Imagine, you’ve gone round to a mates house with your favourite movies saved on your S9 in DVD quality. I was a little bit iffy with the jack, as I prefer it to be on top of the player as opposed to the bottom but the presence of tactile bottoms on top of the player was a big plus, and perfect for blind operation. Only annoying things for me are when operating the physical buttons it is quite easy to accidentally move the button at the opposite end of the unit and the lack of a direct line out in audio mode. Otherwise, the Cowon is superb. One person found this helpful. Excellent sound quality, especially when compared to Apple’s offerings. The one you’ve been waiting for.

On the same ocwon edge of the player you’ll find a track-skip switch also duplicated onscreen and a volume switch. I have made this point on a cowon discussion board and lets hope cowon addresses this issue.


There’s a problem loading this menu at the moment. Ironically it was also one of the reasons why Bluetoooth bought the S9 — the incredible tweakability and customization.

An age old hangup with gold I expect!!. Image Unavailable Image not available for Colour: Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic.

After 34hrs of continuous playback I switched the thing off, 34hrs was fine with me, bearing in mind that at the point that I switched it off, it still had a quarter battery left, so I would say that it’s about hrs per quarter battery. Speaking of which, creating play lists also seems to require some sort of higher degree in engineering. I love the size, the set-up, the weight, the simplicity of it.

The S9 has bluetooth but no wifi. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. I also updated the firmware to the latest release 2. The Bottom Line The Cowon S9 is a sexy-looking gadget with exceptional audio and coson quality, but its construction quality and user interface pale in comparison to the competition. The box of the S9 is definitely a sight to behold — clean, elegant, minimalistic. This means the screen is sharper, pixel for pixel, much brighter and movement is pin-sharp.

If it were up to us, we’d lose the S9’s play and skip buttons to lessen confusion, because more often than not we brushed the play button accidentally or hit track skip when we meant to turn up the volume. Please make sure that you’ve entered a valid question. One thing to bear in mind is to get that kind of battery life it has to be on some basic settings, it’s still good in my humble opinion.

For example, in order to fit controls for shuffle modes, song repeat, play and pause, skip, A-B loop, EQ, and tilt-sensor lock onto the S9’s music playback screen, Cowon used a control strip across the bottom of bluetioth screen that flips around to reveal a second set of controls.

A 64GB S9 would have run the iPod touch out of town but it seems every company, however good they may be, suffers from an inferiority complex and only wants to follow where the iPod leads.
