Creative SXFi Carrier Review
Creative SXFI Carrier features a nice sounding stereo with sub woofers, but what makes the SXFi stand out from other audio systems is its excellent audio quality, especially when comparing it to other brands and models of similar products. In this review I am going to give you an objective look at the Creative SXFI Carrier and see if it lives up to its claims. To get a good idea of how it fares, let’s take a look at its specs:
The most significant thing we can look at when looking at the Creative SXFI Carrier features is its optical-in earphone port. This port allows users to connect to their HDTV using wireless headphones or ear buds. The earphones are not very loud but do have a decent sound quality. Compared to other brands of audio speakers and head-phones, the sound quality is quite pleasant.
A second feature that we can look at when talking about the Creative SXFI Carrier is its wall mounting options. One of the main features of this audio system is the fact that it does not require any type of external soundbar, although you can add one later on if you wish. It is a great design as no wires are needed to get the sound coming through your television.
Other things that the Creative SXFI Carrier features include a microphone input, headphone output, and remote control with LCD. The headphone output allows you to use wireless headphones for hands-free communication while watching your favorite TV shows or movies. If you use the remote control, you can also use it to start/pause your multimedia player like your home theatre system. In the wall-mounting option, there are wall-mounted components that you can mount on the wall in order to provide a stable media experience. These Creative SxFi Carrier products are perfect for apartments, as they do not occupy a lot of space, making them perfect for home entertainment systems as well as computer back-rooms.
A feature that is worth mentioning about the Creative SXFI Carrier is the Bluetooth pairing. When you pair your audio system with your mobile phones via Bluetooth, you are able to stream music and videos wirelessly from your mobile phone to your TV. The Bluetooth pairing feature is very easy to use as all you need to do is to connect the Creative SxFi Carrier to the Bluetooth enabled device and the connection is ready to go. You can connect up to five devices at the same time.
The Creative SXFi Carrier has a few drawbacks as far as sound quality is concerned. Since it does not have an optical audio input or output, the sound quality is a little on the dull side. However, if you want to connect surround sound system to your Creative SXFi Carrier, you can always purchase a home theater set top box that has optical audio input and output. Sound quality is not something that the fi series is renowned for. That being said, the sound is brilliant when watching videos and movies with Bluetooth headsets connected to Creative SxFi headsets. It is almost like having your own personal surround sound system installed in your home.
One of the most innovative features of the Creative SxFi Carrier is ir weatherproof soundbar mode selection. With this, you are able to choose the type of sound that you want. For example, if you would like to listen to soft music or soothing sounds, you can turn off the soundbar mode. When you are inside your house or room, you are still able to hear the sound from the outdoors. When you are traveling with your Creative SXFi Carrier, you are still able to receive the soothing sound through the same wireless connection that you used with your Creative SxFi headphones or earbud headphones.
The Creative SBXFi Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones offers you a truly wireless connection that will give you hands-free freedom to roam around your room or home while still enjoying high-quality sound. This is a great feature to have especially if you want to mingle with friends and family in a party setting. The Creative SBXFi Carrier is also capable of connecting to your computer via the USB port. It comes with its own Creative Soundbar that will allow you to enjoy music and movies straight from your home entertainment device. You are now given the freedom to roam around without the fear of missing a call from your friends because you have turned your Creative SxFi into a wireless home entertainment system.
