    Could the European headfiers do me a favor and let me know when the Super XFi app is available in Europe.
    On all Android devices I could borrow it was shown in the Google play store but when you tried to click on it, it said „Your device is not compatible with this version“ translated from the German original „Dein Gerät ist nicht mit dieser Version kompatibel.“ So I guess this means that the app is not available for Europe so far.
    If something changes, please let me know. Thank you!!!

    one way is to use VPN to "move" your phone to USA or Singapore so that playstore allows the download. Playstore has many free VPN, just install and run one of the popular VPN will do.

    can you use that with in ears and earbuds?

    Yes I have used with Bose SportSound and iSine20. It expands the soundstage dramatically and less blaring into your brain and less ear fatigue. Out of your head effect can be less pronounced.

    When are they going to release the app to the rest of the world. ... it's working what's the problem with other countries than USA and Singapore...

    "enough" is relative. imo in traditional headphone speakers the ILD is too much and definitely unnatural. using the bohemian rhapsody intro as an example, there is no way a live show would sound like the way traditional headphones sound. the words are distinctly left ear and right ear. i find this annoying. probably some people really like it and i am sure compared to mono it is "cool." but is definitely artificial sounding. with SXFI there is directional positioning but it is more subtle and it does not overwhelm you like in traditional stereo. if you listen closely you will hear that freddy mercury is singing in your left ear, but since the sound is projected in front of you and not in your head, it is not so obvious. the "galileo, galileo" part comes out very strongly upper left and upper right with SXFI. whether this is "not enough" is up to the preference of each listener but it is definitely more natural.

    btw i have found that configuring your PC to play in stereo mode yields the best out of your head sound. it may depend on how the sound is mixed but i have found stereo to yield the best results.

    This I do not understand. Stereo headphones are clearly artificial with their left right left right sound and the in-the-center-of-your-skull sound image, not to mention the comparable lack of depth and richness. Perhaps you are just accustomed to headphone sound vs a live show. If SXFI is artificial than traditional stereo must be totally awful to listen to.

    I found what I'm noticing: lossy artifacts. With each channel alone, I don't notice anything, but with everything mixed I notice some artifacts in the high treble. Li / Lc and Ri / Rc sound fine, but Li + Rc sounds off. With the SXFi processing off I don't hear anything as noticeable (indeed the lossy version is almost transparent). So something about adding in the contra response is leading to this, but hard to say which domain is the cause. Not sure if it's worth futzing with over just encoding these kinds of tracks with a little more bit rate.

    Asked the Creative team if there is a way to use the Super XFi in Germany while I bought it in Singapore. Here is there answer:
