CREATIVE SXFI CARRIER - Dolby Atmos® Speaker System Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer and Super X-Fi® Headphone Holography. Creative SXFI CARRIER heralds a new dimension in Dolby Atmos® soundbar technology with built-in Super X-Fi® Headphone Holography to create a new multi-speaker cinema experience on headphones.

The SXFI CARRIER carries on the engineering marvel of the award-winning Sonic Carrier which has been dubbed by industry experts as the “soundbar of the gods”.


Dolby Atmos® Soundbar
10″ Wireless Subwoofer
Super X-Fi® Headphone Holography
Won 3 Best-of CES Awards in 2020

Jointly developed by Creative and Dolby Laboratories, SXFI CARRIER has the same sound signature as the 15.2 Sonic Carrier at less than half the size and at a fraction of the price. Even with a scaled-down size, SXFI CARRIER can transform your living room to provide a full-fledged cinema experience.

When there's a need to enjoy your movies privately at night without disturbing your family or neighbors, put on SXFI THEATER headphones (optional) to enjoy the same cinematic experience as you would on the soundbar.

The SXFI CARRIER is the first-of-its-kind Dolby Atmos® Speaker System (DASS) soundbar, featuring Dolby's new innovative acoustics concept that pushes the performance limits and capability of a compact soundbar to a whole new dimension.

From the soundbar of the gods to the SXFI CARRIER with the same team that worked behind the scenes of our 15-driver Sonic Carrier, we managed to develop a soundbar that is capable of producing the same sound signature as the Sonic Carrier, at less than half the size, and at a fraction of the price.

How the SXFI CARRIER was developed
SXFI CARRIER defies the odds of driving high power output in the most compact form factor possible to deliver powerful audio reproduction without distortion—a feat that is unachievable without expertise, patience, and specially-crafted audio components.

The soundbar features a 7-driver system where each driver in the soundbar is individually driven by its own dedicated DSP-controlled amplifier. The arrangement of these drivers follows closely to a Dolby-designed acoustics concept, each crafted using top-notch, audiophile-grade components to deliver high-resolution audio for the ultimate home cinema experience.

The soundbar is accompanied by the redesigned, compact yet powerful wireless subwoofer to deliver the requisite bass performance that completes a compelling soundbar solution, and that can rival the real cinema experience.

The Dolby-designed acoustics concept wouldn't have been possible without the team's cutting-edge electronics design and audio engineering know-how. Together with Dolby, and after a series of iterative modifications and listening tests to determine the design parameters, the SXFI CARRIER is finally here.

Ever watched a show where its cinematic sound effects were so overwhelming, you couldn't hear what the characters were saying? Increasing the volume makes it worse, because everything gets louder across the board, including the dramatic special effects.

This is resolved on SXFI CARRIER by integrating the custom-designed, low distortion drivers with intelligent dialogue enhancing algorithm to deliver unusually clear, full bodied, and intelligible dialogue. This is then further enhanced by our dialogue processing technology, where the soundbar is purposefully tuned to intelligently detect and enhances vocals and spoken dialogue, making it easy for you to follow the story.

That familiar surround sound experience that you know from the cinema? It's now available, in the comfort of your home. With the personal involvement from Dolby's experts in which Dolby Atmos® surround technology is implemented, the SXFI CARRIER is set to provide you with the ultimate cinematic experience, and for all content that supports Dolby Atmos—even streamed ones like Netflix, Apple TV, and Prime Video.

Dolby Atmos® surround tuning with Dolby's experts
Height and spatial elements are important for a realistic portrayal of the drama and emotional turmoil of a great film.

Dolby Atmos® renders everything—from dialogue, to quiet scenes, to whirlwind action—with astonishing clarity, richness, detail, and depth. Unlike normal surround sound, with Dolby Atmos, sound moves around you in three-dimensional space. It adds an overhead dimension where a new sensation of height immerses you in the action, creating a full audio atmosphere and realistically depicting the objects moving overhead—like a helicopter in a war zone, or a songbird fluttering from tree to tree.

What sets the SXFI CARRIER apart from other Dolby Atmos speakers is the involvement from Dolby acoustics experts since conceptualization.

In accordance to the strict audio directivity guidelines from Dolby, waveguides are created that direct the sound from height speakers in a controlled manner toward the ceiling, and then reflected back down at the viewer to achieve the effects. More importantly, audio sounds like it's coming from outside and above the soundbar as intended, rather than sounding like it's originating from the soundbar itself.

