Disclaimer: Headfonia is in no way related to the people organizing Canjam Europe. But as it is the only real headphone related show, we’re going and they deserve some media attention. We’re a media partner because such a huge event deserves media coverage. Everything for the readers 🙂
Time sure does fly. I can remember being there last year for the whole weekend and not even having enough time to check everything out. But on to this year’s event!
CanJam Europe 2014 – Europe’s leading show for headphones and accessories opens in September at a new location ! On Sept. 20th and 21st, Europe’s dedicated headphone show CanJam will open again. Consumers, professional users and trade visitors experience headphones, audio players, amplifiers and accessories of all sizes and prize categories at Congress Center West of Messe Essen. After the great success of the initial event, the organizers expect twice as many exhibitors for 2014 and have added workshops and lectures.
The headphone show presents headphones, starting with entry-level in-ear models all the way to high-end fullsize-headphones, sources from classic CD players to portable hires players, amplifiers for desktop and portable use as well as accessories for personal audio.
In addition to the commercial show, a dedicated community area hosts private headphone enthusiasts and give them ample opportunity to showcase their personal setup and DIY devices. New at CanJam Europe 2014: Workshops and lectures surrounding audio playback and reception, DIY and modification of hifi devices.
I have been asked to do a workshop or give a lecture as well during the weekend but I honestly wouldn’t know what about. Is there anything specific you might want me to talk about? I’d be more then happy to see what you guys are interested in.
Update:A lot of the brands have signed up in the mean time and it looks like it is going to be huge this year. Check out participating brands here. From what I have heard, the list is even growing…
It already was super last year but this year’s event is one you do not want to miss. And on top of that you’ll have a chance to meet yours truly. I’m usually a nice guy when surrounded by headphones and amplifiers so do come up to say hello, I’ll be there for both days!
Tickets are now for sale here, prices range from 2€ to 10€.
