Using Philips' innovative FullSound technology, the GoGear Muse allows you to experience distortion-free, CD-quality audio. Combining Philips' expertise in music reproduction with the latest Digital Signal Processor (DSP), FullSound restores details to compressed MP3 music files for an enhanced listening experience that includes rich, full bass, and improved clarity on both vocal and instrumental tracks.
High Definition Video Playback and Output
A 3.2-inch HVGA touch-screen color display makes it easy to enjoy videos anywhere, while surround sound for movies puts you in the middle of the action. You can share your favorite flicks and clips with friends using the HDMI output, which makes it easy to watch the High Definition (720p) video that's stored on your Muse--simply plug into an HDTV and play (HDMI cable sold separately). The Muse also offers slide-show playback of photo files, making your favorite albums portable.
FM radio with RDS and 20 presets
Unlike many one-trick MP3 players, the Muse gives you access to FM radio, so you can catch the news, get traffic updates, and keep up with tunes that you haven't downloaded yet. The FM radio receiver is RDS-enabled, so it can pick up and display information about what you're listening to, including program details, song titles, and artist names. And the Muse lets you dial in 20 preset radio stations--you'll spend less time searching for signals, and more time listening.
Built-in Microphone Convenient for Note Taking
When you wish to capture and replay your own audio or simply take notes, the Muse includes a built-in microphone that allows you to record audio files in MP3 format.
8 GB Memory and microSD Slot for Memory Expansion
The 8 GB Muse holds up to 1800 songs, 2000 photos, or 32 hours of video. It also features a microSD card slot that allows you to expand the player's memory capacity up to an additional 32 GB to accommodate your growing media library (microSD cards sold separately).
Intuitive Touch-Screen Controls
Whether you're skipping through tunes, browsing video selections, or organizing photos, the Muse's intuitive touch-screen interface makes navigation easy. Simply touch the player's screen to navigate files, folders, and playlists.
Sound-Isolation, High-Definition Headphones
The included headphones offer exceptional sound isolation for uninterrupted listening. Whether you're walking down a windy street or riding crowded public transportation, the sound-isolation earphones minimize environmental noise, even at low volume levels.
Designed to match the curvature of your ear canals, these ergonomic headphones come with three interchangeable ear caps to ensure a secure, comfortable fit.
Extended Battery Life
The Muse features an extensive battery life. A single charge offers up to 24 hours of audio playback or 5 hours of video playback, and a convenient low-battery indicator lets you know when it's time to recharge.
