Creative Aurvana X-Fi Headphones

 

Creative puts an X-Fi spin on noise cancelling headphones.

I hate flying, I really do, but these headphones really did make the long flight home from Las Vegas considerably more bearable. The noise cancelling is impressive, while the X-Fi CMSS-3D works well when watching movies, helping to create an immersive...

Creative Aurvana X-Fi Headphones review

 

Noise cancelling cans upmix MP3s on the fly

X-Fi makes music and movies sound awesome ; CMSS-3D adds a touch of class ; Noise cancelling works well

The steep price ; Sound leakage

If the price tag doesn't scare you off, these headphones will surprise you with how clear and crisp they sound, even in noisy environments

Creative Aurvana X-Fi headphones review

 

Noise-cancelling headphones prevent the roar of jet engines (or PC fans) from marring your listening experience.

The Creative Aurvana X-Fi is not inexpensive. But the nearest competitor, Bose's QuietComfort 2, costs just as much and offers half the features. Which would you rather have - headphones that merely block noise, or headphones that block noise and...

Creative Aurvana X-Fi

 

They're ugly and heavy, but the Creative Aurvana X-Fis sound like they've been sent by Buddha himself.

Exceptional audio quality. Funky X-Fi technology

They're heavy and not exactly eye-pleasing

Creative Aurvana X-Fi Headphones

 

So, with X-Fi and noise cancelling built into these Creative headphones, are they really as good as they promise to be? The answer, in a word, is yes - flat, lifeless MP3 files tend to sound much better than they actually are

Huge stock-clocked performance, Insane overclocking headroom, Oodles of bandwidth, Lots of headroom for the future, Fantastic Overdrive tuning application, 'Native' quad-core design delivers excellent scaling, Underlying Spider platform packs a lot of...

Not actually available until early 2008, As with all Extreme editions, it's ludicrously expensive, Can't make up for Phenom's weaknesses, Does anyone really want four GPUs in a single PC?, Launch frequencies not high enough to compete with Intel,...

Listen in X-Fi anywhere, at a price

 

WHILE WAITING FOR X-Fi PCI-Express cards to appear Creative has used the time to focus on high-end audio accessories

About as good as it gets from headphones ; The Bad Size. It's not the most portable of accessories ; The Ugly Price - what else
