pro Coppers) while the DT-400W is hiss free. More importantly, the DT-400W will milk a set of batteries forever, while the CC Pocket eats them like candy. Mine will kill a brand new pair of Eveready lithium AAs in one month flat and I barely listened to it for more than an hour or two. It also dissolves alkalines with similar abandon. They seem to last a little longer, maybe two months with virtually no playing use. My Sangean DT-400Ws and DT-200 will go well over a year just sitting in a drawer and still show (and test) a full three bars (max) of battery power on their meter. If down to two bars, they still run for days of play time. The CC Compact, if down to two bars, will go dead in an hour. Either mine is defective, or the circuitry is poorly designed. Not ready for prime time unless this

FAQ
Can you explain how the 55 memories work?
How long will the radio retain my clock and preset settings while I change the batteries?
How do I activate the narrow AM filter?
Can I improve FM performance by using earbuds or an external FM antenna wire?
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?
How do I restore the radio to factory defaults?
When I use earbuds, I can hear "noise" (sounds like a soft hissing) in the background. How come?
How come my batteries slide around like they do not fit?
