Campfire Audio Cascade
Campfire’s erster großer Kopfhörer. Geschloßener Over-Ear, kompakt und handlich, aber mächtig unter der Haube. Wie immer bei Campfire extrem gut verarbeitet und ohne Kompromisse, was Materialien betrifft (Metall-Gehäuse, Lammleder-Polster etc.). Spielt klanglich in der absoluten Spitzenklasse. Im Segment der kompakten – wirklich mobilen – Over-Ears fast ohne Konkurrenz, was ihm die Tests u.a. in Stereoplay und Ear-In bescheinigen.
42mm Beryllium PVD Driver
Cascade delivers exceptional musicality and openness. It has a soundstage that expands well beyond the listening space. It possesses sonic traits not found in typical ‘closed-back’ headphone designs.
Specially crafted custom drivers are at the heart of Cascade. Powerful and impactful sound with excellent speed and micro detail retrieval. Superior highs extend over precise and controlled bass notes.
Premium Materials, Durable Build
Creating a portable audiophile headphone requires using materials that are up for the job.
Light weight forged and machined aluminum cups paired with stainless steel components. This provides added strength in the places where you need it most.
Premium sheepskin ear pads are not only comfortable, but they provide excellent isolation. Listen to your favorite track on the bus without disturbing your fellow passengers. Escape office boredom without complaints.
Your HiFi Companion
Designed with portable use in mind, Cascade is a durable headphone for use at home and on the go. The more you listen, the more you’ll find you’ll want to keep it with you, where ever that might be.
Cascade has excellent high-frequency extension; cymbals sparkle and expand on a wide soundstage. Mids are clear and uncolored.
The bass response is special; rich in texture and well defined. All qualities you won’t find in a typical closed back design.

Ken started Audio Line Out by hand-building some of the finest portable cables in the world. His efforts grew that company from his basement into ALO audio; of the most well-regarded names in personal audio. A long line of successful amplifiers and cables spread and cemented that reputation, which remains firmly in place today.
Campfire Audio began much in the same way as ALO audio. Experimenting with materials and techniques to create something special for the people who care most about it. And with the same determination the early prototype earphones eventually got great.
We launched the Jupiter, Orion and Lyra in the late Summer of 2015. In the Spring of 2016, we introduced the Nova and Andromeda. The Fall of 2016 we introduced our liquid alloy metal line; Lyra II, Dorado, and Vega. In August 2017 we introduced Polaris. In February 2018 we introduced our first headphone, Cascade. April 2018 we announced Comet and Atlas. Andromeda S was announced in August 2018 in Hong Kong. Our first Equinox Beta program was rolled out at the same time. Solaris was introduced in Tokyo, Japan at the end of October 2018.
As our development continues we refined our original ideas and prototypes into our current model lineup. Each earphone is the culmination of countless iterations, hours of listening and rigorous performance testing.
Rest assured that when you purchase a Campfire Audio earphone, you are the proud owner of a world-class earphone from a company that stands behind its products.
