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.


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).


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:

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Better than I pod screenless mp3 player....

I got my player within 48 hours, thanks flipkart, i decided to go with Cowon after reading reviews on Flipkart.
The player comes in a triangular packaging.You get a 3.5 mm connecter to USB connector, headphones and e2....
The player is well built looks cool. After copying my collection of songs of all the genres. It was time to hear this mini giant.
The first thing which i noticed was details....may it be a classical song or heavy metal, sound was produced in details.
BBE adds juice to the audio, but at normal some tracks sound better. The default headphones are good, they produced clean sound with good base and heights. But the player deserves better headphones as with default headphones sound distorts at high volumes, specially when BBE MACH 3 BASE is active. The player can be used with good headphones to make it Audiophile's device...The jump from folder option works great and it makes this player a great buy...
The player is for those who want audiophile quality sound at
reasonable price. I must say this is a player which has immense power to draw any high quality headphone from AKG, SURE or SENNHEISER to make it a complete buy.......
Grab one and listen your favorite tracks on the go......

Best player of this price range

So I ordered COWON e2 black on 20th and got this 3 days later.
I'm quite happy to choose COWON e2 over sony b series walkman and apple shuffle.
its built very nice and sleek and looks like it can take some heavy bumps.
Sound quality is just epic, bbe effect is totally awesome and you can change that by just 1 button (unlike in apple shuffle where you have to change it through itunes)
It supports MP3, MP2, MP1, WMA, OGG, WAV and FLAC. AAC is missing but you can't complain since sony b series walkman only supports mp3 and wav.
the earphones that come with COWON e2 aren't bad at all & they do provide crystal clear sound with good enough bass but COWON e2 sounds much better when you use a good pair of earphones.
Now it comes with firmware upgrade which lets us skip folders too(press forward once then again press and hold Fwd quickly and the sound of water drop indicates you went to next folder, do same with rewind for previous).
Overall the best music player at this price Range and a must buy for all music lovers :)

Sound Quality is a Plus and Battery is a Minus

This is a great looking, awesome sounding, small piece of mp3s playing machine. I am currently using it and my review as follows:

Looks: Stunning looks. I own a white one. It has a matt finish. (5/5)

Design: Design is great. You can hide inside your pockets, hang as a key chain, or hang in one of your fingers while you walk. You have to slightly be careful with the edges. Suseptable to damage. (4/5)

Buttons: Buttons are too small to handle. You will always go confused with either increasing the sound vs. changing the song... or switching off vs. changing the sound mode. (2/5)

Swith on/off mode: You will again go confused whether your player is on or off. The lights are so small that it is not visible. (2/5)

Battery: Battery is a total waste. After 3 months, it doesn't even last for 3 hours playing over 3 days. It requires frequent charging to listen up to 6 hours. So if you are someone who listen to music for >4 hours a day and lazy to charge every day, avoid buying this. (1/5)

Sound quality: Needless to say, other reviews talk about it. Its awesome. (5/5)

Overall, 3k on this device is affordable, however, you can try out the other products of Cowon. If you are audio lover, go for D+.

Black Magic!!

Well, to start with I didnt knew about the fact that Cowon even exists---
there's a dear friend from whom I make sure I take all the gadget related suggestions--I do look forward for his word of advice--and just asked him I wanted a new MP3, to disclose how bad I am with gadgets-- I have damaged a shuffle--a creative mp3 rots in my drawer--and so just wanted something steady--
Well dee adviced for a Cowon--sounded like some syllables that moment but jeeeeeez---a look is enough to fall in love with what they offer--
the korean mp3 and music giant has an array of amazing mp3s---they may be expensive but since I have one now.... are simply worth it!!
The jet Black Cowon iAudio E2 4GB is surely a musical delight on the go---it just got delivered 2 days back and I am loving it...
The BBE feature is awesome with voice guidance, so u chose what mode you want to listen too-- while hearing you can actually differentiate the drums, beats, bass, guitar, flute and ofcourse the voice---just way too awesome when it comes to sound quality--
and plus it is way too cool on the coolness quotient, wear it like a ring, or a neckpiece---looks perfecto!!
Thanks dee and Flipkart--
Hoping to buy the 160 GB Cowon in the near future--!!

Pretty Chick ;)

>Lightest in its class
>Looooong Battery Life
>Beautiful and Compact Design
>Easy to use(Synch Songs *)
>4Gigs for 2.9 Grands
>the Output is All good but with the Cowon earphones does not pack a Punch... i'm using my Philips
>Easy Mode settings and Master Reset
>Buttons seem to be Sturdy and Lasting...also Pretty Responsive to Touch

>No Display
>while playing on High Volume with enhanced Bass.. it ends up becoming Noise rather than MusiQ
>Manual Equalizer's Missing.. only Preset ones are available
>all the Activities of the Player are Shown over a Small LED with Red and Green Color Code.... Problem is that its soooo small that checking the lights becomes a problem
>Casing is Plastic except for the Ring(Metal)... so rather be careful at times...
>No Synching Software ! so its prone to crashes and virus attacks if not taken care .... also as there is no S/W....Firmware upgrade is a messy process...

Overall ...... its a product that stands up to the Money Spent !,Score - 4.5 On 5
