Best PMP ever. The greatness of this product just cannot be expressed by writing some good lines. Practically u have to use it to realise what a beast is this. I am a bass lover. The bass is awesome and at the same time soothing. The treble is incomparable. Clarity at its best. No. 1 in terms of quality of music it produces. Don't hesitate. Highly recommeded.

You immediately get a sense that something is fishy when you see a little known Korean Brand pricing a similar product at > IPod Touch equivalent.
I strongly suggest prospective buyers to research the product on external review sites first before buying.

If I was given 20k and asked to buy a Pmp I would have got IPod touch 5 g
It's apple double memory,bigger screen iOS and better camera with flash
It's is far better
Just 4 k more
I am typing from my iPod touch
Giving 3 for tech
Or if u r android freak go for samsung galaxy player it's far better than both of above but is not in India yet

Cowon ZZ stands apart from the rest of the PMP players. I stopped using my ipod classis ever since I got this delivered. ipod classic now is more of an external hard drive.
Voice clarity is at its best. I use Sennheise PX 80 headset with Cowon Z2 and can't have them on at full volume.
The only thing Cowon may want to improve is the Operating System. Android Gingerbread!
In my Opinion, if you want a simple to use and a powerful PMP player, then leave the rest and pick up COWON Z2.....
Cheers Korea.... Good Job Done.
Cowon Pleune Z2 " In a League of its own"
by Shivam Singh on 2014-09-20
I love music and it is a very important part of my life. With that said I have been a portable music guy from my wee years. I had a Sony Walkman player for a good part of my life and then in 2001 I bought my first Ipod. I have been using different versions of the ipod since then. Now I wanted something else and I started the research. I soon found a company called iriver which made some highly rates products and I was introduced to Cowon. Now I have to say the apple ipod has the best user interface and experience anything in the world can offer. When it come to music quality and customization though the Cowon Z2 is in a league of its own. The experience is out of this world. I can play all my files which have native support on the z2. You can throw any format and this thing will play it. The BBE and other option this thing has make the sound you listen to your very own personal one as you have the 5 band equalizer and can make minute changes to make the sound reproduction exactly as you need it. The built quality is awesome. It is light and sturdy. The expandable memory helps. I could keep going on an on about this amazing device but I am finishing up.
Bottom line is this. This is the best thing you can buy if you love your music and are looking for a PMP which can handle any format thrown at it and is well built.
I got it at a huge discount thanks to Flipkart and that made the deal even sweeter.

Like the title states above, I've definitely fallen in love with the Z2! Being a music buff that I am, I did an extensive research on the best available PMPs(Portable Media Players) on the market and reached a definitive conclusion that the Z2 should be it!
I've been the proud owner of an iPod Classic for the past couple of years(yeah, I do care for them ;)) and I have to say that the Z2 is a step above the iPod, with all due respect to the awesome "i".
A couple of things that may help you for comparisons with other PMPs(iPod, Walkman, Zune, Sansa etc): The Z2 is feature loaded - Wolfson DAC(most important!), highly customizable EQ presets, BBE enhancements, full hd video support(dedicated processor), default support for various formats for both audio and video, brilliant screen, additional memory support, bluetooth, dedicated music buttons, speaker, microphone, FM radio, HDMI port.... I'm exhausted typing!!
Now for the cons: I wouldn't say that the build quality is bad by any means, but its nowhere near an Apple ;) Another thing to note is that the Z2, although running on Android, can run most of the games and stuff you throw at it, still ain't that good at that department as some of its rivals. Its okay for me though as I wasn't lookin for another device to play Angry Birds on!!
Thats it then. Hope the review may have helped you. To conclude, the Z2 just rocks and you can't go wrong in choosing one. I have a Sennheiser HD 518 to go with it and its just musical bliss!!! Ciao!
This is one of the Best PMP in the world ..boost up with Android and flipkart service :)

As I stated in Title above this is the one of the most best PMP available in the market ever.. an true audiophile loves this .
feel digital experience with 3d surround and bbe+.
for more technical specs regarding codec support.
this is the PMP which gives tough competition to Apple ipod touch.
I think and iam sure z2 beats apple in all features except camera, however this is made for music listening so without camera is not a big deal.
simply a professional one.. you must have this one in your favorite collections..believe me this one blows you more than you expected ..guaranteed.
but in this materialistic world every product have an cons and pros, this product also didn't escaped unfortunately.
* class leading audio-advanced performer.
*Amoled screen brings you brighter video in all angles and gives you smooth HD video play back.
*plenue(customized android gingerbread) UI makes you feel better.
*support all types of file formats and codecs.
*little bit expensive
*Ageing Android 2.3.5 OS
*there is no built in android market app(off course you can install it manually)
* I think if cowon comes with firmware upgrade in future to get market as default it would be a great.
* battery back up is low when compared to other products from Cowon..
*bundled earphones are not upto mark , I suggest you people to go for best quality earphones , you need to spend extra money..but you worth it seriously..
*3.7in AMOLED Display
*1080p video playback
*JetEffect 5 Sound Enhancement Technology(proprietary technology)
*Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread
*Mini HDMI output
*microSD slot (upto 64gb - recommended is 32 gb)
On the right side volume controls are supported by dedicated play/pause and skip/search buttons which give the first hint of the Cowon Z2's multimedia-centric nature. On top is a power/standby button and at the bottom is a 3.5mm headphone jack with microUSB, (64GB compatible) microSD and mini HDMI ports hidden under a flap. A nice touch is this seemingly extraneous flap doubles up as a kickstand, which holds the Z2 in place when watching video.
NTFS file system so mac users need to do more exercise to use z2 :) need to use tool paragon NTFS for mac.
Z2 look more phone than PMP. The Cowon Z2 is equipped with a 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, 512MB RAM and a choice of 8GB,16GB or 32GB of internal memory, storage can be increased by the microSD slot upto 64 gb . On top of this you'll find Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an accelerometer.
no words to say..awesome and fantastic..
if you listen one time ..you are going to own this beauty ..challenge...guaranteed.
Watching video, the results aren't quite as stellar. Cowon has opted to include the ARM Neo 1080p decoding chip so Full HD video has silky smooth playback, but the 3.7in screen itself (while AMOLED with reasonably high 800 x 480 native resolution) is a bit of a disappointment. Viewing angles are wide and colour reproduction is reasonably accurate.
with the Z2 Cowon has dared to be different. It has embraced Android to add more functionality and attempted to offer a powerful alternative to the iPod touch. For the true audiophile this is a triumph, the Z2 sounds fantastic with superior audio processing, wide codec support, a responsive UI and expandable storage.
so guys ..if you want a real and true digital experience ..please go with this beauty..guaranteed ..
personally telling you people if you want a real digital and music experience go for any cowon product but z2 is the best among the cowon products.
Actually I tried to buy from Flipkart 32 gb version but unfortunately its out of stock , i cant wait upto stock comes so i bought it from USA. hehehehe I cant wait ..now enjoying with this black beauty....
Please share your experience with me once you grab this product.
for Samsung galaxy Y review please see my review in flipkart which I posted it may be helpful.
Thanks and regards
Suresh Kumar Kollapuri.
