Dorado 2020

Hybrid Hero

Since 2016, Dorado’s original release, we have developed a remarkable series of high-fidelity hybrid IEMs that have gone from niche to popularized as some of the very best in the world.

Dorado 2020 breathes new life into the name and the legacy of the original with a fresh take on its classic hybrid design.  One balanced armature and one dynamic driver. No cross-over, no complications.  We’ve found these distilled pairings reproduce sound more faithfully, with improved resolution and cohesion than those with over-complicated cross-over schemes.

The result is a detailed yet natural sound. They are resolving and emotionally engaging—a true hybrid in design and sonic presentation.

Hi, Hybrid.

Greater than the sum of its parts.

A single balanced armature augments our custom-tuned 10mm A.D.L.C. diaphragm dynamic driver.  Leaving the sparkling highs to the B.A., this dynamic driver is afforded the space to dig in a bit deeper, reach a bit lower, and deliver rich and satisfying bass.  Its vocal delivery is precise and pronounced.  Dorado 2020 is very much a hybrid high fidelity earphone.

Ceramic is Zirconia

Super Sintering Process

In 2015, Campfire Audio was the first company to introduce a ceramic body earphone with the original Lyra. With our new Dorado and Vega, 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. 

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.

With Dorado 2020, we’ve turned to a machined brass spout with a ‘gunmetal grey’ P.V.D. finish.  The conical shape and reduced diameter of the spout provide further tuning enhancements while also improving wear comfort.  The super small balanced armature sits centrally in the spout, and its proximity to the exit gives it an enhanced presence in just the right proportion.

Fun for All

True ‘North of Neutral’

Give yourself the freedom to have fun listening to music again.

Dorado’s acoustic design shares a relatively simple philosophy with Vega; use the best components possible and let them shine. Similar to Vega 2020, there isn’t a cross-over or other electronic clutter in the signal path to endanger the driver’s musical performance.   

Being a hybrid IEM Dorado 2020 is unique from Vega in adding another component; a single high frequency focused balanced armature.  Dorado uses a custom-tuned dynamic driver as well – one that shares similar elements to its full range sibling found in Vega.

Ear Fidelity
Campfire Audio Doroado 2020

Campfire Audio Dorado 2020 is a great IEM for everyone looking for a more fun side of neutral sound. Great set of accessories, perfect build quality and beautiful design will win you over without even listening to them. And when they’ll sing, you’ll be amazed by the amount of fun factor. What’s the most important though – these are not crazy sounding bass monsters, but a very sophisticatedly tuned, fun hi-end pair of IEMs.

Highly recommended.
