Thank you for sharing this!

The fact Darko used LCD Soundsytem in this review has me sold on one of these, just need to have a listen to them to decide which..

And then I'll have to start commuting back to work more often to justify the purchase :ksc75smile:
Vega is really fun but i think the Dorado is just technically better and more universal, being even more fun. Id go with these

Headfonics just released their review of the new Vega, they compared it to the dorado 2020, Atlas and andromeda 2020.

https://headfonics.com/campfire-audio-vega-2020/
"The resulting tuning for mids instrument and vocals timbre is now euphonic, creamy, and smooth whereas previously the Vega offered a sharper contrasting signature."

This is what I've been looking to find out. I've become so much more sensitive lately, and Atlas now causes my ears to fatigue quite quickly. This wasn't the case two years ago. Looking forward to getting out of this little financial hole and making this necessary upgrade. :D

Hey folks! I'm quite curious about the new Vega. I own Andromeda and Atlas, and while I LOVE the former, I really didn't get along with the Atlas, which I found... too much. Too intense. Too bassy. Too full-bodied (not in a fun way like the K10). Too. Much.

I do like the idea of a single-driver IEM to complement the Andros and K10s. But at this price it better be damn perfect! It'd take a BIG step up from Atlas for me to consider it...
Does it achieve this improvement? From what I read, the sound is more balanced, and with a wider soundstage, which does seem tempting.

My main music style is metal, of all genres.
(one thing: I do not listen to lossless files, listening instead to Spotify on highest quality. Andromeda-levels of clarity is about as good as I'm willing to go, so I am not too worried here)

Just received the Vega 2020 a couple of days ago... :gs1000smile:

form factor 100% great, lightweight, cable is fine, memory wire not too strong....and the isolation is quite good. The ceramic part frightened me a bit...reminds me of... porcelain :santa: but you get used to it. Maybe it's because i'm used to custom iems until now in silicone.

not an sound expert so i'll keep quiet but seems good to me. Bass is great, yet not bleeding into the rest in my opinion....works quite good with techno :beerchug:, and the soundstage, not immense but i don't think about it with instruments being so lively and hearing actually quite a good share of details!

Have to try the classical now....
