Crafted with precision, the Creative Aurvana Air’s EaseFitTM ear-hook design provides listeners with superior comfort over long hours of extended use.

A soft rubber tip completes the design for a comfortable fit. This precise design is well complemented by the Creative Aurvana Air’s luxurious champagne-gold finishing and polished metal accent that lends an air of timeless sophistication.
Powerful Neodymium magnet with ultra-thin drivers and acoustically-tuned Bass-Slots deliver a visceral acoustic performance. Combine this with the pristine delivery from high-purity OFC cabling and gold-plated plug makes the Creative Aurvana Air ideal for the digital entertainment needs for all users while they engage in active pursuits. The Creative Aurvana Air incorporates an intuitive cable-fit slider to manage excess cable and includes two pairs of foam ear cushions and an elegant leather pouch for storage and travel.
