EXPERTLY DESIGNED WITH THE UNIQUE ASTELL&KERN AESTHETIC AND GOLD PVD COATED HEADPHONE CONNECTORS

A gold PVD coating is applied to the headphone connector instead of the standard practice of coating the rings to minimize the contact noise from the output jacks. This application improves both the design and the functionality by allowing audio signals to flow without any artefacts. The gold PVD coating is also applied to the finely processed ceramic top shell with the Astell&Kern logo engraved, expressing the harmony inherent in the design. Continuing the identity of the Astell&Kern KANN series, KANN MAX has upgraded to a thinner size and high-power performance. The slimmer shape is highlighted with the hexagonal top line and a hairline treatment on the back embedding the essence of speed and showing confidence in themselves. KANN MAX also features a LED volume wheel which displays various playback information, including volume level and bit-rate of the track currently playing.
