The Creative Labs Aurvana Ace 2 earbuds offer very good overall sound quality and come with a midrange price tag. They are closed, stemmed earbuds with AptX Lossless for lossless audio and AptX Adaptive for low latency, suitable for both music listening and gaming. They have excellent comfort, very good build quality, and a versatile app equalizer for sound customization. For calls, the microphone is fair, which might not be ideal for frequent use in noisy environments. They are sweatproof and feature active noise cancelling, making them a good option for exercise and noisy settings. Their portability is enhanced by the medium-size earbud carry case, and they provide up to 5 hours of battery life on the earbuds themselves, with an additional 18 hours from the case that supports wireless charging. If you're looking for earbuds that perform well for a variety of uses and prioritize sound quality and comfort, these could be a good fit, though for extended use in calls or meetings, you may prefer options with a better microphone.

Ratings by Category

Gaming:
4.6
This score evaluates the product when used to play videogames. It takes into account wireless latency - the perceived delay between the action on screen and the sounds playing in your ears. The score also considers soundstage quality, whether they have a virtual surround feature, and overall comfort. Finally, the gaming score takes into account microphone quality for in-game voice chat. It’s important to note that the device paired with the earbuds heavily influences their performance in regards to latency or delay.

We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
