Summary: I have cheaper and better sounding mp3 players. No matter how I set the sound enhancements or which earphones I used, it still gave mediocre sound with average bass. Same earphones with other players gave better results. This unit is a nice size but has a terrible main menu system and small painful rock hard buttons. Best way to push buttons is using your fingernails. It is pretty loud but distorts at higher volume making it useless to turn up.
Summary: I have to say that this is the first MP3 player that i have enjoyed thoroughly. I have had other portable players such as the SONY Network Walkman NW-HD1, and Apple's I-Pod Shuffle (great for exercising), but none of them have really cut it for me as far as quality of sound, design and features. The features of the Cowon F2 are really great.
Summary: This is one great audio player. I've owned other models, and needless to say this is definitely the best sound quality I've ever heard. It has so many equalizer and sound enhancement options, that it's ridiculous. It's amazing that this little unit can produce such great sound. It is also well built and sleek looking. So if your looking for a DAP that is of the highest quality and not too expensive, then this unit IMO should be 1st choice.
Summary: This player provides very good sound and convenience. For some reason, Amazon doesn't include the carrying case and A/C charger, which you will receive by ordering from Cowon's store (Jetmall). Positives: The sound quality is great. The audio enhancement features work very well, and give the sound richness and fullness. Unlike Ipod and almost all other mp3 players, there's no need to install any software on your computer in order to transfer songs to the F2.
Summary: Very lite and amazing sound lot of battery life excellent for long trips. The radio has poor reception but you really don't need use it. I would recomend this for somebody that wants to get into the MP3 devices for the first time and is not expensive to get it if you buy it on the internet.
Summary: We already have two Cowon products (60 GB and 1 GB U2) and it was time to get a slightly roomier mp3 player for my wife. She loves the drag and drop feature. She was quite surprized at how small the F2 player is - pretty much the same size as U2, even though the dimensions are posted. However, she was disappointed that the package did not contain a carrying case and/or the necklace, which came with U2.
Summary: This a very nice mp3 player. I have the 4gb one. This definitey tops iPOD for a number of reasons which most consumers dont really care much of but I do. Here are my favorites; The sound processor on this player is much brighter and more powerful than ipod. 60mw of power (because I love listening at high levels which I usually set the max 25 out of the 40 volume levels, it's pretty damn loud) and it has a max. of 95db vs. 90db for ipod.
