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.

This amplifier is made to be used along with the full-sized HiFiMANs' like the Sundara, Ananda, and Arya. The custom tuning brings out the best in these planars. The balanced outputs truely elevate the sound to the next level, and adding a balanced cable is a must-have.

EXPERIENCE DISTORTION-FREE SONIC ADVENTURES LIKE NEVER BEFORE WITH ACTIVEQ

The iFi Audio ZEN CAN Signature HFM is a powerhouse, all-analogue headphone amp which can drive even the most demanding headphones with its balanced circuit design and distortion-free sonic tailoring. The ActivEQ feature combines active and passive components to create a specific EQ curve to suit any pair of headphones. This processing is performed in the analogue domain without adding any additional noise or distortion, elevating your listening experience tenfolds. The ZEN CAN Signature HFM enhances the texture of the deep bass and injects more immediacy into the upper mid-range.
ZEN CAN Signature HFM

Headphone-Zone-iFi-Audio-ZEN-CAN-Signature-HFM

SPECIAL TUNING TAILORED FOR 𝐇𝐈𝐅𝐈𝐌𝐀𝐍 HEADPHONES

The iFi Audio ZEN CAN Signature HFM is fine-tuned to work with 𝐇𝐈𝐅𝐈𝐌𝐀𝐍 headphones. The ActivEQ featured in the device offers specific calibration for 𝐇𝐈𝐅𝐈𝐌𝐀𝐍 planar headphones, elevating sound across the entire frequency spectrum to bring out the best in these already remarkable headphones. This offers unparalleled transparency and presents a wide-open sound stage. As with the previous ZEN CAN Signature model, this feature can be switched on or off and without ActivEQ engaged, the ZEN CAN Signature HFM’s performance is cleverly balanced to bring out the best in all other headphones and in-ear monitors. Excellent results are noted with the Sundara, HE-4XX, HE-400S, Edition X, HE-5 headphones to name a few.

FOUR POWERMATCH GAIN STAGE SETTINGS THAT TAKES CARE OF VARIOUS POWER-HUNGRY HEADPHONES

The iFi Audio ZEN CAN Signature HFM has four gain settings in six dB steps – 0dB, 6dB, 12dB and 18db. This feature is called PowerMatch. PoweMatch enables the amp to precisely suit the connected headphones. Unity gain (0dB) is essential to ensure low noise with sensitive in-ear monitors, while the higher gain settings make the most of headphone loads, delivering excellent dynamic headroom. So whether it's headphones or IEMs, the ZEN CAN Signature HFM brings out the best in everything. With the PowerMatch feature, gain staging has never been this easy.

WIDE SOUND STAGE - SPEAKER LIKE EXPERIENCE WITH ANALOGUE PROCESSING MODE

The analogue processing mode in the ZEN CAN Signature HFM series compensates for the ‘In-Head Localisation’ effect. This can occur when using headphones to listen to music mixed using a pair of speakers. To solve this issue, iFi Audio added its analogue processing technology to the ZEN CAN Signature HFM. This feature is similar to the 3D functionality and is mainly intended for albums where the soundstage is mostly centred between the ears. With analogue processing mode, the ZEN CAN stretches the soundstage in a way that voices are still nicely centred, but details and effects are spaciously staged, creating a wider and deeper soundstage. The sound delivered is more spacious and has a speaker-like experience.

Headphone-Zone-iFi-Audio-ZEN-CAN-Signature-HFM

BUILT WITH DISCREET CLASS-A CIRCUITRY AND EXCEPTIONAL COMPONENTS FOR IMMACULATE SOUND

At the core of ZEN CAN Signature HFM is a balanced circuit and asymmetrical dual-mono topology design. It features a host of elements that are adopted from the discrete Class-A circuitry designed particularly for the flagship Pro iCAN. Experience lowest ESR, excellent noise reduction and improved frequency response elements with highly durable Panasonic OS-CON caps. For resonant circuit applications, you require advanced stability and minimum losses. The TDK C0G (Class 1 ceramic) capacitors ensure just that by bringing capacitor-generated distortion to negligibly low levels. The ZEN CAN Signature HFM relies on ELNA Japan Silmic II capacitors for power supply, which has dielectric silk fibre delivering excellent acoustic qualities and exceptional linearity.

