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.
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 and 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.
Now you can enjoy your music freely and fully without worrying about the risk of hearing damage. Created by Philips, SafeSound consistently analyses the sound level on your Philips GoGear MP3 player and alerts you if the volume and exposure could have a possible impact on your long-term hearing. You can take action by adjusting the volume to a lower level or allow SafeSound to automatically regulate the volume for you — no need to fiddle with any settings. In addition, SafeSound provides daily and weekly overviews of your sound exposure so you can take better charge of your hearing health.
Surround for movies is an advanced audio technology that directly analyses each sound source in a movie or video soundtrack to recreate a natural soundstage with sound elements that are individually and precisely localised. 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.
Small is beautiful when it comes to mobile devices, but not memory capacities. With the GoGear player, you can have the best of both worlds just by plugging in a microSD card. The microSD card will show up as a second removable drive when the player is connected to your PC for easy file transfer. Just load your card with the desired content and slot it into your player. You can purchase memory cards of up to 32 GB to expand your GoGear memory capacity, so you never have to worry about running out of entertainment choices.
