    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    Roon is great, but you need to understand how it works to make sure it can fit in with your needs and systems. It has fantastic music discovery features, it is a great way to manage multi-room audio at your home if you have roon compatible components (the so-called endpoints), its DSP engine is...

    Campfire Audio New IEM release

    You read my mind. Earlier today I just ordered a peel and stick abalone veneer and a smoked eucalyptus veneer from Etsy to use explore creating my own Solaris 2020 se....I always was a sucker for that SE faceplate.

    Campfire - Solaris

    Everyone’s ears are different. If having the body of the iem more vertical with the cable exiting more horizontally forward, it’s definitely not “wrong”. Whatever way it most comfortably nestles in the hollow of your ear so it isn’t causing pressure points and are able to get the proper...

    Campfire - Solaris

    Not much...most people over the age of about 12 can't hear that high, and if they say they do, they’re probably lying to you If you have a Solaris 2020, based in my case and based on the pictures of Caleb on the campfire audio website, you want the body of the earpiece at close to a 45 degree...

    SOLD Campfire Audio Solaris OG SOLD

    I’m selling my original gold Campfire Audio Solaris. I purchased these new from Campfire Audio when they were announced in November 2018 and have treated them gently since then. They are serial number 00042. The IEMs themselves are in excellent near mint condition with no visible signed of...

    Campfire Audio New IEM release

    Great impressions writeup @ryanjsoo. Aligns exactly with what I have been hearing (although articulated much more precisely than I could muster). I will note that I initially had the exact same impression as you in terms of a slight increase in mid-bass that even things out, perhaps at the...

    Campfire - Solaris

    That picture is actually deceptive. The stem is actually quite several millimeters shorter on the 2020 than the OG. It looks longer from the angle of the photo, but from the other side, it actually extends less far out from the body of the IEM than the OG. The stem on which the ear tip sits...

    Campfire Audio New IEM release

    I don’t think that the Solaris 2020 has a ceramic chamber—the new Internal one piece boot that gives it the so-called solid body design is, I believe, 3D printed plastic. I think the only Solaris with the ceramic chamber is the SE as there is no mention of ceramic in any of the descriptions or...

    Campfire - Solaris

    I can understand emotionally why folks who bought the SE can be disappointed at the new solaris 2020 coming out less than a year after the special edition because your new hotness is no longer the newest hotness. I briefly felt the same way when Solaris came out something like 6 months after...

    NEW - Campfire Comet and Atlas

    The atlas is definitely an underdog iem. I’ve had a pair since they first came out have have kept it and still listen to it regularly despite having gotten a number of other top tier iems since. They’re not my most used iem, but they always put a smile on my face and always surprise me whenever...
