Creative SXFI AIR Wireless Headphones with Super-Fi Technology

Holographic Audio Adds Spatial Effects

Creative Technology announced the release of two new headphones featuring Super X-Fi technology, which boasts the ability to recreate the soundstage of a multi-speaker surround system inside headphones. In addition, Super X-Fi technology provides a personalized listening experience that’s different for everyone, because it’s based on each user’s head and ear shape.

Super X-Fi technology is capable of recreating any sound in any directional space, including height elements. Super X-Fi uses complex algorithms and computationally intensive techniques to custom fit audio, for every individual, through a sophisticated Head and Ear-Mapping process. The company calls the listening experience holographic sound.

The new Super X-Fi headphones come in a wireless version called SXFI AIR ($159) and a USB wired version called SXFI AIR C ($129). Meanwhile, an optional product called SXFI AMP doubles as a headphone amplifier and adapter/enhancer to bring the Super X-Fi technology into any headphone.

“After the SXFI AMP, it was a natural next step to develop headphones with built-in Super X-Fi technology. With the SXFI AIR series, users can now enjoy the magic of headphone holography, complemented by the best of our headphone engineering. The SXFI AIR is meant to pave the way for the headphone industry to adopt Super X-Fi into all future headphones,” said Sim Wong Hoo, CEO of Creative Technology.
