XTZ Player is an easy-to-use music player based on the advanced Dirac HD Sound® technology that genuinely improves the sound from your XTZ EarPhone-12, Earphone Sports and Headphone Divine.

Listen to music from your iTunes library with improved sound quality. The app is for everyone that wants better sound; no technical know-how is needed. Under the hood however, it uses technology from sound research firm Dirac normally used in some of the world’s best hifi, studio and cinema sound systems. Dirac licenses similar technology to companies such as Rolls Royce, Bentley, BMW, and Datasat Digital Entertainment.

Due to physical constraints, it is impossible to design a perfect earphone solely with hardware components. XTZ and Dirac have made precise acoustic measurements of the XTZ EarPhone-12, Earphone Sports and Headphone Divine, allowing a tailored digital software processor based on the Dirac HD Sound technology. The processor has then been fitted into an easy-to-use iPhone app.

Like a pair of glasses improves the perception of poor eyesight, this technology improves and corrects the sound, so that it becomes cleaner and closer to a perfectly sound reproduction. It has nothing to do with sound effects or graphic equalizers used in other apps.


- GENUINE SOUND IMPROVEMENT: This is no sound effect, but instead tailored to control the acoustic properties of the XTZ EarPhone-12, Earphone Sports and Headphone Divine – the only way to achieve a genuine improvement that causes less listening fatigue.

- EASY-TO-USE: No complicated settings.

- USUAL SIMPLE FUNCTIONALITY: Uses the simple functionality that you are accustomed to with your iPhone, while the optimization runs in the background.

- SOUND QUALITY: Natural sound with increased clarity in music and voices. Deepens the bass, removes resonances and acoustic problems related to sound reproduction.

- COST EFFICIENT: Very cost efficient and green alternative to buying expensive headphones.


The sound improvement is tailored for the XTZ Earphone-12, Earphone Sports and Headphone Divine. The app should not be used with other earphones (The sound quality will be worse than without DSP).

The app integrates with the iTunes music library.

DRM protected music is not playable by XTZ Player (or any other 3rd party app).

Ratings and Reviews

Buggy, but sounds great

Disapointed in wesnoth

Makes the XTZ Divine headphones perform like $400 headphones. Only complaints are #1 only works with songs on your phone (not with streaming video or music), #2 there are still many bugs (songs sometimes start 1/2 way through, program stops working and periodically has to be deleted and re-installed, etc), and #3 the interface is unattractive and overly complicated.

Too many bugs.


App crashes often. There is weird silent area in the end of each track. Can’t adjust volume from the touch interface. And more small problems. I am disappointed with XTZ’s Divine headphones and its app which were funded on Kickstarter. I have burned in the Divine headphones for 10 hours. But its high tone is still too harsh for me. The efficient of DSP is few. I think it is better to buy branded Bluetooth headphones than buying this strange one.

This app would probably make my divines sound so much better if I could actually use the app without it crashing every time I open it!
