iFi’ Audio's popular ZEN Series has received praise for delivering exceptional sound at affordable prices, earning scores of industry awards. The new ZEN Air range makes things even more accessible, simplifying the circuitry and stripping back some features whilst retaining core elements to make ZEN more accessible than ever.

The ZEN Air CAN is a powerful, hi-res home analogue amplifier that provides greater headphone enjoyment with any analogue audio source.

Amp it up.  The ZEN Air CAN is an amplifier pure and simple.
It simply takes an input signal from a source such as those mentioned above and creates an amplified copy of the original signal before it’s sent to your headphones.

Think about listening to sound with your hands over your ears and then removing them! Adding the ZEN Air CAN into your system is a little like that – back comes clarity of sound as well as volume.

Lots to gain…
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).

What is gain? Gain in audio terms refers to an amplifier’s ability to increase the amplitude (size) of the signal from the source (input) to the headphones or speakers (output). More gain equals a stronger signal.

You will need to adjust the gain depending on the sensitivity of the headphones or iEMs you are using. For example, highly sensitive headphones need lower gain.

Play around with the settings. Trust your ears and enjoy!

eSpecially for you.
The ZEN Air CAN has two different headphone sockets – 6.3mm single-ended and 4.4mm. While the latter is not fully balanced like in the standard Zen CAN, it allows for flexibility in connection.

Sonic tailoring.
The ZEN Air CAN boasts a couple of optional sonic tweaks, unique to iFi.

  • XBass is analogue bass boost. In other words, it extends the bass response to suit different headphones.
  • XSpace is an analogue headphone spatializer. This advanced cross-feed opens up your music to give you the spaciousness of a live-concert atmosphere.
