Summary: Had excellent features and a REALLY COOL touch screen. Problem is I could not get mine to record and play music. No matter what I did I finally got it to record but could never play them in my 2013 Ford Escape. Terrible manual and NO support anywhere online or to chat or call.
Great sound, the user interface leaves a lot to be desired.

Summary: I agree with the other reviews here. The player sounds great and it plays everything in my library be it flac, ogg, . . . and does it well. The user interface is not intuitive but I am beginning to get comfortable with it. The battery life is nothing like the estimate in the specs.
Summary: It's a decent player with good sound quality. The color therapy is a hoax, useless and nobody needs it (it's just an option to choose the color of the interface with a fancy name). Who needs therapy while listening the player anyways?
Great sound, great equalization, excellent amplification, and yes extremely horrible operating system.

Summary: If your looking at Cowon you are obviously tired of being let down by the other mp3 players and their sound. I have found Sony Mp3 players to be close to this quality with everything from apple being far inferior to this amount of equalization.
Summary: Yes this player can be a tad frustrating to operate as several of Cowons players are, but $150.00 for 32g and jet audios awesome sound is just too good to pass up. I own about 11 Cowon players of all different models, some are a bit of a pita to operate, but I mostly load music, push shuffle, n let...
Summary: Returned this item today. It looks great - if you go to Cowon's website and see all the pictures you'd think this is one magical product - and it matched all my requirements (32GB space, easily accessible as a USB disk, in-built speaker, good sound quality) yet I am returning it. Why?
Summary: I bought it along with the Audio Technica M50 headphones and its a match made in heaven. The player adds something magic to my existing mp3 files - audio is very "crisp" and perfectly balanced. The BBE effects are not a gimmick, they work for sure.
Summary: Best sounding player ever; a few small things needed but not worth removing a star for. Would have been nice if the aux were unplugged the music would be paused, rather than continue playing from the internal speakers. A mute button would also have been good. But that aside, perfection.
Great sound quality and experience, poor resolution! But this is not a TV

Summary: Very good sound experience, altought a little distortion sometimes. Great sex appeal, good to touch, BBE+ is an impressive bónus for this machine! 3 faulty pixels (dead pixels)and poor resolution! great battery life and ... the sound is really better than every MP3 I know.
