These comfortable headphones have a detachable audio cable design, eliminating audio lag. Their neutral sound profile also has a touch of extra high-bass to add warmth to mixes,...

It's a perfect gateway drug

I've been listening to headphones for a long time and have anlot of money into them but this isy first dip into IEM. These aren't balanced but they're fun. The bass is slightly raised but everything is clear and you'll still be able to pull your music appart and enjoy it how you'd like. These have a...

Moondrop Aria Review | Same Great Thing, Cheaper Price

I think they are decently detailed for their price point in terms of dynamics. Overall, macro dynamics are fairly decent. Micro is a little bit smoothed over, but it's a cheap iem about to be expected same with transients uh, these moon drop single dds

Moondrop’s “WaifuPods” are $80 Giant Killers

It’s quite an impressive feat that the Chifi audio brand Moondrop has pulled off when creating their Aria’s. This is my first pair of IEM’s from them, and I have to say their quality is outstanding. Just to clarify, this is actually Moondrop’s Aria 2’s, an improvement upon their previous model of Ar...

To The Point: Moondrop Aria

Moon drop provides a better cable, a sturdy case, equally good build similar tuning and a more traditional design. If this is the type of sound signature you are interested in, then i think the aria is a good bargain. It is value at eighty dollars

Clean, Balanced & Clear!

Very Clean with a real nice clarity to them. It’s definitely balanced over all, nothing is trying to out do the other frequencies, though there is a little lift in the bass and in the treble region, the mid range seems pretty level and maybe a pinch upper mid lift as well, as the vocals come in nice...

One of the best value for money IEMs with fantastic performance

The Moondrop Aria recently joined my collection of IEMs including Blon BL-03, KZ ZS10 Pro, and Fiio FD1. After listening to these for about a month they have quickly become my daily drivers to use at work. Pros: -Fantastic sound (beating all similarly priced competitors and punching well above its w...

Sometimes shouty with female vocals

Build quality and presentation of the packaging are very nice at the price point. Sound signature is mostly inoffensive as well (doing a google search will find you many in-depth descriptions) but high pitched female vocals can come sometimes come off as ear grating. And since that's about 90% of wh...

Good sound, you will eventually need a replacement cable.

Would rate at 4.5 stars if that were possible. Docked half a star for the cable. I've been listening to music (mostly KPOP, class Rock and jazz) for a month. I really enjoy these earphones. The bass is strong and extended with some rumble. Mids are fine. Vocals are clear and presented well. My heari...

There's a lot of hype for these. But is it entirely earned?

I do like the sound, they are very clear. The soundstage is good but not great. The bass is there, but not overwhelming. The treble is nice, but not blowing me away. Given the hype, I expected a bit more. There are some IEMs (some blon, 1more, some KZ) that have impressed me equally or even more in ...
