I just hope Cowon FINALLY does away w/the irritating bass roll-off issue on the D3 and X7. I've held off getting an iPod classic because of the prospect of the HOPEFULLY spacious capacity of the upcoming X7 - and if it doesn't finally come out by Nov I'm getting the classic.
Don't get me wrong, my D2 and J3 sound great, but the classic sounds wonderful w/the cans I own. Either way I won't lose, but Cowon will lose my money and voice - and that's what matters. I am quite happy w/my J3, but I want MASSIVE CARRYING SPACE!!! And,..................no bass roll-off (this will make the Cowon the best sounding DAP around, better than my personal fav - SONY!!!).
