Top critical review
They are good for listening, but not more
August 18, 2018
The material is very well made, the headset comes in a nice case, and they're not too heavy on your head, but the fit could be better. They also look really nice and fancy.
Great price, but:
1.) can't use the microphone. I work from home and wanted to use the headphones for phone call/meetings that I need to dial into, but the sound quality was too poor.
2.) I'm being picky with this second one but the headphones get rather sweaty on my ears, after only a short use. I've angled the back of the speakers open, to let air in while I'm listening to them.
3.) I think the tech is behind the times. I didn't notice much difference from the noise canceling, but my complaint has to do with the bluetooth. I bought some rapture headphones that I LOVE. They were the same price, not active noise cancelling, but the bluetooth connects to two devices, this allows me to connect to my computer and cell phone at once. So I can connect to a meeting on my computer or on my phone without any configuration.
I wish I could return these cowin E8s. I only bought them because the review on the E7s were so good.
