Beauty & Brains.
For those of you who own fancy 4.3" superphones and would like a pmp player with an emphasis on exceptional audio quality akin to nirvana, the Cowon C2 delivers. With its elegant and beautiful design, the Cowon C2 fills the void left behind by its elder sibling, the premium D3. While the D3 flamboyantly poses as a more rich and capable video pmp, the C2 caters to those who would prefer the eargasmic audio performance of the D3 without the extra bells and whistles.
The design is phenomenally minimal. While in black the C2 appears smart, the white is truly beautiful to behold. Clearly the C2 looks more premium than its price. Cowon has done a fantastic job indeed.
Perhaps what tugs the heart of audiophiles is the C2's own heart -audio performance. The C2 performs beyond the likes of Apple's premium flagship the iPod Touch by a mile and that is no exaggeration. If a comet were to pass precariously close to earth and leave all astounded in its brilliance and glory the iPod touch would be that comet -all looks and utterly pointless. Where as the C2 would be akin to the sun in its audio performance -scorching and fearsome, majestic and true. Overshadowing the comet any day.
Comets and Suns aside, pair the C2 with equally good earphones, and revel in the glory of music beyond description. I need not go into the technical details and bore you, rather an emphasis on the C2 as the most talented pmp this side of the universe should suffice as the only thing you need to know period.
As a closing note to a stellar product, a reminder that the C2 has an astounding battery life.
Seriously, with C2 being the beauty with brains -what more could you want?
