Reviews around sound (5.00 of 5)

  • cool size, Internet radio works wherever there is wifi, sound good, haven't used mp3 function, antenna headphone great sound, battery life seem OK, but I haven't pushed it yet.
  • Great selection of music, Nice clear sound, excellent features like replay,save and channel announcing
  • Don't buy a stupid home kit, buy the transmitter, use Internet radio and you have great sound on your fm radio at home
  • The sound is much improved over it's predecessor when using as an mp3 player and, in my opinion, far better sounding than any IPOD.The antenna headphones are probalby the BIGGEST improvement as the original ones were god awful.
  • At home, I plug it into myBose wireless speaker and the sound is great.

Reviews around receiver (4.33 of 5)

  • I bought a stileto 2 to listen to Howard Stern (I'm a huge fan).
  • This is not a self contained portable satellite receiver that will work anywhere with just the antenna head phones
  • I don't pretend to think that this is the best receiver for everyone.
  • great sirius receiver but discontinued. bought a used one after mine broke so that all of the accessories dont go to waste.
  • I think that people who become disillusion with this product really don't understand how a satellite signal works, and what can affect it reception of it by this portable receiver

Reviews around music (4.03 of 5)

  • The idea of being able to record your favorite music or talk show along with being able to fast-forward and rewind is fantastic and the reasons I bought it
  • Since I listen to the radio at work every day, I just attach it to my Sirius portable boombox at night and program it to record my favorite shows and music, and have several hours of stuff to listen to each day
  • I bought a stileto 2 to listen to Howard Stern (I'm a huge fan).
  • Also you can record live satellite feed of your favorite shows or music.
  • Very choppy, intermittent music

Reviews around thing (3.95 of 5)

  • I knew I'd like this thing, but I didn't know how much!
  • The only thing good about this meadow muffin is the battery life.
  • The cool thing is that you can fast forward all of the commercials.
  • When it works, I love it, but that isn't very much time - the rest of the time, I despise it and Sirius should be ashamed of itself for inflicting these things on its loyal (lifetime) customers - they are a true piece of CRAP
  • It played random files from whatever date and time and length it felt like and not even the same way twice, which when you are recording Howard Stern, is not a good thing

Reviews around player (3.67 of 5)

  • Sirius XM cannot work with a customer service program as horrible as they have
  • This is a great portable satellite radio as well as an MP3 player
  • Since good sharp sound quality is really important to me, I figured I would put my money towards a good MP3 player and download all the extra content I want via pod-cast or through internet radio.
  • One feature that is seldom mentioned is the fact that the Stilleto is an excellent MP3 player, compatible with Play for Sure Music Services
  • I have replaced the battery once so far but only because I still use it as a portable player on trips (better than wasting my HTC One streaming over 4g).If you purchased this with a Lifetime Subscription you are especially set.

Reviews around device (3.58 of 5)

  • - THIS DEVICE WILL PERIODICALLY ERASE EVERYTHING ON IT WITHOUT WARNING.
  • The reception hooked up to a car or home kit is fine, but again, this is supposed to be a portable device
  • If you don't do this, the device will freeze, especially if you have more than 3 shows recorded.
  • I bought a stileto 2 to listen to Howard Stern (I'm a huge fan).
  • It really is my favorite gadget and has easily replaced my Ipod as the portable audio device

Reviews around signal (3.57 of 5)

  • I walked around and although uninterrupted, I walked under a tree and the signal was interrupted.
  • Yes if you are under a cover like a gas station or heavy tree you will lose signal.....but think about it...if you block the signal wave to your antenna you will lose signal
  • In cases of heavy cloud cover, signal will sometimes get spotty if I'm under a tree.
  • If you can't get a good signal, just replay an old recording
  • Have had NO problem keeping a signal while walking outside or while connected

Reviews around satellite (3.44 of 5)

  • Forget the home/outdoor receiver if you can't locate the receiving antenna outside - even using the signal repeater and placing the home/outdoor antenna in a window, I still can only get an intermittent satellite and/or terristeral signal.

Reviews around stiletto (3.36 of 5)

  • He loves the Stiletto 2 and Thanks Me nearly every day for buying it
  • The Stiletto, with it's limited storage capacity, might not appeal to someone who is in love with their iPod, but for someone like myself that really enjoys the immediacy and unpredictability of radio it really takes portable media players to the next level.
  • The Sirius Stiletto 2 is portable like a cell phone and it brings satellite radio beyond the automobile and table radio
  • I bought a stileto 2 to listen to Howard Stern (I'm a huge fan).
  • My Stiletto was frozen and I had to send it in for a replacement.

Reviews around antenna (2.23 of 5)

  • The Internet Radio still works as long as I do not get far from the Wi-Fi at the house.
  • I still use them as an antenna, but both speakers no longer work, so I'm forced to plug in a pair of earbuds, which only sometimes work
  • As an engineer who has developed software for networked devices and did some early packet radio work, the failure looks more like an issue with lost packets and time outs rather than a "Faulty Antenna".
  • The Internet Radio still works as long as I do not get far from the Wi-Fi at the house.
  • I get a 'Supervisor' on Technical Support that insists that the problem with my WiFi is a bad internal Antenna.

Reviews around customer (1.00 of 5)

  • in marketing class they taught me that you can never know how much damage just one angry customer can do to a company; so make sure everyone's happy
  • Horrible customer service - they don't have the knowledge to help.
  • I think their staff is better trained at feeding angry customers with lies than with actually addressing issues with their product.
