Awesome Overpriced Super Player
by Ritaban Guha on 2013-04-04
got this baby last noon, and I was so happy that in the package they gave a CE1 for free (that make 2 earphones in the box).
I have a pair of Twinwoofers so I didnt open up the CE1 yet. Just jacked in a MicroSD and my earplug and it was heaven.
Mp3s play like nothing before and HD videos also look awesome.
Still trying to figure out the UI. Its very cool but need to get used to.
Lets just not say about the plus points that every COWON has.
The device seems very bulky and frankly 12k does seem OVERPRICED>
But I guess if you have one of these, you are not going to need any other player/mobile to listen to music. they just cant replace it.
Customizing the Sound seems to make it worse, so just hanging to the BBE styles.
but once you can make good adjustments custom EQ wil give much better sound.
NO other player in the market gives this level of customization option.
THe player is just not comparable but again.. 12 k seem too much.
IF most people move for apple then I guess serious audiophiles have to bare this overprice...
Great Music Experience!!!

I have been using this product from last 8 months, this product is great in terms of sound production and battery backup.
Have used IPOD too, Cowon is for better than those.
Sound quality is very great!!! and the manual customisation feels heaven(i mean it)
I have made 2 customisation for myself those are great.
Trance music in this Cowon device feels simply awesome.
Since COWON is not house hold name not many people are aware of these devices.
I strongly recommend this product for Audiophiles those who concerns about sound.
I agree cost wise it is high, but if u are looking for a better sounding device u have to bare it..
Once again good sounding player.

First of all u need to be familiar with the touchpad system. so i recommend everyone to buy a smartphone and get used to it first before buying this kind of ipods.
now the sound quality is good, not out of the world but quite good. i havent used recent apple ipods so i cant compare. but this product can give u a clean and less colored sound. which is not easy to find. battery life is amazing. after hours of playing its still showing full battery.
now the only drawback is the user interface like everyone mentioned. it is very bad. far from today's smartphone standards. if your purpose is solely to listen to a clean sound and enjoy your music then go for it. i am giving it 4 stars.
8 Month usage..And still going strong!

There is no comparison in audio quality when it comes to Cowon..
My X9 has everlasting battery life...I charge it maximum 4-5 times a month.
Video doesn't supports popular formats.Touch is stuck ages behind....but is solidly built...The speaker on the device is as good as non existent..has no thump at all..
This product is only for storing huge music libraries and enjoying them on the go at best possible Audio quality.
Worst Shipping experience

I did not sign up for Flipkart First to wait for 2 weeks. This is crazy and insane, I could have just ordered it from Cowon India's website, rather than order through flipkart. The WSRetail price is 14000 while Seller: Cowon India's price is 12500. There was also 10% cashback which is horrible to hear will get refunded by Feb 2015. Why should Flipkart earn interest on my money for 5 months?
