    Blinding Bluetooth

    The xCAN delivers CD-Quality Bluetooth via AAC, aptX and aptX LL with added iFi magic. Stream wirelessly from your smartphone. Bluetooth from your TV to the xCAN. No need for wires. Just plug your headphones into the xCAN at your side. Give soundtracks extra energy. Add oomph to your gaming! Hear the whoosh of an arrow or the full throttle of F1 car in all their glory.

    Wicked wiring

    Connect via analogue 2.5/3.5 connection. iFi’s exclusive S-Balanced technology means that you gain the advantages of a balanced connection even when using an unbalanced one. On headphones this means lower distortion, less interference and less crosstalk. And it enables you to take advantage of the growing number of balanced sources, such as high-end DAPs.

    The xCAN is a dual-mono headphone amplifier with a maximum power output of 1000mW per channel. It will happily drive your favourite headphones. And iFi added signature sonic extras as well. 3D+® opens up your music to give you the spaciousness of a live-concert atmosphere. The XBass Ⅱ® analogue bass correction system corrects headphone/speaker bass response to deliver a more natural sound to the midrange frequencies.

    Clever. Curvy.

    The xCAN smart battery provides up to 18 hours of playback time (analogue) or 12 hours (Bluetooth) depending on your choice of headphones. That’s one very long train journey! And finally, check out the curvy chassis and lush LEDs. The xCAN is one lovely lady.
