    Creative Technology today announced their latest Aurvana Air earphones. Using premium materials and Creative's EaseFit ear-hook design, the new Aurvana Air earphones will provide listeners with superior comfort over long hours of extended use. The Aurvana Air earphones have a 1.2 m long Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) cable, a gold-plated 3.5 mm jack and come carefully placed in a leather carrying bag. Each earphone holds one 15.5 mm Neodymium magnet driver, with frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, impedance of 32 ohms and sensitivity of 102 dB/mW at 1 kHz. The Creative Aurvana Air earphones are supposedly arriving at stores now, and they should cost around 200 Euro (ouch). For more information, please click here.

    At that price I could have gotten AKG K701, Senn HD600, Grados SR80... etc... So they have a hard time living up to its price...

    Could almost get the Logitech Z-5500 lol with that much. I know audiophiles are probably all over these, but €200 for earphones is just wrong lol, especially when you can get a pretty good pair for €30, I wouldn't spend more than €100 on headphones, probably no more than €30 on earphones, I spent €60 on a pair of subwoofer headphones, that's a lot even for me lol.

    The ones that came bundled with my sony mp3 satisfy me 100%, that model should be worth some 40$ if sold separately, its bass is what i love the most and i dont believe if was to spend 200 on a new pair i would be more satisfied than i am now, they might be a little better but whats in it for costing all that money??

    MAJOR fail.

    You can get SO much better for the money.

    While I like the design, every other Creative heatphone ever has been bad.

    all form, no function. i'm willing to bet my $40 earbuds sound better than these, and they don't look half as gaudy.

    You could probably get something that sounds better in an earbud form factor for €200. Like for instance Yuin PK1 / OK1 hell I bet even the PK2s and OK2s and 3s will sound better than these Creative buds. If you want designer buds that sound great get the B&O A8 which sound good but not quite up to the Yuin's standard.
     
    Random Murderer says thanks.
