COVID-19 Guidelines
Our guidelines will require all CanJam NYC 2022 attendees, exhibitors, and staff to show proof of vaccination in order to attend CanJam NYC. This is in compliance with an Executive Order issued by the Mayor of New York City which went into effect on August 16, 2021. The New York Marriott Marquis has implemented a procedure where hotel staff will be checking CanJam attendees' proof of vaccination on the 3rd floor, and issuing bracelets upon completion of the check. CanJam attendees will then proceed to the 6th floor to check in at the CanJam NYC Registration Desk.

Proof of vaccination (with a valid form of identification) means proof of receipt of at least two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use or licensed for use by the US Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization with the exception of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine which requires only one dose. Such proof may be established by one of the following:
  • A CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or an official immunization record from the jurisdiction, state, or country where the vaccine was administered or a digital or physical photo of such a card or record, reflecting the person’s name, vaccine brand, and date administered
  • A New York City COVID Safe Pass
  • A New York State Excelsior Pass
Additionally, the following steps will be taken to enhance the safety of CanJam NYC 2022 attendees, exhibitors, and staff:
  • We will create more space at the Registration Desk and during the check in process.
  • We will create more space between booths, along with wider aisles, to reduce congestion and facilitate social distancing.
  • Hand sanitizers will be placed on every exhibitor table and at the Registration Desk.
As is standard practice for large indoor events during COVID-19, we will be requiring all attendees, exhibitors, and staff to review and sign an event liability waiver before entering CanJam NYC 2022. The waiver will be sent in advance to all ticket holder email addresses, and CanJam NYC attendees can either bring the signed waiver with them, or they can pick up and sign the waiver at the Registration Desk upon check-in at CanJam NYC 2022.

For more information, please visit NYC Health's Key to NYC page here. We will continue to monitor and comply with all applicable laws and regulations from the CDC, the State of New York, and the New York Health Department and will update our guidelines as necessary.

We are grateful for the ability to be hosting CanJam events again, and we look forward to welcoming you back, and once again seeing all of you, live, and in person!

2022 NYC t-shirt效果图-01.jpg

To reserve your shirt, please reply in the thread (do not PM) with your Head-Fi handle, the size you want, and how many of that size you want - all separated by hyphens. If you need to order multiple sizes, please start a new line. For example, this is my "order":


CanJam NYC 2022 T-Shirts are $30
and can be paid for with cash at the Registration Desk until 1pm on February, September 27. All preorders not picked up by then will be released for general sale.

All T-Shirt pre-orders will be both picked up and paid for at the show, although we must have your reservation now in order to guarantee your shirts. The deadline for T-Shirt pre-orders for CanJam NYC 2022 is Friday, February 11, 2022. We will have a few extras T-Shirts in various sizes on hand as well. CanJam NYC 2022 volunteers do not have to separately order T-shirts as we will be providing them directly.

Winter Garden and Music Box rooms

The past few years have seen phenomenal growth in high-end personal audio -- with the number of new product options being eclipsed only by the number of newcomers to the hobby.

To properly welcome everybody that is new to the hobby, we have prepared a series of highly-instructional "101" seminars, suitable for beginners and veterans alike. These seminars - lead by some of the most exceptional experts in personal audio - will establish a foundational knowledge base, expand understanding, shatter myths, and help you choose the gear that is best for you (often through personal Q&A sessions with our instructors).

Please note that we've scheduled most of the highly-instructional "101" seminars to take place as early as possible, with the majority of them on Saturday. It is our hope that you'll be able attend them earlier on in the show, then immediately use what you've learned to help you audition and evaluate the gear out on the show floor.

It’s just like Head-Fi, only live and in real time.

Headphones 101
Saturday, February 26th, 2022
11:00a - 12:00p

Simple in theory, headphones can be extraordinarily complicated electroacoustic devices. Join us for a clear overview of various driver designs (dynamic, planar magnetic, electrostatic, etc.). Learn about basic acoustics, frequency response, impedance, sensitivity, and more. And most importantly, discover how to choose the headphone that best suits your needs.

