Can't say enough good things about the sound quality
8 January 2015
Summary: I use this 8 hours per day. 5 days per week. Can't say enough good things about the sound quality. But you need decent phones to actually appreciate the Z2. I use both Etymotic Hf5's and Momentum On Ear's with it. Have not found a file format that the Z2 doesn't like. OS is outdated. Not enough of a user base for it to rate any custom rom's that I can find. But still great as is.
Summary: I love this product. It came preloaded with a bunch of songs and jailbroken or whatever it would be called. I love the songs; I know some already but most are completely new to me and I enjoy hearing new songs as I listen in the background; I found several new favorites this way. As for the jail-broken aspect, it caused my Cowon Z2 to lag a lot and a lot of things like internet to not function.
Summary: I wanted a MP3 player with a touch screen. I didn't want to use a phone. The Galaxy Samsung MP3 player was discontinued, I dislike Apple software/sync/interface, So basically I wanted something like the ipod touch, just not with itunes and all that baggage. This was everything i wanted and then some. Drag and drop music and video files, disconnect and go. Amazing sound quality.
Summary: Excellent MP3 player (sound, design). But it's not a complete Android device as it lacks the ability to connect to Google Market. Apps can be installed only by downloading APK files and transferring them to the device. Native mp3 player app produces low output. I recommend installing another music app such as poweramp (which adds more to all sound enhancements and capabilities).
Summary: Love the Cowon mp3 players and have always been gospel as the go-to player for audiophiles. However, I found these days, when you're just listening to mp3 files at highest or near highest bit rate which is what most people listen to given they are readily found in itunes or Amazon, then this player is not really necessary. I thought I treat myself again to the best audio having taken a break from the audiophile world and its many blogs and reviews.
Summary: Got one for my birthday The OS is a little wonky and the SD card had to be formatted a few times. Now it is up and running and man the sound is incredible. I am using in my car with jl audio speakers and at home with my westone 4r and UE 900. I love this device the sound blows away the iPod and I find it better than the fiiox3as well. Worth every penny and even better when received as a gift!!!!
