The weight of our stainless steel earphones in your hand feels good. The durability of stainless steel gives you peace of mind in daily use, knowing these are going to last.

New A.D.L.C. Diaphragm Dynamic Driver

Expanding on the continued critical and commerical success of Vega, we returned to an A.D.L.C. diaphragm design for Atlas and super sized it to a new 10mm driver; up from 8.5mm found in Vega.

For a quick background, A.D.L.C. (Amorphous Diamond-Like Carbon) is the hybrid of diamond and graphite carbon. It is a non-crystalline diamond. It is a material that has low density and high rigidity, important factors when considering diaphragm materials.

In designing a dynamic driver, the diaphragm material used should be as rigid as possible to provide a wider range of frequency responses and lower distortion. Additionally, the density of the diaphragm material should also be as low as possible in order to increase fidelity.

The 10mm A.D.L.C. diaphragm driver at the heart of Atlas achieves these goals; superior fidelity, excellent frequency response, and low distortion.

3D Modeled Awesomeness

Tuning a high fidelity earphone is both an art and a science. To make something really special many critical factors need to intersect perfectly. This is why we choose to design and iterate with 3D modeled parts and take those parts into our final builds. It gives us an unprecedented level of control to capture the sound we’re trying to achieve. We think you’ll appreciate this refinement when you hear them yourself.


New Pure Silver Cable

We’ve created an all new pure silver cable for Atlas that allows you to get the very best sound possible from your earphone, right out of the box. The pure silver conductors provide additional resolution and refinement to an already exceptional sound.

This cable is also wound with a twist that reduces tangling and microphonics improving your daily experience with Atlas.

Highlights

Stainless Steel Body

Our new stainless steel earphone bodies are drop forged and then CNC machined before being hand polished to a mirror finish.

MMCX designed to last

Our custom Beryllium Copper MMCX eliminates the traditional shortcomings of the connection and harnesses all of its benefits. Beryllium Copper provides a robust mating mechanism; one that is typcially made from soft brass. This selection of a harder material extends the life of component and the earphone.

Individually Crafted

Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. We test and pair each individual earphone, Left and Right, to establish its conformity to our firmly established tuning and performance criteria.

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Best bass quality and extension I’ve heard on any headphone, IEM or full sized. Hits harder and deeper than the LCD-3, with an intimate and full mid range, and crisp high end with improved clarity from the Vega. Build quality and new cable are both excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Wonderfully balanced, harmonious sound (no equalizer needed!). Bass, mids and treble are perfectly matched. Clear, brilliant, perfectly audible sound. Deep black basses, harmonious mids, clear highs. Is able to play very quietly as well as very loud. Requires relatively little amplifier power (player: Hidizs AP 100, 24 bit / 196 kHz).
    This review refers to a brand new device, which is certainly improved by a longer insertion phase.
    Hard to believe that it is “only” an IE.

    After spending some time listening to Atlas (about 100 hours), I have to say that CA managed to set a new high bar for a single dynamic driver IEMs. As a fan of Vegas bass, I was satisfied from the first moment, that deep and full lows had remained (the whole sound is maybe slightly less bassy due to Atlas’s extension in higher frequencies over Vegas and a bigger soundstage, however you can find that “Vegas great bass” is still present). It’s always hard task for a single DD to manage clearly present highs, mids, vocals, classical instruments, etc., however this is the moment when Atlas really shine and become better than other single DDs competition. You will find some specific differences in comparison to well-made top notch multi BA, but for me Atlas has definitely fulfilled my expectations :-)

    Nice bass and treble extension without sacrificing mids. Vocals particularly satisfying and vivid along with most instruments. A new bar set in soundstage – being bigger and more immersive. Playing 24bit/ 196 kHz content and matched with SXC 8 there is a level of musical coherence I’ve not heard before from any IEM. Build quality second to none.

