With over 120 years under its belt, this Dutch company has built everything from headsets to teething rings. Don’t let the brand deceive you though – Philips makes more than just light bulbs and MRIs. “With our 2012 consumer lifestyle product range, we’re moving to the next level in terms of our commitment to consumer health and well-being,” said the GM for Consumer Lifestyle Ms. Angelina Oh in the press interview.

Their flagship for this division is the Fidelio series, a page of headphones and docking speakers designed for maximum clarity and listening experience. Designed for the iPhone’s AirPlay streaming technology, it allows for a near seamless interaction with your Apple products. The Fidelio dockers also have counterparts that work with Android, allowing for near-universal compatibility with today’s mobiles.

For music on the go, there’s the Fidelio L1, a high-end set of musician’s headphones that deliver subtle, clear tunes for the hardcore music aficionado.


Philips Consumer Lifestyle: Kitchen


Philips has devised a range of cooking implements that they say will make healthy cooking a breeze. Most prominent was the AirFryer, a cooker that relies solely on hot air to evenly grill or ‘fry’ food without oil, while allowing for up to 80 percent less oil on your food than if you were to deep-fry it.

To keep up with the ‘healthy living’ mantra, Philips also came up with the Avance Juicer, which has the unique ability of taking whole fruits and vegetables without the need to cut them, as well as separating the pulp from the juice itself.

Philips Consumer Lifestyle: Child Care


Technology is no longer limited to the adult, especially in today’s progressive lifestyle. Philips took this into heart by entering baby care, through their childcare line, Philips Avent. Specializing in nursing tools for kids, as well as food preparation and baby monitoring equipment, Avent makes sure that your child gets the best in what modern technology has to offer in the realm of taking care of a child’s first years.

Philips Consumer Lifestyle: Personal Hygiene


Philips has always been at the front line of personal hygiene and grooming. Being one of the first companies to successfully commercialize men’s grooming with the electric shaver, they are now leading the way in Asia with their new pitch, ‘Express Yourself Everyday’. Among their flagships in men’s grooming is the Philips AquaTouch shaver, which serves both a wet-shave and a dry-shave function.

For female grooming, Philips focused on hair care. With the aim of providing ‘More style, less damage’, they created a new line of ‘smart’ hair dryers, curlers and straighteners, all with sensors designed to tell the user that the optimum styling temperature has been reached. In the line of oral care, Philips offers its SoniCare electric toothbrush range, which runs at 31,000 brush-strokes per second, ensuring you that dentist-clean feel. As they say, it is the leading recommended brush by dentists and orthodontists worldwide, and I am certain it’d make a rather eye-catching centerpiece in your medicine cabinet.
