Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good value for money - decent memory size, light weight.
Great for travelling.
Bad points:
For the gym and wearing in-ears, the sounds are not that loud for people with hearing impairment; perhaps a clip feature would have been good. Means you'd need another one for the gym.

MP3 Players Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Philips GoGear ViBE Portable AV Player packs big entertainment in a superbly small design. Its 1.5” full color display shows off album art and folder view ensures easy file navigation and organization.

Playback MP3, WMA or DRM music from subscription services

Your GoGear player supports the latest Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology from Microsoft that enables it to recognize and play back music purchased or subscribed from online audio services using the same technology. Or create your own MP3 or WMA music files by ripping your audio CDs and transferring them onto your player to savor the vast universe of digital music available.

FM radio with RDS and 20 presets for more music options

RDS (Radio Data System) is a communications protocol standard that allows digital information to be transmitted over FM radio broadcasts. RDS-enabled FM radio receivers can display this useful information that includes station identity, program details and song title and artist, etc. At anytime, you can store a desired station as a preset channel on your GoGear player. With 20 preset radio stations that can be stored, you can quickly access your favorite radio station without having to manually tune the frequencies each time.

1.5" Full color display for easy navigation and album art

1.5" full color screen allows you to navigate easily within the control menu or the music files of your GoGear player. Plus, you can flip through your photo collection while enjoying your music on the go.

Up to 25-hour music or 4-hour video playback

Forget about the hassle of having to recharge your GoGear player battery constantly. This longlasting player allows you to savor your favorite tunes for up to a whopping 25 hours of continuous music playback or up to 4 hours of video playback – all on a single charge. Now you can sit back and listen to music all day long or watch the equivalent of 2 movies back-to-back wherever you go.

Small and wearable for ultimate portability

For the ultimate in music portability, this Philips GoGear player is ready for wear and ready to go. The lightweight and ultra compact device gives you superior sound quality and a true portable entertainment experience on the move.

Voice recording to take notes or record anything, anytime

Voice recording converts your GoGear player into a handy dictation machine. Besides playing music or listening to radio, you can also record notes or reminders for work or school, record shopping lists and phone numbers – even song lyrics. By pressing the recording button and speaking into the built-in microphone, voice messages are compressed and stored in the built-in internal memory. Voice recording gives you a highly portable voice recorder allowing you to record anything, anytime and anywhere!

Direct charging from PC via USB

Charge your GoGear player battery quickly and easily from your PC via USB. By connecting your player to your PC with the cable provided and following the necessary prompts, your PC will provide the power for charging your player within a few seconds. Enjoy the convenience of doing away with a separate recharger.

Folder view to organize and view media files like on your PC

Folder view is an optional directory view of the GoGear player that lets you view all the files on your player as if it were a computer. Once you select Folder view, opening any supported file (i.e. music, pictures or videos) is as easy as selecting the file and hitting Play.

Easy video downloads from the Internet to your GoGear

View videos on the go with Internet Video Download, an easy-to-use feature that lets you download videos from video sharing sites (YouTube, MySpace or Google Video) to your GoGear. Install the PC application provided, connect your GoGear to your PC and use Internet Explorer to visit your favorite video sharing site. Choose a video and click the Download button that appears when you hover the mouse cursor over the video. No need to wait, just move on to other videos and start downloading more.

Easy and intuitive user interface with album art display

GoGear’s easy and intuitive user interface is powered by an advanced navigation technology. It not only helps to ensure quick and smooth navigation but also an enjoyable multimedia experience that doesn’t take long to master. Smart features like Album Art – which displays album artwork embedded in music files – enables you to have a richer experience, just like in the good old days when you would view the cover of a CD or LP while enjoying your music.
