FullSound™ to bring a CD listening experience to MP3
Philips' innovative FullSound technology faithfully restores sonic details to compressed MP3 music, dramatically enriching and enhancing it, so you can experience CD music without any distortion. Based on an audio post-processing algorithm, FullSound combines Philips' renowned expertise in music reproduction with the power of the latest generation Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The result is fuller bass with more depth and impact, boosted voice and instrument clarity, and rich detail. Rediscover your compressed MP3 music in true-to-life sound that will touch your soul and move your feet.

Shuffle to mix up your songs and be surprised everytime
A "shuffle-and-play" function gets rid of the boredom of hearing your music played in the same order all the time. After loading your favourite songs to the GoGear player from your own music library, all you have to do is to press the "shuffle" button for your tunes to be played in a random order. Feel recharged by a different and unique music experience every time you hook up to your GoGear player while on the move.

3.0 out of 5 stars Philips GoGear SA0181 9 Oct 2010
I need an MP3 player for running, and on the face of it, this little player fits the bill - the design is very smart with the integrated clip, and its easy to pause / unpause whilst you are running - good for when you have to cross roads etc. The side buttons are a bit fiddly but thats inevitable given the player's size, and after a few runs you learn your way around them.

So why only 3 stars? The main problem is charging - I had a zen stone before, and one charge would last me at least 2 weeks - however this needs recharging after every run! Also the radio autotuner is very unreliable. A minor point is that the case scratches easily, - not bothered about that.

Overall a very good play if only you didnt need to keep recharging it all the time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work! 1 Oct 2011
Same as previously mentioned by another reviewer, it will not turn on! I have loaded all my music on, the light on the mp3 player lights up when it's plugged into my computer, so it is not broken, but it won't work as soon as I need to use it. I have charged it overnight and all day, and it just won't work. Very, very easy to load music on, great size and I'm sure it would be perfect for running etc. Would be brilliant, as it's a great size and style, and easy to use... until I need to turn it on! Think I'll just pay the extra tenner for an i-pod shuffle!
