Campfire Audio’s first line of IEMs was released in 2015. You can learn more about our story and view a full chronology of our releases here.
All of our IEMs are conceived, engineered, and assembled by a small, passionate, team in Portland, Oregon. Various parts and accessories for our products are sourced from outside of the United States. All research and design, assembly, frequency testing, quality control, and packaging, are done in-house here in Portland.
Due to the technical limitations of our Portland facility, Cascade, the lone headphone in our lineup, is assembled ethically by a highly specialized company in China, with which we have a long-standing relationship since 2014.
To many that are new to the world of High Fidelity audio, seeing an earphone that costs upwards of $1000 can be a bit of a shock. At Campfire Audio we are committed to creating the absolute best listening experience and performance an earphone can offer. Whether it’s sourcing high-quality machining for outer housings, using custom-designed drivers for each model, or maintaining our US-based design and assembly, all of this coalesces towards achieving this goal. Our pricing is set in order to maintain this commitment and to continue to fuel innovation in our pursuit of exceeding expectations and pushing boundaries.
High-fidelity earphones offer clarity and richness of sound that lower-end earphones are unable to match. When it comes to hearing the intricacies and detail that artists put into a mix, much is lost when listening to cheaper earphones. High-end earphones can create an expansive sense of space and articulation between various instruments/vocals that bring a heightened experience and emotional engagement to the listener.
In addition to offering a superior listening experience, high fidelity earphones, like those made at Campfire Audio, have a build quality and engaging aesthetic that can’t be matched by lower-end models. Superior build quality creates a high level of longevity and durability, while a forward-thinking, engaging aesthetic offers another avenue for connection and appreciation of our products.
IEMs can improve your gaming experience. By creating a greater sense of space and articulation, you’re able to differentiate and spatially track various sounds in your environment. Developers put a lot of effort and resources into sound design, and a great pair of IEMs will reveal the full detail that is available, further immersing you in the experience and giving a leg-up in competitive advantage as well.
IEM is short for in-ear-monitors, sometimes called in-ear headphones, or earphones. They offer studio quality sound to audiophiles and musicians alike. IEMs create isolation by creating a seal within the ear canal; this prevents frequencies, particularly bass, from “escaping” the ear, as well as blocking out a great deal of ambient noise.
Earbuds on the other hand sit within the ear without creating this seal, and are typically lower-quality in overall sound presentation.
Headphones, while sometimes used as a umbrella term for IEMs, earbuds, over-ear headphones, etc., are typically over-ear or on-ear. Headphones range greatly in both build and sound quality aimed at a wide variety of consumer types.
IEMs can absolutely be used for non-professional applications, and can also be enjoyed by those that don’t consider themselves audiophiles. Casual listeners will still notice a substantial improvement in their listening experience by leveling up from consumer grade ear-buds to even entry-level Campfire Audio products. Many are surprised to hear their favorite songs through IEMs and to hear previously unheard details revealed in high resolution.
IEM preference, like music itself, is going to be very subjective. Some people favor one sonic signature over another, for instance, some might prefer a sparkling high-end with tight reserved bass, while others may want heavy, punchy bass with smooth, restrained, high and mid response. Similarly, certain IEMs will pair better certain genres of music as well.
