The Sound of Perfection

Experience your MP3 music as the artist originally intended with ZEN X-Fi - the first player to restore the quality of compressed music with award-winning X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity Audio technology.

Indulge in rich audio where you can hear your music in crystal clear clarity. Take in guitar strumming, crisp cymbal clashes and deep pounding bass as detail lost during file compression are now beautifully restored. The built-in X-Fi technology intelligently moves a conventional left/right earphone stereo source away from your ears, virtually expanding it for an audio experience with a breathtakingly realistic depth of field. You'll feel as if you were listening to your music from a pair of high end speakers.

Well what can I say this to me is better than the Ipod and I own both, the software is more user friendly, if you have a Divx file and the system doesn't support it the software doesn't throw errors at you complaining it simply begins converting it by its self and then transfers it to the Zen, the Wi Fi is brilliant all my music and videos stored on my Windows home server are simply played through it so rather than only having 16GB of space it actually has 2TB of space from my server, so when I'm at home I have no need to transfer all of my music to the Zen just play them from the server, and when I want to go somewhere transfer them to the Zen simple.
The Zen GUI is fast and very simple to use the on board speaker is not great but why do you need it? same with the microphone but these are features I have no need to use.
For simplicity this is bliss far simpler than the Ipod and much smaller.
Picture quality is great I don't think I would want to view an entire movie on it but if I was travelling for a while this would suffice for a sort avi film.
Great device well worth it.

 What a Great Piece Of Kit !

I have always bought creative products and been please with their performance. However when the X-fi Zen was released i thought just another product, but i was wrong. The claims by the pro mo is spot on. The enhanced sound is fantastic and plugeed into my high end hi fi is as good if not better than a CD, Guys and Girls buy this you will not be disappointed, it out performs other makes of players in this price range yes i mean the gimmicky Ipods.

 Great player!

I've got it and it's truly amazing :d the sound is indeed perfect for someone who listens to music occasionally (i mean, it's very nice but i assume you won't reach "full hd studio sound" with it :p). The x-fi feature is more than just commercial talk. It works, i've tested it with some of the songs i listen too and you really notice a difference with and without the x-fi. The music sound much clearer and you reach a broader spectrum.

The picture is also very nice. I've seen a few films on it already, including bolt, which has a lot of bright colours and looked really great :)

The ears you get with this player are also super (that is, if you like in-ears of course, i know people who hate those kind of ears :p) they cost about €50 alone in the stores here (in belgium), so that's really a plus.

This is my third creative and i'm very pleased with it :) i recommended it to everyone who's looking for a new mp3-player.

 quick question

No doubt this is a powerful piece of kit but to those who have bought this. Does it come with any memory card. Cos specs say it can handle memory cards, just wondering if it comes with any.
