Campfire Audio’s New Honeydew Earphones Are A Clear Winner

“Campfire Audio’s Honeydew wired earphones are a delight and were a pleasure to audition. The way they handled dynamic music with verve and energy was infectious. Somehow, they manage to make music more exciting and nuanced but without signs of the distortion that some wireless earbuds produce. They’re especially stable and clear, even at higher volume levels. The over-the-ear fit of the Honeydew is comfortable and perfect for people who like to listen to music while exercising without hearing any of those annoying vibrations that can travel up a cable connection when moving around. The well-balanced sound of the Honeydew will please anyone who likes a bit more warmth is their music. If you love your music, the Honeydew earphones from Campfire Audio are a great way to get more from your favorite tunes.”

CAMPFIRE AUDIO HONEYDEW: SMOOOOOOOOOTH

Overall a quality product with a fun sound, and a worthy opponent in what has become a very congested and competitive market segment. If you want something in this price range with wicked bass in a comfortable, well-appointed package, look no further.

Campfire Audio Honeydew In Ear Monitor Review

The bottom line for you is that if you like a punchy bass, this is for you. The Honeydew’s strength lies in its detailed bass and lower mids response, so much so that you will definitely be reminded if playing a punchy EDM tune. Heavy metal will get your ears vibrating at times. I personally found the sweet spot to be more in the hip hop and rock genres.

Campfire Audio Honeydew Review

I believe the key trait here is not just about the obvious power of the bass but how well the treble interacts with it. This is a subtle treble performance that gives the higher pitching timbre a slight sweetness to it rather than a metallic or harsh tone which can often be the case with classic V-Shaped IEMs. (…) Overall, the Honeydew is all about big fun-sounding casual listening with a tonal coloration that makes it non-fatiguing.

Campfire Audio Honeydew Review

“The Campfire Audio Honeydew earphones are bass-forward in-ear monitors with a cool design and lots of in-ear accessories… the honeydew IEM’s are a strong value for money pair of earphones if the bass is your most important factor to come out of their audio feed. So if you are all about the bass get over to Campfire Audio for some honeydew.”

    I honestly was not expecting too much as I have a pair of the Solaris 2020’s and truly enjoy those. The Solaris have such a full mid-range and great soundstage that it is hard to beat. I would never say these beat my Solaris because it would be wrong to compare, however I wanted something with a little heavier bass profile. To me these Honeydew’s hit such a sweet spot in my hearing landscape and offer a great warm sound with very good detail and clarity. It feels like it is the IEM you want to use when you are either shoegazing, banging your head, or dancing the night away. A whole lot of fun at a reasonable price point.

  2. David Abravanel (verified owner)

    I’ve never heard this kind of punchy quality from a pair of dynamic driver IEMs before – rich and full sound that works especially well for electronic music, but without sacrificing the detail of more mid & high-mid heavy sounds. Definitely an expansive sound, and super comfortable!

  3. Tucker

    I’m so happy I impulse-bought these. I had been using final 3000’s along with AirPods as my primary earbuds and decided to dump the Bluetooth because of RF concerns, and dump the final 3000’s for buds that are more comfortable. These Campfire headphones are exactly what I was hoping for. I’m a bass head so I love the bass. They are very comfortable and light. They offered great isolation without the need to shove them down your earholes. They are nice and smooth and the included cable is very high quality. At this price, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

  4. robh.50

    I’m very happy with my Honeydews. The bass is as described by Campfire, nice and punchy, especially with my beloved electronic music. Connecting them to my Iphone or Ipad with the original Apple DAC’s is a massive sound improvement compared to my iPod-pro’s. With the Red Firefly DAC inbetween, the Honeydew’s really come to life and shine. I can’t start to imagine what the higher end IEM’s like the Vega or Solaris would sound like!

  5. Kyle (verified owner)

    These are my first IEM’s and paired with the THX Onyx playing Apple Music Lossless has been fantastic.

  6. Doge (verified owner)

    Very good value. Highly recommended if you are looking for something to satisfy your music needs but don’t want to shell out much more money.

  7. Teague

    These are super fun and make listening to bass heavy more detailed. You can almost feel the texture of the bass. The mids are noticeably recessed but don’t lack presence, more so lack resolution. The highs are clear but have a darker sound, nowhere near harsh but accurate and present. If you’re looking for something balanced these won’t meet the criteria.

  8. SN

    LOVE these, super fun. These are my first CA iem’s and I am thrilled on how they perform and fit. Deep, punchy bass and they make me smile everytime (that should be the point right?). I wanted a FUN pair of iem’s and these fit the bill. Listening to everything from edm like Utah or Eastern Odyssey to synthpop like Future Islands to The Weeknd and the Honeydews sound great. Get these if you wanna jam and have fun with your music.

  9. Adam

    Great stage monitor!

    I play bass guitar in a rock/punk band and I can fully recommend them as stage monitor. First i was a bit disappointed with the overall frequency, but after about 20 hours the bass emphasis slightly disappeared and now it sounds a bit smoother over the complete frequency range. They fit well for my case and noise cancelling is great. Also the thin but quality cable is perfect for stage, especially when moving around there is no tension or draw to my ears and I immediately forget about wearing them anyway.

    Thanks to campfire for making such a great product.

