    I know I am a little late to the chat, but I am still sad that you can't get the option to customize the silver cable for the atlas.

    I should try. I like it with the Dorado and other deep fitting IEMs.

    That's probably the reason why many companies used squooshy tips at the show. After I bought my Comets I went to another booth to try some of their line of IEMs and they wanted to "wipe off" the silicone tips off the IEMs a previous customer had just used for me to try on.....ewwww! I said "No, that's okay" and I put on the tips that I had just got from Campfire Audio's demo booth to try the Comet's I just bought. So, I take it back....Thank you Campfire Audio for using your squooshy tips at the show! Haahaha.
    I used my Comets with an Ibasso balanced cable into my Shanling, and I think that it sounds great! They definitely can do balanced and reap the benefits from that setup.

    Atlas was nice, same signature as Vega but a bit better, though I still greatly prefer the Andro and not a fan of the new aesthetic either..

    Actually your anecdote points more to the unsanitary nature of foamies versus silicone which can at least be surface cleaned. The squishy nature of foamies would make them more likely to trap contaminants.

    Personally if I were ever in a position where I could attend something like a canjam I'd be bringing a pocket full of inexpensive wide bore silicone tips because of just that ewwww No, that's okay reaction you expressed.

    Getting this thread back on track...I am waiting for my Comet to arrive today. Curious if the controls on the cable introduce any noise. That is one of the reasons I never use that type of cable. Anyone give any feedback on that so far?

    My Comets have just arrived in the UK and on my desk. Only ordered on Thursday, so given that a few of the Campfire team would have been at Canjam all weekend, I'm pretty impressed!

    Had them in for about 30 mins so far (through my ZX300) and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. The amount of body to the signature for a single BA is very good, and they sound natural and more to the point musical, with good clarity for the price range.

    Fit wearing them down is secure, and they isolate really well with foam tips. Initial impressions are very favourable, and I think these things may end up being the sleeper hit of 2018 given the price. Been listening to the Cascade non stop for the last week to get my review of that finished, and the fact that these iems don't sound anaemic compared to that bass monster should probably say everything you need to hear about how well a vented BA can perform in the low end.

    The only thing I can think of that hasn't impressed me is the neck cinch on the included cable - why bother with one when it only goes up about 3 inches before it hits the cable mic?

    Overall though: looking forward to spending some time with these.

    Debating getting a 4.4m MMCX cable from a local UK cable manufacturer this week (less than £100, before anyone weighs in on the cable debate again - the ZX300 balanced implementation just sounds better to me than the SE out). Will hopefully be able to do some A/B/C between that, the Comet stock and the SPC stock from the Vega - can't say I have noticed anything untoward on the ZX300 SE output so far though.

    @MoonAudio do you think the Atlas will work with your Dragons for the SE846? Same connector? Just ordered the Atlas and wondering. Thanks, Paul C; Toronto

    How you compare these with the LZ A4(black+black combination) ,

    Mine are showing they will arrive tomorrow. I'm stoked! I'll test against the A4 although hardly seems like a fair fight with the tuning filters and multiple drivers in the A4.

    Mic placement bothers me a bit. It sits at chest level, a bit too low. Also, it makes the cable chin slider useless. No electrical noise from the cable, physical noise doesn't seem to result from the microphone. I'd prefer it not be a microphone cable in the end though, so I can use the nice cable slider that campfire has.

    I cast my vote to remove the microphone from the island.
