Based on popular demand, the discontinued Moondrop Aria is now back! The new Aria is revived to give you an enhanced experience throughout the frequency range with its 10mm drivers with an LCP diaphragm and advanced hardware. A detachable cable lets you choose the cable for your IEMs.Be Natural While Focusing on Every Detail
The Moondrop Aria is equipped with a 10mm dual-cavity magnetic high-performance dynamic driver. The Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm offers a superb transient response, precise details and hi-res audio. An ultra-fine imported Daikoku-CCAW voice coil brings a lightweight suspension system for a transparent and natural sound. Expect a balanced, open sound that’s rich in detail and texture.
Through All Highs & Lows
A newly designed high-frequency phase waveguide lessens the distortion caused by high-frequency phase interference. This ensures a treble that’s smoother, natural and delicate. The Aria balances this out with the brass cavity's volume control so that no one frequency overpowers the spectrum. The frequency response complies with the room response function as well as the head-related transfer function (HRTF) that ensures a wider vertical soundstage while recording.
Feel the Power
The Aria offers multiple tuning holes and acoustic damping for precise frequency response adjustments. Along with the composite sound cavity, these ensure a powerful performance of the driver unit. The metal cavity is created using an injection moulding, CNC-carved process. It perfectly blends the qualities of durability with functionality and elegance.
The Perfect Cable for the Perfect IEMs
The Moondrop Aria comes with a 0.78mm 2-pin silver-plated cable for lossless signal transmission. The cable is braided in a nylon sleeve to avoid tangles and breakage. The detachable design allows you to swap the existing cable for another one - wired or wireless!
Good decision to purchase after going through lot of positive reviews. Thanks Audio Store .
Review after using Moondrop Aria for almost 2 months:
After almost a month of research, I zeroed down to Aria as my first IEM, and I must say, I don't regret it at all. I am sensitive to sharp trebles and not a big bass-head, however I do enjoy raspiness and rumble in vocals. Aria perfectly fits the sound profile I was looking for.
The shells are made of metal, which is pretty solid. I accidentally dropped mine a few times from the height of a table, but it's still fine. Due to metal shell, these have a little weight, but with the cable, they don't feel heavy on the ears. I wore them almost everyday for continuous 6-7 hours without any fatigue. The stock cable is braided woven fabric all the way, with a chin slider to help with the cable control.
Inside the box you will get a carry-case, extra set of filters, tweezers (to replace the filters), and standard silicone ear tips.
Aria meets the hype. Harman tuned, clean sound, tight and yet not too boomy bass, midrange with good tonality, airy and not too sharp trebles, and pretty easy to drive (works like a charm with my OnePlus 7T and a normal OnePlus USB C-to-3.5 dongle). Coming from typical consumer oriented in-ears (Sennheiser 275s, Sony MDR series), I could never have imagined that an in-ear could sound this good on busy tracks. The details and sound separation is phenomenal for the price. Soundstage is decent, but one can't expect a wide soundstage from an IEM.
There are times when I am astonished by the details I am able to hear on these, and I immediately go back to hear it once again. (Listen to Baba O'Riley - The Who @2:01 to understand what I am saying)
PS - Audio file format matter a lot too. Initially I was using YouTube music, Spotify and my local FLAC library. After a while, I also subscribed to Tidal, and the difference between Tidal and Spotify/YouTube Music was quite significant (specially the detail and instrument separation).
1) The stock cable although braided, tangle very easily.
2) After using it as my daily driver for 2 months, I can see paint chipping away at the edges of the shell. The chips are not too big and are only visible when you are close, but still the edges aren't smooth anymore.
3) Soundstage is just about decent.
This looks like the value entry into the Moondrop Line. Clean sound, good bass and seems to be of good construction.
Moondrop Aria are my first IEM. They are just awesome. And special thanks to pritam for instore audio experience. I was able to try out so many different IEMs. This gave me the confidence to buy Aria and I am very satisfied with the purchase.
