Philips Ambilight TV OLED+ 907
2022 is the fifth year of Philips TV’s partnership with audio specialist Bowers & Wilkins on our premium TV’s and together with the OLED+ 907 the two companies have created a big step forward in the scope of the OLED+ range.
Where typically OLED+ models communicate both outstanding picture and sound performance, the OLED+ 907 still offers fantastic Bowers & Wilkins sound but fully integrated below the screen in a Kvadrat fabric wrapped sound unit together with a subwoofer carefully embedded into the backcover.
For 2022 we have created a new more acoustically transparent fabric together with Kvadrat for heightened audio quality.
Our European Design partnership strategy continues into the Remote Control where Muirhead leather wraps the sides and rear surface to allow users to feel the quality in hand.
The surprisingly small stand footprint in satin dark metal is achieved by having a non-visible rear stability bar which allow the TV to swivel for a great user experience.
Philips Ambilight TV OLED+ 937
Philips Ambilight TV’s flagship launch for 2022 is the OLED+ 937 which visually represents reference quality performance through its physically separated Bowers & Wilkins sound system that also forms an integrated part of the TV’s stand.
The OLED+ 937 features the same building blocks as those brought into the OLED+ 907 with a new Kvadrat audio fabric and Muirhead leather wrapped Remote Control as the starting point of its design.
Four sided Ambilight and the detailing externally and acoustically internally set the OLED+ 937 apart.
For 2022 the sound system has added, on top of upfiring Atmos speakers, side firing drivers visualized by the angled metal speaker plates. The detailing of the holes in the plan echo the central exposed tweeter mesh which is a reference to the Bowers & Wilkins own speaker detailing. The finishing on all metal parts are a move away from full chrome with a satin aluminium finish to easily fit into modern homes.
Philips Fidelio wireless Home Sound products: Fidelio Soundbar FB1, Fidelio Subwoofer FW1 and the Fidelio Wireless speaker FS1
For 2022 the new Philips Fidelio wireless Home Sound range offers beautiful individual objects that also integrate as a family, system of products that can cater for all user needs. The range can be bought individually or can combine as part of an extensive home cinema set up easily connecting via PlayFi wireless technology.
The design of all elements of the range is based around discrete quality in order not to defocus attention from the TV screen content.
A dark metal mesh wraps the speaker surfaces. The angled top surface on the FS1 satellite speaker denotes the Atmos upfiring speaker and the brand’s European Design brand promise is in evidence in the Muirhead leather wrapped chamfer that runs around the top edge of each product as well as the control island on the FB1 Soundbar in order for the user to feel the quality at their fingertips.
Philips Sports Bluetooth Speaker S4807 and S7807
Having launched GO Headphones in 2021 Philips TV & Sound has been working on a range of fully outdoor BT Speakers to extend the GO family.
Available in both black & red and light grey & yellow, the design has unique protection caps and recessed colour accents speaker holes to give a modern yet robust sound solution for outdoors. The colour accents extend the metal detailing and fabric strap.
