Specially Tuned By Campfire Audio For Astell&Kern
SOLARIS, Campfire Audio's high-end earphones that are highly acclaimed by audiophiles around the globe, are now reborn in collaboration with Astell&Kern. AK SOLARIS X is a culmination of Campfire Audio's technology. Its hybrid system, which integrates a balanced BA driver and an optimised dynamic driver, faithfully conveys Astell&Kern's deep and rich sound.
The custom BA driver designed specifically for the AK SOLARIS X is smaller in size than its predecessor used in existing models, and offers wideband performance. Coupled with Campfire’s patented tuned acoustic expansion chamber (T.A.E.C.) technology, the new driver also offers smooth and extended high frequencies. Another BA driver provides rich delivery of the mid-range frequencies, and the custom 10mm dynamic driver optimised for the Polarity Tuned Chamber reproduces deeper and more refined mid-to-low frequency. Each earphone integrates a 3D Printed Acoustic Chamber to enable the drivers to deliver the highest audio quality possible, creating a natural and accurate sound.
4N Pure Silver Litz Cable
AK SOLARIS X comes with a balanced 2.5mm pure silver cable allowing the earphones to reach their full performance potential. Pure Silver Litz Cable is produced with four 4N (99.99% purity) conductors to offer clearer, extended sounds. The jacket that wraps around each conductor ensures both flexibility and durability. At the same time, it is soft to touch and a practical to use every day.
T.A.E.C. Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber
Our tuned acoustic expansion chamber technology allows us to deliver extended high frequencies without sibilance or fatigue. We optimise our driver performance by adjusting the volume of space available in front of the driver. This is superior to the typical "Tube+Dampener" system because it provides a direct passage from the driver to your ear, which results in unsurpassed clarity extension.
Polarity Tuned Chamber - 3D printed acoustic tuning for dynamic drivers
Our Polarity Tuned Chamber allows us to optimise the sonic performance of our dynamic drivers. Deploying particular volume cavities, both in front of and behind our dynamic driver, we can pull bigger sounds from smaller drivers. This also gives us the ability, in the case of hybrid designs, to specifically target the driver performance.
3D Printed Interior - Carefully designed for optimum sonic performance
Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. Solaris features an acoustically optimised interior model that allows each driver to deliver the very best sound quality. When heard together, the drivers offer a seamless musical experience as a result of this process.
