A quality pair of headphones is essential for work and play. Whether you're working from home or a busy office, enjoying your daily commute or enjoying a walk or run, having a pair of noise cancelling headphones handy can make even the most simple activities more enjoyable.
For those of us who don't enjoy earbuds and haven't jumped on the wireless earbuds bandwagon, there are plenty of affordable and comfortable headphones on Amazon, like the Cowin E7 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $68 (originally $79)
What is it?
The Cowin E7 headphones feature active noise cancelling technology that help lessen surrounding sounds so you can enjoy crisp, high quality listening experience.

Enjoy up to 30 hours of play and talk time and easy listening with the ultra-lightweight headphones that include soft ear pads for comfortable wear.
What people are saying
Customer reviews play a big factor when making a purchase through Amazon. Cowin E7 headphones currently have more than 39,000 five star reviews online, making them Amazon's Choice for wireless headphones. Shoppers have called Cowin's headphones a solid option for anyone looking for affordable wireless headphones that deliver quality sound.
"These headphones are spectacular! I bought a pair for both my husband and myself to use primarily at the gym, and I'm so glad I did!" one shopper wrote. "They cover the ear so nicely - no discomfort or slipping. The sound reminds me of surround sound, probably because I has small ears, We've been using them everyday, and have barely charged them at all. My hubby loves wearing them around the house as well! Highly recommend this product."
"The comfort and sound quality of these headphones are very good," another Amazon customer said. "They completely cover my ears and as a result, even without active noise cancellation, provide the quiet I prefer when listening to music or movies or whatever else. With the active noise cancelling turned on, it's eerily silent, almost as if you were in a vacuum in outer space and the sound quality is still excellent. The fit and finish are excellent and I quite like the overall design of them. I have paired these headphones to numerous devices without issue and the sound quality is the same regardless. I would definitely recommend this headphone and the price is reasonable."
Although Cowin's headphones are great for their price point, they might not live up to the standards of some audiophiles. Some customers have said that they've had to turn up the volume on their device fairly high while some have said they might not be the best option for anyone looking who will be using them to primarily take calls.
If you're looking for something to wear while you're working from home that will allow you to make calls handsfree, you might want to look into something like a USB Headset with Noise Cancelling Microphone Computer Headset from Beebong or the AIKELA V5.0 Bluetooth Headset with Charging Station. They won't provide the same kind of listening experience, but they might be better suited to your needs.
If you're working in a small space and need to drown out background noise to focus on the task at hand or simply want a pair of wireless headphones to enjoy podcasts and music, the Cowin E7 headphones might be for you. They provide long listening time and are designed to be comfortable -unlike some earbuds or wireless earbuds.
