The ZEN Micro is the first product to feature the LibertyLink LL888 chipset, enclosed in the product belt clip. Future products across several different Creative product lines can also deliver the same wireless audio playback experience. The key difference for the listener using Creative products with the LibertyLink LL888 chipset in Aura's unique, patented magnetic induction communications technology for stereo audio. This technology provides a superior experience over the Bluetooth solutions for several reasons, including:
With Aura technology, users enjoy the freedom from headphone wires that catch on a jacket or bag, within a small space of less than six feet surrounding the listener. By confining the space for wireless transmission, the Aura technology prevents interference with other wireless solutions or other users of the same technology in confined spaces.
Creative will demonstrate the ZEN Micro featuring the Aura LibertyLink LL888 wireless technology from Thursday, January 6 through Sunday, January 9 at CES. More information on ZEN MicroMP3 player accessories will be posted in coming months to www.creative.com
