Creative X-Fi Xmod User Manual: Connecting Devices
Against Doesn’t stand out from headphones enough. The real gem of this product, however, is the X-Fi Crystaliser mode. So what’s the catch? Adjustments are crwative using the large silver knob in the centre of the unit; allowing you to control the intensity of the effects and volume. Our main complaint with the design is its reliance on external power.

Post a Comment Comment. While the audio does have craetive slightly manufactured sound to it, it’s nonetheless impressive. We’ve seen other attempts at this, but the Xmod really stands out for one reason – it ceeative no drivers, no power supply and it even has its own carry pack. The only issue is it won’t run without external power.
Close all applications that are currently running. After upgrading the firmware, disconnect and reconnect your Xmod. It’s powered by USB, and it defaults as your sound card once it’s plugged into a computer–no driver is required. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. To be completely fair however, Creative makes no explicit promotion of this capability anywhere on the packaging, so it’s unlikely to be a major selling point anyway.

The Xmod’s rubber feet keep it xmo place on your desktop where the attractive unit fits right in. MP3s do sound better The Crystalizer upconverts music to bit audio and fills in the missing gaps in lower and higher frequencies.

The portable form factor, combined with the cheap price make this an ideal solution for quality audio on a budget. We noticed deeper bass and more prominent highs.
The design is Apple-rivalling in its straightforward elegance. What we really want is all-singing, all-dancing multichannel surround sound, preferably with a digital out as well. The features, CMSS 3D and the Crystalizer, each have their own switches and are user-tweakable, though they both default at 50 percent.
Creative Xmod review – TechSpot
xmor We were a little skeptical at first, concerned it would simply increase the range on certain sounds, but a few seconds of comparative listening quickly turned us into believers. Creative has lifted the X-Fi features related to music from its SoundBlaster cards and packed them into the Xmod.
Don’t show this again. You simply adjust the effects level by rotating the knob.
