iCAN micro SE (Special Edition) UPDATE

 

Hi there this is by way of an initial impression only as I'm supposed to be putting up our Christmas tree but instead I am listening to music!!! UPDATE is down in the last paragraphs below. Anyhow I got the chance to borrow a new iCAN micro SE from...

iCan really can do what you expect from it

 

I do not have much experience with many gears, but here is the short story of an amateur in the hobby, how he get to the Micro iCan. I used Fiio X3 first gen. to listen to music with a Schiit Vali. (And HD600) I liked the line out of the X3, as it was...

Versatility from IEMs to Planars, excellent body to the sound, XBass and 3D switches, quality fun sound with authority

sound could be more opened and airy, hiss at some worse quality recordings

iCan Micro - power and bass to your headphones

 

I have been using my Fiio X3 first gen. with Schiit Vali and HD600. I like the line out of the X3, as it has a much cleaner, more detailed superior sound to the headphone out. I also use the headphone out sometimes if I am after some extra bass....

versatility from IEMs to Planars, powerful sound, XBass and 3D switches

sound could be airier and more natural, hiss at some worse quality recordings

iCAN is a keeper. Paired with iDSD Micro you have got a winner combo. Highly recommended!!!

 

Have been listening to my new iCAN Micro for couple weeks now. Before that I use the headphone output directly out of my iDSD Micro. First of all i just want to say that iDSD Micro is great. One of the best gears i have ever bought. I buy and sell...

Very musical and smooth sounding. Great XBass and 3D implementation. Gain setting is very useful.

would be cool to have internal battery and an off button

My short review :)

 

There were many amps in 250$ range to choose from, but I liked iCAN's unique design and the shape. I don't have many headphones to do a comparison. I'm not a big fan of bass boost and 3D, but sometimes I do use bass boost on one dot position (by the...

Excellent warm sound, Powerful, Detailed, Transparent, Black silent background, Form factor and design

I don't know why they didn't design the amp with an on/off switch, Slight interference at lowest volume

Review: The iFi iCAN Amp

 

Fun settings to play with, good amp for the new enthusiast looking for his/her first amp,

can sound a little hot in the treble with some headphones when 3D boost is used, slight bleed into lower mids when max bass boost is used

A cracking little amp, with some fantastic extra features

 

Let me first make it clear that I am using a demo version of the ICan, sent to me by Vince at IFi. The reason for this is that as well as being a part time audiophile, I also run a video production company and we will be working with IFi to produce...

Powerful, transparent, fantastic soundstage

No power button

A fun, small form amp

 

There's an amp that's been making its rounds on Head-Fi for a while now, the iFi iCan. I've seen it pop up around various threads and I've always been curious but I never saw myself really wanting it. The iCan's 3D HolographicSound system is what...

3D sounds, bass boost, small form factor

No power switch, could use more power
