    A Orion has left production after a solid 3+ year run. It was a great earphone and something we may revisit some time in the future.

    AMAGING. This is my first in ear monitor and I am blown away! I came across campfire audio while doing research for a pair of in ear ear monitors. I almost didn’t get them because it was hard to find information about these monitors online. Boy am I glad I purchased these! These are miles ahead of my Bose ear buds! Both the sound and build quality is fantastic. I have absolutely no complaints about the orion. This is a fantastic product!

    I’ve actually had the Orion in-ears for about 6 months now, and they have been simply amazing. I’ve always used headphone amps, currently have a Fiio E12, since I was always listening to music with over ear headphones, such as the Harman Kardon BT. I stopped using in-ears as I was getting infections in my right ear. It turns out I had a bone growth in my ear, called surfers ear, and the blockage was causing infections, more and more frequently as the bone growth enlarged. A while after I healed from surgery I saw the Orion on sale from Headphone Bar. I wanted something neutral sounding, and the price could not be beaten, as the sale essentially allowed me to buy the American price in Canadian dollars.

    At first I did not like the sound of the Orion, distorted easily, both with and without the amp. I then went to strictly lossless and suddenly it was great. I’m quite sure my set has burnt-in over the period I have had them, but it is still almost completely neutral. Bass is quite light, but this does not mean there is no punch on songs that are fairly bassy. There is still distortion on certain songs, but this is not a pair of in ears designed for exaggerated bass, but, rather, for rock, jazz, acoustic, where the music itself is more natural of sorts. Mids are great, lending a live sound to studio recorded albums, and the soundstage is very good for in-ears. Treble is a tad laid back, removing sibilance where is it not wanted, but leaving the sound accurate. Overall, the sound is very nicely balanced, everything is clearly heard, nothing emphasized.

    The build quality is another great area of these in-ears. The housings are durable, not even a scratch on the paint, and I have often tossed them in my bag or jacket pocket without the case. The cable is very good quality, no signs of any wear on it. The cable tangles easily, but I’d rather have tangle instead of the sheathing or connectors breaking. My father has a pair of Noble 3 in-ears, and, frankly, the cable that came with them is embarrassing; there is a chin slider made from hard shrink tubing that I though was for packaging, so I cut it off (wasn’t sliding well for that matter). The housings are also not as well made as the Orions. The sound is comparable to the Orion, with more of a V-shape signature, but for the same price at the time, the Orion is the better buy, and I trust it will outlast other headphones at its price.


    Orion is undoubtably one of the best sounding iems in the market. I personally think that it is better than andromeda. However… the product is not durable enough. I just received my third Orion, and It’s my second time getting them changed. I hope this time they will alright. (took more than two months each time to get them back, since I live outside of the US). Other then that, it’s a great product :)

    I gave 4 stars because there isn’t a 4.5 which is what I feel these headphones are. Build quality is superb frankly the best I’ve seen. My only issue with these ( which really isn’t a issue, it’s just what would make them perfect for me ) is I wish they were slightly warmer with a wider soundstage.

    But I love these headphones plain and simple they’re really really good.

  5. phillipsong123 (verified owner)

    Im a dude who listened to bose, beats, akg, and some shures. I can guarantee this is one of the best earphone I’ve tried so far. Is it worth 350? Hmm.. maybe around 300 but the MIDs are truly amazing. I would have given a 4.5 given from the price but ill give a 5 instead of a 4 because of its quality. The bass is a bit weak even tho I’m not a bass heavy dude. Would I recommend this product? Definitely. Will even try their future product in the future once I have the money :/. Once again amazing sound quality, sucks you inside the music.

    This is my first set of IEMs, and I spent a lot of time researching products to make sure my first buy was a good one. Came across these well reviewed monitors on head-fi, and decided to take a plunge after reading about the high quality neutral signature they delivered (that and they look absolutely amazing and I’m a sucker for Cerakote). Bought these back in February. Pretty sure they have a burn-in and I think mine have done so by now, as I use them every day at work. Paired these up with the right Comply tips and a JDS C5 amplifier and the sound is absolutely fantastic. They’ve maintained a super crisp and highly detailed neutral signature, and I keep discovering new layers in my music I was apparently unable to hear in the past. I love these Orions, and I’m thoroughly convinced this company produces products worthy of their steep asking price. I will be a return customer.

    Headphones sound great with anything you throw at them. Sound is balanced and clear. Headphones themselves give a comfortable light feel. Highly recommended.

  8. Martin

    All my music just sounds great again with these phenomenal IEM‘s! It‘s pure pleasure to plug them in and enjoy any kind of my music collection.

  9. Inntath S. (verified owner)

    Fantastic earphones, all perspective of this item is great. The sound quality, the designs, the overall capability. I have not break in the earphone yet so I believe the sound will get even better overtime and the rubber will be more comfortable to wear. Few things that I wish they add to the cable is option of adjusting volume, musics, and paused functions. Other than that this item is worth its price and even more during the black friday sales.

    This was a good buy despite the price tag. It has a decent build, great sound quality, and it fits snugly in my ears.
