Description

The ambient keys soar up through a sparkling, sensitive treble and Yan Scott Wilkinson’s airy, pensive vocal is detailed and well presented. These in-ears are ultra-sensitive, too. The listed 112.8 dB SPL/mW sensitivity means that, if and when you do take the Andromedas out and about, they’ll be far less of a drain on your portable device’s battery than most in-ears.

Details Detail retrieval from highmids and trebles is frankly as good as it can possibly get without scanting into excessive thinness and the directly consequent metallic coloration. In conjunction to what’s mentioned above about bass and mids, a slight bit more relaxed transients over there would grant better detailing on those segments too. So often its a trade off between the two extremes. Of course you get the odd unicorn (or donkey) where they can be easily placed etcSecond, the materials used and the CNC process seems to have gone through a refinement process with the Andromeda now feeling a lot smoother and of a higher quality finish than the slightly duller materials of Jupiter’s housing. Unlike others, when tuning, CA didn’t sacrifice pleasure and timbre for 0,5% more detail. Campfire Audio always had its own vision of doing things, which as you know I appreciate a lot. Through time, we had 13 versions of Andromeda, with the reviewed Emerald Sea being the latest. Campfire likes to play with limited editions, creating unique designs with spectacular finishes. Next up, accessories. As a part of the set, you’ll find three Time Stream cables: 3,5mm, 2,5mm balanced, and 4,4mm balanced. One is already connected to the Andromeda’s, other two are in the brown sheet with the manufacturer’s logo.

Housing Machined aluminum shells with anodized emerald green outside finish. “Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber™” internal structure Sorry, but it is a rich delicious sound, decent fast full hitting deep bass, and luxurious low/upper mids, highs extending correctly and vocals just above the music (and not overly forward - how i like it). Male and female vocals reproduced properly. i am not a fan of every one of their releases, but i guess thats the beauty of it - something for everyone.

The other thing about the AG, perhaps a different take on one of the points highlighted as a “Good”: the AG sounds… boring. Almost generic at times, though that could be attributed to how unique the OG was in a time where the “K10 tuning” was rapidly gaining in popularity. The OG holds a special place in my heart in that, despite its boosted lower midrange and suppressed upper midrange, it still manages to sound very clean and almost sterile at times (higher output impedances). An oddity considering that combo usually means a muddy or bloated presentation, but the OG somehow avoids that through a delicate balance of a wideband bass boost and its signature treble spike. The Campfire Andromeda Special Edition: Gold is a mouthful of a name that I’ll hereby shorten as “AG” (for Andromeda Gold) and the original Andromedas as “OG”. It sports two extra bass drivers and boasts a crossover-less setup, so at this point it has nearly nothing in common with the OG except for the shell shape. It has more in common with the now-discontinued Orion for obvious reasons, which brings into question why Campfire decided to associate this new model with the OG in the first place. Zirconium blasted aluminum shells are finished in our classic emerald green anodizing; specially made for Andromeda.

I would absolutely kill for a chance to get IEMs with Cerakote finish. Do you guys know what it is? It’s a ceramic (duh) finish that will outlive us all. Often found on guns and Hi-Tec equipment. How about a polished stainless steel Andromeda? There you go. Different finishes, or tunings separated all of the variants, but when it comes to basic models we had five of them: 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020, and Emerald Sea. Disclaimer A big thank you to Caleb with Campfire Audio for reaching out to see if I would be interested in reviewing the Holocene, and for arranging a sample. The thoughts within this review are my own subjective opinions based on almost 6 months of use. They do not represent Campfire Audio or any other entity, and do not detract from the opinions of others who may or may not have listened to the Mammoth before posting their opinions. At the time of writing the Holocene was retailing for 649.00 USD: https://campfireaudio.com/shop/holocene/ One looking to move up in their collection, or someone with already a totl or two iem..or more..and wanting a simple commute or gym buddy would be happy. Its all a matter of perspective on this one.We stream Dungeon Family’s album Even In Darkness to see how the Andromedas deliver this kind of bass-heavy rap. These in-ears are prize heavyweights when it comes to excitement through the bass. In Follow The Light, CeeLo’s voice is underpinned by a regimented bass, and it sounds similarly energetic; rich in textured sass. But while each musical strand sounds majestic in isolation, they aren’t being particularly well interwoven. British Sea Power is a band known for its layered, ambient and detailed soundscapes, but the performance here is not meticulously cohesive.
