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...

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 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.

Can Creative crack the touchscreen market?

Excellent audio quality, decent set of bud earphones supplied, bright and colourful display, good value for money

Creative's first touchscreen MP3 player - but does it measure up?

Excellent sound quality ; X-Fi expand works ; The price is right ; microSD expansion ; Good earphones bundled

Touchscreen is horrible ; No one-hand operation ; Sluggish menu system ; Plasticky design

Creative Zen X-Fi2 portable media player

 

The Creative Zen X-Fi2 is a 16GB portable media player with a touch screen and gesture support that's reminiscent of the iPod Touch but not as elegant...

Excellent sound quality, plenty of features

Interface can sometimes be slightly sluggish, the body feels cheap and flimsy

Creative has impressed us with the latest addition to its gutsy range of media players. One could easily mistake the Creative Zen X-Fi2 for an Apple product, and overall it's a lovely lightweight portable media player.

Creative ZEN X-Fi2 review

 

The Creative ZEN X-fi2 is a light and compact PMP that has plenty of features under its hood. It has a simple look and clean design.The body front has a dark glossy finish with a chrome bezel. It is mainly occupied by a 3-inch TFT resistive touch...

Priced at £99 the Creative ZEN X-fi2 is a good PMP for its wide format support and sound quality. However, its rather slow response and the non-responsive touchscreen stopped it from becoming a superior product.

Creative Zen X-Fi 2 16GB review

 

Creative's Zen X-Fi 2 bears more than a passing resemblance to the iPod Touch with its metal back and large touchscreen, but is designed to be held horizontally instead of vertically.

Creative's Zen X-Fi 2 is a good MP3 player with excellent battery life that's let down by a very poor touchscreen.

The X-Fi2 may have a welterweight price, but with a touchscreen and FLAC support Creative's PMP isn't pulling any punches

A multimedia powerhouse it isn't, but this little Creative supplies satisfyingly big sound and for a tiny price

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.
