A sequel release for MOONDROP ARIA series
by C G on Oct 30, 2023
MOONDROP has offered us a strong lineup of affordable IEMs on the market, this lineup includes the original Aria, which has been highly praised since it's released. Today, MOONDROP updates us on an over-performing successor of Aria. What can we expect from Aria2 in terms of sound signature? Keeping reading.
The Aria2 adopts the dynamic driver design of internal and external composite magnetic circuit + composite independent brass cavity that is used in mid-range competitors and provides a solid hardware acoustic foundation.
What’s different is that Aria2 not only incorporates the technology of flagship products, but also features a new generation of cavity acoustic design, including easily replaceable acoustic components and a high-reliability pressure vent structure with bass booster plugs. Aria2 has them all!
Aria2 adopts MOONDROP’s mature patented dynamic driver structure, delivering accurate audio presentation and low-distortion wide dynamic response through a special large dynamic long-stroke symmetrical magnetic circuit and acoustic cavity resonance control system. Aria2 effortlessly achieves outstanding front-end linearity.
It offers a nonlinear full-frequency distortion below 0.05%, resulting in natural timbre and the reproduction of even the most subtle details.
Aria2 uses a newly developed TiN ceramic-coated dome composite diaphragm developed by MOONDROP. The two-step processing of three materials achieves a smooth treble response surpassing that of a metal-coated diaphragm, and ultra-low distortion performance that is lower than that of other crystalline-coated diaphragms. It delivers excellent treble detail and extension without any granularity or roughness.
The Aria2 shell is manufactured using alloy casting and CNC milling, and is secured with customized screws to eliminate damage from adhesive aging and failure under external force. The brand-new CMF design contributes to an engagingly fresh look.
The pressure vent of Aria2 adopts a brand-new off-center diversion structure to effectively counter the negative effect on sound of proximity to the ear concha.
The nozzle of the Aria 2 consists of a separate brass CNC-milled component, with a gold-plated surface offering higher precision and density, and resulting in beautiful timbre.
Aria2 incorporates a new generation of replaceable acoustic filters. The front end of the brass nozzle consists of a removable tip, allowing users to replace the acoustic filter quickly and conveniently.
Replacement is far easier compared with existing multi-layer filters, and the design makes for greater reliability. In the event of blockage or damage, the cost of replacement is much lower than that of standard nozzles.
Aria2 uses a universal 0.78mm interchangeable cable, allowing users to replace the cable or accessories (such as MOONDROP Littlewhite Bluetooth neckband or FreeDSP) for different usage scenarios.
In order to make it easier for users to better match the devices to dig out the reference sound quality of Aria2, the newly designed cable with interchangeable plugs come along. Aria2’s cable is made of copper and silver-plated with Litz structure, and the replaceable plugs are a newly designed screw-type fixed, which has both design and practicality.
