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.
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.
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.
Great Sound and fit, but it needs more to be superior.

Summary: By SSJ3X Pros - New housing offers an ergonomic earlobe fit for sound isolation. - Dual driver headphone with crossovers that offer very comfortable and tight sound with various music genre. - Music does not distort even at high volume. - Port (tube) has a split partition at the center to clean up the highs and mids. - Price point. Cons - Weak cable. - straight plugin as oppose to the 90 degree angle plug in. - port (tube) of the headphone has become wider.
Summary: First of all, big thanks once again to headphones.com for making this review possible =)
Getting right to the nitty gritty (Sound):
-The general signature of the Aurvana 3 is warm, mid-centric, relaxing. Bass id say is above neutral. Tight, more mid-bass than sub-bass, decent amount of impact when the track calls for it, extends down to 30hz before it starts to drop off.
Pros: Comfortable, sound is easy on the ears, plenty of accessories
Summary: In the past, I have always found two consistent problems with all noise-isolating earphones that I have tried: - they do isolate external sound quite well, but the sound quality is not that great, particularly the bass frequencies - the silicone tips simply don't grip enough to keep the earphones in my ears when moving around, even just walking about These Aurvanas are the most premium noise-isolating earphones I have tried so far, and they are clearly the best.
Summary: Sound is great, previously had a pair of Shure 425, sound compares very well, very clean. Bass not particularly strong if thats what your looking for, but I'm not. I only worry about the durability. Cables are quite thin and unlike the shures cannot be replaced.
Good noise isolation, reasonable quality, but not overwhelmed by sound

Summary: I must admit, I was slightly underwhelmed by the initial impression I got upon trying out these earphones. I've been using Creative's Aurvana Air earphones for a while and found those to provide phenomenal sound quality, so I was hoping for even better from these, given their bold claims of multiple drivers and "a set of studio speakers which fit in your ear".
