So, another great CanJam, only there for a few hours but got a lot in. I was really looking for endgame IEM for myself and the wife, but also nice to check out all the expensive gear on show. My Favorites (in order): 1. EE Legend X/Valkyrie - man I can't decide. Listened to the LX before and it's bass/everything is exceptional, but damn, the Valkyrie has the best high's I have ever heard on anything ever - totally addictive. If the LX had the Valkyrie high end electrostat I think it would be the end to all IEM searching. 2. EE Bravado - so close to the LX for basically 1/4 the price, amazing. 3. Vision Ears Elysium - Identical high end to the Valkyrie, but prefer the rest of the EE signature, not by a lot though 4. InEar SD5 - perfect musical sound sig, very very good fit and well built nozzle (that can be replaced) - really good for the price (around €1K) 5. 64 Audio A12t - probably my favorite in their whole lineup, does everything well. 5. 64 Audio Tia Forte Noir - improves on the original in seemingly all areas, which I love, but that price tag... Everything else (no particular order): 1. Tried the CA Solaris & Equinox - nice but nothing special, maybe needs more powerful DAP? (using the Cowon Plenue M2) 2. Rupert Neve new DAC (the big one) - a thing of beauty and totally transparent, like a window into the music, the guy thinks around £4k retail when released but their still testing it out a bit. 3. Fiio M11 pro - very nice DAP, quick, good screen, clean transparent sound. However won't replace my Cowon. 4. DX220 - preferred this with it's tube amp to the M11 pro, nice warm analog and musical sound. TBH the M11 & DX220 are very similar, but I would likely end up with the DX220 as it's replaceable amp section appeals to me and better in the hand for right handed users. 5. Again my custom Angie's are my preference in the whole JH lineup. 6. Westone W80 always impresses me. Not enough to be my favorite but the sound that thing produces from such a small shell is really impressive. If I was after a small IEM (for small ears or whatever) that would be my choice. 7. Not sure if it's me or the noisy room but all the headphones I tried (Empyrean, Stellia, Utopia) were very bass light. Mid's and Highs all there but distinct lack of bass. Seems a recurring theme with headphones at the shows. Only headphones I heard with good bass were (at previous shows) the MR Speakers Ether open back and Sennehiser HE1 (in a private room). If I had time I would have tried that listening booth, very good idea btw. 8. Obravo EAMT-1c was really nice, good in all areas and very wide sound - again that price tag! Their new Cupid is nice, but nothing special to me. As usual everyone at the stands were super cool and patient while I keep switching back and forth between IEM's or whatever. Well organized show as usual, shout out the whole CJ crew. I think a lot of tables could have a few more chairs/setups, EE and Campfire for sure! I am now a believer in the new Electrostats for an IEM high end, definitely a game changer - I expect we'll be seeing more and more. Gutted I couldn't listen to the Noble Khan but ran out of time. Would like to see the effect of Eltrostats on DAP battery life. I had to turn my player +50% volume over my Angie's to get the same volume level (especially bad with an Electrostat/DD mix). See you all next year.
