Campfire Audio Drops Two Tantalizing Reference IEMs, The $649 Holocene And $549 Mammoth

This week, Campfire Audio continued the sustained growth of its burgeoning product line with two new models, the Holocene and Mammoth IEMs. Both are constructed of Campfire’s iconic aluminum housings and stainless steel spouts accented with glow in the dark elements for more visual appeal. The glow in the dark motif is also carried over to the detachable MMCX braided cable.

The $549 Mammoth, a hybrid design with two custom balanced armature drivers combined with a single 10mm bio-cellulose driver, is tuned for liveliness and excitement.

The $649 Holocene on the other hand, has a triple balanced armature design tuned for more balanced sound with a lot of speed and detail.

As usual, these Campfire Audio earphones come with a nice zippered carrying case, and in the case of the of the Holocene and Mammoth, the case is made up of upcycled ocean plastic.

A New Epoch of Sound: Campfire Audio Announces Holocene and Mammoth, Bringing Audiophile Quality to Consumer Earphones

Mammoth and Holocene earphones give music lovers two new flavors of high-quality listening experience in an evocative glow-in-the-dark package.

Portland, OR, July 5, 2021 — With support for high-quality lossless formats across the major streaming platforms on the rise, music lovers now must rely more than ever on their choice of earphones to deliver on the promise of the next generation of premium listening experiences. Recognizing the need for audiophile-grade sound and quality in a unique, eye-catching package, Campfire Audio has just announced Holocene and Mammoth — two bold new earphone designs that will connect listeners with their favorite artists better than ever before.

Holocene [$649USD] and Mammoth [$549USD] build off Campfire’s legacy of elegant, handcrafted earphones and in-ear monitors by utilizing Campfire’s signature 3D printed acoustic chambers and precision matched drivers to deliver a peerless listening experience in two distinct sonic flavors. Holocene’s sound profile offers an even, balanced frequency response across its entire range, giving listeners exceptional clarity and a high-fidelity representation of their favorite artist’s sonic vision. Mammoth is bold and vibrant, ideally designed to deliver an enhanced listening experience to the person who likes to turn things up and feel the bass, mid, and treble in all the right places.

Ensuring Campfire’s commitment to crafting products that are both robust and refined, each model is machined from aluminum, connected with black tri-lobe screws, finished with a black PVD stainless steel spout, and completed with the company’s custom beryllium MMCX connectors ensuring years of stable performance. Campfire has also given Holocene and Mammoth a unique and striking visual appeal, with integrated glow-in-the-dark elements on the earphones and cable overmolds, giving them a dynamic look after dark.  The units also ship with a custom-designed zipper case made of SEAQUAL® upcycled marine plastic with glow-in-the-dark features and unique patterns on every case.

“When we designed Holocene and Mammoth, we soon discovered each had its unique voice, and both had something special to offer the discerning listener.” said Caleb Rosenau, Vice President of Campfire Audio.

“Holocene gives you all the nuance and detail out of the most layered recordings without intruding on what the artists intended for us to hear.  Its clarity and resolution shine a bright light on your favorite recordings, so you hear more than you ever have before.  Mammoth is exciting, visceral, and simply an enjoyable sonic signature.  You may find yourself turning up the favorite parts of your favorite songs with Mammoth because I certainly did.  Both are going to give you an amazing way to listen and connect with your favorite music in an honest and intimate way.  These are exceptional products, and we’re excited to get these into people’s hands so that they can enjoy them as much as we do.”
