Cowon iAudio S9

 

If Apple's limited codec support puts you off the iPod touch, the Cowon S9 could be just what you're looking for.

The S9 looks great when lying inert, but even better once you switch the power on. The 3.3in, 16:9 format AMOLED screen is a beauty. The resolution - 480 x 272 - is the same as that of the PSP, and with support for up to 16 million colours it doesn't...

Cowon S9 review

 

Cowon's moving in the right direction with its S9 MP3 player, but it still can't quite match the class leaders

Excellent screen delivers sharp, vibrant pictures ; very good format support ; decent audio detail

Slightly lazy musical delivery ; no iPlayer support ; fiddly to operate

Cowon’s moving in the right direction, but it still can’t quite match the class leaders

Cowon iAudio S9 8GB review

 

You could be forgiven for thinking that Cowon is something of an also-ran in PMP land. Do you, or does anyone you know, own one? But there's a cult following that claims the Koreans make the best-sounding players available – and that means its latest...

The S9 looks a bit like the iPod Touch, but this player is more than just a big screen

Possibly the best-sounding player available and a great buy – if you can handle the price and control quirks

Cowon iAudio S9 8GB review

 

Cowon's iAudio S9 bears an uncanny resemblance to Apple's iPod Touch. Both are portable audio and video players that are controlled using large touchscreens. Despite this, the S9 differs from the Touch in numerous ways.

Cowon S9

 

A credible alternative to the iPod Touch, the Cowon S9 even surpasses it in terms of audio quality.

Superb screen bursting with colours. Audio is excellent.

Looks like it's trying to be an iPod

Cowon S9

 

This 8GB PMP has a capacitive 3.3-inch OLED touchscreen, 3.5mm headphone socket, accelerometer, TV Out, FM radio and stereo Bluetooth. It supports MP3, WMA, FLAC, DivX and XviD playback, measures 106x57x13mm and weighs 77g. The good Dive into the...

You probably can’t afford Sony’s gorgeous OLED telly but this high-class OLED PMP is within almost anyone’s budget. Arguably the best video and audio quality of any media player today, although not the best choice if you’re sitting on a pile of AAC or...
