Fantastic Mp3 insures that Rock N Roll Will Never Die
13 January 2013
Summary: My favorite piece of music equipment.The first one I owned which was full of my favorite Rock n'Roll music was stolen.I was on a mission to locate(not an easy task)the same Cowon MP3 Only Ebay could be the vehicle to help me get this done.I bid and I won.Excellent re-creation of music with ease of use.The equalizer makes the music sound that much better.I can't live without it!!
Summary: I'm a fan of Cowon's sound quality and voice recording. No other players that I have came across can match the quality of Cowon's player. Therefore, I have decided to buy it once more. The only problem with it is the sensitivity of the buttons. It is not very consistent. Overall, it is great.
Summary: Want to listen to your tunes on the go? Do you want portability (slip it in your pocket)? Do you need a player just for music? And foremost, do you want the absolute best in sound? Then, this little gem is the one you want. I'm an engineer by trade and very anal when it comes to electronics. I had an old Cowon 200 mp3 player that is about 6-7 years old. It just died from a busted earphone jack. It went thru a lot of torture over the years and always worked great.
Summary: I tried the iAudio 7 with the library's audio book vendor OverDrive. Plug in the device and Overdrive states this device is not compatible and will not work. So I tried using Windows Media Player to load the Overdrive audio book using the Syn and mtp function. The iAudio 7 locks up just after it finishes transferring the first part. So you have to stop Syn and unhook the player, reconnect the player and try again.
Summary: I have been a big fan of the Creative Labs MuVo players, the sound quality was outstanding (they make sound cards, so there you go) and the rudimentary interface of these tiny devices was balanced out by the fact they used AAA batteries. But, they were small (max 2GB) and I listen exclusively to non-DRM 320kbs MP3s or even WAV files.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I bought the Iaudio 7 8gb to be used exclusively in the auxiliary jack of my car. I'm not the type to walk around with headphones on so that option does not appeal to me. Ripping CDs and downloading songs is all new to me since this is my first MP3 player and I have to say that the software and directions that come with the Iaudio 7 are not very user friendly.
Summary: I have owned 4 creative zen v's, an ipod and a lexar, but this player's sound is in a class all of it's own. loaded in some flac files, and good lord - the sound from this is literally stunning. the only downside is the very strange GUI with this device, and the very touchy controls. They do frequently upgrade the firmware, so the gui can be lived with. they have to change the buttons, they are way too imprecise.
Summary: As an audiophile of many years, I'm usually bitten by any new audio technology. I tend to not follow the crowd into many gadgets, and MP3 players are included. Staying away from the iPod obsession, I purchased an iAudio U2 a few years back and totally enjoyed it!! Now, with experiencing the newer iAudio 7, have to admit it blows me away!!! There is not one person that will convince me the 'NANO' is better, no way!!
