The Pro iCAN performs as stylishly as it looks, and with the biggest artists using it the world over, the search for your next headphone amplifier is over. The Pro iCAN will rock your headphones because it’s fully balanced, meaning exceptional quality and minimal interference, plus it has built-in X-Bass and 3D+. It also comes with Solid-State and Tube amplifier options for unbeatable sonics.

The Pro iCAN is as a top-of-the-line, headphone amplifier that drives anything and everything – from CIEMs through to the most difficult to drive headphones ever made, the AKG K-1000. Gain is adjustable from 0dB/9dB/18dB. The Pro iCAN can output more than 10V in Single-Ended mode and 20V in Balanced-mode. The 20V mode is equivalent 100W into a 40 Ohm speaker.

Power like no other. Super-powerful 14,000mW headphone output power.

A fully discrete and balanced amplifier audio circuit. It operates with full-differential internal signaling. All the way through the circuit, there are always two separate signals of equal level but opposite polarity.

The iFi exclusive S-Balanced topology makes its debut in the flagship Pro iCAN. It delivers the maximum performance from single-ended and balanced headphones alike. Reap the benefits of balanced, enjoy lower distortion and reduced crosstalk on headphones.

You can enjoy both the sound of Solid-State and Tubes in a single package and be able to switch in real-time. For some recordings and headphones/loudspeakers, Solid-State may sound ‘more lively.’ For others, Tube and Tube+ (especially Tube+) will sound more ‘luxurious.’ Select the one that sounds best for that particular moment, be it the recording, the mood or even the weather. There are two tube settings; Tube and Tube+. The Tube+ position reduces overall loop-gain and thus negative feedback to the minimum. This gives a different trade-off between the tube’s natural harmonics and transient performance.
