Creative Aurvana Air earphones now official



 reddot design award winner 2009Creative Aurvana Air earphones now official

 

Creative has just revealed to the world their ‘acoustic masterpiece’. As suspected, it’s the latest addition to their Aurvana range of high performance earphones and headsets. The Aurvana Air was first seen at CES 2009 and nothing apart from that. Winner of the Red Dot Product Design Award at CES 2009, things are starting to look positive already.

To these premium earphones, Creative adds another 2 terms to their nomenclature: EaseFit™ and Flexnium™. A little more on that below. First a basic overview of Air’s features according to Creative:products_air_technology_1

  • Ergonomically designed, the EaseFit™ ear-hook offers you extreme comfort for prolonged use. Fitting optimally on most ears, it attaches securely to the listener, making the Aurvana Air ideal for active pursuits.
  • The lightweight Flexnium™ ear-hooks incorporate Nickel-Titanium material to offer a flexible design while the inert coating makes it safe for sensitive ears. The ear-hooks are able to withstand corrosion from perspiration and grime as well. The ear-hook is made up of shape memory alloy that retains it’s elasticity. 
  • Powered by Neodymium magnet drivers with ultra-slim high performance diaphragms and tuned Bass-Slots, the Aurvana Air is one true acoustic powerhouse.
  • Superior thermoplastic elastomer coated cabling resists tangling and significantly reduces contact noise. The
  • cable-fit slider also lets you manage the excess cabling well. 

  • Enjoy portable convenience with the compact leather pouch which includes a cable management holder.

Now for something that really matters, audio specifications:

  • 15.5mm Neodymium magnet with high performance diaphragm drivers
  • Frequency response of 20Hz ~ 20kHz
  • Impedance of 32 ohms
  • Sensitivity of 102dB/mW at 1kHz
  • Cable length of 1.2m Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) wiresCreative Aurvana Air Earphones

While Creative’s labelling the Air with all sorts of fancy adjectives around it, we hope it really lives up to the hype. Based on current audio specifications we can have a general idea about its performance. While frequency response doesn’t really do the trick, its at a medium range level of 20 Hz ~20kHz. This is quite fair and not really very impressive on paper. The impedance also lies in a fairly mid range level of 32 Ohms. Since this isn’t an in-ear earphone, its forgiven. Quite frankly we will have to try them on ourselves to find that out.

Singapore: S$299.00
