If you are looking for high-end high-fi headphones, you’ve come to the right place.
Today we’re going to take a gander at what Cowin E8 Wireless Headphones can do, we’ll talk a little bit about the brand, after which we’ll share our impressions regarding the numerous performance tests we’ve put the E8 through.
Without any further ado, let’s get straight to it.
In a nutshell, Cowin’s E8 stands for a set of headphones with a hi-fi soundstage and impeccable Active Noise Cancellation technology.
However, there’s much more to them than just that.
Our “performance evaluation” section is here to help you get a better look at E8’s design, noise canceling technology, the improved airplane mode, hi-fi sound, Bluetooth connectivity, and more.
Cowin E8 Design
The first thing we notice about E8’s design is the ultra-soft set of ear cushions. These cups are medium in size, and they cover the ears without imposing too much pressure.
What’s more, let’s also note that the headband connectors are slightly curved, moved away from the band so as not to pinch the ears of the wearer.
These small details are easily neglected, but they mean a lot in terms of comfortability.
Furthermore, the over-ear cushions can swivel up to 90 degrees, so you can rest assured that they’ll fit just fine, regardless of how big ears the wearer has.
Additionally, both the band and the cups are very light, so we can wave ear fatigue goodbye.
The brand also states that they’ve added new, exquisite materials which boast magnetic absorption properties, aiming to further boost the overall comfort level.
- Good noise isolation.
- Good build quality.
- High leakage.
- Bulky, cumbersome design.
- Slightly muddy audio reproduction.
The E8 headphones come outfitted with a 545mAh battery which is easily rechargeable. Even with all of the convenience features turned on allow you to enjoy in your music for up to 20 full hours.
That’s a lot, even by high-end headphones standards, but that’s not all.
You won’t have to purchase another battery for your headphones for years, if not decades, as the one that comes supplied to E8 is famous for both reliability and longevity.
Better Headband Connectors
The headband connectors of earlier Cowin headphone models were way too rigid for comfort, and they’ve often clamped or pinched the ears of the wearer.
The arced design of E8 takes care of this issue and substantially boosts the overall comfort rating.
Premium noise isolation
The ANC technology was used on both models, but E7 Pro leaked “more sound” into the wearer’s ears. While even the E8 isn’t capable of eliminating 100% of ambient noise, it’s substantially better than the earlier version.
More Suitable for Commuting and Travel
Now, this might not be a huge deal, but people who frequently commute or travel will have a better experience with E8.
This particular model feels better, offers more comfortability, as well as additional options which allow you to customize your listening experience more easily
To further bolster our aforementioned argument, the E8 is also slightly more portable than earlier versions in the same series. It’s lighter and just a bit smaller altogether.
As the brand states, the E8 is some 25% stronger when compared to E7 Pro, let alone even earlier versions. That, of course, regards not only the bass but the entire soundstage in general.
The highs are full of character, and the lows are deep and thumpy. On a downside, the mids aren’t exemplary with both E8 and E7 pro.
Better built-in Microphone
The earlier version of Cowin’s headphones from the E series had a great microphone onboard. However, some people report experiencing static and minor feedback every once in a while.
Cowin’s engineers made sure that this issue is resolved when they built the E8 model.
Ports & Controls
Fundamentally Cowin E8 is a Wireless Headphone, but this has a 3.5mm aux cable jack to plug your headphone with any music playing device if you don’t want to use Bluetooth.
For example, you forgot to charge the headphone and drained all power. Now you still can listen to music with already included 3.5mm aux cable.
For charging, there is a mini USB port to charge your headphone with an already given USB cable.
Other than that, there is a Power button to power on, off and pair your phone with a Bluetooth device. You need to keep holding the power button for 5/6 seconds to turn it on.
When power/Bluetooth is on, a LED light will blick in blue color to indicate. Also, a lady voice will give notification in the headphone speaker.
When we’re talking about the Bluetooth function of any headphone model, we’re talking about easy connectivity and cable-free convenience. That’s exactly what Cowin’s E8 provides.
You can use this feature to make your calls without using hands or to skip your songs and adjust the volume.
On another, note, there’s a built-in microphone onboard which allows you to speak without having to take your E8 headphones off from your head.
These two features combined will easily make you forget about the “traditional” way of making calls, that’s a given.
