I always make sure to make enough time for the Malvalve corner. they have great sounding gear, always bring a bunch of headphones to the show and it’s the only time a year when I get to listen to that awesome prototype headphone.
You wear it like you wear the classic AKG K1000, with the speakers next to your ears in an angled position. This thing is huge and weighs a lot but it sounds so incredibly good. At the same time it’s more comfortable then you would expect, but yeah, it’s quite unique to say the least
Yep that’s me rocking the Malvalve headphone. Next to the new Mysphere, this definitely was the other headphone everyone just had to try. But yeah, a normal headphone is quite a bit more comfy
Those Malvalve tube amplifiers not only look, but also sound impressive, I’m always glad to see them at Canjam Europe
Malvalve doesn’t only bring tube amps to the show though
OK, I just have to post one more picture of that crazy headphone. I want one!
The show was held at the NHow hotel which is a music hotel and everywhere could you see guitars and Marshall amplifiers.
This was the only Marshall headphone at the show though. Surprised to see it there? Me too, but it was there for a good reason. Check out Sonarworks in this report later if you want to find out more about its mystery appearance
If you’re serious about audio then you surely have heard of the Meier Corda and Classic before. Normally you can find these “classics” from Mr. Meier at each canjam show but not so this year…
This year Jan Meier only took two of his new Corda Soul prototype amplifiers with him to the show, together with a selection of the finest headphones. I heard the Corda Soul last year already and back then it already sounded impressive.
Now after one year the prototype is final and I have to give it to Mr. Meier, it sounds even better. For me this is a highlight of Canjam Berlin/Europe 2017. And the best part? I took it home with me…
We saw the brand at Canjam London for the first time and it was present in Berlin as well.
That’s me again wearing the Meters in a funny way. It sounded better than I expected, I have to admit that. But of course this is what you all want to see. Video:
Our friends from Romenia of course were also at the show. Is there anyone that doesn’t like Meze?
Both their headphones as well as their IEMs have a great price-quality ratio, what’s not to like?
And they have the looks, that’s for sure… Expect more from Meze soon!
The brand new Italian company came all the way to Berlin to show the world their first creation. Really nice guys as well.
The amplifier pleasantly surprised me although I expected it to be a bit cheaper. In its defense ModenAudio does only use top quality local materials to build the amplifier (in Italy). And they’re customizable!
At each show you go to there’s always a couple of Mr. Speakers headphones. These weren’t overly present but the latest models such as the Aeons and the famous Aethers could be auditioned
