If you didn't like the sound produced by the "ZEN"

I'm not sure you will like any Creative player made after the Vision:M & Vision:W & their newer stuff...

Basically all Creative players after & since "ZEN" use the Sigmatel SoC "STMP 37xx" series (XFi, XFi2, Style XFi etc...)

Vision:M & Vision:W use the Texas Instruments SoC.

I've owned "ZEN" "Zen X-Fi2"...

I also have a Vision:M & Vision:W.

In my opinion the sound of the "ZEN" isn't as bassy as Vision:M....but in terms of treble & beats the pants off the Vision:M

Then again I don't have high end IEM's just your Senn's CX-300, EP-630, SoundMagic PL-30's.

With all of them...ZEN sounded much better than the Vision:M...though it wasn't as loud...but I like my ear's so I don't push it that much lol.


ZEN sounds exactly the same as the X-Fi2 on stock.

If you turn on the Crystaliser in increases the treble rebound basically...if that's how you put it.

So if your more into Bass....don't look at Creative anymore...try something else eg. Samsung.

Just my thoughts.
