    Intro to HiFi

    Sonic Purity

    Orion’s design integrates single balanced armature drivers into a machined aluminum enclosure. 

    Less is more.

    Orion exemplifies a ‘less is more’ philosophy of audio.  The sonic quality and range of this disarmingly simple earphone will elevate your daily listening to a new level of enjoyment.

    Sounds like it should.

    Reducing the elements of our earphone construction we discovered a remarkable sounding earphone.  Orion has top-to-bottom coherence reminiscent of dynamic driver.  With the detail and clarity only possible with balanced armature drivers.

    Full Range Performance

    A Natural Reference

    You will get a kick out of the Orion.

    Orion’s full range balanced armature driver delivers a clean and naturally full sound.

    Flat Out Good

    It has high frequency extension that makes symbols sparkle without sibilance. Mids appear clear, upfront and uncolored.  And the bass is punchy, tightly controlled and deeply engaging.

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.

    “Vocals on the Orion are clear and sibilant free (…) a nice reference choice for long listening or laid back listening.”

    By marcusd

    – Headfonics.com

    “The IEM’s are fast & tight but what impressed me most was the soundstage (again something Campfire Audio do very well in their other earphones) its just so damn open sounding.”

    – Audiophile On

    “The order of the day here is resolution, and the Orion serves it up tastefully.”

      An excellent set of in-ears!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.

      Great product!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!
