Great sound but uncomfortable and poor RMA service

Pros: Great sound
Cons: Headband is very uncomfortable and it hurt my head for the first weeks wearing these. The earpads broke and i had to spend 10$ to ship it to them to get it fixed with an RMA b/c of their product's terrible workmanship.
Summary: By Can Sinan Artuc I have 12 headphones and 5 IEMs. This one is my 13rd of headphones and w.r.t. its price, Creative Aurvana Live! is really unbelievable. I have also Sennheiser Momentum (on ear and over ear models) and ATH M50. The most of the reviews are compared Aurvana to these headphones so I would like to do it so. Creative Aurvana Live! is much better than Momentum on ear as sound quality and comfort. I listen Rock, Metal and Classical music while working.
Summary: I still can't believe just how great these are. The balance is excellent. If you have a neutral or slightly bassy preference, these are the ticket in this price range.
Pros: Excellent sound quality for the price range. I'm fairly certain these are unbeatable at this budget. They're rebranded Denon's with Fostex drivers. They're also very durable, and the cord is long enough to reach anywhere (with the included extension). Mine have lasted over a year without any issues. They're also extremely comfortable, even for glasses wearers.
Cons: Headband could use some more padding. Discomfort in the band area can be noticed after 5+ hours of wear.
Summary: In my opinion, well worth it and as of now, I would certainly recommend them to anyone.
Pros: I was looking for headphones for quite awhile, not wanting to spend $200-$300 on any of them, as much as I would have liked the high end kind, it just wasn't what I need. I only wanted headphones for hanging out on the computer and listening to music while browsing or working on here. I really didn't want to spend much at all, just something comfortable and good sound since my old ones have seen better days. But, I also didn't want anything cheap with low quality soun...
Cons: The only "con" I would even consider is the extension cable that came with it but even that isn't much of an issue for me. It's just tiny and one would think it would split in half just by looking at it. I've used it on and off all day and it delivers a great signal so I'm happy for now...
Summary: They feel kind of...cheap. Like they would be easily broken. I haven't had any problem with them though, and I've been using them for over six months now.
Pros: Very comfortable ear cups. Sound is excellent for games...don't listen to much music through them so cannot comment on that.
Cons: The top of the headband hurts the top of my head after 45 mins or so, so I have to keep re-positioning them every once in a while. This is the first pair of headphones I've owned in close to 10 years (long time earbuds user), so I may just not be used to them yet.
Summary: By carpe_noctum I loved these headphones, infact I loved them so much I purchased another one. Then my kid broke one when he slept with on. The second one broke too...exactly in the same place...this was just with normal use when I removed it from my head. At $80 I'd expect a bit more reliability. I would not even complain if it was possible to buy replacement parts from Creative, but no dice. See attached image of broken headsets!
Excerpt: I am an avid gamer and I listen to a lot of music, so I was looking for a pair or headphones that could handle both really well, with a preference toward a bassy sound. After doing a lot of research online, I found the Creative Aurvana Live.This website had the best price, so I went ahead and ordered it.It arrived a week or so later; and I was pumped, cause I'd heard great things about it.
Pros: Ambient Sound Reduction, Balanced sound, Comfortable, Compact, Good Directional Sound, Good Value, Great Detail, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
For hi-fi sound at a low price, it's hard to beat Creative's Aurvana Live! After almost a year of use, they are still holding up well.

Summary: Aurvana Live! headphones from Creative solved a major problem for me—how to listen to hi-fi audio while walking the dog at night in my South Philly neighborhood. I live near a restaurant and bar district in Center City, Philadelphia, and I'm not interested in attracting attention because of my headphones. Enter the Aurvanas. Nothing about them says, "Hey, there's $300 sitting on this guy's head." And yet, that's how they sound.
Pros: Clean sound with good bass response. Lightweight and comfortable. Inexpensive and rather low-key in a good way.
Summary: By J. Mcdougal I had these headphones for about a month. I really loved the sound, and they were quite comfortable. But the build quality is really bad. The left headphone cup broke off. I did not do anything abusive to the headphones. The left cup just snapped off. Highly disappointed.
