    INCREDIBLE! Yes, that's the only word I need to use for this review title.I'm not exactly sure where I should start. The Vega is so good that it's hard for me to put a description into proper words. Once I got them securely fitted into my ears, I was immediately blown away by every sound they produce!

    I've been a big fan of music since I was around the age of 5 back in the early '80s. I listen to several different genres of music and I have one of the widest ranges of music taste of anyone you would ever know. The Vega sounds INCREDIBLE no matter which genre I feed into them! They are very easy to drive so you can get excellent results with or without an amp. On my desktop, I use a Creative E5 amp/DAC and I use an LG V20 for my portable listening. The Vega sounds very impressive no matter what they are connected to.

    I'm sorry I can't provide a completely in-depth review but if you get a chance to try the Vega, or buy the Vega, I highly recommend it! You'll likely be very impressed.

    Brilliant.I own several Campfire IEMs--Andromeda, Nova, Lyra I. I am always struck by the way these three IEMs give me something slightly different, some new kind of insight into what I'm listening to. Now Vega. Love at first listen, an entirely different experience that is based on solidity, muscularity and speed, while never being brutish or overbearing or claustrophobic. Yes, the bass hits hard, but detailed information in the mids and treble remain and are effortlessly portrayed. Nothing spirals out of control, and you learn to stop wincing and just trust the Vegas when you're anticipating a messy or complicated or shrill moment from a not-so-well recorded song you know well-they just say "I got this" and move along. Vocals are realistic. The shape of a snare drum is almost visible in front of you. The trebly bite at the top end of a saw wave synth bassline is as intact and detailed as the fundamental note is visceral. The impression I come away with from every Campfire IEM is that there is an editorial point of view behind each one--each intentionally tipped one way or another to bring out something special in the music, each different and each tastefully and expertly tuned. This is an expert's editorial take on fun, a kind of fun that doesn't rely on a signature that is shaped like a letter of the alphabet. This IEM can stand up to a critical ear, but really it just begs for you to engage with the music instead. In my opinion this is an instant classic that will be discussed for a long time. It is not cheap, yet is one of those rare pieces that is still good value.

    Quality IEM upset by disappointing accessoriesI bought my Vega from Headphone Bar over here in Canada and there was quite a bit of delay before I received my order, however it was only a slight inconvenience that I was totally fine with. Upon opening the box, I was immediately very disappointed when I saw the cheap looking carrying case. With further inspection, it was clearly some sort of synthetic leather and should certainly not be paired with a $1299 IEM. I was first exposed to Campfire when I saw my friend's case that came with the Jupiter, and that raw leather case was nothing short of jaws-dropping. I've seen the leather case that came with the Andromeda as well and it is certainly very beautiful compared to the black case I've received. However, when I finally took out the Vegas, I did feel slightly better as they had very high build quality despite being built overseas. But this was only short lived. As I searched for the Comply TX400 tips, I realize they didn't include it anymore like they used to do with the Andromedas. Upon comparing it with the Andromeda, I realized it was more of a side-grade than an upgrade and that was fine with me since I prefer the Vega sound signature much more. However, with a $200 USD price hike, I expected Campfire to at least include the same quality accessories as they used to do...

    Worth it.First off, yes, get the memory foam tips on, and put them in nice and deep. From there, these are just worth every cent. I would honestly say that for me, they have paid for themselves as a health and sanity aid about twice over. I can't really add to what any of the other reviewers have said about sound quality. They are comfortable enough to fall asleep with them in. Totally satisfying and beautiful.

    Campfire Audio Vega — When your Masonic lodge doesn't satisfy you anymore.So you are disappointed in your lodge or in your illuminati society and probably with your present esoteric audio stuff, here it begins...

    For whom are these earphones? For those who finds custom IEM's sound boring (mostly), and for those who wants absolutely best build quality to match sound. Yes you have some alternative for the price, but look at build qualities and amount of technology put into these and other earphones and you will see that winner is here. Putting 8,10,12 and more BA drivers in headphone isn't miracle anymore, but letting sound one, ONE dynamic better than these, Wow, that's it!

