I've had the DT-210 for a year and I can tell you that the FM reception varies greatly based on what you are using for the antenna. The supplied antenna that fits into the headphone jack works very well. My big Sony MDR-V6 headphones get pretty bad reception most likely because of the 6 foot coiled cable. My Koss "plugs" earbuds provide decent reception since they are more like standard earbuds. I didn't try the earbuds that Sangean supplied because standard earbuds don't fit well in my ears. I've been thinking of doing a video review of the DT-210, and maybe I could demonstrate the difference.

It's all about the headphone cord. Koss PortaPros seem to do quite well.

Using the same headphone and in the same location, I picked up 49 FM stations on the CC Pocket and 26 on the DT-400W, on the same day and the same general time of day. The DT-400W did particularly badly with San Jose-area stations, which are on channels between those of San Francisco stations. It also couldn't get most of the lower-powered educational band stations that the other radio could. It doesn't really overload, but the selectivity just is not there.
