Creative Aurvana 2 In-Ear Headphones
Refined Acoustic Tuning for Clear, Detailed Audio

Whatever your favorite genre of music is, Creative's Aurvana 2 In-Ear Headphones deliver a high-quality, realistic listening experience. Featuring a design that incorporates precise, balanced armature drivers with an acoustic grille, these headphones allow for a smoother, warmer, and more detailed sound profile that includes deep, rich bass.

Creative Aurvana Cable-Fit Slider
Cable-fit slider for easy cable adjustments.

In addition, the Aurvana 2's premium-quality, oxygen-free copper cable and gold-plated plug team up to reduce distortion and deliver clear transmission from your favorite player to the headphones. For increased flexibility, these headphones also feature a cable-fit slider, which allows you to adjust the length of the cable. This doesn't just keep the cable out of your way and prevent tangles; it also reduces the unnecessary disturbance that can be caused by a long cord brushing against your clothes.

Ergonomic Earbuds for Comfort and Noise Isolation

Creative's trademarked AuraSeal in-ear design offers superb noise isolation, blocking out up to 95 percent of ambient noise. This means that you can listen to your favorite tracks without interference from engine noise, nearby conversations, or other environmental distractions.

The Aurvana 2's earbuds are ergonomically contoured to fit comfortably in your ears. Plus, soft hypoallergenic ear tips, in three different sizes, are included with the headphones, so you can select whichever fit is right for your ears. This precise fit keeps the earbuds in place while you're working out or running to catch the bus, and it also works to minimize the type of sound leakage that can mar bass reproduction.

I have always heard of good things about the Creative Aurvana line. I wanted to get the Aurvana 3 In-Ear but read that the Aurvana 2 In-Ear has more treble while the A3 has more bass. Also reviewers said the A2 has thicker cable. Since I'm a fan of clean, clear sound signatures more than boomy ones, my interest piqued for the A2.

At the moment of this writing, they are on sale for 54.99, which I think is an excellent value. I am very glad that I snatched these up at this price. Compared to budget IEMs at this price range, such as offerings from Meelectronics and Brainwavz, the Aurvana 2 In-Ear not only has better sound quality, but more importantly, much better build-quality and design.


The packaging is simple and compact, yet feels very high quality. One gripe I have about the packaging is that it is near impossible to unbox without breaking the box one way or another. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to IEM unboxing. I always try to preserve the box as near brand new unopened condition as possible. Regrettably, you either have to tear up the top two flaps which are glued together, or the bottom four flaps that are very very tightly folded into each other that you have to break one side to open it up.


You get a very nice hard shell carrying case. It's quite unique and innovative as well, as there is no zipper, but rather a velcro strap that holds the case closed. The case only has compartment for the earphones and cable winder. I wish there was a compartment/pocket for an additional accessory, like the airplane adapter or a spare pair of ear tips.

There is an airline adapter, a earpiece cleaner, and various booklets, including a Napster thing. Nothing much to say here.

The sound quality is incredible. Some people say it doesn't have enough bass and I compared to another $20 pair and realized most other headphones actually have too much bass. This has a great balance that allow you to hear all of the instruments and clarity of voice without being overhsadowed by booming bass. when I listen to Hip Hop I will just use my other headphones, but when I listen to other forms of music these are 1st Rate.
The construction is also 1st rate. These easily outperform headphones 3x their cost. I would highly recommend unless your primarily a hip hop listener, then I wouldn't spend the money. These are especially great for accoustic instruments such as piano, but they really shine with vocals. Well worth the money.

I own several headphones which I use for different activities. For instance when I'm working out or engaging in outdoor activities such as biking or hiking I will use a cheaper headphone due to the sweat and wire stretching that occurs, but on business trips or at the office I'll use the more expensive headphone. I own the Creative EP-630 (died after a year of abuse), the Creative EP-830 (sounds nearly identical to the 630 but has a punchier clear bass), the Klipsch Image S4 (died after 6 months abuse), Bose in ear (overrated), and the Creative Aurvana Live(makes your ears hot). I decided to try the new Creative Aurvana In-Ear 2 since I was very satisfied with Creative thus far. After listening to the 830 for several months I have become highly accustomed to it's sound quality so upon listening to the Aurvana I was very disappointed considering I paid only $15 for the 830 while I paid $99 for the Aurvana. But after listening to it for a while, testing several types of music from hip hop, techno, pop, rock, and classical I am able to better appreciate its quality. The 830 is much louder for some reason where I had to lower the volume 5 levels or raise it when listening to the Aurvana. The Aurvana has a frequency response of 15Hz-16kHz compared to the 830 of 6Hz-23kHz so it is expected that the 830 has a much stronger bass, but that doesn't diminish the fact that the Aurvana's bass is also quite good. It's just not as good as the 830 which has the best bass of any headphone under $300. You'll need to move to the Shure SE530 to get similar bass quality and depart with half a grand in the process. With that said the Aurvana has superior mid and high levels compared to the 830 which sounded somewhat muddied.Read more ›

I bought these because the original headphones that came with my Creative Zen suddenly disappeared. Let me say that these are superior quality headphones. They practically cancel all outside noise without the use of excessive volume. They stay in well, and the carrying case is a life-saver.
I only wish that they had better bass. My original headphones (also earbuds) had better bass than these, and which is what I miss the most. All other ranges are crisp, clear, everything. But bass is the lifeblood of music, and these headphones sell it just a little bit short...but not enough to take a star away.

These are simply amazing for the money. I think you're getting the meelec A161 sound, minus the 161's lousy wires. I'm a big meelec fan, but these are at least at the level of the Shure SE310 a few years back, for the current low price here, you would have paid 250 dollars for, not long ago. The bass is great, just not exaggerated. Upper treble is a bit rolled off, and mids are good, full, but not overly in your face. The small form factor makes them great for sleeping in as well.

I really want it to be clear how much of a step up these are from the 20-30 range phones, for the crazy price here at Amazon right now, even the audiophile on a tight budget can get what I'd call between entry fi and mid fi sound. The yamahevEPH 100 is slightly better, but 3 times the price. The Yamaha has a bit better impact and depth on the bass, the rest is more preference than better or worse. At this moment I can't think of a better value. Getting better thn the Yamaha EPH100 is leading you into the 250+ range of products. I hope this helps
