Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
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, 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 – 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. The app should not be used with other earphones.
The app utilizes the iTunes music library.
DRM protected music is not playable by XTZ Player (or any other 3rd party app).

v1.1 Specific Release Notes
Fixed a couple of app crash events:
- Crash when launching with empty library
- Crash when deleting last Dirac Playlist
- Some rare events when Paid app crashes at launch but not Free app (playlist issue)
Fixed playlist duplication issue at sync
Improved usability of Repeat/Shuffle buttons
Fixed iPad 3rd generation compatibility issue
The app now remembers the playing state between sessions and resumes if possible the next time it is launched. This is particularly useful if you are listening to long audio books or if you have a long playlist you don’t wish to skip through to where you were or start-over.
The remembered playing states include:
- What list and list type (Playlists, Artists, Albums, or Songs) was playing
- What track was playing
- What point in time of the track was playing
- What shuffle state (On/off) and the shuffled list of songs
- What repeat state (Off/one/all)
The shuffle function has been modified to shuffle the whole playing list in advance and not just randomly pick a next track.
- This makes it easier to skip back and forth among the shuffled tracks knowing that what was next will still be next even when going back to the previous track again.
- It also means that all tracks in a list will be played once before you will hear the same track for the second time .
- Toggle the shuffle button off/on to re-shuffle the list.
The repeat function has been modified to allow skipping back beyond the first track to get to the last track, just as easy as skipping past the last track to get to the first.
- Some minor fixes were also made, such as adding support for timestamp view in locked screen mode and updating the desktop icon to iOS 7 Standards.
