Cowon S9 an iPod Toch Killer?

When it comes to personal media player from Cowon nothing does it better than them. Almost all company wants a wager or get piece of that market share the iPod Touch is having right now.

The Cowon S9 features a slick 3.3 inch display compared to the iPod Touch’s 3.5 inch display. It comes to a second place with 8GB and 16GB models unlike with the iPod Touch’s 32GB. The S9 doesn’t even come close with the Touch’s built-in Wi-fFi support compared to the much less Bluetooth support.

There are some areas where in the S9 surely shines out from the rest of its competitors. When it comes to audio quality particularly the BBE+ sound field system really packs in a punch to compressed music files.

It has a unique tweeting system in which users can enhance their sound for their chosen preferences. They have added a new JetEffect and EQ enhancements settings that lets you control your sound just the way you want them to be. Talking about the sound, you need to buy yourself some decent ear buds because the ones they supplied can’t do the S9’s sick sound.

The Cowon’s S9 is a bit lighter than the iPod Touch and a bit smaller in terms of dimensions in all sizes. It sports a AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) screen that is more brighter and color rich than the standard LCD screen use by many media devices. Movies played in the S9 are more stunning and more vibrant as ever, not only that it has a motion sensor, which means you can play your movies in widescreen.

It also features a FM radio and audio recording. Battery life is on the average for a couple of movies. Obviously though, it seems to be an Ipod Touch wanna be. Overall, the sound quality is the only thing that keeps this device afloat amidst its unresponsive controls.
