It looks awesome and the sound quality is just that damn good. When … Continue reading Campfire Audio Andromeda 2020: A Legend Reborn

Campfire Audio Solaris 2020: Lean and Mean

Greetings! Today we’re checking out Campfire Audio’s new top of the top of the line model, the revised Solaris 2020. The original Solaris was a stunner in all aspects. The large, gold-plated housings drew in the eye while a bold tune pleased the ear. However, the black and gold colour scheme and fairly massive housings earned it some critics. The new Solaris addresses those complaints … Continue reading Campfire Audio Solaris 2020: Lean and Mean

Campfire Audio Ara: A new direction

Greetings! Today we’re checking out the new top dog model in Campfire Audio’s armature-only lineup, the Ara (air-ah). Campfire’s gear in my experience has mostly been about providing an entertaining, but not necessarily accurate experience. The Atlas and Polaris were hella fun, v-shaped bass monsters, the IO a bright little beast laser focused on mids, and the Andromeda a killer all-rounder with a little bit … Continue reading Campfire Audio Ara: A new direction

Inside is where the major changes have taken … Continue reading Campfire Audio: The 2020 Crew

Campfire Audio Andromeda: As Expected

Greetings! Today we’re checking out the Andromeda from Campfire Audio. Does this thing really need an introduction? For the sake of writing a complete review, sure, but I’ll keep it brief. The Andromeda first appeared on the market in 2016 and took the portable audio community by storm thanks to a balanced tune that does pretty much everything right. Over the years it has continued … Continue reading Campfire Audio Andromeda: As Expected

Campfire Audio Polaris II: Renewed and Reloaded

Greetings! Today we’re checking out the new, reworked version of the Polaris from Campfire Audio. Back in 2017 when I reviewed the original Polaris, I was blown away. Here was an earphone that was quite technically adept in a way that was befitting of it’s premium price tag, yet it had an unashamedly v-shaped signature. It was both fun and capable, yet there were a … Continue reading Campfire Audio Polaris II: Renewed and Reloaded
