How is Design and Build Quality of COWIN E7?
COWIN E7 Active Noise Cancelling is a budget headphone with all important features you may get in the expensive noise-canceling headphones but Don't expect a premium quality. Manufacturers made it available for less than $60 that needs to use average quality material but it performs all the basic jobs that any noise-canceling headphone does.
It's comfortable with having very soft protein earpads that won't give any pain to your ears. It is lightweight and the headband is soft like pillows but they haven't given a lot of padding at the top. Build quality is good. Headphones are made up of the plastic housing that is average in quality. Headphone can be spread wide which gives minimum pressure on your head.

How is Sound Performance of COWIN E7?
It uses 40 mm size Large-aperture Drivers. Normally we say the large drivers are better but that's not completely true here. It gives a clear sound but not crystal clear. I guess it's a Bluetooth connectivity issue that doesn't allow crystal clear sound. Though highs are good, bass is average. Until you activate noise cancelling mode it delivers a good audio experience but once you switch it to NC mode real issue starts. The noise-canceling feature is poor that you don't expect from any noise-canceling headphones.
If you are ready to pay more money you will get some better option if you seriously want the top class noise-canceling headphone. It looks more like noise-reducing headphones than noise canceling. It eliminates airplane's engine noise but does not cancel noises like snoring, talking, music, or high-frequency sounds. In short a decent sound with the Bluetooth mode with not so powerful bass but well balanced but noise cancellation is below average.
