After the highly acclaimed Blessing, Moondrop Audio decided to up the ante to create something even more impressive with the Blessing 2. With 4 balanced armatures and 1 dynamic driver, this hybrid IEM is a delight to listen to. The medical-grade UV resin housings also pack a hybrid crossover while the customisable faceplate lets you leave your mark on your IEM.A Blessing Disguised as an IEM
Enjoy crisp, clear treble, accurate mids and deep bass with the Moondrop Blessing 2. This hybrid driver IEM uses 2 Knowles SWFK balanced armatures for the high frequencies, 2 proprietary Moondrop balanced armatures for the mids and a 10mm dynamic driver with a paper diaphragm for the bass. The drivers are designed to comply with the VDSF target range of 500-8,000Hz and offer a spectacular musical performance.
Everything Under Control
Unlike other IEMs that simply boast multiple drivers, the Blessing 2 houses an intricate circuit architecture and high-class tuning that precisely controls the drivers while retaining their ideal performance. 3D printed bandpass and low pass filter tubes alter the range of the bass and mids response. The Q value of the high-frequency drivers is limited thanks to the low pass filter. This and the resistor-capacitor crossover, together form an effective hybrid triple crossover that does away with phasing issues throughout the audio spectrum.
Leaving No Stone Unturned
A lot of trial & error and experimentation was required before creating the Moondrop Blessing 2. The complex structure required precise 3D printing. This resulted in a joint venture with HeyGears, a famous supplier known for its DLP-3D printing with medical-grade UV resin. This is what gives this in-ear monitor its superb accuracy, transparency and durability.
Your IEMs, Your Rules
The medical-grade faceplate is crafted from CNC-machined stainless steel that's brushed for a textured finish. The Blessing 2 logo is engraved on one end while the other is kept clear to showcase your creativity. Add your own artwork or a designer sticker, the sky's the limit!
This is very clean mids and highs sounding IEM and may suit some who like boosted bass but its not my cup of tea. I like its mids, highs and dynamics but bass is boosted for me and doesn't sound very clean. It could become excellent IEM with proper EQ but I would rather opt for some other better IEMs available out of the box.
To me it seems it DD driver is being used for mids and highs whereas one (or more) of the BA driver is being used for lows (bass). I could be wrong here but the bass sounds like BA bass .. not quite punchy and clean that DDs provide.
Hence one star off due to bass not being of my liking.. but then I found similar issue with some of quite high end and highly rated IEMs as well. Its just me, my likings and my ratings. :)
I am a hobbyist musician and in my quest for good-sounding all-round earphones and headphones have tried many over the years. The list includes Shure SE 530 triple driver, sony 1000xm3, apple airpod pro, Sennheiser momentum free, Sennheiser hd598, bose qc35, bose in-ear, B&O P3. , Audio Technica Atx50
My range of songs includes Hindi classics by pancham, Kishore, Rafi, Lata, and Asha. Ghazals by Jagjit Singh, Indian independent artists like Prateek kuhad, coke studio projects, Kailash Kher, Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton , Bryan Adams, Arijit Singh , Shreya Ghoshal
With apple music launching HD music in India I was looking for a good Portable DAC and amp. After a bit of research Purchased Ifi go bar. Tried all the earphones/headphones I have with ifi. They obliviously sounded better than but still something was missing
I started looking for a good quality IEM and headphones. I could not audition them in my city so mostly was relying on reviews. it was hard to get a review of the genre of songs I listen to. I tried a popular headphone company but found that the experts there had a different taste. I was not confident to spend a good amount based on their feedback.
Then I connected with Pritam from the audio store and had a nice discussion with him. Based on my music taste He recommended moondrop blessings 2 . I was already inclined to those as These had excellent reviews everywhere on the web. However, I was reluctant to buy Chinese IEM. Post the discussion I took the shot and ordered.
I received them ( and the delivery was quick) and connected Wow!! My first impression was that These were very musical. Separation is excellent and the vocals are sweet. I do not like any of the parts of the song or instrument overpowering others and prefer a balanced mix . They sounded pleasant to my ears
I ordered spin fit tips and upgraded the cable to kinera by leyding. Using the balanced 4.4 connectors with my iFi go bar now. There are still some more hours of burn-in left and I can’t wait. Moondrop blessings 2 are a treat to ears and I am enjoying them. They outshine all other products I have and they will be kept packed now, except Airpod pro for the convenience they offer.
Thank you Pritam Ji and Think audio store. I think this journey has again started now. :)
I have primarily been a headphone listener all my life. My daily drivers being the Hifiman Sundara. I had until this moment always considered IEMs to be two dimensional "a portable compromise" if I may.
But upon a lot of recommendation by literally everyone I decided to give these a try as I was looking for something portable for my commutes to the office. And I could not have been more wrong. The presentation is fantastic! The texture on instruments, voices, percussive hits, drums is just so good. It's not perfect but is 90 percent there. The detail retrieval is great too, mid range is filled with great details both Macro and Micro contrast between layers is very well done. However, I could use a little more bass extension but again it's 90 percent there. Coming to sound stage and imaging, the imaging is just lovely and super precise and the sound stage isn't 2 dimensional at all it's not as wide as the open backs headphones but is really wide definitely outside of the head. Again not perfect but 90 percent there. You see the trend?
