Creative has launched the SXFI Trio in-ear headphones that feature an in-line SXFI Amp and a hybrid triple-driver system that yields a 100 dB SNR and 0.008% IMD. The in-line Super X-Fi Amp allows for holographic audio that simulates a 5.1 or 7.1 channel ambience even from stereo sources.

Creative has recently announced the launch of the SXFI Trio USB Type-C in-ear headphones. The SXFI Trio uses a hybrid triple-driver system for balanced, natural-sounding audio and is fitted with a custom-designed Kevlar USB-C cable. 

Of the three drivers, two are precision-balanced armatures for detailed mids and highs while the other is a bio-cellulose driver designed for powerful bass. The SXFI Trio is rated for a 100 dB SNR and a 0.008% intermodulation distortion (IMD).

As evident from the name, the SXFI Trio uses an in-line Gen2 Super X-Fi holographic sound tech that simulates a multi-channel surround experience. For those not in the know, Creative's SXFI enables recreating a virtual 5.1 or 7.1 channel ambience from stereo sources. The Trio's SXFI in-line implementation is about 40% smaller than the already small SXFI Amp.

Creative bundles six pairs of angled silicone ear tips of various sizes to enable a good fit. The company says that the SXFI Trio essentially integrates an SXFI Amp and an Aurvana Trio into a single in-ear headphone, whose performance can rival bulky high-end over-the-head headphones. 

The Creative SXFI Trio is priced at S$199 (US$143) and can be purchased from Creative.com.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
