Was just browsing the Creative website and it looks like they've updated all their headphones.

Has anyone had the chance to try them out?
There was a thread (Somewhere) about these awhile ago. I don't think they are out yet? But there is a seller on ebay from China who is importing them right now for $185, A little too steep for taking one for the team. I know list price is around $135 or so, might be best to wait for the official roll out, at least price wise.

Hi !
I got to try the CAL!2 on the CEE show in Singapore yesterday. Similar sound signature to the Aurvana Live! 1, slightly improved clarity, bass and soundstage. The new ones are better built and larger, they will cover your ears fully and they are super comfy to wear. If you loved the No1 get the No2 if the improved size does'nt bother you.
 
I have written a first impression review on German Hifi Forum: http://www.hifi-forum.de/index.php?action=browseT&back=1&sort=lpost&forum_id=211&thread=559
 
I am not having the time right now to translate it fully into English but you might want to try Google translator.
 
I will try to answer questions if there are any.

Great! <3 But they deserve all that difference of price or not?
I mean, between 50 euros and 130 there is a great difference : I could buy with just adding 20€ 3 CAL!1 with that amount. What do you think?

Actually I would wait until they get listed on Amazon worldwide. The price might be much lower than on the Creative website. For the Live! 1 the prices always stayed at the RRP on their website while they cost 50 Eur on Amazon.de and ~70 USD on Amazon US.
 
The CAL!2 cost ~100 Eur in Singapore now and even on the Consumer Electronics Exhibition (ends tomorrow) they do not sell them cheaper than on their website.
 
I am a fan of CAL!1 but I did not buy the new model right away.
 
Also, at 130 Eur there are quite a few alternatives.

Hey guys, this is my first post here, kindof stumbled across this thread when I was searching for the creative aurvana live 2 reviews.
 
I have already ordered a red one from their online store and should be receiving it next week! I don't see any other online retailers selling it for a cheaper price but creative is offering a 15% off promo code for their facebook customers so I guess that's the best deal out there yet for this product.
 
I will give you guys my review of the product once i receive it! Super excited and hope it lives up to expectation! Really don't want to send it back!

Hey Lorspeaker, thanks for your hospitality! Yes i did had a chance to try it at the recently concluded electronics CEE show that zachgraz went to. I played with it for about 15-20 minutes (yeah i know, the people behind me weren't that happy!) and it sounded good and really comfortable. I did had to blast my volume to the loudest as the convention hall was crazily loud but from my short time with it, it felt like a really good buy. But then again, i wouldn't have gotten it so soon if it wasn't for the discount. It's crazy how Creative hasn't gotten any reviews out on this product (good products, poor marketing as usual).
