With other notable features like FM Radio, Calculator, Stopwatch and Alarm Clock, the device can be more than your regular music player, serving a multitude of functions.

Design

The Cowon music player has a compact design, with dimensions of 53 x 78.7 x 12.8 mm and weighing just 84 g. The C2 MP3 player has a metal chassis, with curved edges along the screen, which together give it a visually appealing design and rigid build. The 2.6-inch LCD screen shows off videos and images in 320 x 240 pixels resolution. You can navigate the menu on this resistive touchscreen with simple swipes of your finger.

When held horizontally, the left edge of the Cowon C2 houses the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The USB/AV port and the microSD card slot are tucked on the right, covered by a flap that protects these slots from dust. To the top edge of the screen are the other control buttons that include the power/hold button, the menu button, the volume rocker and the microphone input.

Battery and Storage

The Cowon C2 comes with a built-in storage capacity of 4 GB, which can be extended up to 32 GB using a microSD card. The MP3 player is powered by a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery that can be charged by either USB cable connected to PC or plug-in adapter.

While USB charging takes the battery to fully recharge in 4.5 hours, with the adapter the time to recharge is just 2.5 hours. Once charged fully, the battery of the C2 PMP can give audio playback time of 55 hours and 10 hours of video playback.

Functions

The C2 MP3 player supports various audio (MP3, WMA, FLAC, OGG, APE, WAV) and video (AVI, WMV, ASF) formats that save you from the hassle of file conversion. The photo viewer of the music player shows high resolution JPG format pictures.

The built-in speaker of the Cowon PMP lets you play the music and videos loud with a frequency range of 1 KHz - 20 KHz. The stereo headphone bundled with the C2 music player has maximum power output of 29 mW + 29 mW and 95 dB of signal to noise ratio, giving you distortion free sound.

The Cowon C2 comes with 8 preset equalizers - Normal, Rock, Jazz, Classic, Pop, Vocal, Metal and User - which you can use to match the sound quality to the genre of music being played. You can connect the C2 player to a PC or laptop for transferring songs, videos and images. The drag and drop feature helps you transfer content easily and quickly to your MP3 player.

The Cowon PMP is compatible with PC/laptop with Pentium III, 500 MHz processor or higher and Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000 or ME, Mac 10.X and Linux v 2.4 or later operating systems.

A compromised Cowon

Credentials: Owned a Cowon D2 and S9 for 1.5 years each, and C2 for 6 months. Own(ed) a variety of earphones - Sennheiser, Klipsch and Grado as well. Wrote a decently received piece on recommended audio products on a blog once.

==

I lost my beloved Cowon S9 (and my right femur, but that's another story) in a car crash. Desperately needed a player to get me by in hospital and recuperation and didn't have too much money so opted for the C2 in the hope that the sound quality would remain the same, if not the construction.

Well, the C2 met that requirement pretty well.

The Cowon C2 has stellar sound quality. It's got excellent customization options for the equalizer, and plenty of presets that don't ruin the music. The bass effect, for one, doesn't sound artificial. It plays FLAC - the reason why I was sold onto Cowon in 2008 and remain loyal (even though most players these days do) and video wise can handle any format thrown at it.

So, yeah, if you're looking for a PMP at low cost but need stellar audio quality, the C2 is a great option. I bought a 4GB version and the case from Cowon's official India site, and got a couple of 16GB cards as well, and it worked out nicely, under INR 10000.

Now, the bad part - the UI. I've never been a fan of Cowon's UI but considered myself one of the as-long-as-it-produces-great-sound-I-care-bollocks-about-not-as-easy-as-iPhone-experience, proudly. My previous players, the D2 and S9, were amazing players with mediocre UIs. But I loved them, and still consider the S9 one of the best players in the market.

But oh, Cowon C2. The UI that could be given as a test at Google. "Figure out how to change equaliser settings on this in less than 3 minutes and we'll give you the job". The C2 has the most annoying feature I've seen in any UI - a stylized vinyl version of the cower art (with grooves!) spinning! Not only does it look pixelated, but very gimmicky and distracting.