  10. jl

    Uuuhh, nice one! Had the campfire orion as a daily driver up ’till now and wanted to try out something new with a tad more bass power. Guess i just found the right pair of earbuds to give me that kick. Mind you, no overkill bass – just fine. I usually think left and right before taking the decision to spend this amount of bucks. Absolutely no regrets! Thumbs up (both of them).

  11. AWN

    Non-fatiguing single driver IEM with a flair of headphone soundscape from the 80’s. Nice product for the price.

  12. Obel (verified owner)

    Excellent IEMs. Very engaging sound with rich bass. I am not an audiophile personally but love quality sound. This is an excellent purchase for the money.

    To maximize the capability of these IEMs, I used a parametric EQ, on my Windows PC, with settings by oratory1990. This opened up the IEMs stage and removed a little bass to increase the clarity a bit more without making it fatiguing.

    If you want very fun IEMs that you can listen to for hours on end, these are an excellent choice,

  13. Baran

    Being a metalhead I am enjoying these a little too much. Especially when listening to modern metal or new core kind of stuff, a stupid smile comes to my face sometimes during the drops. Slightly recessed mids make listening easier and longer in my opinion and I am not sure if it is a con when it comes to rock or metal. All frequency range is very clear and present. There has not been a time where I wished there was more mid. This was the first time I purchased a campfire product. And now I am curious what else is there…

  14. Evelyn

    Honeydew is bass heavy, but also very warm. It sounds downward sloping to my ears. These, depending on your tolerance for bass, are super relaxing to my ears. I was straight up addicted to these for a while – still am. They can be fun or relaxing depending on your mood. I can listen to any genre happily on these. LoFi in particular is just so mellow on these, I love it. One album in particular is City Girl’s Neon Impasse.

  15. William

    I almost gave up on my Honeydew due to fit issues. As much as the foams are recommended for CA IEMS, I prefer silicone tips. I tried a slew of tips (SpinFit, Final) but kept opting for smaller ear tips (as small/medium is what I use for other IEMs) for a deeper fit which caused all kinds of suction/seal issues. I decided to try out large silicone tips on a whim, with a very shallow fit (what barely feels like a seal), and ta-da! They’re now my fun go-to IEM for long listening sessions where isolation isn’t a big factor. Super wide sound stage, with some depth/holography/magic going on at times. I really like these for electronic idm/techno/house/dnb music as well as older funk recordings and 90s “boom bap” hip-hop.

  16. Frances Vu (verified owner)

    I’ve gotten so sick of listening to music through Bluetooth earbuds that I recently bought a music player with the intention of buying IEMs that I can plug into it. I used to use my phone for music, but I hate that it doesn’t have a headphone jack and dongles are so ugly that I never even considered them. I love listening to indie rock, alt, folk, and lofi. According to Spotify I also like listening to vapor soul/twitch, though its still not 100% clear to me what that genre is. I’m not an audiophile whatsoever, I just love listening to music that sounds good to me and after I read one reviewers post that stated that lofi is so mellow on these I decided to buy them. They don’t disappoint and I plan to use these as my daily when I don’t want to use my bulky headphones. I can’t stand harsh or bright sounds so these IEMs are perfect for how I like to listen to music.

  17. sebastian eagle (verified owner)

    one of my monitors just fizzed out and didn’t work like it would faded in and out almost like it was the cord but I swapped it into my working right monitors plug and nothing it just stopped all together I’m going to probably need a replacement or something this is very irritating they sounded great and i kept them on low for the most part because they was so full. I was planning on parrying them with my new portable dac luxury and precision w2 but i haven’t even had the chance because one of the monitors stopped all together ahhhhh so upsetting i only used them twice never at the max setting

  18. Sebastian (verified owner)

    no way to edit my last review but there amazing couldn’t ask for a better pair and they was prompt and fast so just really good all around thanks!

  19. William Padget (verified owner)

    Wanted a pair of bass head IEMs, and this was the right choice. I dig the design. Well constructed. The cord is just the right length and weight, and I personally like the ear loop. I’ve worn them for a few hours without any discomfort. The sound is as advertised. They’re probably more balanced than you expect. I’ll use my over-ear open back cans for vocals, but these will be my go-tos for hip-hop/electronic/rock (most genres). Really make the music sound dynamic. Saw a review call the soundstage wide, but not deep, and that’s on point. Kind of a small club feel. If you’re considering these, you already have an idea of what you’re getting, and I highly recommend.

  20. JOSEPH CARDUCCI (verified owner)

    I would like to call myself an audiophile, but, im definitely still a bit of a noob. That being said, I wanted to upgrade my IEMs that I currently had, which was a Fiio FH3. This pair of IEMs is far beyond what I was expecting. The bass in these is fantastic. I primarily listen to all types of EDM, lofi, as well as rock, metal, and maybe a little 90s country if the time calls for it.
    For the money, you absolutely cannot beat these. Bass is spot on, vocals are more than good enough for me, guitar sounds great. Now I’m addicted to campfire audio, and I will be back when I can acquire myself one of the higher models. I’ve already recommended a few individuals to these and I really and hoping they pull the trigger and oder some.

  21. Claus (verified owner)

    I’ve always struggled with earphones. I don’t like the sensation of a sealed fit that you get with tips, but I don’t like the audio quality of non-sealing types. What is really cool about these, in addition to the awesome build and sound quality, is the variety of tips they provide. I personally found that firm but really small tips allow me to insert these fully, and only get a partial seal, which for me is the perfect compromise between my weird aversion to sealing tips, and audio quality. I absolutely love them.
