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

Our portable headphone amplifier is sure to give your music a superior sound.

The mother of all amplifiers

The xCAN is a portable amplifier above all else and is for anyone who enjoys good sound.  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 F1 car in all their glory.

Wicked wiring

Connect via a digital SPDIF or via analogue 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 power house

The xCAN is a dual-mono headphone amplifier with 1000mW of power per channel. It will happily drive your favourite headphones.

And we added our signature sonic extras as well.

3D+® opens up your music to give you the spaciousness of a live-concert atmosphere.

The XBass â…¡® analogue 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 (analogue) 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.
