The music didn’t sound tinny and the Go Gear actually does a good job pumping tunes.
Video Playback: Video playback on the Go Gear Vibe is more of a bonus novelty than a serious feature.The video clips that play back on the Go Gear are low in resolution and quality, so video playback is best suited for the occasional quick clip but not for serious viewing.Had a real bad panic attack today while charging my Philips Go Gear Mp3 Player. :)After a quick google search I found that we do a soft reset by pressing the power button and volume up ( ) button together. So I decided to do a hard reset by pressing the reset button (its a small hole next to usb connection socket) with a safety pin. Philips releases firmware updates for Go Gear MP3 players to correct software issues and add features not included in previous firmware versions.The Philips Songbird multimedia software, which is used for transferring and organizing files on the Go Gear, is used to update the firmware.
Songbird detects the current firmware on the device, checks for updates and then downloads and installs the updates on the media player.I was able to make a playlist simply by clicking and dragging.The Go Gear Vibe automatically took all the artists in my library and separated them by artist and then followed by album on the device.Its body is small with curved edges so the ease of portability is there, but unfortunately the quality of the operational buttons are a bit stiff.You can also hear a bit of clicking noise when you press on the buttons.I used it every morning for 1 hour in the gym and it lasted 7 days without having to recharge.
