4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product with some cons, November 21, 2007
This review is from: Cowon iAUDIO 7 Portable 8 GB MP3 Player (Red) (Electronics)
I will not be covering what others have already written. Rather, I will give my perspective from a guy who owns a few brands of players (Creative Vision W, Creative Zen, Ipod Classic, ipod nano) and has a week of use with this player.

The good:
i) The best sounding player I ever had. The EQ is very good but even with a flat EQ, they trump both the Ipods and Creatives.
ii) Amazing battery life
iii) Powerful amp - It drives my Sennheiser HD555 superbly.
iv) Just-right form factor. I like this size. I find the ipod nano way too small to be comfortable.

The bad:
i) User interface is iffy at best. It is almost impossible to use the player on the run without the hold button on because the touch interface is super sensitive, even at the low setting. That said, if you customize the hold setting to enable you to use the volume buttons as forward and back buttons when hold is set to on, the player works well (but you can't change volume on the run then...).

Conclusion:
If you care about sound like I do, get this player. If you care more about user interface, get a creative. I can't recommend ipods for anymore as I find them too expensive, I hate itunes, and I hate DRM music.

Yes... you can't chg the volume, but the aggravating thing
is when chging to next song, it would sure be nice if the display
would light up for a few seconds so you could see the file you
were playing.

I sent mine back after using it for a couple of days.
