Moondrop Blessing 3 In-Ear Monitors Review: Unparalleled Sound Finesse

For over a year, Moondrop Blessing 2 has reigned as one of the top in-ear monitors under the 30K INR price range. Recently, the brand launched the 3rd version of the Blessing series IEM. In this comprehensive review, we delve into the build, comfort, and sound quality of the Moondrop Blessing 3. Throughout the review, we used stock cables, spinfit CP100 Plus eartips, and Questyle M15 DAC with an iPhone and MacBook.

What sets the design and build quality of the Moondrop Blessing 3 apart from its competitors?

Moondrop Blessing 3 features a high-quality transparent resin construction, allowing you to easily see all the drivers and electric components. The faceplate, made of metal with a finely cut line design, adds a touch of classic elegance. Overall, the IEMs boast an impressive aesthetic. The cable is crafted from soft TPE material, providing a nice, durable feel. The build quality is excellent, both in terms of appearance and durability.

Is the Moondrop Blessing 3 a comfortable and secure fit for different ear sizes?

The Moondrop Blessing 3 IEMs come in a medium-sized shell. While they may not fit properly in small ears without some adjustments to the eartips and placement, they fit exceptionally well in medium to large ears. Thanks to their lightweight design, you won't feel like you're using large shell IEMs. The inner side of the IEMs features curves and bends that contribute to a snug fit and effective noise isolation.

What makes the sound quality of the Moondrop Blessing 3 stand out, from bass to treble?

The Moondrop Blessing 3 delivers clean, layered, and effortless sound. The bass offers improved weight and texture compared to the previous version of the Blessing IEMs. The midrange is more natural and lively, while the treble is layered, textured, and detailed. If you currently own the Blessing 2 or are in the market for IEMs with a budget of around 30K INR, we highly recommend upgrading to the Blessing 3. This all-rounder IEM handles various genres, from classical to metal, with effortless precision. The tuning is very safe, appealing to most Indian and global audiophiles.

  • Bass

Moondrop Blessing 3 utilizes two dynamic drivers for lower frequencies. The bass is tastefully tuned, delivering power, air, and punchiness. When the bass kicks in, you feel it resonating through your ears. If Moondrop could enhance the bass speed and add a slightly thicker texture, the Blessing 3 would be even more appealing to bassheads. In certain tracks, we noticed a pleasant sensation of air or vibration in the ears, enhancing the overall listening experience.

  • Midrange

The midrange frequencies are beautifully balanced and integrated into the overall sound signature. The midrange on the Moondrop Blessing 3 sounds natural, emotional, and smooth. You'll feel as if the singer is right beside you, singing exclusively for you. Few IEMs can deliver such an immersive experience, and we absolutely loved the midrange performance on the Blessing 3.

  • Treble

The treble exhibits ample energy and weight while maintaining exquisite detail. There is no sharpness or harshness throughout the frequency range. Each instrument and tone sound natural and lifelike, with zero artificial feeling. From guitars and drums to pianos and classical instruments, everything is reproduced with transparency and authenticity.

How does the Moondrop Blessing 3 create a wide soundstage and precise imaging for an immersive listening experience?

  • Soundstage

The Moondrop Blessing 3 provides a pleasantly wide soundstage with impressive height and depth. The sound feels as if it's being produced in a holographic or multi-dimensional space, enhancing the overall immersion.

  • Imaging

The imaging on the Blessing 3 is accurate and precise. While listening to the track "Hotel California," we consistently perceived sounds coming from the right, left, and center, creating an engaging and realistic soundstage.

How does the Moondrop Blessing 3 compare to its predecessor, the Blessing 2, in terms of sound signature?

In the under 30,000 INR price range, there are limited options available. Comparing the Blessing 2 with the new Blessing 3, the main differences lie in the bass and midrange. Blessing 2 offers more controlled and tight bass, while the Blessing 3's midrange is more lively. Other IEMs, such as the Audio Hekili and FiiO FD5, lean towards a more fun and V-shaped sound signature, unlike the Blessing 3's safe and balanced tuning. If you're seeking a safe and harmonically tuned IEM, the Blessing 3 is a definite recommendation.
