Philips KEY003


While we think the premise behind Philips' wearable digital audio line is great, it is poorly executed. We do not think an LCD, or a bunch of controls are necessary, but as it stands we are lost in the dark while using this player. There is no power...

Looks good ; works well as a USB thumbdrive

No LCD display ; minimal controls ; mediocre sound quality ; expensive

This 64MB music player ultimately achieves its goals, but sacrifices some pretty basic functions in the process.

True about lacking of power indicator – that sucks. I am also a little afraid of breaking the controller, it looks very fragile. Otherwise great product, a piece of electronic jewlery.

If you want more controls, then you need to attach the inline remote which means you will have an external cable in addition to the neck strap hanging down. ”
