Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player Driver
Cowon iAudio M3 silver Review summary We've been waiting for more than two and a half years for a high-capacity MP3 player smaller than the iPod, and Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player, we're holding one in our hands. If you can picture yourself using only an in-line remote--albeit one with a spacious screen--to control your MP3 player while it's stored out of sight, the M3 deserves serious consideration as an alternative to the iPod.
We have changed the rating in this review Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player reflect recent changes in our rating scale. Click here to find out more. Again, the big design story with the elegant yet sturdy JetAudio iAudio M3 is that it's thin--the skinniest MP3 player yet to hold a 1. The trade-off is that the main unit is noticeably deficient of controls and ports, and it lacks a display.

Instead, JetAudio put the screen and most controls on an included in-line remote, as well as migrated the ports to a bundled travel adapter and desktop cradle for connection to computer, power, or stereo equipment. Although the main player lacks an LCD, it has three lights on the top that indicate whether the hard drive is currently spinning and whether the device is connected to your computer or a power outlet. While this configuration isn't for everyone, those who prefer to use an in-line remote to navigate through tunes will appreciate this setup over that of the Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player, which doesn't have a display on its remote.
The iAudio M3 takes about 10 seconds to boot up, during which time the remote's blue-backlit six-line LCD shows a silhouetted dancer, reminiscent of Apple's current iPod ad campaign. After that, everything else you'd want to know about the player's status appears on the screen. Even once you learn how to navigate menus and songs, you'll need to consult the manual Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player master this device.
For example, you can't change the volume while viewing menus; instead, you first need to click back to the screen showing the Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player that's playing. Once you figure out the basics, such as how the rewind button doubles as a Back key when navigating menus, the sailing gets a lot smoother; you can even customize most display elements to your liking.

As noted, JetAudio includes a cradle and an adapter module for charging the unit, making USB connections, and Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player a line-level input and output. While the adapter offers a portable option for these connections and the cradle provides an easy way to integrate the M3 into your computer or stereo setup, you'll also have to bring one or the other along on trips.
Chances are you won't lose them, but we can't say the same for the little rubber covering that protects the player's proprietary connection port; ours lasted a matter of days before its predicted disappearance. Bundled accessories include the cradle and the adapter mentioned Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player, as well as a black-vinyl carrying case with belt loopan AC adapter, a stereo line-in cable, and earbuds.
Those who purchase Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player online, however, will be disappointed by the player's lack of support for any secure online music store; JetAudio currently has no plans to add such a feature. While the iAudio doesn't accept any lossless codecs, a representative of the company told us it would consider adding one with a firmware update. An excellent bundled program called JetAudio--already popular as a standalone jukebox in its own right--handles encoding and file transfers over USB 1.
Again, the cradle or the adapter module is required.
JetShell doesn't import songs to a jukebox database; instead, it works with existing folders, subfolders, and M3U playlists. The advantage is that you always know where your songs really live, whether on the device or on your computer, but this approach also means the program Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player just scan your hard drive for tunes. For recording music from your computerless friend's CD player or stereo or converting your vinyl and cassettes to MP3, the M3 offers analog line-in recording.

Meanwhile, a microphone on the side of the unit which the carrying case leaves exposed handles voice recordings. The latest beta firmware adds the ability to view text files on the remote's six-line screen.
We love that you can set recording levels for the microphone and the analog line-level input, but a levels monitor would help optimize recordings even further. First of all, the sound is clean and strong through our Shure E3c test headphoneswith an ultraclean 95dB Cowon iAUDIO M3 Player ratio and ample maximum volume of 20mW per channel. Some of the JetEffect signal-processing features aren't for those who prefer untampered audio, but we found that the right combination of settings added considerable presence to our tunes.
As for the included earbuds, they were way too big and slippery to stay in our ear; as with most included headphones, you're better off with a replacement.
