Review: Creative Aurvana Live!

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 .
  • Pros: Outstanding value — can frequently be found online for despite being able to pass for a headphone costing three times as much. Unbeatable comfort. Deep ear cups with a wide range of motion made these the most comfortable in the test. Manages to deliver bass o’ plenty while never sounding over-blo...
  • Cons: Plastic o’ plenty feels slightly cheap and fragile. Cups don’t fold down for better transportation. No removable cord.

Creative Aurvana Live Review

Digitaltrends
5 January 2010
  • 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,...

  • Summary: BEST VALUE FOR MONEY Finally I can send my Superlux 668B where they belong - into the trashcan. Due to a discount at the german Creative store website, I was able to order the Aurvana Live for 49€ (equals ~62$).
  • Pros: Nicely detailed, laid back, broad and even frequency bandwidth
  • Cons: Deep bass is slightly unprecise, some classic orchestra can be a bit squishy

  • Summary: These are hard to review especially at the 50 dollar price point. At that price it's probably going to be one of the best headphones you can get in terms of pure sound detail. But I would be remiss to not mention that it is very very V-shaped. I miss the mids.
  • Pros: Great detail, V-shaped sound works for much of popular music
  • Cons: Very very V-shaped, feels like a part of the spectrum is missing, literally the cheapest most breakable plastic.

  • Summary: i can only compare these to my sony mdr cd 770 and my dad's beyerdynamic dt 990 premium as well as some koss porta pros. i haven't had them for that long yet but i like the construction and that they're light. they clamp pretty tight on the head and are comfortable enough to wear for longer periods.
  • Pros: overall good sound quality, lightweight, sit good on the head
  • Cons: deepest bass, not super comfortable but ok, sound isolation

  • Summary: The Creative Aurvana Live! solved a major problem for me—how to listen to good audio while walking the dog at night. I live near a commercial and bar district in Center City, Philadelphia and I'm not interested in attracting attention with my headphones. Enter the CALs.
  • Pros: Clean sound with decent bass and a good soundstage. Lightweight and comfortable. Inexpensive and rather low-key in a good way.
  • Cons: The cord does not inspire confidence.
