Amazon.com: Customer reviews: COWIN E8 [Upgraded] Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Bluetooth Headphones with Microphone Deep Bass Wireless Headphones Over Ear, Great Audio for Travel/Work/TV/Computer/Cellphone, Rose
Noise reduction of overall headphone design plus noise cancellation features are great. I use these all the time due to sound hyper-sensitivity (chronic illness). Good quality sound and impressive battery life.
Bluetooth distance is outstanding -- I can walk all over my large farmhouse and even across the yard without losing connection to my stationary streaming tablet. Button layout makes more sense than the E7 (up=up) and located where it won't accidentally get pushed when bumped or leaning against a pillow.
Ear cushions detach magnetically for easy cleaning, so for travel the headset is best kept in the case. However, Cowin sells reasonably priced replacement ear cushions should the originals get lost or damaged. The replacements don't seat in the rim quite as securely as the originals, but they are quite comfortable and easily replacable.
Customer service was great about responding to a complaint in a timely manner.
Originally my wife and I got these for her to potentially use for gaming (using with Discord, etc.) but we found the mic to be too distorted and low volume for that purpose. I had intended to get a pair for myself anyway, however, so I just went ahead and took them and she got something else. I have found them to be fantastic headphones for my purposes, which is mostly listening to music late at night while working on other tasks. The sound quality isn't as good as my wired headphones, but it's the best and most consistent I've ever experienced from a set of Bluetooth headphones, and definitely good enough for casual listening. They are quite comfortable, and the noise cancellation seems to be pretty good, though admittedly there isn't much noise to cancel late at night where I live. If I go on a trip with these I will try to remember to update my review to reflect those experiences. Full disclosure, I don't write a lot of reviews because I don't have tons of time, but they offered a free gift to do a review (they didn't say it had to be a positive review) and I like free stuff, so here I am. Enjoy :-)
First pair of head phone that I have ever been able to wear for more than 30 minutes at a time. First, the sound is very, very good; but, for me comfort is a big thing. If headphones are uncomfortable after less than an hour's worth of use then the quality of the sound experience doesn't matter! This are light enough and the ear cups are very good. T
The only thing that could make them better would be a better pad on the head band and/or a dual head band like one sees on professional, studio quality equipment. Dual head band won make them ore stale on the head when moving about. Would I purchase them again - Yes.
I've been taking my time researching over ear headphones that are capable of giving me that "in person" experience at a pricepoint that was acceptable to me. I don't want to pay $1k+ even though I'm somewhat of an audiophile. I already have nice Beats and Sony headsets but they don't provide the definition in sound I've been looking for - either too heavy on the bass or too focused on mid tones. It's taken me almost a year but I finally decided on the Conwin E8 (upgraded) Active Noise Cancelling headset based on comparison information, all the great reviews and their stellar company reputation. I'm so glad I did! First let me say they are very nice looking, mine are black and with a deep pink metal trim. They fit really well over my ears and are comfortable. I do need to take them off every 30-40 minutes or so because my head and ear area gets warm but it is summer. Might not be noticeable in cooler months. Noise canceling works even better than my Sony's! I don't hear much of anything around me when I have the headset on. Bluetooth pairing was fast and easy. They play for several hours on one charge. Battery doesn't drain between uses as long on you un-pair and turn them off. I don't have to charge them very often. The sound capability of these thi gs is REALLY good! They are good right out of the box but use an equalizer with a surround sound ability and these will blow you away!!! These are not bass heavy, so if you are looking for that then these are not for you. If you are looking for a great headset that provides very good overall sound, and with an equalizer can produce a "realistic I am right there experience", these can do that. For the price, you can't do better...even at higher prices like my other sets, these are MUCH better!
The E8 upgraded has way better sounds quality. I am absolutely amazed. This is my second pair of Cowin Headphones. My original pair was the E7. I didn't specifically get them for the noise cancelling feature, but did notice that it did not eliminate noise as much as I would have preferred. Also the back button stopped working about 7 months in. The E8 upgraded's noise cancellation feature is very good. I can not hear my husband talking her playing his video games while I work in the same room with these on. They seem to even cancel noise before the headphones are turned on. The ear cups are larger than the E7 and the headset is a bit heavier overall. But that was mentioned in the product description. The battery life on these is around 20 hours as compared to the 32/36 hours of the E7 but the sound quality is way better. The biggest down side for me is that there is no way to pause your music using just the headset. You have to hit the pause button on whatever device you are listening from. This does irritate me, but I'm sure I will get used to it. Overall this is a great product and I would highly recommend. Cowin's customer service is also very prompt. I intend on buying their Bluetooth speakers for my car as well.
I purchased these after accidentally breaking my pair of Cowin E7 headphones. These are a great replacement! The ear cushions are soft and comfortable. The battery life is great even with noise cancellation on. The sound quality is excellent. The Bluetooth range took me by surprise! I did not expect these to stay connected after stepping out into the hallway shutting my office door and walking to the end of the hall. They finally lost connection after I entered a room at the end of the hall then shut the door. These are slightly larger than the E7 which I needed to extend slightly from the smallest setting to fit.
These are so cushy! and the sound quality is awesome and the ANC is pretty good .. i can hear my blood pumping when it is on with no music! The headphones really do a good job removing background noise and conversations although i can still dimly hear people 5 ft next to me. I had never heard of Cowin but i risked purchase based on other reviews and I'm impressed. saved me a lot of $ from a comparable Bose ANC headphones i was considering.
got these to make my recent flight more pleasant and they did the trick! paired immediately with my iPhone... not so much with the iPod, though. haven't figured that out yet. but the noise reduction is great, they are super comfortable, and light enough to carry in my carry-on. so happy with these, and so happy with the price which was half of other comparable models.
Omg!! I am so happy I found these. They are such better quality than beats, which are very unreasonably priced for the sound quality. Some people warn against lowered quality of noise-cancelling headphones, but these are perfect and even-sounding. If you are a musician looking for immaculate sound, then these are your pick. As musicians and music appreciators, we should spoil ourselves! They are loud off of your head so they could even be used as a speaker in a cinch, but they are silent to those around you when on your ears. Thanks, Cowin!
Good product. Customer support interface troublesome (site and phone difficult to transact if needed-I always check.) Slightly illogical button placement (cancel versus on-off) Once you get it going this is very effective.
