Summary: I've owned the Cowon i10 for a week now and it has been nothing but wonderful! The audio is typical cowon...the best!, the interface, while not the most intuitive, is easy enough after a few hours of playing around with it. The color therapy thing is a gimmick and I haven't really played with it.
Summary: To repeat earlier reviews, the sound from this player is incredible. Using it as a source for a decent Tivoli speaker system while in temporary lodging and the crispness and range of the sound has improved dramatically over my iPad.
Summary: I have this mp3 player for almost 2 years. It has the best sound quality and EQ. BBE+ and JetEffect create huge difference than any other poor EQ. BBE+ effects can reduce and fix sound quality loss in any audio formats.
Summary: The i10 is a step backward for Cowon. I had an iAudio X5 for many years, using it so extensively that I had the battery replaced four times. It was a trip through a mosh pit that was the beginning of the end of that player.
Summary: This is only the third pmp I have owned, and the first to play FLAC or OGG files. Sound quality is little short of amazing, depending on source materials. The BBE settings are not a gimmick, and can help make some mp3 files (and I suspect others) sound much better.
Summary: I've owned the older Cowon model J3 (touchscreen though), and I decided to buy this Cowon Audio i10 as I've enjoyed the sound quality paired with some fantastic Shure SE 535 earbud headsets (the best of this kind IF you like in your ear headset type).The only but very annoying thing is that over...
Summary: They need to address the problem with the player freezing and locking up. It does sound good when it does play. I use FLAC files only because I can't stand the sound of the ear piecing MP3 files.
Summary: Wow. Really. This player is AMAZING!!!! Finally, finally -- the sound quality I have been looking for all this time! Ok -- the interface is not trivial but it is not that bad. I picked it up really quickly, and it helps that there are a lot of web sites with info on the player.
