-- Cowon iAudio 7 review -- with lots of pictures (no blurry cell phone shots) - Page 9

I take it that you own 2 of these? (since there are two in each photograph)

My Cowon A3's been amazing for me and my usage of it. I heard many good things about Cowon's iAudio line of players. It seems like they live up to the name, or so your review tells me.

I bought my i7 in Oct. 2007. It has seen MUCH use in this 2 year+ period. The battery still lasts a very long time although I don't test total hours. It has worked pretty much flawlessly. I don't abuse my gear so this would be a big factor...never been in a case and the screen is still perfect.

In fairness, I should post back to say that Cowon did send me a different unit the second time around. It's probably a refurb, although they didn't write anything about it in the online RMA status or anywhere else for that matter. I only know it's different because I copied down the original S/N number before I sent it off.

The iAudio 7 really does sound fantastic with some slight non-heavy handed use of the "Jet Audio" effects. It's just a shame that the firmware is so unreliable. For example, even on the new unit using firmware v1.18, there was a folder of FLAC files that the i7 skipped right over and refused to play, and other FLAC files will play, but only with slight skips in them. All of these files played perfectly on my computer and Rockboxed H120.
