Moondrop is a name on everyone’s mind, producing winner after winner. The Blessing 2 was perhaps one of their most famous models, that offered an excellent mix between refined, Harman-inspired tonality and a resolving 5-driver hybrid setup. The new variations seek to build atop this foundation. From the outset, we see a Blessing inspired shell design, now with smoke acrylic shell as opposed to transparent. In addition, the faceplate design has been revised with a new geometric pattern and sand-blasted finish.
But it’s what’s inside that’s really exciting, the Variations uses a Sonion’s high-performance EST tweeter system complemented by two custom Soft Ears BA drivers for the midrange and a 10mm LCP dynamic driver woofer. These drivers have been tuned according to the company’s popular VDSF tuning curve and 3D-printed acoustics promise near full frequency phase coherence. A 6N high-purity crystal copper cable completes the experience.
Perhaps most surprising is the price point, at $520 USD, the Variations undercuts the vast majority of earphones with such a comprehensive driver setup. This is shaping up to be another strong entry into the Moondrop lineup! You can read more about the Variations and treat yourself to a unit on Apos Audio (affiliate) and HiFiGO!
