Touch screen and a 3″ LCD marks the progress of Creative’s X-Fi series of media players with the announcement of X-Fi2 today from Creative Europe. Video demo in the post later on as well. Pricing is as follows- 8GB: €129.99, 16GB: €179.99, 32GB: €229.99


The ZEN Xi-Fi2 now allows you to experience stellar X-Fi technology even with your stored movies and FM radio1, 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.

Choose from a player capacity of 8GB/16GB/32GB and if you need more memory, simply add a microSD memory card into the built-in slot. Enjoy that much more music, photos and videos at a mere touch! The ZEN X-Fi2 also supports RSS feeds offline and video out where you can share your videos and photos on the big screen TV.

Convenience at the touch of your fingers Touch and go
The digital world is now at your fingertips. The intuitive 3″ TFT LCD touchscreen allows you to navigate with ease and responds to your every touch.

Best audio quality with built-in X-Fi technology Pump it up with X-Fi technology
Apart from normal audio files, you can now experience the prowess of X-Fi technology with your stored movies and FM Radio1. The adjustable X-Fi Crystalizer allows you to experience the very essence of music perfection as it intelligently restores detail lost during file compression with just one touch. Take in also the most acoustically natural sound staging in headphone audio available from a media player with the X-Fi Expand technology.

Multi-format support Supports multiple audio formats
You can now enjoy your music even in lossless audio formats such as FLAC files. In addition, the player also supports iTunes Plus (unprotected AAC format) besides other conventional formats such as MP3, WMA and Audible4. Use the Creative Centrale to rip, transfer and manage your media content easily.

Watch movies and images on your TV Video out in X-Fi
Enjoy movies in X-Fi or share images with your family and friends on a large screen, when you connect the ZEN X-Fi2 to the TV (A/V cable available separately).

Built-in microSD card slot Expandable memory to provide more media content
Enjoy the flexibility of having unlimited content accessibility on your player. This means you won’t have to worry about not having enough onboard memory for content. Simply slot in a microSD card to enjoy more music, movies and pictures!

Read RSS feeds at your convenience RSS feeds supported

RSS feeds are downloaded in their entirety with both text and images. Just sync the player via the USB connection and download RSS feeds from your computer and read them on your ZEN X-Fi2 on-the-go.
