Simply put, the Aurvana In-Ear3 is all about audio enjoyment at its best.

1. Do they sound good?
2. Do they insulate your ears from the depredations of the outside world?
The Creative Aurvana In-Ear3s go some way to satisfying both conditions.
The earphones arrive suspended in clear plastic. The box was nice enough for me to want to keep it and there were a remarkable number of accessories packed into the small space: a plethora of earbuds, a cleaning tool, a carrying case, and there was still room for the warranty and instruction leaflet.
The headphones themselves look fantastic, with a glossy dark coppery finish and a slick shape. They'll definitely separate you from the crowds of dull black CX300s and white Ipod buds.
Since the level of isolation is heavily dependent on the buds fitting snug in your lugholes, it's a good thing that Creative have provided so many different sizes. I tried just about all of them and the difference between a poor fit (the small ones) to a great fit (the foam plugs) is huge. I went from barely hearing the music to being blasted with sound when a proper isolation was found.
Here are some settings I tested the isolation in:
At Work - The dull conversations of my workmates were turned into faint, unintelligible rumblings while I was actually listening to something, but during quiet parts of songs or pauses in speech, I was still able to hear them. The isolation is good, but it isn't complete.
On the bus/train - The earbuds are perfect for travelling on the bus and train.Read more ›
- they do isolate external sound quite well, but the sound quality is not that great, particularly the bass frequencies
- the silicone tips simply don't grip enough to keep the earphones in my ears when moving around, even just walking about
These Aurvanas are the most premium noise-isolating earphones I have tried so far, and they are clearly the best. They look, feel and sound premium compared to the others. The bass is rich and full, the sound is well balanced, and they are a pleasure to listen to even in quiet environments when you don't need to block out any noise. They feel quite solid and weighty due to the decent build quality, and yet the inventive design with the over-ear cable loops means they stay put, even when I move about.
Now I don't really agree that they block out "up to 98%" of noise, but they do significantly reduce distracting background noises in an office/transport environment. They're certainly much better than any other earphone I have tried, other than my active noise-cancelling Sennheiser PXC 450 - NoiseGard Active Noise Canceling Headphones. The supplied cable winder, travel pouch and aeroplane adaptor make these ideal for taking on holiday, especially if space is tight.
If you're looking for noise-isolating earphones that sound great, block out quite a lot of background noise, and don't fall out when you move about, these are an excellent option. Highly recommended.
Even though they don't have a hope of recreating the experience of studio speakers, the Aurvana In-Ear3s are still pretty good for 'phones of their type. In fact, they're better than good; they're great. The dual driver design produces balanced, well-defined audio, the build quality and presentation are excellent, and they fit more easily and comfortably than any other in-ear headphones I've ever tried. This last is thanks largely to the fact that the cables go over the tops of your ears, meaning there's less pull on them.
Don't be coaxed into thinking the In-Ear3s are "micro studio speakers", but for listening to mixes when there's no other option - possibly when you're on the move and noise isolation is important - you could do a lot worse.
