  • Summary: I thought the price was a more special, better screen, better sound, I think it's fine as a player, but the price is high for what it offers device.

Very good sound quality, but poor build quality

  • Summary: It really blows my mind by its sound But stopped working within 3 weeks, if you want to try your luck, go ahead. At least, its sound quality worth a try.

Awesome Player...If You Get One That Works...

Mr. Howell, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: With it's amazing battery life; seemingly infinitely customizable sound; and a wealth of features, this is an AMAZING MP3 player if you [liker myself] are just looking for a dedicated music player. Yes, it's got video; and some other accessories, but this device is primarily made for playing audio- and it does that well. The other things are just gimmicks- and if you're into those other things, there are other devices which do them better.

Arrived DOA.

PLS, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: The unit would not turn on or respond to charging or connecting to my computer. Had to pack it back up and return it to Amazon. They would not just send another one. Doesn't seem to be anyone home at Cowon to talk to. I ordered another one, this time an 8 GB unit to save $, and a week later that arrived and that one works.

so so

  • Summary: The sound on this player is amazing when coupled with good headphones. The clunky user interface will drive a man crazy, however, and that is the sole reason it got 3 (almost 2) stars. The menu system is really bad actually; it makes almost no sense at all. Album cover art does not load from Windows media player, so good luck trying to find the album you want by looking for the picture of it.

Device hampered by resistive touch screen....

Owen E. Heuston, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: Without fooling with the EQ settings, the X9's sound is worse than my lowly Sansa Clip+(which have set with no EQ). The X9 has to be used in conjunction with the EQ settings such as BBE and so on to attain decent sound. I found the X9 to be slow to respond and the resistive screen is antiquated at best. You can update the system flash in order to get a faster responding player, but should you really have to?

User Review

tsuriyuu, NCIX.com
20 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an ailing Cowon S9. I wasn't interested in the alternative (an android player) as the battery is poor on that one. The X9 is large. It's bigger than I expected and takes a while to get used to having in a pocket. The interface looks clean enough, but it's not very nice to actually use. The problem is magnified by the absolutely terrible low resolution touch screen. Trying to scroll through music is a huge pain.
  • Pros: - It has expandable memory, - Great Cowon sound, - Incredible battery
  • Cons: - Physically big, - Poor interface, - Poor quality resistive touch screen

Hardware awesome, software TERRIBLE.

Josh Goodwin, Amazon
8 March 2013
  • Summary: The hardware and features on this thing are unbeatable in the market, but damn the software is just horrific. I'm eagerly waiting a software upgrade or something --- because until that happens, I simply dread using this unit and thus rarely do.

Side buttons don''t lock while playing; out of order after a month

HL, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this mp3 player after reading that Cowon mp3 players have the best sound quality. However, just as one of the reviews (but I don't remember whether it was for the x9), the USB cable has a weak connection. It's about to fall off from both sides (computer and player). The x9 box looked a bit crinkled in the opening area which made me suspect that the item I received was a returned item.

Plays aac

P. Chivers, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: I won't write anything about the player as it's all been said. What I can't understand is that nowhere on the Cowon website does it state that the X9 plays aac files I use Winamp on Windows 8 and rip Cd's @ 420kb then make playlists in WMP and transfer them to the X9 as usual The X9 needs to be changed from MSC to MTP in settings first I know that the X9 can play flac, but I haven't found a way of creating and transferring playlists to the X9 Any help there, please?
