1. Blessing 3 continues the physical frequency division framework of previous versions through the use of state-of-the-art 3D printing.

2. Blessing 3 utilizes a new horizontally-opposed double-dynamic bass driver module that delivers higher dynamic range and lower dynamic nonlinear distortion than previous versions.

3. The new scientifically-designed horizontally-opposed double dynamic driver module further demonstrates the advantages of the hybrid earphone in bass dynamics.

4. The frequency division design of Blessing 3 is the result of a long period of repeated experimentation and modification that has resulted in a doubling of the parameters and accuracy of the earlier Blessing 2, and even better acoustic indices.

5. The brand-new Blessing 3 faceplate features an eye-catching interplay of light and shadow, achieved by precision CNC machining followed by meticulous hand-polishing of the esthetically satisfying angular design.

6. The classic hybrid triple-frequency division of the Blessing series is the culmination of MOONDROP’s unparalleled acoustic expertise, backed up by repeated testing in the company’s measurement laboratory, and ensuring high full-band phase consistency.

Moondrop Blessing 3 : Truly a Blessing (3)
Pros: excellent technicalities,
great tonality,
clear and detailed vocals,
forward and snappy guitars
Cons: a little lean sounding (for my preference),
can be fatiguing to listen to for long periods
This is the Moondrop Blessing 3! It’s been a while since I’ve listened to one of these. I think this was one of the first “Expensive” IEMs, or perhaps even the first one I’ve tried almost a year ago now ? Back then I was really looking forward to reviewing one of these. The other pair I tested was a pair of Stellaris. But, I digress. How do they sound ? Especially after experiencing the Crimson, the Volur, and many more IEMs ? I think I’ve grown a lot since the last time I tried them. With the Blessing 3 Dusk around the corner now. It feels like it is a good time to revisit them! This unit here is another loaner from Jaben Surabaya. Thank you for sending them in for reviews!

Backstory + Sound Impressions
Back when I was first tried them on, I was still in love with my Moondrop Chu. I still remembered there was a note about the Blessing 3 that I wrote during the time. I said “The Blessing 3 has better micro details, I feel like I can hear the Bass String vibrating on Hotel California”. Which is weird because I only noticed that one time. The other time I tried looking for it, it didn’t show. I also wrote that the nozzle looks funny, because the eartips are just pressed on there. Which is kind of a problem now, as the eartips keep falling off the earbuds when I take them off. And… they ended up stuck inside my ears. Or, they became loose and rolled of the desk or something. Oh, the initial note from a year ago also mentioned that it sounds thin. I also wrote that it might need a DAC/Amp, which I do not own back then. However, now… it doesn’t sound thin at all. It is still considered “lean” but not thin. Which I don’t really mind, I think you could consider this as reference tuned IEM ? I personally enjoyed my time editing the Moondrop Variations video with this.

What I liked about the Blessing 3
Although technically it is a little too lean to be considered as a “fun” IEM to my taste. I think the Blessing 3 is fun enough to be daily driven. Where it really shines is actually the vocal presentation. Female vocals are airy, sparkly, clean, and well defined. Male vocals are strong, forward, and well defined. Guitars on Symphony of Destruction are forward and snappy, while the Bass is slightly clouded in the background. I personally don’t mind and it is to be expected from a “leaner” sounding IEMs. I think if you like guitars, vocals, and orchestra the Blessing 3 truly is a blessing for you.

Why I Always Switch to The Variations
Don’t get me wrong, the Blessing 3 is still a “fun” IEM. But the fun is different from something like the Variations, the 64Audio Volur, or even the Symphonium Crimson. The fun aspect of Blessing 3 is I think more of like a scavenger hunt fun. It is where you pick up some of the microdetails on certain recording or hearing something that you don’t notice usually. Although, from my experience. This kind of fun can be a little exhausting at times, more so than the analytical fun nature of the Symphonium Crimson. But, that’s just me.

What Music I Love to Listen to with The Blessing 3
I personally love listening to Danish National Symphony Orchestra with the Blessing 3. Like listening to them playing Welcome to Jurassic Park, Shallow, and My Heart Will Go On. Or listening to the acoustic tracks, such as Hikari by Miwa, La La Lost You by Niki, and Hotel California by Eagles. As the tracks works really well with Treble forward IEMs.



Overall, I think the Blessing 3 is excellent the Tonality are great, I give them a B, and the Technicalities are up there with some of the best. So they got an A on Technicalities. Also, something is also bugging me for some reason. I feel like whenever I pick up the Blessing 3 for a listen, at 2 or so hour mark. I feel a bit tense after listening to them ? Let me know what do you think happened in the comments section.

That is it ? That is the Moondrop Blessing 3! I would personally wait for the Blessing 3 : Dusk, as I would like to see what that version brings to the table. And with them showing up in CanJam NYC earlier. I think the release date is around the corner. Thank you again Jaben Surabaya for lending me the Moondrop Blessing 3 and the Variations. Hopefully, at the time this video is released. They’re already safe and sound at their rightful place.