Instructor: Everett Manns, Community Manager, Grell Audio

Headphones 201
Saturday, February 26th, 2022
12:00p - 1:00pm

Take your understanding of high-performance headphone audio to the next level, by taking a step back to see a bigger picture. Explore more advanced acoustical concepts - including pinna interaction, individual ear geometries, and acoustic impedances - all of which can contribute to both perceived and actual differences in what you hear.

Instructor: Axel Grell, Founder & CEO, Grell Audio

Amplification 101
Saturday, February 26th, 2022
2:00p - 3:00p

What amp will best drive your headphone(s) of choice? Should you opt for tubes or solid state? Learn the basics of amplification including gain, topology, and classification. Understand how power output, voltage, current, output impedance, damping factor, and distortion will factor into your decisions - and what an amplifier's specifications can and cannot tell you about its performance.

Instructor: Justin Weber, Founder & Lead Engineer/Designer, ampsandsound

Digital Audio 101
Saturday, February 26th, 2022
3:00p - 4:00p

Join us for a clear and concise introduction to digital audio, as well as the DACs (Digital-to-Analog Converters) needed to enjoy it. Learn all about various DAC topologies (Delta-sigma, R-2R, etc.), clocks, filters, jitter, ringing, whether DAC chips really do have a house sound, and much more - so that you can evaluate which DAC might be best for you.

Instructor: Michael Goodman, Founder & Lead Engineer/Designer, CEntrance

Streaming 101
Saturday, February 26th, 2022
4:00p - 5:00p

Streaming is arguably the most convenient method of audio delivery today. Learn about various streaming services and their features: music selection, audio quality, artist payout, and more. Then discover which streaming configuration (apps, connect, dedicated streaming hardware, etc.) is best for your needs. And finally, to Roon or not to Roon?

Instructor: David Solomon, VP Business Development, Chief Hi-Res Music Evangelist, Qobuz USA

Measurements 101
Sunday, February 27th, 2022
12:00p - 1:00p

Gain foundational knowledge in how to read and interpret headphone measurements. Learn what measurements can - and what they cannot - tell us about how headphones will sound. If your purchasing decisions are based upon measurements, either in whole or in part, this may be the most important seminar you’ll attend the entire weekend.

Instructor: Dan Clark, Founder & Lead Engineer/Designer, Dan Clark Audio

Special Presentation: Chord Electronics’ Mojo 2
Sunday, February 27th, 2022
2:00p - 3:00p

Seven years after the debut of its predecessor, Chord’s long-awaited Mojo 2 portable DAC/amp is finally here. Come join Rob Watts of Chord Electronics for a fascinating recounting of its development over the years, and a comprehensive overview of the Mojo 2’s groundbreaking features, including: UHD DSP (a fully transparent and lossless digital tone control); enhanced menu options featuring an additional control sphere for crossfeed/mute/lock settings; intelligent FPGA-based battery management and charging; and of course more taps.

Special Guest: Rob Watts, Chord Electronics

Special Presentation: Modern Measurement Techniques for Headphones, DACs and Related Audio Devices
Sunday, February 27th, 2022
3:00p - 4:00p

Since the introduction of the Hewlett-Packard 200A audio oscillator in 1939, sine waves have been the primary test signal to characterize performance of audio products. With many of today’s audio products incorporating non-linear signal processing, such as noise-cancelling headphones or voice-processing devices, sinewave-based testing methods either do not work or yield test results that are incorrect, especially when characterizing distortion. This seminar will focus on test techniques that incorporate test signals and analysis methods using speech and music-like signals as well as actual speech and music. This seminar is intended for anyone involved in product design or are interested in learning more about how today’s audio products should be tested to better characterize audio quality.

Special Guest: Dan Foley, Audio Precision

I had such a great time at CanJam Socal that I've got to do it again in New York. Give me a badge.

I guess there is no show rate for the Marriott Marquis?

The Sunday is my birthday! Sad we had to skip the last one, looking forward to attending this one.
Great. Just in time to empty your bank account for your own birthday presents.

What is the event like? Are there any videos from the previous events? Will I be able to go around with my DAP and audition any headphones I like? Will there be long lines with audition time limits?
