Touch the Sound of Perfection
The Creative Labs' ZEN X-Fi gave you the sound of perfection. With the ZEN X-Fi2, perfection just got better.

ZEN X-Fi2 now allows you to experience the sound of perfection even with your stored movies and FM radio, thanks to X-Fi technology that restores audio to even higher levels of clarity than before. Immerse yourself in a natural listening experience as the state-of-the-art X-Fi technology intelligently moves the earphone stereo source away from your ears, simulating an audio experience from a pair of high-end stereo speakers.

Pristine Audio Across Multiple Formats
The latest player from Creative is a step up from its predecessor, the popular ZEN X-Fi. Besides a bigger screen size, the ZEN X-Fi2 supports multiple audio formats, including the much desired Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC), which delivers audio without compromising on its original quality as well as iTunes Plus (unprotected AAC format), which compresses audio data much more efficiently than older formats. Indulge in true pristine audio where you hear your music played the way it was meant to be heard.

To satisfy your download needs, the ZEN X-Fi2 is compatible with DRM-free services, including Amazon's MP3 downloads, eMusic, Napster downloads, and iTunes Plus. [NOTE: The ZEN X-Fi2 is not compatible with DRM9 or DRM10 services such as Napster-to-Go and Rhapsody].

Video-Out Feature for Big Screen TV Display
In addition to this 8 GB version, there are also 32 GB and 16 GB versions available. And if you need even more memory, simply add a microSD memory card into the built-in slot. Enjoy that much more music, photos, and videos at a mere touch! The ZEN X-Fi2 also supports RSS feeds offline and video out where you can share your videos and photos on a big screen TV.

Premium Noise-Blocking Earphones
Take in rich detail from nifty guitar strumming and crisp cymbal clashes, and complete the whole experience with the bundled EP-630 in-ear earphones. These premium earphones are designed to block out external noise and even come with three different sizes of ear tips to offer you optimum comfort.


Touch and go
Your digital world is now at your fingertips. The intuitive 3-inch TFT LCD touchscreen allows you to navigate with ease and responds to your every touch.
Pump it up with X-Fi technology
ZEN X-Fi2 now brings the power of X-Fi to bear on more types of entertainment! Building on the ZEN X-Fi, ZEN X-Fi2 now allows you to experience the sound of perfection even with your stored movies and FM radio--with X-Fi technology that restores audio to even higher levels of clarity than before.
Supports multiple audio formats
You can now enjoy your music even in Free Lossless Audio Codec formats (FLAC files). In addition, the player also supports iTunes Plus (unprotected AAC format) besides the other various formats such as MP3, WMA, and Audible 4. [NOTE: The ZEN X-Fi2 is not compatible with DRM9 or DRM10 services such as Napster-to-Go and Rhapsody].
Video out in X-Fi
Enjoy movies or share images with your family and friends on a large screen, when you connect the ZEN X-Fi2 to a TV (A/V cable available separately) and enjoy your movies in X-Fi!
Expandable memory to provide more media content
Get more songs, videos, and pictures through the built-in microSD card slot. Transfer files easily to enjoy more media content in your player!
RSS feeds download supported
RSS feeds are downloaded in their entirety--including photos--and not just article headlines with a few lines of text. Just sync via the USB connection and download RSS feeds from your computer, then read them later on your ZEN X-Fi2 when you're on the go.
Share your music out loud
With the built-in speaker, share rock ballads or soothing overtures with your friends anytime you want.
High-quality earphones
Customized to block out external noise, the EP-630 in-ear earphones come with the player and offer the listener optimum fit for long periods of audio use. They come with three different ear tip sizes as well.

Love the touch screen, very user friendly.

Volume buttons on the side of the unit seems like a must, but they opted to use the touch screen.

Overall, the Creative Zen X-fi 2 is a very good mp3 player.

I've owned many MP3 players incl. Creative's Muvo, Zev V, and Zen. What drew me to the X-Fi2 was the larger screen, the video out, the RSS, plus the touch interface and speaker somewhat.

Display: Very pretty, 400 X 240. Good quality video and images look sharp and bright.

Audio Quality: I did A/B comparisons between the Zen and the X-Fi2, and the X-Fi2 wins. The top end is smoother, and the bass is tighter and deeper, and the overall sound is more open. They're similar in max volume, but the X-Fi2 sounds better.

