The J3 player is fitted with a G-Sensor for auto rotation of the screen.
The right edge of the Cowon player features the play/pause button, the forward/back track keys and the volume rocker. The left side houses the power key that also acts as the lock key.

Cowon is not that famous a company, sounds cheap almost, but google them a bit and you will realize how wrong you are to underestimate this Korean company which specializes ONLY in audio and how to deliver the best quality
The Cowon J3 is an excellent media player which is targeted at a very narrow audience...audiophiles and those who want a plain simple dedicated media player, and not one with the bells and whistles like app support and wifi, gps etc, for that you should buy a smartphone!:p. However having used this for the past 2 months i can say the audio and video quality is drop dead brilliant! its much better than an ipod, trust me!...professional grade components used in this machine deliver to their full potential from the AMOLED screen that produces the most gorgeous blacks and vivid colours to the Wolfson DAC inside that produces deep and powerful bass and guitar chords that are really crisp and clear (i really enjoyed Led Zep's Stairway to Heaven on this one!).The BBE and ClearBass equalizer settings are very useful for those who like to tinker with the equalizer and is a major boost over the ipod which forces you to use non-customizable presets. However significant problems remain, the touchscreen is not very responsive, especially when navigating your music, and the battery doesn't last as long as advertised, but definitely longer than an ipod touch.The screen is also prone to scratches so i'd recommend a protective case with this and last but not the least, the price!....which might i say is a bit too steep for a PMP that was introduced in 2010. For the more casual listeners i would recommend the ipod touch. But it does it job very well.So i'm giving it a 4
Cowon J3 4 GB is the best music player I ever had. I have listened music from Ipod touch, creative x-fi 2 and Transcend MP850. This COWON surpasses every other player that exist in the market in reproducing quality music, particularly when you listen in a good quality headphone. You will hear every single note, every single detail that you missed earlier while listening the same song with other devices. Surely you will hate to listen music from any other device once you listen in this.
Folder wise and tag wise music play modes
Large array of effect settings with Jet Effects 3.0
Excellent reproduction of music
Gives life to the details lost during compression
The USB cable is proprietary one (can't use alternates)
The jack inserting in the device needs a hard push. ( I was a bit upset when it was not going in completely, but later found out the way)
If your priority is only quality music listening and nothing else, then go for it and Welcome to the the audiophile community.
This is the best video and audio player that money can buy. Awesome sound output. Best in class sound clarity. And a big + is the BBE. The equalizer can be customized so much that you can hear it exactly the way you want it. There are multiple modes, for different song types. And the battery backup is also best in class. I can get around 3 days of moderate usage with one whole charge. Only disappointment is the lack of Wi-Fi or other ways to connect and lack of applications. If you're looking for a media player to play games as well. Go for an Apple ITouch. This one here is for the audiophile purists.
1. Best in class sound. Clear, crisp, and Loud.
2. Biggest battery backup you can get for any media player today.
3. The Premium AMOLED screens is the same quality as that of the present day smartphones and such. Damn good for watching videos and movies.
4. Extra Storage expansion using memory card. upto 32Gb additional.
5.Flash applications such as notes and other small games supported. Not much to say. But worth a note.
1. No Wi-fi or other internet connectivity options.
2. Not many applications available in flash.
3. Bundled headphones are not of much value. OK for a starter. But serious audiophiles had better get a better pair of cans. Best if heard with high-end headphones like UE reference monitors or Sennheiser HD800. Sounds so divine.
Altogether : Best media player you can get around the globe. But its no IPod. So dont look for one in this. It is just a audio/video player. Nothing more Nothing less. If you want to listen to music or watch movies on the go. This is for you. If u are not satisfied with just that. You'll have to look elsewhere.
Do not purchase it for it's UI, it is somewhat intuitive but tends to freeze if the wrong files are played, and has to be reset.
One of the best sounding players i have ever heard. Absolutely fantastic, and i speak after having listened on the headphones that come in the package (which are rubbish). Investing in a higher-end pair of headphones will take you on magical musical trips beyond the levels of most other mp3 players.
The AMOLED display is literally brilliant; I haven't seen such rich colours or gorgeous contrast on any player this size. It makes my shitty .avi files look like mini-blu-ray videos.
Most certainly worth a purchase, but remember to upgrade the firmware online at the official Cowon website. The packaged device comes with ver. 2.23, but the latest one is 2.26.
i purchased this player long time ago from flipkart infact it's my first ever mp4 player.Since it had to buy my 1st player so i searched alot of music players n found out that j3 was way ahead in producing quality sound from other players including ipod touch.So i purchased it n when i tried it for the very 1st time i fell in love with it.I was so happy at my decision.N when i watched a video in it i was blown away.U won't beleive wht this thing can do.Ya theres z one thing if u want to enjoy it 2 the fullest i reccomend to high end headphones like skullcandy,senheiser etc..N ya abt the battery backup,charge it once n u won't need to charge it for 5 days..my personal experience.Got for it u won't regret it.
