The Moondrop Starfield is the star of any musical performance. With its powerful dynamic drivers and high-end sound chambers, make your music come alive. The sparkly design gives you a look at a constellation even during the day.The IEM that Makes Your Music Shine
Experience the pinnacle of high-quality sound with the Moondrop Starfield. The high-performance dynamic drivers are engineered using strong Neodymium magnets and lightweight Japanese Daikoku's CCAW voice coils. The 6-micron thick diaphragm is made from a composite of carbon nanotube array warp and weft knitted in a polymer film. This makes for excellent transient response, high dynamic range, and smooth and clear sound.
For a Delicate, Musical Performance
The Moondrop Starfield uses the same balanced three-frequency distribution as the KXXS. What's different though, are the materials used to deliver a warmer and softer experience. Unlike the KXXS, the Starfield offers delicate sound with excellent bandwidth and incredibly low distortion. It retains the musical performance and detailed quality.
For a Smoother Sound
Every detail of the Starfield is taken care of so that you enjoy a rich musical journey. To control the air damping of the diaphragm, this in-ear monitor features a dual-cavity structure. The inner cavity is brass-plated and has five pressure relief holes in the basin frame. This improves the energy balance of the frequency band and offers a smooth tri-band transition.
Hold a Star in your Hands
Just like its name suggests, the Moondrop Starfield showcases a stunning design that’s equivalent to the beauty of a constellation. It uses a unique paint technology that, under different lighting conditions and angles, make the IEMs sparkle with a different gradient of colours.
Cables that Add the Perfect Sparkle
The Starfield comes with a 0.78mm 2-pin detachable cable. Each wire in the cable uses a 24 AWG Litz structure with 4N purity Oxygen-Free Copper. The outer jacket is covered with a pearlescent power so that it sparkles in the light. The detachable nature of the cable makes upgrades easy.
I was always looking for Aria, but before I knew it was available in audio store, it has gone.
I bought star field then, and now I am happy about my purchase. I can listen to any genre of music for very long.
Everything is great about starfield.
The only okayish part is the thin cable. But I use my ms2 cable and settled.
I recommend starfield
Really liked the out of the head experience from this IEM. sounds musical for me. I ordered a spinfit CP145 as the default ear pads doesn't fit properly. With spinfit it sounds perfect for me.
This deserves all the hype and praise. Detailed sound signature especially at the low end, which makes it easier listening to whispering dialogues in movies. Ensure you get an effective fit with the right buds as they are more important than balanced cable. Using the 3.5 mm cable in box and they still sound awesome when paired with BTR5.
The sound quality is amazing for the price. Slightly boosted bass. Soundstage is pretty good and feels very spacious. While the sound quality is 10/10, the rest of the aspects are subpar. The included cable is of very poor quality. I got the BQEYZ C9 cable and it is pretty good. It is hard to get a good fit with the included eartips. I was able to get a good fit with Spinfit CP145 and the bass eartips of Fiio FH3.

The spinfit w1 is a cool eartip , fits in well , as the eartip is translucent the bass is less , but the clarity is good
When you talk about audio, I feel like you always have to define your baseline because the experience is so subjective. In that sense, before I bought these IEMs, my daily listening device was Sennheiser HD 598S, so thats what I'm going to largely compare it to. Also I've now been using the earphones for more than a year, so this will be like a long term review.
My main reason for purchasing IEMs was that good headphones are simply not portable. I wanted something that I could take anywhere, and would sound good on mobile hardware as well. It was bit of a weird thing to go for a portable device that would be more than twice as expensive as my daily driver, but after doing a lot of research on audiophile websites, I realised that this thing here was in somewhat of a unique space in what it offered for the price range.
The first thing I noticed after getting these IEMs, even before the burning in period, was the sheer clarity of sound, specifically till the high mids. The vocals sounded crystal clear compared to my 598S, and although Sennheisers are generally considered strong in their mid range, and that is true when it comes to the power, they didn't hold a candle to the Blessing 2s when it comes to precision. It shouldn't have been that much of a surprise really, considering the Blessing 2s are couple of price brackets above, but having never had a proper IEM before, I was truly surprised something with such a small form factor could sound so good. Needless to say that my old daily driver was summarily drawered (binned is too harsh), and has been sat there collecting dust.
Even though this has a dedicated dynamic driver for bass frequencies, bass is not that powerful on this device. I'm not a basshead by any margin, but I would have like just a bit more punch. That said though, the clarity here also is very good compared to my old sennheisers, and I've grown to enjoy the subtle bass now. Its a bit like when you move from putting sachets of sugar in your tea to just one. Feels not enough in the beginning, but soon enough your taste buds get used to it. Our ear's sensitivity is not static, so don't worry too much about this.
What can definitely be seen as bit of a con though is that the highs are not that great. There is a shrillness and edginess to them that could use more work. If you listen to stuff that has a lot of high frequencies, this might not be for you.
That's it about the tonal quality. Since this is a long term review, I'll talk a bit about more practical things also, like the build and ergonomics.
First off, the modules themselves are quite large. I don't have small ears, but they do stick out a little and look like hearing aid devices which people with hearing deficiencies use. And all that largeness is not just for show, they are also slightly weighty compared to a lot of other IEMs I've held.
The cord that these things come with is gorgeous. It looks good, feels good, and holds good. I think even in 5 years time, the cord will still be pristine.
The earbuds that come with this are of three different sizes, and you get 2 pairs of each size. Unfortunately, there is no notch or lip on the tapered end of the module to hold the earbuds in place. Fairly soon, you'll find the earbuds slipping out and falling down, or remaining stuck in your ear while you pull the earphone out, which can be a bit annoying. To fix this I purchased some buds of one size smaller, so that they'd fit tightly and hopefully hold, but that also did not work for long. Finally, I've simply resorted to gluing the earbuds with fevikwick. Not the best experience here.
Another thing that I wish I'd known earlier is that the resin body, which is transparent and looks lovely, is extremely brittle, although it feels very smooth and you'd think that it might have some pliability. Resting your IEMs on a hard surface like a desk, will produce a sharp "clack" sound and after a while you may start noticing that the resin is cracking. I'd suggest to always place them in the case they come with, or on some soft padded object. Even when you've plugged them in, rest the actual modules in the case when not using.
Thats it for the review. Props to you if you read all that.
TL;DR knowing how they are now, would I make the same purchase again if I could go back in time? Abso-damn-lutely.
Quality and works as it is described
I didn't realize how good these sounded until I plugged them into Tempotec V6 using the balanced connection. Technically sound and quite musical. Performs excellent with more power. Truly a champ..bye bye Monk plus...
It was problematic from day 2 it was always stopping in the midde and its kinda irritating
Fiio cable refined music and better sound generated
The cable has stood the test of time well so far. Can't complain!
A must have dongle DacAmp for anyone who wants to drive their IEM's to the limit.
This IEM will stay with me for a very long time. Superb for daily listening and also an excellent refrence point for premium IEM's.
Superb player at the price point
Excellent cables. Using it with Monarch MK2 which has decent stock cables, but Dromi definitely takes it to the next level.
Amazed by the sound output and the clarity that it produces, You can really feel the difference in the sound when you use your earphones without this DAC, and even better is the price that you get it for and would definitely recommend for someone who is looking for a DAC in a budget.
The sound quality is fantastic, with the right amount of bass and treble. Adds more punch and juice when used with a DAC and the sound will blow you.
