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.
Summary: The sound is very good. unfortunately it stopped working at 9 months. It won't reset , won't charge, can't get it to turn on. Cowon customer service is inaccessible. The touch screen is faulty. I am sad because I bought it because of the sound quality.
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.
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.
Summary: I really enjoy the software and hardware of this product. However, this product does not sync well with various media programs - It does not work with linux-based machines - and its storage space is sub-par.
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.
GREAT for music - not so much for everything else.

Summary: Got a "like new" used one for an unbelievably low price and I'm in love with it's great music playback and how you can pick the sound enhancement from a wide selection. Probably the BEST mp3 player I've had in a long time (and I've used almost all name brand players - ipod, zune, zen, sansa, sony,...
