CAMPFIRE Audio has done it again with its new wired In-Ear Monitors (IEMs), the Satsuma and Honeydew, each tailored to suit different musical tastes. The company’s decision to market affordable ‘buds while still maintaining the features and design characteristics of its higher priced models is nothing short of commendable.
“Satsuma and Honeydew are distinguished in the marketplace by offering uncommon features at these price points, including patented 3D-designed acoustic chambers, full-range balanced armature drivers, and ultra-high-quality silver-plated copper cabling,” the company press release says.
“The ‘orange-fizz’ coloured Satsuma features an aesthetically similar presentation as Campfire Audio’s higher-end range of products, characterised by the company’s unique 3D printed acoustic chamber design. This chamber helps to optimise frequency response curves emanating from the unit’s full-range balanced armature driver.
“Sonically, Satsuma is characterised by highly focused mid-band frequencies, tightly controlled bass response, and slightly enhanced highs – without the harshness. Satsuma’s clear and balanced sound makes it well-suited for almost any musical genre, particularly rock, pop, classical or jazz. Its lightweight design and comfortable fit make it equally suited for listening while on the go.”
The Honeydew is the bassier and more fun counterpart of the Satsuma.
“The ‘mellow-yellow’ coloured Honeydew – which also features Campfire Audio’s patented 3D printed acoustic chamber – was designed with a bass-forward frequency response that R&B, hip-hop, and EDM fans will appreciate.”
Campfire assures users that there is no compromise in the build quality of both models, and the lack of “connectivity distractions” ensure they will continue to deliver stellar performance for years. The weight and strength of high-end ABS plastic used for the housing mean that the units can withstand even the most demanding conditions.
The Satsuma and Honeydew, priced at £199/$199 and £249/$249 respectively – are available now at Hifiheadphones (UK), the Campfire Audio webshop (US) and through authorised dealers worldwide.
