10mm Dual Cavity
MOONDROP PRESENTS THE ALL-NEW AND REDESIGNED ARIA SNOW EDITION
Moondrop has had great success in creating a line-up of IEMs that combine excellent audio quality and great looks. Launched in 2021, the Aria IEMs featured a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) and a composite structure that resulted in exceptional performance. Moondrop Aria was a revolution with its single dynamic driver setup that presented exceptional tonality and clarity with smooth bass texture. Moondrop Aria now gets an overhaul, with the all-new Moondrop Aria Snow Edition. As the name implies, Moondrop Aria Snow Edition has undergone a total redesign, sporting a brand-new CNC-milled metal gold casing with a visually stunning snowflake theme design that you will undoubtedly like flaunting!
EXCEPTIONAL SOUND DELIVERED WITH UPGRADED DYNAMIC DRIVER FUSED WITH DLC DIAPHRAGM
The first-generation Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) composite diaphragm of the Moondrop Aria Snow Edition replaces the original Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm that was integrated into Aria and incorporates a 10mm dual-cavity dynamic driver unit. The DLC diaphragm is a composite of nano-thickness diamond-like amorphous carbon deposited on a high internal resistance base material. It inherits much of the component configuration and acoustic structure of the original Aria. DLC diaphragm is classic in Moondrop’s terms as they have utilised the same previously in the famous Kanas Pro IEMs. With this new dynamic driver, the pair achieves a smoother performance with refined and better-detailed treble frequency response. The sound of the Moondrop Aria Snow Edition is more polished, transparent, and crisp. It has a consistent, distinct tone and produces a holographic, airy sound that will enrich your experience. The Moondrop Aria Snow Edition is bound to astound you right away.
FUSION OF ULTRA-FINE IMPORTED DAIKOKU CCAW VOICE COIL DELIVERING AN ENRICHING AUDIO EXPERIENCE
The Moondrop Aria Snow Edition is genuinely an upgrade and integration of high-quality hardware housing. It combines the 10mm dual-cavity dynamic driver with an ultra-fine imported Daikoku CCAW voice coil to provide a lightweight suspension system. Its interior cavity is made of brass, which serves to regulate and control the airflow. Outstanding electroacoustic performance is achieved by the DLC diaphragm composite material's high rigidity, excellent damping, and lightweight. The high-frequency waveguide structure of the Moondrop Aria Snow has undergone meticulous adjustment to benefit from the new DLC composite driver. The Moondrop Aria Snow uses unique structural developments in addition to the remarkable performance of tried-and-true legacy materials to provide a treble that is smoother and more polished with rich detail.
EXPERTLY TUNED FOLLOWING VDSF TARGET RESPONSE COUPLED WITH HEAD-RELATED TRANSFER FUNCTION
The Moondrop Aria Snow features a composite cavity, numerous tuning holes, and numerous acoustic dampers with varied values for precise frequency response adjustment, as do all Moondrop dynamic driver IEMs. The final tunning achieves all technical goals and presents an enjoyable listening experience. The Moondrop Aria Snow's frequency response closely matches the intended response, which combines the Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) and Room Response Function. Without the use of boosted bass frequencies designed to colour the timbre, it offers a wider vertical soundstage and real-time timbre performance. The Moondrop Aria Snow reproduces a more accurate instrument timbre. The Moondrop Aria Snow also features a Virtual Diffusion Sound Field (VDSF), a design idea that the engineers at Moondrop came up with during the development of several IEMs. The purpose of the VDSF technology is to replicate the recording's tonality and soundstage. VDSF implements technology in multiple fields, including a target response based on the frequency domain performance. Several of their highly regarded IEMs, like Blessing 2, Kato, and KXXS, among others, have the VDSF target response design.
BUNDLED WITH PREMIUM 6N OXYGEN-FREE COPPER SILVER-PLATED DURABLE CABLE WITH AN INTERCHANGEABLE CABLE OPTION
The Moondrop Aria Snow Edition IEMs feature an ergonomic shape, designed to offer a snug fit and comfort for your ears. The incredibly smooth earphone body adapts comfortably to your ear shape. The solid body and functional design of the "Moondrop Aria Snow Edition'' add to its unique architecture, being more reliable. You won't experience any issues when ingressing or egressing the IEM because it fits snugly with the well-acclaimed Moondrop spring tips. The Moondrop Aria Snow Edition has a 0.78mm 2-Pin connector and a replaceable 6N oxygen-free copper silver-plated cable with a high-permeability protective covering and 3.5mm termination. For any situation, you have the choice to swap out the stock cable for a with-mic cable, a Bluetooth cable, a balanced cable, or an after-market upgrade cable.
A VISUALLY APPEALING SNOWFLAKE THEME FUSED WITH METAL MOLD CASTING AND CNC MILLING
The build and design of Moondrop IEMs have always been the benchmark in the audiophile industry. The legendary Aria had achieved critical acclaim, and Moondrop Aria Snow followed suit. The ergonomic metal shell of the Moondrop Aria Snow was created utilising the same high-precision metal mould casting and CNC machining techniques as its predecessor, the Aria. With a sophisticated and aesthetically beautiful snowflake concept that perfectly complements the visual theme of the earphones, the Moondrop Aria Snow uses a brand-new surface treatment that highlights its metal feel. You will have no issues with ear fatigue as the edges have been rounded up to give you the best possible experience.

