4 out of 5 stars

Creative have improved the durability of these earphones. Expert Reviews said that they felt sturdier though they would have preferred detachable cables. The Creative Labs Auravana In-Ear 3 earphones have a dedicated subwoofer, giving them more bass than other similar balanced armature models. Overall quality is good but they are costly and face a lot of competition.

"Best Buy"

IT Reviews were most pleased with the Aurvana In-Ear3s, saying that they looked great, were comfortable to wear and sounded fantastic with any genre of music they cared to throw at them. They present a deep and expansive soundstage that's enhanced by their excellent noise isolation and attention to detail, making them a top-notch, if a bit expensive, choice.

There's very little to fault in Creative's Aurvana In-Ear3 earphones, since their sound quality is top notch, with no noticeable frequency colouring, and their noise reduction capabilities are simply superb. However, TechRadar found them a bit too expensive considering it's possible to find much cheaper models offering the same audio quality from other brands such as Shure.

“Our recommendation”

“The latest generation of the Creative Aurvana is impressive: not only does it completely block out ambient noise, this model also fits very comfortably even after prolonged use. The Creative in-ears also perform extremely well when it comes to audio: even the finest melodies sound spacious, clear and measured when they melt onto the eardrum of users lucky enough to be wearing a pair of these in ears. Its passive crossover network means these cans don’t come a cropper, even when playing songs with a dominant bass. Be it slow tracks with a deep bass or songs which quickly alternate between high and low tones, this set of headphones always sounds rich and voluminous. ...”
