Sharp edges, big pieces... That's going to be not very comfortable for a lot of people

They've looked at Shuoer's Tape IEM and got jealous.

I'd give it a chance. Sparks are also a lot chunkier than their wired versions (here's Starfield next to Sparks) and I find them perfectly comfortable.

On the other hand I'm not a fan of the Chu form factor, so for me it's a gamble whenever the earpiece isn't concha-shaped

I'll give them a chance if I can return them. I've got big ear canals and s big tragus. Makes tws hard to find


fuzeebear t1_itrp6ii wrote

Yeah that's the hard part - you're stuck with 'em even if they don't fit.

Based on your description, I'd take a guess that you find an issue with nozzles feeling uncomfortable, with stuff like Bose QuietComfort other ones with oblique angled insertion tending to fit better than most?


wijnandsj t1_ittrzu5 wrote

No not quite.

Stems never feel comfortable, they always hurt. I do need an oblique angled nozzle. And I need big tips. I got XL spinfits for my wired buds, those stay in

moondrop posted pictures of this iem a while back on weibo, when it was first in production. it looked massive tbh, a lot bigger than something like sony's wf-1000xm3.

i'm pretty sure it won't have anc, if i recall correctly from a conversation on the shenzhen audio discord a while back, and it might be tuned like a 'wireless kato'.

as with any new release, it's all about pricing! moondrop has to price this well to compete - the tws market around 100-200USD is very good, with products like the new galaxy buds and final audio's tws lineup.

If they price at more than 100 USD, it wont sell well. Compare to Samsung Buds 2 Pro...the Moondrop is just over price Sony Xm3 with no ANC

I don't think they're going to try to sell tons of them I think it's going to be a more niche high margin product. This is not competing for a lot of the same years as people that will buy the Galaxy buds pro 2.

I guarantee you this will be expensive and high margin, and it won't sell a lot but they'll make a fair amount of each sale.

The value proposition for these are not going to be appealing to people that are shopping between stuff like Sony or apple or 1more.

Personally, I won't buy them in all likelihood but I understand the business model they're going for. I value active noise cancellation, price to performance, app support.

Although I think the Galaxy buds pro 2 have been pretty disappointing. Samsung has a lot of loyal Samsung users that pretty much buy anything they release. That does a lot of heavy lifting for them.


Theoneyouknowandask t1_itzmo7y wrote

Well yes, but actually no. Samsung have never disappointed me with any of their products. Unlike Sony and Apple

Starting to think Moondrop fluked out with their handful of successes.


pokeswapsans t1_iu9j6bt wrote

A majority of their products being the best I'm their class isn't a fluke lmao. We haven't even heard these yet eaither.


NonBinaryP t1_itqcxa8 wrote

big ass tws is a no for me, wish they made something like earfun free pro/fiil T2 pro


asineth0 t1_ittf66t wrote

Really excited for this one. Moondrop CEO said it would be a “wireless Kato with PEQ” and that sounds damn impressive.


bithalver t1_itrkk1e wrote

This is a very easy "NO WAY" for me.


Mieko24 t1_itr0zbe wrote

That's an absolute unit!


Solanum_Lord t1_itrtik6 wrote

I remember a discord log of these suggesting they'd come with PEQ, if so this could be quite the piece.


KilgoretheTrout55 t1_itu4yaa wrote

Trying to keep an open mind but not sure about that design. But I guess at this point it's nice to have different design language even if it's not for me


pokeswapsans t1_iu96l6h wrote

People complain about big tws but im a big fan of the galaxy buds line up. Idek weather it's that I don't even care about the size or if I PREFER the bigger size. Eaither way the most important things for me is sound and battery life.
