At the end of the characteristics, I want to talk about the main feature of these headphones – holographic sound or Super X-Fi. In order not to fill the review with superfluous words, I will try to talk about Super X-Fi technology under the spoiler.
Super X-Fi technology, developed over 20 years, uses complex algorithms and calculations to create a personalized sound for each person by analyzing the shape of the ears and face. As a result, the user gets the feeling of listening to 7.1-channel equipment. Creative calls this technology holographic audio. According to the manufacturer, the headphones are able to fully convey the cinematic sound without the use of an expensive multi-channel system. The vast majority of audio tracks created today are for external speakers. As headphone users, we listen to these types of tracks all the time. This means the sound is pumped straight into our ears, creating a claustrophobic soundstage where the sound seems to be unnaturally captured in our heads. To get a natural, magical sound experience that is truly tailored to your personality, the sound should play through your headphones, depending on how you perceive sound in real life. Creative uses sophisticated headphone audio back-calculation to reverse the claustrophobic effect, bringing the sound source out again so it sounds natural, like in the real world
