”A tiny and sonically talented portable music player.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Dedicated to Hi-Res music, in the palm of your hand

Small and light enough to fit in your pocket, the Cowon Plenue D3 brings the power of Hi-Res music to the palm of your hand. With premium quality components, this dedicated music player leaves smartphones dead in terms of sound quality.

Next generation High Resolution
Hi-Res sound is already widely regarded as a huge step-up in quality above MP3 and CD. Featuring twin Cirrus Logic CS43131 DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) High-Res sound just keeps getting better. With separate DACs for the left and right channels, Plenue D3 delivers astonishing realism and a wide soundstage.

Tailored sound, with DSP filters
JetEffect 5 delivers a huge range of sound-tuning options, including 44 presets and 4 user presets. Along with the 5-band EQ, with quick preset selection, a wide selection of filters further tailor the sound. Available filters include BBE+, BBE, Mach3Bass, 3D Surround, MP Enhance and Reverb. These filters enhance all aspects of sound, from the crispness at the top end to the deepest bass response.

Support for most formats, including Native DSD
As well as the popular FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC, APE, MP3, OGG and DCF formats, the Plenue D3 features native DSD support (up to DSD128). Originally designed for SACD players, DSD (Direct Stream Digital) encoded music files offer stunning levels of detail and resolution. Thanks to powerful new processing, you get effortless streaming of DSD files with the huge dynamic range, ‘inky’ quiet backdrop and all the subtle detail you’d expect from the format.

Balanced output option
Featuring a 4-pole headphone socket (2.5mm), the Plenue D3 is ideal for use with balanced headphones. Using a balanced signal between the source and headphones reduces noise and interference and is especially handy on the move. A standard 3.5mm output is also fitted, for regular headphones and AUX hi-fi links.

Powerful output
The balanced headphone output delivers twice the power, optimising the full potential of your high-end headphones. The powerful headphone amp is yet another area where smartphones simply can’t compete with the Cowon Plenue D3’s punchy, dynamic sound.

Bluetooth option
If you prefer to use Bluetooth headphones, the Plenue D3 also offers the option of wireless connectivity via Bluetooth. With support for aptX, you get high quality sound, cable-free.

Built-in storage
As standard, the Plenue D3 has 64GB of built-in storage – enough for a decent music library. Thanks to the MicroSD card slot, though, this can be expanded by up to a further 128GB, giving a total of 192GB - enough for a serious music collection.

Built-in rechargeable battery giving up to 45 hours playback
Recharge the player in around 3.5 hours and you'll have an impressive battery life of up to 45 hours (MP3). Even with the highest quality Hi-Res files the battery life is around 30 hours – twice as good as many rivals and comparable smartphones.

Compact and stylish
Measuring just 79mm by 53mm, the Plenue D3 easily fits the palm of your hand. The aluminium case is both strong and light – as well as giving the player a high quality feel. An easy-to-use touch screen makes navigation easy and comes as second nature after using a smartphone. A jog wheel gives quick, precise control of the volume.

Give music on the move the priority it deserves, with the Cowon Plenue D3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound quality, very stylish design I purchased this recently and am seriously impressed. The sound quality is excellent, perfectly balanced across bass, mid, and treble with a crystal clear and expansive sound stage. Great EQ options too.The device is very stylish - I love the design and high quality feel.
