Cowon C2 Impression and Discusion Thread - Page 5

post #61 of 141

Indeed, it sounds just fine. And a roll-off of ~1.3dB at 50Hz with 16 Ohm phones is basically inaudible to begin with - not to mention ~1.5dB at 30Hz with 32 Ohm.

Hello guys, I wonder if you could help me. I want to buy a new MP3 player and right now i want to have a good sound and a card slot. From the C2 or Sansa Fuze which one would be better? Or are there any other Mp3's that are better than these in the same price range?

 

I don't own/haven't owned any good MP3 players (i have an old 2 gb Philips player) so this would be a new purchase to me. I already have a pair of good audio-technica's for portable use but i lack a good MP3 player :(.

 

Pls help.

A Fuze with Rockbox is an excellent choice - with Sandisk stock firmware not so much. The C2 has the better (and easier to tweak) sound enhancements, but Rockbox has a very nice EQ as well. Also, the Rockbox interface - while being a bit intimidating to a new user - is certainly better than the C2 interface.

Well if the sound enhancements are similar or the C2 has better ones i think i'm gonna go for it. Also the C2 has a bigger screen and i commute alot between college-home with the bus/train and it would be nice to watch a video or something similar to help pass the time.

 

Anyway thank you for your help dfkt :).

what are the sayings in the beginning of the video... like "sunny day" etc.  are those just random messages or things you put in?  editable?  or are they default messages that comes w/ the player?

I think that is based on the hour of the day, but i'm just guessing here.

Yeah, that's some annoying screensaver Koreans probably find 'cute'.

 

Some teaser comparison pics, for the oldskoolers that still rock the D2. :)

The D3, and it's not worth the money.

Heh, Marvin...

 

Cowons have the best licensed sound enhancements, in my opinion. There's just no other brand of player that surpasses the BBE stuff, if one likes those things. I've tested Samsung's DNSe, Sony's DSSE, the SRS WOW stuff several brands license, and some other things. Cowon's BBE is still the king of the hill - the most natural, the most punchy, and so on. If you want flat sound, most players sound the same, but if you want to tweak your stuff, Cowon/BBE sure are a choice to consider.
