Summary: I bought this as a replacement for a Philips GoGear Vibe 4GB mp3 player I had bought before. This model (which has the same name) has no bass response. I used the same music, the same EQ settings, and the same earbuds and there is no detectable bass.
Summary: I got this for my wife and she loves it. The great sound, the compatibility with 7 makes it a good buy and a great performer. However, the software that comes with it is difficult to use and even locked up my computer. The instructions are for techies and just didn't work.
Summary: This is an excellent MP3 for listening to books. Most people buy them for music but my husband listens to audio books on them and I prefer them to any other MP3 player. They are easy to operate and I can see the screen. We are older and most of the screens are too small for us to see.
Summary: I only use this for music and it works well enough for my simple needs. There's enough capacity for lots of songs and podcasts. I like the fact I can adjust the equalizer too. The screen is small but so it the price.
Summary: I use mine solely for audiobooks that I rent from the library. It does require a little manual work to get it to work best, but it's worth it. After I download the audiobooks, I cut and paste them into the Audible file under Services.
Summary: I have owned this player four just over months, and I have had zero problems with performance. The only adjustments that need to be made are to the equalizer to maximize sound performance for different albums or genres, but you will likely find one or two that you like fairly quickly ans stick with...
Summary: I bought two and only used them for mp3 music playback. No problem for first three months. Then both players sound levels locked at 15% of max, a very low level. I'm use to updating and fixing simple tech bugs but found the Philips website, Songbird and control panels to be useless.
Summary: My wife listens to her music on this working nights in the warehouse. Sound quality is great and its size is just right for the arm band holder. Its easy to download music on works well with windows media player.
