FullSound Technology FullSound Technology Restores Rich Detail to MP3 Music
Using Philips' innovative FullSound technology, the GoGear Muse allows you to experience distortion-free, CD-quality audio. Combining Philips' expertise in music reproduction with the latest Digital Signal Processor (DSP), FullSound restores details to compressed MP3 music files for an enhanced listening experience that includes rich, full bass, and improved clarity on both vocal and instrumental tracks.

High Definition Video Playback and Output
A 3.2-inch HVGA touch-screen color display makes it easy to enjoy videos anywhere, while surround sound for movies puts you in the middle of the action. You can share your favorite flicks and clips with friends using the HDMI output, which makes it easy to watch the High Definition (720p) video that's stored on your Muse--simply plug into an HDTV and play (HDMI cable sold separately). The Muse also offers slide-show playback of photo files, making your favorite albums portable.

FM Radio FM radio with RDS and 20 presets
Unlike many one-trick MP3 players, the Muse gives you access to FM radio, so you can catch the news, get traffic updates, and keep up with tunes that you haven't downloaded yet. The FM radio receiver is RDS-enabled, so it can pick up and display information about what you're listening to, including program details, song titles, and artist names. And the Muse lets you dial in 20 preset radio stations--you'll spend less time searching for signals, and more time listening.

Built-in Microphone Built-in Microphone Convenient for Note Taking
When you wish to capture and replay your own audio or simply take notes, the Muse includes a built-in microphone that allows you to record audio files in MP3 format.

16 GB Memory and microSD Slot for Memory Expansion
The 16 GB Muse holds up to 3600 songs, 4000 photos, or 64 hours of video. It also features a microSD card slot that allows you to expand the player's memory capacity up to an additional 32 GB to accommodate your growing media library (microSD cards sold separately).

Intuitive Touch-Screen Controls
Whether you're skipping through tunes, browsing video selections, or organizing photos, the Muse's intuitive touch-screen interface makes navigation easy. Simply touch the player's screen to navigate files, folders, and playlists.

Sound-Isolation, High-Definition Headphones
The included headphones offer exceptional sound isolation for uninterrupted listening. Whether you're walking down a windy street or riding crowded public transportation, the sound isolation earphones minimize environmental noise, even at low volume levels.

Designed to match the curvature of your ear canals, these ergonomic headphones come with three interchangeable ear caps to ensure a secure, comfortable fit.

Extended Battery Life
The Muse features an extensive battery life. A single charge offers up to 24 hours of audio playback or 5 hours of video playback, and a convenient low-battery indicator lets you know when it's time to recharge.

The Philips GoGear is a nice AV player that doesn't hurt your pocket too much.
First of all, it has a great sound quality. The Philips FullSound technology enriches the sound and the earphones that come with the player are great (I have AKG K330 earphones which are great, and I now use the Philips earphones).
Video quality is good - screen view is crispy. the only bad thing is that you can hardly see it in direct sun light. The player has HDMI exit which I haven't tried yet.
Lets talk about the player's interface: I bought this player after having Microsoft Zune 120 for a year (it dies after a year of moderate use... Microsoft). The Zune had a great intuitive interface. I can't say this about the GoGear. In Philips' player you can't choose songs by their genre and you can't add songs to "now playing" playlist.
One more thing is that if you set the volume limit, you can't cancel it while listening to the radio. You have to go back to "Music" and cancel it.
The touch screen is the player's weakest link. Although it supposed to be capacitive it has poor and inaccurate response. Scrolling to 'Z' in song names or artists names is really frustrating.
The software that comes with the player is Philips Songbird. After using Microsoft Zune software I understand how poor looking is the software - and hence, much less intuitive. One thing that annoyed me is that although while installing the software I didn't want the software to update media info from the Internet - as soon as I added my libraries to the software it started to chance the organization and the ID3 tags of the files. As soon as I understood that I started using Windows Media Player as my media organizer.
Radio - I has a nice feature in which it auto tunes the presets. It also has RDS.

