Creative releases two new portable media players - ZEN X-Fi Style...

Creative has released the ZEN X-Fi Style and Creative ZEN Style in India today, aiming to deliver more affordable portable media players in the market.

The new PMPs have apparently been “enhanced with new designer looks that exude style that is both trendy and functional”. The products have apparently been launched keeping in mind Creative’s upcoming Pure Audio Campaign for high-performance speakers and premium noise isolation earphones.

Creative ZEN X\-Fi Style

The Creative ZEN X-Fi Style provides all the functions of a basic media player, and also sports X-Fi technology in addition, such as the Crystallizer and Expand features. Crystallizer attempts to restore lost details to the music, while Expand provides “natural sound staging.” Other features of the player include:

  • Bright 2.4-inch TFT display
  • X-Fi technology for crystal clear music
  • Video-out in X-Fi audio quality
  • Lossless audio support (FLAC)

  • 16GB - Rs. 8,999

Creative ZEN Style Series

The Creative ZEN Style Series is the more affordable of the two, and doesn’t feature X-Fi technology. However, they aim to provide all the features that users want in a basic portable media player, “with unmatched digital music playback.” The Creative ZEN Style Series of PMPs comprises the Creative ZEN Style 100 and Creative ZEN Style 300, and they’re exactly the same, except that the Creative ZEN Style 300 has a built-in speaker and FM radio in addition. Other features include:
