Beautifully balanced Pro power

The Pro iCAN Signature sports an end-to-end fully differential balanced circuit design that delivers ultra low distortion. This means extraordinary quality with minimal interference and reduced crosstalk. The sound is cleaner, deeper and more dynamic.

It is also exceptionally powerful and will drve any headphone on the planet. It boasts balanced output power of >14,000mW and single-ended power output of >4,800mW.

And with variable gain, you can adjust the Pro iCAN Signature to drive your headphone of choice.

To tube or not to tube…?

Or to Tube+? That is the question.

With the Pro iCAN Signature you can enjoy the sound of solid-state or tubes in one single package

For some of your recordings, and depending on whether you are listening through headphones or speakers, you may prefer the ‘lively’ feel of solid-state or for others, the more ‘luxurious’ feel of Tube or Tube+.

The choice is yours at the flick of a switch in real time

Signature by name…

The Pro iCAN Signature wouldn’t be ours without our signature sonic tweaks. Just like the original, it boasts XBass and 3D Holographic settings so that you can calibrate sound to suite your system and personal taste.

XBass is our analogue ‘bass boost’ that enhances the low frequencies without muddying the mid-range

3D Holographic for Headphones undoes the negative sonic impact of listening to recordings that were originally created for loudspeakers.

3D Holographic for Loudspeaker Systems corrects the spatial distortion and restores the natural soundstage

Get connected

The Pro iCAN Signature boasts a plethora of fully balanced and single-ended connections.

Headphone connections include the new 4.4mm balanced Pentaconn output as well as a fully balanced XLR, a single-ended 6.3mm and our unique S-Balanced 3.5mm output.

Our S-Balanced output cuts distortion by 50% with single-ended headphones connections.

iFi Audio Pro iCAN Signature, included iPower Elite offboard AC/DC power supply | Headphones.com

Power is everything.

The Pro iCAN Signature, ships with our flagship iPOWER Elite.

Coupled with the re-crafted power supply board which is up to 300% quieter, the music is buttery smooth.

Within and without – we left no stone unturned in our quest for the cleanest, purest, power for the Pro iCAN Signature (same for Pro iDSD Signature too!)


14,000mW

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

Adjustable gain diagram

Gain  is adjustable from 0dB/9dB/18dB.

It 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.

Balanced channel diagram
S-Balanced Performance mark

The iFi exclusive S-Balanced technology made its debut in the original Pro iCAN. Since then, it has become a significant feature in across the iFi range and features in the  Pro iCAN Signature as expected.

It delivers the maximum performance from both single-ended and balanced headphones. The  S-Balanced (single-ended compatible balanced) 3.5mm headphone output delivers the benefits of the balanced connection to single-ended headphones.

Tube and Tube+ switch diagram

You can switch from solid-state to tubes in real time.

There are 2 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 the transient performance.

3D mark

An ‘Out of Head’ listening experience. Our  3D Holographic® dual-analogue matrices place the artist with you in the room, not inside your head.

X Bass mark

Sonically superior – richer, deeper.

The XBass® analogue bass correction system corrects for the missing headphone/speaker bass response.
