2 out of 5 eggsNot as good as their entry level earphones

Pros: Great noise isolation
Comes with a carrying kit
6 pairs of different sized replacement rubber fittings

Cons: Sound not as good as their entry level EP 630.
Bass is non existent.

Other Thoughts: Just purchase the EP 630, no earphones come close to that in regards to sound quality and price. Just simply not happy with this purchase. If I knew sound would degrade over this supposedly "upgrade", I would've never purchased it.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb Headphones

Pros: Excellent audio quality, you can FEEL the bass from music.
Comfortable, you don't even feel them after a while.

Sound output is much, much higher than other headphones, my Zen Vision M with other headphones needs to be at 18-20 volume to even hear the music decently, with these it can be on 8 and be heard perfectly, while 15 is almost too loud.

I have no used any other "in-ear" headphones of this quality, the rest are garbage compared to these.

Creative Labs has been in the sound business since the 90s, their products are sound and they know what they are doing, and unlike Bose... are not 400 dollars overpriced.

Cons: Cord isn't quite long enough for my liking, but it's just about right.

Cord again, could be made with thicker rubber or poly coating, as if you don't take care of these they can get pinched. I had one get ruined by my car's seat belt when it locked down. They make mice cables like this, no reason why headphones cant.

Price, for MOST people, 99, or even 70 is too much for a pair of headphones. Trust me, it's worth it, IF you want the audio quality.

Other Thoughts: The carry case is somewhat cumbersome to constantly wrap them up and take out, I tend to not ever use it except to prop my laptop up with. Headphones are either around my neck, or coiled up in my shirt pocket.

There ARE better headphones, IF you want those over-the-head kind with massive cups that go over your ears, but I honestly can't stand those.

Did not buy from Newegg, bought directly from Creative each time, had I knew Newegg had them for much less I would have bought them here.

5 out of 5 eggsAWE

Pros: Excellent ear buds. Fits and seals nicely into my ears. Far better than the buds that came with my IPOD. I can now put them in, turn down the volume and hear just fine.

Cons: Seals so well that outside sounds are muffled and hard to make out. This is somewhat of a hindrance at work (where I use them the most) because it is difficult to hear someone when they are talking to me even with the volume turned down.

Other Thoughts: Side Note: NO trouble hearing traffic noises (sirens, horns ect.) when walking or running with them in, unless you crank the volume all the way up.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat sound isolation

Pros: These ear buds have worked reliably for my wife and I (I bought her a pair, too) for years. I purchased both on Newegg. The sound is great and they come with 3 optional sizes for the ear pieces.

Cons: The cord for these ear buds would be better if it was mesh and longer. 4' is very little to work with.

4 out of 5 eggsAny diamond needs to be cut

Pros: The sound quality is exceptional, but requires some tweaking. It is very clear and distortion free, and has excellent precision. The problem is (contrary to what others have said) the highs are noticeably rolled off, leaving you with excellent but lonely mids (no bass either). However, if an equalizer is available, jack up the bass from the bottom to about 150hz, and boost the highs above 7khz, and you have yourself a much more dynamic pair of earphones. I would recommend splitting the boost in two, by dropping the preamp when you boost the lows and highs. You lose a little bit of the clarity that the mids had before that, but it is worth it. When you do this with most headphones, you end up with unbelievable distortion, but these phones handle it well.

Everything else is mediocre: the appearance is bland if "professional", the accessories are scant, and the packaging is alright.

Cons: As mentioned above, the out-of-the-box response arc heavily favors the mids. This can be corrected, but if your player doesn't have an equalizer, or if you have a poor amp, you won't like them at all.

Other than that, all the problems are ones common to canal-phones.

Other Thoughts: I think I'm gonna eat pizza tonight....or make spaghetti...Do I still have any hamburger helper left?

2 out of 5 eggsa bad buy

Pros: good isolation and is small. looks great

Cons: Where do I begin, Creative is a known for their audio expertise and I love their product: X-fi sound cards, Ep-630, Zen vision: M and even the HN-700. The aurvana just sound bad period. The bass some what accurate, but has very little impact, the mid is very recessive, vocal will be covered up by other sound. The high also sounds thin and tiny. I guess Creative doesn't know much about armature drives. They are much better off making dynamic driver instead. Very big failure by creative

Other Thoughts: I am an audiophile who owned tons of earphones and by far those are the worst sounding earphones above $50. If it is priced at $20-30, it would some what consider an just OK buy.

2 out of 5 eggsFor a top of the line model - scores low

Pros: On sale these are attractive enough to entice, company has a wonderful reputation for quality products, lots of "stuff" included.

Cons: The box is a bear to open and forget about the inner plastic packaging, take some Tylenol first. Now sit back and get ready to go "Why are these so --- duh----sounding? Facts and ears don't lie -- Their model 630 is a GREAT value and overall a MUCH better sounding earphone. Bass? What bass? If you drive them with a dedicated headphone amp they come to life but only slightly under levels too high to tolerate for long listening periods. They need to go back to the drawing-board if this is their "Flagship" of in-ear phones. Very disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Almost any of the other in-ear models that Creative offers will give you a more satisfying listening experience. All the fluff in the package of the Aurvana doesn't make up for it's woeful lack of performance expected at this price level.

5 out of 5 eggsNot as I feared

Pros: Comes with a lot of stuff: extra ear plugs, cleaning brush, and a very, very sturdy carrying case. For acoustic or music with a LOT of different sounds/effects, it sounds ridiculously well.

Cons: Its bass is indeed quite weak compares to others, as others mentioned. Heck, My EP 635 (630 with neckstrap) has way better bass than it. The price could be cheaper too. I also wish the wires could be more sturdy; they are a bit too thin for my taste.

Other Thoughts: I guess, to decide if this is for you, there are 3 questions: (1) Do you love overall sound at near 100% presentation over how good the bass is? (2) Can you tell the difference between lossless and compressed music, and also between CBR 320kbps (or equivalent VBR) and weak CBR 128kbps music? (3) Do you have musics that have enough level of sounds and ambient that can exploit this earphones very, very well? If you answer all 3 questions "yes", this is for you. I have problems with decent earphones' heavy bass, it actually hurts my ears, so its weak bass actually fits me well. In regard of how good this earphone set is at delivering near perfect audio: I have a song that reaches very high pitches, and when I tried this earphone set with that song, I became truly aware of it, as the song's high pitches were completely not hindered by the earphones, and for the first time ever my ears immediately hurt because of the high pitches through a earphone or speaker set!
