Our Take

The Campfire Cascade is a total bass monster. If you love a thick powerful low-end coupled with judicious amounts of detail and clarity, you need to hear it.

From Campfire

Cascade is a culmination of a 3 year engineering effort to bring our signature sound to a headphone. The result is a portable, closed-back headphone that sounds and performs like it’s open. Even better; it has the unique sound you expect from a Campfire Audio headphone.

42mm Beryllium PVD Driver

Cascade delivers exceptional musicality and openness. It has a soundstage that expands well beyond the listening space. It possesses sonic traits not found in typical ‘closed-back’ headphone designs.

Specially crafted custom drivers are at the heart of Cascade. Powerful and impactful sound with excellent speed and micro detail retrieval. Superior highs extend over precise and controlled bass notes.

Premium Materials, Durable Build

Creating a portable audiophile headphone requires using materials that are up for the job. Light weight forged and machined aluminum cups paired with stainless steel components. This provides added strength in the places where you need it most.

Premium sheepskin ear pads are not only comfortable, but they provide excellent isolation. Listen to your favorite track on the bus without disturbing your fellow passengers. Escape office boredom without complaints.

Campfire Audio Cascade

Your HiFi Companion

Designed with portable use in mind, Cascade is a durable headphone for use at home and on the go. The more you listen, the more you’ll find you’ll want to keep it with you, where ever that might be.

Cascade has excellent high-frequency extension; cymbals sparkle and expand on a wide soundstage. Mids are clear and uncolored. The bass response is special; rich in texture and well defined. All qualities you won’t find in a typical closed back design.


  • Premium Select Materials. We wanted to be sure our first headphone was as good as the earphones we make. Close attention to each component is critical to achieving this goal. The headband, joints, and pivot are all made of stainless steel. This makes the traditionally weakest parts of a headphone the strongest. The cups and hanger arms are aluminum; cast and then machined to reduce weight. Our headphone pads are soft sheepskin, attached via magnets and replaceable. Each element’s design is there to improve your ownership experience.
  • Detachable Cable. Cables are where we started with ALO audio so we know the importance of including an awesome cable. That is why we include our acclaimed Litz cable with Cascade. It has the same conductor design and materials as the Litz cable included with each of our earphones. Here we’ve added a special cloth jacket to the cable. It minimizes microphonics and adds a level of durability to the cable for headphone use.
  • Designed for Portable. Cascade is the headphone that we wanted while traveling. It folds up to a compact size and is an isolated closed-back design. It sounds excellent with your portable DAP or phone. And it scales with ease in your home set-up.
