Sure you are on the right site. Cause you sound just like Apple fan boy. "If it looks good it must sound good."
Cowon D2 or D2+ completely outshines the X-FI2 when it comes to sound quality. BBE and the SQ really work well with any headphone configuration. Also the Wolfson chip has superior sound reproduction.
The 16 million colors does make a difference. The videos are detailed and easy to view. Screen is kinda small but since the video playback is at 30 fps, the reproduction is good.
Also I would rather use a full sized SDHC than the MicroSDHC. For one harder to lose and secondly the full sized cards are cheaper.
Really the only cool thing about the Creative X-FI and X-FI2 series is the wifi capabilities.
