Blog: Canjam Europe 2017 – Berlin – Part 1



A new brand at the show so I checked them out in detail. I was impressed with what they showed me and you’ll certainly be seeing more of them very soon on HFN

Not only do they make hearing protection but they also have a full range of custom IEMs with 2 to 4 drivers

Every single model could be tested in their van while having a beer. More companies should do that 😉

Don’t you just love getting your impressions taken?

JDS Labs

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: JDSLabs has great products!

I especially like the amp and I’m not the only one as it could be spotted at several booths.


The Keces DC-116 wasn’t the only regulated power supply at the show. So far I’ve always been holding of doing articles of this type of devices but maybe we should look at them on HFN. What says you?

Kennerton Audio

If you like the Audeze style and tuning you definitely need to check out the models from the Russian Kennerton. Especially the Odin and Vali

The new upcoming Vali is even more impressive though… you’ll see.

Lehmann Audio

Mister Lehmann not only is a very nice guy, he also knows how to make top quality products. The German brand is respected all over the world

The linear might be the most famous model

but we were especially curious about he new Drachenfels. Review coming up!


And that’s it for today, you’ll get the check out the rest of the picture report tomorrow. But we’ve pretty much got something for you each day this week…

    Hi Lieven.

    I always enjoy going through your picture reports from the CanJam’s. This time I was able to attend again after last years absence. Only because of the shorter distance to Berlin than Essen for me, only 6 hours drive from Denmark. 9 hours for you… – no excuse 😉

    The highlights at this CanJam for me was Etymotic ER-4XS(yes – absolutely WOW), UERR and Meier Corda Soul. The Etymotic ER-3 did not win me over, I would gladly pay more for the new ER-4XS, which has a perfect balance for my ears.

    Got to listen to the Mojo for the first time and it didn’t really impress me that much. I thought it was much better given all the hype over the last years. It is handy and very portable though but I will probably stay with my old CLAS –> Quickstep stack, which has been with me at several CanJams for a while yet.

    All in all the Berlin CanJam was excellent. I was there Saturday and didn’t have time to attend the lectures because there was so much to listen to in all the booths. I will be back next year and have a good excuse to visit Berlin again!