Then there are the unnecessary screens when you switch the player on, like 'Siesta Time' or 'Happy memories' or 'Thinking of you'. I mean, THINKING OF YOU. Not what you need when you're going to listen to Symphony X. The UI is terribly hard to navigate. It took me three days to figure out how to get to the file browsing system. THREE DAYS. And there was no help in the supplied manual, either.

Then there are frequent freezes. A pet peeve being - after charging, when you remove the player, it sometimes still shows 'battery charging' and refuses to move to play mode. The lack of a reset button makes things all the more annoying.

So, summing up:

PROS:

1. Cowon's stellar audio quality
2. Audio customization options and presets
3. Can handle any format thrown at it - audio and video
4. Good construction - all said and done, it's a good LOOKING player.
5. microSD card slot - the only thing the Cowon S9 lacked.

CONS:

1. PATHETIC user interface. Difficult to learn and use.
2. Frequent freezes, exacerbated by next point.
3. Lack of a reset button
4. Nothing great about bundled earphones (no surprise there)
5. Gimmicky (cheesy wallpapers, spinning LP during playing)
6. No track info available: So if you spent hours tagging your collection, the C2 will render that useless since all you'll see is song name, artist name and album name. Not even the bitrate.
7. Button placement : I might be nitpicking, but the buttons are slightly difficult to use in the dark. The S9 was very easy, buttons were distinct and well laid out. Here, the power, menu, v , v- buttons are all in one depressed line, which makes finding the right button a wee bit tedious.

NEITHER PRO NOR CON:

1. A speaker. It's loud enough, but I find it rather useless.

All in all, its great sound quality at a cheap price vs a terrible UI. Looking back, I should have just bought a J3 on EMI, in retrospect. Anyhow, it works and provides great sound, with my Klipsch S4 or Grado SR325.

Its spectacular

I own this baby for the past 5 months , and i have to say i ve been impressed .

I ordered this through flipkart and it was delivered in 3 straight days , hats off to them .

Well i have owned a couple of mp3 players in the past ( ipod , a samsung q1) , but i have to say this is one of the finest choices i ve made :)

The UI is not that worst , you just have to get used to it . And firmware updates will make it easier to use

Cowon are known for the sound quality , and i d say this device is a killer device . It looks so cute and tiny but i ve got to say that the sound it delivers would put a lot of mp3 players to shame .

It has got so many equalizers that you can use . Yes , the headphones are a bit of a turnoff so if you could invest in a good pair of headphones , then it would just enhance the experience .

Its got a lot of features such a video , flash , text files , pictures etc etc etc , but if you are looking at sound quality , then this is your device .

I know that Cowon is not a household name , but after having used one of their products , i am sure that if i ll be buying any other mp3 player in the near future , i am sure that this is the company that i d turn to .

In Short , sweet and spectacular and a pleasure to the ears .

Handy, Customizable Music, and Good Quality Music

I am reviewing after 3 months form purchase....

First of all, flipkart.com is a best site for online sale in India. i purchased it with very low cost over the market. flipkart delivery and customer care support is awesome.

NO, about this player...

Look and Feel :
---------------
first i afraid about the size. but it too handy. nice look, nice plastic and steel mount. the product looks good. but its steel surface may scratches soon. so, i bought the leather case, which protects better.
i can give 4/5 rating for Look & Feel

UI Related :
---------------
this what little disappointing me. its UI looks good. but the background color not good. UI design is not in smart way. its not fallowing proper order for navigation. some times upward, downward.... really its so much of confusing. i using since last three months but still i am some times confusing.
there is need lot of improvements in UI (for example, there is no file delete option, the search functionality is not working)

Resistive touch is another drawback, but in resistive touch way, its touch functionality is some better than other resistive touches.
i can give 2/5 rating for UI

Music :
----------
This is the big advantage of COWON. i am a big music lover, i need the good quality and more customizable tuning. its sound quality is mind blowing. awesome quality of music than others. even its better than iPod touch(for quality of music). its BBE & BBE+ are giving clear sound. its supporting most of audio codecs formats.
the bundled ear phones also good. not that much of bad. its giving clear voice with some kind bass effect.

