REVIEWS

  • Luxury Insider

    "A demonstration of Creative's X-Fi Crystalizer and X-Fi Expand technology (it restores the highs and lows of music typically lost during compression to the MP3 format) at the Screening Room in Singapore was suitably impressive as the difference in the quality of sound was immediately apparent."

    "AS PMP's go, this is by far one of the most feature-rich players around now, with a wider array of supported formats and greater functionality than the iconic iPod. 16GB and 32GB versions of the ZEN X-Fi are also on the cards with support for Wi-Fi connectivity on the cards in the latter. All in all this is one Cool PMP that towers above the rest, notwithstanding its diminutive size."

    "Exceptional sound quality is the ZEN X-Fi's speciality, and thanks to the premium earbuds included in the sales package, you don't need to invest in new ones to appreciate it. Audiophiles have lots of settings to tinker with, including eight equaliser presets, 5-band custom EQ and the X-Fi Crystalizer and Expand options.

    The X-Fi also holds its own when it comes to video playback. The screen is a bit small at 2.5 inches, but it's crisp and bright, with an extensive palette of up to 16 million colours.
