Sangean H201


I think I've had it for two years. I pretty much just use it when I'm showering in the morning. I don't think I've changed the batteries yet. However, it has an indicator for remaining battery life. My batteries have been "dead" for a couple of weeks now.

Waterproof. Great battery life. Several presets. Clock display.

Changing the time for DST is not obvious. For half the year, I'm an hour off.

H-201 vs H201 Weather


The Sangean marketing model expects the customer to be a fool.

I own an H-201 and wanted to upgrade to the model with Weather Alerts. I emailed Sangean and they indicate that they are shipping the H-201 with Weather Alerts even though there is no indication in any of the descriptions. Their website shows two...

Those of us who are aware of the "H-201 Weather" version and want to get that particular one have absolutely no way to guarantee that is the one we will get. I wrote to Sangean and they think I should just order the H-201. They expect me to be a fool.

Has been wonderful!


This radio is great! Sounds great in the shower, by the pool, on the beach, and in thunderstorms. Love having the flashlight on it, which is extremely bright. If something collapses on your head, just set the emergency tone. It is super loud! Just...

Cadillac of Shower Radios


It can be mounted permanant if you choose. Takes some big batteries, but doesn't eat through them. It takes a long time to use them up.

Everything is well-built and has lasted more than two years being used on a daily basis. AM and FM both work great and pull in every station around. Simply top notch and worth the extra money.

Large Footprint

Great Bathroom Radio


Great bathroom radio. I've had it for at lest 2 years. Still working as advertised. Good reception. Mainly used for listening to talk radio and news. Never used the light or other features although I have tried them. I have a mag lite for real...

Best Shower radio


Bought this for my wife last christmas so she would have a clock when taking a shower before work, this radio is at the top of its class, could not ask for better performance from a shower clock radio!

Excellent signal strength, waterproof, long battery life (11 months of 2 people showering per day and still going! not to mention 2 beach trips and time by the pool with the radio going for countless hours)

Radio is big and heavy


I purchased this as a gift for someone else, so I have not and will not use it myself.

My word of caution to the buyer is that this is a BIG and HEAVY radio -- too big and heavy to hang from the shower. It sits fine on a tub ledge, but if you have a standalone shower, you need to consider where you'd put it.
