    Great review. The M5 is fun sounding while being technically very good. One could easily lost in the music with these. Depending on genre, sometimes I prefer the openness and vocal of the Elysium.

    When I put these on, I thought wow! Didn’t expect this level of sound quality at this price at all. Balanced, coherent and detailed. The only thing separate these with other iems at higher price, say 3x more expensive units, is probably the refinements.

    Announcing VARIATIONS——Your next tribrid option from MOONDROP

    No problem in the treble to my ears. The balance with the mids is excellent. If someone thinks the Blessing2 treble roll-off too quickly, this adds a little bit more airiness and balance to the mids. The only concern is if you don’t like the Monarch kind of sub-bass. The mids are very very good.

    I find many of this brand’s iems have this organic and coherent sound characteristic

    Announcing VARIATIONS——Your next tribrid option from MOONDROP

    Forgot to mention that, I had the copper cable for that impression. Driven by BTR5 single ended. Fit wise. I have smallish size ears. Pretty good fit to me. Build quality is nice, the aesthetic is very different from other iems, looks handsome to me.

    Announcing VARIATIONS——Your next tribrid option from MOONDROP

    The bass shell of the Blessing2 is there in the Variations. The S8 has a more neutral bass. It’s overall warmer than the S8. The soundstage of the S8 is further, like 8th row, the the Variation is like 3rd row. Overall the two sound quite different, full vs accurate. The mids is very nice, I...

    Softears - Discussion & Appreciation

    The S8 is indeed technically superior. I have heard Moondrop Blessing 2, S8, KXXS and Softears RSV, RS10, Cerberus, Turii. The house sounds of these two brands are unmistakable. Moondrop has a “wet”, “liquid” sound, and the stage is more out of the head, great for portraying believable stage...

    This is the only IEM I heard that having a rich treble did not take anything away from the mids. And, that soundstage is also the best I heard.

    H Having heard the Blessing2, the SA6 and the RSV, I agree with your summary. How do you compare the Mangird Tea to these iems?

    Great review. I agree with most of the impression here, except the treble peak. I always puzzled when people mentioned the treble peak, so much so that I specifically looked out for that. Yesterday in a headfi show held in Chengdu, I had heard 16-18 iems, each running through some test song...

    My own take on the FH5S after some hours. 1. This iem is for people who prefers a reference sound (non V-shaped). The bass is not elevated, nor the treble is tilted up like the FD5. This allows the mids to shine. It’s funny when I first audition it, right after hearing a pair of FD5, they...

    Just to share an impression here by a headfier on Erji.net http://erji.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=2225820 1. Good craftsmanship. 2. Tuning: solid, serious, mature, polite (as oppose to exciting) 3. FR is fine, the transitions are great, especially from the bass to mids. Coherent in...

    In my opinion, the conditions in the States and in East Asia are quite different. In the States, most people drive to work. In this part of the world, people live in small apartments, there’s little room for speakers, and they normally take public transport to work. And top of that, return...
