Cobra ESD 7570 Review

28th Mar,2019

If you are searching for reasonable as well as trustable radar detection, the Cobra ESD 7570 9 Band Performance Radar Laser Detector with 360 Degree Detection would not disappoint you. 

With a budget-friendly offer, would this radar detector give a good performance for your drives?



Well, we think that with components like 360-degree recognition, the capacity to recognize all radar and laser signals in the U.S and Canada, the Cobra ESD 7570 9-Band is a steal, but let’s zoom in on its design, features and other aspects.

Design-wise, the Cobra ESD 7570 seems a lot like a hybrid between the ESD 7100 and XRS 888

Needless to say, its form is a sleek-looking eye-pleaser, yet the material used seemed to be a bit plastic-y, which can make it difficult to take this gadget seriously.

Although what it lacks in material quality gets compensated by its detailing, we want to focus on the functional physical aspects of the design.

This includes buttons for on/off, mute, DIM, and City Mode, while a scroll for volume is situated conveniently on its left side for a quick reach by its user.



The detector has a diverse range when on the roadway and in city mode. 

On a highway mode, the assessed reach is can go as far as 0.5 miles, which gives you adequate time to respond when the alarm goes off. The range can go roughly 4 to 5 blocks when on City Mode.


This radar detector has an UltraBright Display that gives clear and easily readable notifications and warnings. The DIM button on the top right-hand side of the detector makes it easy to control the brightness of the data display.

You can choose between 3 levels of brightness for the screen: dim, faint and brilliant. Just a few presses on the button can let you switch between the brightness levels, which you can do anytime as you please.

Mute Button

Sound signals are part of the alarm of this radar detector. 

Once it picks up a signal, the sound goes off. When the constant sound gets distracting or annoying, a quick tap on the mute button will silence the gadget until you press it again to bring back the sound alerts back on again.

Highway / City Mode

The Cobra ESD 7570 9 Band Performance Radar Laser Detector with 360 Degree Detection gives the options of picking between Highway and City mode. 

By default, the industrial facility setting is in Highway mode but in just a press of a button, it can be switched to City mode.

This can optimize the detection abilities of the radar detector, especially when moving from the main road to a more dense city road. 

One beep and a “C” on the display indicate that the device is on City Mode while pressing the button again will give two beeps to note that you are back on Highway mode.


Both audio and visual alerts on the Cobra ESD 7570 are remarkable, thanks to its great display and clear sounds. 

The display shows a bar graph whenever it picks up a signal, indicating its strength which will allow you to determine the approximate distance of the signal source.

A beep warning accompanies this notification, which of course can be adjusted in terms of volume. 

An alert to let you know that there is an ambulance or another emergency vehicle allows you to react immediately (pullover or go to the side of the road) to let the vehicle pass.


Q: What accessories should I purchase with this model?

A: Commonly bought with the Cobra ESD 7570 are the straight power cord and car dash & windshield mount for easier installation and constant power supply to the device.

Q: Does this device have safety alerts?

A: Yes, it does. The Cobra ESD 7570 has The Safety Alert transmitters exclusive to Cobra gadget, which can give warning on a railroad crossing, locations with road hazards, as well as approaching emergency vehicles.

Cobra ESD 7570 Review Conclusion

Overall, considering its price and year of launch, we think that Cobra ESD 7570 is a pretty decent device to depend on for casual drives. 

Sure, it misses some areas like a variety of bandwidth or detection accuracy, but for its price point, its performance isn’t all that bad. 

The detection in different directions coupled with the ability to be undetected, for newbies and low-budgeted folks, this one is a good buy.
