Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    We do not speak of them (lest the masters beat us).

    BA drivers are very sensitive to humidity and steam. Getting humid in there will significantly affect the sound.

    Then what the hell am I supposed to swim in?

    Is the standard case of the Andromeda good for the humidity and steam? Or should I buy the Dry Cuddy?

    To keep your Andromeda nice and dry, you can simply grab a small packet of silica gel and put it in the stock case together with the Andromeda. This will take up some of the humid in the Andromeda when you are wearing it daily

    Thank you for the reply.

    But if the Andromeda takes humidity, are the IEM just broken?
     
  7. Gavin C4
    Humid will enter the IEM through the boar where you listen to. The IEM is not broken.

    Humid is in the air, it will flow in naturally. It is usually in the form of sweat in your ears.

    So I could "repair" the IEM from humidity if these enters into the boar...?

    A packet of silica gel will do the work. Or leave it in a room with air-con.

    Does someone tried the Campfire Audio Litz Lightning Cable and compared it with the Apple Headphone Adapter (DAC)? How is the audio quality difference?
     
  11. Gavin C4
    The difference would mostly be due to a difference in output impedance.
     
  12. phiemon
    What does this concrete means? Better quality for the Litz Cable? How, and how "much"?
     
  13. Gavin C4
    Adding an adapter generally will increase the output impedance of the system. The Andromeda is sensitive to output impedance. For the Andromeda, as the output impedance increase, it will sound thinner, less bass. Therefore, using a lighting adapter may result in a thinner sound. But the changes may be very minimal, only your ears can tell whether there is difference.

    The condensation issue with the Andromeda can be annoying, but I've only had a "dead" driver once (on the left side), and after taking them off for a couple of hours things were back to usual. It's one of the downsides to not using acrylic housing. I do keep some silica gel packets in my andro pouch, but I haven't used them so far.
     
  15. Gavin C4
    Why does acrylic housing not have the problem of condensation? Even we have an acrylic housing, moisture will still enter the IEM when we are wearing it.
