In my opinion, perhaps the coolest thing about the Head-Fi community is that we like to get together, through micro-meets, mini-meets, regional meets, and even international meets. One of the things about our hobby that encourages this is that headphone audio gear is usually quite easy to take places to share with others.

 

Through these meets, you will likely get to hear all the gear you've previously only read about, but wanted so badly to try before buying. You'll get to be in the company of like-minded people of wildly varying backgrounds. And, through these meets, you will almost certainly make friends for life. There are many people I've met through this community over the last 11 years--through these meets--who'll be friends for the long haul. Through this community, I feel like I can go virtually anywhere in the world and know there'll be at least a couple of friends to hang out with there, not to mention couches or beds to crash on, if needed in a pinch.

 

If you haven't been to a Head-Fi meet, I strongly encourage you to do so. The members of this community independently organize almost all of these meets (and almost always on weekends). So, on virtually any weekend, somewhere in the world (and often in several places in the world), there's probably a Head-Fi meet happening. If there haven't historically been Head-Fi meets near you, consider organizing one yourself.

RMAF is easily one of the best consumer-attended high-end audio shows on the planet. And since 2009, Head-Fi (as a guest of RMAF) has organized the annual CanJam @ RMAF, located within RMAF at the Denver Marriott Tech Center.

 

CanJam @ RMAF is over 12,000 square feet of the best headphone and personal audio gear in the world, with an international roster of manufacturer exhibitors specifically serving the high-end headphone and personal audio market.

 

So, in one weekend, all at the same place, for the very affordable price of admission to RMAF, you can attend one of the best high-end audio shows in the world, and one of the best high-end headphone and personal audio shows in the world. Each and every year, without fail, great sounds are heard, and new friends made.

 

Put it in your calendar today, and start making your travel plans. Come and hang out with thousands of like-minded audio enthusiasts in Denver from October 10-12, 2014 for RMAF and CanJam @ RMAF. See you there!

And yes, it's perfectly okay if you're new and aren't bringing any gear.  Just bring you, and have a great time checking out new gear, making new friends, and generally have an awesome time with people that get you about all of this crazy headphone stuff that you're into.  :)
