I thought it was okay, but not fitting all my needs. The heat with covered ear headsets (being only brand ever used) it wasn't for me. This wasn't even during working out. I am not a fan of inner ear headsets either. I was looking for an alternative. Hopefully if give them a try it works out for you. I am checking out bone connectivity headsets.
I've used a number of Cowin audio devices over the years, but these headphone....these are absolutely amazing. I owned the E7 Pro as well as the standard E7. Honestly thought these E8 would be a slight upgrade. Boy was I wrong. As soon as you open the package, you're greeted with premium packaging and premium, materials. The feel of the headphones are ...idk..luxurious? Basically you can tell you paid for quality. The sound is crisp but not lacking in bass (normally a trade off). The noise cancel was pretty good, but people I would talk to while walking outdoors instantly noticed an improvement in the noise or lack of outside noise during our calls. It's got easy controls, its collapsible, I mean I don't know what more to say about them. I will say , the one, single drawback for me is that its micro usb charging instead of current USB C. Beyond that, great headphones. Battery life is way above average. I've had them for a couple days now and have not needed to recharge despite using them everyday.
Let me just finish off by summarizing what everyone cares about;
Battery life has been exceptional. I think its rated for 30 hours, I've reached almost 30 and still rockin, no drop in performance.
The sound quality is superb. I can't say it enough. The sound is clear and crisp with just the right amount of bass to keep your head bouncing. I have a number of headphones, a lot more expensive than these, but for some reason I felt like I didn't want to take these off. They are just super comfortable, especially at the price point.
The Noise cancelling is instantly noticeable by you and whomever you're communicating with. Isolate the noise around you.
When opening the box for these Cowin SE8, I thought perhaps the product got mixed up. It looks like a Bose, it feels like a Bose, but it's not a Bose. It's better. The headphones are very minimal and can't beat a free case. Its sleek design is comparable to most highly expensive headphones on the market today.
The older versions of Cowins I have had an excellent sound quality and these are better than those. Cowin continues to excel in making their product better with clear audio and resonating sound.
The noise-canceling is my favorite feature of these headphones because they really do work compared to others on the market. The one-touch feature allows the headphones to transform into a world of it's own.
The comfort of this particular pair fits really snug. It conforms to the ears really well even for someone with a larger head. It's comfort allowed me to wear these for hours and barely noticed I had them on.
The battery time on these Cowins already beats my older pair. It charges pretty quick and have used them all day. I haven't tried to run them the entire 30 hours because I have a habit of charging my headphones daily but will try it out and reply back if it is less than described.
I’ve had these for many months now and after having lots of time to truly try them out, I’m happy to give them 5 stars. The noise cancellation actually works, unlike other active noise cancelling headphones that you hear a distant high pitched sound when turned on. This SE8 pair actually cancels out the noise, and it’s also really comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I’ve used mine on flights many times. They are so small when folded up that I can hold them in my hand when traveling without any problem at all. Definitely recommend this model
Cowin representative contacted me after I had less than stellar response to the E7. Largely it was a comfort issue. The representative contacted me and offered an upgrade to the SE8. Wonderful fit, excellent sound. But..... this company offers absolute best service I have encountered in years !!! Thank you !
The SE8 continues Cowin’s incorporation of technology standards improving sound quality for a broader customer demand. The incorporation of Bluetooth 5.0 & AAC Codecs standards, comfortable over the ear pads, redesign and location of controls and control of ambient sound has improved sound depth and performance consistency. That said, I rated the SE8 4 stars because of a design change for storage. The ear cups fold vertically over each other instead of 90 degrees flat and stored in a fatter elliptical case. Having the ear cups lay flat in a larger case has several desirable features:One - having the ear cups fold over each other may cause damage to the soft cup lining;Two - the fold ear cup over storage design is difficult and may cause some customers to damage the connections;Three - having more room in the case allows for storage of cables, a wireless flight adapter, etc.;Finally - having a flat case is more practical to pack and retrieve during a flight.I received an invitation from Cowin to evaluate their SE8 headphones. They requested an evaluation about Appearance, Sound Quality, Noise Cancellation, Comfort and Battery time. Since I own two sets of E7 Pro headphones I decided that the best way to start was to compare the two. I bought my E7 Pro headset on 11/30/19 after weighing the pros, cons and price of several headsets. I am retired, so the headsets are primarily used when traveling. I used the E7 Pro’s on a flight to/from Atlanta to Aruba, a 4 hour flight. In conjunction with that flight, I also tested my new RHA Wireless Flight Adapter. My wife and I used E7 Pro’s during the flight to and from Aruba. I used mine with the RHA wireless transmitter and my wife used a direct hook up. Both of us were very impressed with the NC, comfort and non lag time voice to video parring of the movies we watched using the E7 Pro.For convenience and direct comparison I used my iPAD Pro and Amazon Music with BT and direct connections. I also used my RHA Wireless Transmitter on my receiver for BT. This allowed me to simulate using it on airline systems without BT.My iPad Pro doesn’t have phone access, so I didn’t test it. I suspect that incorporating BT 5.0 and AAC Codecs standards improves 'phone connection quality significantly.Comparison of SE8 vs. E7 Pro Appearance - the SE8 headphones have oval ear cups vs. round ear cups on the E7 Pro; - the SE8 has a smaller radius ear cup to ear cup than the E7 Pro. - both have the same soft leather like comfortable cushiness; - - the E7 Pro folds flat in the case vs. the SE8 folds sideways in the case - the SE8 has physical control buttons on one ear cup that allows for easier control without removing them. The E7 Pro has a slide switch for Off/BT/NC and a touch +/- on the side of same ear cup for volume control; Opinion - Having the ear cups that lie flat in a larger case and laying flat has several desirable features: One, having the ear cups fold over each other doesn’t protect the soft cup lining; Two, having more room in the case allows for storage of cables, a wireless flight adapter, etc.; Finally, having a flat case is more practical to pack and retrieve during a flight then an odd shaped one.Sound Quality - the SE8 headphones has Bluetooth 5 vs. Bluetooth 4 on the E7 Pro; - the SE8 uses the AAC Codecs standards; - the SE8 ear cup sound apertures are 36 mm vs. E7 Pro’s 45 mm; - the SE8 has adjustable ambient sound; - both units worked well with the RHA Wireless Transmitter and parred well with the voice and TV viewing. Opinion - Both lose deep base and crisper higher notes in NC mode; - the SE8 sounds crisper overall, though both sound much better without NC; - the SE8 has a nice feature of ambient sound control where it is important to be aware and in contact with your surrounding; - Both connected easily using a direct wire connection. I did notice that there was a difference in sound quality with both units. Both were were crisper and deeper using the BT option; - I don’t use my headphones for phone conversations or conferencing, so I did not test the phone for clarity. I suspect that BT 5 and AAC Codecs improve phone connection quality significantly; - The SE8 has verbal prompts to help you through connections. I discovered something I overlooked previously with my E7 Pro. The SE8 requested access to my microphone to communicate with my Alexa Dot. I then relooked at my E7 Pro capabilities and discovered it could also can communicate with Alexa.Noise Cancellation Depth - the SE8 reduces noise to 33 db vs E7 Pro reduces noise to 30 db.Comfort - I found that the SE8 headphones to be a little more comfortable.Battery Time - Both are rated for 30 hrs.
