Show Report: CanJam New York 2023: Getting Enthusiastic About Headphones

I’m not sure about you, but my first notion of headphones or earphones came from my grandfather, Milton, who had one of those little mono earphones plugged into his little transistor radio, listening to Mets games. He let me try it, and even though the sound was a bit staticky and tinny, it was this amazing journey into another world. CanJam, an enthusiastic celebratory gathering of all things headphones, earphones, dedicated amps, DACs, and accessories, offered visitors a choice from $50 units to headphones and electronics costing many thousands of dollars. CanJams are held at various US and international locations, most recently at the New York Marriott Marquis. Everyone there was in high spirits.
