These headphones are like Beats by Dre except they don’t cost a car payment

Earbuds are like McDonald’s. When you’re listening to podcasts, working out or generally just bouncing around out in the world, earbuds do the job and hit the spot in the moment. But if you really want to feel music sink in, languishing in sound in that immersive way only the right songs can reach, satisfying hunger doesn’t do it anymore. You don’t need a burger. You need filet mignon.

Quality over-ear headphones like the Cowin E7 Pro Noise Cancelling Wireless pair (on sale now for $78.99, 12 percent off, from TNW Deals) are for true music fans who don’t just listen to music — they hear the music.

The Cowin E7s execute the type of sound quality you expect from premium headphones, powered by proprietary 45mm large-aperture drivers that deliver everything from crisp, delicate treble to rumbling, bowel-shaking bass.

Meanwhile, the unit’s Adaptive Noise Cancelling (ANC) feature not only makes sure that gorgeous soundscape remains pristine, but it can also serve as an amazing deterrent when you just want to make the rest of the planet go away for a while.

These headphones sport an expansive, 600mAh 30-hour battery life. And if you’re gonna wear a set of over-ear headphones for more than a day, you’ll also appreciate the economically-minded professional protein earpad and 90-degree swiveling earcup cushioning, along with the extra attention paid to keeping long-term listeners comfortable.

With Bluetooth connectivity, the Cowin E7s also use a built-in, voice-optimized mic to field phone calls seamlessly.

While the music obviously matters most, saving a few bucks never hurts either — so right now, the Cowin E7s are available at $11 off the regular price for a limited time.
