Creative Zen X-Fi2


The Zen series is Creative's offering in the personal media players market - consistent and decent little performers. We have their latest Touch screen model called the Zen X-Fi2, a sleek looking product which we hope will keep up to the expectations...

At 8 GB� for Rs. 8,999 MRP, the player would be a tad expensive. For about 1000 less the unit has good value, as the widescreen format and brightness offered is good. The looks are very impressive while overall audio performance is very good, thanks to...

Creative Zen X-Fi2


Get creative with your digital media and separate yourself from the masses.

Despite not being an iPod touch, Creative’s Zen X-Fi was a more than capable portable media player that offered several unique features and standout style. Announced last month, the follow-up Zen X-Fi2 carries over all that was good from the original,...

Creative ZEN XFi-2


Creative Zen X-Fi2 is not a standout MP3 player in many ways, but in terms of memory it is impressive. It also has a good reputation for sound quality. This may be just the right fit for someone who wants to be able to carry their entire music...

A large amount of storage means you can take your entire collection with you anywhere

Some features we've come to expect, including a camera, are absent

This unit is basic compared to competitors, but it does have an impressive amount of memory.

The ZEN X-Fi2 provides you with excellent video and audio quality while remaining small enough to easily fit in your pocket.

This device has impressive video and audio quality

We wish this MP4 player had a few more extra features

This player does exactly what it promises to do: play quality music and movies.

Great Media Player-Great Price


I got this media player because I went to go look for a new and good one for me that is in my price range. I ended up buying the X-FI 2 because it was very cheap and it supported a lot of formats, including .flac which I listen to ... Expand full review

Very good price ; Supports many audio formats including FLAC ; I can watch my torrented movies that are in .avi format ; Cool design ; Pretty durable (especially compared to any ipod) ; MicroSD Slot ; All the audio enhancers

Landscape is nice, but it would be nice to be able to switch over ; Swipe animations are slow, but it doesn't matter as long as it does what it's supposed to

Consumer review by:

Basically very good, only a few minor complaints


Basically an excellent player for those who want to play FLAC files along with mp3. The sound is very, very good and the audio enhancements available are very worthwhile. If you don't mind a lack of easy volume control, this is a very desirable device.

Excellent audio, the ear-buds that come with it sound great ; This player takes mp3, FLAC and mp4a too ; FM radio sound is very good as well, and it stores a lot more stations than I would ever use ; I don't use the video much, but it worked fine when I

Volume level is too hard to access ; Navigation of player contents is alright when your stationary, but while riding a bike or other activity, it's a pain to have to go thru all the screens ; Player lock works great, but it can be a real pain to unlock

Great Sound. Good touch screen after got used to it. A lot cheaper than any apple ipod touch screen

Takes a while to get used to touch screen

Consumer review by:

Great player


Good size.Dependable start up. Beautiful screen

Screen is a little touchy. Wouldn't let me separate tracks by genre. You have to make playlists

Consumer review by:

Creative will have to work on speeding the navigation!

I love the Zen X-fi2.


Okay... for something so small and yet it holds so much.... the Creative Zen X-fi2's rock! I've never had ANY issues with mine and I've never had any data loss like I've had to deal with recently with similar products, and I've never had to ... Expand...

It can hold massive amounts of storage and not lose data. Crystal clear sound and easily manged

As far as I know... none

Product Specifications

Introducing the first ever touchscreen player by Creative Technology - the ZEN X-Fi2. No fussy buttons involved, simply let your fingers work their magic across the 3" TFT LCD screen and gain access to all player features instantly. The ZEN X-Fi2 now allows you to experience stellar X-Fi technology even with your stored movies and FM radio, restoring audio to even higher levels of clarity than before. Immerse yourself in a natural listening experience as the state-of-the-art X-Fi technology intelligently moves the earphone stereo source away from your ears, simulating an audio experience from a pair of high-end stereo speakers. Take in rich detail from nifty guitar strumming and crisp cymbal clashes and complete the whole experience with the bundled EP-630 in-ear earphones. These premium earphones are designed to block out external noise and even come with three different sizes of ear tips to offer you the most optimum comfort. Besides a bigger screen size than its predecessor, the ZEN X-Fi2 supports multiple audio formats including the much desired Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC), which delivers audio without compromising on its original quality. The player also supports iTunes Plus (unprotected AAC format) which compresses audio data much more efficiently than older formats. Indulge in true pristine audio where you hear your music played the way it was meant to be heard.
