The Creative Super SXFI AIR headphones are something special and probably the best gaming headphones to date I have reviewed not only in respect to gaming but these deliver for personal use as well as gaming delivering sound that puts you right in the centre giving you a real immersive feeling no matter what you have these connected too.

Super X-Fi technology uses computational audio to recreate the listening experience of a high-end multi-speaker system in a professional studio, and delivers the same experience in headphones.

On setting up you will need to scan your ears and face via the app,there is two apps in fact and you then have a profile created,not only this you can customise the RGB lighting on both cups to your taste too which gives them an additional effect given you will not see it when wearing but they look cool regardless.

When it comes to comfort these also shine here and cover the ears giving you extra noise cancelling without doing anything in the app to enhance the experience. They make a great seal and fit nicely over the ears and can be worn for long periods of time and not feeling uncomfortable in doing so after my hours of testing.

On the headphones we have a touch sensitive area where you swipe which lets you control the music by skipping tracks,control the volume calls and you also can access your voice assistant too so these double as a gaming headset and a personal one too and they do not disappoint here at all I was really impressed with how good these are at the price they command.

On the left side we have a Micro SD card slot which allows you to carry music on the go which is a neat idea so you are not tied to your smartphone USB-C ports 3.5mm socket and source button alongside the Super X-Fi button which makes the punch when turned on change the headset completely ,you also have your little mic via a little stump if you will which is much better than a retractable one or fixed. On the right side there is no buttons so it all happens on one side which I like and is not confusing.

Comfort is also excellent here even for long term usage the cups are deep and give really good isolation off the bat without doing a thing then you have two apps to choose from to enhance the experience, no lag latency noted whilst gaming or listening to music and the controls work a treat once you get the thumb memory going. Overall for gaming these are the best I have tested yet but we have another pair to check out too so stay tuned for that review and see the video below for more. I do so gaming but not much but however these really drop you into the centre of the game and as for using as a pair of standalone headphones they are really really good and better than I expected and are up there with my top 5 pairs of headphones right now which is saying alot.

Creative sent us these to review with no compensation paid nor copy approval and did not influence my findings and are seeing this review the same time as you..
