Campfire Audio Released Solaris Special Edition

Ken Ball, founder of Campfire Audio is please to announce a special variant of the award winning Solaris IEM from Campfire Audio.

Solaris Special Edition

New 3D printed ceramic acoustic chambers and natural abalone inlaid lids highlight this limited edition release.

Acoustic enhancements unique to this special edition deliver a sound that further refines Solaris’s sonic signature.

Hand-selected natural abalone inlays offer each pair a unique finish.

3D printing in new high density ceramic material has opened the door to exciting new sonic opportunities. Revisiting the acoustic chamber design of Solaris in this new material allowed Campfire Audio to further refine the performance of this critically acclaimed earphone.

Internal geometries have been tweaked to expand the soundstage and subtly elevate the vocal range performance.

Unique selling points of Solaris Special Edition:

4 drivers per side, one x over as usual. The main development is the the ceramic zirconia internal components that we use to deliver the acoustics to your ear. These precision 3d printed parts recently have become available to us and we have been working closely with our 3rd party suppler to engineer these unique parts. While the FREQ has not changed the sound to us in slightly more refined. - Ken Ball

Sonic performance differences?

Same great sound but to me slightly more "focused" sound sig due to the much harder ceramic vs the printed ABS plastic printed media. - Ken Ball
