Cascade is a culmination of a 3-year engineering effort to bring the Campfire Audio signature sound to a headphone.
The results of that effort is Cascade, a portable, closed-back headphone that sounds and performs like it’s open. Even better; it has the unique sound you expect from a Campfire Audio headphone. Cascade is the headphone that the Campfire Audio team wanted for themselves while traveling. It folds up to a compact size and features an isolated closed-back design. Best of all it sounds excellent with your portable device and scales with ease in your home set-up.
Cascade delivers exceptional musicality and openness. It has a soundstage that expands well beyond the listening space. It possesses sonic traits not found in typical closed-back headphone designs. Specially crafted custom drivers are at the heart of Cascade. Powerful and impactful sound with excellent speed and micro-detail retrieval. Superior highs extend over precise and controlled bass notes.
Creating a portable audiophile headphone requires using materials that are up for the job. Lightweight forged and machined aluminum cups paired with stainless steel components. This provides added strength in the places where you need it most. The headband, joints, and pivot are all made of stainless steel. This makes the traditionally weakest parts of a headphone the strongest. The cups and hanger arms are aluminum; cast and then machined to reduce weight. With premium sheepskin ear pads that are not only comfortable but provide excellent isolation. Listen to your favorite track on the bus without disturbing your fellow passengers. Escape office boredom without complaints.
Designed with portable use in mind, Cascade is a durable headphone for use at home and on the go. The more you listen, the more you’ll find you’ll want to keep it with you, where ever that might be. Cascade has excellent high-frequency extension with cymbals that sparkle and expand on a wide soundstage, the mids are clear and uncolored along a bass response that is rich in texture and well defined. All qualities you won’t find in a typical closed-back design.
