"Creative's Super X-Fi technology is impressive, making it sound like you're actually listening to external speakers positioned around a room as opposed to a pair of headphones, adding depth and richness to the audio. The SXFI Air utilizes this tech and works great with the Nintendo Switch's Bluetooth transmitters. Whether you're trotting around your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons or soaring through the air in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the sound quality is incredible and brings the game world to life. If you're looking for one of the most unique—and best—audio experiences, then there's no better choice than the SXFI Air." - GAMESPOT

"Even more dramatic is the improvement while watching (Avengers) Infinity War, with the sound of super-heroes zooming and panning smoothly across the screen. And some of the large-scale battle scenes with rival armies charging across the plains of Wakanda almost feel as though I’m listening to an expensive multi-speaker surround sound system. Switching back to Queen again, the wired connection helps to deliver a much greater sense of space as Brian May’s guitar solos go bouncing from left-to-right, and the operatic chorus on Bohemian Rhapsody sounds truly epic as the SXFI effect allows it to really open up and deliver a sonic punch." - TECH RADAR

  • How do these connect to the PS5?

    • +1

      My guess is the 3.5mm Jack Line-in on the Dualsense controller

    • Hey, you may connect it to the PS5 via 3.5mm or USB! :)

  • +5

    I have these headphones, they're a bit gimmicky but the SXFI does noticeably increase the sound stage. Sound quality is OK (I'm no audiophile) but I believe you need these plugged in via USB-C to get the best sound quality. The build quality is beyond rubbish, the faux leather or whatever they have on the headphones started peeling off within a week. I wouldn't recommend these.

    • How are the mics on this?

    • Hey Sid1, we're sorry to hear about your experience. It seems like you may have a defective unit, and we would like to make it right for you. You may contact us at https://au.creative.com/rma/ with your order number, and our Customer support team will get back to you.

    • Agree with this, SXFI though somewhat gimmicky with their other products is very functional with this, and you can switch it off and use PS5’s own 3D audio equivalent if preferred. Definitely agree the faux leather on the headband is rubbish, I used a decent cushiony tennis grip on mine to improve the comfort etc. The ear cups are considerably more durable (within reason) and the sound quality especially with the EQ software and good sources is pretty decent

  • The headphones look fantastic with great features, but why just 10 hours of battery for such a large headphone?

  • I bought multiple SXFI products from Creative. The little dongle, the AIR, AIR C, Outlier AIR V2.

    Am not an audiophile, but for movies and game engines which do positional audio very well (like Arma 3), SXFI is incredible for the increased sound stage. I can't say ALL music will sound better though, it's a matter of taste. You can turn the SXFI effect off with a press of a button on the headphone.

    As to the AIR, the faux leather is not likely to last over a year. I had a devil of a time getting it to work with my Android phone when the AIR was first released. You would normally need to download the SXFI App, but I had to download a second app called SXFI Air Control to get the AIR to work properly with my phone.

    To control the volume on the headphone, and skip tracks forward and back, the left earcup is essentially a touch controller. You swipe with your finger up, down, front and back.

    In order to get the best out of the SXFI effect, you are required to set up an account with the SXFI app and then your face, left ear and right ear need to be profiled with your phone camera. If you are concerned about privacy, this could be an issue.