    Campfire ATLAS is just awesome !!
    It has been about 2 months with good break-in time. My system is HQPlayer (with Nvidia Quadro to supply enough CUDA) to convert all music sources to DSD256 and stream to DAC PLAYBACK Design’s Merlot and Roon for music library management. I am using custom made IEM cable from Norne the SilvergardeSCIEM plus Furutech’s Rhodium plated terminals. The cable is very important to deliver all musical energy to ATLAS evenly. I am using pure siver Litz + OCC7 copper Litz to make hybrid 12 conductors total. So the cable is little thick. All terminals are Rhodium plated. I am using JCAT USB2.0 and Oyaide Continental 5s USB cable.
    ATLAS’s bass is very deep and with rich sonic resolution for each note well balanced. I can even feel the real natural power of timpani or low key piano or harp. I always wanted to enjoy a strong and natural sound of bass crawling to the floor with steadiness and presence to support higher tones. Well ATLAS does that. I compared ATLAS with Shure SE846. SE846 gave good bass presence but it lacks steadiness and resolution to compare to ALTAS.
    ATLAS midrange is very soft and well balanced. Purity and harmony with other instruments are especially wonderful. Vocals are very natural now. I always experienced the vocal was limited to crumble or too sharp in my previous earphones. ALTAS gives me very new experience to comfort my ear drums without worries of volume. Loud volumes are very detailed also. It is very unique and convenient also.
    The high range of ATLAS is no problem. People would worry about shortage of high tones because it is one full range diaphragm. But when I compare to SE846 (quad diaphragms) which gives very good high’s, I found ATLAS is better because most of high frequency was very detailed with no crumbling or mixed sound.
    I will enjoy ATLAS for very long time without worries of sufficient volume to make unwanted noise. My DAC is very nicely working to play CD or HiRes Flac or any DSD very natural so that I could carefully compare ALTAS with other earphones. I thought the price was bit high but now I can say it does not matter because ATLAS gives me freedom and make me present to concert hall. I can feel the wind of instruments literally which I was very surprised.
    One thing I don’t like is that ALTAS is hardly stay in my ear canals because of my think cable. I made silver wire to hold ALTAS in my ears. SE846 cable has stiff ending near IEM terminal which ATLAS can use.

    Amazing sound! Great bass, mids, and the treble is detailed without being harsh. Great all arounder for fun music listening. Pretty much perfect!

    I recently had the chance of attending the RMAF headphone convention here in Denver. I went with the intention of getting the best in ear headphones I could afford. For those who don’t know, RMAF/Canjam is a convention where many companies come to demo their gear. You can just sit there for hours listening to whatever you want. I was there for over 6 hours on a Saturday sampling the super-high end IEMs primarily. I probably tried 20+ high end IEMs from a variety of companies, some costing in the multiple thousands of dollars and long story short, I found the Atlas to be one of the best on the market. It blows my mind how insanely good these sound – Ken and the folks at Campfire have done something truly remarkable with a single driver IEM which punches well outside of it’s weight class. No joke, to me this thing sounds better than some competitor IEMs which sport 8-10 drivers each. It was so good that I bought a pair right then and there.

    The bass response on the Atlas, is for me, perfect. I like my bass, but I also like a bit of clarity in the mid/upper ranges. The bass is extremely visceral on tracks which deserve it. However, it does not bleed into the other frequencies and doesn’t sound bloated. The sub-bass is nuts. The first time I played the track Alone by Kryptic Minds (which I’ve heard before countless times) I actually said “holy ****!” out-loud. The tuning is such that there is highly impactful bass while simultaneously, 3D mid/high notes that are somehow separated in a way I didn’t think possible on a single DD. I’ve compared the Atlas to the Vega and for me, the Atlas sounds like the Vega, but with more clarity and a surprising bump in the low end as well. The soundstage is quite wide, it seems to extend out beyond my head and sometimes I forget that such a huge sound is coming from these IEMs. The mids are slightly recessed, but pleasing to me. The highs are clear and sparkly without being harsh.

    Build quality is among the best in the industry. These things are built like a tank. When I was first trying them out I was surprised how well they fit, they look much bigger in the pictures. With the right tips, these go alot deeper into the ear canal than some other CA models. The variety of included tips is great. I like both the foam and the Final Audio tips, which I think I’ve settled on. The way the nozzle is made makes replacing tips super easy and since the whole body is steel you don’t have to worry about breaking it off. The included case is very nice as well, the interior prevents scratching the finish. The included cable is also top notch, it’s very supple and visually pleasing.

    TL;DR: The price to value ratio on the Atlas is amazing. It outperforms the competition by several brackets and is a stunning display of what a single dynamic driver can do. Congrats Ken and Campfire Audio. You’ve made my auditory dreams come true.
