    Having been a customer of the E7’s, I was curious how I would like the Pros. I really like the comfort these bring. The E7s are comfortable, but the pros have a noticeably softer ear cup making it more comfortable for working or maintenance around the house. I also noticed that the ear cups swivel forward and backward to allow them to lay flat on your desk or chest more easily than the E7s. I am not sure if that is a upgrade or not as much as just a difference I noted. I like having the volume controls on the sides of the new pros. If my phone is in my pocket, I can just reach up and adjust quickly. Noise Cancelling seems a bit better. Starting music in Bluetooth mode then switching to Noise Cancelling you can hear a major difference which is nice. Also using the 3.5mm plug i can use Noise Cancelling with it. with my E7s I could never use Noise cancelling with the 3.5mm cable plugged in for whatever reason, so that is a nice change. I love the upgrade so far, will post an update on battery time once I use them more. Nice work Cowin for decent priced headphones that deliver on so many levels!

    The sound is very good and the active noise cancelling is better than I expected. The headphones are very comfortable to wear and completely cover my ear creating a full seal. The depth of the base and clarity of the sound was very surprising when I first put them on. I would highly recommend these headphones to anyone looking for reasonably prices active noise cancelling headphonesUPDATED, active noise cancelling is no longer working. I can hear everything while listening to my music. The sound from these headphones is great, but I wanted a pair of noise cancelling headphones. I tried to contact Cowin through there website but haven’t received a reply after 1 week. Now it’s too late to return them to amazon. I’m very disappointed.UPDATED, customer service replaced the non-working product with a working one. Thanks for the quick and easy exchange service.

    IntroductionWhen I reviewed COWIN’s E7 headphones with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), I vividly remember the amazing Bluetooth range, excellent sound reproduction and good noise cancellation. When I found out that the Pro version of these headphones became available, I had to make the purchase to see how the manufacturer improved the product. Read on to find out if the Pro version lived up to my E7 expectations.Package Contents1 – Bluetooth Headphones with ANC1 – Charging Cable1 – Auxiliary Cable1 – User Guide1 – Thank You Card1 – VIP Membership Card1 – Hard Shell CaseControlsThe controls are conveniently located on the right earcup. On the outside are three multi-function buttons, the dot (.), plus (+) and minus (-) buttons. See below for their functionalities.Dot (.) – Play/pause music, accept/end/reject a call, call the last number dialedPlus (+) – Increase volume, skip to the next trackMinus (-) – Decrease volume, skip to the previous trackOn the bottom part of the right earcup is a sliding switch that turns the device on/off, enables/disables ANC and sets the headphones to Bluetooth mode. Next to the switch is the microphone and the auxiliary input port.Performance and UseThe E7 Pro feels comfortable. The leatherette padding on the inside is soft. The cups are big enough to fit my ears which I consider larger than most. They also twist for easier storage. The soft leatherette on the adjustable band results in a comfortable wear.Pairing with an iOS device was straightforward. After powering the E7 Pro, E7 appeared on my phone. Two seconds after I tapped the name, pairing was completed.ANC test was first. I stood next to a refrigerator that produced a good amount of hum. I enabled and disabled ANC a few times and was able to conclude that at least 95% of the hum was cancelled. I was impressed. I could only imagine how well this feature would work inside an airplane.Sound quality reproduction test was next. Low frequencies from my test track of a basso vocalist accompanied by two acoustic guitars, a flute and a clarinet sounded big and soothing. Low frequency performance is drastically improved with bass drum sounding like a “boom.” Middle frequencies were accurate. High frequencies were clear but they lack that feeling of satisfaction when the right amount is produced. I must also mention that for the first time, I heard the extremely faint sound of chimes on my test track that I have never heard before.Bluetooth range test followed. As expected, sound didn’t cutoff until both the iOS device and the headphones were more than 100 feet apart with nothing in between. Of all the headphones I have tested, only the E7 and the E7 Pro have the amazing Bluetooth range. Most other devices start to cutoff at around 30 feet.Phone call test results were as expected. Calls were clear with the E7 Pro. I was even able to call the last number dialed by double pressing the dot (.) button.Pros• Improved low frequency sound reproduction• Accurate middle frequency sound reproduction• Amazing Bluetooth range• Good active noise cancellation• Comfortable to wear• Easy to use• Durable construction• Easy-to-follow user guide• Inclusion of a hard shell caseCons• High frequency sound reproductionFuture ImprovementThere is one aesthetic design that I would like to see in a future version of this product. When using the headset, the minus button is higher than the plus button. The locations of these buttons should be reversed resulting in the plus button physically higher than the minus button.ConclusionCOWIN’s E7 Pro improves on the previous version by producing a more satisfying low frequency and accurate middle frequency sound quality reproduction. With many users favoring more bass than highs, this is an excellent set for most use cases. Comfort is also better compared with the older version. Additionally, the E7 Pro cancels more noise and at $90 (price at the time of review), this set will pay for itself with the ANC on a single long haul flight. The addition of a hard shell case is a nice touch. I would gladly recommend the E7 Pro to friends and family who are in the market for over-the-ear headphones with active noise cancellation.

