Could you tell me which Cowon (on sale) have this warm sound ?
Thank you very much.
If you are not using any of the JetEffects or the EQ, then the i9, i9+, i10, J3, X7, and X9 all sound almost identical.
I wouldn't call it a warm sound, more to the cold side, unless you start using the sound tweaks. Once you start playing around with the EQ and various BBE settings, the sound can change drastically. I've learned with the three Cowon players I've owned that you need to tread lightly with all those sound tweaks......with some gentle adjustments you can get a very pleasing sound, but it is easy to go to far and end up with a very unnatural and inaccurate sound if you're not careful.
Nice thing about my X9, along with the sound tweaks and 32GB internal storage plus a microsd slot, is the stellar battery life....rated over 100 hours.
