+ Booth peeps. Lots of helpful friendly people around. Props for putting on a fun show.
+ Noble KHAAAAAN!'s bass. Big fan of ex1000 bone dry bass character, and Future Sonics club-woofer bass, but KHAN shows another way... idk how to describe, weirdly tactile tar ball bass. Was too distracted to notice the other frequencies, I think there were mids and highs. There weren't not mids and highs.
+ Campfire Andromeda, living up to reputation. Also, surpisingly comfortable (Comet/Atlas shell's very nice as well).New stock cables also very nice.
+ AK/JH Billy Jean. Wasn't expecting to like these, but very pleasantly suprised. Smooth, lush, slighlty dark sound IMO. Went nicely with the jazz & solo/chamber classical in my test tracks, can imagine slotting these in rotation w/ portapro for kicking back & relaxing on coffee breaks.
+ ZMF Atticus. Looking for some closed cans and was particularly interested in Eikon. Maybe my ears were too tired at this point but Atticus' struck me as more cohesive for all-rounder listening. Lovely build & comfort.
+ Audio Technica M50x. Haven't listend to an M50 in a looong time. The Pro-Ject table was using them & it was a little bit like coming up for fresh air after listening to 20 different headphones. Also thought Pro-Ject's S2 Digital dac/amp + streamer stack looked nifty.
= Grado PS2000e. Excellent $600 headphones.
= Campfire IO. Look even better in-person.
= Business parks.
- Stellia. Excellent $600 headphones.
- Clocks. Evil time thieves.
Heading out there today hoping to make it early to avoid the crowd. Did anyone find any off hotel parking to avoid the fee?
I believe they’ll post some details after CanJam is over, but I guess people at CanJam are getting first dibs? They had a QR code at the show you could use to access an exclusive link. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to share it here...Are the Grado HF-3 only being sold at CanJam?
