'Really Good Stuff. The Comet simply sounds good. Really good. It has a nicely balanced low-mid fullness with the high frequency extension magic from our 3D modeled Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber sprinkled on top.The weight of new stainless steel body feels great in the hand and the low profile design keeps it comfortable in your ear. An excellent seal lets you block out the world and escape into your music. Comet is designed and assembled in our Portland, Oregon workshop.' - Campfire Audio
Campfire Audio had just released the Cascade headphone to popular acclaim and the two new IEMs came hot on its heels.
The more surprising point was a new shell for both, and of stainless steel!, also a new cable that came with the Atlas, the Comet sharing the same cable as the Polaris but with a mic.
What hit most and sent ripples of glee throughout many a budding Campfire Audio fan was the price, US $199. Finally a Campfire Audio model that would provide an affordable entry into the Campfire Universe.
How does it compare to the rest of the CA line up, does it keep to the standard of performance we have become accustomed to from Campfire Audio? Lets find out.
But everyone has different ears...
Many a budding audiophile will rely strictly to the stock tips and bless or curse a product on the results of them alone.
I as many others do recommend trying out different tips:
Get a good fit, comfortable, well sealed and with good isolation.
Also you can tune the music with your choice of tips, the type (foam/silicone/flange etc), the length and bore size.
Play around until it feels comfortable and you can hardly hear it as you click your fingers by your ear.
Insertion is often over looked. proper insertion.
Pull your ear up by the top most point, and then pull it slightly back. Then insert your earphones. this can help prevent trapped air, driver flex, no sound or general uncomfortableness.
Anyway JVC Spiral Tips for me, with the occasional Ortofon, although as mentioned I did enjoy the Foam and Spinfit stocks tips. My ears are fussy.
