5.0 out of 5 stars Avant-garde Acoustic Masterpiece, 23 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)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
DESIGN/USE
These earphones won a Red Dot Award for product design in 2009. They are a joy to behold, even more so when they're in their packaging. The downside to this is that it can feel like you're in The Krypton Factor when you're trying to get them out for the first time. This can be a bit irritating when you're eager to find out how they sound.

They're definitely not designed for quickly putting on and taking off, but once they're on they're so light and unobtrusive you can forget they're there. The so-called "Flexnium" design makes them incredibly comfortable and resistant to unwanted movement.

They come with a leather carry pouch and cable tidy and two sets of foam ear buds. These buds are quite awkward to attach and delicate; they need to be stretched thoroughly before you try to put them on (I tore two before realising this). I would have liked a volume control where the earphones' wires converge, but this is only a personal preference.

SOUND
As you'd expect for this price, the clarity is fantastic. Bass is good but not overwhelming. I've tried them with an iPod touch (vast improvement over Apple's phones), an iMac (great), and an HDTV (excellent, especially for when you're lying down and headphones are too cumbersome).

OVERALL
I like these earphones. They're the most comfortable phones I've ever worn. Light as "Air". They sound good. They look good. The aptness of the "Aurvana" moniker is dependent upon what you listen to though!
