The xCAN simply makes your music sound better, whether you are listening via earbuds at home or chilling with tunes on the go.

The last word in portable amplifiers

The xCAN is a portable amplifier above all else and is for anyone who wants to squeeze every last drop of performance out of their expensive headphones. Using a high-end DAP that has an adequate onboard DAC but lacks power? Happy with your existing source but need more juice?

Just add the xCAN to drive bigger and better headphones and boost your tunes.

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 an F1 car in all their glory.

Wicked wiring

Connect via analog 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.

A pure powerhouse

The xCAN is a dual-mono headphone amplifier with 1000mW of power per channel. It will happily drive your favorite headphones. And we added our signature sonic extras as well.

The XBass Ⅱ® analog 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 (analog) 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.

The unit boasts a dual-mono headphone amplifier with 1000mW of power per channel which can unleash the full potential of both 32ohm through to 600ohm headphones. It offers balanced in/out to take full advantage of the growing availability of balanced sources and headphones. The 2.5mm balanced headphone jack means the it can be used to boost the amplification of high-end DAPs.
