    I'm trying to find a good Sports Armband Walkman. My Sony model died on me, and when I purchased the new Sony model, it had the most godawful reception I've ever heard! Even the strongest stations were coming in with a ton of static. You'd think that something that only receives radio waves would actually be able to do a good job of it.

    Anyway, long story short, I don't know what to get right now. The only other models besides the Sony I can find at stores are pretty crappy generic brands. At my Best Buy they only carry two models -- the Sony and some company called Insignia, which I've been unable to find reviews of online.

    It's the Insignia model IS-PA04072. Does anyone know anything about this brand or this model? Or know of any quality armband walkmen? All the stores I go to seem to be stocked primarily with the new Sony model.

    Insignia is Best Buy's "House" brand.

    They OEM out the stuff to various other companies- so it's hit and miss... it is usually pretty cheap though, and if you're worried about build quality you can get their replacement plan on it, usually good for 2 or 3 years... and refundable within 30 days, just like the radio would be if you don't like the reception.
