Creative SXFI THEATRE – Low-Latency Wireless USB Headphones for Movies

For any cinema lovers out there that are looking to take their movie-watching experience to the next level without breaking the bank, one of the best things you can buy is a pair of high-end Stereo Bluetooth Headphones that are designed specifically for watching movies. While going for a high-end Sound System for your Home Theater room would equally allow you to have a cinema-like sound-quality for watching series and movies, that solution tends to be much more expensive than simply getting yourself a pair of high-end Stereo Bluetooth Headphones. That said, if you’re looking for an affordable way of having an immersive cinema-like experience for watching movies and series at home or even to enjoy other media like listening to songs or playing video games, consider getting yourself the Creative SXFI THEATRE Headphones.

The Creative SXFI THEATRE Headphones are 2.4 GHz low-latency Bluetooth stereo headphones that feature a unique Super X-Fi Audio Technology with high-performance 50 mm drivers, built-in controls, and up to 30 hours of battery life.

Thanks to their Super X-Fi Audio Technology, these headphones can have their Sound Settings completely customized to fit each user’s personal preferences with their own custom-tuned SXFI (Super X-Fi) Audio Profile, and that’s what ultimately ensures that you can get a cinematic-like audio experience for whatever type of media you’re looking to use these headphones for.

Not only that, but they also come with a 3.5mm AUX-in Cable so that you can use them in Analog Mode with any non-USB devices. Best of all, they also come with a Detachable Mic included, which basically also allows you to use these headphones for gaming.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the Creative SXFI THEATRE and check out everything that these low-latency Bluetooth stereo headphones have to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the headphones’ size, the Creative SXFI THEATRE come at a fairly compact size, and they’re also quite lightweight, weighing just around 12.2 oz. (346 g) with their Detachable Mic equipped (or around 12.0 oz. / 339 g) without their Mic attached.

I’d also like to note that these low-latency Bluetooth stereo headphones feature a Closed Over-Ear Design, which ultimately ensures that these headphones can deliver a truly-immersive audio experience for just about any activity. Thanks to their Closed Over-Ear Design, you’re ensured that you’ll be able to listen and enjoy audio almost as if you’d be present in a scene, and that goes for whether you’re watching a movie or TV series, listening to music just as if you were in a concert, or even whenever you’re gaming, just as if you’d be on the game scene yourself.

Now, not only are the SXFI THEATER Headphones designed for delivering outstanding audio, but they’re also designed with comfort in mind and for long-lasting usage.

As such, these headphones also come equipped with high-quality Soft Protein Leather ear-cups that can ultimately offer you a very comfortable fit. In fact, the SXFI THEATER’s Soft Protein Leather ear-cups make these headphones extremely comfortable to wear, as the ear-cups themselves can very smoothly snug to your ears, which ultimately guarantees that you can always be in comfort while wearing these, even during extended periods of time (which especially goes for those longer 3-hour movies or even hardcore gaming sessions).

In addition to that, the headphones’ Soft Protein Leather ear-cups are also fully-replaceable, as the headphones themselves also integrate a quick-release mechanism that allows users to easily switch out their long-used ear-cups for a fresh new pair of replacement ear-pads.

Last but not least, these headphones also feature a very durable construction and come equipped with a soft and adjustable headband, which even features a nice and high-quality stamping of the company’s official Creative Logo.

AUDIO SPECS & AUDIO QUALITY

Moving on to the headphones’ Audio Specs. First and foremost, what mainly allows these headphones to produce such a rich and immersive audio is the fact that they come equipped with High-Performance 50 mm Neodymium-Magnet Drivers, which are specially tuned to deliver a powerful audio while maintaining clarity and well-balanced sound for your favorite music.

Thanks to that, you can get a truly immersive audio performance out of these headphones, one that’ll also have a really powerful and punchy cinematic bass to it. I’d also like to add that these headphones feature a Frequency Response that can vary between 20 to 20,000 Hz.

