Fast, Articulate, and Unique.
Solid-Body Internal Design Delivers Surprising Performance.
Machined Titanium Shell.
Incorporating a ‘Crossover-less’ driver design with our new Solid-Body acoustic design into a Titanium shell makes for an excellent earphone. Ara has a speed and accuracy to its musical delivery that is exceptional.
Its sound has just the right touch of warmth and richness to recall the best in classic HiFi. It reminds you why listening to earphones can be so much fun.
Less is very much more
Ara is a seven balanced armature design; two high (+T.A.E.C.), one mid, four low. It does not use typical passive electronic components to crossover the drivers. Instead, we shape the driver’s performance by articulating the acoustic properties of our Solid-Body internal chamber design. An approach we first created with during our development of our custom-fit earphones.
At first glance, four bass drivers would suggest a signature with prominent bass. However, the solid sonic grounding of the well-controlled bass drivers provides ample space for the mid and high drivers to shine brightly. Ara is an earphone well suited for the audiophile and reference listener.
Keeping it real in a premium shell
Machined from Grade 2 Titanium billet, Ara’s shell is immediately appealing. Leaving the machined titanium raw lets the natural beauty of the material shine.
Over the life of the earphone, owners will enjoy a changing finish that will only get more interesting with time. Rest assured, your earphone drivers are safe in this finely crafted body.
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. Ara 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.
