- TechHive


Imagine capturing the listening experience of a high-end multi-speaker system in a professional studio, and recreating the same expansive experience — with the same original depth, detail, realism, and immersiveness — in your headphones.

Each of us hears the world differently — our unique head and ear shapes affect how we perceive sound. Super X-Fi personalizes the headphone audio experience based on how you hear sound to give you the most optimized and realistic listening experience.

This is done by simply taking three photos of your face and ears with your phone.



Personalize your Super X-Fi profile through an advanced Head and Ear-Mapping process.


Immerse yourself in a holographic audio experience in the comfort of your own living room. Super X-Fi is capable of transforming movie audio into full-fledged, cinematic audio experience that comes from a high-end multi-speaker surround system.


Experience music on your headphones as if you're listening to the recording artist in a studio! You can enjoy Super X-Fi from any audio source from your PC, including desktop apps such as Spotify, YouTube, or even some local hi-res audio files.

Try out some old mono tracks from the golden age and you'll be amazed how Super X-Fi transforms the music into something magical.


Enjoy games with the full cinematic capabilities of Super X-Fi! It works whether you're on PS4, Nintendo Switch, or on PC. The soundstage of the game opens up, presenting you with a real-life holographic audio experience, as if you were actually transported into the game environment itself. Your games will never sound the same anymore!

Audio Quality


The Creative SXFI AIR C's built-in Super X-Fi technology rests on its foundation of audio performance. The Creative SXFI AIR C boasts 50mm Neodymium drivers that are specially tuned to deliver audio that is powerful while maintaining accuracy, an essential attribute for music and movie buffs.


The Creative SXFI AIR C features a detachable ClearComms microphone that allows you to communicate easily with teammates in-game or friends over Skype. The microphone is specially tuned to reproduce impressively natural vocals.


Comms will never be the same again! With Super X-Fi, experience the mind-bending holographic reality of your teammate being in the same room as you. And with the SXFI AIR C's ClearComms mic, your friends will hear you loud and clear.



As fabric is more breathable and dissipates heat better, the fabric and memory foam of the earcups provide a more comfortable experience. The earcups are also replaceable, so users can opt to switch them out for leatherette earcups (sold separately) if desired.


Optimized clamping force is essential when creating an incredible headset. The Creative SXFI AIR C has a clamping force that is perfectly balanced, making it loose enough to be comfortable but tight enough to stay on the listeners head.



Hear your audio in a new light! With 16 million different colors to choose from, the Creative SXFI AIR C with its customizable light ring can match any outfit you choose.

If it wasn’t for the long wire trailing out the bottom, I’d probably have forgotten I was wearing then. This headset finally makes headphones immersive.

Customer Reviews

W. Miller

I ordered this to replace my Sound Blaster EVO Wireless headphones. I am blown away by the audio experience. The best way I can explain the audio is going from a smartphone speaker to being in a movie theater. Sometimes I swear the sound is coming from my house and not the headphones, making me take them off and put them back on to know for sure. I was pleasantly surprised how well I can hear other people speaking to me in person when I have these on. Voice calls on Skype/Teams/Duo has been flawless and I'm constantly being complimented for being so clear on my calls. I installed the software, logged into my Creative account and it pulled the profiles I created with my Outlier Gold. At first I had trouble setting the lighting (it kept reverting) but once I updated the firmware it works perfect. I have also tested this using Fedora 32. Audio works as good here as it does in Windows but if I want to change my profile I either reboot into Windows or use an OTG cable on my Android. The build quality is excellent. I do not hear any creaking noise when I move my head. I often forget I'm wearing these because they're so light/comfortable.

SXFI gen 2 is amazing. You need to get the head mapping mostly perfect to get a good experience.

N. Greenwood

I like the blutooth function of the AIR, but this one is dope.
