This is my second set. So comfortable don’t notice they are present. Sound is much better than any other earphones. I use them for walking and slow jogging.
i consider myself a bit of an audiophile and i absolutely love the sound coming out if these i own a lot of headphones and earbuds and these are top notch, they pair easily and music sound awesome in them, and also when using them with your phone making and receiving calls is simply and the audio quality is great, i now prefer these over a separate bluetooth headset for the calls, i'm going to be using these from now on another important thing to mention is great battery life and also very comfortable fit for long hours of daily use i highly recommend these
I use this headphone to listen to music.
And use noise canceling function to cancel air-condition noise.
The battery life is very long. I can use it all day!
1. Appearance: the HE5A does not disappoint at all, good looking headphones, All black with a Crome band at the ear plugs. Nice strong plastic but flexible and soft enough to go hug securely around your neck. They stay firm around you neck while the wires with the earpieces attaches firmly together with a magnet which makes it feel secure in your neck while not using to hear music or placing a call. The ear cushions are soft and fit confortable at the entrance off the ear canal. Even jumping or running this earpieces wont fall down. With several size in ear cushions that can adapt for each person ear shape. The controls are easy to use on one side while the USB port stand at the other side.
2. Sound quality: I connected to my IPhone XS to listen music from the cloud and the sound was clear and perfect, rich and in tune. When I walked to the street I activated the Active Noise Control and it muffle the street and car sounds like I would be using a regular over the ear headphone. In my opinion it reduce outside noice to a nice 80%even 90% barely hear the car and traffic and of course playing music make it even better no distraction from the outside. Just my music and me. I play from classical to Rock to Techno and Trance and the sound was perfect each time with each kind of music.; at the Gym it reduces the noice of machines and people almost completely so all you hear is your music.
3. MIC function: making calls was easy, just like dialing, the music stop, and the call takes over. Very clear sound and the micrfono as well people in the other side though I just change phones because could hear me perfectly like I were taking from inside a building. Very clear and without weird noises or cuts like sometimes happen in other Bluetooth headpieces. When you receive a call it actually tells you about the incoming call.
4. Comfort: confort its key with every headphone, the HE5A are very comfortable round the neck and in place around my ears if were not for the wires that ...
Perfect travel earphones. The active noise reduction is amazing - as good, if not better, than my big Bose 35 headset. The sound is clear, even at low levels, which I can use, now that the background noise is just gone. The controls are easy to use by touch, including volume, song up/down and ANC on/off. Incredible value, highly recommended. I bought a second pair for a friend.
I liked that you can wear the headphones for long periods of time and they have pretty good sound quality for the price. Another nice feature is how they sit on your neck. I have have had many different headphones pull out of my ears when running or working out due to how the connecting wire is designed; however, these are actually really good at staying in place and activity does not put stress on the earbuds.
The ANC works decently well, but it's not going to drown out every outside sound (which I personally like).
Pros: Comfort, Decent ANC, Connecting wire designed well
Cons: Buttons are at times hard to press and find
All in all would totally recommend these headphones, and Cowin customer support has been stellar in the past for other products.
