Creative launches the SXFI Gamer headset utilizing the awesome Super X-Fi technology

by: John -

I've been priveleged to experience Super X-Fi at Creative Labs booth at CES for two years in a row and both times, it's blown me away. Having used a few of their Super X-Fi products at home and being a gamer, I'm excited about this one.

Today Creative announced the SXFI GAMER headset that is built for us gaming folks. The headset will utilize a BATTLE Mode profile that's setup especially for those that enjoy first person shooters. I'm expecting the same awesome fully immersive sound coming from the SXFI GAMER that I experienced using the portable DAC. Here's hoping the gamer-centric profile will help enhance all the environmental sounds in games as well as provide a richer audio experience.

The SXFI GAMER will also be home to a brand new microphone design dubbed the CommanderMic. It boasts ambient noise suppression and improved voice pickup using SXFI inPerson technology.

To help with cable strength, it'll be reinforced with Kevlar and attaches to your computer via USB.  And it wouldn't be a gamer product without a little color thrown into the mix as the cups have RGB lighting with up to 16.7 million options for color.

$129.99 is what the price of the SXFI GAMER and you can order it now from their website.

Creative SXFI GAMER Headset: REKT Everyone Else
Super X-Fi Gen2 Ultra-Realistic Holographic Audio Set to Stun Beyond Limits with All-New BATTLE Mode and CommanderMic

Milpitas, Calif. July 9, 2020 – Creative Technology has launched its flagship gaming headset, the Creative SXFI GAMER. Powered by the exceptional BATTLE Mode audio profile, a brand-new CommanderMic with professional-grade clarity, wired through a Kevlar-reinforced USB cable and topped off with a stunning RGB light design, SXFI GAMER is simply the ultimate weapon for complete gaming immersion and domination.

Gaming Sounds Real Like Never Before

Having snagged 23 best-of-show awards over the last two editions of CES 2019-2020, users and critics have been blown away by the next-generation realism of Super X-Fi headphone holography.

Since the start of this year, Super X-Fi products have been upgraded to Gen2, an improved and expanded version of Super X-Fi which incorporates key enhancements like higher accuracy in personalizing a user’s audio profile, extending more details in the surround sound configuration, better audio positioning and fidelity.

The SXFI GAMER incorporates all of these and goes one step further with BATTLE Mode, a specially-designed audio profile which optimizes Super X-Fi to a perfect fit for FPS games – environmental imaging, audio cues, distance projection and directionality are all enhanced with unprecedented levels of accuracy for the competitive gamer’s benefit, while preserving the essence of the award-winning holographic audio experience.

Look, Feel and Talk like a Pro Gamer

Besides its sharpshooter audio quality, the SXFI GAMER performs in various ways befitting bona fide pro gamers.

The CommanderMic makes its debut in a completely new acoustic design which includes an integrated pop filter. It sports Creative’s latest SXFI inPerson microphone technology, which uses a special algorithm to enhance speech pick-up while suppressing ambient noise effectively.

The SXFI GAMER also ups the cool factor with its custom-designed, Kevlar-reinforced USB cable, which is meticulously engineered for strength and durability as it drives high-speed data transfer to deliver its maximum potential for gaming. The new RGB lighting design on the earcups, which allows users to customize their combat get-up with 16.7 million colors to choose from, provides the finishing move for the SXFI GAMER’s assault on gaming headsets.

Creative’s CEO Sim Wong Hoo said, “Gaming has always been entrenched in our DNA, since the earliest days of Sound Blaster more than 30 years ago.

“After we successfully created Super X-Fi, which critics have hailed as the holy grail of headphone technology, we did not rest on our laurels. We went ahead and spent a great deal of effort and resources to further improve Super X-Fi, especially targeting the gaming sector. The BATTLE Mode is here, and together with the CommanderMic and other features, the SXFI GAMER truly embodies the culmination of our very best technologies in a gaming headset.

“At the same time, the SXFI GAMER allows you to communicate with others as if they were in front of you, and also they would be able to hear you clearly. Hence it would be a great tool to Work-Learn-Play from home with.”
