The Pro series iESL is an unsurpassed energiser for electrostatic headphones (and a transformer-coupled stage for flagship dynamic headphones too). The Pro iESL driven by either the iFi Pro iCAN or another powerful amplifier takes electrostatic headphones to an unprecedented level of performance.
Its defining characteristic is a transparency and an ultra-wide dynamic range that is totally natural. The Pro iESL works with Stax, Sennheiser Orpheus and many more.
