Cowon C2 Review

Anything but iPod
19 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The Cowon C2 is a very good audio player, packed full of features and top notch sound tweaks. It would be a decent video player too, but the low-res 4:3 screen isn’t really up to today’s standards. Resistive touch controls are also a bit dated for people being spoiled by snappy capacitive touch screens, but it certainly is usable. The user interface works, but it’s a matter of getting used to its gimmicky looks and some awkward usability decisions.
  • Pros: Best-in-class BBE sound enhancements, very good sounding hardware EQ, Gapless audio playback (with properly encoded files), Excellent audio codec support, good video codec support, Undocumented features: supports AAC/MP4/M4A audio, some h264/AAC/MP4 videos, SRT subtitles, MicroSDHC slot, Internal memory and SD card fully integrated in audio tag browsing mode, User-selectable MSC and MTP transfer modes, No background hiss, loud internal amp, Excellent battery life, Fai...
  • Cons: Outdated low-res TFT screen, sub-par resistive touch response, Awkward, incoherent/inconsistent user interface, too ‘cute’ looks, Gimmicky ‘spinning vinyl’ album art, Sub-par support for playlists and audiobooks, Video interface lacks pan/scan functionality, No proper resume functionality, Broken, buggy MTP transfer mode, (Semi-) proprietary USB port, Metal back scratches very easily

Cowon C2 Portable Media Player

Tech2
7 February 2011
  • Summary: The C2 is priced at Rs. 6,725 for 4 GB, Rs. 8,250 and Rs. 9,250 for the 8 and 16 GB versions respectively. You can add another 32 GB to the in-built memory via the MicroSD card slot. There were some quirks here and there like small icons on the UI or for that matter, a small screen for watching videos. However, the positives are that you have a player with a superb DAC that can play a wide range of audio formats.

Обзор Cowon C2: долгожданное продолжение уже в России

Hi-Tech@mail.ru
3 September 2011
  • Excerpt: «Классических» плееров, заточенных прежде всего под качественное воспроизведение музыки различных форматов сейчас на рынке очень мало. Многие компании вообще ушли с этого захиревшего, с приходом играющих MP3 телефонов, рынка, другие переключились на мультимедийные плееры, способные без проблем играть HD-видео, но с трудом помещающиеся в карман. В массовом сегменте, фактически, остались три крупные компании: Apple , Sony и Cowon .

Test du Cowon C2

Generation mp3
13 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Au final, je suis plutôt mitigé. Certes, ce C2 hérite des qualités communes à tous les baladeurs Cowon, à savoir de nombreuses fonctionnalités, une très bonne qualité sonore, de nombreux formats supportés ou encore la lecture gapless. On saluera encore une fois l’autonomie et la bonne intégration de la microSD. Cowon a même fait des progrès sur la finition avec une face avant réussie (on oubliera l’arrière par contre).

  • Conclusion: Si vous ne connaissez pas la marque, le C2 se positionne à un prix intéressant et aura le don de ravir vos oreilles pour l’audio. Si vous êtes déjà fan de la marque, alors non, ne changez pas votre lecteur du moment et attendez le prochain produit de Cowon. La qualité sonore. Rien à dire.
