MP3 and WMA playback
Audio compression technology allows large digital music files to be reduced up to 10 times in size without radically degrading their audio quality. MP3 or WMA are two of the compression formats that let you enjoy a world of digital music on your GoGear player. Download MP3 or WMA songs from authorised music sites on the Internet or create your own MP3 or WMA music files by ripping your audio CDs and transferring them onto your player.
Equalizer to suit your music preferences
GoGear Players with Equalizer, utilise technology to automatically set the optimum sound frequency balance for a chosen music style. Whether it is Jazz, Rock or Pop that you are listening to, using the Equalizer preset setting allows you to enjoy the optimum sound for that music style.
Voice recording to take notes or record anything, anytime
Voice recording converts your GoGear player into a handy dictation machine. Besides playing music, 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.

Top customer reviews
First of all, do not make the mistake of expecting the screen to look like it does in the advertised image, with blue text. It is not blue - it is the usual white. But this is a purely aesthetic thing and does not impact on the quality which is very good.
When you first get this it will be almost fully charged but you will still need to plug it into the PC USB slot to charge it but more importantly to install the device manager to update the firmware to version 1.21. You have to push out the USB connection and insert it into the USB slot on your PC to charge, you will be presented with two options: 'Charge Only' or 'Charge and Play' - I have never seen this before and thought it was a great idea. please also remember that the USB connection does not have to go all the way in! When it is retracted the end of the USB slider seals the opening making it dust-proof.
If you want to put 3.5GB of music onto it, it's a simple matter of dragging and dropping from Windows Explorer, then you can go off and make yourself some food as it will take about 15 minutes (or more) to finish the job!
Once done however then the fun starts. Do not use the supplied headphones they are awful, I use the Koss KSC75 Headphones , which are much better and do not cost the earth. I was not prepared to spend preposterous amounts of money for headphones either. I liked the reviews I read on these from people who actually bought these so I opted for them and I am really glad I did.
It is easy to use, has animated menus and as long as the MP3 files are correctly numbered will show them in the correct order, even in folder view. The sound quality is better than the GoGear Raga and although the preset equalizer settings are not as good or as clear as the Raga the custom one is much better. Bass response of this unit is great, it can also go very loud if you want it to.
The screen can be reversed 180 degrees (probably for left-handed users) and you can even to have it blue and white instead of black and white.
YES! HALLELUJAH! It does resume a song from where you left it - it was the first thing I tried when I got my stuff on it. I turned it off half way through a song and over an hour later turned it back on and voila, played from where I left it. The GoGear Raga does not do this...at least mine never did. It has a nice `now playing' icon, so that you can effortlessly mess about with the options and look around your music and then simply get back to your current song at the touch of a button.
All in all I am very happy with this little MP3 Player. There is only one real negative as far as I am concerned - the headphone socket comes out of the side, it makes for a slightly cumbersome fit into a pocket, it would have been a much better idea to have it come from the top edge of the player. I also think the supplied headphones should be a lot better for those who do not have any of their own and the preset equalizer settings should be sharper and more defined. It is for these reasons I have knocked one star off the rating. If I can live with these things then so can you. I am glad I chose this one.
Firstly, nice design, the usual light plastics but well finished and detailed with a surprisingly nice screen. As someone pointed out, side-placed 'phone socket perhaps not ideal though.
Onto the features other players miss. (A) The shuffle function works, unlike a remarkable number of modern players such as my otherwise very good Sony! (B) You can play from folders rather than only from ID tags (artists / albums / songs) - unlike my otherwise good Sansa (though that developed a fault anyway). This is great if you have lots of bootleg material or simply want to create your own compilations other than via playlists, which I do. (C) You can shuffle & play WITHIN those folders. You can also reset the shuffle without turning the player off. (D) As pointed out elsewhere, it has auto-resume from where you left it when powering off (unlike my Archos 1 Vision, which also had an infuriating power-off which often didn't work.)
Sound is great with decent headphones, not deafeningly loud but they never are these days - probably due to stupid European legislation; sometimes selecting a far-Eastern country as 'regional setting' or 'language' can help but I've not tried yet. First play was in the gym, subsequently in town and even on the tube it seemed plenty loud enough.
Anything missing? Well, going back to the folder-play options, one thing I don't think you can do is play all or shuffle-play all songs from a 'holding' folder if the songs are in subfolders. It's no big deal but one or two of my old HDD players allowed this.
Overall this is just what I was after and I am really impressed with Philips for making a low-priced player of this quality, and for taking the time to get the software and operating system right.
I would not recommend this it is obviously for certain usb ports, of which I and my friends/family between us have not found a port it fits!!
