Really good idea right there. the new ultimate xtra bass series, something like a sony ex1000 with xb90ex bass ksc75smile.gif

Got a question for everyone. Any of you guys own a Cowon? I am getting impatient with the X3 delay and I am wondering if any of the Cowon players the i10 to be specific will deliver a different yet satisfying sound to compliment my Sony Z1060. I doubt the sound will be better but I am looking for a different sound..

 

Cowons any good?

post #11511 of 32858

I have had Cowon(2), Sony(4), and iriver(4) players. I like iriver the best(my old ifp and my new E300, not the stuff in between wink_face.gif), then Sony, then Cowon. Cowon is different(less bassy, a bit more synthetic and thinned out vs. a Sony w/o any EQ). More sound effects/and presets to try out. Just used to be a bit processed sounding vs. the slightly more natural sounding Sony and iriver. Best to read up on Cowon here: http://www.iaudiophile.net/

 

 Maybe look at the Hisound Nova players as well. You will get a good complement against a Sony player based on the basic signature of the Nova and i10.

 

 

 

 

Also, U.S. CKX9 page is up. MSRP $94.95(so hopefully around an $80 street price)

So you guys think basso > ckn70?
Love cowon players. Better sound then Sony imo but Sony is warner. Good thing with cowon is vast eq means you can tailor to different songs.

Those E300s are cheap. Expandable memory is all I need. That looks like a decent little player for not much. If the SQ is good might have to try one of those. Been wanting to try something new and been waiting for the X3 but who knows when they will be out.

Any idea of the components they use in the E300?

post #11516 of 32858

CKX9 looks good on paper.

Might wait until I hear reviews before deciding on what to get.

UK press release says it will be £70 so hopefully some places will sell for £60.

Looks very similar to T-Peos H100.

Ya I am wondering if there is some rebranding or oem stuff happening here both companies are Korean and both products look similar in design and sound description. I am interested in that iriver E300. That player seems to be a great deal for what you get. If the SQ is good I might have to try one of those out. I have been looking at cowons but this iriver is not even half the price and the sound is good on them. That is a great deal as far as I am concerned.  I wonder why those don't seem to be too popular. People just don't know about them?

The E300 is half good half bad kind of thing. A beautiful player physically but takes getting used to(i.e. up and down buttons are FF and RW in its UI). It uses an older Action chipset which is why it sounds really good but it is a slower deliberate player(Not great to go through long lists with). Strangely Cowon inspired player(30+ presets and a bit more balanced than older irivers). Excellent pedometer that I get use out of and an excellent FM radio with perfect reception. They brought the line-in recording back as well. Sound, radio and looks are great(all better than my S639 and Rocco P) but operating the device is tedious at best. If you can set it up and just play your music it is okay. Huge issue is internal and external don't combine(though I don't mind as I bought 4gb model for podcasts and use my 32gb card for music). It has a knack of finding a preset that makes every phone sound good and it is still tactile and not touch controls.
