    I bought this to replace a clock-radio. I didn't read the entire description and found out after I got home that it has no clock. It does however do everything else it says it's supposed to do. I gave it 3 stars because the sound quality is not the greatest and I am not crazy about the volume function. It does have blue tooth but that's about it. Fortunately it wasn't expensive so maybe this is my lesson that you get what you pay for.

    At first everything seemed ok but made cheaply, after a week or so of using it here and there the source button pushed in and won’t come out. So now it’s stuck on cd and nothing can be changed.

      Hello Chip,

      Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. I am really sorry to read that you had this experience with your new Boom-box. This is definitely not acceptable behavior. If you still have this and require assistance, feel free to reach out to my team at any time.

    Adequate for small rooms or close outdoor settings

    |
    Posted .

    Volume is adequate for small rooms and for low noise outdoor settings in which all people are sitting within about 8 to10 feet of this "boom" box. This is the best reasonably priced battery operated unit offering such volume. (It does come with an AC adapter cord that can be attached and used). Would have been nice if it could recharge boombox batteries. It will recharge your MP3 player or other unit attached to its USB port, but only when boombox is connected to AC. This boombox's carry weight is not burdensome. The online description of this Insignia boombox, under specifications, list "Yes" for both Remote Control Included and Headphones Included. Neither, however, actually are included. When using its Bluetooth source, you can use your Bluetooth MP3 player or cellphone app player to control volume and change songs, playlists, etc. But, for AM and FM radio and CD you will need to use controls on the boombox.

    Overpriced, but it does the job

    |
    Posted .

    The styling fits nicely between "too-old-fashioned table radio" and "too-techno, too-portable" boom box. The sound is fine for a radio in this class and price range; you won't be impressed, but it is clear and loud enough, with good range. I'm not a heavy streaming music user, but the Bluetooth setup was as easy and functional as it is with any other device. Too be honest, I bought this mostly so that I could listen to the local news and weather while I fixed breakfast before work, and enjoy programs on NPR from my La-Z-Boy on the weekends. It does that just fine. Where it falls down is in the details, the "user experience". I generally have to press the power button 2 or even 3 times to get it to come on (this could be just my unit, but watch for it). The station presets are as easy to program as on any other radio, but there are no numbered buttons to recall them, just a single button that cycles through the stations. Take note that it only goes one way: if you're listening to preset 5 and you want to change to preset 3, you have to press the button at least 8 times: switch from 5 to 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10, then start over back at 1, 2, and finally 3. Sometimes when I start that process, from preset 5, the display initially shows that I am on preset 5; other times, the first press reveals preset 1 and I have to start from there. The volume control is a round, knurled knob as you might expect, but it doesn't "rotate" to adjust the volume; you turn it a 1/4-turn to the right or left until it stops, then push it further to "click" and adjust the *digital* volume by one number, up or down. At least setting the time is as simple as it gets: there is no clock. For the price I paid, I was expecting a better design. As it is, it does what I need it to, and looks nice enough doing it, so I've kept it, and I'll put up with the interface quirks. It was just surprising, in this age of fairly uniform electronics control designs, to find these few idiosyncrasies.

    Grandpa loves it

    |
    Posted .

    We were looking for a simple to use, old school, boombox for my 94 year old Father-in-law. This one works just fine. There aren't a ton of confusing buttons and he can listen to his CD's without any frustration. There are only two issues - first, the markings on/near the buttons are very light grey and in tiny print (even I had to get my reading glasses to see what they said). Secondly, the sound is just mediocre. But, Grandpa was able to learn where the buttons he needed are, and as far as sound goes, well, he listens to really old music that doesn't have the high quality that would demand a good sounding speaker. Overall, it's a nice little boombox for him.

    Good Product

    Posted .

    This boom box could be the best one on the market if only it had a remote control. I knew it didn't have one because of the reviews I read. What sold me was the great design, it would look good in any home décor. Has a great sound and not too pricey. I have two criticisms however. First, I don't like whip antennas because they easily bend and break. A wire antenna works just as well. Also I wish the volume control was set up like the tuning controls. I don't like the digital volume knob where you have to turn it one quarter inch either way and hold it to increase or decrease the volume. But still it is a great product for the price.

    Great Sound and Looks

    |
    Posted .

    Has a good sound, nice sleek look, and it picks up radio station with a digital tuner even in rooms with poor signal! The volume is great. I don't have to turn it up very loud to here it. The digital screen is nice and helpful for both radio and playing CDs. The only two things that I was a little disappointed with, was: It said it came with a remote, but didn't, and when playing CDs on repeat for an extended time, it has a tendency to skip the disc a bit. Overall, this is the best boom box I've purchased yet. Great for bedrooms!

    1st: I had to get it replaced because the CD playback was skipping. I didnt have one of those CD lense cleaners and nothing else i tried helped. The replacement played CDs flawlessly 2nd: The other functions worked well Audio Quality: Decent for the price. I'm sure it compares with portable speakers. Basically, I got this to function as a speaker for my Chromecast for my home office. Radio: I don't use much, But was able to get reception Bluetooth: Quickly paired with my phone. Audio was good. Aux: paired with the USB port in the back, I am able to connect a ChromeCast to this boombox and have the boombox power the ChromeCast. One less power cable to trip over and a great solution for Spotify streaming. CD playback: I see this as an extra, the replacement plays CDs without issue. Its nice to take out some of my old CDs and pop them into a player.

    It works great for the purpose I wanted it. To be able to listen to a ball game at night OR turn on Books on CD before bed and restart in last location heard next night. Once I figured out how to open the CD tray and which buttons to use. I'm happy with it. Have not tried any thing else, except CD player and radio

    I think I paid 20$ for this on a deal of the day. Was a little bigger than I expected, but not in a bad way. I hsve used it primarily as a cd player for my baby to listen to music as she sleeps. havent had any issues with that, Ive also played ollllddder cds that are pretty scratched up and it reads those fine too. Ive also used the bluetooth at close range and had no problems. sound quality at higher levels is obviously lacking, especially in the bass area. sound is kinda flat. but at this price point what do you expect?

    The CD boombox provided a portable way to listen to your favorite CDs and radio station. At times, the sound was not as crystal clear as your home stereo but it has to do with its built-in speakers. A better alternative than a cheap transistor radio.
