if not , what would you consider buying as a J3 replacement ?


I got myself a J3 backup, mostly by accident as I happened to spot it in a pawn shop window. The battery is slowly failing on my main J3 so it's good to know I have a replacement at hand.

 

I've considered buying the Fiio X3 but the battery life seems to be fairly poor so I've decided to wait and see what the X5 will be like. I'd gladly get an A&K but the prices are a bit steep for me.

Wish I could find a new J3 for a decent price. Seems to be hard to find these days.

the ringke silicone cases arrived - whoever feels like buying a great silicone case for his J3 , this is the one.

thanx again Garcsa.

You're welcome!

J3 is  amazing.:wink_face:

post #3097 of 3129

It really is. I'm sure there are better sounding players but the price vs performance ratio, especially when including the amazing battery life, is very hard to argue against. I wish Cowon would make a J3 successor.

Me too. Combining J3 user interface and battery life with recent improvements in affordable sound quality would result in a great product.

Anybody wants a J3? I have mine in the For Sale section. Checkout this link for those who are interested.

Hi there, I have a little problem with my J3. It works perfectly, except that the PC can't see it. When plug it on it just starts to charge. Maybe the cable?

Def try a different cable. Also, the obvious ... re start your computer as well ...

Like mentioned above, restart your PC and try a different USB port.

If all that fails I would then do a soft reset from the J3 menu options, then as a last resort reinstall the firmware.

Try the easiest/quickest options first like a different cable, restart, different USB ports

Also give the J3 port and cable port a blow to try and clear any dust.

Yep, the cable was broken. Thanks for fast response  :smile:

Now few people talk about J3.

I didn't even know we had a J3 thread! Unfortunately i ended up with a AK100 but will go Cowon next time again.

The S9 has some consistently great reviews.
