Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creative Aurvana Live Headphones (Electronics)
I bought these headphones to replace a pair of Sennheiser HD201 Closed Back Headphones.
Whilst excellent value for money, the sound from these (the Sennheisers) was not as good as that from my speakers and so I only used the previous pair when I couldn't use my speakers.
I mainly use the headphones for PC gaming and occasional listening to music/browsing YouTube etc.
I did think that spending this much on headphones would be wasted, but thought I would "treat myself" and at first regretted spending so much on "just a pair of headphones".
Over the first week or so of use, however, I found myself using the headphones in preference to speakers - even when I didn't need to. I heard sounds in games I didn't know were there; the bass is incredibly rich and the whole range remarkably well defined.
Music and even YouTube clips sound just...better.
I have to say, they aren't quite as comfortable as the Sennheisers, as the ear pads are a little on the small side (my ears aren't that big - honest!) but this isn't a problem even with prolonged listening or gaming sessions.
Overall, despite initial doubts - brought on I think by my lack of experience in having high quality headphones - these are truly a revelation and worth every penny.
