    Meh

    I have a gsx1000 and creative g5.

    I'll pass on this thing.

    No way it can drive my awesome planar magnetic phones

    As far as driving headphones, I believe the SXFI is more capable than the GSX1000.

    Can you please find a better link for that? It doesn't work. It just goes to the front main page. And the search isn't working either. Can't find anything related to Creative or X-fi

    Odd. The link Archaea posted doesn't work on my computer (using Firefox), but does on my phone (Chrome). It might be a mobile link he posted.

    Just ordered mine as well. Yay Canada. Not bad that they're throwing in are pair of headphones as well. I needed a new portable pair.

    Do you think these headphones are pretty decent? Would they be comparable to like a $50 pair of headphones?

    A thread on reddit acted like these are rebranded headphones that are usually recommended for $80-$100.

    I’m a bit of a headphone snob, and prefer open ear style cans, but I didn’t like them.

    For < $50 you can do better IMO, but these are probably worth $50

    Koss Porta-Pros come to mind as a best value if you can stand the looks and don’t mind the style — they are a great value and sound exceptional for the price. My dad has a set and the sound is impressive.

    I loved the Phillips shp9500 for the money - but they are discontinued and shot up nealry quadruple in price on the used market.
