Have Lyra II from previous drop. Superb build and sound, but recently purchased Campfire Audio Jupiter. Willing to let these go for $375 (includes USPS Priority CONUS). Buyer pays PayPal fees. If interested, email me at crzin4brgs@yahoo.com.
Love my Vegas, this looks like a decent deal assuming there isn't any issues with the order process.
Are these brand new or B-Stock/Refurbs? Also the Lyra II are Chi-Fi by any other definition (though at this reduced price they're definitely fairly priced): "Assembled in China using globally sourced components"

The drop was for new units @rdodev
Why shipping to U.S only. Very disappointing. Next time please make it available for purchase in foreign countries.
Any thoughts on these versus Final Audio E5000?
How do the Lyra II sound on an iPhone without a DAC or amp of any sort?
Jabudah
I've used them with an iPhone SE (and deezer) and they ran quite well actually.
Jabudah
if you have an iphone 7 or newer w/o headphone jack, the dongles still have a DAC in them since lightning, much like USB is a full digital protocol. Regardless, by the spec the Lyra II would do great without external amp or dac.
I’m new to this audio world and wondering if the difference between the Lyra II and Jupiter worth the $200? Thank you.

You should read some info about different type of drivers. Lyra is single dynamic driver earphone. Jupiter is 4 armature driver. They are totally different
Jupiters are outstanding earphones. I paid full boat 700 (I think?) a couple years ago and they’re well worth that price.
$350?? If only I had the patience and foresight to wait until now 😆
Where @jaydunndiddit ??? =) given we share the bass-leaning sound signature, how does the Lyra II or Jupyter rank? Any observations/warning you care to share?

Both NightOwl and NightHawk are superb value. Those were $800 cans when AudioQuest first brought them to market. I'm a huge fan and I don't mean to speak for Jay Dunn Did It, but I believe he's fond of them as well.

@WILLxLOVE I much prefer, and still own, the Lyra II. They get so much right sound wise but also with ergonomics too. That said, the Jupiters are nice sounding. They just approach the lean, more analytical side of music listening. I'm very rarely in the mood to pick apart minuteia in music pieces but if you're this type of individual you'll love the Jupiter's. Still, the Lyra's remind me a lot of a smoother, tamed Vega. They're kinda neutral-ish with lifted bass and some treble energy above 5 kHz to add enough sparkle and not be boring or dark. Now, YMMV but I didn't and still don't enjoy the shape of the Jupiter housing. It's just big and has odd edges. The stems are also stubby so I never felt like I could ever get to a comfortable insertion depth. I had this issue with both the Andromedas and it bothered me enough to return those as well. The Lyra are smaller, lighter, and more ergonimc. They literally disappear in your ears. But, at this price, I would find it hard to pass on the Lyra's. They sound natural and their bass has the right texture and decay. I don't know what it is about BA bass but it sounds so unnatural to me nowadays. Almost artificial in a way. That could easily be a me thing but figure it's worth mentioning.

Good call. The Massdrop price is not bad, but if anyone is looking for the Jupiter, I would definitely buy it directly from Campfire Audio's website now and get the free Litz balanced upgrade cable and/or the Reference 8 cable for a deep discount (as part of their BF special).
Oh man I have a pair of Lyra II and I love them. This Black Friday price is amazing (they are $599 ON SALE) on Campfire Audio's website.
save and buy andros
donutholer
Seems like the andromeda won't show up easily on massdrop.
stormmilk
then get them at the CA site
Why so many people complaining these because they are not as good as $1,000 IEMs? I got mine for $630 and I'm very satisfied. First of all, I don't like boomy sound. These sound universally good , from iPad to Desktop dac. iSine 20 sound better at this price point, but they are huge. BAs are so deminding for amps, so Lyra II has it's edge to me.
Not even worth $400... Stick to my old ass IE8
JohnnyXCG
The Lyra II's sound quite a bit better than IE8's. I'd argue worth the price difference, also considering the better build quality.
c.waki7
The IE80s is already selling at around $250 without any discounts, so I would say it's of better value.
These or MD+’s?

