Enjoy your music, video, and more while on the go with the Cowon M2. This portable media player features a 2.8" LCD touchscreen and up to 90 hours of battery life. The 32GB of internal flash memory can be expanded by up to an additional 32GB with a micro-SD card.

The M2 comes with JetEffect 5, a comprehensive suite of audio enhancements, reverb effects, and equalizer settings. To more faithfully reproduce sound, it also includes a BBE+ circuit, which compensates for phase delay and prevents extreme high and low frequencies from being washed out.

The user interface is fully customizable, allowing you to set up your M2 to meet your specific needs. The M2 displays videos and photos as well as text files, enabling a full multimedia experience. A built-in speaker allows you to listen with friends, a microphone enables recording voice and music, and the FM radio lets you stay up-to-date with news and music around the world. The M2 charges and transfers data via the included USB cable.

BBE+ Circuit
All music played through speakers or headphones suffers from subtle distortions caused by the inherent characteristics of the loudspeaker itself. The BB+ circuit addresses these problems by compensating for phase and amplitude distortions. It achieves this by adjusting the phase relationships between low, mid, and high frequencies. It also boosts the extreme high and low frequencies, which tend to pose problems for loudspeakers and headphones. This augmentation, when combined with phase compensation, results in a clearer, more true-to-life sound.
