Hey all, It's Julie from iFi again. I dropped some info over on the ZEN DAC signature product page and thought would be good to share this compatibility chart here for the ZEN CAN Signature 6XX. Also, if youd like to check out the following thread, we are sharing the fuller indepth tech there:
Thanks, any questions please ask, we will do our best to answer!

Hi all, we just wanted to share more info on the two products. Whilst they are not mutually exclusive and can certainly work standalone- the best set up to drive your HD 6XX is to have both. Let us explain why: THE ENDGAME SET UP- ZEN DAC Signature + ZEN Can Signature 6XX + Drop HD 6XX 
(TL;DR)  Your Sennheiser HD6XX headphones give you a smooth, laid-back presentation. Its neutral response provides a pleasant listening experience with any music genre. Though connecting to a laptop or average digital converter/headphone amplifier will always mean the last 20-30% of the full potential is not fully realised. 
The 'endgame' solution is the iFi dedicated ZEN DAC Signature and ZEN CAN Signature 6XX. These premium versions of the ZEN series were uniquely developed for Drop customers. 
This magical combination means Drop HD 6XX* enjoyment is ‘turbocharged’ to eleven: 

  • ZEN DAC Signature gives far superior music enjoyment from TIDAL Masters to Spotify. Instead of average audio quality in your phone, tablet or laptop you get music quality that befits the best setups. Built with the best components such as Sanyo OSCONs, it is a premium version of our ZEN DAC 
  • ZEN CAN Signature 6XX is the only one on the market with dedicated equalisation and 15v@300 Ohms output power. Both of which are a bit special. All underpinned by boutique components such as Elna Silmics II. 
Before, your HD6XX sounded a bit like using a Mini to pull an Airstream. 

You are moving, but always wishing if you could ‘floor it?’ 
With the iFi combo, as the saying goes, ‘there is no replacement for displacement’ so the ZEN DAC Signature and the ZEN CAN Signature give you turbocharged sound quality AND oomph to properly drive your Sennheiser HD6XX. 

When you ‘drive’ your Sennheiser HD6XX with the premium DAC & CAN Signatures, the full potential will be realised. We are talking 15v at 300 Ohms which gives the poise and power not found anywhere else.       *Please see Compatibility chart to check other models. 

  Hope this helps, as always any questions please!

I actually was able to pick up the Signature stack for $170 each on ebay costing $340 which I find more reasonable. already owning the regular IFI Zen Can and Dac stack, I was able to compare the sound difference. After going back and forth with both stacks, I must say the Signature Can does sound much better then the regular Can. I can hear the sound is fuller and brighter on the Signature stack and the bass is also more pronounced. I needed to have bass boost on all the time on the original Zen Can, to get what is the normal sound of the Signature Can, which offered a richer fuller sound. I actually shipped back the normal IFI Zen Can/Amp back.

The internal combustion similes/metaphors are all over the place but I’ll let it slide. This time.

Is there a V2 refresh planned for the ZEN CAN series? I currently own the ZEN DAC V2 and wanted a ZEN CAN V2 so that the color/finish and buttons will match. Thanks in advance.

isnt the BAL output power of the CAN very low? I was expecting about 2000 mw @ 32 ohm

Hi all, I'm waiting on this, the Zen DAC Signature, and my pair of Sennheiser 6XXs to come in, and I'm wondering what else I might need. If I want to get the best possible experience out of this, what else do I need to order in terms of cables? I tried reading the specs and looking through the discussions here but mostly just got confused, I'm new to all this. Do I need to buy a balanced cable to connect the AMP and DAC together? Does it come with one? Does it come with other cables that will work instead? Will I have a better experience if I invest in a balanced cable? (assuming it needs to be bought) And what about connecting the 6XXs to the amp? Do I use the included 6.3 mm to 3.5 mm converter? Should I get a balanced headphone cable for my 6XXs to use the 4.4mm port? Will I have a better experience if I do? And where would I get one? Thanks in advance

If I buy this for just the $249 price listed, what will I get? It is a little hard for me to tell what actually comes with the purchase, especially since everyone keeps talking about these $89 4.4 to 4.4 cables which I don't see anywhere.

It seems not to be ordered in a bundle with Dac Signature & 4.4mm connector. When will the Iff Zen Dac Signature be on Drop again? I wanna order in a bundle. Still waiting for the discounted price.

Wait does this Drop come with the dac? It is pictured but I do not see the add on option like in previous ones. Do you even need the dac? Yeah I guess you do, there is no input. Why is the zen dac shown in the pictures then? It surely must come with it
Sep 2, 2021
I really would like to known that. It came with the Dac or not? Because there’s a picture of the Dac on the presentation page. And I’ve bought it thinking it is. I was cheated?

I have the IFI Hip-DAC/AMP. I am interested in purchasing the Sennheiser 6XX together with the IFI Zen Can. My question is, given the similar electronics of the Hip/DAC & the Zen DAC, would I able to use the Hip/DAC and not need the Zen Can? My chief music source will continue to be my iPhone. Thanks
Jan 8, 2022
I would like to know this as well. TIA!

I ended up purchasing the Sennheiser 58X instead, for its warmer sound and lower power requirements. The Hip DAC/amp provides a level of volume and resolution that is significantly better than the iPhone alone, although the iPhone will drive the headphones by itself.
