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: By David K. Watson "DKW" The Creative Aurvana Live! Headphones are an acceptable quality mid-range set of headphones. They are surprisingly comfortable when used for extended periods of time. I was able to wear them for as long as six hours with no hearing fatigue or physical discomfort. I wore them with and without eyeglasses and a nasal canula looped behind my ears. I did not experience any additional discomfort when wearing either or both of these devices.
Summary: By Maclen Sound quality is very important to me so I've auditioned many headphones over the years. After trying a set of Creative Aurvana Live! headphones, I found them to be a solid performer. They easily hold they're own against other sets in the mid-level price range. I often listen to music for hours at a time so comfort is important. Because of their light weight and soft cushions, the headphones were easy to wear for extended periods of time.
Summary: By Erik1988 PORTABILITY: These are surprisingly light, making it easy to take around with you. Also, the handy carrying bag gives you a pair of draw strings to loop your hand through for easy of carrying. CORD LENGTH: At first I was concerned the cord was a little too short to have the mp3 player in my pocket while wearing the headphones, but it was just enough. If I needed a bit more length on the cord, they were nice enough to provide a 3-4ft extension cord. Nice!
Summary: By Truth Teller I am surprisingly pleased with these and find the sound to be very nice overall. In addition, the sound isolation is very good. I couldn't hear a word my wife said to me from three feet away while music was playing. At first I was going to say they seemed muddy in the mids, but then after spending a little time playing with my equalizer I found that I just had an equalizer setting that wasn't favorable to them.
Summary: The Creative Aurvana Live! is a closed headphone that I recently had the opportunity to try and I believe that it is definitely one of the best ” value for money” purchase as well as an excellent headphone at the sub 100 cost.The Creative Aurvana Live! is an offering from the Aurvana range of products that Creative offers (as we’ll have it for my typing comfort sake!) is a deceptively simple looking pair of headphones.
Pros: good clean sound, balanced presentation with warmth. Great comfort.
Summary: When you do hours of research and actually go and spend your money on something that cost more than you wanted to spend, you aren't exactly "thrilled" about taking it everywhere with you on daily commutes. Which is why after dishing out $100+ on a pair of Shure Headphones I decided to search for a pair of headphones that sounded great, and I didn't mind taking everywhere.
Summary: BEST VALUE FOR MONEY
Finally I can send my Superlux 668B where they belong - into the trashcan. Due to a discount at the german Creative store website, I was able to order the Aurvana Live for 49€ (equals ~62$).
Lots of plastic, but seems durable and well crafted, also nice to look at. Dueto the little weight and the well adjustable headband, they're superbly comfortable, even for guys with bull shaped skulls (like me^^).
Sound : The good
The Aurvana Live!
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: 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. Nothing about them says "hey, here's $300 on this guy's head." And yet, that's what they feel like, and that's what they sound like.
Pros: Clean sound with decent bass and a good soundstage. Lightweight and comfortable. Inexpensive and rather low-key in a good way.
