Don't know about 98% reduction

Excerpt: Use it going to and from work on the train. Noise is not quite shut out with foam plugs. I expected a better isolation at 98% reduction but it does not seem that only 2% is coming thru. That said they are comfortable to wear and you do have to be careful not to use the cord in removing from your ears. I will purchase I think an extended warranty if it is available since the cord gives me pause about it's durability.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound
Cons: Cord Could Be Beefier, Too Much Ambient Noise
Summary: By blue_violin These are the best sounding ear buds I've ever owned, with a lovely balanced sound. Some have complained about the lack of bass, but they are better in this regard than the sets of Etymotics I used previously. By using the bass boost in the settings of my Ipod, the bass is just fine, at least for me. The packaging is very classy with a few different sizes of tips included. They are ingeniously designed to fit snugly in the ear.
Excerpt: The Aurvana In Ear 3's are impressive, not at first, I have several good earphones, but then I noticed the difference, it's in the musical detail. These earphones don't seem to alter the music, the bass is not boosted the treble isn't too bright or harsh. But it the way music sounds, what sounds like random percussion on some of my other earphones sounds like conga's on the Aurvana's what sounds like electronic bells on others sound like a cow bell on the Aurvana's.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Great Sound, Musical Detail
Summary: By Engr. Jay Mendoza The In-Ear 3 from Creative offers superb quality. I have been using the In-Ear 2 for a long time since its inception, and I have been very happy with the quality. I have tried several earphones for its price range*, and I know I am a proud owner of In-Ear2. And then In-Ear3 came out, with a hefty price tag. Even until now, the price stands at $150 from the official Creative store. I got one here at Amazon for under $99. What I got surprised me.
Very nice - my second impression was much better than the first

Summary: By Adam Wood My first impression of these wasn't positive, but I'm very glad that I gave them another chance. These headphones have a high sensitivity, so they'll play loud - but they will also make any noise in your amp pretty obvious. That second part led me to have a bad first impression of them because everything that I plugged them into at first had a loud hiss. I knew it wasn't the headphones, but I still didn't like it.
Summary: By Spence I couldn't believe how good these thing sound. They have a great range reproducing Bass, mids and trebles nicely giving you overall fantastic sound. I have a few sets of over the ear headphones including studio sets. I have to say for the price and for these being ear buds they hold their own very well in comparison. I have think for the price they are the best buy out there. You may want to note, if you are new to using ear buds.
Honestly a surprise but still some room for improvement.

Summary: By William Hardin There have been a TON of amazing reviews about sound quality as well as people doing an excellent job of comparing these to similar units, so I will focus on what hasn't been covered yet. Creative was Creative Labs and you likely owned a Sound Blaster sound card from them at one point. They moved into personal audio products such as MP3 players and speakers but it has been only recently that they have produced headphones of the quality that these are.
