Our new ‘Smoky Glow’ Litz cable features Silver Plated Copper Litz wire conductors and our popular tangle-resistant twisted cable weave. To compliment our new line of earphones we’ve added new Glow-In-The-Dark overmolds on both the MMCX connectors and the 3.5mm plug.

Campfire Audio Holocene Earbuds Review: Audiophile Quality At Audiophile Prices

While the Campfire Audio Holocene earbuds are simple, they most certainly don’t have a simple quality to them. These earbuds are astonishingly powerful, and can easily compete with some of the higher-end over-ear headphones I have reviewed in the past…

Audio is very balanced with the Holocene earbuds, which is what they were designed to be. That means neither the bass nor the treble are particularly dominant with the overall audio mix. Both are still present in spades, but these aren’t going to overwhelm with booming bass.

    Excellent. Shipping was very fast. So I had quick satisfaction. I paired them with a Plussound x8 series custom bluetooth cable, silver plated copper, type 6 litz cable.
    This powers them very well. The sound is nice and full. Nice separation between mids and highs. Great bass response. A great value. They punch way above their weight class.

  2. Pat Hogg (verified owner)

    Performance is far better than I had even hoped for. The more I ask the more they deliver! So fun. Performance and comfort! I stream Hi Res through Qobuz.

  3. Doge (verified owner)

    They are very detailed, listening to ASMR made it pretty strange to hear the amount of raspyness in their voice. But also need to be paired with a good source, using from my computer audio port had very harsh highs, while my phone with apple adapter sounded much better. It also has a great and wide soundstage, with some depth to them. They deliver a very emotional and engaging listening experience in my opinion. The case is very vibrant in real life, which I wasn’t expecting! And the glow is a nice touch, the coating or whatever makes it glow – lasts for a while! It’s a pretty good duration of glow if that makes sense lol.