    Although I would say that the Bose QuietComforts are prettier, these actually sound better to me (particularly in regard to bass response), and are a fraction of the cost. Easy to connect with your phone or bluetooth capable devices. The construction seems sturdy and doesn’t feel cheap. One small advantage over the Bose is that there is a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack connection if you want to plug in the headphones directly, whereas the Bose requires a specialized cable with a custom small jack. So far has great battery life with moderate use.

    I received this item Monday, charged it up and the sound was outstanding however, I have static in both ears as I adjust the headphones into a comfortable position. They sound great as long as I don’t touch them or ride my bike. Is this normal for these to give static in these instances?Let me start off by saying Cowin’s customer service is outstanding. The above mention issue was addressed, solved and I the customer made whole. I received the replacement item today. The product is all it’s made out to be. The sound is unbelievable coming from a product at this price. I am now purchasing a second device and a gift. Thank you Cowin, you have a new customer for life.

    I owned Cowin E7 for a year. This month, they had lightning sale for E7 PRO. E7PRO comes with carrying case. I had no trouble to pair with my iPhone. The sound quality is much better than E7. I tried different kind of music. I was able to hear the background music that I couldn’t from other headphone. The headphone was light. I could wear for hours but I felt a little warm due of lack of ventilation. The headphone sounds a little bit different because it was manually tuned. The headphone needs burn in. More you listen, the better it gets. The headphone sounds very good without aptx.It doesn’t need it. It sounds very good compared with my other headphone equipped with Apts. The noise cancelling is not as good as top quality headphone. It reduced most of the noise. Don’t expect completely eliminate the noise around you. It is good enough to get rid noise at coffee shop and airplanes.

