These are great earphones, I'm just a little disappointed that after I bought them for 40k more than the currently listed price (less than a month ago), the price is now down by about 40%, for a long standing customer and someone using the website quite regularly for 4 odd years.... a regular customer should be notified that there will be a drastic price reduction so the customer can defer his purchase for a few days....other than that the HPZ team is very professional and helpful....I hope they have some way to rectify this....
Update - have been listening to these for over a month now, they're good but I quite honestly found the moondrop blessing 2, campfire holocene and moondrop s8 much better in terms of pure sound, and these IEMs are also much cheaper than the ARAs.
First thing first, the build quality of CA Ara is nothing short of spectacular. By far it is the smartest looking product from CA camp, trust me I have seen many. It is built like a tank too. But it comes with a slight downside due to slightly on the heavier side and spout on the larger side. But let me clarify that these things vary from person to person. Initially I use to wear it for 60-90 minutes when it generally use to start little fatigue but a 5-10 minute use to solve that out. But now that problem has gone, maybe my ear has adapted to Ara.
Now the sound - It's a very clean and clinical sounding set. There is a richness to the sound which you can feel as soon as you start using it. It's not dry or boring but enjoyable to its taste. Its a crossover-less design so you will notice how distinctly each of the three broad FRs are taken care of in this design. I think the claim of Campfire Audio that it is a monitoring iem is totally true, you can deep dive into Low/Mids/Highs and micro nuances without any problem. To my ears it is very balanced tuning, none of the FRs are emphasized or subdued. I fully recommend Ara to someone who wants to experience analytical or clinical sound.
We thank you for this lovely review & we are glad you are enjoying it! Keep the music playing.
The Audiophile , the connoisseurs and the casual listener it is everybody's delight. The performance out and out is impeccable. The aura of excellence is palpable . Highly recommended.
Thank you for the instantaneous awesome review Sanjay!
