Dab radio's might be the way forward. But! if you are like me and suffer with hearing loss (and no I am not that old), you might find like I do that Dab radio's smooth sound is too difficult to listen to. Yes I do have a DAB radio - but its this little portable Sony that is always with me. It has a harder sound (technical term not know!). But this hard sound is easier to hear and the speech is much easier to descriminate clearly. The clarity of this compact radio is fantastic - and having used it both in and out of the house its definitely is portable and suitable for all types of listening.
Its small speaker belies the sound it emmits. The memory is 100 presets, but have to admit I only use a few. One problem I do have is with the set alarm - which I didnt! But regularly once a night it does beep - and having discarded the info sheet I dont know how to de - alarm it. Still not a problem for me as I say my hearing is poor!
Today's savvy traveler doesn't go anywhere without the link of a World Band Radio receiver. Sony's multi-band radios pack virtually unlimited information and entertainment in the space of a single paperback book.
ICF-SW7600GR World Band receiver provides accurate reception with stereo FM capability over a wide range of frequencies from LW and MW(AM) to SW and FM. 10-key DIRECT ACCESS tuning lets you capture distant stations directly, with the ease of using a pocket calculator. LCD display provides digital frequency read-out of the selected station. Hold button prevents accidental changes to preset station settings. ICF-SW7600GR features PLL Quartz frequency-synthesized tuning - an extremely accurate method of tuning, with optimum stability that reduces drift to a minimum. Synchronous detection circuitry reduces fading and annoying "beat" frequency interference from adjacent stations, as well as distortion due to fading in AM reception. SSB (Single Side Band) reception is provided for fine tuning and optimum multi-mode reception with reduced interference on the narrow AM band, for better overall sound. 100-station memory presets lets you quickly and easily tune into up to 100 stations that you select to be saved in memory. Auto scan tuning/memory scan provides professional-type microprocessor-controlled tuning functions to scan - one at a time - all 100 memory presets and let you listen for a few seconds before deciding whether to remain on a particular station or let scanning continue. 1KHz tuning step allows fast, precise station reception. Dual Standby function lets you set the alarm for two different wake-up times or wake you to two different radio stations. ICF-SW7600GR's World Time clock/dual clock allows you to display the current time at various locations around the globe as well the time where you live.
