I use the radio when I do chores around the house and riding my bike around the lakes. The earphones sound good, however the ear buds are too big and keep falling out of my ears.

Great radio for the price.

By Radio Bob Verified Reviewer from Santa Clara CA. on 04/22/2010


Pros:

Great Reception, Good Sound Quality, Durable, Long Battery Life

Cons:

Not The Best Selectivity

Describe Yourself:

Radio Hobbyist

Best Uses:

Travel

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had many radios over the years including high performance shortwave receivers.This is the first 'pocket" radio I have used.The radio has dropped the "V" out of it's model number and is now simply labeled DT-200X and deleted the now useless vhf analog TV band.It is quite sensitive,keeping up with a portable I have at 3 times the price of this radio.The only downside is selectivity.It is about 30 kHZ wide on AM, and since the channel spacing is 10 kHZ, receiving an adjacent channel station is difficult.However, rotating the radio to null out the local strong station sometimes will help this problem.FM reception is very good but has the same selectivity limitations. all in all this little radio can't be beat for the price.

I use this radio when I walk every day, great reception. I also use it at night when I'm going to sleep, I receive stations on AM on just about every channel. I have owned it going on three weeks now and am on the same two AA batteries! The sleep timer starts when you turn the radio on for 90 min.

This is a fine radio, but certainly not at all worth the extra money compared to the Sony SRF-37v in my opinion, unless you require a very small speaker and not simply earphone listening capabilities. PROS: 1) It has generally quite good reception on all bands, but no NOAA weatherband reception is available. This latter deficiency is now being corrected by the new Sangean DT-400W (available now elsewhere) with both weatherband reception as well as official NOAA weather alert detection capability for slightly more money than the DT-200VX. Both Sangean units have a monaural/stereo switch (bandwidth control) for FM listening improvement, but there is no RF (radio frequency) DX gain switch on the 200-VX as there is on the Sony SRF-37V, but see Con below. 2) It has a very big easy to read display with a battery level indicator, a lock display indicator, a 90 minute shutoff capability and on-screen indicator for late night listening, etc. It also has a backlit display, but see Con below. 3) There is a very nice arrangement (called My Favorites) for as many as 19 presets for any band in any order with simple retrieval of all presets, but only in order from the first one to the 19th one in a logical progression (it won't go backwards to find the previous preset for example). 4) Its deep bass boost is a very nice feature. 5) Automatic scanning capability and seeking capability, but see Con below. CONS: 1) Backlight cannot be turned off in daytime even in bright sunshine conditions. It is apparently an LED with very low power drain, but it seems very illogical to me that it can't be overridden when it isn't needed at all. 2) It is certainly well built with a fully attached battery compartment door (requiring two AA batteries), but it is not as rugged as the Sony SRF-37V (only requiring 1 AAA battery). Several reviews have discussed its demise after it was inadvertently dropped. 3) During automatic scanning/seeking, the audio is muted so you can't hear any stations as they are detected. Only the strongest stations are picked up during the scanning/seeking process. Of course during manual scanning the individual stations are easily heard so that you can pick the station you want to listen to. 4) When changing from the DT-200V to the DT-200VX, Sangean chose to put the speaker controls on the same slide switch along with the Stereo/Mono (bandwidth) changing capability. In my opinion the arrangement was better on the DT-200V with a simple and direct push button Stereo/Mono switch on the front of the radio and not on the side with one other commonly used function. 5) The supplied earbuds are very uncomfortable and could also be quite dangerous given the volume output that this unit is capable of with 2 AA batteries.
