Creative Zen Hybrid: Over-ear headphones with ANC presented

With the Creative Zen Hybrid, Creative Labs has introduced an exciting and chic over-ear headphone with active noise cancellation, which is strongly reminiscent of the Bose QuietComfort 45 (our review) in terms of design, but comes up with a few interesting unique selling points.

Creative Zen Hybrid in detail

The new Creative Zen Hybrid offers pretty much everything you could hope for in an ANC headphone. The manufacturer is particularly proud of its hybrid Active Noise Cancellation, which is supposed to be able to block out up to 95 percent of all ambient noise with the feedforward and feedback microphones on each earcup. An additional noise-canceling microphone improves voice clarity during calls.

Of course, there’s also a corresponding ambient mode that adds extra emphasis to ambient sounds and voices. For the acoustics in the Zen Hybrid, 40 mm neodymium drivers are used, which were “expertly tuned” by Creative’s engineers. The manufacturer does not provide any concrete details, but the Zen Hybrid is supposed to be characterized by a warm sound characteristic with precise basses as well as crisp, clear highs.

In typical manufacturer fashion, the ANC headphones are SXFI-ready and can realize holographic sound via the corresponding app thanks to Super X-Fi technology. Due to its slim and lightweight design, the foldable earphones with 90-degree retractable ear cups are said to mark an ideal companion when traveling and can be transported in a space-saving manner.

Price and Availability

The Creative Zen Hybrid will be available in stores on June 08, 2022 at an MSRP of €98.99. To celebrate the launch on June 8, 2022, Creative is giving away 100 units as part of an exclusive sweepstakes for fans.
