Pros: Amazing instrumental imaging & detail , XBass is satisfying , insane battery life .
Cons: No tubes ?
The iFi iCAN nano has been enjoyed by me for more than 100 hours by now .
The battery life of this portable amplifier is so good , i don't remember charging after the first time i've charged it to full , remember , being a portable amplifier , battery life is rather important .
i've used it with my monster turbine pro gold & Beyerdynamic T90 .
The 3D holographic is simply amazing , majority of amplifiers do not come with switches as such . it gives life to the music you're listening and make the overall listening experience really wonderful . It widens the soundstage and gave it a certain kind of clarity and more depth together with detail .
The X bass does not make your music sounds boomy by amping the bass , it carefully pushes the low end roll-off to be delivered in a way that it becomes a must to have , it is so smooth and headphones which are alittle boring could do some of this . Music is meant to be enjoyed , give it alittle low end push :)
Being a solid state amp , i initially found the treble in the T90s to be fairly bright , however it is alright now , not sure if my ears adjusted to the treble or the headphone burned in . i enjoy the sound from them alot now :)
Overall they are a wonderful amp , and in high gain , it could easily power the Sennheiser HD800 aswell . i am pairing this Amp with the iDSD Nano , their portable DAC .
Powerful , portable , high quality construction , high quality sound .
