Creative SXFI Gamer Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
Creative has really taken audio to the next level with their SXFI range. I have yet to meet someone who has used it and gone back to what they were using before. I include myself in that too, I used the Creative Aurvana headphones with the Type-C mobile SXFI amp and still do actually. I have the Creative Theater on PC, and I have the Creative Gold on Mobile. What do they all have in common? SXFI audio holography. SXFI uses the mobile app to take a picture of your ears and face structure, then you get a profile that ensures what you hear is how YOUR ears would hear a real surround sound setup. This isn’t virtual surround, it’s audio holography and it’s a truly next-gen experience.
Creative SXFI Gamer Headset
While I love my Creative Theater Headphones, they’re really aimed at the movie lovers out there. However, I think they sound amazing so no complaints there, and I use them mostly for gaming and music. However, Creative things otherwise, and has created the SXFI Gamer, which come equipped with a more suitable gaming microphone, Battle Mode audio processing mode, a Kevlar USB-C cable and more.
