    Anodized Finish

    Zirconium blasted aluminum shells are finished in our signature green anodizing; specially made for Andromeda. 

    Hand Built – Portland OR

    Hand built by expert craftspeople.  Each earphone is created individually, inspected closely and paired tightly.

    Five Driver Design

    Exceptional High Frequencies

    Andromeda utilizes a unique approach to achieve its soaring high frequency response.  Our TAEC system’s high frequency extension is unattainable using conventional techniques.

    Clear and refined high frequencies are produced. Superior micro detail and imaging.

    Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber™

    Dual high frequency drivers discard a traditional ‘tube & damper’ tuning system for our new Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber™ (TAEC).  3-D printed chamber provides the acoustic tuning without compression.  As a result, high frequencies are extended and open, providing an unmatched sonic quality unique to Campfire Audio earphones.

    Fit and Finish

    Anodized Finish

    Andromeda is offered in a signature green anodized finish.

    Zirconium Blast

    The aluminum shells are first expertly blasted with a Zirconium material to achieve a smooth finish.  It also prepares the surface of the shells to more effectively hold the color from the anodizing process.  This way the signature green will remain eye catching for the life of the earphone.

    Custom MMCX

    Our custom Beryllium Copper MMCX eliminates the traditional shortcomings of the connection and harnesses all of its benefits. 

    Beryllium Copper provides a robust mating mechanism that is typcially made from soft brass. This extends the life of compoent and the earphone.

    The extended life of the part makes replacing or upgrading your earphone cable care free because you know this will not wear out the mating pins. The MMCX also give you the ability to spin the earphone a full 360 degrees to find the best fit for your ear.

    Compact Comfort

    The ergonomic shape of the design offers an easy to wear and comfortable fit.  The hard anodized finish makes for a great looking earphone. It is durable and ready to stand up to demanding daily use. The Andromeda’s lightweight design is ideal for all day listening sessions.

    The shells are produced in small batches and inspected individually to insure each body and lid meets our exacting standards. After each part is machined, it is mechanically inspected to be sure the part is within our established parts standards. Each part is then visually inspected for any blemishes. The passing parts are then packed individually into new egg crates, sourced from the local farm.

    “(..) The most important characteristics of Andromeda sound quality is being able to successfully bridge the gap between warm smooth and revealing detailed tonalities, resulting in a perfection of a smooth organic transparent sound with an impressive clarity and retrieval of details.”

    – TheHeadphoneList.com

    “I have tried to plumb the depths of the Andromeda for its many weaknesses and can uncover no glaring faults.  It truly is a work of wonder in this saturated market of multi driver IEMs and TOTL Daps.”

    “The Andromeda has a very high level of musicality combined with a high degree of technical capability right across the board.”

    By marcusd

    – Headfonics.com

    “The Andromeda has an incredibly impressive soundstage, rivalling the absolute top of the industry. Width extends to just beyond my shoulders, height goes up to just beyond the tips of my hair and depth reaches down to just below the back of my jaw. This makes for a highly immersive listening experience, throwing the user into a world of three dimensional sound and music.”

      A delicate beast of aural pleasureThe Andromeda is aptly named. Not just for the sheer size of the earpiece itself, but for the immensity of its sound signature and performance. What I find most appealing is the smooth delivery in the mid-range, with a cool crescendo into crisp and tingly highs. The bass is good, with a little bit of "punch". The sound that emanates into my ear canal is akin to dipping one’s eardrums into a pleasant creek on a warm spring day.
      Another added bonus is the soundstage. I have never heard earbuds that sound so expansive. One of the drawbacks of IEMs over headphones is that they feel more "closed in", but these things make it sound like left/right separation is farther apart. I don't think the soundstage is a make or break thing, but wow... the Andromeda makes it feel like I'm in the MIDDLE of everything, in a whole room.
      The Andromeda are amazing IEMs. Probably the best I've ever heard. Nah. They ARE the best I've heard.

      The best money can buy!I have owned many IEM's, and none come close to these. The guys at Campfire Audiohave truly outdone themselves.

      Upgraded from EtymoticI am impressed beyond words. I have no idea how an IEM could be better.

      I have owned all of the Campfire Audio IEM's except for the Lyra and can say at the beginning of my review that the Andromeda is my favorite. To my ears, it delivers a sense of realism that I have not heard in my many previous higher end devices. It is tonally accurate and has very precise vocal and instrumental timbre. I do not notice spikes or dips at any point in the audio frequency spectrum. I find that the presentation is not "in my face' but rather I get the impression that I am seated a couple rows back in a live performance.

      Build quality is absolutely stunning with the CNC-machined aluminum housing more closely resembling a piece of fine jewelry than an audio component.

      The fit is excellent for me, very comfortable and once I found the tips that provided the best seal, they stay in place regardless of my activity. I am particularly impressed with the treble. While quite detailed and pristine, it is never sibilant unless the sibilance is present in the recording.

      While the Andromeda performs in a stellar manner with all genre's of music I have tried, they are intolerant of shortcomings in the recorded material. They reveal exactly what is presented by the source chain and will also display differences in players or amps used upstream.

      My only reason for deducting one star is that the memory wire used in the really fine supplied cable makes it rather irksome to get the phones in place while also trying to secure the memory wire over-ear as it tends to rotate in the mmcx socket during placement. I do wish the cable would be offered with the option of a non-memory wire cable.

      ALO deserves much credit for bringing such a high-performance device to the crowded high end IEM market!
