COWIN E7 PRO review
The Cowin E7 Pro Active Noise Cancelling Headphones are a set of headphones that do more than play music. They also have active noise cancellation and quality Bluetooth connectivity. Manufactured by Cowin, a well-known brand in the world of headphones, the E7 Pro is a set of headphones that could be the right choice for you. Let’s dig into our COWIN E7 PRO review!
- ✓ Fit type: Over-ear
- ✓ Back: Closed-back
- ✓ Connection: Wired/Wireless
- ✓ Colors: Black, White, Blue, Red
- ✓ Excellent construction, good sound quality.
The build quality of the Cowin E7 Pro is excellent and feels sturdy. The earpads are made from soft leather and are comfortable to wear. The headband is padded and also feels comfortable. The headband also has a metal finish which adds to its overall look. The cable is removable, and you can replace it if damaged. The ear cups rotate 90 degrees so that they can lay flat on your chest when not in use. They are foldable for easy storage, and the ear cups are removable as well.
The Cowin E7 Pro Active Noise Cancelling Headphones have active noise cancellation, which means they have built-in microphones that pick up and cancels out the ambient noise. It’s an exciting way of reducing ambient noises, and it works quite well. There is a switch on the left ear cup that lets you turn the active noise cancellation on or off. When active noise cancellation is on, you can hear a faint hissing sound, but it’s not too bad at all.
The Cowin E7 Pro Active Noise Cancelling Headphones have an over-ear design with large ear cups that fit over your ears very well. The ear cups are large enough to cover your entire ear. The padding on the ear cups is soft and comfortable to wear for long periods. The headband has a metal finish, and the headband itself has padding with smooth leather.
The headband is adjustable so that you can get the right fit for your head size. There is a 3.5 mm audio cable included in the package, and you can use the headphones with or without the Bluetooth connectivity.
They’re mostly black with some silver accents on the headband and ear cups. The ear cups are large and circular with an oval-shaped opening in the middle for your ears. They swivel 90 degrees to lay flat on your neck when you’re not using them. On the right ear cup, there’s a power button and volume buttons on the side; a micro USB port for charging on the bottom; and an ANC button on top that you hold to turn on ANC or tap to turn it off (the E7 remember their last setting).
On the left ear cup, there’s a micro USB charging port, a 3.5 mm port to plug in the included audio cable, and a microphone for taking calls or using voice commands with compatible devices like smartphones or tablets (more on that later).
On the bottom of each ear cup is a battery compartment cover that you can open to replace the AAA batteries (not included). The E7 fold flat so they can rest more comfortably against your neck when not in use. Unfortunately, they do not fold up for storage or travel like some other headphones do.
The Cowin E7 Pro Active Noise Cancelling Headphones are very comfortable to wear for long periods. The ear cups are large and come with a soft leather padding which is soft to touch and also comfortable to wear on the ears. The headband is padded as well with soft leather which makes it comfortable to wear it for long periods. The headphone set weighs about half a kg which means they are not too bulky or uncomfortable to wear for long periods.
How do the COWIN E7 PRO sound?
The Cowin E7 Pro Active Noise Cancelling Headphones are well-known for their quality sound output, and they do not disappoint in this department either. You get crisp sound with good range from these headphones, and importantly, there is no distortion at high volumes, even when you’re listening to bass-heavy music.
There are also some presets that you can choose from when listening to music like acoustic, bass boost, hip hop, jazz, pop etc. depending on what kind of music you’re listening to. There’s also an equalizer that you can toggle if you wish, but it’s not necessary because these headphones sound great already out of the box.
When using these headphones, there is no need to play music at high volumes because they do such an excellent job at cancelling out ambient noises at low volumes. You can enjoy your music without having to play it at high volumes which might damage your ears in the long run (especially if you have kids!).
The Cowin E7 Pro Active Noise Cancelling Headphones also have Bluetooth connectivity so that you can play music or take calls wirelessly from your phone or other devices within about 10 meters of range.
The Bluetooth connectivity works well, and pairing was seamless on my iPhone 6s Plus when I turned on the Bluetooth connection for the first time. Still, pairing may differ from device-to-device so make sure you check out the user manual for instructions on how to pair these headphones with your phone. If you run into any issues when pairing them together because otherwise, pairing them is very simple and straightforward as I’ve mentioned earlier in this review.
Does the COWIN E7 PRO have a microphone?
The Cowin E7 have a decent microphone. In quiet rooms, speech recorded or transmitted with this mic will sound relatively thin and noticeably muffled and lacking in detail. In noisy situations, the mic will struggle to separate speech from ambient noise in moderately loud places like a busy street or a loud office environment.
In louder settings like a construction site or an airport terminal, the microphone will struggle to separate speech from ambient noise even in moderately noisy places like a busy street or a loud office environment.
What about wireless?
If you’re looking for wireless headphones, then these should serve your needs quite well because they have Bluetooth connectivity that lets you play music or take calls wirelessly from your phone or other devices within about 10 meters of range (33 feet).
The Bluetooth connectivity works excellent as I’ve mentioned before in this review and pairing was seamless on my iPhone 6s Plus when I turned on the Bluetooth connection for the first time.
If a call comes in whilst you are listening to music, then audio playback will automatically pause until the call ends and then resume from where it left off after call ends (you can configure this by using controls on your phone).

How good is the case?
The E7 Pro comes with an excellent carrying case. The case is made of hard plastic and has a firm handle and latch. The case is very light and so can be easily carried around. It is also huge so that it can easily fit the headphones when not in use. Still, unfortunately, the case doesn’t have any extra space for storing your cable or an extra battery pack for extending your listening time away from an outlet.
What’s in the box?
The box contains an instruction manual, a warranty card, a silver USB charging cable, a leather carrying case, a carrying pouch, two extra pairs of ear-tips, a user guide, and the Cowin E7 Pro headphones.
Is the COWIN E7 PRO compatible with games consoles?
The earphones are compatible with all devices that have Bluetooth connectivity. So you should be able to use them with your Playstation and Xbox, although we did not test this.
Should I buy the COWIN E7 PRO?
The Cowin E7 Pro Active Noise Cancelling Headphones make for the right choice if you are in the market for a set of headphones. They have a lot of features and are reasonably priced.
