Featuring X-Fi Audio Technologies to Improve Audio Playback for the iPhone, iPod and any other Portable Entertainment Device
Creative, a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products, today announced the Aurvana X-Fi™ Noise-Canceling Headphones, which improve audio playback for the iPhone, iPod, PC, Mac, PSP, and other portable entertainment devices. The Creative Aurvana X-Fi Noise-Canceling Headphones are the world’s first noise-canceling headphones to feature award-winning X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity audio technologies to enhance audio playback and deliver virtual surround sound. Priced at US$299.99, the Creative Aurvana X-Fi Noise-Canceling Headphones are now available at Amazon.com, and will be available later this month at InMotion, and us.creative.com.
“The Aurvana X-Fi Noise-Canceling Headphones, with our X-Fi Crystalizer and CMSS-3D technologies that dramatically improve audio playback, provide so much more than the noise cancellation in Bose headphones,” said Steve Erickson, vice president of audio for Creative. “Noise cancellation sets the stage for an excellent listening experience, and the X-Fi audio technologies up-convert MP3 and AAC music to bring out the best in music and movies.”
The Creative X-Fi Crystalizer utilizes algorithms to make any digital audio sound better by intelligently and selectively restoring the highs and lows that were lost during MP3 or other compression. Creative X-Fi CMSS-3D virtually transforms stereo headphone playback into the more enjoyable and immersive listening experience of a surround sound speaker system. Movies sound like they’re played on a home theater system instead of being trapped between the listener’s ears.
The Aurvana X-Fi Noise-Canceling Headphones reduce up to 90 percent of ambient noise and feature memory foam that molds to the user’s ears, providing hours of comfortable listening during a long flight or workday at the office. Users can independently select noise cancellation, X-Fi Crystalizer, CMSS-3D and volume with convenient controls on the headphones. All of the technologies can be enjoyed together for up to nine hours from two AAA batteries, and unlike most competing headphones, the Aurvana X-Fi Noise-Canceling Headphones can also function without power.
Each set of Aurvana X-Fi Noise-Canceling Headphones includes an iPhone-compatible cable in addition to a hard carrying case for secure transport.
