Cowon D2 + Bose Triport In-Ears?
 
Hey guys,
Ive been looking for a new MP3 player for the last while, and yesterday I came across a company I have never seen before, Cowon. All the reviews keep saying how great of a device the D2 is. So yesterday, i saw it on sale at NCIX for $165, so i splurged over my $100 budget and bought it. After reading up more on it, everyone that owns it kept saying over and over about the sound quality that the D2 has, but you can only notice the sound Quality with better headphones, so i splurged even more above my budget, and i got a pair of Bose Triport In-Ear headphones. Regular Price $120 but got them brand new locally for $50, from someone that got them as a present. Anyways, does anybody know about the D2 and or the Bose Triports? and if so, what is your opinion did i make a good choice?

Cowon is known for their audio quality, very good choice there.
I haven't heard anything good about Bose from "audiophiles"..but for $50 i don't think you wasted your money.

Ya,
Only problem is, that i dont really understand. Most of the music i listen to is in Arabic, and its more concentrated on voice, less instruments. Do u think ill still notice a difference?
Thanks for the reply

Thats for you to test. I don't know if YOUR ears will notice a difference.

Marhaba..haha i have Arabic friends.

I have those earphones, they have pretty nice sound quality and for $50 why not? Though the bass is a bit overpowering thus the highs/mids don't sound the greatest but if your just listening to vocals it should be fine.

I'd stay away from bose. Everytime i tried bose, they sounded awfully muddy with the bass. You pay mostly for bragging rights among people who aren't audiophiles. But i guess 50$ is a good price.

I <3 Base, i dunno, i just like bass alot, even when the voices come across lower. I dunno, it just sounds nicer to my ears, as long as its not too too much
