Product Information

Let the Air in.

Enjoy unbeatable HD Bluetooth streaming from your phone, tablet, or computer.

ZEN Air Blue

Get maximum sound quality from Bluetooth audio with the ZEN Air Blue. The ZEN Air Blue is a high-quality Bluetooth audio receiver. It converts Bluetooth audio streams from smartphones, computers, or tablets into an audio stream suitable for headphones, amplifiers, and active speakers (speakers that run on their own DC power).

Hear the Difference

The ZEN Air Blue will give you the maximum sound quality from your device – your smartphone, computer, or tablet – as it operates at the highest audio resolution level of any Bluetooth system. The Bluetooth system inside has been upgraded by iFi to avoid the 40% drop in the audio quality you typically experience with standard Bluetooth (compared to wired audio). It’s the ideal way to wirelessly connect your smart device to a sound system in super hi-res (high resolution).

Effortless. Easy.

The ZEN Air Blue is ideal as part of a simple, new set-up for someone just starting out in audio who wants to experience the high quality of music streaming apps like Apple Music, Tidal, and Qobuz. Just connect your laptop, smartphone, or tablet to the ZEN Air Blue via Bluetooth and connect the ZEN Air Blue to your amplifier or active speakers via the RCA connections at the back.

Confident Compatibility

The ZEN Air Blue supports any current Bluetooth stereo audio codec (signal) available on the market today.

  • SBC – standard Bluetooth used by most audio devices
  • aptX – better than SBC, widely used, found in Android devices
  • AAC – better than SBC, widely used, found in Apple devices
  • aptX HD, aptxLL, and aptX Adaptive – variations on an improved aptX
  • LDAC – extremely high quality, designed by Sony
  • LHDC – extremely high quality, designed by Huawei

Basically, whatever device you are using for streaming music via Bluetooth, iFi has you covered.

How long is the supplied USB cable?

  Thanks for your inquiry. The length of the included USB to DC cable is not specified.
Can you use a 5 volt cell phone charger for a power supply?
Ira S on Feb 21, 2023
  Thank you for your inquiry. A 5VDC phone charger will work, with appropriate connection plug, but they have lower output current capability and a higher noise floor.
