Supporting the SEAQUAL® INITIATIVE

Upcycled Marine Plastic in the form of SEAQUAL® YARN makes up the rugged outer layer of our Campfire Audio Holocene zipper case. Lume zipper and plaque provide exceptional glow performance, while the new smooth pulling plastic tooth zipper offers a superior experience.

Each case pattern design is unique, and truly one of a kind. Our ‘Epoch’ color palette ranges from rainforest greens to aquatic blues. Mysterious geometric shapes float freely and collide in unexpected ways. These are fun cases that protect your earphones and give you something fun to enjoy.

Cable Glow Up

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. The result of our overmolded ear-hook design is a lightweight cable that is a pleasure to use every day!

Its Glow Time

Lights out to watch it glow

Glow-in-the-dark elements bring some added fun to Holocene’s look – the Campfire Audio inlaid logo, the MMCX and 3.5mm overmolds, and details of the Epoch Zipper case all glow.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Holocene is truly reference audiophile quality IEMs. Upgrade with “balanced Super Smokey Cables” and something magical occurs. I’m a critical listener who looks for flaws and appreciates outstanding performance. There are no flaws – anywhere, only flawless sonic beauty. Why? The soundstage is big and realistic, as though you are standing among the musicians. The low-end is tight, accurate and with disciplined power. The mid-range is full and strikingly amazing. The high-end is perfect. Each range works together as one. Each note in all 12 octaves are seamless, accurate and flow together perfectly. The spatial imagery is exact. You are there! This is my 3rd pair of CA IEMs. The Holocene IEMs with the balanced 4.4mm Super Smokey cable are the finest in audio reproduction I know. For anyone quick to criticize, please try it for yourself first. I am delighted to own these amazing IEMs. Thank you Campfire Audio. – Richard Hawthorne
