Cypherus Audio Products Discussion Thread: CampFred Earbuds, QFred Earbuds, and CAX Golden Reference - Page 22

It must be Yuin G2A?

The high impedance G1A is still sold today while G2A is discontinued. It is my favorite clip on as well.

I have got  6 pairs (ATH, Dunu, Pioneer, 2 Victor/JVC and Yuin G2A) and all are great. But Yuin G2A is just "right" for me. Never tried cheaper ones like Koss...

Honestly I just can't tell by the picture.  Did the G2A have just G2 on them, or is the G2 another version?  Can't remember currently.

I think G1 and G2 were the first versions and G1A & G2A the revised version.
My pair is also G2A.

But enough about Yuin in the Cypherus thread!

Sorry for the late reply.

I haven't used CampFred with a windows computer, only with my DAPs. It can go up to around 70-75% before that happens. On my DAPs with weaker amp I can max the volume without it happening (but it's still a bit too loud for me). On a Windows computer it might be different depending on the hardware in the computer. I suppose you could go over 60% or close to 70% without any problem. The optimal volume for me is the volume I use in a normal room without too much noise around me. I mean medium or low. CampFred is not for blasting music at the highest levels. It's more for enjoying it at a resonable level. If you turn up volume to block outside noise perhaps IEMs is a better solution. When you use earbuds you just have to accept that you cannot get perfect isolation.

How much do you think of a budget DIY earbuds cost? 😁


Anything below the price of tunes ABnormal Edimun and tomahawk is perfect.

My reason that asking about Windows PC is everyone has a nearly same Realtek DAC chip inside our mainboard so when you say 10 (for example), I can try myself with another earphones (with nearly same sensitivity as Campfred) and understand how much that is you say "loud".

 

Anyway I got the point that you said. It seems a typical sound level that everyone should be fine.

How about modifying your clip on? 😁

Now I have tried my CampFreds on my computer. It's a desktop that is around 10 years old (it works well for basic stuff like surfing the web and stuff like that so that's why I keep it). I almost never listen to music on it and the front headphone jack is broken, so I plugged the CampFreds in to the speakers I have got plugged in to the desktop. If I listen to music on the computer it's usually through the speakers. Anyway, I put the volume on the speakers to maximum volume and also on Music Monkey (the software I mainly use for arranging music on my DAPs, or listening to music). Then I adjusted the volume level on the volume icon on the status bar in Windows. At around 40% it started to sound uncomfortable. From 50% the soundstage collapsed and the sound became bright. A strange thing is that the actual volume did not increase from 50% on up. 100% was the same as 50%. It was not too loud for my ears but just uncomfortable to listen to. No earbuds would be worth listening to at this volume for me.

Anyway, this confused me, that the volume from 50% to 100% was the same...

I know that some people like to listen at a very high volume. Most earbuds keep their sound even at those high volumes. CampFred can appear to sort of "break up" at those very high volumes. Otherwise, at more normal listening volumes I find it to be wonderfully organic and analogue sounding.

One person who bought them usually listen at a high volume and he listed the CampFreds for sale very soon after the had received them. He then gave them another listen at a lower, or more medium, volume and then he really started to like them. Now they appear to have become his favorite earbuds.

That would be me :)  

 

Been really impressed by how good the Campfreds sound with older ipods too (namely shuffle 1st gen and nano 1st gen, haven't tried other models)

Coming from mojo and supermini, the sound is less refined/Hifi but still surprisingly special and very enjoyable. 

I love my Campfreds.

They sound great via an iphone, no problem. It was more when fed with more power through Chord mojo or Supermini that I enjoyed them more with lower volume.
