Default Can you use cowon J3 for sports?

Hello guys,

Wanted to know your opinion in whether or not using the J3 for running is safe. What i really mean is, if the hardware has the possibility to break by the shock running causes to the it. audio chipset etc.
What do you think..? most probably it will limit its life span i guess

Forget about the J3 for sports. Get a cheap player like the Sansa Clip+/Zip instead, and save the J3 for safer activities. In other words, get both players. They are both sensational in their own rights.

I skateboard with my i9, it's in a small camera bag on my belt loop and never had issue with it, so I guess you can. That said, I prefer to use Clips on the go and for sports only because if you take a spill and mess it up it's not that much of a loss ...
