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? 38 hours of music playback is a MYTH (in my case) I'm lucky if I can use it for 5-6 hours. Even if I don't use it it dies in 4-5 days. I have other players that hold the charge for weeks.
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. I really don't know how someone can listen to this device once and go back to apple products for music. I really hope they change at some point, but it seems doubtful. The sound is great. From mp3 to FLAC files.
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 the enjoyment begin. Would not hesitate to buy this or any of their players. It's nice n lite :-) n fits nicely in your hand.
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? 1) The UI is terrible. Color Therapy is a useless addition, but I don't mind that. What I mind is the whole navigation mechanism. The player isn't touchscreen.
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. I use the BBE Headphone 3 setting and it is the perfect level of treble and bass for me. This may sound like a cliche, but I am hearing things I didnt realize already existed in those files.
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. Edit: There is actually a way, in the settings, for the internal speakers to not automatically play music once the aux cable is removed!
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. And that was because of the sound quality I bought it.
Summary: It's great product. Thanks to Infibeam for such competitive rate. Also by current standards of E-Commerse the delivery time was fair after the order was placed. Customer care services need an improvement(attitude of personnel) though and also heard about bad after sales service, which fortunately enough I never had required to use, also needs an improvement.
Summary: I like it for the most part but the pictures are very misleading to be honest! Not sure if it's just this batch that they changed it but the white is not matte and instead resembles a washed out white with a minor yellow hue. I'm not a fan of that.
Pros: Amazing Quality, Sleek design, Good price, Solid build, love the interface
