Super X-Fi® Hits the High Notes at CES 2019

Creative Wins 4 Awards from Prominent Consumer Electronics Media for Ground-breaking Headphone Holography

LAS VEGAS - 9 January 2019 - Creative Technology has emerged as a runaway winner only one and a half days into CES 2019, having been presented with multiple best-of-show awards today from the world's leading consumer electronics media for its ‘talk of the town' Super X-Fi Headphone Holography.

These awards are:

  • AVS Forum ‘Best of CES 2019'
  • TechRadar Awards 2019 ‘CES Top Pick'
  • Overclock ‘Best of CES 2019'
  • ‘SoundGuys Best of CES Award'

AVS Forum, the world's largest audio video enthusiast forum site, had already awarded Super X-Fi the ‘Best of CES 2018' when it was previewed in its prototype form last year. With the commercially-ready product range launched worldwide this week, Creative made it two in a row with the ‘Best of CES 2019' award from the same forum. This latest award is for the up and coming Super X-Fi products SXFI THEATER and SXFI TV, a low-latency wireless solution aimed at the TV market.

And the accolades did not stop there for Super X-Fi - it was awarded ‘Best of CES 2019' by prominent audio and tech news site Overclock, named ‘CES Top Pick' by the largest UK-based consumer tech site TechRadar, and also snagged a ‘Best of CES' award from SoundGuys, another leading US online publication known as the voice for consumer audio users.

Hundreds of media and industry partners have attended the demo sessions held by Creative, and have been blown away by the magic of Super X-Fi headphone holography.

“We are very ecstatic to have been awarded top honors for Super X-Fi by the ‘authority figures' in the consumer electronics media. Super X-Fi has also received overwhelmingly positive response from the media and partners who have experienced it. The buzz created has virtually made Super X-Fi the talk of the town at CES. All these further strengthen Super X-Fi's standing as the next audio revolution”, said Sim Wong Hoo, CEO of Creative Technology.

The Creative showcase suite at CES 2019 is located at The Venetian, Meeting Rooms, Bassano 2701 to 2703, from January 8-11, 2019.
