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 & 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 analyzes the sound level on your Philips GoGear MP3 player and alerts you if the volume and exposure could have 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.
Enjoy digital music in a compressed format without losing any sound quality at all. GoGear supports FLAC and APE formats, which are files that have been shrunk without any details discarded. The richness and clarity of the original music source are retained for complete enjoyment wherever you are. Simply use the Philips Songbird software included with your GoGear, and drag and drop the FLAC or APE music files from your computer's music library into your GoGear. Get going with thousands of songs, and swing to the beat of the great originals.
A cool 6.1 cm (2.4") high resolution display on your GoGear player offers excellent video quality and crisp, vivid images. Together with a full color menu, the large screen allows easy navigation of media files to complete the package for a all-round multimedia experience on the go.
FM radio with RDS and 30 presets for more music options.
Voice recording converts your GoGear player into a handy dictation machine. Besides playing music or listening to 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!
LikeMusic lets you experience more of the music that you like most – with just a click! No need to sort through your music library or wait for serendipity to strike. LikeMusic is a Philips patented algorithm that analyzes songs in your library to identify similar music characteristics. These characteristics help LikeMusic create smart playlists of songs that simply sound great together. Just click on a song that you like and hit the LikeMusic icon – a playlist will instantly appear. Give it a name and enjoy your new playlist – or rediscover songs – on your PC or your GoGear player.
Folder view is an optional directory view of the GoGear player that lets you view all the files on your player as if it were a computer. Once you select Folder view, opening any supported file (i.e. music, pictures or videos) is as easy as selecting the file and hitting Play.
Built-in speaker to share your entertainment experience.
