Jude and crew have done an amazing job of putting the world of headphones under one roof. Well...many roofs...all over the world. If you're interested in attending one, check out the schedule here.

I needed to buckle down and get a bunch of headphones reviewed, so CanJam New York wasn't in the plan for me, but Jana Dagdagan heard the siren call. Here's the first of two posts where Jana takes us along for a visit to the show.

When Jana Dagdagan, Stereophile's Editorial Coordinator, told me she was planning a trip out to Bozeman to shoot videos we had a long conversation about what kinds of things we could shoot. One of her ideas was a Q&A session. I thought that was a cool idea and we started brainstorming questions. O.M.G. She thought of some doozies. Some of then I just flat out said, "No way, I'm not going to answer that." Fortunately she managed to convince me to leave most of them in.

Gotta say, it feels kind funny swinging my doors wide open and letting everyone into my home. I try to keep it mostly business here. But I've often thought you guys would enjoy some of the gadgets I've built. Make sure you stay 'til the end so you can see the back country camper I'm building from a FedEx truck. I'm particularly proud of Putt, my step van.

Chatting with Jana and listing out the review process really drove home just how complicated and how many discrete steps are involved. You'll notice I look down a lot in the video. It took about three pages of single line notes to detail all the steps in proper order.

Oh boy, what fun! Jana Dagdagan, Stereophile's Editorial Coordinator, has been visiting me here in my home in Montana for a few days to produce a series of videos. You can expect quite few more over the next few weeks as she edits them. Today, I'm going to talk about my vision of the future of headphones.

Last month, I visited Ultimate Ears Pro in Irvine, California for a tour of their office/facility, and to finally try custom in-ears for the first time.

The customs that I ended up receiving (full disclosure: as a complimentary press sample) were the UE Pro Reference Remastered studio reference monitors ($999). They were developed in collaboration with Capitol Studios and house three balanced armature drivers.

While officially on assignment for Stereophile to help cover the 2017 Los Angeles Audio Show, Jana Dagdagan captured a few exhibitors she thought that might interest InnerFidelity readers. Here's her look at personal audio of interest at the inaugural Los Angeles Audio Show that took place last month.

Over the last six months, I’ve attended RMAF 2016, NYAS 2016, and CES 2017—consisting of predominantly traditional two-channel hi-fi systems and enthusiasts. While that can be enjoyable in its own way, I feel more at home in a room full of headphone enthusiasts. There’s less negativity, less pressure, less unspoken competition for the center seat, and most importantly, less sense of some bizarre imposed hierarchy. This drastic difference was immediately apparent as soon as I stepped foot into the bustling halls of the Marriott. (Over 2000 attendees!)

I was thrilled to see Noble at CanJam because I wasn’t able to listen to the Kaiser Encore and Sage which were released last fall at RMAF 2016. Prior to CanJam, the last time anything Noble had graced my ears was the Noble 6 in late 2015. It had been far too long. Their current design concept combines colors and geometric textures in a way that creates, in my view, a very video-gamey look and feel.
