Envision Peripherals Inc. (EPI), the Brand license partner for Philips Audio in North America, announces today the latest addition to the Philips audio line with the Philips Wireless over-ear noise cancelling headphone (TAPH805BK). The headphones are now available on Amazon, competitively priced at $199.99 USD. Ideal for at Home, in the Office, or on-the-go, the new Philips (TAPH805BK) headphones provide users with an unparalleled listening experience.

Music or Silence
Eliminate outside noise through a press of a button with Active Noise Canceling mode or flip to Awareness Mode to stay in tune with your surroundings. Users can control volume by swiping up or down on the ear-housing touch control panel. Activate or deactivate Active Noise Canceling or engage in Awareness Mode with a simple press. While carrying out a call over Bluetooth, its built-in mic with echo cancellation keeps sound crystal clear.

Hey Google!
With Google Assistant built-in, users can speak commands to read notifications while driving, manage playlists and much more. Activate the assistant by simply placing your hand over the ear-cup.

Flawlessly Tuned Comfort
Perfectly tuned 40 mm neodymium acoustic drivers deliver deep bass and clear midrange frequencies for an immersive experience. The new addition offers high quality sound and a comfortable fit through its light weight yet durable construction. Soft ear-cup cushions fully cover the ear, creating a seal that passively isolates external noise. Perfect for on-the-go, the new Philips Performance Wireless (TAPH805BK) headphones conveniently fold in two configurations: flat for storing in a drawer or they can be folded flat and inwards creating a compact bundle. The packaging includes a USB cable, audio cables, airplane adapter and a travel case to take on-the-go.

All Day Usage
Its extensive battery life allows up to 30 hours of play or talk time or 25 hours while Active Noise Cancelling is turned off. Battery life is an impressive 30 hours more than enough for even the longest trip- while fast charging means a further two hours of playback can be available in just five minutes.
