Unencumbered Performance

Less is very much more

Ara is a seven-driver 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 during the development of our custom in-ear monitors.

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 in-ear monitor well suited for the audiophile and reference listener and is an invaluable tool for studio and live musicians.

The Case for Cork

Environmentally Friendly Sustainable Material

Our 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 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.

Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber

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 Printed Interior

Carefully Designed for Optimum Sonic Performance

Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you a superior musical experience from our earphones. The Campfire Audio 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.

    The IEMs are excellent. Very comfortable, fairly light weight and well finished. The sound is perhaps slightly bright, but they are still burning in. They are extremely revealing as well — I like them a lot. The only shortcoming (literally) is the cable. Though very well made, it is very short and ends in a right angle 3.5mm. Obviously designed for portable use (though even too short for that) I can’t imagine using $1300 IEMs for portable use. Given that the connections are MMCX, cables upgrades are hard to find, and Campfire hasn’t been responsive, so I thing I’m forced to use a 3.5mm extension cable — not my first choice. Would have rated these 5 star if the accessories were commensurate with the price.

    Fantastic IEMs. I’ve owned them for about 6 months and they are really the best IEMs I’ve tried. Resolution is excellent, soundstage is quite wide for an IEM, and I’m a big fan of the neutral sound signature because I listen to a lot of rock. Highly recommended if you are in the market for a TOTL reference IEM.
