New Cable & New Case

Building from our Silver Plated Copper Litz wire conductors and our popular tangle-resistant twisted cable weave, we’ve added a new stylish Smoky jacket to compliment the unique finish of our new line of earphones. A new light-weight molded ear-hook design replaces the memory wire. The result is a light weight cable that is a pleasure to use everyday.

Our exciting new premium ‘Blue’ leather protective zipper case is an update to our standard earphone cases we’ve used since our launch. Luxurious textured leather surrounds a substantial and protective rubber barrier that ensures that your earphones will remain safe while in transit. The interior is a dense faux wool lining that preserves the anodized finish of your earphones. Each case is made in Portugal by a small team of skilled crafts people that share our commitment to quality.

    Just received them and they’re a treat. I had previously owned Lyra, Comet, and Jupiter but these are my favorites. The sound is musical with a warmth that Jupiter lacked. They won’t be considered reference grade, but for a nice, crunchy sound, these are a great choice. Tons of fun and the new cable is soft but doesn’t feel delicate. I love you, Campfire Audio.

    Really good clear sound with good bass. Not a neutral earphone. Definitely good for today’s music; sounds great with all others. Easy to drive. Love the hybrid factor. Now it’s time to go deeper and get the Solaris!!!

  3. Nick (verified owner)

    Polaris, V. 2, have such an aggressive and fun sound to them its hard to put them away. They have deep, thunderous bass that reaches into your soul and pulsates to the jam your listening to without sounding muddy or bloated. Instead, bass notes and bass tones come forward clearly and make an impact you can feel. Most earphones and headphones with bass heavy sound signatures have a ‘veiled’ sound to them muffling the rest of the music. That is not the case with the Polaris. The Polaris’ sound remains crystal clear amid the thick low end. The high’s sizzle without becoming sibilant. Vocals, high hats, and higher pitches resonate and the mids, though slightly recessed, can still be heard in all their glory. The Polaris delivers a clear, warm, and colorful sound with a ton of depth. If your looking for something that is reference or neutral, these are not for you. But if you’re a basshead looking for a bass heavy earphone that packs a wollop with detail to spare, look no further. You won’t be disappointed.

    I am thoroughly impressed with these earphones. The unboxing experience was just that, an experience. The added accessories and eartips were more than enough to keep the earphones protected and to find the right fit for my ears. This purchase was worth every penny. Everything about Campfire screams class!

  4. Ryan

    Bass was very bloated it was so bloated to the point where I can the metal housing vibrating definitely the worst CA IEM ever

  5. Son

    Bass Bass Bass … big powerful sound that rumbles to the eardrum. complements the andromeda very well in sound signature you need both sadly but if you have the budget for both get the solaris instead. overall the definition of v shape sound signature. nicely done guys !

  6. KING

    Compare to the first version, the vocal is much improved, and the bass also becomes stronger. I am also happy that the price is reduced. Overall, I think the polaris II is a great IEM

  7. atsviper (verified owner)

    If you looking at these, then you probably already have some knowledge so I’ll keep it simple. Are you a basshead? Do you want to feel your body bump? If you want bass without distorting the rest, these are probably the best you can get in this price range. They really are amazing IEM’s. I f**king love these.

  8. Sparky

    TL/DR; The Polaris are somewhat polarizing! If you like thunderous, seismic bass, and generally listen to music with thudding basslines, you’ll like the Polaris. If you don’t like meaty, impactful bass then my goodness, you’ll hate the Polaris.

    You know those old land yachts that people put way too many subwoofers in and drive around rattling neighborhood windows? Yeah, that’s what the Polaris is, but with just enough Dynamat applied to keep the car from rattling itself into oblivion. When you wear them, your head shakes just like the frame of that poor car. Polaris renders deep, slamming bass and lots of it. Beyond having tons of volume, the lower frequencies are rendered with good texture and a warm, meaty tone. This much focus on the low end is a love it or hate it quality, and I personally love it.

    Where Campfire’s tuning expertise shines through is that even with all that rumbly bass, the mids and highs are still quite distinct and aren’t smothered into oblivion. That being said, the low end is the star of the show. The Polaris aren’t incredibly detailed in the mids, and while the T.E.A.C. BA used for the highs does add some pop and sparkle, they lack the detail and accuracy I’d normally associate with balanced armatures.

