Playback 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 recognize 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 savor the vast universe of digital music available.
High-definition headphones for precise sound
These ergonomically designed headphones with exceptional noise isolation feature precisely direct soundwaves from the speaker to your ear drums with the highest definition. 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.
FullSound™ to bring CD listening experience to MP3
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.
