    • A. No it does not but you can purchase an armband or waist band generic holder that will work. We purchased a foam armband holder and it works great. You just slip the player down into the holder and it stays put.

    Can you load and play songs on here without having to use the software?
    by richdaddy65 4/25/2012

    • A. When you plug the player into the USB port on your computer the first time, the player automaticlly installs the software to your computer. Then you are asked if you want it to get all the songs on your hard drive or you can find them yourself.

    • A. Hello. Yes. I use Windows Explorer to load my GoGear VIBE all the time. In fact, I never use Songbird. I just move the music files to music folder and the video files to the video folder. A primary reason I like the GoGear VIBE is the ability to manual place music and video on the player. I included a pic of windows explorer on my machine.

    I just bought my second Go Gear MP3 player because I like the ease with which it interfaces with Audible.com and because it has a great FM radio. I like to switch from radio to books as I please. This model makes it super easy once you realize audio books are in the music section and the radio is in it's own section, very easy. This model also has a stronger receiver than my last Go Gear did. I have not used the video yet. It is not my thing, although I am hoping to put my wedding video on it for some happy time. I think an MP3 player without a radio is a complete waste of money. I have had the Classic Ipod. It was OK, but no radio. Got rid of it. I think Philips products are completely under-rated. They are light weight, functional, small, and great sounding. The price is also good news. Thank you, Philip's for making such a great product.

    I bought this for use at work. I work 12 hour shifts running a CNC Lathe - that gets really boring if all you have to listen to are the voices in your head. This holds a lot of music. I've loaded over 100 cd's onto this and have only used up half its memory. They were not kidding about the battery life either. I listen to it through the entire 12 hour shift and still have 3/4 of juice left on it. I also listen to it while I mow my lawn - gotta crank it up for that though. The one small thing that bugs me about it is the playlists. There are only 3 of them and each one only holds 120 songs. I like a lot of different kinds of music and trying to create a playlist with a little of everything is hard to do. Not a huge problem though - I can deal. Overall, I wished I had bought this months ago and would definitely recommend this to anyone.

    I bought this unit based on price and appearance. My son likes his 2Gb unit I bought him a year ago, so I decided to go with this unit for myself. The unit looks like other brands that cost 50% more. You can select the background color for the display to suit your personality; blue, green, grey, pink or red. Easy to navigate through the screens to set various features. Numerous graphic equalizer standard settings and one that you customize. The earplugs have a soft rubber coating and are reasonably comfortable with excellent sound quality. I expected to have to replace them immediately. I was wrong. The software that comes with the unit is a combination of a music player and internet explorer. It syncs the unit and updates the software of the device upon connection. Excellent product for the price.

    I was asking for an apple ipod for Christmas but instead i got this. At first glance I thought'd it'd be pretty trashy but i found out otherwise. I go skiing with this mp3 player every week and its performed excellently. The battery life is phenomenal. I went one day and had it on for 7 hours straight without so much as a pause and the battery still showed more than 3/4 power and worked fine all the next day without a recharge. Its simple to use and transfer music and the layout is basic but comfortable. The screen size not as tall as a ipod nano's but i think it is a good bit wider. The radio is nothing to amazing but i can still get signal all over the place. And for so cheap of a price this is a great buy. I DEFENITLY RECOMMEND THIS MP3 PLAYER.

    This MP3 player was purchased mainly to play high quality FLAC files through my home stereo. It does have the ability to do this, but I noticed that several songs in an album were not playing. The device would say unknown format or something and they would be skipped. I've since realized that it can only play FLACs with lower sample rates. Perhaps this limitation is a failure of the FLAC format to have consistently playable files by most FLAC-enabled devices, or maybe it is a Philips-imposed limitation. Either way, FLAC will not succeed if devices claiming to be able to play them can't play them all. I download free FLACs directly from band sites or net labels that do not charge for them, or ask merely for a small donation. The idea was to have a totally silent source device (quieter than a tape deck or CD player) that would play high quality digital files through my well-spec'd stereo. This has been achieved to some degree, but not to the level I'd hoped. Read the specs first if you're looking for a good FLAC player.
