Introduction

Unlike the vast majority of entry-level headphones, the Creative Aurvana In-Ear3s offer a formidable combination of performance and value. Sure, they don't deliver the super-low distortion that audiophiles prize, but overall they're a fantastic first set of in-ears.

The In-Ear3s retail for $149 (MSRP). With a fit akin to earplugs, these headphones can accurately portray a wide range of sounds, and since they fit in-ear, like ear plugs, sound stays where it should. Overall, these are a good buy.
