5 Star Review   By Muddler on Sony - Official Store - Dec 19, 2013   

I have owned one of these for quite a while (3+ years?) and it still works and looks great - like new. Very rugged and durable with good sound quality and plenty loud. I am surprised to see the negative comments. I have used it on my boat, at the pool, in the garage, working outside, on the deck etc - getting splashed and knocked around. No I don't - leave it outside or let it sit in the rain - it is a piece of electronics. I mostly use it with my Ipod velcroed to the top and using the AUX input. Use it with an Ipod remote to control volume and songs.

1 Star Review   By Abatar on Sony - Official Store - Aug 30, 2013   

I tried to purchase online, the system did not work. I had to call and negotiate for overnight. FedEx screwed up, got it 2 days later. Got the radio, hook it up outside, then it rained for about 5 minutes, a glass full of water. The radio got wet but was working. About 30 minutes later radio LCD failed to display segments of the digits and letters, then the radio would not adjust volume, then it failed. Call Sony, they said, after calling to 5 people, then my wife called, "TOUGH!", send it back at your expense and tech support has last word on refund. Guess what I have last word, no more Sony products for a loooonnnnngggg time. Too bad, we need to upgrade the entertainment system, some speakers, TV.Will not even look at Sony

4 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 17 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "My husband and I have always had a "boombox" for the garage/patio that we used whenever we were outside. After about 15 years, our boombox finally died. We don't use MP3 players or IPODs (but may soon) so finding a boombox that played CDs and had an AM/FM radio in addition to the MP3 connection was important. I picked this one because it is meant for a harsher environment than inside of a home. I gave it to my husband for his birthday, and he couldn't be happier. The sound is great and there are very few cracks and crevices for dirt/dust to get in. Ordering from the website was easy and shipping was fast. "

Boombox without the Boom
3 Star Review   By Voodoo8 on Sony - Official Store - Sep 30, 2011   

Bought this unit to replace a Sony boombox that I had owned for almost 20 years. That unit was not claimed to be ruggedized, but it survived incredible punishment and exposure to the elements on multiple camping, canoeing, beach, and picnic trips. Plus it had great features and a great sound for a boombox. So when the CD player on it finally expired, replacing it with another Sony product was certainly a top of the list consideration. A lot has changed in 2 decades, and the boombox products market has certainly been decimated by the digital MP3 player. Sony's product line in this area certainly demonstrates that market change too. Of the few offerings now available from Sony in this category, the ZS-H10CP was the only possible choice that made any sense for the given need and there were few other comparable products I could find when I broadened my search. When the boombox arrived, we followed the simple instructions for use and tried to dial in a radio station to check it out. The LCD display turned out to have an out-of-box defect and was only partially legible. Signal reception was about equal to other radios we have owned. We then switched to CD and the LCD readout worked fine for this. Overall the sound reproduction is passable, but ceratinly not up to the standards set by my old Sony unit. The lack of any controls to adjust the sound coming from the box (except the MegaBass on/off switch) was also a disappointment. I never expected any music player, especially not one retailing for almost $130, to not have some sort of basic control for adjusting relative bass/midrange/treble mix. The unit does appeared to be well constructed with regular outdoor use in mind. It has some heft to it without being overly heavy. Although only used a few times in an outdoor setting so far, it handled those challenges without fault. The controls on the box are well suited to purpose in this regard too. Overall sound volume output is OK as well for outdoor use, but again not up to what my 20 year old unit could generate. In summary, about the only thing this product can do better than my old unit is play digital music and carry small items in the rear access storage compartment (which is a nice feature). Maybe I was spoiled by my trusted Sony boombox companion of many years, but on a comparative basis if that unit was a 10, I can only give its replacement a 5.

