Stellar Sound Meets Elegant Design

Hybrid Design: Power and Balance Defined

Black Star seamlessly blends the strengths of dynamic drivers and balanced armatures to create a sound signature characterized by balance and versatility.

In the lineage of Campfire Hybrids (typically known for their bombastic and emotional signatures), BlackStar fills a unique role as a hybrid that highlights a balanced frequency response and an even-handed overall approach.

Phase Harmony Engineering

At Campfire Audio, our philosophy regarding driver treatment informs a considered approach that emphasizes quality over quantity. In the arms-race to fit a higher and higher number of drivers into an earphone, we find that a results-driven technique to driver treatment produces superior results; with less room for pitfalls and ever-expanding variables that can undermine product consistency. 

One of the products of this approach is our Phase Harmony Engineering, that allows us to segment the frequency spectrum and assign these segments to specific drivers, and allows those drivers to apply their strengths to that area. But it doesn’t end there.

By using a combination of precision-engineered driver housings and shell geometry, coupled with custom damping values, we are able to physically shape the tuning and response of the drivers, and further, their interaction with one another.

This driver-to-driver interaction is crucial to eliminating points of potential phase cancellation and creating the intangibles that don’t show on a frequency response curve; imaging, separation, resolution, and soundstage.

Dual Magnetic Dynamic Driver:

Campfire Audio’s new Dual Magnet Dynamic Driver leverages an enhanced magnetic field to create greater efficiency, superior transient response, and precision diaphragm movement. This advanced audiophile transducer is characterized by a deep, emotionally resonant sound signature.

BlackStar utilizes this driver to bring just the right amount of low-end impact that is impeccably balanced with the remainder of the frequency spectrum. Accurate and reserved, while still conveying that dynamic driver sound, the Dual Magnet works in perfect harmony with BlackStar's configuration.

  • BlackStar comes with a premium set of accessories that complement these special IEMs in form and function.
