Best Over-the-Ears for Under $100

Wired
5 April 2012
  • Excerpt: There are plenty of decent closed-back headphones hovering around the $100 mark. But I haven’t heard anything that hits the same of price/performance nirvana as the Creative Aurvana Live . Not only does this full-size headphone offer a supremely comfortable design, you’ll also get fantastic fidelity that belies its ridiculously low price tag.

  • Excerpt: Creative is all over the place when it comes to multimedia peripherals, ranging from soundcards to headphones. In this review we'll cover a popular set of headphones, the Creative Aurvana Live. It's now available in India, so it's time we gave it a close look… Design and Features One look at these headphones and you know that a lot of effort has gone into the design, what with a glossy black finish for the outer surface of the ear cups, married to a nice looking dark gun...

Creative Labs Aurvana Live! Headphones Review

BigPictureBigSound
8 April 2008
  • Conclusion: I'd be exaggerating if I said that these lightweight headphones should be the go-to pair for serious home listeners, but their versatility between sedentary and active use pleasantly surprised me. While the mere thought of wearing anything around my ears in the hot months ahead initially brought beads of sweat to my Italian brow, the comfort and sound of Aurvana Live! soon put any misgivings to rest.

Creative Aurvana Live Review

Digitaltrends
1 April 2008
  • Conclusion: In addition to pitting them against the TriPorts, we compared the Aurvana Live to less-expensive models like the Sennheiser HD280 Pro (originally $199.95 USD but usually found online for around $100) and the Sony MDR-V6 ($75 USD); the Aurvana came out favorably against the V6, but Sennheisers’ deep, prominent bass and lush comfort are hard to beat.
  • Pros: Well-balanced sound; comfortable padding; blocks most noises
  • Cons: Bulky non-folding design; ears get hot during use

  • Conclusion: One of the best things about Aurvana Live headphones is that they deliver solid sound quality across all genres of music. These are definitely everyman's cans. The headphones offer a nice balance across the highs, mids, and lows -- you don't get a sense that there is any leaning towards a particular spectrum of sound, which is nice for the average listener. Bass response is nice and tight, though not as thumping as some competitors.
  • Pros: Closed-back design can cause ears to sweat, Headphones don't fold down for easy transport, taking away from their portability
  • Cons: Comfortable design with little to no sound leakage, Sound quality is very good with a pronounced low-end, Useful extras such as a cable extender and 6.3mm adaptor
