I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing quite a number of Campfire Audio IEMs over the recent months. Perhaps the last one (for a while at least) is the Campfire Audio Dorado, a hybrid IEM in the same shaped shell as the Lyra and combining a dynamic driver (like the one in the Lyra) with two balanced-armature drivers. In theory, this combination of technologies should lead to a magnificent amalgamation of the Lyra II and the Andromeda, but just how well did those pieces come together? Read on to find out…

The FLC8 earphone from FLC Technology is a truly unique earphone because the FLC8 comes with the ability to adjust its sound signature.

It’s pretty clever!
