After delivering hits like the Spaceship and Aria, Moondrop is back with yet another incredible in-ear monitor – the Chu. Designed with a 10mm dynamic driver, this IEM has an upgraded acoustic structure and has been professionally tuned to match the VDSF curve for better soundstage, imaging and a well-balanced audio experience.
Make your Music Come Alive
Enjoy music that reflects the original timbre and position of the vocals and musical instruments with the Moondrop Chu. With its open and natural musical experience, it faithfully reproduces the sound heard in the recording studio, making it the go-to for recording and mixing professionals.
High-Quality Acoustic Architecture
Using the popular Aria’s decentralized dynamic structure, the Moondrop Chu is equipped with a 10mm composite cavity with a high-frequency phased waveguide. The driver is designed with an N52 Nd magnet, 0.035m ultra-thin imported CCAW voice coil and a nano-crystal coated composite diaphragm for outstanding performance and detailed audio across the frequency range.
The Ideal Frequency Response Curve
The Chu uses multiple methods to match its frequency response as closely as possible to the VDSF Target Response. Some of these include FEA finite element simulation, 3D printing experiment verification and volume and dimension calculation. This results in a carefully controlled acoustic coupling cavity that can accurately reproduce the ideal frequency response.
Hitting All the Right Targets
The Moondrop VDSF Target Response is a parametric target. The sound quality is controlled using composite elements. This restores the sound quality to mastering levels while creating an open soundstage with the characteristics of a diffusion-tuned space. This response is based on B&K HATS’ Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) for diffusion and the ideal room preference curve. The closer to the target frequency curve, the better the soundstage and imaging.
Designed to be Beautiful & Durable
The Moondrop Chu’s outer cavity is engineered from durable alloy metal using cutting-edge melting and injection moulding technology. This enhances the aesthetics while creating precise and reliable housings. The popular Spring Tips ensure better comfort and noise isolation.
Natural sound better separation and comfort for ears all are good except bass punch lacks can be tweaked in equaliser for that other than that perfect iem's in entry level segment.
Best in the budget!
Very comfortable and sound is good for the price.
Highs: 9/10 a bit too harsh to the ears but it is clean
Mids: 10/10 vocals are clear, perfect loudness
Bass: 6.5/10 clearly lacking bass, a bit of this is due overpowering highs, if you try to increase volume then highs aren't that bearable for long duration. And that too when I am not a basshead, highs are bit overpowering even for me.
A little tweak from equalizer will help you, but if you are listening in bit perfect mode no equalizer is available.
Build Quality: Awesome, metal build, okayish wires could have had bit more rubber thickness.
Love the Chu! The sound quality is just good, there is a lack of heavy bass and the highs may be too high sometimes, but overall a very good product.
I have been using Boat, Boult and Noise products so far, and this is far superior to any of their products within the 2-5k INR range. They are comfortable and sturdy (Even though the cable could be strengthened a bit more).
Definitely going to go for more Moondrop products in the future :D
Bought these while my headphones were gone for repair. Have to say, best in the price segment when compared to Boat, Boult, Noise and other brands. The audio quality is just clear and lovely. Love the Chu! Will definitely opt for another Moondrop product in the future :D

These are the best tips for my ears among the many branded tips I have tried. They seem to improve clarity, soundstage, clean the bass which improves it's textures. Only minus is that, they are not available to buy in one size, which is sad I should say.
The title says it all. Awesome purchase. Ear hooks are a bit sturdy, but for the price, no complains..awesome purchase
Excellent support from the Audio store.
The headphone is the best bang for buck product,
in terms of Audio Quality , i can't find anything wrong, maybe its because my ears were exposed to constant noise around me ever since i was a kid . I don't think most people can tell the difference between these or expensive ones.
I had been using Poweramp music player since 2020 with the Tin T2 plus and i was pretty much satisfied.
However I decided to change to UAPP and thus ordered the most budget dac i thought would be decent.
And this was more than that ..
The sound quality of my already stored flac files doubled through the T2 plus and the newly brought Salnotes Zero and CCA CRA...
The details were better.
Everything was clearer.
The bass was punchier and snappier and the resolution improved significantly.
I'm very happy and i firmly believe that you do not need more expensive dac , even for planar iems..
Instead spend your budget on iems .
The best planar under 20k
Can wear them for long sessions without fatigue, nice and comfortable.
BTR5 was perfectly recommended by Audio Store. and thanks for delivering within 24 hrs. With this i could listen to the details and njoy all kinds of genres except heavy metal...I am enjoying the 3.5 mm headfone much more than before now eagerly waiting to use it with 2.5 mm balanced....i have also used with car speakers which i didn't like and would not recommend this for the same.
After much reviewing & discussing with experts, decided to purchase this Headphone amps for my Massdrop Senheisser 6XX, which needed a powerful amp to drive the 300 ohms impedance.
I was blown away by the performance of this amps. And the finish and style of this amps is very much superior.
Worth every Rupee spent on this !!
Really manageable cable with no microphonics or noise....has made my Sundara sound better than stock due to 4.4 mm balanced option...go for it as there's no better option in 2k
The quality is very good and sturdy. I carry my Kz ZSN PRO X and Sennhiser cx 180 with Abigail dac on it. Got my ordered delivered very fast.
First of all thank you theaudiostore, for delivering within the given time, it got delivered two days before the estimate date of delivery.
These are really nice cable the build quality is great for the price.
It feels quite soft, no complaints regarding the build.
Talking about Sonic characteristics genuine speaking I didn't hear any drastic improvement or decrement in the sound quality.
What I feel it slightly increases the sibilance and sharpness in the higher frequency range.
I'm using it with my favorite SONY XBA A3. I know pairing these cable with Sony XBA flagship headphones it's quite weird choice but I believe the cables and not going to impact much on the sound quality.
In spite of wasting money on cable you could grab a better DAC.
Thank you 😊
I needed an IEM for replacement for my 1 more triple driver that got damaged. I already have a FIIO FH1S which has lossy treble so iI missed by 1 more triple driver sound signature. So 8 needed to occasioanlly have a different IEM. Initially thought of KZ ZSN pro but on the site ZS 10 pro was recommended so I purchased this. And I am not disappointed at all. For the price this one should actually compete with IEMs 3 times its price. I changed the eartips to foam ones. The lows are very slightly overdone but its fine. Regarding the store Audio store the color options that I wanted were availble here also it was few bucks lesser compared to other sites. My IEMS were delivered within 2 to 3 days. Extremely fast and intact packaging. Overall a great experience and definitely recommend anyone Audio store and also the KZ brand audio.
Stunning sound improvement
No Cables/ pure compact
Delivered within 24hrs , kudos to seller.
This is very good in both sound and in build. The sound is extremely good I would recommend that if someone wants to buy an IEM under 4000, this is the best at this price range.
Using this cable with Chord Mojo as it has only 3.5mm outs. This adapter works well with the earaudio balanced cable which I am using for the Hifiman headphones.
