Read the full Cowon X9 review

The Cowon X9 is the latest portable MP3 and video player from the Korean audio brand. However, in some respects it feels like a step back when compared with older models. Its touchscreen is resistive, its display low-res and it doesn't have the storage to justify the bulky design. Cowon needs to get with the times, or it'll soon be game over.

Hi Thomas
We get to review a number of MP3 players and scores them comparatively with what else in on the market.
5/10 doesn't mean the product is bad. Have a look at our guide to our scoring system
