The legendary Campfire Audio Andromeda and Solaris are back, and better than ever before!
Fresh off the back of producing their incredible first TWS buds, the Orbit (that we gave an epic 9.7/10 in our review), Campfire Audio has announced a reimagining of their legendary Andromeda and Stellaris IEMs. These new IEMs, though sharing the name of their forebears, have been rebuilt from the ground up incorporating Campfire’s newest technology innovations.
Andromeda ‘Emerald Sea’ and Solaris ‘Stellar Horizon’ earphones will ship with an impressive amount of accessories and newly updated presentation packaging, which Campfire has dubbed an “enhanced ownership experience”. It’s basically just fancy packaging, but damn is it beautiful…
The Andromeda ‘Emerald Sea’ and Solaris ‘Stellar Horizon’ models are both shipped in a completely unique presentation box, crafted individually by the Campfire Audio team in their Portland, Oregon workshop. This presentation box is something that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated – I love the hand that projects from the backplate of the display stand that can hold your earphones.
Included in the accessories bundle for both models are the new Time Stream cables, which feature silver-plated copper conductors with Beryllium copper MMCX connectors. These cables come in three cable types: 2.5mm balanced, 3.5mm stereo, and 4.4mm balanced terminations, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of audio equipment.
Campfire Audio has once again proved that they are not afraid to push boundaries and pour their love and passion for audio and creativity into a brand-new audio experience. These earphones are uniquely designed to transport you to musical bliss in a way that no other earphone can. So, hold tight and get ready for a wild ride with the Andromeda ‘Emerald Sea’ and Solaris ‘Stellar Horizon’ earphones.

Campfire’s Solaris ‘Stellar Horizon’ Quad Hybrid Driver IEM is the latest and most advanced earphone from Campfire Audio. This IEM represents a full re-envisioning of the classic Campfire Audio IEM, capturing the essence of what makes Solaris a legend while simultaneously elevating it to a brand-new horizon.
The Solaris ‘Stellar Horizon’ comes with a new ergonomic shell design, precision machined from brushed stainless steel. Accented by brass fasteners and MMCX capture, creating an elegant and durable shell. A custom gold PVD inlay that contrasts with black, laser-cut acrylic completes the stunning presentation and showcases Campfire’s immaculate build quality.
The new acoustic design is equally impressive, with two new pieces of driver and driver treatment technology. Three custom dual-diaphragm balanced armatures create more output, high-end extension, and less distortion. The 10mm ADLC dynamic driver is surrounded by new Radial Venting, which creates a greater air volume and expands the physical space in which the driver operates. The result is a greater soundstage and more even dynamic driver performance.
The Solaris ‘Stellar Horizon’ Quad Hybrid Driver IEM is an impressive advancement of the classic Campfire Audio IEM. With its new ergonomic shell design, advanced acoustic components, and unparalleled sound quality, this new Solaris looks out of this world.