Fitted with a 10” driver in a deceptively small enclosure, the accompanying wireless subwoofer punches way above its weight. You'll catch yourself holding your breath subconsciously as the smooth, yet remarkably powerful bass reverberates through the entire room. The scale and drama that we all know and love from cinemas—made possible by this compact subwoofer with a huge bass.

The SXFI CARRIER's subwoofer produces impressive bass extension, power, and quality to deliver clean, impactful bass that digs deep, without booming or sounding muddy. It's also detailed and precise, without distortion, nor leaving you feeling overwhelmed.

Been binge-watching the entire day and you need to switch over to headphones before the neighbours complain about the noise? If the thought of going back to stereo audio in your headphones is unbearable for you, Super X-Fi is bound to blow your mind.

Super X-Fi Headphone Holography recreates the soundstage of a surround speaker system in headphones, and personalizes it for you with Artificial Intelligence for a natural listening experience. Dolby Atmos cinema experience will be faithfully recreated with Super X-Fi.

On the SXFI CARRIER, Super X-Fi is available through a 3.5 mm headphone jack for any of your headphones, although a Super X-Fi certified one would be preferred. However, for the ultimate audio enjoyment, we strongly recommend using the low-latency wireless Creative SXFI THEATER headphones (optional).

Movies that are played over headphones with Super X-Fi sounds as spatially convincing and believable as they would within a cinema, or a multi-speaker setup, but with the benefit of audio privacy without disturbing your neighbors (and family) even when it's late into the night. Plus, you get the best seat of the house because Super X-Fi puts you right smack in the middle of the audio sweet spot—at all times.


How to Personalize Your Super X-Fi Audio
Each of us hears the world differently—our unique head and ear shapes affect how we perceive sound. Super X-Fi uses computational audio to personalize the headphone experience based on how you hear sound to give you the most optimized and realistic listening experience.

This is done by simply taking photos of your face and ears with your phone, via the SXFI App.

Personalize your Super X-Fi profile through an advanced Head and Ear-Mapping process.

Having full cinema-like audio in your home does not necessarily mean that you have to forgo half of your living space for an expensive surround speaker system.

Plus, SuperWide™ technology expands the soundstage of your stereo content beyond the soundbar's physical size. You'll find that SXFI CARRIER is one of the most compact soundbar systems that belies its size and brings out a full-fledged, cinematic audio experience in your home.

Smaller than the width of most TVs, it is crafted to be stealthy with a small footprint so that your content can take center stage. The SXFI CARRIER is elegant yet minimalistic, and is perfect for any home settings.

From unboxing to listening, the soundbar system can be easily installed within minutes in any home effortlessly, without the unwieldy mess of wires!

And you don't have to be a tech genius to set up the SXFI CARRIER. Simply plug in the HDMI cable between your TV and soundbar, and you'll be enjoying your new home entertainment system in no time. Cinema with all the comfort of home? Checked.

In addition, you can also setup your gaming consoles via the USB-C port, and enjoy the full surround envelopment for a realistic battlefield experience.


Be spoilt for choice with a multitude of connectivity options! The SXFI CARRIER features an extensive array of connections so it is accessible to everyone.

You can now connect various source devices directly to your TV, and connect the HDMI eARC to SXFI CARRIER for lossless audio transmission of multichannel formats without any degradation in sound quality, and control common functions like volume adjustments and input sources directly via the TV remote control. It's fuss-free and clutter-free.

Certain setups will require more HDMI inputs, that is why two state-of-the-art, 8K compatible HDMI 2.1 inputs on the SXFI CARRIER are included. With HDR10, HDR10+ passthrough, and Dolby Vision Compatible, you can enjoy the maximum potential of your entertainment system-rich sound and high-resolution picture quality no matter your settings, even with your newest 8K TV!

Super X-Fi Headphone Holography is available through a 3.5 mm headphone jack for any of your headphones, although a Super X-Fi certified one would be preferred.

For the ultimate Super X-Fi audio enjoyment, using the low-latency wireless Creative SXFI THEATER headphones (optional) by plugging in the SXFI TX wireless audio transmitter (available with SXFI THEATER) to the SXFI-out port is strongly recommended.

Connect to your gaming consoles and other devices to enjoy the same cinematic audio! Supports hi-res audio of up to 24-bit / 96 kHz with 7.1 channel input for the ultimate audio and visual gaming experience.

Music streaming via mobile phones; particularly convenient when you just need some music to set the mood for any occasion.