IMMENSE DRIVING POWER THAT OFFERS UNMATCHED SONIC EXCELLENCE

Drive a range of headphones with absolute ease using the ZEN CAN Signature HFM. It offers a powerful 1600mW (7.2V) into 32 ohms through single-ended output and 15V+ of power into 300+ ohms through balanced output offering 52 times more capable than many other amps. The ZEN CAN Signature HFM continues the reputation of its predecessors and delivers ultra-low distortion, rich sonic detail, engaging dynamics and the ability to drive all manner of headphones with ease. The custom OV Series is an advanced component used in the ZEN CAN Signature HFM, which reduces noise to the lowest levels while widening the bandwidth. You don't have to struggle to switch between settings ever again with the advanced FET-based MOSFET technology which can be used as a muting switch. This switch is managed by a microcontroller which 'wakes up' only if you change a setting, leaving no space for unhealthy sonic interference. The device is also equipped with a Tokyo Cosmos Electric Co. (TOCOS) multi-track potentiometer, which offers close channel matching tolerance for optimal performance.

Great Price-performance ratio

I would like to making this a comparative review to bring out the characteristics of Zen Can Sig HFM. I have owned several desktop amps in the 30K price bracked. Compared to original (OG) Zen Can, the HFM version has much better build quality, as the OG ver had rattling sound from switches when shaken. Also the HFM has a more precise tonality and timbre. Overall the 10K difference is worth it. Comparing to slightly costlier Topping A30 Pro , I find Zen Can HFM to have better soundstage, with cleaner instrument seperation (especially treble and bass). That said, I still prefer the warmer sound signature or tonality of A30 pro (high gain mode) and find that to have a better synergy, with Hifiman Arya and Audeze LCD2. Tonality is highly subjective after all. I have tried the 'HFM' and 'Xspace' Active Eq options with Arya, as these features are specifically tuned for Hifiman headphones. These Elevate certain frequencies, but I felt the naturality in the sound was getting compromised. So I prefer to keep these tuned off. Note that I have tried Zen Can HFM only in Single ended and not in balanced output with my headphones.

ZEN CAN AUDIO signature HFM

A great headphone amplifier, with adequate gain to drive the high impedance headphones.Incredible sound,specially designed for HIFI man headphones.
Also works great with other headphones.
The HFM filter extends the sub base, also improvement in treble response.
The 4 stage gain levels can be set to adjust any headphone sensitivity.
The filters are greatly effective for a bigger sound stage.
Very happy with the buy, and a great thanks, to the headphone zone team and specially Danesh, for his guidance and technical deliberations, which is being felt as soon we have started to run the ZEN CAN AUDIO SIGNATURE HFM.
Thanks to headphone zone to present us these great systems here in India. The delivery after ordering was immaculate.
Thanks, keep up the great excellent service/ reliability
and of our great expectations as will always be there in future.

Excellent!

My setup is: Ifi Zen Dac V2 (working in Fixed mode) --> 4.4mm balanced cable --> Ifi Zen CAN Signature HFM --> Hifiman Ananda headphones (using a 4.4mm balanced cable).

It works well! Initially I had just the Ifi Zen Dac V2 which is a DAC-AMP. Then I decided to go for a dedicated Amp. and bought this Ifi Zen CAN Signature HFM since I have the Hifiman Ananda Headphones. I am happy to say that the addition of a dedicated Amp. has made a noticeable difference in the sound quality. If everything was very good earlier, now it has become excellent. The bass, mids, vocals, and highs are definitely cleaner and sound much better now. I will not go into a long-detailed description of the sound's aspects and instead just say that overall, having this AMP with Hifiman Headphones does make a good difference. I use this Amp. with the HFM mode on and since I have earlier heard my Anandas without this Amp. for a decent amount of time, I'd say that this Amp. works as is advertised on the Ifi Audio website. The sound curve with the HFM mode on does accentuate the base, add more body to the vocals, and most importantly, tame the (sometimes) uneven/harsh highs that the Ananda is prone to. The separation and soundstage have also surely improved.
I personally did not like the ‘XSpace’ mode and keep it turned off because after using it for a while, I thought it was altering the sound signature a little too much by adding more treble and sharpness than I prefer.
With the 'HFM' mode on, it’s perfect for me.

To anyone owning Hifiman Headphones and looking for a dedicated Amp., I’d say give this a serious thought. It is well worth your time, attention, and money.
