A powerful symbol, a unique weapon with rich energy.
MOONDROP has rich experience in developing hybrid IEM, recently, they announced the latest hybrid flagship IEM, DARK SABER! As befits a worthy addition to MOONDROP’s flagship line, the Dark Saber is handcrafted by skilled technicians. Dark Saber’s flawless crystal-clear body and unique faceplates are outstanding example of the finest modern technical handiwork. Let's see how it performs!
The design goal of Dark Saber is to fully restore punchy dynamics and pure natural sound. To achieve this goal, the two dynamic drivers and eight balanced armatures on each side have been designed using scientific performance analysis to distribute balanced energy to the three frequency bands and thus ensure excellent performance across the full frequency range.
Two integrated 10mm dynamic drivers, four custom mid-range balanced armature drivers, and four Knowles high-range balanced armature drivers ensure a solid high-quality foundation for each band. MOONDROP’s rich experience in designing physical + circuit 2-way crossovers enables 10 drivers with different characteristics to perform optimally in their respective frequency bands, and eliminates connection problems.
The new scientifically-designed horizontally-opposed double dynamic driver module further demonstrates the advantages of hybrid earphones in bass dynamics. H.O.D.D.D.U.S (Horizontally Opposed Dual Dynamic Drivers Unit System) uses dual 10mm dynamic drivers arranged closely and symmetrically using 3D-printed modular components. The components form a physical band-pass filter comprising two independent filtering structures and damping devices, thereby facilitating acoustic adjustment.
The symmetrical HODDDUS arrangement focuses the magnetic field at the magnetic gap of the two dynamic drivers, leveraging the same principle found in planar magnetic earphones. This not only improves energy conversion efficiency, but also further reduces nonlinear distortion.
Only by ensuring full-frequency phase consistency can we ensure the accurate articulation of each crossover frequency band, so that the headphones can deliver the correct sound field image and natural timbre articulation. Full-band phase consistency is the core requirement of MOONDROP’s R&D team for multi-driver in-ear headphones, and the Dark Saber is no exception.
Most high-end earphones emphasize resolution by changing the timbre of the mids and highs. Dark Saber, on the other hand, aims to achieve high resolution, enhanced soundstage, and authentic timbre by adjusting and optimizing the hardware without altering the timbre and imaging.
The Dark Saber’s striking faceplates are made from an expensive, state-of-the-art material previously used in ultra-luxury sports watches. This material is made of hundreds of layers of high-strength carbon fiber subjected to ultra-high-pressure and high-temperature treatment. It combines the high-strength performance and ultra-lightweight characteristics of super-metal materials. The molding process generates a unique faceplate texture that epitomizes the merging of technology and aesthetics.
Dark Saber ships with a 0.78mm 2pin interchangeable design that meets user requirements for different cables or accessories (such as MOONDROP LittleWhite Bluetooth Neckband cable or FreeDSP complex function decoding cable).
In order to make it easier for users to better match their equipment to bring out Dark Saber’s reference-level sound quality, we have provided as standard a newly designed interchangeable plug headphone cable. The cable that ships with Dark Saber is made of a combination of Litz structural copper and silver plating, and the plug uses a new screw-on replaceable design that combines elegance and practicality.
Thanks to the luxury materials and top built-in design, Dark Saber offers an eye-catching look and generous performance. Don't miss it!
