Key Features of the Creative ZEN X-Fi3

Creative claims that the built-in apt-X codec allows users to enjoy wireless Bluetooth music transmission that sounds as good as a wired connection when Creative ZEN X-Fi3 is used with all compatible stereo Bluetooth devices.
- With X-Fi Crystalizer, users will experience their digital music with lost details restored.
- X-Fi Expand moves a conventional left/right earphone stereo source away from a user's ears, virtually expanding it for an audio experience with a realistic depth of field. U
- Creative ZEN X-Fi3 allows users to enjoy their music even in lossless audio formats (FLAC files) besides accessing all their content and music in various formats such as MP3, WMA and Audible 4. In addition, the player also supports iTunes Plus - also known as unprotected AAC (.m4a)
- Users can add up to 32GB of music on top of the player's built-in memory
