Phase Harmony Engineering: Bringing it All Together
At Campfire Audio, our philosophy regarding driver treatment informs a considered approach that emphasizes quality over quantity. In the arms-race to fit a higher and higher number of drivers into an earphone, we find that a results-driven technique to driver treatment produces superior results; with less room for pitfalls and ever-expanding variables that can undermine product consistency.
One of the products of this approach is our Phase Harmony Engineering, that allows us to segment the frequency spectrum and assign these segments to specific drivers, and allows those drivers to apply their strengths to that area. But it doesn’t end there.
By using a combination of precision-engineered driver housings and shell geometry, coupled with custom damping values, we are able to physically shape the tuning and response of the drivers, and further, their interaction with one another.
This driver-to-driver interaction is crucial to eliminating points of potential phase cancellation and creating the intangibles that don’t show on a frequency response curve; imaging, separation, resolution, and soundstage.
Beyond Frequency Response: Expansive Sound With Patented T.A.E.C.
Campfire’s patented driver treatment technology, our TAEC technology is a specially crafted, unique space in which a balanced armature is housed. This allows for the emphasis/de-emphasis of specific frequency bands, enabling the ultra-fine tuning of a driver.
In Ponderosa, TAEC is applied to the dual-high driver assembly to create an incredibly precise and detailed high-frequency response. Coupling this high driver architecture with our three-way Phase Harmony Engineering, ensures a smooth interaction between a segmented, precision-tuned high-end and the remaining frequency range.
Solid Body Build: Safe & Sound
Campfire Audio’s patented Solid Body Design allows driver installation directly into a single, precisely 3D printed ‘engine block’ that routes the sound to the listener and uses built-in geometry to tune and accent the drivers in an intentional and exact manner that elevates the listening experience for the user.
Additionally, this build style additionally improves the structural integrity within the earphone, and eliminates variables and points of failure that other forms of driver routing can be susceptible to.
