Campfire Audio - Solaris
Discover a new frontier of sound. Explore excellence in sonic reproduction
Pushing ourselves to discover what is possible, we explored the outer horizon and found something exceptional; Solaris.
Solaris is the summation of our experience creating earphones and the acoustic technologies we’ve developed and discovered along the way. It delivers a sound that is second to none.
Unseen Dimensions of Sound, Technology, and Construction
Holographic presentation. Intimate detail retrieval. Soaring highs, engaging mids and impactful bass. Music sounds like music with lifelike performances, superior layering and unbelievable imaging.
The traditional wall between high end two-channel hi-fi and personal audio just got thinner.
Carefully Considered Creation
Mixing from our palate of audio technologies, a sonic masterpiece emerged.
By incorporating our many individual acoustic technologies into Solaris we were able to create an exceptional earphone. Solaris is a hybrid design, blending the best of the balanced armature performance with the physicality of dynamic drivers. It features 2 custom balanced armature drivers paired with our T.A.E.C for extended highs, without sibilance or fatigue. A larger single rear-ported balanced armature driver provides rich delivery of mid frequencies. A specially tuned version of our 10mm A.D.L.C. dynamic driver, optimized with our Polarity Tuned Chamber, anchors the sonic performance with deeply engaging mid-frequency tonality and visceral bass response.
Constructing a Classic
Crafted by hand from years of experience
Each pair of Solaris is hand assembled in our Portland, Oregon workshop. Our team of skilled builders pours their time and attention into each earphone they construct. The attention to detailed paid throughout the process ensures your Solaris will be a world-class earphone unlike any other.
Introducing Super Litz
An exceptional earphone deserves an exceptional cable
Our new Super Litz cable is made from four large conductors of Silver-plated Copper Litz wire. Each conductor is individually comprised of a selected set of particular diameter strands. The Super Litz cable is the perfect balance of physical gauge and performance.
The cable is terminated with our custom beryllium/copper MMCX connectors and over-molded 3.5mm plug. This cable brings out the best in Solaris.
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.
Polarity Tuned Chamber
Our Polarity Tuned Chamber allows us to optimize the sonic performance of our dynamic drivers. Deploying particular volume cavities, both in front of and behind our dynamic driver, we can pull bigger sounds from smaller drivers. This also gives us the ability, in the case of hybrid designs, to specifically target the driver performance.
3D optimized acoustic construction
Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. Solaris 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:
"Overall, the Solaris is a flagship earphone fully deserving of the title. It looks amazing, it feels amazing, and it sounds amazing. It's one of the few flagships I've used that is fully deserving of the price tag placed on it, and compared to others still it comes across as a bargain. It's the complete package and something you have to experience first hand."
"Overall, the Campfire Audio Solaris combines one of my favorite sound signatures (a sense of clarity with a little bit of a bass bump) with active dynamics and a brilliant soundstage."
