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

Cons: 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

Nice job!!
 
I dig my iCAN - especially for, as you state above - for the new headphone enthusiast!
I've lent mine out to many friends trying to get better sound through their cans, and this was a terrific stepping stone for them!!
Nice video! It holds its own pretty well against even significantly pricier gear. One thing I found is that while its output power is listed at a rather modest 400 mA, that feels like a very conservative rating. It have used it with Alpha Dogs and LCD-3s and it does pretty darn well with both even at the middle gain setting.
When discussing the 3d toggle, what does ""basically" no effect whatsoever" mean?
