FullSound™ to bring a 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.
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.
Lossless format (FLAC), MP3 and WMA playback
Your GoGear player supports a variety of audio file formats based on lossy (eg. MP3 and WMA) and lossless (eg. FLAC) digital compression techniques. With lossless compression, files sizes are larger but of higher quality since there is no loss of data in the compression process. With lossy compressed files, there is some loss of data but the files are smaller and so it's more convenient to store a lot more music on your GoGear player. The choice is yours.
