The device looks nice and looks even nicer than any MP3 player even the Ipod touch. I still like Ipod wheel though, still think they are the best. But, who cares when you get best sound quality and bass at the same time. One thing Cowon failed to master is the touch screen. It's terrible. Terrible terrible terrible. I actually use my 3DS pen to choose tracks. It recognize your finger when clicking on anything, but try sliding the screen, it's a torture. Thats why I use a pen on the screen. Remember when touch screens were released on different devices? Unresponsive. That's how it feels with the X9. It's just the sliding that's all.
Pros: Sound quality, bass, best looking MP3 player, different modes (EQ), battery life
Cons: touch screen (sliding) errrrr
The UI is useable but not perfect, and the screen is partly to blame for it because it is resistive touch. The resistive touch has a suspended layer that you essentially push into and while its responsive 90% of the time once in a while touching the corner doesn't work, which is where the menu button to exit applications are and to go back to the music listings while in the music application. Also since the cowon x9 is a little bit bigger than other mp3 pushing the music listing button is harder than it should be one handed because it is in the upper left hand corner.
Other than that it has a great battery life, i only have to charge it every 2 weeks and i use it everyday. I have yet to have any software issues or crashes and the build quality is excellent. I would recommend getting this, but i advise the 32 gb version because you will be switching less sd cards if you have alot of music like me. I would also highly advise this over ipod if you value sound quality at all.
-Tough. Tough. Tough. Tough little player. I've dropped, smacked, and beaten this thing without remorse. I've had Zunes that didn't last as long as this little baby. If you're hard on your gear, this is for you.
-Battery life. I'd go for 4 or 5 days at a time with 6-7 hours a day (minimum) with this thing playing and it would have juice to spare.
-File architecture. Even after 3 years of use, I'm still caught off by the way the player natively sorts and organises music. It's not the most efficient system and will lump items together based on the first letter regardless of whether or not that's a "throwaway" ("a," "the," an," etc.).
-Reaction speed. It's a little slow. Don't expect this to be the fastest player on the market. It can take a second or two for it to respond. Especially when it gets full.
-Touchscreen. The touchscreen isn't the greatest. Even after calibrations, it would still mistake where I was pressing and how hard. People borrowing it would often complain about this.
-The Zune had an ability to add to and create your "Now Playing" list on the fly. I've never seen it in any other player and would have loved to have seen it here, but it was not to be.
Overall this is a rock solid player and I could not be happier with it. I have to take off one star because of the aforementioned cons, but besides those it was a great player.
