Campfire Andromeda 2020
A new chapter for a beloved reference.
Featuring all-new Solid-Body acoustic design.
Superbly refined musical presentation.
Andromeda 2020 is an exciting new chapter for one of our most beloved earphones. Updating an earphone as a beloved as Andromeda is not a task we take lightly. But give it a listen, and you’ll be glad we did.
Our new Solid-Body design, first explored in our custom fit products, is now enhancing our new Universal Fit line. This approach brings a new level of control to our acoustic design. You’ll enjoy a refined musical presentation, with clarity and resolution that can’t be missed.
The Inside Magic
Solid-Body interior delivers appreciable Sonic Improvements
While looking very much like previous versions of Andromeda, maintaining its classic angular silhouette and emerald-green finish, Andromeda 2020 is very different on the inside.
A single printed body now houses all of Andromeda 2020’s internal components. The interior and exterior spaces and the relationships between them are precisely sculpted to improved sonic performance. And the bonus of having the engineering doing the heavy lifting is fewer moving parts, and fewer moving parts mean reliable reference performance for the life of the earphone.
Pretty Great in Green
Classic look + New Spout
A new spout design keeps its distinctive short collar, but adds our signature grill pattern to keep your earphone debris free.
Zirconium blasted aluminum shells are finished in our classic emerald green anodizing; specially made for Andromeda.
The Case for Cork
Environmentally Friendly Sustainable Material
Our exciting new premium cork protective zipper case is an environmentally friendly update. Sustainably harvested Cork surrounds a substantial and protective rubber barrier that ensures that your earphones will remain safe while in transit. The interior is a thick faux wool lining that preserves the anodized finish of your earphones. Each case is made in Portugal by a small team of skilled craftspeople that share our commitment to quality.
The Cork used for the cases is the outer bark of the Cork Oak Tree (Cork Suberus L), and its extraction is harmless to the tree. The harvest occurs every nine years during the expectable lifetime of the tree (around 150 years). Harvesting the Cork of the tree is fundamental for the sustainability of the cork oak forests. A naturally durable material that feels good to hold in your hand.
Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber (T.A.E.C.)™
Our tuned acoustic expansion chamber technology allows us to deliver extended high frequencies without sibilance or fatigue. We optimize our driver performance by adjusting the volume of space available in front of the driver. This is superior to the typical “Tube+Dampener” system because it provides a direct passage from the driver to your ear, which results in unsurpassed clarity and extension.
Solid Body Design
Patent Pending from Campfire Audio
Our new solid body design provides optimized acoustic performance by incorporating the tuning chambers of the earphone directly into the final earphone print.
3D optimized acoustic construction
Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. Andromeda 2020 features an acoustically optimized interior model that allows each driver to deliver the very best sound quality. When heard together, the drivers offer a seamless musical experience as a result of this process.

What the press is saying:
"Judged objectively, £1,100 for an earphone is absurd. Considered from a different perspective though- a transducer that has an advantage of position and scale that is so great, you need to spend an exponentially greater sum of money to reproduce their output with a conventional speaker- they make more sense."
"Why fix something that isn’t broken? Well, sometimes you don’t know something needs fixing until its fixed. More reliable internal structuring, refined shell design but most important, more controlled, higher resolution sound. One could argue that the differences between the Andromeda 2nd edition and Andromeda 2020 are somewhat marginal. But nonetheless, seasoned ears can tell. And as an owner of the previous Andromeda, I’m really bothered by it."
"The Campfire Audio Andromeda 2020 is an excellent refinement of an already fantastic earphone. I think the changes to the cable, internals, and nozzle are all welcome additions, and it’s a nice touch of them to upgrade the case and packaging to keep things fresh."
"The model earphone that became the standard for quality in consumer listening, is somehow improved. The Andromedas feature a satisfying sound field, crisp and clear. They feature an innovative design and a sleek aesthetic presence that’s comfortable and sustainable. For $1099 you’re not going to find a better IEM."
"The Andromeda 2020 still retains that classic status monitor for me. It is a world-class elbow dip for any audiophile who wants to get something fun to listen to."
Campfire Audio - Andromeda 2020 In-Ear Monitors
I already own CA Jupiter's which I love, but read so many good reviews about Andromeda, that I wanted to hear them for myself. All the reviews were spot on! these bring music to the next level, with detail and clarity....they are perfect!!!! I then purchased Solaris 2020 and then I had the hardest time trying to decide which one I liked better. In the end, I kept the Solaris ONLY because they were sooooo different from the Jupiters which I already own. I really wanted to keep them both but just couldn't justify the cost. I still think when I finish paying for the Solaris, I might go ahead and repurchase the Andromeda...they are THAT GOOD!!!!!
Everyone needs an “Andromeda” in their collection. And even though in ‘21 your “Andromeda” doesn’t have to be THE Andromeda, it sure helps that this one is green.
Very good purchase. Service was fast and efficient.