This IEM does everything very well and some things exceptionally well. Honestly speaking, the mid range is the highlight here easily in the same ball park as the HD 600s and the Sundara. If mid range is your priority then just get these and that's your endgame. In this price range there are your IE 300 which does bass pretty well but lacks in upper mid range. There is Fiio FD5 which is just off tuning wise. For a little less you could possibly compare it with 7Hz timeless which is also great but doesn't have this wide a sound stage and lacks such forward precise presentation.
So, there is basically nothing that checks more boxes than this and hence I can openly recommend this to anyone and everyone looking to buy something in this price range.
We'll guy's I had recently purchased these new pair of IEM and would like to really appreciate the guy's at Audio store for their help in quick delivery and also special thanks to Pritam for helping me out in my purchase decision!
Well to tell you about the build quality of these IEMs is just Super Amazing and one of the highest quality I have ever seen in any IEMs!!!
Well done Moondrop Guy's for making such impeccable build quality of IEMs!!
Now regarding the Sound Quality of these IEMs..Man o Man ..it is total Bliss!!
I have had it compared against even over the ear headphones like Boss 700, Sony XM4, Sennheiser HD 598 and these IEMs just blow the out of the water!!! The amount of detail retrieval and the tonality is these IEMs is unbelievable at this price point!!
I had also got the opportunity to compare these to wat higher priced IEMs like the Meze Rai Penta which is almost 2 time's the price of these and these IEMs beat them in almost all aspect except the Highs!! It was unreal for me that an IEM at this price point can even beat such high audiophile level IEMs!
The best of the these IEMs are their Mids. The moment you listen to the song's you have heard 1000 time's you will instantly notice the difference and details which you never heard before. I had my own pair of Sennheiser momentum true wireless and I would certainly say these were a perfect upgrade over them in every way possible!!
The bass is tight and deep, not earth shattering but great which helps them not to overshadow the Highs and Mids!!
If one listens to songs like just a lil bit from 50 cents man that drop in bass u can literally feel inside your head!!
There would be many Hindi songs listening guys, to tell them tracks like Tanaha Dil from Shan, Oh Saman from Lucky Ali gosh it sound and details it was able to present was equivalent to 60k priced headphones!!
The tracks like pehla nasha of Amir Khan and could even hear the sound of Bongo being played in that song!! Till date I have never heard it even after listening this song for over 20 years!!
These IEMs are tuned to perfection at this price point!! I can with 100% guarantee tell one is not going to get disappointed with these purchase.
A Total Blissful experience of Music especially for people who are into Trance!!
Blessing 2 is a competent performer with superb sonic capabilities. It has 1.Better soundstage - better wider soundstage with great depth 2.Better sound separation: each instrument easily identifiable
3. Better imaging: overall imaging & clarity is better
Along with this iem ,I highly recommend to use Spinfit CP 145 Silicon tips Which is comfortable for long listening and overall improvement in Sound.
Firstly, I was much impressed with the audio store compared to all other competitors in the market. They have very selected items which will be good to use as a customer. At the start, I add the item FiIO FH3 and went still checkout, and again came back. Later I got the call from the team and asked them to arrange a call with the best who can suggest me on IEM's. Then I got the call from Mr.Pritam. He was the co-founder of the Audio store. We have exchanged our tastes and interest in music for a few minutes. Later he started asking for a few more info on my taste in listening to music and previous music gadgets that were used. Then he got my complete idea about what am looking for then he suggested to go with MOON DROP BLESSING 2. Now, I have to say thanks to Pritam for the great suggestion and the best IEM's he made me get purchase.
MOON DROP BLESSING 2 These are Gem of music. I was thinking what brand is this is? How do they sound? Is it good or bad? But Seriously after getting into my hands then started playing the first few listed here.
1. Taal ( Tital Track ) 2. Iddaru ( sasivadane ) ( Telugu Track ) 3, Hotel California by Eagles4. ilaiyaraaja ( 90's Telugu Tracks )
I can't tell in Audiophile languages about waves, treble, mids & bass but truly can tell what was the experience. You feel like sitting in a hall at the center few instruments are placed right and some are on left. The singer is in the middle position where you stayed. It makes you enjoy your song as if the singer and musician performing only for you specially.
A lot of clarity in the instrumental division and mid-bass was super. Treble sounds so great. The imagining and staging were Awsome. Everything you play with IEM's feels like WoW!
Believe it's your one buy for great Mid-Level IEM's for sure. No need to buy a number of IEM's buy one of the best like this and then upgrade for high-Level IEM's when you have more budget. As of now these IEM's are the best for the price in middle-level IEM's.
Build Quality was great! don't what the medical Grade material said by the company but it looks strong and nice.
The Accsaaiores which need to be there for best Quality output:
1. Any AMP & DAC ( My case has Fiio Q3 ) 2. Get Quality Cables with 4.4 or 2.5 Pin for balanced Sound. ( Next Level Performance )Recommended buying Kinera Leyding OFC Cables. Comes all pin together at a time. 3, Moondrop Filters ( Need be Purchased Separately )4. Some Good Ear Tips as per your Size. If you already have one best no need again. 5. Most Importantly Burn the IEM's for 90 Hours + you will see the magic.
Finally, Thanks again for The Audio Store, Pritam & Aishwarya. Making my purchase more Valuable.
Suggestions: Pritam Ji please make sure to gather all Audiophiles in a group or collect the number of playlists for the customers. So, We can listen to the best Audiophile taste of music. This will become more useful for music lovers.
