Good product that has room for improvements to make it great.

Summary: The resistive touch-screen took some getting used to, but can be navigated with something as simple as an eraser (I had some wooden pencils lying around and managed to put them to use again). The battery came partially charged and quickly filled up when I plugged it in to my computer.
Summary: In quality and excellent sound fidelity. Something to improve the screen is slow and has low resolution. Should improve the software and place a better touch screen. In very good sound fidelity.
Summary: The Battery life is great, way longer than anything else on the market. The sound is great too, I use a pair of V-MODA Remix ear buds which have a great sound in their own right. The X9 has custom sound settings for up to 4 people, you can set them for different ear phones or whatever you like.
Summary: This is the best MP3 player I have owned (owned a lot over the years) the only issue I have is the accuracy of the touch screen. The way the screen is designed the corners are very difficult to touch the screen in which makes calibrating a nightmare, it also has a habit of selecting the wrong song...
Summary: I'll get down to it and just say the only thing I hate about this player is the touch screen. I've owned 2 other Cowon players and this one is both my favorite and the worst because of the touch resistant screen annoyance.
Summary: Cowon for me has been a company that delivers just what I've been looking for and about, getting good sound. These players are solid performers when all is said and done. Yes, they do have subtle quirks about them, but in the end they deliver what most of us want, beautiful music.
Summary: The unit has really good sound. Amazing in fact. I use it all day at work and connect it to the cheap computer speakers, no sub, that came with the work system. This thing makes those sound decent at very low volumes which I operate at so as not to disturb co-workers.
Summary: So why 4 instead of 5? Here's the breakdown. Pros -Amazing battery life. I travel alot so I need something that I don't have to constantly charge and this is perfect. At 110 hours I have gone days without charging considering I use this for at least 5 hours at a time. -Music files.
