Creative expands the Aurvana Family with the Aurvana Air

After weeks of teasing, Creative finally made the long over-dued Aurvana Air offical! Not only is this the first ear-hook design earphones from the Aurvana series but also the first to win a Red Dot Design Award. To me, the main selling point of the Air would be its design. I think a lot of effort have been put into the Air to make it very flexible so that is it comfortable enough to wear over a long period of time.

Below are the features of the Aurvana Air:

-Intuitive EaseFit™ ear-hook design is easy to wear and provides the listener with maximum level of comfort even with long hours of extended wear.
-Advanced Flexnium™ ear-hooks with Nickel-Titanium alloy (Shape Memory Metal) retain their shapes when flexed or bent; while an inert coating makes them safe on Nickel-sensitive ears
-Powerful Neodymium magnet drivers with ultra-slim high performance diaphragms which reduce distortion and deliver excellent sonic performance
-Acoustically-tuned Bass-Slots deliver a tight and extended bass
-Clear audio performance from high-purity Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) cable and gold-plated plug
-Superior thermoplastic elastomer-coated cable that is designed to resist tangling and to significantly reduce contact noise.
-A compact leather pouch with cable management holder for easy storage

The Aurvana Air retails at SGD$299.99 in Singapore, USD$199.99 in the US and £169.99 in the UK.
