The brand new revision of Campfire's flagship is here. Solaris 2020 is a true culmination of technological refinement, passion, and art. Ken Ball and his team at Campfire have delivered an IEM so masterfully designed, built, and tuned, that we consider the Solaris to be amongst the top 3 earphones ever made. No hyperbole here, people. The Solaris stuns. Read our full review.
From Campfire Audio
Re-engineering our critically acclaimed Solaris was no small feat. Maintaining its signature sound, but changing its exterior shape was a substantial challenge. The result of that undertaking is an exciting new earphone that captures that ‘Solaris-Sound’ in a size more people can enjoy.
Explosive musical realism with deft execution. Now 20% smaller.
Holographic presentation. Intimate detail retrieval. Soaring highs, engaging mids and impactful bass. Music sounds like music with lifelike performances, superior layering and unbelievable imaging. The same critically acclaimed sonic character of Solaris and Solaris SE is shared in the Solaris 2020.
Beyond the size reduction of Solaris 2020, it is also the first Solaris to incorporate our Solid-Body acoustic design. This gives us more control of the interplay of the drivers, which results in a cleaner and more refined sound.
Mixing from Our Palate of Audio Technologies, a Sonic Masterpiece Emerged
By incorporating our many individual acoustic technologies into Solaris 2020 we were able to create an exceptional earphone. Solaris is a hybrid design, blending the best of the balanced armature performance with the physicality of dynamic drivers. It features 2 custom balanced armature drivers paired with our T.A.E.C for extended highs, without sibilance or fatigue. A larger single rear-ported balanced armature driver provides rich delivery of mid frequencies. A specially tuned version of our 10mm A.D.L.C. dynamic driver, optimized with our Polarity Tuned Chamber, anchors the sonic performance with deeply engaging mid-frequency tonality and visceral bass response.
Crafted by Hand from Years of Experience
Each pair of Solaris 2020 is hand assembled in our Portland, Oregon workshop. Our team of skilled builders pours their time and attention into each earphone they construct. The attention to detail paid throughout the process ensures your Solaris will be a world-class earphone unlike any other.
Introducing Super Smoky Litz – an Exceptional Earphone Deserves an Exceptional Cable
Our new Super Smoky Litz cable is made from four large conductors of Silver-plated Copper Litz wire. Each conductor is individually comprised of a selected set of particular diameter strands. The Super Smoky Litz cable is the perfect balance of physical gauge and performance.
The cable is terminated with our custom beryllium/copper MMCX connectors and over-molded 3.5mm plug. This cable brings out the best in Solaris.
Exclusive Campfire Audio Technology:
Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber (T.A.E.C.)™
Our Polarity Tuned Chamber allows us to optimize the sonic performance of our dynamic drivers. Deploying particular volume cavities, both in front of and behind our dynamic driver, we can pull bigger sounds from smaller drivers. This also gives us the ability, in the case of hybrid designs, to specifically target the driver performance.
Polarity Tuned Chamber
Our new solid body design provides optimized acoustic performance by incorporating the tuning chambers of the earphone directly into the final earphone print.
3D Optimized Acoustic Construction
Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. Solaris features an acoustically optimized interior model that allows each driver to deliver the very best sound quality. When heard together, the drivers offer a seamless musical experience as a result of this process.
