What are you looking for?
If its sound quality, and I've only had the Cowon J3, but the X3 is much better.
Usability, battery life, other features... J3 is better.
Take a look on Ibasso DX50, he is very good with almost all IEMs and headphones.
Cowons has synthetical sound and cheap plastic cases, bad screens.
I'll go +1 Cowon. If it's your first foray into this field, Cowons are a good entry-level place to start.
Amazing battery life
Great if you like tinkering with different EQ settings.
Expandable via Micro SD Slot. I have a 64GB card in mine and it takes very little time to load.
Great value for the cost.
Has a decent quality sound recorder built in.. If you like to bootleg shows or anything like that.
Keep in mind that it is a large player. I own one and it's almost as long as my hand.
The screen is a capacitive touch screen, which is a lot less responsive than, say, a smartphone or ipod touch. Expect some reistance, but if your main aim is playing music then this is a small price to pay.
No other apps, if you're into that sort of thing.
The UI takes a little getting used to, but once you've played with it for an hour you'll pick it up no problem.
