Cowon iAudio 7 Digital Media Player


Cowon makes some of the most interesting digital media players we've laid hands on. The iAudio 7 is no exception, although it won't earn a place in our pantheon of favorites.

Broad file-format support; great sound; innovative features

Display is much too small; no support for WMA Lossless; odd touch-sensitive controls

Cowon dedicated more surface area to the iAudio 7’s touch-sensitive control surface than they did for its display. The screen is surprisingly legible for its size, but our eyes tired quickly while browsing folders displayed at a resolution of just...

Cowon iAudio7


Recent advances in technology allow the compression of enormous amounts of data into tiny packages, and the Cowon iAudio7 is testimony to the fact. Yes, here's a robust little player with a lot of storage space.

Now, if only they could find a way to support Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP compatibility (for the same price of course), I'd have given it a 5-star rating. But nothing's perfect... though this does come close.

Iaudio 7


The Cowon iAudio 7 is a compact, Flash-based player that measures just 3 inches long by 1.4 inches wide (but a chunky 0.7 inches thick), and it weighs only 2.1 ounces. Its tiny 1.3-inch TFT LCD screen responds more quickly than the OLED display of its...

Small, lightweight design Records voice and FM radio

Screen is too small for watching video Average audio quality

Despite its middling audio quality, the Cowon iAudio 7 works well for listening to songs and the radio, and for making occasional audio recordings, but it's too small for video, and you should see if you can master its peculiar controls at a local...

Cowon iAudio 7


Cowon's latest flash-based portable media player, the iAudio 7, certainly looks promising on the surface. There's its sleek black design, interesting button array, and touted powerful output for high-end, power-hungry headphones. Add to this to the...

FM radio. Radio, voice, and line-in recording. Decent file support. Excellent battery life.

Tiny screen, terrible for photos, video. Graphics look out of date. User interface confusing to navigate. Buttons easy to activate accidentally.

Cowon's iAudio 7 flash-memory MP3 player appears promising at first glance, but the magic fades once its lackluster screen turns on.

Editor's Choice!

Cowon iAudio 7 (8GB, red)


The Cowon iAudio 7 is one of the most versatile MP3 players available. It plays music, video, and photos; has unbeatable sound quality; records line-in, voice, and FM; supports OGG and FLAC file formats, plus DRM-protected WMA; works in MTP and MSC...

As tiny as the iAudio 7 is, it's still about three times the width of an iPod Nano. The reflective, glossy plastic found on the front and back of the player is prone to smudges and glare. There's a learning curve to the Swing Touch interface, and we...

The Cowon iAudio 7 beats the industry heavyweight iPod Nano in price, features, battery life, and sound quality. The user interface could use some refinement, but all-in-all this is a very impressive MP3 player.

Cowon iAudio 7 Review


Cowon has updated their i6 by replacing the 0.85" micro hard drive with flash memory and upgraded the battery for long lasting 60 hours of playtime. Adding the flash memory to this device is a big improvement since one of the biggest complaints about...

Sound Quality, Powerful Amp, Very Customizable sound settings, Battery Life, BBE, Full of features, Lots of Audio file support

Unintuitive interface, Overly sensitive touch interface, Awkward Size - Too Thick, WMA recording only, On-the-Go playlists and bookmarks don't work in ID3 Browsing Mode, Weak FM reception

The iAudio 7 has a solid audio codec and feature set that will keep the casual and hardcore users happy. Added to this is a firm build quality. The sound quality is crisp with an even across-the-spectrum response that has the power to drive larger...

Cowon IAudio 7 16GB


Although it's not an iPod, Cowon is no stranger to MP3 players. They have been manufacturing top-of-the line music devices for years that are a good alternative to an iPod and the iAudio 7 is a good start. The battery life is among the best and the...

Although the Cowon iAudio7 is a little bulkier than some from the competition, its versatility and durability make it a good choice for those looking to break away from the shackles of Apple
