Hi there everyone... I thought I pretty much had one of the best players around in the cowon J3 but it seems like the S:Flo2 is considered to be better. I would consider getting one but I have two questions:
1) Does the S:flo really offer sound that is significantly better than the J3 eqd? I'm not one of those people who needs to listen on normal and I like having my music be music and not a science experiment - I listen to Heavy metal, rock, instrumental, classical, jazz, blues mainly
2) How reliable is it? I see alot of issues with the Sflo crashing and hanging... what is customer support like?
The battery life is weak and I'm not too concerned about video playback
Would my money be better spent on just getting better IEM's for my J3? Right now I have the HJE900's and the Fischer Audio Silver Bullets. Let me reemphasize that I think the sound quality on my J3 is absolutely fabulous... the Sflo2 has me very curious though lol.
It's not too expensive so I wouldn't be too upset if I didn't like it... but I would rather save up the money towards a pair of customs if the Sflo didn't offer a significant increase in sound quality (which from my research it is the only thing it has on the cowon J3), the impression I get is that people think the Sflo2 is 10/10 on sound quality while the J3 is more like a 7-8
Any feedback would be much appreciated!
