Review: Creative Aurvana Live!


There are plenty of decent closed-back headphones hovering around the $100 mark. But I haven't heard anything that hits the same of price/performance nirvana as...

Outstanding value — can frequently be found online for despite being able to pass for a headphone costing three times as much. Unbeatable comfort. Deep ear cups with a wide range of motion made these the most comfortable in the test. Manages to deliver...

Creative Aurvana Live


Creative's Aurvana line of headphones has a new member, the Aurvana Live, which complement the existing in-ear Zen Aurvana and noise-canceling Aurvana X-Fi headphones. The new model is a set of regular full-size cans that fit all the way around your...

Well-balanced sound; comfortable padding; blocks most noises

Bulky non-folding design; ears get hot during use

the Aurvana Live are worthy cans, with very good comfort and well-balanced tone at a reasonable price.

Creative Aurvana Live! review: Creative Aurvana Live!


Creative Labs has made quite a name for itself in the digital audio market, first with its Sound Blaster sound cards for the PC and continuing with its excellent line of

The Aurvana Live headphones offer a comfortable design with little to no sound leakage. Sound quality is very good with a pronounced low-end, and Creative includes useful extras such as a cable extender and quarter-inch adapter.

The Aurvana Live's closed-back design can cause ears to sweat. The headphones don't fold down for easy transport, taking away from their portability.

The Creative Aurvana Live headphones offer balanced audio response and a comfortable, closed-back design that won't leak sound. They're a great choice for the average listener who wants to enjoy private audio in the home.

Creative Aurvana LIVE! Headphones Review


The iPod has made wearing headphones cool again, and often cool includes big, traditional sized full range headphones like I used to wear while listening to my stereo rig as a kid. In the late 70's and early 80's, if I wanted to rock out at night, I...

classy, understated styling ; lightweight ; full range sound

mostly plastic construction ; not very portable ; sound bleeds out of headphones

The Creative Aurvana Live! headphones are lightweight, comfortable, sound great and are reasonably priced. They never sounded harsh to my ears, which to me is a critical test for headphones. While they do not offer any active noise canceling, the...

The Aurvana's vivid performance and ultra-lightweight design are indicative of their $150 price tag. The headphones transcend the boundaries of consumer use as an ideal solution for the casual listener or the voracious audiophile. Considering that the...

Creative Aurvana Live Headphones


The audio mavens at Creative seek to usurp the dominance of earbuds with an alternative that looks more impressive and sounds a hell of a lot better.

I'd be exaggerating if I said that these lightweight headphones should be the go-to pair for serious home listeners, but their versatility between sedentary and active use pleasantly surprised me. While the mere thought of wearing anything around my...

Review: Creative Aurvana Live! High-Definition Personal Audio


Of the two headphones, Aurvana Live! is unquestionably the better-sounding. Using bio cellulose diaphragm drivers to deliver what Creative claims is "revolutionary performance" for the price, the Live! headphones are surprisingly light by earcup-style...

Overall, Aurvana Live! is a nice-looking, very good-sounding, and reasonably priced pair of headphones that we'd recommend to readers interested in earcups for at-home listening, but as with most headphones, Live!'s suitability for portable use is...

Creative Aurvana Live


Creative is all over the place when it comes to multimedia peripherals, ranging from soundcards to headphones. In this review we'll cover a popular set of headphones, the Creative Aurvana Live. It's now available in India, so it's time we gave it a...

At Rs 9999 the Creative Aurvana Live is expensive, so it loses few marks there. But if the listener likes to be isolated and immersed sonically, these are a great choice. The lack of tightness and thump stops me from placing them in the realm of...
