Pros:

1) FUN IEM 2) INTIMATE PRESENTATION (MIGHT BE A PRO OR A CON) 3) GREAT DETAILS 4) VISCERAL MIDBASS AND GOOD SUBBASS 5) GREAT SPARKLE AND ENERGY IN TREBLE, YET NOT TOO BRIGHT 6) VOCALS ARE REALLY BALANCED, GOOD AND MORE DEFINED TOO

CAMPFIRE AUDIO has already been famous for their highly sensitive, easy to run iems and the most notable ones are Andromeda and Solaris which have already captured a lot of hearts. Each model in their earphone lineup is designed and assembled by hand in our Portland, Oregon workshop. Coming onto today, I am gonna review the CA Mammoth today which is a new refresh of their 2021 lineup (probably a successor to their POLARIS; sorry but I don’t have hands on experience with that at all ) DISCLAIMER- THIS IS A UNIT WHICH BELONGS TO MY FRIEND WHO HAS GOT THEM FOR REVIEW AND I TOOK A LITTLE LOANER FROM HIM TO TRY MY FIRST FORAY INTO CAMPFIRES OFFERING. I WANNA THANK FRIEND SUMAN AND @CampfireAudio FOR LETTING ME LISTEN TO SOMETHING THIS GOOD!!!

As for me it was easy to run off my N6ii with T01 module (med gain and 20-30 volume range) and even my LG G8x (50% on volume) and Samsung S10 lite (60% on volume was good enough) and Apple XS Max (75% on volume) (last two I had to run dongles haha!!! BTR5 was also pretty good with it. It’s quite easy to run off anything… But does amping change it much NOPE, but different sources will have different SQ. I did try to run this off my XDUOO MT602 and it was really good but very microphonic while playing music if you touch the desk or the cable, but very tiny noise was heard , when there is like nothing playing volume was around 9am (Your ears would blow up at that level for sure HAHA) but not with either of the SS amps- L30 or A30 (burson V5i modded).

UNBOXING EXPERIENCE-

It was one of a kind for sure. It’s not a classy type but more vibrant type of unboxing experience. I was just amazed with the patterns and all and you won’t be disappointed!!! It’s not as good in accessories and connectors as DUNU is but it’s pretty good!!! I will let the pictures speak for itself…
