Enjoy digital music in a compressed format without losing any sound quality. The Muse supports FLAC and APE formats, which are files that have been reduced without losing audio depth. The richness and clarity of the original music source are retained for complete enjoyment wherever you go. Sound Isolation Headphones Minimize Environmental Noise
Sound isolation headphones let you hear greater music detail at a lower volume than is possible with normal headphones. These headphones have an angled acoustic design that 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 detail without noise distractions from the environment. Earphone sleeves are available in three sizes to provide the best fit.FullSound for Richer, Fuller Audio
The Muse uses Philips' FullSound technology so you can experience CD music without any distortion. Based on an audio post-processing algorithm, FullSound combines Philips' 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. Surround Sound Creates Natural Soundstage
Surround for movies is an advanced audio technology that recreates a natural soundstage with sound elements both individually and precisely localized. The processed sound elements are then directly delivered to each ear via in-ear headphones. The result puts the listener right in the middle of the action for an immersive surround experience.
