Cowon X7 PMP review

 

We figured Cowon's X7 wouldn't bother passing through the FCC's loose fingertips if it weren't planning on making a stateside debut at some point, and

Insane battery life ; Very capacious ; World-beating audio quality

Low-resolution display ; No bells, whistles, or apps ; Proprietary connector

COWON X7

 

The COWON X7 is a MP4 player that doesn't make you choose between movies and music. The large screen and abundant storage capacity clearly show that this device is made for watching movies. On the other hand, the premium audio quality lets you listen...

It has a large screen, long-lasting battery, massive drive space and tons of features

We wish this MP4 player had a higher screen resolution

This product was made specifically with movie watching in mind.

Cowon X7 - A Costly Mistake

 

When the Cowon X7 was announced, a certain group of people finally had their prayers answered. There is no doubt Cowon instills the most confidence in audiophiles - matched only by a very select few like Sansa (post-rockboxing) – and their latest...

The Cowon X7 is a huge disappointment. Its massive storage capacity and amazing battery life coupled with FLAC support and stellar audio quality makes it a great device for audiophiles, but its negatives far outweigh the positives. A poor UI, a...

Cowon X7

 

The Cowon X7 is a media player with a big body and even bigger storage.

Huge Storage Capacity, Extensive format support, Superb sound quality

It's massive!, Screen quality isn't that great, Interface is a bit clunky, App support limited

Cowon X7 review

 

When it was announced last year, Cowon's X7 touchscreen media player was set to be an Android device, with all the advantages and support associated with Google's mobile operating system. Unfortunately, the promise of Android never materialised, and...

The X7 isn't as pretty or as glossy as some of its rivals, but if you want a big, good-quality screen, great sound and an unfeasibly massive battery life, this is the media player for you.

Cowon X7

 

In its X7, Cowon has produced a video player with the ability to rival Apple's finest. It's easy to use, looks good and sounds superb

Great sound from all file types ; easy to use ; bass weight

Screen lacks some detail and resolution

Cowon X7 Review

 

The X7 is a bit of a disaster

Plenty of storage space, great audio quality, built-in loudspeaker, Bluetooth wireless headphone support, great audio format support, phenomenal battery life

Thick, bulky design, unimpressive display, no HD video playback, oddly placed controls, unintuitive UI, poor video format support, slow image gallery, proprietary USB cable, low max volume, FAT32 formatting restricts file transfers over 4GB

Even better than my J3

 

Whilst the J3 is excellent the memory size doesnt come close. This device has massive battery life, the BEST sound quality and it also supports almost every file type I throw at it.
