I just ordered a pair of shure 535s with the intent of hiking the CDT (very long harsh trail) and I want to maximize my purchase with the best mp3 I can match it up with. I hear Cowon has the best stuff but I'm having a hard time finding the right one.
One thing I absolutely need is internet capability. I was looking at the Cowon A5 but it is heavy and expensive. Of course I could solve all my problems by just getting an ipod touch but is the sound difference between an ipod and a cowon enough to justify the price and weight of the cowon? Thanks
