Digital Audio Player Cowon iAudio 9+ 16GB (Diskontinue)


Cowon’s i9 portable audio player is impressively light and slender, yet it has 16GB of storage and is reasonably priced. Previous Cowon players we’ve seen have had unusual controls and the i9 is no exception.

The iAudio 9’s outside housing is made entirely out of a hard matte plastic, it is scratch resistant and more or less fingerprint proof. The screen on the other hand is made of a glass composite, likely Corning’s Gorrila Glass, but will still show fingerprints like any other glass screen. The materials and overall feel of the device is very monolithic- materials flow well together and where they meet the tolerances are uniform. The build of the device is very sturdy with a nice weight- not too heavy not too light.

The screen is a standard 320×240 pixel, 262k color, LCD screen. The colors are great, the response times look good, and viewing angles are better than most at near 180 degrees. Of screens of this size you can’t really ask for more- the LCD used in this application is pretty much at its maturation point. Sure, you might be able to squeeze a little bit better or higher resolution screen such as an OLED- it would be overkill for very little gain. In other words, it’s a great screen and you will most likely be pleased.
