Creative Labs Aurvana In-Ear2

by

With the growth of portable audio and video, earphones/earbuds have become a necessity. Yet not all are created equal. If you are seeking a high quality portable experience look to Creative Labs Aurvana In-Ear2. This sequel to their award-winning Aurvana In-Ear headphones continues their trend of noise isolation technology in a comfortable, lightweight, convenient style. Creative Labs has enhanced sound quality over gen 1.

Having tested on an airplane, in the gym and just sitting at home I can say highs and lows were easily achieved. Bass was no problem, yet not overwhelming. Ambient noise was dissipated and volume levels were maintained – which will help you hear what you want to hear. The outer world will not disrupt your video, music or podcast while using Aurvana In-Ear2. They also did a great job of blocking others from hearing my material. So your listening experience remains yours.

For those addicted to noise cancellation headphone technology, like the author, Aurvana In-Ear2 are a pleasant alternative. No it is not 100% cancellation (nor does it claim to be), but it is a nice break from the bulk and discomfort of over ear products, while maintaining high quality sound. Aesthetically they are housed in an easy-to-carry case. Cable management offers good protection from the “elements” of backpacks, purses and the like. The form factor of the bud paired with various eartip sizes enables them to meet the shape of any ear. Other accessories include a cleaning tool and airplane adaptor.

Aurvana In-Ear2 is available at $99.99 from Amazon

I’ve owned a number of Creative products over the years, but I’ve finally given up on them. Creative Labs products, in my experience, are characterized by a brilliant idea that fits a niche in the market, the hardware of the device is very well designed, software is user friendly, but the electronics always fall far short of the promise. Typical of Creative, for instance, is their inability to design a WiFi interface that can penetrate a single layer of drywall, or a wireless controller that works more than 5 feet away from the device. I’ve also found various other problems with their line of audio interface devices. I recognize that the earphones being reviewed will not experience wireless issues, but I’ve never bought a Creative product that lived up to the advertised specifications.
