Blog: High End Munich & Canjam Europe 2018 – Picture Report Part 1


The American brand has many fans but at the same time their sound isn’t for everyone.

They have some absolutely great sounding headphones though.

And their design is just yum! Just look at that PS2000E

And there’s an amp as well. Didn’t see their IEMs though


Big and impressive, that’s what it is

Hiby Audio & Hidizs

Both brands were displaying together and I just loved their selection of gear

The Hiby R3 and Hiby R6 of course had to be shown there. Both players have received excellent comments from users all over the world. Hidizs came to Munich with their DH1000 and AP60II

But everyone of course wanted to play with the all new AP80!

Hifiman Electronics

Hifiman was both showing old and new models in Munich, such as the Sundara and the award winning HE-1000

But the biggest surprise was the new full sized headphone, the Ananda

Along with their very interesting R2R DAP. I have to say the combo sounded very impressive.

I have no idea of its price or when it’ll be available exactly, but I know I want one.

That’s it for part 1 of the High End Munich and Canjam Europe show. Part 2 will be up tomorrow right HERE.

    Excellent coverage.
    I’m waiting til you can reveal the news you mentioned in the Audioquest part. Maybe something re- Skylar …?

    Hey Lieven, I have been searching for comparisons of Astell&Kern SR15 and the AK70ii. Did you get a chance to try the SR15? If yes, how is it compared to the AK70ii?

      I only quickly got to listen to it in Munich. the SR15 samples aren’t available yet so I4m waiting for it just like everyone else. Soon I hope 🙂

        How was your first impression of the SR15? I’m actually considering to buy a DAP instead of upgrading my IEM.

        Currently, I’m using a Shure SE215SPE with AresII Cable,V-MODA Crossfade Wireless, and ATH-M50. Do you think buying a DAP will be more beneficial than buying a $500 – $1000 IEM?
