Beats by Dr Dre bring you high quality music through very comfortable headphones. Beats Radio brings this same quality of music but through all your favourite radio channels. The radio is small and compact and can be transported via the handle at the top. The three types of headphones that Dr Dre manufactors will all be able to be placed on top of the radio. For the best comfort and fit we recommend using studio beats.

You need to start by taking apart your sony radio. This can be done by using a different array of hand tools. There are a couple of screws on the back on the radio so you will need to remove these. Then using a screw driver or another implement you need to pry open the radio and remove the casing. Once inside you will need to unscrew 2 more screws which attach the circuit board to the the plastic casing. Once you have done this then you have taken apart your radio.
