5.0 out of 5 stars Bose beating audio?, 11 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Creative Aurvana Air Nickel Titanium Premium in-ear Earphones with Flexible Ear Hook Design for Active Sports Use (Electronics)
I spent a lot of time reading reviews and trying earphones, and I think these are just about the best value for money around. I've compared them to the Bose earphones and I think these sound better, and for me have a better design as they stay where you put them if running or out and about. I've not had a listen to the B&O earphones which look very similar, but they are way more expensive!

I've used these earphones for about a month now and they are without doubt the best sounding in ear headphones I've ever used. Previously I had owned a pair of apple earphones (that came with the iPod and were awful), and also a pair of Creative EP630s. I really like the EP630s, the bass and noise isolation are excellent, but they lack detail and crispness.

The Aurvana Air earphones do lack a little bass, but I simply up the bass with my iPod when using them which seems to work fine. The detail in the music is soo much better, to the point that I'm starting to think that I need a better audio player! You really can hear more detail, particularly in things like symbol clashes or the strumming of an acoustic guitar.

The design works really well for me too, they are very light and fit well around the ears. They seem to keep themselves in place very well. One thing in particular which I really like is the lack of noise the cable makes when it rubs against your clothes. All of the earphones I've used before make a real racket when they even lightly brush against your clothes, with these I never notice.

So in short if noise isolation is important, these are not for you, but if you want great sound I highly recommend them.

Now you have had these for nearly 2 years I wonder if you would care to comment on the longevity. I had a pair of Creative earphones some time ago but they did not last very long as one of the cables broke inside the plastic casing
Thanks

Excellent - thank you for that as they are currently on offer from Creative's web site at £59.99. I had the previous Aurvana Earphones and the quality was great but no sooner were they out of warranty than the connection to one of the ears broke
