DRM encoded WMA-10 files are also supported for those with music service subscriptions. Additional features include a built-in FM radio with scheduled recording, a voice recorder and an alarm clock. Cowan has also included their exclusive JetEffect suite of custom EQ controls, which allow for users to manually adjust the 5-band EQ.