In addition to that, you can also fine-tune the headphones Sound Settings thanks to their Super X-Fi Audio Technology, which, via their Smartphone Companion App (the SXFI AIR Control App – discussed at the end of the article in greater detail), allows users to create and completely customized their own custom-tuned SXFI (Super X-Fi) Audio Profile so that the Creative SXFI THEATRE Headphones better fit each user’s personal audio preferences.

Moreover, the SXFI THEATRE Headphones also come with a Detachable Mic included, which not only provides gaming enthusiasts with a form of having clear communications between their teammates while in-game, but also allows more casual users to have crystal-clear voice chats on online conversations with their friends over Skype.

INTERFACE / CONTROLS

Now, for the headphones’ interface, we have a very simple set of built-in controls that come organized in an extremely user-friendly manner.

Keep in mind that all of the headphones’ built-in controls can be found at their left ear-cup. So, starting at the front-side of their left ear-cup and going from top to bottom, we have a Power On & Off / Bluetooth-Connect Button, and after that we have the headphones’ Detachable Microphone port (for gaming and voice calls).

Then, right at the bottom-side of the headphones’ left ear-cup, we also have the headphones’ USB-C Charging Port (used to recharge their internal battery), which is then followed by a 3.5mm AUX-in port (which can be used for connecting the headphones’ included 3.5mm AUX-in Cable).

As mentioned before, thanks to the headphones’ 3.5mm AUX-in port and their included 3.5mm AUX-in Cable, you’re also able to use the Creative SXFI THEATRE in Analog Mode with any non-USB devices.

Then, going further up towards the back-side of the headphones’ left ear-cup, we also have a Mic Mute Button and a Volume Control Dial (for increasing or decreasing the headphones’ overall volume level), which are then finally followed by the headphones’ unique Super X-FI Button (which can be used to enable and disable a user’s personal Super X-Fi Audio Profile).

CONNECTIVITY & COMPATIBILITY

Now, since the Creative SXFI THEATRE Headphones can mainly be used as Wireless Bluetooth Stereo headphones, they also come with a SXFI TX Wireless Transmitter and a USB Extension, which are the two accessories that are used for their Bluetooth Connectivity / Bluetooth Pairing.

Note that while for a PC connection (either for gaming, for listening to music, etc.), you’ll just need their SXFI TX Wireless Transmitter, for something else like a console you’ll probably need to use their USB Extension.

For their Bluetooth Connectivity, these headphones feature a 2.4 GHz low-latency Wireless Transmission which can stay perfectly stable for a Maximum Operating Range of around 33 ft. (10 m).

In terms of compatibility, you can use the Creative SXFI THEATRE Headphones for Windows OS (Windows 7, 8.0 and 8.1, and Windows 10 for either 32 bit or 64 bit versions), for Mac OS (Mac OS X v10.9 and above), as well as for consoles like the PS4 and PS5, and also for the Nintendo Switch.

In addition, you can also use them directly connected to your personal devices like a Smartphone or tablet, and that goes for both Android and iOS devices.

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

As mentioned before, these Wireless Bluetooth Stereo headphones can offer you up to 30 hours of battery life on a single charge, meaning that you really never have to worry about them running out of power halfway through a breath-taking movie scene or gaming round.

To recharge their battery whenever the headphones are running low on power, all you have to do is to connect their included USB-C to USB-A Charging Cable to their USB-C Charging port, and then you just have to wait a couple of hours to have their battery recharged back to full.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The SXFI AIR Control App

Via the headphones’ Smartphone Companion App – which is called the SXFI AIR Control App and is available to download for free for both iOS as well as for Android devices – you can also further tune the headphone’s audio settings.

That said, via the SXFI AIR Control App, users can create and fully-customized their own custom-tuned SXFI (Super X-Fi) Audio Profile so that the Creative SXFI THEATRE Headphones better fit their own personal audio preferences.

Not only that, but the App also allows you to control and personalize the color of the headphones’ customizable RGB Ear-Cup Ring Lights, for which you can choose from 16 million colors.
