Experience the refined fusion of technology and design with Black Star. Its sleek brushed stainless steel body, accented with a black PVD finish, complements the sophisticated acrylic inlay, invoking the allure of a night sky. Inside, the 10mm Dynamic Driver offers a rich and even-handed bass response, while the mid balanced armature and twin supertweeters provide clear, balanced mids and highs. Black Star is designed to elevate your listening experience, combining exceptional sound quality with understated elegance.
Black Star goes beyond exceptional sound, offering a complete auditory experience. Accompanying these premium earphones are the Time Stream cables, meticulously engineered with silver-plated copper conductors, available in both 3.5mm and 4.4mm terminations for versatile, high-fidelity connections. The earphones come encased in a handcrafted leather case from Portugal, epitomizing luxury and protection. Designed to be visually stunning and functionally superior, this case is a testament to the craftsmanship that compliments Black Star.
Sonically, Black Star presents a thoughtful balanced sound signature, meticulously crafted to deliver a harmonious blend of crisp highs, detailed mids, and a solid bass foundation that underpins the sound without overpowering it. This creates an immersive soundscape that captures the essence of every genre, allowing the mid and vocal range to shine, ensuring a listening experience crafted for the most discerning audiophiles.
Black Star seamlessly blends the strengths of dynamic drivers and balanced armatures to create a sound signature characterized by balance and versatility. In the lineage of Campfire Hybrids (typically known for their bombastic and emotional signatures), BlackStar fills a unique role as a hybrid that highlights a balanced frequency response and an even-handed overall approach.
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.
Campfire Audio’s new Dual Magnet Dynamic Driver leverages an enhanced magnetic field to create greater efficiency, superior transient response, and precision diaphragm movement. This advanced audiophile transducer is characterized by a deep, emotionally resonant sound signature. Black Star utilizes this driver to bring just the right amount of low-end impact that is impeccably balanced with the remainder of the frequency spectrum. Accurate and reserved, while still conveying that dynamic driver sound, the Dual Magnet works in perfect harmony with Black Star's configuration.
