Philips Manufacturer Description
Superior sound experience with FullSound™ and noise cancellation
Philips GoGear Muse 16GB MP3 and video player features FullSound™ technology and noise cancellation headphones for exceptional sound and inspired music enjoyment on the go. Plus, viewing videos is a joy on its 3″ Wide-QVGA colour display. If you need more storage capacity than 16GB, the Philips GoGear Muse also comes in a 32GB version.
Built-in active noise cancellation for undisturbed enjoyment
With Noise Cancelling technology, you can listen to music on the go without being affected by ambient noise. Earphone microphones detect ambient noise where it affects you most and then a digital signal processor creates the necessary equal but opposite waveform to effectively cancel out the unwanted noise, thus bringing you closer to silence. The earphones’ special design also provides exceptional sound isolation and a choice of three interchangeable ear caps to ensure a perfect fit.
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.
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 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.
3″ wide-QVGA colour display for superb video enjoyment
A snazzy 3-inch wide screen display screen on your GoGear player offers WQVGA resolution for superb video quality and crisp, vivid images. Plus, you can navigate easily within the control menu or browse your media files while enjoying music and video entertainment on the go.

This longlasting player allows you to savour your favourite tunes for up to a whopping 25 hours of continuous music playback or up to 5 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 2 movies back-to-back wherever you go.
Create playlists or delete songs directly on the device
The Playlist on the go function lets you easily create playlists on your GoGear anytime, while on the move. Likewise, the Delete function simply lets you remove any media that you don’t want on your player. No need to rely on your home PC to create playlists and delete files.
