When it comes to music everyone has their own taste, but since I’m pretty picky and I have nothing to complain about the already excellent sound quality with crystallizer on, and very good build quality, and it is just the device I needed.

The crystallizer effect on XMOD actually sounds good. Product information Product Dimensions 7 x 3 x 9 inches Item Weight 1. Our main complaint with the design is its reliance on external power. In addition to the headphone and USB jacks, the Xmod has both line-in and line-out, meaning it could be used as a portable headphone amplifier for iPods and other digital music players. Creative’s Xmod is an interesting little product that manages to bring Creative’s patented X-Fi sound processor into a portable form factor.

This palm-size, slick-looking device is designed to improve the quality of MP3s and other compressed audio, as well as audio CDs. X-Fi enhances highs and lows, giving new clarity to your music.

While the effect is effective, it’s the aptly named Crystalizer that gives the Xmod its street cred. Where a PC powers it directly through the mini USB port, a line-in or headphone connection offers no power input.

Music definitely sounds more vibrant and has more energy to it. Combined with features we are used to see on the X-Fi series of soundcards such as the X-Fi Crystallizer and CMSS-3D support, is this chocolate bar-sized portable device really worth considering?

You cannnot take a lossily compressed mp3 file and add back what’s missing to even approach much less exceed the sound that existed in the original studio. I never believed their marketing or expected this to be a audiophile level equipment before purchase.

This item is not eligible for international shipping. MP3s do sound better The Crystalizer upconverts music to bit audio and fills in the missing gaps in lower and higher frequencies.

The real gem of this product, however, is the Xmpd Crystaliser mode. After upgrading the firmware, disconnect and reconnect your Xmod.

Only then can we can turn our backs on the desktop for good. The Xmod is a brilliant product. The mid-range remains unchanged for the cmod part, although it seems a little richer, and detail remains about the same whether the Crystaliser is on or off. The Xmod is in no way worth the suggested retail price. Don’t see what you’re looking for?
