PRISTINE AUDIO WITH INNOVATIVE LSR TECHNOLOGY

We have brought the audio performance of analog in-ears up a notch with the introduction of all-new innovative Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) technology in Creative Aurvana Trio LS, which drastically reduces distortions that commonly exist in traditional drivers. The LSR technique ensures more uniform and consistent vibrations throughout the entire driver, which translates to overall improved sound reproductions as well as cleaner, pristine audio with minimal distortions even at higher volumes. Further refined by our in-house acoustic experts, Aurvana Trio LS offers you a premium listening experience at a bargain.

Design

NO MORE DISTURBANCES

Say hello to our fresh, new look with redesigned sawtooth sheath cable! Creative Aurvana Trio LS has been given a refined facelift to not only complement the boost in performance, but also to reduce irksome microphonic noises caused by friction when we move about, and when the cable involuntarily comes into contact with other surfaces.

In addition, the headphones also come with our exclusive in-ear noise isolation design, which forms an optimal seal when worn to block out unwanted environmental noises. Now, you can enjoy undisturbed audio entertainment and stay focused without missing a beat to your music! We have also included extra ear tips so you can find the ideal fit to ensure a perfect seal.

Personally, I like the X3 a lot and in my opinion Creative Labs put together an excellent product and implemented it with precision. I say this because there were moments were I listened to specific sections of a movie long after what I needed to hear had past. The sound experience kept me engaged even when I was suppose to move on to something else. This is what good audio is about. Capturing and captivating you and not letting you go which is something you can not physically measure.
