Portland-based Campfire Audio has been making a name for itself with its handmade and innovative range of high-end IEMs (in-ear monitors). The company has a reputation for producing superb earphones for professional use, and now the company’s long-awaited Trifecta IEM has been announced.
With the Trifecta, Campfire Audio is not just announcing a new IEM; the launch of Trifecta also marks the beginning of a new era in the high-end earphone market. Restricted to just 333 units worldwide, the Trifecta is designed to push the boundaries of how humans experience audio. By using three full-range 10mm custom dynamic drivers set in an optically clear Nylon housing, users can see the inner workings of the IEMs.
The three dynamic drivers face one another in an equilateral triangle formation, combining the three units into a single voice that Campfire claims creates a uniquely lush and powerful sound. Each gold-plated dynamic driver features high-purity copper and pure silver conductors, slotting into Trifecta’s lightweight and comfortable triangular housing. Campfire says that Trifecta will astound listeners and immerse them in the music the moment the IEMs are unboxed.
The cables supplied with Trifecta are a new addition to Campfire Audio’s IEM range. Three cables are included with Trifecta and all employ Campfire’s Time Stream Cable design which uses silver-plated copper conductors with Berylium copper MMCX connectors. There’s a choice of 2.5mm balanced, 3.5mm stereo and Pentaconn 4.4mm balanced terminations, so almost every type of use is covered.
Campfire Audio claims that Trifecta offers a holistic listening experience because every stage of using the product matters. The packaging includes a unique presentation box created by the Campfire team at their Portland, Oregon, workshop.
Pricing and Availability: The Campfire Audio Trifecta IEMs are available now and limited to a production run of just 333 units worldwide. The price is $3,375 / £3,399.
