Like most Philips MP3 players (we'll make an exception for the Spark), the Vibe is a case study in nondescript design. It's about as thick as an Oreo cookie (0.25 inch), with a 1.5-inch width and 2.5 inch height that can easily be palmed in your hand or slipped in your pocket.

The bottom of the Vibe is riddled with openings for a mini USB connection, 3.5mm headphone jack, lanyard loop (lanyard not included), and a pinhole microphone for the voice recorder.
