HD Voice represents the next generation of voice quality for telephony audio. It transmits a broader spectrum of the human voice; therefore conversation is more natural and is likened to speaking to the other party in the same room. It allows us to easily recognize callers, decipher similar sounding words or distinguish confusing sounds. To take advantage of HD Voice, both parties need to converse on HD Voice capable smartphones; and be connected to HD Voice compatible mobile networks. In hands-free communication with wireless headsets, these need to be HD Voice ready as well, such as Aurvana Platinum, Aurvana Gold and Hitz WP380. For more details on supported HD Voice service and smartphones refer to your local service provider.
The built-in microphone with ClearSpeech Engine actively suppresses environmental noise and digitally enhances voice clarity so that your conversations are loud and clear.

Music quality is okay - lacking in high end response which is aggravated further by Bluetooth. If you have an equalizer for your music source, they can be tailored to sound quite good. Battery life is good - lasts me most of the day in my office with continuous use. You can charge via USB simultaneously while using them. Controls are convenient and work as expected with both my laptop and phone for media and call control.
I wear them for 4-5 hours at a time and they remain pretty comfortable. They are an over-ear (vs smaller on-ear headphones) design which, in combination with the noise cancelling feature, does a decent job blocking background noises. They are big and bulky, but still pretty lightweight, considering their size. Overall, once I got the equalizer dialed in, I am pretty satisfied.
I wanted to add that these headphones are tuned horribly (way too may muddy bass, not enough top end). The drivers are actually good quality, but only after applying an EQ. But not every device has the ability to EQ. It would be nice if they were just tuned properly out of the box. I wanted to share my EQ settings, which I think brings the sound to a whole new level. When I turn off the EQ it makes me want to puke. Wireless convenience is great, but the fidelity does improve when wired.
The NFC/Bluetooth synced (paired) with no problem to my cellphone (Samsung 3), Android tablet, and my HP computer. The noise cancellation is equivalent to if not better than the Bose QC15. The Aurvana Gold was tested by sitting by my television set with the volume turned from medium to high (Sony Surround Sound 5.1) and the noise cancellation on the Aurvana Gold blocked it out very good and the volume on the headphone was not turned up high. I was really impressed. I love this noise cancelling feature because my wife looks at TV at night before falling asleep and I can block out the noise from the TV by listening to calming/relaxing music while I fall asleep.
The buttons on the right side of the headphones are easy to use. The phone calls are clearly received and heard by both parties. The headphone can also be connected to two devices simultaneously (phone and tablet, etc.). The Aurvana Gold provides voice indicators on the headset connectivity (on/off voice messages) as well as battery level status. The headset cuts off manually or automatically.
They are truly comfortable/great headphones - wireless or wired. I highly recommend them and they will be keepers for me.
The build quality of both is equally good, although the touches of leather on the headband and outer ear cups makes gives the Platinum a higher end look and feel.
Comfort was exceptional for both headphones. They both offer memory foam earpads that are very comfortable.
Sound quality was also exceptional for both headphones, I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the 2. I found them to sound better when using bluetooth vs. a wired connection with my PC or Droid DNA. I also bought a USB bluetooth adapter with apt-x for my PC. My Droid DNA has apt-x built in and the sound over bluetooth is awesome to me. I am no audiophile, I am like most average people, I listen to music mostly using Pandora or Slacker and I couldn't be more happy with the sound I get with these headphones.
I ultimately decided to keep the Gold over the Platinum simple because of the price, and my preference of the looks of the Gold over the Platinum. I can assure you that either of these will make you very happy if you are looking for a very good bluetooth headphone.
The only con is that the earcups are larger than other headphones I have, probably due to the electronics inside obviously. I don't think it is a con for me personally but I supposed some people may dislike the size.
I've seen the sound profile described as something along the lines of pleasantly neutral. I can assure you that there wasn't anything pleasant about the sound. I would describe the sound as totally flat. There're no crisp highs or pounding lows. It's just....flat. Honestly, my iPhone earbuds sound 10 times better than these do. And yes, they were properly burnt-in. I can't speak for the Platinum version since maybe the 50mm drivers will alleviate the sound issues, but these are junk.
