Product Launch: Welcome the Moondrop Aria!

I’m sure most of us are familiar with Moondrop by now, the company has hit it out of the park at almost every price point with their VDSF target response offering a refined and balanced experience regardless of asking price. The Starfield was one of their most coveted models, an entry-level single DD model that built atop the success of their KXXS but at a lower price point. We reviewed the Starfield on THL where we found it to offer uncanny balance and timbral accuracy at its meagre price point but fairly middle-pack technical ability.

To address this, Moondrop have introduced the new Aria, the latest continuation of this line-up. It sports the same robust metal shell with ergonomic design lavished with a new matte-black paint coat that looks properly dapper. The Aria takes the brass inner cavity and CCAW voice coil of the Starfield and adds stronger N52 Neodymium magnets in addition to a revised LCP diaphragm. A newly designed phase waveguide also aids treble response and minimises distortion. Perhaps most impressive is the substantial cut to cost, now coming in at $80 USD. This will be especially appealing to international buyers due to exchange conversion, making Moondrop’s single-DD crowdpleaser more accessible than ever!

You can read more about the Aria and treat yourself to a set on Apos Audio or HiFiGO and keep your eyes peeled for a review coming soon to THL!
