FM radio with RDS/ 20 presets

FM radio with RDS and 20 presets for more music options

RDS (Radio Data System) is a communications protocol standard that allows digital information to be transmitted over FM radio broadcasts. RDS-enabled FM radio receivers can display this useful information that includes station identity, program details and song title and artist, etc. At anytime, you can store a desired station as a preset channel on your GoGear player. With 20 preset radio stations that can be stored, you can quickly access your favorite radio station without having to manually tune the frequencies each time.

Fullsound™ to bring your MP3 music to life

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. Rediscover your compressed MP3 music in true-to-life sound that will touch your soul and move your feet.

Philips Songbird

Philips Songbird: one simple program to discover, play, sync

One simple, easy-to-use program that comes with your GoGear player, Philips Songbird lets you discover and play all your media, and sync it seamlessly with your Philips GoGear. Its intuitive and powerful music management features let you discover new artists and music styles directly in the program through music and media stores, services and websites. Play your own library and media from the internet and seamlessly sync all of it from your PC to your Philips GoGear.

Sound Isolation headphones to minimize environmental noise

With sound isolation headphones, you will hear greater music details at a lower volume than is possible with normal headphones. Based on thorough understanding of the human ear canal anatomy, the sound isolation headphone's angled acoustic design creates a perfect seal between the ambient sound source & the ear canal, thus eliminating unwanted background noise while delivering sound directly to your ears. Even at a moderate volume setting, you can still discern music details without noise distractions from the environment. Earphone sleeves are available in three sizes to provide the best fit.

Surround for movies

Surround for movies to put you in the middle of the action

Surround for movies is an advanced audio technology that directly analyzes each sound source in a movie or video soundtrack to recreate a natural soundstage with sound elements that are individually and precisely localized. The processed sound elements are then directly delivered to each ear via in-ear headphones. Surround for movies generates a natural acoustical space based on the actual content of the soundtrack. The result puts the listener right in the middle of the action for an immersive surround experience - just as the film's sound engineer had intended.

Touch-screen control for smooth and intuitive navigation

Feel the smooth and intuitive control of your GoGear portable player with the soft touch of your fingertips. Its intuitive touch-screen interface makes navigation a real breeze, whether you are controling music playback functions, browsing your video and picture collections or choosing radio channels. Just click directly on the player's screen to navigate swiftly through menus and flip through your folders. Now that's what we call sensible and simple.
