In My Own Words:
Child of the 70s as Im in my 50s now. As a genre I love Scottish pop music - from the Poets to the Pearlfishers. I love powerpop, 70s prog alt counry and old fashioned funk. Current bands to love are Aberfeldy and the Boy Who Trapped the Sun

I would have put this up as a comment but given the erroneous nature of one star reviews I feel I need to answer them as a review


All music players have controls on the front -so this comment would apply to all players on Amazon ! Is in fact what you are saying - are the controls too easy to change?

Far better than Sony Apple and indeed other Philips devices I have owned . I am partially deaf in one ear and have a moderate hearing loss in the other . I never turn my Go Gear up… Read more