A TEAM OF PASSIONATE ENGINEERS DESIGNING HI-TECH AND PREMIUM AUDIO PRODUCTS
Something that started as a small studio by passionate engineers transformed into a company producing HiFi audio products. This shift happened in the year 2014 when Moondrop started developing earbuds and in-ear headphones. After overcoming a lot of challenges, Moondrop emerged as a brand in the year 2015. As for the first step Moondrop designed small open earbuds like the VX (debut product) and Liebesleid (2017) which garnered fame for Moondrop among professionals and audio lovers. Over time, Moondrop grew to be acknowledged as a company developing, manufacturing and distributing high-performance earbuds. The company then went on to produce well-received in-ear monitors like the IX, Kanas, Blessing, A8 and Reference putting it in the league of premium IEM manufacturers. After years of constantly developing itself, Moondrop now has its own development and manufacturing line along with a supply and operating chain. The modern-day Moondrop products feature innovative technology and well-crafted materials that help Moondrop to redefine its limits. Moondrop works within the corporate industry as well by investing, acquiring and corporate projects to consolidate a broader view together for a better tomorrow.

My experience with this purchase was a rollercoaster to say the least. Initially I had some accessories missing upon unboxing but, Thanks to the HeadphoneZone's excellent support team, the incident was handled efficiently and I was provided with a new replacement unit.
The first thing that comes to my mind looking at the gorgeous Moondrop Aria SE is Game of Thrones reference : Winter is coming. It is just simply well designed and is one of the most beautiful looking IEMs at this price point. It is eye catching! Fit is just perfect. Owing to the perfect fit, it is comfortable to wear for longer durations. I have worn them for 9 hours straight on day and didn't feel any irritation or pain in my ears. But, fit is going to vary depending on the individual. The white metal body of the Aria SE stays 3-4°C below the surrounding temperature and gives a cool/relaxed feeling to my ears which gets hot quite a lot. The passive noise isolation with the spring tips is really good.
I think Moondrop has fixed the paint chipping issue, which I faced with my Aria OG, here. The improved tangle free cable in Aria SE is 100x better than Aria OG's(which were, for a lack of better word, shit!)
If you are particular or picky about bass, DO NOT buy these IEMs, you will be disappointed. The bass is toned down here from Aria OG. The upper mids are boosted just enough, that the sound is much clearer. Vocals, especially the female vocals come out really good and smooth. So does acoustics. Treble is well managed and they haven't done anything special, which is good but, It has less background information than Aria OG due to less treble extension above 10kHz. Sound staging and instrument separation is great. It is the most detailed IEM for the cost. (Try listening to "If We Were Vampires" by Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit to find it out yourself). The timbre is just extraordinary and the sound is pretty close to the original. Acoustics, Country, Jazz and some Pop songs sound incredible! Bang for buck!
Confused about Aria SE or Aria OG? Keep it simple!
ARIA SNOW EDITION
--Cleaner Sounding Audio
--Better Build quality with low probability of paint chipping
--Warmer and more exciting audio

Hi there, we are so happy you took out time and elaborately reviewed the product with a comparison. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better and informed decision.
really great out of the box and after just simply adding a eq using auto eq they are just beautiful sounding
Thank you for your feedback on this product, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product.
A Great IEM. Highs are smooth, Mids and excellent and lows are good enough. If you are a basshead, it's not for you. If you are someone who is looking for great mids and highs, this is well worth the money you spend.
I upgraded from a KZ ZST and this is a worthy upgraded thanks to HPZ team for recommending me this.
We're really happy that you have such positive thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!
I am new to this hobby, aria se is my first iem
My initial impressions :-
The built quality is really good, it fits well in my ears but u have to try out other tips and choose ones which fits you properly
Sound wise , these are my first iems and I am not an audiophile so my ears might not pick up some things but here's my impression, these have a very detailed sound there is a clear emphasis in vocals and midrange, bass might not be sufficient for a bass head but it is tight and just enough
Thank you for your genuine feedback on this product, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product.
Well kind of mixed feeling, I initially ordered Aria 2021 edition! As it was out of stock. Had to go with Snow edition.
Heard that Aria has good low tones, bass is powerful. Well snow has right amount of bass and clear mid tones and crystal highs.
Give it a time and you will like the snow for sure.
I am loving it and it's one of my daily drivers.
Using with foam tips will give best results, I have tried all rest.
Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!
Straight out of the box, it's design is amazing. Sounds very good , close to Harman Target 2019 v2 with a warmer tone. And for its 80$ price , it's one of the, if not the best. Only issue i faced so far was comfort. Long sessions were not as comfortable as I'd expected, my ears started to hurt. Although it entirely depends upon personal build - how ur ears are shaped , what ear-tips you used etc (I used the spring tips from Moondrop)
Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!
