Fast forward to May 2011, Creative is ready to introduce its new generation of audio processor - the Sound Core3D (also known as the SB-Axx1 chip). The low power, "multi-core" processor manages to merge both the audio and voice components of the chip giving it an advantage in size. The new SB-Axx1 chip is so small (as compared to the X-Fi chip) that Creative has to dress it up with a fake heatsink to make it look better on the product.
With a smaller audio processor that consumes less power, for the very first time, Creative was able to implement real hardware acceleration with its portable products. We have already seen this being implemented in the Recon3D USB sound card, Sound BlasterAxx series of portable speakers and more recently, the Sound Blaster EVO series of headsets.
Apple App Store or Google Play. With the app, you can make full use of the SBX Pro Studio (an advance version of the late THX TruStudio) and CrystalVoice settings (for voice calls). In the app is also a music player and alarm option which is really just a good to have.
Here's a comparison chart on the 4 variations of the EVO headsets
We have yet to see any reviews on the Sound Blaster EVO series yet, but personally I would think it is pretty promising. We can't wait to get our hands on these, in the meantime, enjoy this demo video of the Sound Blaster EVO ZxR!
