Excerpt: Cowon iAudio O2 does pleased my eyes. After my Ipod touch, I decided to go for Cowon O2. I am freak for watching movies and hearing songs while on the move. This product does supports almost all formats which is really amazing. The package contain with Cowon O2 has …
Summary: I want to give it five stars, but I had to go with four because *there are no playlists (except one 'favorites' list) - that one is huge. *of the shady user interface ... takes a good week to get used to.
Summary: Orphans in this case means any other player besides an Apple or Microsoft (or a handful of others..) product. This player is a gem. Sure the menus are a pain, but the video is just great and the sound quality amazing.
Summary: Video quality is great! Love the screen. Awesome sound quality, as expected from Cowon. But also, as expected from Cowon, terrible UI. It's so unintuitive, it left me blinking in disbelief. And, worst of all, don't get the O2 if you want to use playlist files - m3u's. It can't read them!
Looking for the best audio, and great video? You found it.

Summary: The O2 is a simple straightforward media player. It is hands down one of the best sounding players in the world. The BBE enhancements for the audio produce very lively and added warmth to the music. The built in amplifier can power the most demanding of headphones. The video looks very good.
Summary: After researching all mp3 players I asked for a cowon 02 for Christmas..and that's what I got. Several times I was queried "sure you don't want an IPOD?" Nope I want the Cowon! Well on Christmas, my sister got an IPOD, my niece got a Sansa and I got the Cowon.
Summary: I use the Cowon O2 as a replacemrnt for a CD changer in our home audio system. I rip CDs in FLAC format and use compression level 4. The connection I use is an analog audio cable. The sound is almost identical to the sound I get when playing a CD on my blu-ray player.
Summary: Although it looks good in design and the touch screen is great. It lacks using appeal. Browsing thru your files is no fun; there are no graphics, no pretty add-ins or anything. Just a steal looking folder in which you expand to view your media files.
Summary: I've always been a fan of Cowon. I think they typically make great mp3 and video players, and their D2 is my favorite mp3 player of all time. When the O2 was announced, I knew I would be buying one.
Summary: Like most of the Portable Media Players I get, the Cowon O2, is virtually unknown where I live, but I couldn't be happier with it. The wide variety of media codec support, means I don't have to convert my music and video just to listen to it.