Having managed to lose my MP3 player (Creative), I was again in the market for one. I saw myself in the sad situation of having to change brands, since Creative no longer seems to be delivering the fantastic players they were once famous for. So it was back to the drawing board and loads of research. To my surprise I ended up choosing Philips because both the specs and user reviews indicated it was what I was looking for, and the price was right.

First reaction: what a beautiful, solid and hefty player the 16GB Muse is! There is nothing to criticize in its design, it's that sleek and eye-pleasing. I like it that it's not one of those plasticky products that feel cheap; I also like that it's not black, because it may make it more difficult for me to lose it... The big screen's quality is superb and the essential buttons (on / off, volume up / down, home) are on the Muse's sides. A microSD port, holding up to a 32GB card -- great expansion! --, and an HDMI plug are located in the bottom. However, this kind of build comes at a price: definitely not the lightest player I've ever handled, and a bit thicker than what I'm used to. No deal breakers here.

Setting it up wasn't a problem, although you do need a magnifying glass to read the quick-start guide (you're better off loading the whole guide that comes in the player, or downloading a copy from Philips.com). I'm not used to touchscreens but am having no trouble with this one. It's responsive and accurate, in no way hindering my navigation. The menus are pretty straightforward and intuitive.

The Songbird software is another matter entirely. I did have some issues with it initially -- perhaps due to years using Creative's software -- until I figured it out.

Pros:
Sleek silver(not plastic) design and good noise canceling earbuds.
Large, responsive touchscreen display
Great sound quality, Fullsound for music and Surround for movies. useful EQ presets
SD expansion card slot and HDMI output
Compatible with subscription services and supports many formats including loss less formats
Songbird software is OK. You can import your i-tunes library with ease...but you don't have to use Songbird.
Supports audio books including bookmarks, and has decent text reader and sound recorder.
Folder view

Cons:
Slightly heavy, very short usb cable
No Wifi
FM radio signal is hit or miss
Touchscreen menus are less intuitive than I would like. The most often used icons are very small
Playlists created in songbird sometimes don't sync properly to the device.

Philips Muse looks good and has high sound quality and a smart design that feels solid.
It lacks the features of Ipod touch and newer android based PMP(Portable Media Players) but it's also about 100-200 dollars cheaper. If you don't need wifi and you use your device primarily for music the Philips Muse is hard to beat.

I'm 17 years old and don't have any money to waste. One of my best friends was going to be turning 16 and that's a pretty big deal. I remember her saying that she wanted a mp3 player and I figured it would be really cool of her "bestie" to get it for her. I did a whole lot of browsing and wanted to find something perfect since I'm a bit of an mp3 geek and I came across the Phillips Gogear Muse. The reviews ranged from positive to mixed with a couple negatives. After weeks of going all around the web, reading reviews from critics and consumers and even watching video reviews, I decided to take a chance and buy this player.
It came way before delivery estimate (took about 2-3 days with free super saving shipping). Since I also had to put all the music she wanted on to it, I was able to open it up. It's a very stylish and sleek. It's thick enough to have a firm grip(unlike iPod touch) but thin enough to not appear beefy or unappealing. I turned it on and was wowed by the bright display on the 3.2 inch screen. The touch screen isn't as smooth as the iPod's. You have to apply a slight amount of pressure but it's not as bad as some people are making it out to be. I'd say the touch screen feature gets 3.5/5 stars. Flipping through pictures was especially nice and I wasn't expecting the screen to be so nice.
There is absolutely no reason to feel the need to use the phillips songbird software unless you're trying to add playlist. I just used Windows Media Player which works great. After loading a couple songs (which didn't take long at all) I decided to test out the sound. The sound isolation headphones are better than the ones that come with the iPod. These seem like higher quality headphones that wouldn't normally come with a player and you'd have to buy separately.
