The Marriott Marquis right in Times Square was the scene for the first-ever CanJam NYC tradeshow in the Big Apple. There, several dozen top-of-the-line audio manufacturers got together to show off some of the latest headphone tech. It wasn't just about the "cans" though. Tables throughout the show floor had DACs, amplifiers, digital media players, cables, custom headphone pads, and more.
CanJam is definitely a place where audiophiles and headphone enthusiasts can come together to learn about, demo, and soak in all of the latest personal audio technology. The events got started back in 2006, but have really experienced a ton of growth in the last year or so. In New York, nearly 60 companies were on hand to exhibit product. Other CanJam events that happen throughout the year include a London CanJam, SoCal, Singapore, and a presence at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. And there may be plans in the not-so-distant future to expand the event further.
Here's a look at some of what was going on in Times Square.
