Well...

What specific bands do you want to listen to? There are some antennas that perform much better than others in cetain frequencies ranges because they are tuned for that range... but also, there are some antennas that are tuned for multiple bands...

I have one of these and got noticeably better reception in the 155MHz, 400MHz and 800MHz band:

My colleague has one of these:

Overall depending on how the stars are aligned I can't tell that one is better than the other- but both are hands and feet better than a stock antenna.