I have the Nuforce HEM8s. It sounds like Lyra would be the better option? The HEM8 is fairly bass heavy for what it is - tuning wise.
WILLxLOVE
Personally, I would get them over the HEM8. They have this sort of neutral-ish tuning and lifted bass with treble energy rising starting at 5 kHz and up. They're very smooth per their FR measurements and have a great form factor, build, and accessories. They just sound very pleasing and sound good with any genre. The only thing I disliked stock was the stock cable because of the memory wire. I got mine for $400 and would definitely recommend these at $350. I think they're a very good mid-tier dynamic driver IEM and intro to the Campfire sound.
I like these but I really want Polaris. Since they're doing so many CA drops I'm sure it's coming soon. Or at least I hope.
plexabyte
I couldn't say no if they did a Polaris drop.
Ashw99
Especially if it gets a similar price cut.
Does anyone know if these would be a big step up from MEE Pinnacle 1?
PeachG
Yes! if you like a pure DD sound these are hard to beat at this price
Since I have a pair of MD+, I am wondering if it will give me a significantly different fun sound worth $400. Can anyone enlighten me?
tbh you'd probably be better off dropping $400 more and wait for a B-stock Andromeda to show up and buy that one instead... Lyra II is... well it could be better.
Oakbing
I have both. and the Andromedas is a completely different sound. It is multi BA with amazing separation and soundstage with amazing mids with nice treble. BUT $850 even at b stock prices and they are extremely sensitive to source. Even if you don’t get any hiss from let’s say an iPhone or V30 when I got a ZX300 player it made such a difference I was shocked because I thought they sounded good out of my ifi xdsd already. The L2 are more forgiving and 1/4 the price of Andromedas
I have these and they’re great! Please bring us the Vegas!
I highly doubt the current flagship andromedas(which I also have) or the Atlas will show up here anytime soon
Description seems to emphasize highs, which as someone very treble sensitive (nuforce edc3 sound harsh and horrible to my ears to give you an idea of my listener profile) gives me pause. Are they really treble happy?

In your mind, having a pair of these, would it be worth it upgrading to vega/atlas (at MD/gray market discounted price) ?
Virgule
Yes. I'm borrowing my friends Vega (about a month now) and it's night and day. The Vega is much more technical and outright bigger and meatier than the Lyra. However, it's treble can get hot on some tracks, the same with sibilance. Even though I say that, it hasn't been enough to my ears to stop me from listening to them as much as I can. They have such a big unique sound that is quite addicting. Hoping that CA drops the Vega here since it's being replaced by the Atlas. I enjoy them just not at $1100. I think for $800-900 I would buy my own pair. I haven't heard the Atlas yet but from what I've read, it's an improvement over the Vega in pretty much every regard. I'm just not a fan of the form factor. The Lyra/Dorado/Vega are my favorite housings from Campfire as they just disappear into my ears and are so lightweight.
Another chance for a fantastic pair of IEM I'm very pleased to have bought. However, what we needed was a chance for the higher end models ! Bring us the Atlas/Vega/Andromeda !
Today was the day of expected delivery. It has not arrived. I am disappointed tracking stopped the minute it left US postal service and supposedly entered Canada 6 days ago. I hope Lyra shows up soon without problems.
Hey guys, my one of my Lyra II's drivers seems to have the glue that's keeping the driver to the aluminum housing completely undone. I was removing from my ear and I noticed that the plastic driver part is completely loose. How long is the warranty? I've had them for about a year now. :c

Oh thanks for the reply! They actually did and were actually pretty nice and swift
LeSriracha
Awesome! CA treats their customers well and they respond quickly.
Received a mailing confirmation last night. Yes.
When will we get these with international shipping?
Will these ship soon?
Will I have to pay tax for these, if shipped to New York?
Hellikk
No
Are these worth it against a periodic berillyum?
verlaine33
Check out bstock IMR R1 @ 315 shipped instead of 700 on their main website. I had the be but returned it cause it was dull and boring. This IMR that I got a week ago shatters my old Be. Glad I returned that thing.
