2 weeks ago
Summary: First off, the unit does have amazing sound. I'll give it that. Probably the best I've heard in a small player. The biggest drawback is poor manufacturing. Mine kept randomly dying on me, turning off and being completely unresponsive (even after being fully charged). This happened three times... each time it took hours and hours of being plugged in before it even would turn back on. The last time took two days.
Summary: We got this for our teenage son. After about 2 weeks, and sitting with the mp3 player in his pocket, screen broke! We went back to his old Creative Zen and bought him a memory stick to expand storage capacity. This has worked better!
Summary: I would thank Cowon for making this device in a way that I can have a chance to say goodbye to all their 95 dB S/N ratio devices. 40g weight, 8.9mm thickness, in an era when the look and convenience is almost as important as the sound quality of portable music player, I chose iAudio 9+ Black when it was out in 2013. Careless handling caused physical damage, I did not have second thought ordering this white one on the same day because no 16GB Black available anymore.
wasnt expecting.......................SUCH AN AWESOME PRODUCT!

Summary: best mp3 ive owned. yes it may be a cheaper modle compared to the j3's or w.e but wow!! everything i read was right about sound...rich crisp perfect great wowowowowowow!!!!!!!!!!!! interface is ok but i buy products for quality sound not how flashy the player looks!....im a musician and hate anything i product and have always used mp3 players i was a sony customer.....ill repeat "WAS" haha now i amd loyal customer of cowon.
Summary: My sister-in-law was complaining about digital music, which she listens to on her I-stuff as a compressed MP3. I enjoy listening to flac files on this device, which offers far superior audio quality. It take some time to convert Blu-ray files to flac, but it's worth it.
Summary: Cowon makes some of the finest players out there. Exceptional sound quality and extraordinary customization features. All true. (That is, when they're working.) The iAudio 9+ lacks the build quality of the original iAudio. Cowon has very loose quality control standards with their new generation of players.This is the second player I've had to send back to the company for repair.
