Product Description

AURIA earphones deliver unrivaled comfort and a confident fit. You can now enjoy music for hours at a time without discomfort. PROVOKE earphones even perform well when you run, bike, work out in a gym, snowboard or just walk in the park. How did we do this? To start with, we developed the XFit system , designed to solve the number one complaint about earphones – that they fall out too easily. XFit is based on the use of ultra-soft, ergonomically-shaped LOBES that gently conform to the flexible portions of outer ears – the tragus and anti-tragus. ECO rings are part of the XFit system and are designed to individualize the fit by positioning the speakers properly to maximum comfort and audio performance. We also custom-engineered the speakers to produce premium-level audio with great detail. Throughout the design process, we researched and tested every aspect of the earphones to make sure that they perform in a wide variety of sporting and active-lifestyle activities such as running, skiing, hiking or merely commuting to a school or job. AURIA earphones are designed to be in step with the latest trends. Everyone can select Personalizers that reflect their personal style, team affiliation, college or fashion. Personalizers simply swap out in seconds, changing the exterior look of your earphones.

I bought a pair of these headphones at a health and fitness expo for a marathon that I ran. The sound quality is only ok. If there is a lot of background noise then you will have to turn the volume up quite a bit in order to hear. The fit is ok, not great but not too bad. They do not slip out when running like many ear buds do which is a plus. So why give them just 1 star? After just over 15 days (about 12 uses) they broke. The glue holding one of the buds together failed and the ear bud fell apart. Thus, they are now useless.

I do not like these earphones. They do not fit well and they require you to put thoses ear hold things on, which do not stay on the earphones,they constantly come off. Which means if you are not careful taking them out of your ears you will lose them.

You might as well buy the earphones with the fabric ear holds they pose the same problem, but with less cost.

Also, the sound quality is not that great either.

After 3 runs with these headphones I can't find one good point. I have the high-end spec. model, no bass, sweat seal does not work at all, poor fit. No improvement from basic ear buds. Don't believe the marketing hype and save your money

I bought these at an expo for a marathon and used them for a year.

First the pros:
- As good sound quality as you can expect from ear buds
- Fit is good and they usually do not fall out (See below)
- You can hear what is going on around you while wearing these

Now the cons:
- The rubber fitting rings fall off, usually at the worst possible time (Think mile 20 of a full.)
- They have an amplifier which is needed for them to work as advertised, but is a big drain on your battery.
- Poor manufacturing ruined a good concept.

These headphones are designed to fit in your ears but outside the ear canal. This means that you can hear your music but also the things around you such as approaching cars. If you are not blasting the music you can actually have a conversation while using these. The controls consist of a volume slider and a button that allows you to answer calls or advance to the next song. In all a good concept, but it fails because of poor execution.

I should have known when the guy told me not to put run the wire inside my shirt. The pod that has the controls is not hermetically sealed and there is no potting on the circuit board. Like most people, I sweat when I run, I sometimes run in the rain. and occasionally I pour water on my head. It runs down the wires and into the control pod. The button stopped working before the Marathon was over. The volume slider shortly thereafter.

That was not the worst. The first time I used them they kept cutting out. I spent miles 1 - 9 messing with them, trying to make them work properly (I'm OCD that way.) Eventually they began to work and I finished the race.

I have an iPhone 3GS (I know...) and I use the Nike+ GPS App.
