August 2015

Bringing The Authentic CanJam Experience To Europe


Well over 1000 headphone geeks turned up for CanJam SoCal 2015, making it the biggest ever standalone premium headphone audio event in North America. CanJam SoCal was a fantastic gathering of community members and exhibitors, and the energy, innovation, and enthusiasm was amazing. Again, the sentiment seemed unanimous and overwhelming: More CanJam, more places!
 
We had way too much fun, and want to continue the party in Europe. On 29-30 August 2015, at the gorgeous Hotel Russell in the heart of Central London (United Kingdom), we're going to throw another CanJam. This is going to be the first official CanJam in Europe, and the CanJam organizing team of Ethan (@third_eye), Warren (@warrenpchi), Joe (@joe), and me, will be working with Duncan (@Duncan), one of the founding British Head-Fi members, and other UK Head-Fi members to rock it out in full CanJam style in one of my favorite cities in the world--London!
 
Exhibitor interest is sky high, and I already know there'll be several exciting new products that haven't yet been leaked or unveiled. Since we have a strong European Head-Fi member contingent, we expect fantastic attendance!
 
No matter where in the world you're from, you won't want to miss this. It's CanJam. In London. This summer (29-30 August 2015). C'mon--be there!
 ​
Start making your plans now.  Book your flights.  Book your rail tickets.  Book your hotel rooms. (Our CanJam SoCal discounted block of hotel rooms sold out very quickly). And head on over to the CanJam London 2015 Eventbrite registration page to reserve your event tickets right away.
 
CanJam London 2015 -- the first and only official CanJam in Europe -- is on!

* Yes, we know what "shag" means in the UK.  For the record, it means the same thing in the States.  It's simply a coincidental acronym.
 
As part of CanJam London 2015, we are holding a Scavenger Hunt and Giveaway (SHaG), where you can win amazing audio gear. Here's how it works:
 
  1. You must pick up a SHaG card at the CanJam London 2015 registration desk. This card will fit in your event badge holder.
  2. The SHaG card will have the logos of the exhibitors participating in the CanJam SHaG on it.
  3. As you make your way through CanJam London 2015, make sure to stop by each and every participating exhibitor (again, identified by their logos on the SHaG card). Each SHaG exhibitor you visit will validate their logo on your card after you have performed their suggested task (given a sincere listen/audition at their exhibit, opting in to a list, etc.).
  4. Once your SHaG card is completely validated by every SHaG exhibitor, please turn it in at the CanJam London 2015 Registration Desk. Your completely validated SHaG card will serve as your valid entry for the SHaG drawing.
  5. Winners will be chosen at random from the valid entries at the close of the show (Sunday, August 30, 2015 @ 5pm), and prizes will be awarded at that time.  Please note that some prizes might be shipped directly by the participating SHaG exhibitors.
  6. Only one completed SHaG entry card per attendee is allowed.
  7. There is a maximum of one prize per valid SHaG entry.
  8. CanJam exhibitors and their staff are ineligible.
 ​
So what are the prizes? Here is the current list, which may be added to over the next few days:
 
One pair of AKG K550 headphones; and 2 sets of Y50 in red
One pair of ATH-MSR7 hi-res headphones
TBD
One Sound Blaster E5 (high-res USB DAC & portable headphone amp)
TBD
TBD
One pair of HE400S headphones
One pair of M500 headphones; one pair of M400 headphones; and one pair of M100 IEMs
One pair of Noble Savant; and one Noble BTS
One pair of PM-3 headphones in white
A Pendulumic pack consisting of the Stance S1+ headphones, BT1 wireless transmitter and some other PENDULUMIC merchandise
One QP1R hi-res DAP
One pair of T20 IEMs
One pair of custom sleeves made for an earphone of the winner's choice
One pair of Jet Pro headphones
TBD
 
 
Cool Tip:  Great care has been taken to make sure that this card fits into your name badge holder, so that you can store it there when not in use - but also to have it within easy reach when you do need it.
 
Since we're not eligible to win any of this, we hope you do!  Good luck!

Hey everybody, IT'S T-SHIRT TIME!  
smile.gif

 

 
Those of you who have ordered t-shirts at our meets and shows before already know this drill.  
smile.gif
  To reserve your shirt, please reply (post in this thread, do not PM) with your Head-Fi handle, the size you want, and how many of that size that you want - all separated by pipes. If you need to order multiple sizes, please start a new line.  For example, this is my "order":
 
warrenpchi|L|3
warrenpchi|S|1
 
The above order accounts for three shirts for me, and one shirt for m'lady.  Oh BTW, if you intend to wear the shirt at the show, and would like a fresh shirt for each day, don't forget to order two.  In my case above, I'm ordering three because I'll also need an extra one for set-up day.
 
T-shirts are £15 each, and will be both picked-up and paid-for at the show, though we must have your reservation now in order to guarantee your shirts.  The deadline for t-shirt orders is noon (12:00p) London time (GMT+0), on Monday, August 17th, 2015.  @moedawg140 will tabulate all of the reservations posted in this thread.
