Philips: Ride like a star event
The main thing to rave about is the latest range of GoGear audio/video players from Philips. While the Stuff Staff was riding around the CBD and environs with the lovely folks from Philips and Text 100, we were "administered" a blind test in which we listened to the same song at the same volume on 3 different music players. All of us selected the one that we thought sounded the best - and surprise, surprise - we all chose the Philips GoGear player - without knowing what the others had picked! Not a difficult feat really, because the difference was obvious. The sound was so much clearer and brighter. Every strum of the guitar and beat of the drums was sparkling and larger than life. Their patented FullSound technology, which is designed to restore detail that is lost during MP3 compression, sounds just fabulous.
The new Philips GoGear players featuring FullSound are available at electronic outlets and department stores.
