Enjoy digital music in a compressed format without losing any sound quality. The Muse supports FLAC and APE formats, which are files that have been reduced without losing audio depth. The richness and clarity of the original music source are retained for complete enjoyment wherever you go.
Sound isolation headphones let you hear greater music detail at a lower volume than is possible with normal headphones. These headphones have an angled acoustic design that creates a perfect seal between the ambient sound source and the ear canal, thus eliminating unwanted background noise while delivering sound directly to your ears. Even at a moderate volume setting, you can still discern music detail without noise distractions from the environment. Earphone sleeves are available in three sizes to provide the best fit.
The Muse uses Philips' FullSound technology so you can experience CD music without any distortion. Based on an audio post-processing algorithm, FullSound combines Philips' 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.
Surround for movies is an advanced audio technology that recreates a natural soundstage with sound elements both individually and precisely localized. The processed sound elements are then directly delivered to each ear via in-ear headphones. The result puts the listener right in the middle of the action for an immersive surround experience.

That said, I wanted an mp3 with an external card.
Did not try the movie, but for the music and the radio, not problem. Recorder is not bad either.
It's nice to have pictures because the screen is quite nice.
Touchscreen is nice as well.
Sound is great with the headset from the box.
Batteries last a long time compared to an iPod.
I can play all day long and still have more for a few days of listening. That's great because I can move around without being plugged in and get the earphones pulled out of my ears when I get up and forget it's plugged in...
I put it in my front pocket and enjoy it without problems.
It's got all that I need for a great price.
before it froze after unboxing! can you imagine? I have reset the device, work for another
3 minutes and froze unresponsive again...So far Philips products were on top on my list
in regards of relibility, functionality and design but this is really big disappointment.
errr, that's about it for the pros...but again I will say that it does have amazing sound! Even the sound of the built in speaker is more than you'd expect.
Songbird - Very Buggy, crashes all the time and error reports throughout.
- Don't even install it if you get this player. Just drag and drop with windows
- When it is working it still is not communicating with the device properly (needs firmware update see below)
- Tried using WMP with this device and was not able to create or add to existing playlist
Firmware Update - Installation crashes about 95% through, Then device crashes, then windows crashes when you disconnect. The funny thing is that I bet Songbird would possibly work better if I were able to update the firmware.
The price and great sound make this worthy of a 5 star review. I started to put a 5 but the reality is that Philips is a HUGE company with some major $$$ resources so there is NO EXCUSE for sending out a device with this junk software on it that is going to make a lot of people aggravated with their purchase and waste a lot of their time figuring it out.
If you buy it don't let songbird install on your system. You can drag and drop from windows but there will be some error messages from time to time that would most likely be fixed with a good old fashioned Firmware update.
