Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"I like the braided fabric cable that reduce nicely the sound produced by the friction of the cable."
_
"The 'phones are quite comfortable, with adjustable silicone earphones and a high-quality braided cable that twists and tangles much less than most of the other models I've tried at similar price-points."
_
"From the slick in-ear piece to the stylish brown cord, they're amazing."
_
"The cable is a lovely light copper color and I love the easy buttons..one to press to stop start and the other slider for the volume were easy to get to and worked well."

Fit

Fit:
"At first I thought I wouldn't be able to use them because they didn't fit properly and were uncomfortable."
_
"Notes:- Very hard to open package- Fit very well into my ear and feels great."
_
"Also, they seems to be a pretty stable fit since they never popped out of my ear, even with a few run to catch the bus!"
_
"They fit very nicely into my ears tooalmost like they were molded to fit."
_
"The fit is nice, the different size plugs is definitely a plus but the sound quality just isn't there."
_
"I started digging deeper in the box and found all sorts of things for a better fit and comfort."

Music

Music:
"For acoustic music these earphones are terrible."
_
"Not just bassy hip-hop music suffers, either (though it sounds horrible on these IEMs); I found the drums and bass disappearing into near-inaudibility in my jazz tracks, and the lower portions of classical orchestral recordings fading badly."
_
"Acoustic music is what I mostly listen to, and it is not well served by these headphones."
_
"I want my music crisp and clear, not booming - and these are perfect."
_
"Now for the claim that they have noise insulation of 98%, well, yes they have great noise insulation, better then any other earphones I tried, but I can still ear some sound that seems to be more then 2% (I would say maybe 10% to 15%).I consider myself as a music lover and I am very satisfied with these, I think that if I ever change them, it will be because they will be lost or broken! "
_
"I use my earphones a lot for both music (rock, electronic, and jazz, mostly) as well as for audiobooks while traveling and commuting, and I think I'm a relatively demanding user with no pretensions of being a true audiophile."
_
"The music sounds just fine to me--a good deal of clear treble tones and just enough rich bass tones to satisfy my taste."
_
"These headphones sound good but I wasn't blown away by their performance for music like I thought I would be especially when you consider the retail price."
_
"Bass is not lacking, and, with most instrumental music and vocals in the mid-range, these headphones produced a nice balanced sound, with good separation and stereo imaging."

"
_
"Keep in mind that these are not noise-cancelling, and sell at a price well below the high end noise cancelling offerings from Bose and others."
_
"These Creative earphones offer a satisfying combination of noise isolation and high quality audio."
_
"I don't want to hear ask the noise and they do a good job of Canson background noise."

Price

Price:
"After spending a lot of money on these earphones I expected a lot, and I was very disappointed."
_
"For the price, I did have high expectations and I was terribly disappointed."
_
"At the current price, they aren't a good value, but I expect that eventually they will be selling well below MSRP."
_
"The Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus is just not an impressive headphone at this high a price (or really any price, considering how many good lower-end IEMs there now are from companies like MEE, Shure, and Klipsch), and I can't recommend it."
_
"The Creative Labs Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus in-ear headphones are not at all good enough to be especially worth considering at their price."
_
"Keep in mind that these are not noise-cancelling, and sell at a price well below the high end noise cancelling offerings from Bose and others."
_
"MSRP is $149 Creative has it for $99 so that's a better price."
_
"Pretty high price for this level of phones."
_
"Acoustic music and vocals will sound very good on the In-Ear3 especially at this price point."
_
"Overall, the sound quality is a very reasonable value at this price point IF your taste in music runs to folk, jazz or classical."

Quality

Quality:
"The sound quality wasn't very good."
_
"But they are bulky and if you want something convenient and small (and if you want some sound isolation while on a plane), you're going to have to make compromises in audio quality."
_
"The sound quality, though, is just mediocre, anemic, and thin."
_
"If I lower it just a bit, I don't notice a sound quality loss, but to be sure to always get the best sound available, I leave it at max level."
_
"Overall these are a solid performer and audiophiles will appreciate the audio quality."
_
"All in all, these are a very nice pair of quality earphones, however, given that the price is still high, I would probably wait a couple of months before buying (unless you absolutely have to have them right away)."
_
"Pros good bass range great high range built well with braided chord good noise canceling improves quality of phone callsCons have to push pretty deep into ear to get quality sound have to wear around top of ear which can cause soreness slip out of ear when active head movement which results in loss of bass and noise cancellationOverall I find these earphones good for phone usage and the casual gym person that doesn't engage in a lot of head movement like cardio kickboxing or running jogging."

Sound

Sound:
"Also since I am used to not be able to control my sound from the remote, this is really not a big deal for me to not use it."
_
"The sound control seemed at first a good idea since it's not software related (I had a few problem with sound control of earphones on Android), but it is not..."
_
"I usually lean toward in-ear phones made by companies like Etymotic, Ultimate Ears, etc., but I'd never tried ones made by Creative before (a brand name that still overwhelmingly reminds me of PC sound cards from the 1990s, and nothing else).Anyway, I was wrong about all that."
_
"The sound quality wasn't very good."
_
"But they are bulky and if you want something convenient and small (and if you want some sound isolation while on a plane), you're going to have to make compromises in audio quality."
_
"The sound quality, though, is just mediocre, anemic, and thin."
_
"I like the braided fabric cable that reduce nicely the sound produced by the friction of the cable."
_
"If I lower it just a bit, I don't notice a sound quality loss, but to be sure to always get the best sound available, I leave it at max level."
_
"The sound control seemed at first a good idea since it's not software related (I had a few problem with sound control of earphones on Android), but it is not..."
_
"They produce a very nice sound, from the highs to the bass, that is very well balanced, I don't know if this is a side effect, but I have a tendency to put my music louder then with my precedent earphones (Klipsch S4A)."
_
"Noise isolation means that the ear buds do a fairly good job of keeping outside sound from getting into your ears."

Volume

Volume:
"The only negative on that front is that the inline volume slider isn't sonically neutral: when you drop the volume with the slider, the sound gets noticeably tinny, it drops bass, and has overall poorer quality than using the regular volume control on my phone."
_
"These can be quite loud, so I'd be careful to keep them on the low volume side to avoid hearing damage."
_
"I tested the microphone and it was lower in volume than the phone's built-in mic (possibly there is a hidden setting I needed to adjust), but was clear."
_
"The cable is a lovely light copper color and I love the easy buttons..one to press to stop start and the other slider for the volume were easy to get to and worked well."
_
"Phones sound best with this volume on max."
_
"They get loud and the sound and bass are great, IF you keep the slider volume on the cord at the max."
_
"They sound best when the inline volume is on max."
_
"We love that the Mike is separate from the volume control, This is easy to use fits well."
