Our Price £189.00 RRP £199.00 Save: £10.00
The iFi Audio Zen Can Headphone Amplifier delivers ample power to drive any headphones, with fully balanced circuitry. With the 3D Space and XBass filters, always get the best sound from your headphones, wholly in the analogue domain.

The iFi Zen Can headphone amp sets out to solve a modern day problem. Often, laptops and smartphones have a really low power output of <1.0v and on a good set of headphones you’re always running out of juice. You never get to really hear what they can do. Use a laptop, phone or DAC to feed your music to the ZEN CAN and connect your headphones. Pumping out 52x more power, now you’ll hear what you have been missing.

The ZEN CAN has trickle-down Class A discrete balanced circuitry from iFi audio’s flagship Pro iCAN. With 15.1v @300 Ohms on tap, it has serious power that will make even difficult-to-drive headphones thump to the beat. A FET input avoids loading volume control for low distortion/noise, while SE inputs (1M Ohm) ensures loading of the source is always in Class A operation.

The output amplifier features gain settings of four steps in +6dB, perfect for headphone matching with any pair for the right volume level.

Audio recordings are made for speakers and when played back on headphones, the sound is always driving you nuts by being only in your head. The 3D special sound circuit solves this by reproducing the stereo image that is truly out of your head, in front with height, width & depth. All analogue circuitry (i.e. without costly and complex digital signal manipulation) retains the purity of the signal at all stages.

The iFi Zen Can features XBass EQ, to subtly boost the low end with can often be lacking in many headphones. XBass is an active EQ circuit creates an analogue bass correction system to compensate for missing bass response.

Open-back headphones in particular, let all frequencies (especially those precious bass frequencies that the drivers generate so little of) leak freely out of the back instead of trapping and redirecting them back to your ears.

XBass equalisation is a much more elegant solution to bass correction than seen elsewhere. It consists of active and passive components and its frequency response curve corrects their low-end response problems with precision.
