HEADFI and personal audio gear, when viewed collectively in a large space, can be intimidating. Although CanJam 2018, held on March 24-25 at the Pan Pacific Singapore and organised by the global Headfi.org community, was somewhat less hectic than we expected it to be (at least on the first day), the variety of wares laid out would certainly leave enthusiasts awestruck!
Showing everything from “bejewelled” in-ear monitors and style statement gear to esoteric electrostatic “earspeaker-driver” systems (that will cost you a small car) and tube-drive headamps, dealers, distributors and manufacturers vied for attention at the hotel’s Grand Ballroom and half-a-dozen Ocean conference rooms that got busier as the day wore on. Heavy afternoon showers across the island were no deterrent to headfi enthusiasts.
We took a walk through the event space on the first day, and here’s some headfi porn to keep you interested.
