    "I bought these to try and help me focus in the office. The "open" environment just stinks for people like me who get distracted by conversations next to my desk. These work great at noise cancelling but geeze, they feel kind of cheap in the build. I'm glad I'm not going to be traveling anywhere with them. I'd be worried about them breaking. For $349 I think they're a bit overpriced."

    "I liked these, it is cool that you can use them for noise cancellation without a device. But they are not worth it at this price, they are not made with the best quality."

    "The Cowin E7 headphone are, in my experience, the best sound-canceling headphones on the market. I work from home in a loud environment and have used these to help me work more productively. I seem to be at my best with some music playing softly yet without any other noise. I tried a variety of brands and settled on the Cowin E7 as my final choice. I also like that they have a built-in microphone and that there are no wires. They have been a great choice!"

    "As we all may know that Samsung devices a little bit overpriced; also this headphone is. It is very stylish and it does a great job, but you can definitely find a better one than this with this price. I would trust Samsung with any screen or TV but they should leave the headphone job to others."
