Ideal for Audiophiles

These Amps & DACs are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Amps & DACs like these. You can expect these Amps & DACs to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Amps & DACs is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Amps & DACs deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

Volume Controls

If your Amps & DACs have volume controls, you will be able to adjust the volume level with a simple touch of a button without having to reach for your source device. Your music keeps playing without being interrupted or accidentally paused during playback. Having volume controls on Amps & DACs or at least in-line controls on the audio cable may seem unnecessary to some people, but they are, in fact, quite convenient.

Based on the award-winning ZEN Series, iFi’s ZEN Air CAN makes high-performance audio more affordable than ever before.

IFI AUDIO PRESENTS THE ALL NEW ZEN AIR CAN FROM THE ZEN AIR SERIES

The successor to the award-winning ZEN CAN, iFi audio introduces a fascinating amplifier - the all-new ZEN Air CAN. The all-new ZEN Air CAN presents a unique sonic character and comes embedded with an array of features. This high-resolution, headphone amplifier provides a great listening experience with any source, be it PCs, Macs or even a streamer. It offers settings to dial in the perfect sound for a variety of headphones. The new ZEN Air CAN can drive the most demanding headphone due to its balanced circuit design and versatile sonic tailoring options to optimise audio performance.

ZEN-Air-Phono



Headphone-Zone-iFi-Audio-ZEN-Air-CAN

A REMARKABLY ENGINEERED AMP WITH ADVANCED AUDIO ARCHITECTURE

The ZEN Air CAN circuitry has been designed for audiophiles with an asymmetrical channel layout that presents clean audio without any artefacts. It simply takes an input signal from a source and creates a larger copy of the original audio signal before it’s transmitted to your headphones. The ZEN Air CAN comes with three gain settings so that it works well with every pair of headphones or in-ear monitors (also known as IEMs). iFi Audio incorporates custom OVA-series op-amps that use a folded cascade design for ultra-low distortion alongside Texas Instruments low-noise ICs to offer unity-gain bandwidth and high output drive capability. Furthermore, TDK C0G (Class 1 ceramic) capacitors offer high stability and low losses for resonant circuit applications.

OFFERING SONIC TAILORING CAPABILITY WITH XBASS+ AND XSPACE FEATURES

If you are someone who enjoys punchy bass, iFi ZEN Air CAN has got you covered with their XBass+ feature. The bass boost, XBass+ is purely an analogue circuit that is specifically designed to extend the bass response to suit different types of headphones. Another feature of the ZEN Air CAN is the XSpace which opens up your music to give you the spaciousness of a live concert. It is a purely analogue signal processing circuit designed for listening to headphones as if one is listening to speakers. It also recreates a holographic sound elevating your listening experience. This XSpace feature presents an ‘inside the head’ sensation, making your music more enjoyable.

PAINSTAKINGLY DESIGNED WITH UTMOST ATTENTION TO DETAIL IN EVERY ASPECT

The ZEN Air CAN has easy-to-use features along with a sleek design, making it aesthetically pleasing and practical to use. It has dual headphone outputs – 6.3mm and 4.4mm S-Balanced. At iFi Audio, they realised that not everyone has balanced headphones, they embedded the S-Balanced technology. This gives you all the benefits of a balanced connection – lower noise, less crosstalk – but without the need for balanced headphones. The ZEN Air CAN supports three analogue inputs, the same number as the ZEN CAN – but here, there are two stereo RCA inputs and one 3.5mm S-Balanced connection in total. An alloy shielding is provided within the thermoplastic polymer outer case to protect the signal path to avoid any disturbance. The changes between settings have been engineered to ensure sonic transparency. The FET-based switching micro-controller only wakes up when the user changes the settings minimising any distortions. The fact that iFi has succeeded in embedding such attention to detail in one headphone amp is impressive.

