A Good Sounding MP3 Player

Summary: The Philips MP3 Player sounds great. I love the touch screen. The functions and display are fairly intuitive and logical. The earphones provided sound very good. The built in speaker is very small however works good at close distance. 8GB is plenty of space for my music and photos. If you need more storage space the micro SD slot can be utilized to increase storage capacity. Settings include a sleep timer and the player can be also used as a sound recorder.
This is the second one of these that I've purchased!

Summary: Loved the first one I bought for myself. Hubby had an iPod (he hated it!) I gave him my an older Philips mp3 player I had years ago. He wore that dang thang out! Let him listen to my GoGear Muse 8 for a couple of days, and had a hard time getting it back from him. The sound is wonderful. Great range. Easy to load, operate. Saw this one in Amazon, and bought it quick before someone else got it! He loves that I gave him a brand new one, and not a hand-me-down.
Summary: I bought this because of its navigation system and returned it also because of it. The screen is too small to touch to start with. Click responses are not reliable, some never works. Would be a great product if the navigation works as it is supposed to.
A very good Mp3 player with great sound and options

Summary: The first thing that I like about this mp3 player is that I need no third party software to place my songs on it. No tedious interfaces. I just use my windows Explorer. There is software that on it for that, you can install, if you must. When you connect it to your laptop it offers you two options "Charge and Transfer" or "Charge and Play". It has a micro-SD slot that you can use to expand it's capacity, which proves quite handy.
Summary: The Muse has great sound quaility and the build quality is very good too. Returned this unit due to user interface (UI) issues. Over a two week time span have found that the provided songbird software does not load properly on 64-bit systems. The unit also re-arranged a lot of albums (putting songs in different order) that were loaded onto it. Touchscreen controls are decent but the UI is lacking enough that made me not want to use it.
Summary: Update 4:23:13 - I just took a ride on my motorcycle and I had to add a star to my review because of the headphones. Going 75+ mph (that's Cat 1 hurricane wind speed)with the volume on 20 (max 31) and could hear the music just fine. All my other ear-buds turn into glorified ear plugs at this speed. Pros: Great Sound! errr, that's about it for the pros...but again I will say that it does have amazing sound! Even the sound of the built in speaker is more than you'd expect.
Summary: Both audio and video quality are very good. The earphone jack is temperamental - I sometimes have to jiggle it around to hear in stereo. The unit has a solid, quality feel to it. I've used it for a long time now and it's still my chosen method of portable music. My one strong objection is the touch screen. I just can't get the hang of it. I stroke, touch and poke, trying to get the right response, and it's all very hit and miss. I get where I want to go - eventually.
Summary: I am amazed on all of the capabilities that this unit offers. If you ever decide to use it for movies, pictures, audio-books, text reader, FM Radio, recording sounds, it can do it all. Oh yeah, and it plays music too, lol. There is a demo of a video in the M3 Player. It is of an Indy car race. OMG it sounds amazing and plays in crisp Hi-Def on the LCD screen. Pretty Impressive!!!
Summary: Got this as a deal of the day and love it. Love the touch screen and seems to respond really well. Excited that it can be expanded. Only complaint is that everytime I turn it off and then on the volume resets itself.
