Great value, excellent sound quality, nice design
on 6 January 2018
After having used these headphones for a week, I am confidently able to award it a five-star review. The headphones have a sleek, premium design which is nicely complimented by excellent sound quality and bass.
The headphones arrived quickly in a premium looking black box. Inside were instructions, headphones, a micro USB charging cable and an AUX cable. The headphones were fully charged when they arrived and I started using them right away.
Just like the big brand headphones, the E7s excelled in terms of comfort and design. The protein ear pads and padding around the headband make the headphones easy to wear for long periods of time. The shiny silver and black design feels premium and sturdy. The multifunction button is conveniently placed on the right ear, using the button you can skip tracks and adjust the volume, allowing for a fully wireless experience. Using the sliders, the headband size can be adjusted, suiting every head. The earmuffs provide a seal around your ear which reduce the surrounding noise, allowing you to listen to your music in peace. If you are a frequent traveller, it may be worth spending a little more and purchasing the Cowin E7 headphones with Active Noise Cancelling Technology.
Connecting the headphones are very simple, just flick the switch to ‘BT’ and select E7 from your Bluetooth device. Connectivity is good and will work over 10m away from the source. The microphone allows you to conveniently take phone calls without taking off the headphones. The re-chargeable battery contained within the headphones is of excellent quality and will give you at least 24 hrs of listening. This means that you can use these headphones continuously over long journeys without needing to worry about the battery. The battery indicator on iOS is also helpful in knowing when you should charge the headphones. I charged my headphones with a 2A charger and the reached full charge within 2 hours. The right earmuff also includes an AUX input so if the headset runs out of battery, you are still able to use them.
The sound quality does not disappoint. It is worth noting that when using the headphones with the AUX cable, the sound quality was better. The audio had clarity and depth and they were able to handle the full frequency spectrum without difficulty. Classical tracks get a nice low and low-mid boost that allows the lower register strings to stand out a bit more than they normally would. The high-mids and highs, meanwhile, stand out enough to allow the vocal parts and the higher-register strings to retain the spotlight. This is a crisp, clear response, with some flashes of added richness in the bass realm. When listening to songs with a heavy bass at high volumes, the sound doesn’t distort.
Overall, the E7s are excellent in all aspects and for under £50, they are great value. I would recommend these headphones to anyone who is looking for good sound, build quality and comfort but doesn’t wish to spend £200 on a big brand headset.
