How long will the battery last on this MP3 player?
This Philips MP3 player has a long lasting battery that will last up to 20 hours on continuous audio playback and up to four hours of video playback. This gives you plenty of time to enjoy your music on long journeys. With the MP3 player also having a standard USB plug for charging, you are able to charge this device with any normal USB plug to keep topped up while you are away.

What does the Fullsound technology do?
Philips' innovative FullSound technology faithfully restores sonic details to compressed MP3 music, dramatically enriching and enhancing it, so you can experience CD music without any distortion. Based on an audio post-processing algorithm, FullSound combines Philips' renowned 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.

What does SafeSound do?
SafeSound consistently analyses the sound level on your Philips MP3 player and alerts you if the volume and exposure could have a possible impact on your long-term hearing. You can take action by adjusting the volume to a lower level or allow SafeSound to automatically regulate the volume for you — no need to fiddle with any settings. In addition, SafeSound provides daily and weekly overviews of your sound exposure so you can take better charge of your hearing health.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Philips Vibe 8Gb I bought this having been frustrated by Apple and iTunes. It's easy to use and took my entire music collection. File transfer is easy, just like using a pen drive. Earphone quality is a bit naff but I didn't but it for the earphones, when using my own Sony 'phones, the sound quality is good. I haven't needed to use the graphic equaliser. Good value for meney
