Campfire Audio Andromeda, newly updated for spring 2019. The flagship 5 driver earphone is hand made by our friendly neighbours in Portland. Well loved in store, it is one of the best earphones available and one of the best headphone listening experiences available, with outstanding clarity and separation of sounds, vocals and instruments, extension in both the bass and treble and an open sound-stage.
The updates include a refined housing / body, a new Smokey cable and a new leather carry case.
The Andromeda features several unique Campfire design elements and technologies. The Andromeda is built from a machined aluminum housing, a perfectly inert acoustic housing for the earphones. Campfire uses their Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber (instead of plastic tubes & dampers) to tune the high frequencies - the chamber's shape and size controls the frequency response and tuning, partly responsible for Andromeda's beautiful, clear high frequencies, without sibilance.
There is a new Litz cable with a Smokey jacket over silver coated copper, with soft over ear guides for great comfort around the ear. Andromeda is already well reviewed across the internet as one of the top of the line IEM's on the market.
From Campfire Audio: Each shell is machined from a solid block of aluminum which take 9 hours of machining time. Andromeda utilizes a unique approach to achieve its soaring high frequency response. An optimized resonator assembly replaces the traditional tube and dampener system of many earphones. This system’s high frequency extension is unattainable using conventional techniques.