I personally encourage you to watch my Here

Footnote :
My Source is the TimeEar BTE-222 connected to my PC most of the time. I judge them using various genres of songs. I narrowed down what I think sounds best in this Spotify Playlist here :

Head-Fi Special (Videos about this might be up soon)
Durability :

The unit is a store demo unit, so it is slight worse for wear. Considering the age of the unit, which is around 6 months according to my friend at Jaben Surabaya. They still look pretty good, the faceplate does have a lot of micro scratches, but it is to be expected. Honestly, I think it's not that bad. Considering the fact that it is a Demo unit after all. Although if you own this IEM or any other IEM, I think it is good practice to put them inside a case with Silica Gel in it. Oxidation is slightly starting on the inside of the Blessing 3. It is clearly displayed as the resin body are very clean and clear.

Great review, mate! I also prefer Variations to Blessing 3.
Thanks, Mate! Yes, I enjoy the Variations better than the B3. Even though the Variations is not perfect

A better Blessing
Pros: Amazing reference sound signature, technicalities, bass details, expansive stage, very pretty shell.
Cons: For the cost I would have liked a better cable and more tips, they are on the larger size and may not fit smaller ears. This is very source fickle and can be unforgiving with poor quality recordings.

Build quality was very good, I think on par with the second- Gen but I really liked the look of the original to be honest. The packaging is decent, to be candid I always thought the Kato unboxing was superior.
The case is more than adequate in size, the cable is good but not on par with other brands in this price range like Kinera. Tips are weird and it does take much time to find a second party tip that will not ruin the beautiful sound of the B3. I ended up with spinfit and symbio, the later didn't perform to my liking on this IEM. I found them large, so you'll not want to sleep with these on, but they were comfortable on me for a few hours at least.

The Bass is very good on this one and scales depending on source and music. It has the ability to dig down deep when listening to rap and K-pop and stay composed during acoustical. Both Mid and Sub are adaptive, have a good speed and neutrality. Bass in general is an improvement over the B2 but still can present a little thin.

Are excellent and present more balanced than neutral, they have a decent weight and timbre. vocals are placed perfectly and sound so natural and rich. This does both female and male quite good.

The highs present with a smooth almost neutral sound, medium energy level, and fine sense of openness. There are fine details but no harshness ever.
The stage is vast but not artificial. It lends itself well to live performances. openness, accurate and wonderful separation. can handle busy recording with ease.

The Blessing3 is a continuation of the B2 and also an improvement Bass wise. I think in general it is better tuned with some small improvements overall. It looks amazing and should be considered for fans of the B2.

Blessing 3 is a blessing of reference tuning which is surprising
Pros: Clear shell with comfortable fit
Great sound with every genre
Full and clear sound that's always smooth and natural.
Cons: Super picky on source quality such as tips , cable , file quality and genre
I have the blessing 2 like alot of of the reference loving fan out there and the blessing 2 is know as a king in that tuning department for $300 and under and when I heard it I was like wow , so refreshing because my preference is more toward audiophile basshead tuning and I can definitely enjoy other signatures as well . It had treble that was close to the limit for me being too much almost and bass was definitely lean and balanced not full enough to be natural but sound is open definitely. Then couple months later I see information on blessing 3 and it's coming out , I slowly waited for information day by day and when I saw that it had push pull DD technology I had to get it as I have many iems with that tech and know what can be done . Also graph was smoother In treble to but better extension. I bought it when it was released. I got mine from hifigo and waited to receive them . I got them and unboxing is always nice the shell was definitely bigger the the b2 and cable is ok to me . Fit is excellent. First impressions was like huh. Where is the bass and treble was kinda like b2 and mids felt recessed. So I put them away to burn in later for my review. I was trying non electronic music them but didn't test after so I didn't know what beast was hiding inside. Fast forward 2 weeks ago and I've tried other genre and with some burn in for loosening of diaphragm. And I got blown away with the bass Ive heard and the rest of the spectrum. Tried Rick Asthley and I started to dance with never gonna give you up.

Sound :
Bass: the bass is genre and music dependent with different style of music you'll get different presentations of bass quality and quantity. Bass can get close to basshead level when playing bass music and it'll stay fast like it supposed to be and on other genre like vocal music and pop , the bass is full and tight and textured also retaining speed with no distortion. Bass can play in different space too such as being close on some song and farther down in other songs , it can also be lean sounding too of genre has not much bass.

Midrange: I wasn't a fan on first listen as usually I love forward midrange that's fulla and natural but it was playing in deep recessed way with openess and I thought where is my vocals , had to turn up volume some which made treble also extra almost too much . But fast forward recently with burn In and my knowledge that this iem is super picky on source . I understand what happened and it was the recording quality and that wanted you to feel that massive open field of sound and distance and space. Then I tried electronic music and got forward full mids and vocals came out on being so realistic and tonally correct I was like What , how it changed so fast . What that happening I got the picture of the beast abilities. Can be 3D and full or grand and open or close and personal.

Treble : the treble wasnt my cup of tea on first listen and i was disappointed thinking my I bought the blessing 3, the blessing 2 is so similar and this is almost just as bright and thin. But fast forward now and I understand that sound technicality better and what it's capable of . The treble can sound bad only if the sources are bad and then you'd think this isn't worth the money and kz is so much better 😂. But the fact is this can go head to head with big boys from other brand IMHO . Treble can be full natural and oh so textured and always stay clear but never thin and splashy or distorted.

First impressions was like same as hearing blessing 2, open , thin and meh. But know I know it's all in the source and this beast will so you everything to max without negativity, unless you brought it up on yourself. This iem isn't for people using low end budget stuff or quality. You'll need at least midrange+ stuff to understand and to soon realize the full magic of b3 . The beast is awaiting, why not come and buy ASAP. 😆
