A Short Film about CanJam NYC 2019

CanJam NYC 2019 attracted 65 exhibitors. No high-end headphone store on the planet could hope to match that level of product audition potential. . .2,200 attendees spilling through the doors of the Marriott Marquis at Times Square. (Young!) People also come to CanJam to hear seminars from main-man Jude Mansilla and a host of product engineers. Trade shows like these give consumers an opportunity to talk to manufacturers and to get a taste of what’s new and what’s coming down the pike.

Jana Dagdagan took her video camera across the Brooklyn Bridge to CanJam NYC 2019 where she extracted new gear highlights from Focal, Sony, Schiit, Mytek, ZMF and Campfire Audio.


CanJam NYC 2019 Part 1

CanJams are a time to meet old friends and make new ones. The NYC show is one of my favorite shows because I grew up in Brooklyn and for me, it also serves as a homecoming. The atmosphere of the Marriott Marquis is spectacular. Located in the heart of NYC and on Broadway it also offers the attendees an opportunity to go to a Broadway show or see other attractions. Over 60 companies all unique in their own way were showing new personal audio gear that was inspiring and exciting. The first day went by so fast as I was covering the show it left me tired at the end of the day, but it was rewarding, talking with so many community friends and listening to the amazing new products and designs that were being offered.

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.
