Cowon D2+ 16 GB MP3 Player (Black) Reviews

great flash-based player

Posted

Pros: 48 gb memory with 32gb sdhc card. Hardware buttons for FF or Vol. Good SQ.Cheap if used. Can install Rockbox on it. 30h battery life on flac.Repl bat

Cons: Sound on the warm side. Touch screen a bit too large for some people. Somewhat buggy and clunky UI, but can use flash ui alternatives.

Pretty sure I had it for two years now (and I run with it all the time.carry it with me 5/7 days a week). IIn this time I went through about 5 portable earphones or IEMs, but the player survived/never felt a need to upgrade from it. It's well built, has good sq (natural if a bit warm sound if you turn off all the enhancements), outstanding battery life(and you can replace the battery with nokia ones afaik), shdc expansion and ample internal memory. Supports mp3,wma,flac and ape, ogg, etc. Otherwise, read the pros/cons. The internal amp has plenty of power to drive HP even being able to drive my D5000 for a few times I was insane enough to use it as a portable. No problems with any IEMs...