    These are not neutral sounding earphones, and believe me or not, that is best thing about them. One small hint, please examine sound and qualities of Dorado&Lyra II, maybe their sound match your preferences better, who knows?
    Now, speed & response, these are amazing, as you have read bass is here, but it's texture and how fast it is here, amazes me every time I put these on.
    Burn-in or time you need to adjust yourself (or both) to sounding was for me relatively short, around 5-10 hours.
    Packaging is so superb, that my wife stole paper box to craft something beautiful.
    One more thing, there are headphones that are very good but aren't forgiving to poor recordings, so you can't listen to your favorite music if it in't top notch recording. These are opposite, clearly they are built to let you enjoy your music. Pair em with Chord Mojo, they will be amazing, Pair em with Fiio X5II they will shine, pair em with your iPhone and they still will be very very good. These are made to be plugged in, to go for hiking with you, to be with you when you are creating something beautiful, meaningful, amazing. These are headphones for your achievements.
    Fit, for first time I spent some time to figure it out how to insert these in my ears (with foamies, spin fits are great but not for me), but now they sit comfortable and I have no issues with fit.
    I'm very happy with this product and can clearly recommend these to anyone who is willing to spend this amount of money on headphones or earphones.
    Btw sorry for my English, I'm from Estonia.

    AmazingI bought the Vega nearly two months ago after reading the rave reviews and impressions on Head-Fi. The Vega sounds wider, more detailed, engaging, and immersive than almost anything I've heard - full-size or regardless. They have redefined what music sounds like to me and how deeply immersed you can become into the music, at times it's not only like you're there where the performance is actually done, but rather it goes deeper and you become part of the music itself. They impress me daily, and I cannot recommend them more highly. I may sound crazy... but try them for yourself and you'll understand.

    Best Bass everCertainly the best IEMs I've used ranging from Etymotic 4s to Shure SE 530 to the Sennheiser IE800. Each was a step up in sound quality, but each wasn't fully satisfying. The sound was cleanest and broadest with the IE800s, but other irritants such as cord noise and difficulty with the ear buds keeping a seal pushed me to look at other IEMs. After a thorough search I'd planned to purchase the Andromeda, but they were on back order. So, I decided to jump up and try the new Vega instead. Initially, I was a concerned by the predominant bass, almost overwhelming the sound. However, after allowing them to burn in over a number of hours, hooking them up to a good DAC/amp (Mojo by Chord) and trying various types of music I was sold on the clarity. Now I look forward to plane rides and sonic bliss. And the bass is simply astonishing.

    Perfect choice.Talk about WOW factor. When I put these on for the first time, I was awestruck by everything. I have never heard IEMs this good! The bass is fast and on point. The range and separation is really clear. Nothing is muddled at all. Only thing holding these back are crappy recordings. You can tell that CampfireAudio cares about their product.
    Word of advise is to use the memory foam tips. The bass and clarity is so much better than the other tips. Get a good seal and get it deep in the ear and you will hear something out of this world!

    A Real Step Forward for IEM'sThe Vega is shockingly good and shockingly different. I spent the last decade using balanced armature IEM's and jumped on the chance to try a fast dynamic that happens to incorporate a bunch of new technologies (inside and out). The Vega has deep bass with presence that hits hard and fast but doesn't interfere with the rest of the music. Vocals sound unbelievably realistic (especially well recorded female vocals). Treble is well extended (and no signs of sibilance after burn-in) and detailed (but not in an etched acid way). The Vega is the closet to feeling like I am at a live performance. The only downside, compared to multi-BA, is that the sound is more intimate, losing some air in the soundstage compared to my other non-CA multi-BA. Plus, it's got diamonds.

    Excellent Earphones! Worth the Price!Lovely earphone, truly a masterpiece. Sound is great, overall balanced among frequencies, but there is a very good punch. I mean, very good bass! Choose the ear tips carefully. It is very important to have a good seal.

    Head-Fi member.Having previously owned all of the Campfire Audio offerings as well as many other so-called top of the line IEM's, I find the Vega to offer a more lifelike presentation of my music than any of my previous phones. Notably, there is a sense of weight and presence to the music that I found lacking in my previous IEM's. Tonal balance and instrumental timbre are accurate and lifelike. I also find the fit to be excellent due to the very small size. I experience no auditory fatigue whatsoever during long listening periods from either fit or sound.

    I am pleased to state that the performance of the Vega is what I have been searching for since the beginning of my headphone journey! Well-done, Campfire!

    So Impressed!!Campfire Audio “Vega”
    First, I want to congratulate Ken and his team for their accomplishment of creating a dynamic driver IEM that sounds so perfect! The Vega is now my favorite in my IEM collection. After burn in I was so impressed and still am that in some passages in different tracks the music gives me goosebumps. To me, that’s how good it is.

    I found it to pair well with my Tera Player, Lotto Paw Gold, Sony A17 and Sansa Clip’s. It’s been fun trying different amp combinations ALO Cv5, Mojo, HA-2, E17, etc. To me, the Vega sounds great even without an amp.

    Kudos to Ken and the ALO/CFA team!

    Now I waiting to receive my Ref 8 IEM cable to celebrate!!!! :)
