Since you listen to these bedside radios with the headphones while in bed at night, I'm curious why you don't get a Sangean DT 400 or a similar radio for that purpose.

That's what I use so as to not disturb my wife late at night, and I can move it around with me if I am tossing and turning.It just seems easier than being tethered to a bedside radio.

The sound and reception is excellent, plus it has a weather button.

I do have an old RCA clock radio bedside for "normal" use and setting alarms.

I have a Sangean DT400, but the reception might prove unstable as I move around. Also, I'd have to change batteries once a week. We're talking 56 hours a week of use. I don't use a sleep timer. The radio is always on.

Ok, got it, I can see why you use the plug in radios.

Sounds like my wife. She uses a Sony SRF37 which has no self timer. Inevitably she falls asleep with the radio on all night, then starts fumbling for new batteries at least once a week at 3AM. Drives me nuts!
