  • Summary: Needed a good player for my FLAC and APE files (which my iPod could not do). Bought this player on the various internet recommendations although its ridiculous expensive in Europe (239 Euro for 16G version). It's a very good audio player in a nice looking package.
  • Pros: Compact, lightweigth, very good sound (for portable)
  • Cons: Feeble USB / mm card cover, software stability issues at low battery

  • Summary: Hi, I used the J3 with vsonic gr07, sony ex1000 and don't think it is a very good sounding PMP.
  • Pros: Very clean sound. Beautiful and abundant custom themes and UIs. The player's design
  • Cons: Thin, cold and lifeless sound. Bass is shallow , sibilant mids. EQ makes sound even worse than the default (mainly squeeze the mid-range)
