Excerpt: For $135-$140, you can have yourself one of the newest digital players on the scene. Is it a great one? I’m not sure is that’s what I Want to say about it, I mean it’s better than some of the ones I’ve bought but there are downsides to having …
Summary: I did lots of mp3 research and bought the D2. My husband loved it so I bought him one. My daughter loved ours so I bought her one. So 3 in the family and after over a year on each one we are all completely happy with them. NO PROBLEMS Great sound. no bad issues. If one did break we would have another within days.
Summary: If you are reading this, then you surely heard about quality of sound on COWON players and stuff. I can assure you — all they say about sound is true. This is a player to compare other with. The only thing I found disappointing is that said working time is SIGNIFICANTLY LESS than actual. It is said that player is able to work up to 52 hours. Yes, but playing one song from internal memory and set to zero sound volume.
Summary: I bought the Cowon Systems iAudio D2(16Gb) Digital Media Player about month ago and was impressed with the number of features available such as playing of lossless formats (FLAC), nice responsive touch screen, additional slot for SD card (SDHC supported) and non-latin letters in song tags/names support. The D2 size is perfect for carrying in almost every pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 40-45 hours of music playing (didn't test on video).
Excerpt: Well this little box of delights is GREAT. Now for the last 5 years i have been using an OLD ipod. And being truthfull, its been brilliant. A few probs at begining with losing all my tracks from itunes. But for sound quality its been great. Ease of use for adding tracks etc through itunes is just so easy. Its whats making the iphone popular too. But a few weeks ago i received a strange icon on the screen. Umm. BATTERY had died. I though, bugger it. DEAD IPOD.
Pros: Fantastic sound and many audio options, memory stoarage
Cons: Lack of itunes transfer . But not a major problem
Excerpt: Being a bit of a self confessed gadget geek, something that seems to be on my annual to do list is the purchase of a new MP3 player. Being something that I use on a daily basis, the sound quality had started to become more of an issue to me than the features of the player. Since it is for listening to music after all, I wanted to really make the most of it.
Summary: People on here reviewing these things need to grow up, i mean one guy gives it a 1 because he didnt like the radio quality, i mean if you want a radio buy a dedicated one, this is essentially a mp3 player with the radio as a bonus!!!!! And as a mp3 player its brilliant, sounds superb with my shure se530's and the battery life and features (including a great EQ) are just all great. Well worth a buy, if you like good audio, this beats ipods down with no question!!!!
Summary: Has to reset every day, DAB sometimes does not work in the same place and works only outside, 80 HZ lowest and 11.7 kH highest freq really crap, mach3bass does not incrase low-end bass, touch screen really tricky, not easy to use, after upgrade the system has stopped when I stick 8Gb sd card. It`s a really not stable device.
Pros: (74mW) really loud, many features,
Cons: system no stable, freezing problem with DAB, ext. card recognition prob., weak equalizer
