Moondrop Quarks earphones feature a unique fully enclosed front cavity design. This design implementation helps in reducing external noises and gives the user a high level of noise isolation. Due to this unique design, users will be able to listen and enjoy music undisturbed even in noisy places. This design also provides a comfortable fit to the users for longer listening sessions.
Moondrop Quarks earphone features a 6mm micro dynamic driver that is highly capable of sound reproduction. This driver benefits from an external N52 neodymium magnetic architecture, a high-quality polymer diaphragm coil, and an imported CCAW voice coil. This provides excellent dynamics and lowers nonlinear distortion. The drivers are specially designed and tuned for a neutral tone and are easy to drive. It reproduces a rich sound with balanced frequency response. These earphones are sure to suit your music with their high-resolution clarity.
The Moondrop Quarks earphones have been specifically tuned by experts at the company. The tuning adjustment took over two years to achieve their preferred sound signature - which is a neutral & natural sounding tuning following the Head Related Transfer Function (HRTF) frequency response curve. The earphones have a wide frequency response range of 4Hz-43kHz allowing you to enjoy music with clarity.
Moondrop Quarks earphones adopt the second generation patented anti-blocking sound damping structure in order to maintain high-resolution performance. This also helps in improving the durability of the earphones and reduces blockage caused in the nozzle area due to earwax buildup. Moondrop has designed a double-damping structure using two different materials with completely different acoustic resistance to filter different frequencies. This enhances the sound by greatly eliminating treble ringing and making the sound natural and enjoyable.
Moondrop Quarks earphones feature a unique structural design that is revealing. The shells of the earphones are fully transparent and are compact in size for a comfortable wearing experience. The transparent cavity allows for a clear view of the driver and acoustic structure. This is truly an exquisite and unique approach to earphone design.

If you are coming from a sub 1000 rupee cheap iem, look no further. This will step up your ear to start understanding what a hi-fidelity, tuned, well balanced iem will sound like. In short, this is a Bang for Buck buy and a gateway drug to your audiophile journey!
Now let me get into the audiophile shoes and use appropriate terms. Out of the box it is lacking in sub bass and is a tad muted in the upper mid range. It not at all shouty like its counterparts in the same price bracket! Burn the iem in for atleast 40hrs to get its actual sound signature. For the uninitated do a google search to understand this initiation ceremony!
Yes it is tuned to harman curves which, to the new Audiophile(because you become one when you buy this) means it would sound neutral and relaxing. It will scale well with a dedicated dac/amp like a Fiio btr3k rather than your phone's output or laptops headphone out. That is you will start hearing more separation of sounds in your music. You will hear things like finger twangs on the a guitar fret board or the breath intake of the singer etc.. That will change how you appreciate music.
It is an all plastic but well built unit for the price. Moondrop has invested more into the sound than the build. To me, it looks like it can take the stress of normal use as an everyday iem. I would recommend to use 3rd party eartips like the Spinfits or complys to get the most comfort and listening pleasure. Out of the box silicon tips are substandard and you may find it not fitting well into your ears.
Now strap on and get ready for the ride, Good luck!
Thank you fir the detailed review, surely going to help our customers to make an informed decision. Cheers & keep the music playing!
A well balanced and neutral sound signature. Not the musical tuning but closer to harman tuning. But at this price there's nothing to complain except the cable which kinda sucks. Go for it, you won't find this kind of sound under rs 1000.
You're new to the audiophile world and listened to Boat Bluetooth headphones all your life, and now realizing that you've missed so much ? Yes, you can buy this headphone your eyes closed.
You are audiophile ? have expensive IEMs Portable DAC& and scared to use it outside 'cause of sweat and rain? or are you scared that someone will steal your IEM in local train? Yes you can buy this.
You know audio(studied audio on the internet) and yet it's your first purchase, though don't have any DAC&. Please don't buy this, this IEM is very very amp depended, it opens like a butterfly when amped. Unless you have at least Apple 3.5mm Dongle [Yes it is a DAC&] , you can train your ears with less expensive earphones like Audio Technica CLR100.
Recommendations aside, this is a gem. Clear like Elon Musk at only 999/-. Subass is there and you can hear it slightly. Bass is there and it is fast & controlled. Decay is Outstanding for its price. The soundstage is okay too but imaging is good and quite accurate. The treble sparkliness isn't there, though it is airy and present but this IEM is nowhere bright.
Midrange is the focus here, female vocals sounds very realistic, male vocals are not as good as female but still impressive. Instrument separations and speed is good enough.
So glad you are loving your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience & thanks for the feedback. Cheers!
It's a bang for buck product. I bought this for watching movies, video, and for some casual listening. i would say they have very good vocal which are well tuned by moondrop as without any sibilance. One star less due to the bass, its not that punchy or something hits your chest at every drops and while watching movies there slight experience is missing but they are very good for the speeches and details. For music listening its good to. They can easily powered by regular smartphone yet a dedicated DAC/AMP helps for its fullest potential. They are very balanced so if you are a bass head look for something else. I am happy with my purchase, thanks to Headphone zone..!!
Having owned a few of moon-drops other waifu filled goodness's this one was a no brainer , and i am lucky it was a no brainer as this is a rather good iem even at the sub 50 dollar range it does stand out . Its size is so smol its scary while the build not being the best for example on mine there was a bit of glue residue on the nozzle but it was not too hard to remove , the plastic used is good and the cable being kinky is a lot better than the old kz cable and even the ety er2se cable i have . the best comparison to it in from the range would be the ssp as both are a slightly bassy and treble filled iem but i have to say the quarks is way better than the ssp (ssp is in general just bad tbh ssr team rise up ) . now for listening i used the stock tip and that fits fine and all and will fit most fine too and moon drops tips always have been pretty good but as this iem has no vents some deep fitting dual flanges will work well with these and that is exactly what i am using with them and fitting them deep into my ears the isolation is superb whilst not as good as the etymotic memes they are really good . i would say a solid 30 ish db of noise isolation better than most anc but not as good as the 35 plus on the ety series . Now to the reason you buy iems the sound it is pretty good the bass is something that surprised me as being very detailed especially the mid bass and the thump is real here . Whilst for the mids and treble they was nothing much to not they are good and in general moondrop fashion the treble is on the shout side as some say but for me personally is good.. the sound-stage is wide kinda . the akira soundtrack dolls polygamy its wide but on others not so much . So tldr 5/5 the cable is kinda meh but is way better than some and the build is not the best but hey its a 1k iem . overall worth it
Thanks for the detailed review, so delighted that you are loving your iem & we hope it was a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!
Comfortable to wear for longer hours, best for podcast, light weight, good for work from home if you are listening to music with work
We thank you for this lovely review & we are glad you are enjoying it! Keep the music playing.
Easily beats kz edx, trn mt1, one more piston fits, kz zstX. Easily one of the best sounding iems out there under 1k.
