Cowon D2

 

Cowon provides a wealth of choice where SanDisk sets severe limits: The D2 supports not only MP3, WMA, and secure WMA, but also OGG, FLAC, and even WAV.

Support for all types of media, including lossless audio formats

Not enough built-in memory

The D2 is supremely versatile, it sounds fabulous, and it’s certainly priced right. Oh, what we wouldn’t give to trade its highfalutin touch screen for a simple control wheel and a couple of buttons.

Cowon C2 portable media player review

 

And here you were assuming the tried-and-true PMP was dead. Au contraire. Cowon's not giving up on its dream quite yet, but after the D2 hung around at

Wildly small ; 16GB of inbuilt storage + microSD slot ; World-class audio quality

Ho hum display ; UI navigation can be tricky ; Doesn't use a standard micro-USB plug

Can't beat the audio quality, and it's as cute as a button. Just don't forget to pack Cowon's proprietary charging adapter.

Cowon D2

 

Cowon scores a bulls-eye with its touchscreen-enabled, flash-based PMP.

Beautiful design ; Superb-looking videos ; Intuitive touchscreen interface ; Solid battery life ; Supports Mac and Windows

Limited onboard storage ; Doesn't support online video stores ; Photo rendering a bit slow

Cowon D2

 

The tiny D2 is nothing to write home about, but it does have a few things the iPod nano doesn't--like a 2.5-inch screen and an SD card slot.

Easy to load with music, songs, and video. Lightweight and small. Sharp LCD. Touch screen. Expandable up to 12GB with SD card. TV-out for video playback.

Interface can be annoying. Scroll-bar awkwardly placed. Images take too long to load and render.

Cowon D2 2GB Portable Multimedia Player

 

It may be tiny, but Cowon's new D2 clocks a freakishly-high 52 hours of audio playback time (and 10 hours of video). Its gorgeous 2.5-inch LCD isn't just for

Touch screen navigation works great with included triangular stylus. Incredible sound quality with numerous audio enhancement options. Supports MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC, WAV and APE formats as well as PlaysForSure content. MTP and MSC storage modes....

No video for Mac users; all video must be converted with included PC-only software. Pricey for just 2GB of built-in memory

Cowon C2 Review

 

Enter the newly released C2. As I said, do not try to make sense of Cowon's naming schemes – the C2 is ‘the real D3', so to speak. It actually is still more of a D2 than anything else – basically the same hardware, the same form factor, the same...

Best-in-class BBE sound enhancements, very good sounding hardware EQ ; Gapless audio playback (with properly encoded files) ; Excellent audio codec support, good video codec support ; Undocumented features: supports AAC/MP4/M4A audio, some h264/AAC/MP4...

Outdated low-res TFT screen, sub-par resistive touch response ; Awkward, incoherent/inconsistent user interface, too ‘cute’ looks ; Gimmicky ‘spinning vinyl’ album art ; Sub-par support for playlists and audiobooks ; Video interface lacks pan/scan...

The Cowon C2 is a very good audio player, packed full of features and top notch sound tweaks. It would be a decent video player too, but the low-res 4:3 screen isn’t really up to today’s standards. Resistive touch controls are also a bit dated for...

Cowon iAudio D2 Review

 

The D2 is Cowon's first ultra portable video player and their first foray into the wondrous world of touch screens. Although similar in appearance to the iriver clix, the D2 sports some significant differences under the hood: things usually not found...

If you want the tiniest video player with the best screen quality, battery life, and expandable memory, then look no further. There's nothing that compares to the D2: highly recommended for lovers of near-microscopic gadgets that perform almost like...
