Creative Technology today announced the release of Creative SXFI AIR GAMER, which incorporates the best features of the SXFI AIR and SXFI GAMER for the most versatile Super X-Fi headphones yet. With Bluetooth 5.0 and USB-C connectivity, the SXFI AIR GAMER offers users the best of both worlds - wire-free music enjoyment, and lag-free movie and gaming when plugged to PC or consoles. It also comes with a slew of wizardries that improve voice communication, be it in games, work conference calls, or online lessons.

Other features include intuitive touch control function on the earcup, the CommanderMic microphone with professional-grade clarity, and the SXFI BATTLE Mode audio profile to deliver the optimal experience for avid gamers. It is fitted with a Kevlar-reinforced USB cable for greater durability and plush oversized earpads for longer-lasting comfort.





Great for Movie and Music, Even Better for Gaming

Designed with high-quality 50 mm Neodymium Drivers, the SXFI AIR GAMER delivers rich, vivid details with exceptional clarity and powerful bass for an immersive experience powered by Super X-Fi, the award-winning technology which delivers high-definition holographic audio as though there is a high-end multi-speaker system set up within the headphones.

These hybrid wireless USB headphones also feature the new SXFI BATTLE Mode, a specially-designed audio profile that offers a better gaming experience for users with precise audio cues, distance projection, and directionality to provide gamers an edge when playing first-person-shooter games.

Wizardries of Voice Technologies

Sporting the latest CommanderMic that showcases a unique acoustic design with an integrated pop filter and SXFI inPerson Microphone Technology, the SXFI AIR GAMER offers better noise suppression while amplifying the voice pick-up for clearer and better communication. With the audio realism of Super X-Fi, it is also an ideal headset for work conference calls and e-learning at home, as users would feel they are in front of the other party within the same room.

Making its debut, the all-new GamerChat technology allows users to experience the Super X-Fi holographic audio effects not only for gameplay but also mobile chat via Bluetooth. With this feature, users can simultaneously pick-up incoming calls without having to remove their headphones and be able to jump right back into the action with no interruptions to the gameplay. It also works well with gaming platforms like Nintendo Switch that does not typically support in-game communications.

For All-Day Comfort

Fitted with new protein leather earpads that are plush to the touch, the SXFI AIR GAMER brings the comfort level up a few notches from previous models. The earpads are perforated for better breathability, and are oversized for more ear room and better cushioning. All of these will help to reduce headphone fatigue, even with long hours of use.

An Abundance of Accessories

  • Custom-designed Kevlar-reinforced USB-C cable, meticulously engineered for greater durability and strength
  • 3.5 mm line-in cable, that allows users to connect to any legacy audio source to be enhanced with Super X‑Fi
  • CommanderMic, mainly for gaming and conference calls
  • NanoBoom microphone as an alternative to the longer CommanderMic
  • A USB-C to USB-A adapter is also included for connection to older USB-A devices
  • With an intricate design, comfort, excellent audio quality, and versatile connectivity, the Creative SXFI AIR GAMER has all the makings of the ideal all-rounder headphones for gaming, music and movies, as well as work conference calls and e-learning.

Pricing and Availability

Creative SXFI AIR GAMER is priced at S$199 and is available at Creative.com.

Wireless microphones are awful, let's see how this one does.
It also looks a bit hefty and not too comfy but I'm not an expert, might like it in person.

That's not true, there are very nice bluetooth and 2,4ghz headphones, but in the end it depends on the type of usage, and more importantly in the case of bluetooth, the codec implementation. Bose QC235, Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT and Sony WH1000-X3 and X4 the proof.

That won't happen because there is no support for those codecs in Windows and this is for PC and console gaming, APTX and APTXLL is the best you can get but that is enough for CD quality audio. The problem is how the codec is implemented in the devices, which is usually not very good.
