Creative Labs has added the ZEN X-Fi digital media player to its range – featuring Creative’s state-of-the-art X-Fi technology and wireless capabilities.

This light and compact credit card sized digital media player is available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models. The ZEN X-Fi improves digital audio sound by enhancing some of the high and lows lost during file compression.

The ZEN X-Fi 16GB and 32GB models feature wireless technology, for downloading and streaming music and videos wirelessly from a PC to the player instantly within a home network, without the need for messy cables. The ZEN X-Fi chat function means users can keep in touch with friends and family at free Wi-Fi hotspots through Yahoo Messenger and MSN Messenger.

The 2.5 inch colour LCD screen allows a decent viewing experience when watching video, and the included EP-830 earphones offer excellent noise-isolation capabilities and minimise significant sound loss.

Sharing audio is easy with a built-in speaker in the ZEN X-Fi, so family and friends can easily enjoy music and movies without the need for a separate speaker system.

The ZEN X-Fi also includes an integrated 32 station FM radio, SD card slot, a battery life of up to 36 hours audio and 5 hours video playtime, voice recording functions, and a personal organiser for the ultimate all-in-one entertainment solution.