i can give 5/5 rating for MUSIC

Video :
----------
i agree that it is a full featured music player with basic video ability. but the screen quality of video is good. its supporting to .avi format which gives comfortable. but the drawback is we need the JetAudio software for video compressing to support the player.

i can give 3/5 rating for VIDEO

Other Features :
------------------
the features of this player is also good, mostly it support the external micro SD cards up-to 32gb
the drawback is its doesn't have the Bluetooth.

i can give 4/5 rating for Features

Finally i am concern its price, and its quality.... i am recommending that, if you are a music lover, and you need the great player for great quality of music, then go for it. but if you need more than music, then go for else.

so finally i am giving 4/5 to concern it music quality and its price range.

Beware readers and interested buyers!! Its that much good!

I bought c2 from flipkart last yr around November for 6.5k. It took some time for thm to deliver thm due transporting it from mumbai to delhi to kolkata to my place! Took around 10-11days! But the packing was just awesome..thumbs up FC for such a nice packaging.
Now the player. As the title suggests. Beware! Whoever reading this review must hv gone through numerous review of this product on other sites. And yeah they r mostly true..if u get a taste of cowon (wth decent hdphn offcrs,not the bundled one) and their renowned eq settings,whtever smartphone u wr using beforehnd as ur musicplayer gets the retirement!! Its just sounds that much FANTASTIC!! I use Ultimate ear 200, soundmagic es18, Sennheiser hd239 and each of thm sound amazing wth this little piece of powerful audio marvel. I love the clarity n separation it introduces in the music specially the instrumental ones. I ws using htc one v (wth Beats audio,an advertisemnt setting only),Ipad mini and philips gogear mp3 player as my portable player before purchasing c2,and now i just cant use thm anymore they sound so pathetic to my spoiled cowon-addicted ears now!!
Another thing, it got microsd card card slot tht ws so important for cheap upgradation of memory to carry my huge library on the go.
Also Battery life is phenomenol. Never bothered bout its charge for atleast another week after charging it once.
So as summary, if u are planning for a good mp3 player and fearless enough to leave ur smartphone fr music listening,go for it. Its just fantastic!! U will lough at the iPod or Smartphone-music users around u once u get a taste of the excellent n unmatched sound quality of Cowon!!

Great Value for Money..

Overall a great buy. Music Quality is at par or better than most Quality Audio playing devices available at higher prices points. Here are my findings.

Pros
- Great Music Quality. This is the single most reason why I bought the Cowon C2. About 30 predefined EQ settings and 4 User defined Settings. It’s a treat for Audiophiles.
- Comes with Jet Effects 3 which enhances music especially mp3 (lossy compression).  BBE MP and BBE Mach3Bass sound enhancements is a great plus factor.
- Supports almost all Audio Codecs.
- Battery Life is very good. Currently I get at least 40+ hours of continuous music time on a single charge. Which is good enough for me.
- Extensible storage feature through provision of Micro SD slot card over and above the 4GB inbuilt storage . Upgradable up to 32 GB.
- Loudness. With a good pair of speaker only half of the max volume setting is loud enough . It can easily power any earphone.
- Overall build quality is good. Looks rugged.

Cons:
- UI needs time to be figured out. Very Unintuitive. I had a tough time figuring out how to set the User defined EQ. Finally searched on the net to get to it. Returning back to the earlier screen is a pain.
- The Data transport cable provided has a proprietary interface. Tough to procure a spare one if this one is damaged or lost.
- Design of the flap covering the USB port is such that it comes in the way while inserting the data cable. Inserting and removing the cable from the device is also tough. At times I though I might damage the port.
- Screen size too small to enjoy Videos. Video needs to converted to a lower grade to view it.
- The Chrome metal back scratches easily. Ensure that a scratch guard of equivalent size is bought and stuck on.
- Lack of Playlist facility. Its an issue when you already have a big collection of playlists.

4 stars. One point deducted for the 'Cons' stated above.
Overall a great buy.
