Simply the best wireless audio on the go
Good things usually come in small packages, and that's definitely the case for the ZEN X-Fi3. Equipped with the aptX™ codec for superior Bluetooth® transmission, as well as X-Fi technology, which restores rich detail and retains high level of clarity for audio tracks, this stylishly-designed player delivers undoubtedly the best wireless audio while you're on the move.
ZEN X-Fi3 supports a dizzying range of audio formats, including FLAC files - for the die-hard lossless audio fans - in addition to other more common audio formats. The player comes with a video output so you can enjoy your movies and photos with family and friends in big-screen comfort. Its Bluetooth wireless connectivity lets you easily connect to compatible stereo Bluetooth speakers and headphones such as the ZiiSound D5x and Creative WP-350.
Following Creative's latest range of MP3 players, this pocket-friendly MP3 player also features responsive touch keys for easy navigation and playback control, as well as a microSD card slot to store additional media. The integrated FM radio lets you keep up with the latest music hits and news updates.
High performance wireless audio
The built-in aptX codec enables superior wireless Bluetooth transmission (that's as good as a wired connection) when ZEN X-Fi3 is used with Bluetooth headphones and speakers with aptX codec support.
Make the hassle of wires a thing of the past
Stream music wirelessly to any compatible stereo Bluetooth-enabled device and enjoy music anywhere. Pair the ZEN X-Fi3 with Creative's range of wireless speakers and headphones for excellent audio quality.
Unbeatable X-Fi performance
You'll never have to suffer through muddy music again with the ZEN X-Fi3! X-Fi Crystalizer intelligently restores lost detail during file compression, letting you enjoy your music in amazing clarity. X-Fi Expand technology virtually expands a conventional left/right earphone stereo source away from your ears, giving you a more acoustically natural sound staging in headphone audio.
Watch movies on the big screen
Enjoy movies or share images with your family and friends, when you connect the ZEN X-Fi3 to a TV via the player's video output (A/V cable sold separately).
Ride the airwaves with FM radio
Be on top of the music scene and get the latest news with the integrated FM radio. Take your pick from the player's 32 customisable station presets to make getting your favourites a breeze.
Enjoy more music and photos with a microSD card slot that lets you add up to 32GB of media in addition to the player's built-in memory.
Navigate the features of the player and control media playback easily with the intuitive touch buttons.
Wide audio support including lossless audio
Enjoy your music even more in FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) format. The player also supports non-protected AAC (.M4A) files from iTunes Plus besides the usual MP3, WMA (DRM9), Audible Format 4 and Audible AAX formats.

It takes about 4 wks of being switched off and on for around 13g of memory to settle down into some sort of sensible library. Until then its a bit slo we at switch on and this slows down the functions too!
After this you can add 2 or 3 albums at a time without any fuss!
In terms of sound quality be prepared to be blown away!!!!!!!!! Even with cheap headphones the sound is so far removed from the iPod its unreal!! I loved my iPods for 10 years but will now happily state - in comparison they have no depth of sound and are tinny!
Then - by far and away the 5star clincher for me - it doesn't die in cold weather! Old iPods used to switch themselves off and fail to restart if I went out for a run with them in my armband at anything below freezing. Now had the zen down to -6 or -7 without a hint of a problem! And the battery lasts seemingly forever!
No it doesn't have the "wheel" to skim through music selections, or do anything other than play music - but for that sound quality, how long the battery lasts the price and the cold temp performance - heck its worth the sacrifice!
And I have absolutely no issue with volume! - plenty loud enough, and through my amp at home (which admittedly is a NAD) - never got even close to 1/4 volume (I like my neighbors!).
I can't fault it now I'm used to it and its "learned my library!!
The first use of the new second device and the screen freeze recurred. It became a regular event and I searched the net for solutions including the Creative site with no joy. My refund is on its way.
This is a badly designed device that has gone backwards from previous ones. The controls of the device are poor. The menu system is worse than before. And its screen and controls freeze. I have wasted much time trying to get this working and have no wish to have a Creative Zen again.
And my old Zen has resurrected itself! Sure, the battery doesn't last more than a few hours. It is fine for my office with a power source.
Fair play to Amazon, they exchanged it for another so I returned it.
This morning I plugged it into the laptop to put more music on it and the thing is dead. Just will not turn on or charge just like the failure of the first one.
Yes, the volume is not great, and the touch controls can be unresponsive but the sound quality is excellent.
But two failures in a row really indicates a poor product.
No more Creative Zen for me. I'm gonna check out what Sony have to offer.
And five stars for Amazon who are going to credit me with the purchase price and check out the product.
The downsides,,,, well the main one for me is that the Bluetooth range is fairly limited, certainly a lot less than my mobile. I can work round it however as it is so small and light, you guessed it, in the shirt pocket it goes! Also the battery life is not as good as suggested by Zen, if you use all the sound enhancers and the bluetooth, I get about 8-10hours on average continuous use before the battery runs out. It's pretty good ,but less than anticipated. One final last niggle is that if you turn it off and then connect the charger, it turns itself back on and tries to connect by Bluetooth to my hearing aids.
In conclusion an excellent music player, better quality music than my iPad or Sony mobile but the niggles above prevent me from giving it 5stars
I just got some Phillips SHB9100's and as a result would like to point out that there is no hiss over the bluetooth link, and since the 'phones come with a cable you can compare them directly between wireless and otherwise and there is pretty much no difference...
Otherwise, 8Gb is a bit tiny for level 5 FLAC's but then it is expandable so that is not really a problem.
To sum up: Small, light, value for money, menus a bit of a pain but sound quality is awesome and Bluetooth works with no troubles :-D
