iFi Audio ZEN CAN Headphone Amplifier

The iFi Audio ZEN CAN is your gateway to an affordable audio upgrade, delivering enhanced clarity and detail to your wired headphones.

Maximize Your Headphones' Potential

With up to 52 times more power than your smartphone or laptop's output, the ZEN CAN breathes life into your headphones. Its Class A amplifier not only boosts headphone power and dynamics but also ensures a beautifully smooth and detailed sound. Packed with premium components, including TDK Class 1 ceramic capacitors and MELF resistors, the ZEN CAN prioritizes sound quality above all else.

Balanced Output for Dynamic Sound

The ZEN CAN offers dedicated outputs that provide your headphones with a dynamic and punchy sound. You can choose between balanced and unbalanced outputs, allowing higher-spec headphones with balanced inputs to truly shine.

Enhance the Bass

The switchable XBass feature enhances bass response using passive and active components. Ideal for headphones with lighter bass, the XBass setting adds extra bass while preserving the overall sound quality.

Precise Headphone Pairing with Selectable Gain

Featuring four stages of gain control, the ZEN CAN seamlessly matches your headphones. Choosing the right gain not only maximizes volume potential but also reduces distortion and optimizes volume control sensitivity.

Versatile Trio of Inputs

With three input options, the ZEN CAN isn't limited to just your laptop. Connect via 3.5mm, RCA phono, or 4.4mm balanced inputs to interface with your computer, home hi-fi system, studio mixer, or other sources.

Professional-Grade Pre-Amp Capability

The ZEN CAN's versatility extends beyond headphones. Its rear-mounted, 4.4mm balanced output allows you to use it as a pre-amplifier with high-end active speakers or home hi-fi setups. Connect to your power amplifier or active speakers for precise volume control and access to all three inputs.

  • Generic 5V Power Supply: The package includes a 5V power supply for your convenience.
  • High-Quality Output Buffer: Equipped with a Class A discrete output buffer derived from the flagship Pro iCAN, utilizing the Op-Amp OV2637A, ensuring minimal distortion and noise for exceptional audio performance.
  • FET Input for Reduced Load: The FET input design eliminates loading on the volume control, resulting in low distortion and noise, enhancing the overall audio quality.
  • SE Inputs for Class A Operation: The SE inputs with a 1M Ohm impedance guarantee that the source remains in Class A operation, optimizing audio performance.
  • Adjustable Amplifier Gain: With four selectable gain steps at +6dB, the output amplifier accommodates various headphones, allowing for perfect matching with your preferred headphone model.
  • XBass® Bass Correction: The XBass® analogue bass correction system addresses the bass response limitations of headphones or speakers, ensuring a more complete and satisfying audio experience.
  • Immersive 3D Holographic® Sound: iFi's 3D Holographic® dual-analogue matrices create an "Out of Head" listening experience, placing the artist in the room with you rather than confined inside your head, delivering a truly immersive and lifelike soundstage.
