Sound

The bass of Cowin E7 is on the weaker side of things, which does little to balance out the poor clarity.

Skullcandy Hesh 2 has strong, distortion-free audio with robust bass. Mids and highs are crisp and clear without sounding clipped.

Comfort and design

Cowin E7 is a quite heavy appliance as its weight is 386 g, while Skullcandy Hesh 2 weighs 180 g. An adjustable headband makes their use more convenient but it might be difficult to carry them because the headphones do not fold. Both appliances have a built-in microphone. The cable of Skullcandy Hesh 2 has an in-line microphone and remote which means you can field calls and control the headphones without having to reach in your pocket.
