What the F***?!! . . . It was really
something else I think, all of us, there was a collective gasp when the technology was demonstrated to
us . . . its feels like big leap forward
Creative's new Super X-Fi audio tech is
FRIGGING MIND -BLOWING. The company known for Soundblaster finally has a new killer product, and
you'll probably want one too.
The device also made straightforward stereo
music tracks sound MAGICAL, as if you were in the room with the musicians playing live.
I had a listen and was left amazed.
Super X-Fi showed a lot of promise.
(Using Super X-Fi) I heard game clips
and it was insanely effective. INSANE.
.. no one in the industry could solve this
decade's-long problem. Creative's Super X-Fi could be the game changer.
Hands down, this was the best demo of CES—and
it's the product I'm most looking forward to reviewing this year.
Creative has the demo to beat at this
year's CES. The company is showing an early prototype of a product it calls Super X-Fi Headphone
Audio. And it blew my mind.
Creative ߪ looks to have finally cracked
the issue of fitting full sized speakers into a pair of portable cans... I heard it through the earphones in
exactly the same way I heard it via the speakers, and it was nothing short of AMAZING.
To bring this to a dongle that would just work
with any headphones and be super affordable, that's really the HOLY GRAIL of headphone processing
It was an amazing experience totally! I've
been in the business for 40 years, and that's some of the best sound I've heard. And for the price
point you're going to sell it for, IT'S OBSCENE.
I just finished the best demo of the show.
It's not a curved TV, it's not 8K, it is, wait for it, Creative Lab's new Super X-Fi
technology...And it just floors you ... it's gonna be a steal at US$150.
Well the fact that it's going to be
everyone's hands, you know, a product that everyone can afford, and it's something that is literally
going to change the way people listen to things by that one little dongle.
For a while there, I actually thought that the
speakers were on, and that there was nothing coming through both cans, until I took them off to hear nothing
emanating from the speakers.
This Holographic-Sound Headphone Dongle BLEW
MY MIND. This mind-blowing audio technology uses acoustic mapping and holographic sound to create a
headphone experience that's nearly indistinguishable from what you'd get out of a dedicated set of
You can take the headphones off, listening to
again; a three— or four—thousand Dolby Atmos system, and put the headphones on, and it will sound
just as good. In fact for my ears, I gotta say, it sounded better.
I listened to the demo and it was
MIND-BLOWING! The surround sound I heard from the headphone was amazing and I even took the headphones
off just to confirm that I wasn't hearing the sound from the physical surround speakers. Judging from the
guests' reactions, they were equally or almost as impressed as I am.
If you're curious about what ‘audio
holography' is, Creative Labs has the goods with its Super X-Fi technology. I gave it a good listen at
CES 2018, and it sounded glorious! After hearing the results, I was simply blown away. Even
with all the audio products I've tested over the years, my ears were never subjected to anything quite
During the audition, the Super X-Fi system
created a realistic sense of space as I listened to a soundtrack. It took the audio that would have
been usually stuck between my ears and projected outside the confines of my head. I was able to
pinpoint the sound sources in a room as well as gauge the distance between them.
I know, it's unbelievable that the
little ‘dongle' above can give you sound as good as a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround System (Dolby
Atmos 5.1.2) but it absolutely does!
As an audio engineer I readily claim that most
‘virtual' surround sound applications are junk - until now. Creative Lab's Super X-Fi blew
What impresses me the most is how Super X-Fi
managed to turn a standard 2.0 music track into a realistic live surround effect. It is done so well that
it's as if the artist is singing RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.
