CanJam New York 2019: The Show in Review

I love CanJams because I love headphones and use them more than box speakers. But more than that, I like participating in worldwide headphone culture. I like the age, ethnic, and gender diversity of headphone people. I like the good-vibe of CanJam’s open rooms with high-ceilings, and tables filled with sweet DACs, exotic amplifiers, and leading-edge transducer technology. I can’t wait, I am ready now for the next one.


CANJAM NYC 2019: Highlights

I did not spend as much time at CANJAM as I’d planned, [however. . .] I did spend enough time to soak in the hustle and bustle and good cheer that has become a hallmark of headphone enthusiasts. The crowd was mixed in every way, people were having fun, conversation was lively, and there was plenty of intent listening going on everywhere. I enjoyed. . .CANJAM NYC 2019 and congratulate the CANJAM crew for another fine and well-attended show.
