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 love this MP3 player - it's the third one I bought! The sound is great. The battery life is longer than most of the other MP3 players - I only need to charge it about once a week or even longer (and I listen to it quite often - especially working out). Once you figure out how to use the controls (probably the only con for the product) - it's a cinch. You'll get use to it once you play around with it for a bit.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Long Battery Life, Lots of Storage, Reliable Performance
Summary: I don't write reviews for things, and I'm not gunna start now. This is a note of pure complaint. This product is a massive headache for the following reasons: 1) the interface. it is the most non-intuitive, overly sensitive, glitchy thing Cowon could have come up with - this includes the "touchscreen" and physical buttons. 2) battery life. its bad. I see this is out of stock now. It should stay that way.
Summary: This is a great player for all your audio - 16gb holds a lot of music. Not so good for video - only has a 1.3" screen, Excellent audio though, tons of ways to change the sound of your music, ie; JetEffect, 5band equalizer, BBE, etc. Cowon iAudio is the best for all your audio needs. It has a dynamic Playlist but it is challenging to get your own playlists on it. Winamp will do it in MTP mode, but I have found it is buggy.
Summary: Excellent sound, but quite different than the Sony's. The Sony's have a little tighter Bass and a larger sound stage, but the Cowon can be made to sound more detailed and cleaner in the mids and uppers. Perfect portability, however, the interface is little difficult at times. I'm so use to the Sony sound signature, that it has been a little difficult to appreciate the Cowon sound. Tighter, and more detailed, and a bit narrower.
Summary: Compare with X5L, I7 sound quality is a little bit off, but it is still better than 99% portable players out there especially to iPod. There is almost nothing sound worst than iPod anyways. The only problem on this player is FM setting. It can be very hard to set up all preset stations. If you read Chinese. I have a better review with pictures at here: [...
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.
Works with Linux, makes a great alarm clock, great customer service!

Summary: I bought this little guy about a year and a half ago when I decided that I was done screwing around with the CD player while working. Being a Linux user, I decided I needed an mp3 player which could play OGG vorbis audio files, as well as be compatible with any operating system. Through NewEgg, I found the Cowon iAudio, which turned out to have just what I need. The device is small, like all mp3 players, and responds to touch-sensitive buttons on the front.