Awesome Sony Boombox
5 Star Review   By Computerhobbyist on Sony - Official Store - Mar 5, 2011   

Whether you’re on a construction worksite, relaxing on a yacht in the San Francisco Bay, fixing the car in the garage, need tunes to take along on that long planned camping trip, or are just someone that wants an excellent sounding boombox, this rugged Sony boombox ZS-H10CP that was designed for outdoor use is for you. This powerful and beautiful red Sony boombox produces clear sound and plenty of volume for music of any genre. The Sony portable features deep bass performance from a two speaker full range system with a large, digital jog dial volume control. The portable stereo includes a digital FM/AM tuner with 30 station presets and telescopic antenna for accurate, drift free radio reception. Additionally, the boombox features a CD player that is virtually shock proof with built-in ESP protection, two high impact speaker grills, backlit LCD display, headphone jack for private listening, line in jack for connection to a portable MP3 player, Mega Bass sound system, MP3 CD playback, water, dirt, and dust resistant high impact plastic construction, and a protective guard bar that doubles as a carry handle and protects the boombox from falling items. The boombox is powered by six D cell batteries that seem to last forever or the unit can be powered by the supplied AC power adapter. Please note that this product was not designed to be completely submerged in water but can stand up to wet conditions during an inclement weather situation. I use this stereo everyday and it never fails to sound awesome. Customers should be aware that the boombox does not come with a remote control and nor does it have a built-in cassette player/recorder for enjoyment of your tape library.

Boom Box
3 Star Review   By Nicholas on Sony - Official Store - Feb 11, 2010   

Uses a lot of battery juice! AC adapter works intermittently and I need to buy a replacement for it. CD cover/lid is cheap. Quality of sound is good, but I expected more amplification!

Great for Kids
4 Star Review   By HockeyDad on Sony - Official Store - Feb 2, 2010   

My 11 year old son is a hockey player and brings his boom box to every game. This box has taken a beating over the past 13 months and has held up well despite locker room bumps, falls, rain on the way into the rink, etc... It is plenty loud and has decent battery life. That's the good news. The only issues have been: Broken antenna, a loose CD cover (still works but now loose), and a lost AC cord door (great for storing iPod and cord). I ordered a replacement antenna and AC door from Sony parts including shipping for an outrageous $50. Just be aware if you ever need parts. All this said, I really like the product and would do it again.

GREAT Radio!
4 Star Review   By OLDoRedoWolf on Sony - Official Store - Dec 7, 2008   

Used this radio for ~1 &1/2 months at an outdoor summer camp. Got used almost everyday & in all conditions. Was left in hard rain at least 10 times. Held up well to being knocked off of a deck, only got a scratch. Doesn't drain batteries quickly either. Only thing I would suggest would be to improve the bass a bit. The low & mid end sound is great though. I've had it for about a year now & would have to say it's the nicest portable radio I've ever owned. Thank you SONY!

One of the last great boomboxes that will play an MP3 disk
5 Star Review   By member Apollos2 - Nov 30, 2007   

Strengths: Tough! This is a durable piece of equipment. It's large footprint keeps it stable on the ground. It's built to resist dust and moisture. Perfect for taking on an outdoor job.Oh yeah it will get loud!

Weakness: Its good size, you won't really be able to use it around the house, unless your moving. It's one of those stereos that belongs in the garage or an open basement.

I bought this to replace a Sony CD player that tipped over and broke on a job I was doing. Finding a decent box that will play a cd that I've burned a bunch (100+)of songs on is getting tough in this Ipod era. This one fits the bill perfectly. Everything about it is durable and it still sounds great. I'd do it again in a minute.

Am happy with my purchase
4 Star Review   By member birdman717 - Nov 27, 2007   

Strengths: mp3 playback, rugged design, rich sound

Weakness: no remote

I am happy with this boombox. it is one of the less expensive in its class, but performs to my satisfaction and is built very well. Also, I was very happy with the shipping speed of the vendor.

Sony ZS-H10 CD Boombox
2 Star Review   By member BIRDMOLLY7 - Apr 25, 2007   

Strengths: Tough main body with Aux. input for MP3 player which I wanted -- CD player a bonus.

Weakness: Too large for convenient everyday use. Handle on top is awkward to carry.

I was looking for an everyday, outdoor radio with MP3 player capabilities and this fit the bill on paper. Sound quality was good and having the CD player on it was an added bonus. However, the unit is bulky to say the very least and the Handle, carrying feature is much too awkward for carrying out to the yard or beach. The built in compartments in the back of the unit seem to be made of cheaper plastic . . . and seem like they would break easily as well. For the price of this unit, I actually expected a more substantial unit. Overall, I would say I was not pleased with the quality for the money on this unit.
