[Amazon]Creative Aurvana Live! $60 SHIPPED

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Great deal on a great set of headphones. I used to have them and I'd rate these 10/10 for value. They sound really good for $60.


These are OEM of Denon D1001 ($85+)


For those of you that will ask, these are better than the RX700 and RX900. I'd say they're on par with the M50(however both have different sound signature).

You can't really compare the HD 555 to the CAL! because one is open cans and the other is closed, respectively.

They have great bass(extend down all the way to ~22Hz), smooth mids(a bit recessed but barely noticeable), and great treble(not rolled off and not sibilant).

these are awesome. just the right amount of bass.
I found them very comfy and the leather-ish pads are really soft.
one of my favorite headphones

I can't stand the pair I have. They were comfy at first, but then they kill my ears after 40 mins or so after they were broken in. The sound isn't good enough to put up with the discomfort.

One of the Amazon reviewers (on the denon version) said that other people can hear what you are listening to pretty easily even on medium volume. Do you agree?

I'd guess that these cans are so small for closed cans that they sit on your actual ear. And since they push on your ears they don't make a proper seal. They squish my ears and it hurts after a while. I stopped using these and went back to my cheesy Koss KCS75 which have better balance lol, till I fixed my MDR-F1 (brilliant soundstage). I recently switched to a set of A700s, and they fit great for closed cans.

No, if you don't have hair in the way or an EXTREMELY large ear, the earpads seals nicely around your ear and other's can't hear what you're listening to.

These cans do not sit on your ears unless, like I said, you have extremely large ears.

If they're anything like their bigger brothers (the D2000, D5000...), then they're full circumaural headphones that are supposed to encompass the whole ear. However, even so, they still leak quite a bit of sound. Almost comparable to open headphones but with bass associated normally with closed cans.

I have the D2000 and love the low frequencies, but they do leak a bit sound even with a good seal. I don't know how the D1001/CAL! compare, but I'm sure it's a similar experience.

Tempted to get a set for backup, not too many retailers carry these anymore...

They aren't actually circumaural. They sit on the rear of your ears, unfortunately. And I've also had the D2000s as well. They do have a similar sound, but of course the bigger brothers are much better (at a price).

So tempting.