    Consider this a 4.5 star review. These are some pretty excellent headphones for the price, and I was pleasantly surprised when I received mine – they’re a bit better than I expected in almost every way. They do have a couple of minor flaws – one of which seems not so minor to some people – and the sound quality isn’t *quite* as good as the best headphones on the market. That said, the best headphones can run hundreds of dollars, and these are less than a single Franklin.First, the sound quality without noise cancelling on. It’s bass heavy, a little bit muddy, but still the mids and highs come through clearly. Most headphones with muddy bass are really muddy all the way through the frequency range, but these aren’t – if you can deal with the bass, the rest of the music sounds great. I also haven’t detected any sibilance in the high end, which cheap drivers can often give you.I’ve learned that you need to be careful how you test audio output equipment these days because many modern recordings already sound like garbage, and garbage in gives you garbage out. My go-to track for testing is Boston’s “Hitch a Ride” from the days when engineers knew how to record stuff and off a very old, unremastered CD produced before the “loudness war” was a thing. I know this recording itself sounds amazing. And it sounds pretty great through these headphones. Really spacious sound stage, very good dynamics, crystal clear guitars, drums and vocals, but just that muddy bass that’s a bit overemphasized, and not really at the most pleasing frequencies for it to be overemphasized. Still, I expected worse for this price and with all the other features these headphones have!Other recordings sound better or worse, of course – these headphones are definitely good enough to distinguish easily between a good and bad recording. If a recording already has too much bass, though, then it’s going to sound really boomy and kind of unpleasant with these. But, well, that’s the same problem you’d have with a pair of Beats, and lots of people seem to like those.Funnily enough, one way to kill the bass is by turning noise canceling on. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend that just for audio quality because it does some other things to the sound as well, but they do still sound pretty good with the noise canceling engaged. I have a pair of Sony MDR-10RNC wired noise canceling headphones, which I absolutely *love* for their noise canceling but not so much for their sound quality, and the E7 Pros blow the doors off the Sonys for sound quality with noise canceling on.The noise canceling itself seems to work pretty well, but you have to know why noise canceling exists on headphones at all, and that’s for flying. That’s it. Nobody’s making noise canceling circuitry that’s tuned for quieting your co-workers or muting a TV that your family’s watching; I don’t care what the product page here says. The circuitry is tuned for low frequencies, such as you’d hear from a jet engine inside a plane – that’s what noise canceling was invented for and that’s what it’s still good at. I tested these phones against my Sonys using an app on my cell phone connected to my home audio system that gave me airplane-like low frequencies, and these seemed to do basically just as well from what I could tell. They really cut a lot of the low frequency roar. I’m anxious to try them on an actual airplane now, but I might be able to just totally replace my beloved Sonys for travel.But this is why some people say the noise canceling works great and other people say it doesn’t do anything. You have to understand the purpose of it, and use it for that purpose. It’s not for shutting out life; it’s for reducing fatigue caused by engine and wind noise on airplanes.Ironically, there is a little added mid-frequency white noise with noise canceling on. You don’t notice this when you’re in a noisy environment; in fact, my Sonys do it too and I didn’t even know it until I tested them against the E7 Pros. It actually sounds like it may be the exact same circuity in both sets of headphones, although I’m not sure if it is.I do have the same problem that some have mentioned where quick turns of my head cut the sound out with noise canceling on. Honestly, to me this is not a dealbreaker because I really need to whip my head around fast for it to happen, and I just normally don’t move that way – especially not when sitting in an airplane seat, which is where I’d be using the noise canceling. Maybe some individual units are worse, but if you do want to use the noise canceling while jogging or something (which I wouldn’t recommend), then even the way mine are might not work for you. I do wish it wasn’t a problem at all, but it’s one of the few real operational flaws of these headphones and I can live with it.As for the Bluetooth functionality, it seems to work as you’d expect. Turn Bluetooth on, wait for the pairing light to blink, then set your device to pair and that’s it. It’ll automatically connect each time from then on. The connection so far has been solid and stable for me, although on my desktop I did need to move my little Bluetooth adapter from the back to the front or I’d get small momentary dropouts. But I don’t know if that’s the headphones’ or the Bluetooth adapter’s fault. One minor thing is that I wish there was a manual way to pair and connect; it doesn’t seem like there is. You just turn on Bluetooth and if there are no known devices to connect to, it goes into pairing mode. If there’s a known device, it just connects. The problem is I want to pair with multiple devices, and I don’t want to turn all the others (computers, tablets) off all the time when I use the headphones. We’ll see how frustrating this ends up being over time. I’ll update the review if I really have problems with connecting/pairing to the right device.Lastly, the build quality on these seems pretty good; again, better than I’d expect for this price and with these features. Where are they cutting corners?? I guess they’re slightly bulky and heavy, but not uncomfortably so. I have seen photos of the older (non-Pro) E7 and they have updated the casing to be metal on the outside, which looks and feels good, and the headphones themselves are comfortable and very softly padded. The quality isn’t quite up there with my Sonys, but those were originally $300 headphones, and these are relatively close in look and feel. They don’t feel like they’re in another class, at least. There are still a couple spots (the sides of the earpieces, for example) with shiny, cheap feeling plastic, but it’s pretty sparsely used.I do recommend these headphones if you’re looking for an inexpensive set of Bluetooth headphones. They sound good (except for too much bass), look good, they’re comfortable, noise canceling cancels the noise it’s supposed to cancel, and they’re wireless. I’d buy them again.

     We love these, and so does the baby! Seriously- amazing sound quality, good battery life.. worth it.


  10. Ersack5142

     Great headphones. Definitely more attractive looking than the last version. Comes with the hard case too which is nice compared to the last versions which only came with a soft pouch. Still sound amazing comparable to more expensive brands. I will update when I get more listening time with them compared to the last version.

    Just didn’t like them, sorry.

    I’m not sure what’s wrong with them but I returned them and got another pair from 41 Prime. Fast shipping though.
