In 2015, Campfire Audio was the first company to introduce a ceramic body earphone with the original Lyra. With our new 2020 Vega and Dorado, we’ve returned to this excellent material.  

Ceramic is a dense material. That’s part of its appeal when designing an earphone. The density pairs well with dynamic drivers because it doesn’t let vibrations run wild. It also has the added benefit of ownership by being extremely scratch resistant. 

The port on the face of the earphone vents the rear of the dynamic driver. An acoustic dampener further regulates the airflow to optimize the sonic performance of the dynamic driver.

Our ceramic shells get their strength through a sintering process. Two days are spent at 600 degrees, followed by three days at 1200 degrees. This extended exposure to high heat dramatically reduces the parts’ size and increases their density as a result.

The shells then spend up to 3 days in a tumbler along with small alumina stones and water. This polishing process gives them their attractive high gloss surface finish.

Cohesive

‘Simple’ sounds good.

Vega’s acoustic design springs from a relatively simple philosophy; use the best components possible and maximize their abilities. There isn’t a cross-over or other electronic clutter in the signal path to inhibit the driver’s musical performance. There are high purity conductors from our custom Beryllium Copper MMCX connector to the driver and back again. The simplicity of the design is its strength and what Vega 2020 exceptionally coherent. Vega combines refinement with utility.  It is an earphone that works across genre and recording. It is as forgiving and enjoyable to listen to streaming audio and lower quality recordings as it is rewarding when given a full-fledged hi-fi track from a dedicated player.
