Hahaha ;D… No need to bet, it’s guaranteed! Cheap knock-offs from the likes of Xiaomi, Huawei etc, won’t work as well, but they’ll flood the market anyway and the masses won’t know or won’t care about the difference.

I have to wonder though, if Creative themselves are “leveraging” on someone else’s IPR ;D

I have heard the superxfi demo and the results are pretty impressive. The placement of sound sources in a 360 degree soundstage is about as precise and tangible compared to the 8 speaker elac setup in their showroom. The only difference might be that the headphones lack abit of visceral impact compared to the subwoofer enhanced speaker setup.

This capability for just the price of a pair of headphones or amp is very attractive. I would certainly buy one when it's out.

Imagine a future when home theatre and music listening is not limited to any sweet spot.

What remains is just the final execution and time to market. Creative needs to get the product out to market before the Chinese companies jump in at a lower price point.

If they can quickly integrate this into their entire product lineup, it can definitely be a new revival for the company as this is a killer feature that extends the appeal of any headphone amp, dac, soundcard or portable media player.

for those of you who have actually tried the product, how was the dongle connected to the AVR/ Blu Ray player to demonstrate a movie soundtrack multi channel sound over the headphones?

Creative is definitely NOT selling this dongle just to be connected to your mobile phone so that you can "enhance" your music files from stereo to surround sound effect right?

It's designed to be dongle that accepts only a USB output for now. So I guess the initial target is just mobile users.

Imagine a surround processor/DAC using this technology that can connect to multiple headphones at once through bluetooth.:)

I've owned the EMU Teak before - I got the massdrop edition. These cans are quite good. I even got a chance to meet the designer @ Can Jam 2017. really nice guy :) I eventually had to sell them away when I upgraded to the Fostex TH900 mkII. for those of you who like that type of sound sig, you can't go wrong with EMU Teak.
