Cowon iAudio E2 4 GB MP3 Player (Black) Price: Rs.2976

Key Features

  • MP3 Player
  • 4 GB Memory
  • 10 hrs Audio Playback
  • USB-based Charging
The Cowon E2 is a portable media player that combines a stylish wearable design with powerful sound capabilities. The E2 is designed for extreme portability and features a convenient Voice Guided Menu interface that helps you quickly switch between sound enhancements and turn on/off shuffle mode. Despite its petite chassis, the Cowon E2 packs quite a punch when it comes to sheer acoustic prowess. The MP3 player impresses with its rich and detailed sound signature across a wide frequency spectrum.

Design

The Cowon E2 sports a key ring shaped form factor and is designed to be worn around neck. The semi-circular edge of the ring is juxtaposed cleanly into the straight edge of the player, giving a classy minimalist feel.

Battery and Storage

The Cowon E2 is powered by a USB-rechargeable Lithium-Ion Polymer battery. The battery takes 1.5 hours for a full recharge and should you get through 10 hours of continuous music playback. The 4 GB of in-built memory allows you to store 500 songs (approx).

Functions

The Ear SAFE Technology in the Cowon E2 restores the volume level to the middle range when you switch on the device. This prevents any damage to your hearing as a result of sudden spike in volume. Cowon has long been the music player of choice in the audiophile circles because of the impressive range of sound enhancements the Korean firm manages to cram into their music players.

The Cowon E2 offers a total of 8 JetEffect audio enhancements (BBE, BBE VIVA, BBE VIVA2, BBE Mach3Bass, BBE MP, BBE Headphone, BBE Headphone2 and BBE Headphone3) to optimize the music to your preference. The enhancements make a striking difference to the audio signature; from powerful bass boost, warmer mid-range to highly defined vocals. The Cowon E2 plays lossless audio format like FLAC and Ogg in addition to the usual MP3, WMA and WAV formats. If it is sheer sound quality that you are after and willing to forego other bells and whistles, the Cowon E2 would not disappoint.

Perhaps the best sounding MP3 player around..

Pros- I did a lot of research and read many reviews before deciding to buy the Cowon iAudio E2. And let me tell you one thing - Cowon players are among the MP3 players with the BEST sound quality. I was amazed at the CLARITY & RICHNESS of the songs I listened to. The earphones too are extremely good...for a change when I plugged in my Transcend MP3 player's earphones into it, the sound seemed so dull! And I get much better sound on my PC when I use Cowon's earphones.

I can hear every little detail and note of sound...I can't describe the experience. Better than Sony..better than Apple..and better than Sandisk.

Cons - There's no clip, no FM, and no voice recording. All you get is great sound. If you're undecided between this and the iPod, go for this one. Every review I've read says that the E2 sounds better than the iPod. Rest upto you. Cheers!

For listeners.

This MP3 player is only for those who are capable of listening without being restless. It ain't got a screen nor a hold button to keep away your mistakes but it's got sound quality none like other. I'm very much satisfied with it. I have had my share of experience with couple of MP3 players but nothing comes near to this one. I definitely know that i don't have extraordinary ears to tell the difference. I got to listen to it today and it is quite easy for anyone to make the distinction or even to draw benchmark with Apple Ipod's dominance. Like the other I indulge in heavy browsing of it's reviews and all of them gave thumbs up on the sound quality.
In detail, the BBE equalizer is unbeatable. It echoes through like you are in a theater. The resonance it gives out will remain inside your head till you hear every string of a guitar (if you know how to play guitar then this player will definitely help you more in learning the missing keys or strokes). There are about 4-5 BBE presets. The normal preset is very normal and misses bass like any other player out there. It's only when you switch to BBEs that allows to be content and relax. The BBE bass is beautiful. I love bass and almost everybody does and it doesn't disappoint at all.
I will be burning the earphones and the player for some hours. Hope that it will be loyal for times to come.
Last but not the least, a big round of applause for Flipkart for their tremendous liability (but i'm yet to receive my Senheisser headphones). Keep up the good work.
Warning: The buttons are horrible. My playlist is not so dynamic therefore i don't press anything much.

Awesome Music Player for Under Rs.3000

This little music player produces amazing sound quality. The sound produced by this player is much much better than any of its counterparts at this price range. The bundled headphones are also good, better than any bundled earphones provided at this price range. But with Sennheiser or Klipsch or any high quality earphones this music player will blow your mind off. This music player is worth buying, for music lovers for sure.

Comparision with Apple iPod.

iPods are not bad at all, of course. But neither are Cowons. But personally I felt music in its most truest form in Cowon than in iPods. I listen to Heavy Metal. Heavy Metal feel produced on this player is magnificent. Sound balance is much much much better in Cowon than in Apple. People at Cowon had put lot into the research before producing such a wonderful sound processor. With high end earphones the Cowon will beat Apple with a huge margin.
But at the end, it comes down to personal preferences.

If you are a music lover/audiophile and want your music to be true, balanced, original, best in its form, close your eyes and GO for Cowon.

If you are gadget freak, who prefers the brand image, who wants to own the music player which millions of people own, Apple is there for you !!

Sony B162F v/s Cowon E2

I have the Sony B162F and called one one my friends who owns a Cowon E2 to my home. We could conclude the following:

Sound:
I used to think my Sony has the best sound. But I was taken aback when I plugged in the E2 earphones. Simply outstanding. The same track now sounded mediocre when I switched back to B162F. Genres like Hip-Hop, Punjabi, Rap sounded better on the B162F. Rock, Pop, Metal, Vocals, and everything else sounded awesome on the E2. Also, both sound better than the shuffle.
The E2 wins by leaps and bounds.

Battery:
I get nearly 15-16hrs of backup on my B162F. My friend said he gets around 10hrs on his E2.
Sony wins this department. Also, Sony charges much faster than the E2.

Looks:
The E2 looks trendy, while the B162F looks tangy.
The E2 lacks a display, but it has a voice interface which suffices well. And it is very sturdy, sure to last longer.
I would still go with Sony.

Price:
The E2 is priced Rs550 more than the B162F. That's because of the additional 2GB. Both players are fairly priced. Now, if you look at the GoGear 2GB or the MP330, they are much cheaper options, but you end up buying an earphone replacement as they don't sound very good. I won't say they are bad either.

Overall verdict:
E2 wins no doubt. But the B162F still has some features which will put you in a fix. Like the amazingly fast charging, the tangy lights, and it has a display!
But if you can compromise on these, E2 should be yours.

Superb player but with flaws

Pros
1. Amazing sound quality -- combine it with a pair of good headphones and experience ecstasy
2. Small and Light with good build quality
3. Charges fast, USB adapter ensures no need for an extra charger.
4. Auto switch off when headphones not plugged in.
5. A ton of BBE settings... I found BBE headphones really suitable. Base freaks will love BBE base.

Cons
1. Symmetrical!! Both sides are exactly the same -- meaning you wont know which is the volume rocker and which is skip next/back without actually looking at the device. This is a huge design flaw. People with poor eyesight or going for jogging with it without taking their glasses will suffer.
2. Very unique power/data adapter(3.5mm jack to USB).. which you will need to carry with you, and have a high chance of losing. I would have liked it if it was micro-usb as most people have a micro-usb charger for their phones (sorry apple fans).
3. Headphones provided are useless -- should have made it optional.

But hey, you can't have everything. Overall its a great product, the music part is just brilliant. A big thumbs up.
