xMEMS
xMEMS speaker technology implements both actuation and diaphragm in silicon producing the world’s fastest and most precise speakers for IEMs. With these next-generation speakers, there’s virtually no phase shift and they are close to 150 times faster than regular mechanical drivers. By integrating this technology into the new ZEN CAN 3, listeners can enjoy superior clarity and fidelity during listening sessions to reach a new dimension of audio quality.

Gaming & Movie Modes
The iFi ZEN CAN 3 is built for more than just music. The new launch boasts 2 new analogue EQ modes, tuned for Gaming and Movies. Movie mode enhances dialogue clarity, so you never miss a moment during your favourite films while Game mode makes low-level sound effects crystal-clear to keep you one step ahead of your opponents - at all times.

Prodigious Power
A noticeable step up in power, perfect for difficult-to-drive headphones. The new iFi ZEN CAN 3 brings up to 2,000mW continuous output power to deliver an exceptional sound experience for almost every headphone on the market. The ZEN CAN 3 also features 0-18dB adjustable gain, with +6dB steps to perfectly match your headphones.

Refreshed ZEN Design
The ZEN CAN 3 follows the recent design refresh found with other ZEN 3 series products in the iFi range. Its modern two-tone design stands out among the hi-fi ‘black boxes’ while the revised volume meter and Sunlit Bronze hardware adds to a premium look and feel. Finally, the buttons on the front panel are arranged in a smile-like formation which injects character into the ZEN CAN 3.
