One of the brands everyone was looking forward to. It was the first time I saw the AKG K1000 successor myself and boy did I like it.
I’ve been so lucky to listen to the original K1000 on several occasions but this new Mysphere 3.1 just blows that away sound-wise.
Sure you look a bit weird, futuristic and geeky wearing that thing. The things we have to do for the job…
It was a bit heavier than I expected it would be, but it was comfortable at the same time. The Mysphere 3.1 also is modular so you can replace all parts of it if needed. Try it!
Apologies for the dark picture, but it does make the logo look better.
I already was a fan of the Brooklyn DAC when I listened to it at the Headphone Heaven show a few weeks ago, and for me this is the best DAC of the show.
The full Nuforce series was also available to Demo. Nathan is a fan of these series, check out his reviews HERE
You either love or hate the Obravo style and sound, but I’m a lover. Their EAMT-1A won one of our awards last year
Their full sized headphones (pic: HAMT-1 MKII) haven’t convinced me as much as their IEMs have though, but they keep on getting better. Especially this HAMT-1 Signature model (€5499)
I think I’ll stick with their IEMs though
I’m very much looking forward to listening to the Ra C Cu when it’ll be available (€9999)
Not so much of Oppo was to be found at the show this year, but the guys from AudioQuest do like using it with their NightOwl headphones.
The one and only Pono player at the show. Do people still use these?
ProJect Audio / Box Design
I bet a lot of people have never heard of Box Design before but they’re part of the world famous turntable maker from Austria
If you’re looking for neutrally tuned, qualitative gear that doesn’t break the bank, then start reading up on their models
I quite like the little Pre Box S2 myself and I heard nothing but good from other people about it either.
It’s always good seeing our friends from RHA at the shows and this time they pretty much brought everything to the show
Most popular were the 600 and 750 wireless
But the newest IEM that RHA presented was the 650 series and I really liked it a lot
Like Fiio, the RHA guys know how to make gear that has excellent value.
Like each year the German guys from Rhines are at the Canjam show
This year there was nothing new at the show from these guys, but they’re always fun to meet
They were mostly showing of some new design, which I quite appreciated myself
Especially this little gem
Am I the only one that likes getting ear impressions taken?
