The S-Balanced (single-ended compatible balanced) 3.5mm headphone output delivers the benefits of the balanced connection to single-ended headphones. Reap the advantages of balanced wiring, enjoy lower distortion and reduced crosstalk.

aptX

The xCAN delivers CD-Quality Bluetooth via AAC, aptX and aptX LL with added iFi magic. Stream from your smartphone or TV via Bluetooth to the xCAN - no need for wires. Just plug your headphones into the xCAN at your side for the best Bluetooth sound around.

3D+ & XBass II

Our 3D+® system creates a more a engaging sound and puts the performer on stage in your home. Our new XBass Ⅱ® adds even more musical satisfaction. The XBass Ⅱ® analogue bass correction system corrects headphone bass response to deliver a more natural sound to the upper bass frequency band.

Global Master Timing

The xCAN comes with built-in Global Master Timing from AMR so jitter is a thing of the past. This represents a total ‘out of the box’ systematic digital solution that solves the digital jitter problem once and for all.

Cyber Drive

The Cyberdrive headphone amplifier stage is one of the pivotal new circuit designs in the x-series. This new design places all parameters of the fully analogue system under digital control for a ‘best of both worlds’ scenario.

The Cyberdrive design incorporates the iFi exclusive OV4627 ultra low noise FET input Op-Amp and W990VST digitally controlled stepped attenuator to deliver a new level of sound-quality.

Seperate Power

With a separate power input (USB Type C) to charge its own internal battery, it does not draw from your smartphone or playback device. Playback time is up to eight hours.
