iFi Audio Zen Can, glue for your headphones

The iFi Audio Zen Can is the new headphone amplifier from iFi.

With balanced output, twice the power of amplifiers in its range, and a very special design, this Zen Can comes straight to conquer the most audiophiles.

Turn up the volume

Laptops and smartphones, have a really low power output of <1.0v.

With the iFi Audio Zen Can, you'll plug in your headphones and feel a power boost 52 times greater than other amplifiers in its range.

Made to excite

The ZEN CAN has a discrete Class A balanced circuit, present in iFi audio's flagship Pro iCan. With 15.1v @ 300 Ohms impedance, you will be able to drive the most demanding headphones.

  • Flagship Pro iCAN Class A discrete output buffer using Op-Amp (OV2637A).
  • FET input avoids load volume control: low distortion/noise
  • Low impedance feedback circuit improves circuit performance without resistance noise
  • Four-step output amplifier gain at + 6dB perfect for headphone matching

Put yourself in the place of your music

The iFi Audio Zen Can features special 3D sound circuitry:

  • Stereo image that is actually outside your head, in front with height, width and depth
  • No coloration or loss of resolution
  • All analog circuitry (i.e., no costly and complex digital signal manipulation)

XBass adjustment

Behind XBass is our active equalization circuitry that meets a common complaint about headphones, the lack of bass.

Open back headphones in particular, allow all frequencies to filter freely through the back instead of trapping them and redirecting them to your ears.

XBass equalization is a much more elegant solution for bass correction than elsewhere. It is composed of both active and passive components and its frequency response curve corrects your low-end response problems with precision.

Premium components

The basis of balanced and active equalization circuits are:

  • Panasonic ECPU capacitors
  • TDK C0G (Class 1) ceramic capacitors.
  • Operational amplifiers iFi / AMR 'OV' 'Operationsverstärker' series.
  • MELF resistors.
  • Texas Instruments low noise integrated circuits, muRata capacitors and Tokyo Cosmos Electric Co. (TOCOS) multitrack potentiometer, with exceptional channel matching even at low volume.
