    Campfire Dorado 2020

    I apologise, I should have been more clear. I was referring to the people who mistook the Animus review for Crinacle and went along with it. None of it was directed at you as you were only giving your opinion on the matter and knew that the reviewer was not Crinacle. I’m sorry for that.

    Campfire - Solaris

    This could be a possible explanation to the unit variance found last year.

    SONY IER-Z1R

    Oops I misread. I feel their midbass is a little above neutral but not by a lot. you might want to ask those who actually own the Z1r to weigh in on this as I have only listened to them for short listening sessions :)

    Shure SE535: Reviews and First Impressions Thread

    Do you have any preferred sound signature? I like the fiio fh5, they have good tonality and a fun sound signature. The bass slams with good impact extends very deep, which is very rare at that price range. If you want clarity and details, you can go for the ety er 4xr or the massdrop plus.

    Shure SE535: Reviews and First Impressions Thread

    I think they are quite outdated. Crinacle ranks them as C ranking, and says this "Tonally dead. One-note bass. No treble worth mentioning." Maybe they will be a good buy for $200...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    On crinacle's subreddit, I heard rumours that the distributor at camjam mentioned a 7 driver, 1000 limited edition, black andromeda coming soon for a few hundred extra. Is this true?

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    I think they tried to cater to the bass heads with the V2. But problem is, the bass overwhelms everything. I can see only a small portion of the market enjoying these. I don't think they should market it as V2, maybe market it as "bass edition" because it certainly isn't a upgrade from V1 (it's...

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    Agreed. The IOs are actually very capable sounding iems ruined by the middle finger midrange spike. IMO if Campfire releases the IO V2 with the fixed midrange, it'll be a giant killer and even a mini andromeda

    Campfire Audio IO

    I have listened to these more in-depth and here are my updated impressions. I listened to them on my Samsung S9+ on loud volume, and with my large Spinfit tips which gives me excellent isolation and bass seal. To sum it up, I feel that the IOs are an otherwise excellent iem let down by a...

    Campfire Audio IO

    I listened to these, and here are my impressions First impression: absolute crap! I can immediately hear that the tonality is very off. The vocals sound artificially boosted and the treble seems to have an artificial lift somewhere. This results in a bright sound that sounds terrible. The bass...

    closed headphones that do not leak sound

    The ATH MSR7 have very good clamping force, meaning they will cup your ears tightly. Little to no sound will leak https://eu.audio-technica.com/ATH-MSR7

    Is it just me, or does the nozzles look longer as compared to the Andromedas?

    SONY IER-Z1R

    From his subreddit: Not-so-initial impressions: Sub-bass focus; midbass is punchy if a little extended in the decay. Could use some extra reduction in the midbass but that’s nitpicking. Imaging is still stellar; wide and spacious soundstage, relatively accurate instrument placement (with the...

    SONY IER-Z1R

    I have not tried the Z1R, but I do hope they meet the very high expectations that I got from reading Crinacle's reviews. So far, in terms of the new TOTL hybrids, the Solaris doesn't give me the wow factor when I listen to them (coming from Andro user). The Jomo Trinity brass, on the other...

    SONY IER-Z1R

    I looked at Crinacle's graphs last year (product demo) and this year (after product release). They looked identical with no changes. This is what someone posted on reddit: "The people on Head-Fi can't read between the lines and are overly trusting of manufacturers. When an industry rep at a...

    Campfire - Solaris

    It is not just Crinacle, others here in Singapore have heard the 3 different samples and found that they sound different. They also measure differently. Crinacle has measured each of the 3 samples at least 4 times too. I feel sorry for Crinacle. He posted his findings and now the head fi...

    I nominate the UM 3DD-Ti I nominate the UM 3DD-Ti for the best of the best award. They are a force of nature. God modeled the Himalayans after the 3DD-Ti graph.

    Campfire - Solaris

    I tried them, and I still prefer my Andromedas. The solaris have better bass extension, rumble and impact which really makes the music engaging. It has a wider soundstage too and guitars sound sharper. However, the highs sound harsher and the female vocals sound hollow at times and not as sweet...

    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    I think that shure iems have become outdated and have poor price/performance ratios compared to today's offerings. I think that the sonys are more technically capable.

    Thank you for your responses! I saw Crinacle' measurements and it looked terrible with those awful peaks, so I was sceptical. Then again, I haven't heard it in person yet so I am just saying this based on the graph. Thank you!

    Anyone has impressions on the 3DD Ti? I saw the frequency response graph and it looked really bad, just wanted to make sure if it wasn't exaggerated because I have been eyeing these for a while now