OMG! ZEN AIR CAN IS THE NEW BEAST

What shall I begin with, it brought next level power to my DT 990 250 ohms compared to my previous DAC AMP "FX-AUDIO" DAC-X6. All I can say it sounds amazing, even tested the Sennheiser HD598 simply loving it. Its one of those gems in market under 100$ range which simply does what it says.
Recommended for 300 ohms impedance headphones.
Warm sounding with crisp clarity, no distortion noticed at different gain settings and volume levels. I can finally enjoy the Jon Hopkins - Insides on 990 now. I wanted to give a try to this Ifi company desktop amplifiers, so amazed that it matches the power of its predecessor IFi Zen can and at half the price. If you are not looking for balanced output just go for it, yet they provide 4.4mm slot.
I use to miss the enjoyable sibilance in DT 770 due to lack of power and now it's back.
Using Samsung mobile charger to power 5v 2a, tried Mi charger as well 5v 3a. Both works fine for DC current.
Xbass+ is fine but Xspace doesn't add up much to the sound, even felt like sometimes it killed the neutrality and warmth of sounds. Not recommended to use.
Sample rate and bit depth used 24bit, 192000 Hz(studio Quality).

Ifi Zen Air Can Amplifier.

I connect my headphones (Beyerdynamics DT990 Pro 250 Ohm) to the PC using this as an amp. So here are my two cents.

Pros- 1. Effortlessly powers my 250 Ohm Dt 990 Pro
2. Premium looks-wise and quality-wise.
3. Has a 4.4 mm S-Balanced output
4. Analog volume knob
5. Gain control 0, 6, 9 db
6. Filters ground loop hums and no hissing sound even at max gain & max
volume.
7. No distortion or crackle sound while adjusting volume knob.
8. Xspace is quite good in increasing soundstage especially with dolby
atmos for headphones. Do check out "Tucker Zone" on Youtube with
these and good open back phones. Mind blowing.
9. Xbass is good for open back headphones having sub-bass roll off.
10. Beautiful to look at, imo.

Cons- 1. Why did Ifi not give a power adapter? They are cost cutting, but a not-so-costly adapter could have been tweaked for 5v 2.5 A without static noise and provided in the box.

2. Price is justified for the features, and if it lasts.

Overall, satisfied with the Zen Air Can and impressed by the fast 2 day delivery and prompt technical assistance by Headphone Zone.

Hi there, we are so happy you took out time and elaborately reviewed the product with a comparison. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better and informed decision.

Does what it Says but for Half the Price.

I was buying HE400SE and I was confused between Zen Air DAC and Air Can,
I went ahead with the Zen Air Can as I already had a clean DAC (iPhone USB-c dongle). It provides enough power to run my HE400SE on the low gain at 2'o clock.

While HE400SE isn't power hungry, when you EQ it, it adds -6.2db pre-gain which makes them really hard to drive. After EQing I have to use high gain which is why I am thankful I went with Zen Air Can instead of DAC.

The Amp is really clean. I tried using it with Moondrop CHU and I cannot hear any noise out of it. Moondrop CHU is a very sensitive IEM and will pickup the noise very easily if it Exists.

Features: Xbass+ and Xspace really work. And if you have an Open back headphone, you will love X-bass+ as they add the low-end rumble most open back lack.

Do i recommend it? Yes. For 7-9k INR, I think it is the best AMP for the buck and should be a part of your budget build. 1.2W will power most headphones.

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!

Excellent Amp for the price

It sounds similar to its big brother zen can. Only downside being a slightly less driving power. Other than that it offers a 4.4mm output which is not truly balanced design, but an added advantage for those used to having balanced cables.
XBass & Xspace are additional features which are rare at this price point and add a bit more bass and treble and airiness.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

The ifi zen can air drives my dt990oro like a pro! Sounds fantastic! (a little bassy but that's alright) and the spatial audio feature works really well with my games, looks good too.But... it isn't made out of metal as said.A great little beginner/intermediate amp.
