FM Antenna - the earphone cord?

Hey All - just got a Clip Port Plus. I believe the earbud cord acts as the FM antenna. I plan to use this in the gym while watching the TV with FM transmission. Can someone verify this? This may indicate I need an antenna plugged into the head phone jack. I can hear via B/T strong stations, but only get a few w/o a headset plugged in.


Sorry for the new-bee question but wanted to ask as I play with the product.

correct the wired headphones act as the antenna for the FM radio.

Great to hear that you were able to get any FM reception via BT--I've never managed that with other players.  Will have to try some more.
