SINGAPORE - 14 November 2019 - Creative Technology today announced the release of Creative SXFI THEATER, its latest breakthrough solution in wireless headphones. Featuring the audio realism of Creative’s award-winning Super X-Fi headphone holography (15 best-of awards at CES 2019), low-latency wireless audio transmission and long battery life, SXFI THEATER checks all the boxes for unsurpassed movie enjoyment.
Wireless Super X-Fi Audio with Virtually No Lag
Bluetooth headphones offer wireless audio connectivity, but latency issues are a common gripe for users. This is where SXFI THEATER has the edge - featuring a proprietary 2.4 GHz digital wireless audio transmission with five times less latency than a typical Bluetooth transmission, which translates to truly seamless audio and video sync for users. The transmission is performed via SXFI TX, a wireless transmitter USB dongle which accompanies the headphone. The effective distance of 10m can be extended through a supplied USB extension dock with a 1.2m-long cable.
At the heart of SXFI THEATER is its 50mm Neodymium drivers, that are tuned to deliver audio that is powerful yet accurate, and can provide cinematic bass which is absolutely essential for movie lovers.
Better Than the Real Cinema
SXFI THEATER completes the cinematic audio experience with Super X-Fi – the award-winning headphone holography technology which recreates the soundstage of a multi-speaker surround system that can rival a real cinema, and personalizes it by scanning the user’s head and ears, so that the custom-fit audio experience becomes natural like never before. In fact, SXFI THEATER provides a better experience by always placing users in the ‘sweet spot’ (the middle of a cinema), as may not be the case for cinema-goers. Moreover, unlike at the cinema, users are able to tweak the volume to their own liking – trivial yet essential!
The Perfect Headphone Companion for Movies
The new cinematic audio experience with SXFI THEATER is complemented by a slew of features which encourage extended usage and is ideal for movie binging. It clocks up to 30 hours of battery life which is amongst the best for wireless headphones; its soft and high-quality protein leather earcups provide a highly comfortable fit and are changeable, as part of a premium build quality and finish on this headphone.
With gaming in its DNA, SXFI THEATER is fitted with a detachable gaming microphone which has been engineered for clear communications, making it an excellent headphone choice for gamers who favor an immersive wireless gaming experience in game titles with cinematic audio. SXFI THEATER is compatible with PC, Mac, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Pricing and Availability
SXFI THEATER is priced at GBP 169.99 (excluding VAT) and is available on Creative.com.