    As for build quality, the unboxing of the Polaris was an experience, everything arranged neatly and sequentially. The IEMs themselves are thoughtfully designed for comfort, and beautifully machined. The stock cable has a plastic 3.5mm termination which isn’t my favorite, but the cable itself is wonderfully pliable and tangle-free.

    The included carry case is nicely implemented and feels very premium. I hope it weathers with age and becomes beautifully worn. The Polaris also comes with 2-section foam mesh dividers for keeping the two IEMs from knocking against each other in the case and scuffing their anodized finish. This is a nice touch, but it’s fiddly to get them in and out and honestly I just end up shoving the IEMs and cable into the blue leather case without packing the individual monitors away separately.

    I’m giving it a conditional 5 stars, – the bass emphasis makes these not as versatile as a more neutrally-tuned earphone. Golly, the Polaris make the right tracks amazing though. If you don’t listen to music with a kick, I’d steer clear of these, but if you like a rocking out to the right music, these will render it in the funnest way possible.

    All i have to say is wow , i’ve never been so blown away by a pair of IEMs. The build Quality is second to none, they feel like they’re worth way more than what I paid. The sound is spectacular the bass is exactly what i was looking for!

  10. darrinS

    wow! these sound great especially through my DAC. the most comfortable in-ear headphones i have ever used. i can wear them for hours, they stay in place and feel so nice. the blue leather bag is perfect and i really appreciate that they came with so many tips. i easily found the perfect size for me. thank you campfire audio!

  11. Taimur Habib (verified owner)

    I have owned several in-ear headphones made by other companies, some really high-end companies, in the past. The Polaris is, by far, the best earphones I’ve ever encountered. The bass and treble, and the sound quality, are unmatched. How all those great sounds are emanating from earphones of this size, is beyond me. Keep up the good work!

  12. Alex (verified owner)

    These are what i consider to be perfect for mobile use. The bass has tons of authority so you can hear it no matter where you are or what youre doing. The mids are sweet and the highs have shimmer without being piercing. There are also very easy to drive. Of all the headphones ive used with my LG G8 phone, nothing was as easy to drive. 50% volume is ridiculously loud! These things are worth the money no doubt.

So what can I say about the sound from these admittedly expensive hybrid earphones? Well, it’s obvious from pressing the play button that the Polaris earphones have been expertly tuned. For my tastes, the Polaris strike the perfect balance between a superbly controlled and full-on bass with a level of detail in the midrange and treble that allows no detail or nuance in the music to escape.

CAMPFIRE AUDIO POLARIS II: RENEWED AND RELOADED

Running through BT’s “If The Stars Are Eternal Than So Are You And I”, the Polaris II surrounds you within the ethereal effects and dancing sounds while the original Polaris merely places it beside you. Tracks are much more deep and lively with the Polaris II. Imaging is improved too thanks to this extra space, lending the Polaris II to success with gaming. The depth and accuracy of it’s stage, along with excellent layering and separation made this earphone a gem to use when playing intense racing games like Wipeout Omega Collection (special mention goes to the wicked sound track) or competitive shooters like PUBG or Call of Duty.

CAMPFIRE AUDIO POLARIS II: RENEWED AND RELOADED

It turns out that bass clarity and the overall low-end performance of the Polaris 2 earbuds is one of their most outstanding qualities. Bass notes are big, proud, and plummy, but interestingly, their plus size is not compromised by a lack of clarity. There’s a certain warmth to the bass and we’re pleased to say that fast kick drum patterns and rapid fire bass lines still manage to maintain a plentiful of transient attack. The sub-bass can dive all the way down to 5hz, which is ridiculously low. Humans can’t hear much below 30hz, so these earbuds create a sense of feeling the sound. The low-end could easily be compared to the big subwoofers of a well-tuned nightclub system. This makes the Polaris 2 incredible for casual enjoyment, rather than critical listening. They sound bigger and a lot more full-bodied than typical studio reference grade headphones.
