Creative SXFI GAMER USB-C Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2021-01-06

After installing the headset on our test system and modifying the initial settings a bit in order to fit our preferences, we have tested it while playing Doom Eternal, Gears 5 but also Dark Pictures: Man of Medan. The SXFI headphone holography really adds quite a bit of atmosphere to the games, the “Battle Mode” enhancing the way you figure out how the enemies are positioned around you. The 50mm drivers are capable of delivering quite a bit of bass, while the voices are also clearly heard while using the standard SXFI or regular non-surround modes.

Product Features

Super X-Fi Technology—Award-winning Audio Technology

Amassing a total of 23 “Best of CES” awards over 2 years (2019 and 2020), Super X-Fi Headphone

Holography is our critically-acclaimed technology that is set to transform your audio experience. From

the creators of Sound Blaster, Super X-Fi captures the listening experience of a high-end multi-speaker

system in a professional studio and recreates the same expansive experience in your headphones.

Super X-Fi is designed with a complex inverse computation on the headphone audio signal to reverse

the claustrophobic effect, bringing the source of the sound outside again–so that it sounds natural, just

like in the real world. With a custom sound profile made via a sophisticated Head and Ear-Mapping

process, experience a world of possibilities with headphones on, wherever you may be.


BATTLE Mode—Offense is the Best Defense

BATTLE Mode is a brand-new Super X-Fi audio mode that offers the best audio projection and

directionality on headphones. Gain an extra edge in First-person Shooter (FPS) games on top of hyperrealistic audio from Super X-Fi and expect to hear audio cues with a new level of clarity and depth

that pinpoints your enemies’ locations as well as their distance from you to an unprecedented level

of accuracy. Bringing you the next level of surround sound in FPS gaming where every bullet and

movement counts, BATTLE Mode is capable of delivering even the slightest acoustic detail that one

may easily miss. Whether it’s the faintest footsteps or a quick tactical gun reload, you can now efficiently pinpoint where they’re coming from. Offense is the best defense with SXFI GAMER—skillfully take down enemies before they even realize you’re there.


Custom-designed Kevlar USB-C Cable

Strong. Durable. Light. Flexible. Further enhance your gaming experience with SXFI GAMER’s custom designed, high-speed Kevlar USB-C cable. SXFI GAMER is fitted with a Kevlar-reinforced cable that

has been meticulously crafted and engineered for exceptional tensile strength, which is wrapped in an

aluminum and copper shield that makes it highly durable. The cable is then finished with a nylon braid to

achieve maximum flexibility, and is capable of high-speed data transfer to drive the maximum potential

of the gaming headset.


CommanderMic with inPerson® Mic Technology

It’s our best one yet. SXFI GAMER is paired with our CommanderMic, a streaming microphone that is

designed to deliver the same sensitivity and clarity as many professional microphones with its unique

acoustic design and integrated pop filter. CommanderMic is further enhanced with our latest SXFI

inPerson® Microphone technology that uses an algorithm to effectively detect human voice and focus

on enhancing audible speech while cancelling out ambient noises. Speak with utter confidence and be

heard clearly as you communicate your game plan with your teammates as if you’re next to them in



RGB Light Rings with 16.7 Million Colors

Light the way with SXFI GAMER’s fully-customizable RGB light rings, which have 16.7 million colors to

select from. SXFI GAMER allows you to change the ear cups’ light rings to basically any color you like.

Simply connect your SXFI GAMER to the SXFI Control software on PC / Mac to customize the headset

to your heart’s desire. If you can’t decide on a color, why not have it all? Switch to the Rainbow Pulse

mode to wear them all at once!
