Features Sangean U4 Ultra Rugged Bluetooth AM/FM Radio
The sound quality is solid with the best job site radios out there. The mid and highs are clear, and a strong base grounds them.
It has Bluetooth, a built-in 1A USB power port, a built-in alarm clock, a program that mechanically warms you of upcoming hazardous weather, an AUX port, an intelligent battery charger, a treble control, and a rotary bass so much more.
Sangean did put too much thought into the design as well as ergonomics. Hence using most of the above features is pretty straightforward.
The Sangean U4 radio is IP64 rated for water and dust resistance. A hard plastic protective cover and a solid build protect it from the most impacts you can expect on a work site.
