Product Description


Unlike the rest of the models in its brand category, the Cowin E8 bears a little buggy design. Its components, the headband, the ear cups, and pads are a bit bigger and pronounced than those of either E-7 or E7 Pro.

Out of its significant sized components, the black color COWIN E8 is a little bit cumbersome having to hold it over your head for an extended period. However, through this design, they seem more durable.


The COWIN E8 does not give such comfort as other high-end models do. First, it is bulky and hence cumbersome to have it on your head all day long. Also, people talk of its tight clamping, which seems to press hard on the ear.

This, however, varies from individual users – not everyone experiences this. To add on this is the non-cozy padding at the headband. It feels like it is some hard material pressing against your head all through.

Another comfort concern is breathability, which is never available in this model. Its ear cups tight fit with the padding and allow no air circulation. Such closure, therefore, makes it feel wholly uneasy putting the headphones for a bit longer time.

They cause fatigue to the ear comes and that alone withdraws your concentration on its sounds.
Compared to the rest of the models in its line, it is never any better comfort offering model.

But still, this does not mean that all its features are ineffective or inefficient.

It as well got more lucrative features that would make you overlook these disadvantages.


The Cowin E-8 offers such an average performance in terms of sound quality. It is more so favors those who prefer listening to bass sounds. Their bass comes consistently even at the mid-range level.

It offers such amazingly awesome sound balancing for bass, and if you like listening to bass-heavy-music, surely this will be an ultimate choice for you.

In-depth analysis of this bass, however, states different things altogether. The bass is a little hyped and sounds a little muddier – the tremble is not even. The middle range is even worse, clustered and overpowering.

The sound lacks details and thus does not feel excellent in the ear, especially when other frequencies get played.

The sound profile for Cowin E8 resembles precisely that of the E-7, except that it’s a little bit better balanced. Compared to the E-7 pro, however, the difference in the sound is quite noticeable.

The E-8 comes with a more pronounced lower mid-range as well as a less-pronounced lower-treble, thus introducing the heaviness in the bass.
