    I'm curious about it. The problem is that the Andromeda has partially ruined the fun of the hunt for me. It's so good and well-matching my sonic preferences that the urge to "get better" has been strongly diminished.

    I did a lot of testing on the fit, The fit on the Solaris and its design. This design was made to fit a much wider variety ear shapes and depths. The neck is longer than our other IEMs so if you require a deeper insertion this with allow for the main body of the IEM to not rub or cause sore spots, the main body is pulsed back just a bit. This was the main issue a small percentage of customers said that the Andromeda was not a perfect fit. If you do not have a ear shape that requires a slightly or deeper fit then the Solaris will just have more of appearance of it sticking out a little further. Also the sculpting on the body of the shell, I think someone made a funny and called it "ribbed", these sculpting lines are not a issue.

    I agree with your observations, visually it does "look" like it might not fit so well but when people put them in they are almost always like, "oh wow great fit" so we hope this works for more people. Of course as I have said in the past a "universal fit" IEM is almost never fully universal.

    I find the design interesting. I had zero issues with the Atlas and this fit looks like it would be even better to my ears. CA is really doing some progressive stuff these days. Hats off to ya!

    Nice! I like deeper (ha) insertion. The Andromeda was a little too shallow and fell sideways sometimes. I notice the S stayed better in the ears.

    A square case this time, and the super litz cable was legit! Also nice to see Campfire Audio including earphone sleeves as part of the package, which I would've liked to have with the Andros.

    The left/right engravings on the shell are a neat touch too :)

    Interesting... so that's the high/mid BA setup from the Andromeda and the DD from the Atlas? Very interested in seeing how this turns out!

    Great job cfa. I have purchased 3 iem from you. Maybe I will purchase another. This one looks sweet.

    Looks very promising indeed!
    I would have liked an option to get the cable in 2.5 balanced (or 4.4)

    Now I want those first impressions from reviewers @twister6 and @Jackpot77 :wink:

    The Solaris certainly knows how to show off for the camera, that's for sure. It looks great from any angle.

    Thank you! I'm saving the best stuff for an upcoming video. :wink: I think there are going to be a lot of people falling in love with the Solaris in Tokyo this weekend.
