Which ZEN player is right for you?
ZEN X-Fi 8GB is also available if you don't desire wireless streaming functions. Compare ZENs to narrow in on the Creative ZEN MP3 player that best suits your needs.

"The X-Fi has better sound, superb headphones, an amazing feature set, expandable storage via an SD card slot, an easy-to-use interface that will please users who don't want to work with a touch screen, and--here's the kicker--the ability to stream and download music from your PC wirelessly. It looks great, too, and it costs about half as much as Apple's current Wi-Fi-enabled iPod Touch players."

"The masses may continue to think iPod first when they need a new MP3 player--but it will be a shame if they do. The X-Fi is arguably the most innovative, feature-packed player on the market, and it's an absolute steal for the price." Creative Zen X-Fi MP3 Player

Luxury Insider

"A demonstration of Creative's X-Fi Crystalizer and X-Fi Expand technology (it restores the highs and lows of music typically lost during compression to the MP3 format) at the Screening Room in Singapore was suitably impressive as the difference in the quality of sound was immediately apparent."

ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN



"All in all, we were impressed with the ZEN X-Fi. For such a compact portable media player, its audio quality is impeccable and truly class-leading. X-Fi technology is a real gem."

ZEN X-Fi with Wireless LAN



"AS PMP's go, this is by far one of the most feature-rich players around now, with a wider array of supported formats and greater functionality than the iconic iPod. 16GB and 32GB versions of the ZEN X-Fi are also on the cards with support for Wi-Fi connectivity on the cards in the latter. All in all this is one Cool PMP that towers above the rest, notwithstanding its diminutive size."
