Great radio!
By 3dtheatermanVerified Reviewer from Florida on 1/5/2012

This radio is a refurbish and it looks brand new. It came very quickly from SONY direct online and I am very satisfied. The AM reception is excellent and outperforms my older SONY CD/AM/FM/TV/Weather Walkman. The volume on the CD player was toggle and would lock but this radio has a nob which I have accidentally moved when handling the radio. I listen to AM most of the time. The FM reception is also excellent and of course is determined by the length of the headphone wire which is the FM antenna. The weather bands don't do well on any radio or CB around where I live but it is still audible. I recommend this radio.

 
Great radio
By RanunculasVerified Reviewer from Westcheater County, NY on 11/28/2011

Brought this a couple of years ago for my husband. He hadn't used a Walkman before, but since he started jogging, I thought it was a great idea. HE LOVES IT. He jigs almost every day and loves it. Great simple design. Easy to use.

 
SONY SRF-M85W SPORTS WALKMAN REVIEW
By ComputerhobbyistVerified Reviewer from NY on 6/20/2011
Bottom Line:
Yes

A morning commute to the city on the Staten Island ferry, a relay track event, the sailboat race on the lake, an aerobic exercise routine at the gym, the morning jog, up-to-date weather forecasts on the fishing trip, a handy car ride companion for a passenger on that long anticipated trip, and it’s perfect for the poolside private listening session. The Sony Sports Walkman is a wonderful audio and time measurement accessory for all of these applications and many more as well. The Sony SRF-M85W FM/AM/Weather Band S2 Sports Walkman is a well-constructed, water-resistant, 3 band portable radio that is deftly suited for your sports and work related travel endeavors. The Sony Walkman performs well on the morning bus ride to work, can easily handle an inclement weather event while walking on the boardwalk, and produce quality audio in adverse operating conditions. This Sony SRF-M85W Walkman features 5mW + 5mW high output audio power for seemingly perfect reception and reproduction of your favorite FM/AM radio stations. This portable offers excellent sensitivity and selectivity with respect to its reception capabilities of the analog broadcast radio spectrum. FM music stations come in with great fidelity and impressive bass response. AM band reception is equally adept at pulling in my favorite talk radio programs with great voice clarity. The Weather Band station that I can receive with this unit is audible, but the volume control must be increased to a much higher level compared to the FM/AM bands, to achieve satisfactory results. This Sony Sports Walkman is comfortable to wear either on your arm with the supplied arm band or on your belt with the included clip. The Sony Walkman’s supplied sports stereo headphones are lightweight, provide the system’s FM/WB antenna, and offer high quality sound performance. This Sony Walkman can stand up to the rigors that fall within the range of your sporting activities. The Sony SRF-M85W Walkman is replete with features that will make any sports or portable audio enthusiast happy. Those features include: digital phase locked loop synthesized FM/AM/WB tuner, FM stereo reception, Weather Band Channels 1-7 reception, sports headphones, 3.5mm headphone jack, 25 FM/AM/WB station presets, up/down preset tuning/time set controls, FM/WB headphone cord antenna, built-in AM ferrite bar antenna, DX/Local sensitivity switch, band selection switch, Mega Bass control, Mega Bass sound system, inverted LCD display, multi-function display modes, hold function, rotary volume control, power button, enter, mode, display controls, digital clock, stopwatch, split timer, pitch timer, start/stop, split/reset stopwatch controls, arm band, belt clip, one AAA battery operation, battery life indicator, and operating instructions. With its Mega Bass output, FM/AM/WB reception, advanced stopwatch feature set, lightweight design, long battery life, and ease of use, the Sony SRF-M85W Sports Walkman is the right choice for any portable audio need. Good Luck. Enjoy.

Real Disappointment
By fullclevelandVerified Reviewer from Ontario on 4/14/2011
Bottom Line:
No

I like listening to radio when I exercize. So, I was really happy to see this product come on the market. However, it has not lived up at all the high quality I have experienced in Sony products owned previously. THe design is poor. It is a bulky devise - sticking out a good 1.5 inches from your arm. With no protective case available, one has to be careful to keep it from hitting equipment or other objects as one works out. All the controls are on the outward or front facing surfaces, so these are also susceptible to getting hit as well. But the worst part came this week when the device started turning itself off for no reason at increasingly shorter intervals. When that interval got down to a few seconds I just gave up.
