Summary: By Doug Erlandson The Creative Aurvana Live headphones are everything one would want in a set of headphones and more. Whether listening to something on my computer or using them as I work out, they produce top-quality sound and effectively block out external noise. (This is particular important when listening in a noisy area, such as at the gym.) Moreover, they fit perfectly and are extremely comfortable. I can listen for long periods of time without any discomfort.
Pros: These are the best pair of headphones I could have asked for. I have owned them for about four years and I thought I should pay it forward for the good years of services they've given me and write my very first review.
Cons: Just this past month I broke one of the hinges and had to epoxy it back together, but I dropped them pretty good so thats fair. Cords are a little short, which can be a good or a bad thing because they definitely wont reach to the back of a computer tower on the ground without an extender (they wont get tangled up either and are perfect length for your pocket!).
Pros: The sound is very good! Much better than any headset I have tried under $150, very light, warm sounding, soundstage is decent for closed headphones
Cons: The top of the headband has some odd pressure points that I find uncomfortable over long periods, but may be due to the lack of breaking it in. Also some distortion in the highs and lows during very bass heavy songs.
Summary: Cost: $60 US Recommended: YES Compared against my Audio Technica ATH-M50's Looks: Simply designed with no extra flair sans some reflective ear cups. Each ear cup is clearly labeled for left and right. Leather ear pads, a slim headband, and 3ft rubber insulated cord finish off the Aurvana Live. Construction: The cord is nice and durable and the stereo connector is small enough to fit into my ipod ( with plastic cover ).
Excerpt: You need to pay much more to get this quality form more preistigous brands. You just need to more practical and not to take care about brand and be happy with greate sound. Just chec deep test on web.
Summary: By Francisco Silveira First of all I've been a regular read/poster on a headphone forum, and an avid bargain finder. I think you should look for the best quality you can get for your money, and that fits your needs. These use the same driver as the Denon AH-D1001, inside a more spacious (and in my opinion, pretty) enclosure. If you listen to hip-hop, dubstep, drum 'n bass, reggae or anny bass-heavy genre, these are for you.
