Cowon S9 vs Sweat
Hi. I'd like to start off by saying that I've perused through this site time and again and more often than not, found the answer to whatever question I'd had. However, something I've come across recently doesn't seem to be discussed many places and even if it has been, it's out of my reach. So, I decided to register and just ask myself.
The only problem is, I'm not sure if the question belongs here because it's more maintenance-side than accessories. Anyway, here's my problem. I got my S9 a couple weeks back and everything seems to be working out well enough. My previous MP3 was a PSP, which I realize isn't really an MP3 but it did what I needed for the most part. A while back, it's SD card slot broke and it became difficult to use so I decided to upgrade to the S9.
The main thing I used the PSP and intend to use the S9 for is the gym. The only problem is that I keep the MP3 in my pants pocket and while there, the PSP got sweaty enough (but never became faulty due to the sweat). So here's what I'm wondering... is there a lot of danger for the S9 from being in my pocket like that? I know the manual recommends against water. Does anyone else use it in the gym? And if so, do you use some kind of cover/case or is it just fine on it's own?
