Laptops and smartphones have a really low power output. 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.
Nitro for your headphones.
The ZEN CAN has trickle-down Class A discrete balanced circuitry from iFi audio’s US$1,699 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.
Audio recordings are made to be listened to via speakers. When played back on headphones, the sound feels limited to being ‘inside your head’. It does not have the spaciousness it was meant to have. iFi Audio's 3D special sound circuit solves this. Stereo image that is truly out of your head, in front with height, width and depth without colouration or loss of resolution.
Behind XBass is our active EQ circuit which meets a common gripe with headphones head-on, a lack of bass. 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.
Underpinning the Balanced and Active EQ circuitry are Panasonic ECPU capacitors TDK C0G (Class 1) ceramic capacitors, iFi/AMR ‘OV’ ‘Operationsverstärker’ series op-amps MELF resistors and Texas Instruments low-noise ICs. Also, muRata capacitors and Tokyo Cosmos Electric Company multi-track potentiometer, with exceptional channel matching.
