Headfonics is now an official media partner for CanJam Europe 2016! We will have our guy on the ground running around trying lots of headphones, desktop and portable media this September in Essen, Germany with a Show Report shortly afterward.

CanJam Europe, the largest headphone show in Europe, will return to Essen, Germany on September 24th and 25th 2016 for its fourth session. Visitors literally get to try thousands of headphones, hundreds of portable and desktop players, headphone amps, DACs and other accessories for portable hi-fi. Its format of a table show is what makes CanJam Europe so special: Visitors sit at the table of currently more than 60 exhibitors, can try and compare every available device and talk to engineers and product managers.

CanJam Europe unites all relevant headphone manufacturers: German headphone giants Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic as well as US pro-audio experts Shure. In addition, numerous new brands will be exhibiting at CanJam Europe for the first time, like for example French speaker powerhouse Focal. At CanJam Europe, they will be presenting new gear as well as flagship products.

Highlights include Sennheiser’s brand new Orpheus HE-1, with a price of 50,000 Euros currently the most expensive headphone in the world or Shure’s electrostatic earphone KSE 1500 at 3,000 Euros. Many manufacturers of custom in-ears will be showcasing demo units of their earphones, which are fitted individually to the customer’s ear shape and will be taking ear impressions right at the show. If you’re looking for something a little more common, there’ll be headphones for sports, travel, daily commute or hi-fi at home, which won’t break the bank.

In addition to headphones, exhibitors will also be showing portable audio players, which go way beyond MP3, desktop and portable headphone amps for demanding headphones or external DACs, which convert every smartphone into a hi-res hi-fi device. Accessories such as headphone stands or cable add to the show.

At CanJam Europe’s free seminar and workshop track, visitors learn about the possibilities of personal audio and get valuable tips for a perfect headphone experience.
