Creative Launches SXFI TRIO: USB-C In-ears with the Super X-Fi Difference

Creative Technology today announced the launch of the Creative SXFI TRIO, a triple-driver USB-C in-ear headphones that is designed to deliver high-quality holographic audio with all-day comfort on Android phones, PCs and laptops.

Implemented with the latest Super X-Fi Gen2 technology, users can expect greater accuracy in personalization and a better all-round audio experience. Powered by the same triple-driver system as the well-received Aurvana Trio and fitted with a custom-designed Kevlar USB-C cable, SXFI TRIO sets to exceed expectations with balanced, accurate, and natural-sounding digital audio for users on the go.
Wired for Pristine Digital Audio

SXFI TRIO delivers pristine digital audio and great performance powered by an in-house tuned, hybrid triple-driver system. Each of the three drivers (two precision balanced armature drivers for detailed mids and highs, and a bio-cellulose driver for powerful yet clean bass) plays an important part to achieve maximum audio fidelity. Yielding up to 100 dB SNR and 0.008% IMD, SXFI TRIO offers users exceptional audio clarity with balanced and accurate audio that is natural sounding.

Intricately designed and engineered, SXFI TRIO is also fitted with a custom-designed, Kevlar-reinforced cable for exceptional tensile strength, and wrapped in an aluminium and copper shield for higher durability. Its all-round superior quality makes it perfect for use on mobile devices while on the go.

The cream of the features crop is the critically-acclaimed Super X-Fi technology, which is incorporated through an attached in-line SXFI WIRE, which is a 40% smaller version of the already finger-sized SXFI AMP, the first-ever Super X-Fi product and an icon in its own right. Users can enjoy holographic audio which is personalized for an all-natural surround audio experience, that can rival a high-end 7.1 surround sound system.

Work-Learn-Play from Home All Day

SXFI TRIO truly sets itself apart with a new level of audio realism for calls, and makes video calls with family and friends more intimate. It's also excellent for long calls, where the spatialization of Super X-Fi eliminates the fatigue associated with conventional headphones.

As such, SXFI TRIO is the perfect companion to Work-Learn-Play from home with, instead of bulky headphones.

SXFI TRIO's angled earbuds are intricately designed and fine-tuned for long-lasting comfort, and it comes with 6 pairs of different silicone ear tip sizes, so it will be a breeze to find the perfect fit.

Creative's CEO Sim Wong Hoo said, "The SXFI TRIO is an all-rounder, ideal for all day in all places. It's a miniaturized wonder. The triple-driver performance can rival high-end, bulky headphones; with Super X-Fi integrated, I believe it will be very hard to match. Moreover, you are getting two products for the price of one, because it basically integrates the SXFI AMP and the Aurvana Trio into one - their combined price is twice that of SXFI TRIO."

Pricing and Availability

SXFI TRIO is priced at S$199 (139.99 USD) and is available here.

Gonna have to agree here. I like Creative, but this marketing jargon is a little clueless. There is literally no such thing as "holographic audio". The statement is a contradiction in terms.

I mean, it looks like a decent seat of in-ears, especially for the asking price, but yeah...
Also, they can only provide a single example of phones it works with and apparently it doesn't work with any Samsung phones...

This Creative DSP marketing is next level, even Clevo/Sager is installing this garbage into their DTR machines, previous setups had ESS + Burr Brown setup now they all have is Super SXFI BS chip which no one knows what it does, what a load of crap. I have a dedicated DAC+AMP (Modi + Alex Cavalli) with speakers and 6XX, did my due research on how things work but this whole DSP nonsense is useless and frustrating for consumer on what to expect.

"A hologram is a physical recording of an interference pattern which uses diffraction to reproduce a three-dimensional light field, resulting in an image which retains the depth, parallax, and other properties of the original scene.


You could have just said "3D SOUND" and I'd have believed you.

Super X-FI is actually pretty cool. I tried it out at CES and the difference is noticeable, even for someone like me, who is not an audiophile at all!

That was 15+ years ago. Really, get over it.

Now that's an understatement. I had an A3D card and playing Thief 1 back in the day with surround sound speakers was just as realistic then as headphones + steam audio is today. I think Steam Audio with proper working HRTF is finally an improvement over Aureal too thanks to vertical audio cues though. It's been amazing how slowly positional audio has progressed since Aureal went under, I do wonder what creative had to do with it.

Well creative couldn't beat them, so sued them into bankruptcy, then bought all their ip for super cheap. Then swept all the tech under the rug (discontinued product advancement and support) like it never happened