X-Fi: I don't use it.

Creative Centrale: Install it, then forget it.

Audio Storage: Album art is a problem. The art has to be "embedded" in the ID3 tag for it to appear, it's possible Windows Media Player automatically does this. This can also be done with an app like "Mp3tag". Which meant going back and doing that to all 350 albums I had on the old Zen. Note that I don't use any services like Rhapsody, or files with DRM, so for me playback itself was fine.

Viewing Photos: Some jpgs don't show up except as "?" marks. Not sure why.

Videos: Nightmare. With the avi or wmv that worked fine on the Zen, the audio would break up or the vids wouldn't be recognized. Creative Central was unreliable and slow, and coverts vids to wmv.

I tried about 6 other converters, and either audio or video was messed up, or just not recognized (XVid, Divx, or wmv). Finally tested Handbrake, and the X-Fi2 was happy playing those XVid files, with very specific settings, about 90% of the time. And when it works, it looks great.

Video Out: Works surprisingly well, but no one will think it's a DVD.

RSS: Run a sync program from the X-Fi2 when it's connected to your PC. Kind of a pain, but it works.

I had high hopes for this player. Creative certainly advertizes it as the ultimate music machine that also plays video. And that is true, up to a certain point.

SPOILER ALERT: The X-Fi2 is not an MP4 player, seems sort of sad for a product of mid 2009. The device will play .avi files, but if you wrap an ffmpeg in an m4v container, it will not work.

1. The hardware is good, not great. The outer casing is slick metal, and can slip out of your fingers very easily. I ordered the leather case as a bumper bra, and at the time of my purchase, there were no 'skin' accessories to enhance the gripping of the X-Fi2. This is a two-handed device, one to grip, one to operate.

2. The Creative Centrale software sucks. There is no other word for it. Don't expect it to do anything useful (XP SP3). Fortuneatly, it is a mass-storage device, and you can drag-n-drop your files onto the X-Fi2 to avoid it.

3. Don't use Creative Centrale to encode video. It will not play reliably. The X-Fi2 has a limited compatibility with video files, so a third-party, one-trick pony application is needed to produce compatible video. Download a program, like HandBrake (free), and you will be able to watch great video on the 3" screen. The key to successfull video, scale the source video down to the X-Fi2's size (400 x 240). Observe perspective, get as close to those values as your source video will scale, but don't force them. keep your quality setting at 80& or higher, and the video will look very close to the source quality. 100% quality gives a great picture on the 3" screen, with all 16 million colors present, and no blocky pixels.

UPDATE: About Handbrake. The ZEN is now long in the tooth, but once in a while I need to dump a new movie on it for a friend.

First of all, I own the Zen Vision: W,the Zen Vision: M ,the Zen Media "Flash" Player 32gb , the Zen X-Fi 32gb player
and NOW the Zen X-Fi 2 32gb player. So I'm am quite familiar with way these players sound,operate, etc.
With the advent of the X-Fi technology there's Nothing out there that can beat this sound. (I own the Zune HD 32gb player too, slick but not as good sound wise).
This latest player takes a little getting use to as far as the touch screen is concerned. It is NOT as sensitive as the Zune HD, But with a little practice it works just fine. Using your finger/thumb nail as a stylus works great! Using the flat end of a finger,not so much (it'll frustrate you).
Like I said, having prior experience with the previous iterations of this player will help immensely.
It beats the hell out the tiny buttons (controls) of the X-Fi.
There is a short learning curve with this device. (as with most device's, including the Zune HD)Well worth the effort as there are many options to tweak to your particular taste. And it's expandable with it's memory card, A BIG plus as you can plug in play any media you have what so ever from a SD micro card.
This is the most versatile MP3 "music" player out there.
It this player perfect ? NO,................ But it's another step in the right direction.
One last observation, The Creative Centrale software STILL Sux !!! Because,
The ripping program STILL fails (just like the previous version) (errors) after only two consecutive rips....................
and you have close the Centrale software program and restart. That's If you're lucky !
If not, you'll have to REBOOT your computer to make the program run properly,..................

BUY/GET/STEAL a stylus, you'll need it !!!
