Philips GoGear Muse PMP

 

Philips as a brand has been known for producing good audio/visual products for quite some years and in recent times their GoGear players have given food for thought for music enthusiasts and critics alike. The latest GoGear Muse has hit the market and...

To sum it up, the whole experience was bittersweet. Though I’d like to say more bitter than sweet. The screen as mentioned earlier was THE biggest issue. The rest of the features worked out fine but the player is meant to provide a good experience...

Philips GoGear Muse 16GB review

 

In terms of performance this Philips is perfectly adequate, but there are much better choices out there – without even including Apple

Nice looks and solid build ; (mini) HDMI output ; very good software

Lacks audio and video sparkle ; operation isn’t as slick as it could be

Though fine in many ways, the Muse isn’t the best portable media player, even if you take Apple out of the equation

Philips GoGear Muse review

 

The Philips GoGear Muse is an exceptionally smart-looking portable music and video player. It has a big, sharp touchscreen display and a beautiful brushed-metal chassis that fits neatly into a pocket.

The Philips GoGear Muse is a stunning piece of engineering that feels bombproof. It’s also multitalented, offering decent-quality audio, video, a radio and voice recording. However, navigation can be frustrating.

Philips GoGear Muse review

 

It's larger then your average MP3 player, and there are a few foibles for sure, but we really like this classy design from Philips

Bigger screen than rivals ; extensive file compatibility ; plays iPlayer downloads ; simple, smooth interface ; good performance

Landscape design and button layout won’t be for everyone ; awkward headphone jack connection

A classy entrant from Philips with plenty of appeal – once you get past a few foibles

Philips GoGear Muse 16GB review

 

Philips' GoGear Muse looks and feels classier than older models thanks to its brushed metal back. The right-handed design is unchanged, which will put off left-handed users.

It isn't cheap, but Philips' GoGear Muse is an excellent MP3 player with great image quality and good video support.

Philips GoGear Muse 16GB review

 

Philips is hoping its Muse can make up for its lack of touchscreen with noise-cancelling nous and video vim

A solid media player with wide format support, but the noise-cancelling and controls disappoint

Philips GoGear Muse 8GB

 

This Philips GoGear will impress those who crave for good sound quality but it's hard to fall in love with its touch controls.

Very good sound ; Wide file format support ; 720p HD video playback with HDMI-out

Unresponsive touchscreen ; Sluggish interface ; Works only in landscape mode ; Slightly overpriced

This PMP scores high on sound, build quality and file format support. It plays 720p HD video with HDMI-out option to to let you connect to your HDTV. But, its sluggish touch controls spoiled the whole user experience and you can get a better...

Apart from it offers FM radio playback and recording function that also allows up to 20 preset programmes. The green specification of being a lead-free soldered product is an added pride for this product.

Philips GoGear Muse

 

Don't let the slightly conservative design detract from a very capable device that offers decent value for money.

There is a lot to like about the Muse. Format support is excellent, as is the player's ability to handle video above the screens native resolution. The bundled noise cancelling earphones will hold obvious appeal to anyone who regularly uses their music...
