COWON S9 PDF

Korean company Cowon has been quietly but doggedly chasing the MP3 market leaders for years now, and this S9 is its most stylish and sophisticated player to date. It's big to handle, but it's very lightweight. In fact, the feel of the unit doesn't match the luxurious looks or premium price-tag; instead it feels a little plasticky and insubstantial. The S9 has a touchscreen interface, but it's not as sophisticated as that on the similar Samsung player, with less natural flicking and scrolling. It is, in fact, a rather difficult machine to use all-round, thanks to Cowon's preference for customisability over usability: as soon as you leave the S9's home screen you're confronted with an abundance of indecipherable icons.

One disappointing absence is iPlayer compatibility, but the list is otherwise comprehensive. It's worth noting that the player works well with Windows Media Player, but can also be filled up using simple drag-and-drop. New 'phones won't fix everything The headphones aren't quite as nasty as they look, but they're not far off, producing a rather harsh and thin delivery. Uncompressed FLACs are equally stodgy, despite decent detail levels overall. Videos fair much better, thanks to a 3.

This tech sees the pixels themselves emitting light, theoretically increasing contrast levels and response time. It works well here, as the S9 produces a brilliantly punchy, sharp and vibrant picture, with very solid motion and decent black depth for a device of this type. Oh, and the built-in accelerometer means you only have to turn the player on its side for the picture to rotate and take advantage of the genuine aspect ratio.

The problem is that if you're in the market for a small capacity player, music is likely to be your priority, and the S9 doesn't quite cut it in this department. And if you're really after a portable movie player, Apple's Touch does it better for similar money. What Hi-Fi? Please deactivate your ad blocker in order to see our subscription offer.

Cowon S9 review

On paper, Cowon's S9 is distinct from what most would consider its rivals. It packs a curvaceous design, nary a single front panel button, an AMOLED display and a codec support list chock full of formats that audiophiles admire. Clearly, Cowon is aiming to appeal to portable media enthusiasts who are also sticklers for sound quality, with the core functionality consisting of only the basics that one would expect on a PMP. The sector it's diving into already has a pretty strong list of alternatives on the market, which probably means that you're wondering if it really does or doesn't stack up. Follow us past the break as we take a closer look at what the S9 brings and doesn't bring to the table.

Cowon iAudio S9 Review

When it comes to portable media players, there's one manufacturer every other aims for - Apple. Its players continue to set the standard for ease of use, design and sheer desirability, but despite banging on the door repeatedly, most haven't managed to break it down. Cowon's S9 is the latest to try, and it makes a good first impression. It's as desirable as a portable media player is likely to get, with sleek, curvy lines and a super-sensitive capacitive touchscreen, just like the iPod touch.
