Excerpt: Everyone looking for over-ear headphones that float around $100: read on! Creative recently released their Aurvana Live 2 over-ear headphones. They feature huge 40mm drivers, inline microphone and ...
Pros: Comfortable, Sound great, Affordable, Inline volume control and music/phone control, Great microphone, Travel pouch included, Band could be more durable and less plasticky, Cable is not universally replaceable with 3.5mm input
Cons: Comfortable, Sound great, Affordable, Inline volume control and music/phone control, Great microphone, Travel pouch included, Band could be more durable and less plasticky, Cable is not universally replaceable with 3.5mm input
Summary: The Creative Aurvana Live! 2 is a very good headset with no real flaws. The sound quality, build quality, isolation etc are all excellent. The headphone shines at almost every genre - music, games, movies that you throw at it.
Pros: Excellent sound quality in its price bracket, Excellent build quality, Good build quality, Excellent sound isolation, Very easy to drive
Cons: Price is a little steep in India compared the US MSRP.
Summary: This headphone sounds great and looks great as well. I have had this headphone for a couple months and no change in sound has occurred so this does not require burn-in.
The sound is V-shaped indeed but if you require a flatter response this headphones responds to and EQ very well.
Pros: Tight bass that extends really far, comfort, aesthetics, SOUNDSTAGE, sparkly treble (I love this aspect), pleasing to listen to for long periods.
Cons: Stock cable is pretty bad and cable replacement options are limited to one other, V-shaped sound signature, poor isolation
Summary: Had been selecting from Senheiser HD280Pro, Momentum Over Ear, Bose AE2, AudioTechnica ATH M50, Sony MDR 10RBT and this creatives.
This pair had given the best floor tom recognition (so you can even hear the resonant plast) without washing out the bass guitar.
Vocals, guitars are clear.
Summary: After buying these great pair of headphones, I tested on my iphone 5s and I was little dissapointed for the bass level that I was expecting. I compared this to the Audio Techinca's M40x. And the bass was really a difference.
Pros: Enough bass(for me), great clarity,
Cons: Uncomfortable when wear long, bass doesn't have the *boom* feel.
Hi! I'm new to Headfi here and this is my second review. I have just recently started to get interested in audio gear and am now trying to find the most cost effective headphones/iem for people who do not have much money to spend or are not willing to pay so much for a headphone/iem.
Pros: Powerful Deep Bass, Soundstage, Sparkly Treble, Appearance
Cons: Earcups are too thick*, Cable, Glossy finish*, Headband
Summary: I would like to thank Creative Singapore for the loan of Creative Aurvana Live 2 demo sample!
Launched in 2013, Creative Aurvana Live!
Pros: Natural, balanced, and pleasing sounding; Comfortable; Flat-fold earcups.
Cons: No plain cable without volume control for better quality sound.
Summary: The CAL! 2 is a big improvement over the first version.
Creative brands this as a "premium headphone" on the box, but is it?
First thing I noticed was the soundstage. It's MUCH better than the first CAL!. Much more air overall in the music. Good for movies as well.
