    Play back MP3, WMA or DRM music from subscription services

    Your GoGear player supports the latest Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology from Microsoft that enables it to recognise and play back music purchased or subscribed from online audio services using the same technology. Or create your own MP3 or WMA music files by ripping your audio CDs and transferring them onto your player to savour the vast universe of digital music available.

    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.

    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 useful information including station identity, programme details and song title and artist etc. You can store a desired station as a preset channel on your GoGear player at any time. With the ability to store 20 preset radio stations, you can quickly access your favourite radio station without having to tune the frequencies manually each time.

    GoGear's easy and intuitive user interface is powered by advanced navigation technology. It not only helps to ensure quick and smooth navigation but also an enjoyable multimedia experience that doesn't take long to master. Smart features like Album Art—which displays album artwork embedded in music files—enables you to have a richer experience, just like in the good old days when you would view the cover of a CD or LP while enjoying your music.

    Voice recording to take notes or record anything, anytime

    Voice recording converts your GoGear player into a handy dictation machine. Besides playing music or listening to the radio, you can also record notes or reminders for work or school, record shopping lists and phone numbers – even song lyrics. By pressing the recording button and speaking into the built-in microphone, voice messages are compressed and stored in the built-in internal memory. Voice recording gives you a highly portable voice recorder allowing you to record anything, anytime and anywhere!

  • Sound Isolation headphones to minimise environmental noise

    Sound Isolation headphones to minimise environmental noise

    With sound isolation, you will hear and enjoy greater music details at a lower volume than is possible with normal headphones. Based on a thorough understanding of the human ear canal anatomy, the sound isolation earphone'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.
