    • Your music and videos on the go - everyday

      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.
    • High-definition headphones for precise sound
      Designed according to the curvature of the human canals, these ergonomically designed headphones with exceptional noise isolation feature precisely direct soundwaves from the speaker to your ear drums with highest definition.
    • 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.
    • 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 this useful information that includes station identity, program details and song title and artist, etc. At anytime, you can store a desired station as a preset channel on your GoGear player. With 20 preset radio stations that can be stored, you can quickly access your favorite radio station without having to manually tune the frequencies each time.
    • Audible.com features digital audiobooks and more
      Audible.com is your destination for the widest selection of digital audiobooks, magazines, radio shows, stand-up comedy, and more available for download. Enjoy books in the car, at the gym, or around the house. Authors and icons read their own works, and famous actors narrate your favorite titles. At Audible.com you can browse and sample over 75,000 selections, including the latest best sellers and timeless classics.
    • Easy enjoyment on the go

      2" full color display for smooth and intuitive navigation
      A cool 2-inch 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.
    • 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 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!
    • Up to 30-hour music or 6-hour video playback.
      Forget about the hassle of having to recharge your GoGear player battery constantly. This longlasting player allows you to savor your favorite tunes for up to a whopping 30 hours of continuous music playback or up to 6 hours of video playback - all on a single charge. Now you can sit back and listen to music all day long or watch the equivalent of 3 movies back-to-back wherever you go.
    • Easy and intuitive experience

      Easy video downloads from the Internet to your GoGear
      View videos on the go with Internet Video Download, an easy-to-use feature that lets you download videos from video sharing sites (YouTube, MySpace or Google Video) to your GoGear. Install the PC application provided, connect your GoGear to your PC and use Internet Explorer to visit your favorite video sharing site. Choose a video and click the Download button that appears when you hover the mouse cursor over the video. No need to wait, just move on to other videos and start downloading more.
    • Easy and intuitive user interface with album art display
      GoGear’s easy and intuitive user interface is powered by an 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.
    • Folder view to organize and view media files like on your PC
      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.
    • Direct charging from PC via USB
      Charge your GoGear player battery quickly and easily from your PC via USB. By connecting your player to your PC with the cable provided and following the necessary prompts, your PC will provide the power for charging your player within a few seconds. Enjoy the convenience of doing away with a separate recharger.
    • Storage capacity based on 4 minutes per song and 64 kbps WMA or 128 kbps MP3 encoding.
      Actual transfer speed may vary based on your operating system and software configuration.
      1GB = 1 billion bytes; available storage capacity will be less.
      Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings.
