Just my opinion, albeit shared by many, that Cowon have the best audio quality of any portable player on the market. I missed out on getting on of the last J3 32GB's unfortuantely.

I have to agree with NyteOwl, about the best sound you are going to find on a player. Although my player is about 5 years old and I haven't kept up with the company....based on my experience I would highly recommend it.

I have a 32GB J3, it's truly in a league of it's own when it comes to the audio reproduction quality. And the battery lasts for like ever.
