xMEMS support
The iFi ZEN CAN 3 supports IEMs using xMEMS, an innovative speaker technology to push the boundaries of headphone performance.

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 and 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.

This adds to the ZEN CAN’s impressive additional EQ modes that offer a tailored, personal experience for the listener. XBass+ and XSpace options on the device create a more accurate bass response and spacious sound field.
