Campfire Audio Solaris – Say Hello to the New Flagship IEM
Campfire Audio recently released their latest and greatest IEM yet, the Campfire Solaris! It’s the new flagship featuring an all-new design and construction; new technology and new “dimensions of sound”. It seems that the Campfire Atlas’ reign as a flagship didn’t last long as it’s been already succeeded in just less than a year, if I am not mistaken. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that the existing Atlas, Andromeda and even the Vega will be discontinued. All of these IEMs have their own merits and has their own unique sound characteristics, tuning and design. So what’s fuss on the Solaris all about? Continue reading below and find out more.
Campfire Audio Solaris – Discover a new frontier of sound
The Campfire Solaris basically features a hybrid design; with two custom balanced armature drivers paired with Campfire’s Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber (T.A.E.C.) for extended highs without the sibilance or fatigue. There’s also a larger single rear-ported balanced armature driver for the mid frequency. Finally, a specially tuned version of Campfire’s 10mm Amorphous Diamond Like Carbon (A.D.L.C) dynamic driver that is optimized by Polarity Tuned Chamber. This anchors the sonic performance with deeply engaging mid-frequency tonality and visceral bass response. That’s a total of 4 drivers – 3 balanced armatures and 1 dynamic driver.
Like most of Campfire Audio’s IEM, the Solaris is hand-assembled in Portland, Oregon. The body is made of durable PVD finished body with 24K Gold plated lid, Beryllium / Copper MMCX Connections and a stainless steel spout. The Solaris is paired with Campfire’s Super Litz cable that is made from four large Silver-plated copper litz wire. The Super Litz is terminated with beryllium/copper MMCX connectors and over-molded with 3.5mm plug.
This sounds like a really nice IEM and I like the new body design with the combination of black and gold color theme. I’m pretty sure this would be easily appreciated by the many, considering how Campfire Audio tunes their IEMs. The Solaris is now available to order and comes with a retail price of $1499.
