  • The Long Story

    One player to rule them all

    Astell&Kern's KANN provides a new power standard for mobile music performance. Combining a high-quality audio player and a high-performance amplifier, KANN draws on the technological expertise of Astell&Kern, the leading Portable Hi-Fi Audio manufacturer. Thereby, promising to take the Hi-Res audio industry to a whole new level.

    Output optimized to user's listening environment

    KANN is the first Astell&Kern product that is equipped with a line-out circuit designed to set the output values in 4 levels, depending on the user's listening preference. This is a significant step up from Astell&Kern's previous products, which did not provide output/volume control. Now with the selectable output function, you can fine-tune your sound to suit a home system, car audio, or any other listening environment.


    Dual memory card slots

    KANN has an in-built internal memory of 64 GB, which can be easily and flexibly boosted via the unit's dual memory card slots. KANN supports both standard SD cards and micro SD cards, so users can select their preferred memory type. The standard SD card can take upto 512GB extra whereas, the microSD can take up for another 256 GB. Thus, making the memory expandable up to 832 GB to easily handle larger audio files.

    Fast charging

    The Kann comes with in-built Fast Charging feature, due to which a mere 1 hour of charge can give a playback of upto 6.5 hours. You do not even have to think about a dead battery if you are a traveller as the 6,200mA large capacity battery offers 15 hours of continous playback.



    Truly powerful, high-quality output

    The design of the Astell&Kern kann is such that it can easily incorporate a high-performance amplifier into a player, thereby creating a perfect equillibrium between the two. Supporting numerous outputs and gains, the KANN has proved that it can not only drives high-impedance headphones without an additional amplifier, but also reliably reproduces high-quality sound with low-impedance speakers.

    Connecting to a Wireless Network

    KANN is not only good with your smartphones but also supports wireless networking DLNA (Ver. 1.0), which makes it easy to work with PC/NAS on the same AP network. The AK Connect app supporting smartphone/tablet computer interfaces, thereby creating a network between all your devices and streaming music from wherever you wish.

    Deliver the perfect original sound

    KANN strives the most to deliver perfect original sound. It is also capable of bit-to-bit playback up to 32bit 384kHz and native DSD playback up to 11.2MHz, delivering detailed, distortion-free sound just as the artist intended.

    Scalability using USB Audio

    KANN comes with additional USB audio to increase flexibility of use. You can connect the USB Audio to KANN via the micro USB port. KANN allows output conversion according to the specifications of the external USB Audio that supports DoP (DSD over PCM) or PCM, and yet provides a continuous music playback with charging via the Type-C USB port while connected to the external USB Audio.


    The finest sound quality from audio files stored on a PC

    The KANN Supports the bit-to-bit playback up to 32-bit 384kHz when connected to the PC for use as a USB DAC. It has the potential to produce richer sounds along with special spatial effects and resolution that go far beyond the limits of any PC sound card.

Music at its best

Got the blue version and it looks beautiful and sleek. Sounds pure, bass in right place. Support all formats I know. Balanced out is absolutely rocking. Battery life above average. AK has excelled in all department with Kann. Special mention to aptx HD, Bluetooth devices got a new meaning.

Great sound

I had Fiio X5 earlier but in comparison this is far more superior.
Sound quality is very nice and well balanced.
Paired with RHA T20 they sound great with KANN.
Never thought these iems were this capable.

Nice Player for Better Price!!!

I am really thankful to "Team HeadPhoneZone" getting the player for better price, yes it is bulky, but it really has rich features and all headphone shine with this player.
