Default FM antenna for NWZ S-544

I just found out that I have to plug-in the ear phone cable to be able to pick-up any FM stations ( with the switch on speaker position )

But the reception is still very weak, except for one or two stations.

Are there any external FM antenna available that could be plugged-in to the earphone jack to improve reception on this NWZ S-544 ?

The headphone cable is the FM antenna.....although you could try to find some headphones with a longer cord. Also, I think you need the switch to be in the headphone position to get your best reception.

This device is to be used on my motorcycle. Do you think a motorcycle radio antenna could be connected to it using the right connector, and would it help reception ?

Default Antenna

You could try to connect the antenna to the ground of a jack plug, leaving both left and Right not connected.
