At the heart of the Dorado is an 8.5mm Beryllium PVD Dynamic Driver. The same phenomenal driver we first developed for the Lyra II. Now paired with Dual HF Balanced Armature drivers.
Liquid Alloy Metal
High density, remarkable mechanical strength and excellent acoustic properties .
Dual BA Drivers
Dorado pairs Dual High-Frequency BA Drivers with the Dynamic Driver to produce sparkling highs and spectacular bass.
Our unique method for getting the most exciting high frequency response available.
The Dorado is a hybrid design that the offers the best of both worlds.
Integrating a custom 8.5mm beryllium PVD transducer into a Liquid Alloy Metal enclosure is a powerful combination. Adding dual high-frequency drivers with our TAEC technology takes it over the top.
Dorado delivers a fun and dynamic sound–exceptional high-frequency extension, detailed mids, and deep, powerful bass response. A sound, free from grain and harshness.
Beryllium PVD Dynamic Driver
Campfire Audio was proud to be the first company to use a beryllium PVD dynamic driver in an earphone with the introduction of the original Lyra.
The Dorado goes a step beyond by adding dual high frequency drivers in addition to the dynamic driver.
Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber™
Dual high frequency drivers discard a traditional ‘tube & damper’ tuning system for our new Tuned Acoustic Expansion Chamber™ (TAEC). 3-D printed chamber provides the acoustic tuning without compression. As a result, high frequencies are extended and open, providing an unmatched sonic quality unique to Campfire Audio earphones.
We partnered with master driver manufacturers to produce the dynamic driver at the heart of the Lyra II. With nearly 30 years of transducer development and driver production experience, we worked together to develop a new and unique dynamic drivers with exceptional sonic qualities for our earphones.
The Right Stuff
Exceptional products are most often achieved by the coming together of many people and technologies are the right moment.The Dorado’s creation was no different. Thoughtful design and careful tuning of the earphone delivers a sound that will delight the most discerning audiophile.
Fit and Finish
Dorado is offered with a PVD finish in a color we call ‘Sunrise’.
Our custom Beryllium Copper MMCX eliminates the traditional shortcomings of the connection and harnesses all of its benefits.
Beryllium Copper provides a robust mating mechanism; one that is typcially made from soft brass. This selection of a harder material extends the life of component and the earphone.
It makes replacing or upgrading your earphone cable care free because you know this will not wear out the mating pins.
Comfort First DesignThe design of our new Liquid Alloy Metal line offers an easy to wear size and comfortable shape. The housing is extremely durable and ready to stand up to demanding daily use.
Liquid Alloy Metal
The housing to every earphone plays an important part in shaping the sound that is delivered.
Selecting the right material for an earphone’s housing can be as important as selecting the proper driver because of the significant role it plays in the final sound of the earphone.
Excellent Physical and Sonic Qualities
When we were first introduced to the Liquid Alloy Metal we were impressed by the many benefits it could offer.
- Superior mechanical strength, higher than Titanium
- Extraordinary hardness enabling resistance to scratching or dents
- Unique cosmetic appearance
- Excellent anti-corrosion and chemical resistance
- Environmental and human friendly, non toxic and allergen free
- Excellent damping and vibration characteristics
Rare Earth Magnets
Neodymium rare earth magnets, the strongest type of permanent magnet commercially available are utilized in the Lyra II’s dynamic driver. This powerful and compact magnet ( 3.8mm x 1.2mm x 1.3mm) provides the magnetic field for the voice coil’s operation.
Individually InspectedClose attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. We test and pair each individual earphone, Left and Right, to establish its conformity to our firmly established tuning and performance criteria. The result is a pair of earphones made for each other that you can feel good about.
