Moondrop takes great pleasure in introducing their first-ever Planar driver in-ear monitor - the STELLARIS. The sound performance of the STELLARIS is highly consistent with the VDSF Target Response and optimised for listening characteristics, bringing a more accurate sound reproduction with crisper and more natural details. Get ready to experience and delve into a pure sonic voyage with the all-new STELLARIS.
METICULOUSLY TUNED 14.5MM PLANAR MAGNETIC DRIVER DELIVERS SPINE-TINGLING SONIC PERFORMANCE
A planar driver is a transducer in which efficiency is traded for bandwidth. Its application in in-ear monitors is far less common than in full-size headphones, but its timbre has attracted favourable attention. Considering this, Moondrop has incorporated a large, 14.5mm planar driver into the STELLARIS to deliver a sonic performance never imagined or experienced before; in an in-ear monitor. Moondrop decided to incorporate this architecture and create a planar in-ear monitor that promises to deliver exceptional sonic performance. The 14.5mm planar driver has excellent nonlinear distortion performance and consistency for more stable sound quality and lower distortion. To precisely manage the system's resonance frequency: the driver's acoustic structure has undergone meticulous modification. The sound has a more realistic timbre allowing you to experience your recordings as naturally as possible.
DEVELOPED IN COLLABORATION WITH TUOYIN ELECTRONICS - THE PIONEER OF MINIATURE PLANAR MAGNETIC DRIVERS
Tuoyin Electronics Co., Ltd. is the first manufacturer in China to design and develop planar drivers for in-ear monitors. It has an outstanding record in the design and manufacture of; miniature planar drivers and owns many international patents. The 14.5mm planar driver is the result of; its excellent miniature; planar driver production QC and advanced technology, features far superior nonlinear distortion performance, acoustic consistency and product reliability. Leveraging Moondrop's rich experience and know-how in acoustic structure design and earphone tuning, "Moondrop" carried out precise modification of the acoustic structure of this driver and combined it with cavity adjustment to achieve exceptional sound quality performance.
STELLARIS DELIVERS FLAWLESS PERFORMANCE WITH EXCEPTIONAL SOUNDSTAGE AND PRECISE IMAGING CAPABILITIES
Moondrop STELLARIS delivers a flawless performance right out of the box. STELLARIS relies on the excellent nonlinear distortion of the 14.5mm driver and the time-proven acoustic tuning of the shell. It has an exceptional acoustic performance index; that lifts it above most planar in-ear monitors. The frequency response performance is highly consistent with the VDSF (Virtual Diffuse Sound Field) Target Response based on HRTF (head-related transfer function). The result is more accurate sound reproduction with more natural details. The driver in the STELLARIS is tuned to focus on the low, mid, high, and ultra-high frequencies. The result is a very holographic and airy sound which lets your music breathe and come alive. This design approach produces a more natural sound reproduction and pleasant listening experience with an expansive soundstage and precise imaging.
SPECTACULAR IRIDESCENT COLOUR PLAY DESIGN AND COMES BUNDLED WITH EARTIPS AND CABLE
Moondrop is the pioneer when it comes to designing its shells. The shell of the STELLARIS adopts the same iridescent finish as the Starfield, reflecting different colours under varying angles and light conditions. The golden hand-painted pattern resembles the starry theme of STELLARIS. The STELLARIS is among the top products in the Moondrop portfolio; that features a beautiful appearance. The shells' bodies feel heavier and have a distinctive appearance. Its entire look is this gorgeous purple starry night. The ear shells stand up outside your ear rather than sit in your concha because of the long spout. The STELLARIS offers a solid fit that stays in your ears without you experiencing any fatigue, even when you wear it for long listening periods. Moondrop has incorporated a thoughtful array of eartips to get you started. It comes with MIS-TIP & U.C.TIP. U.C. Ear-tips (Ultra Clear Tip), newly developed by Softears, are made of high-permeability liquid silicone. Based on ergonomic design, they fit far more snuggly in the ear canal than ordinary silicone ear tips, ensuring the lossless sound quality of bass under pressure, improved bass performance without bleeding into the treble, and all-around improvement. The package includes a functional cable with 0.78mm 2-pin and 3.5mm termination for easy connectivity with various sources.

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.

"The Stellaris is yet another great IEM from Moondrop. Not only is it affordable, but it carries a great sound. It features a wide and airy soundstage with clear details in the bass and mids and extraordinary texture"Read More
"The Stellaris are technically extremely proficient, and I think treble-heads will enjoy them – if the fit works. They are a very niche product, but I award them a 3/5 primarily due to their outstanding technicalities."Read More
"the MoonDrop Stellaris is a very pretty product, while it’s a very interesting product, it fails as an audio product in its most important dimension: tuning."Read More
"I cannot deny the admirable spread of frequency responses which will appeal to those who prefer a presentation that is closer to being neutral. Then the very sensible and mature presentation of Bass in general."Read More
"The Moondrop Stellaris has metal housings with the same glittery blue glossy enamel finish as the Moondrop Starfield. The left faceplate is illustrated with a comet design, and the right faceplate features a sun and a crescent moon."Read More
I cannot talk much as its my very first Planar experience ever and my God I am blown away with the level of detail Moondrop - STELLARIS Portrays on a sound canvas, it feels different from Dynamic and hybrid driver IEMs. The sub bass is so good, lacks a lot in the mid bass but very subtle, but it really shines in the vocals to bring out the texture very nicely, drums sound great, but the kicks lacks body anyways its all gameover when it comes to highs and that's the homerun, never felt harsh sibilance but the details and sound I heard on this IEMs, I never thought existed in some songs (you can even hear breath pauses in the vocals, the mechanism of kicks, string plucks and slides, etc.). It sounds different from any IEMs to the extent you may feel weird but you will love this weirdness as I did. I guess my words may not justify but the one who have listen to these IEMs may relate. For me its gonna be in my favorites' alongside, my PortaPros classic, FAAEAL Snow, KZ ESX and CCA CKX I love all of them in their own categories and they are all special to me. I use the MIS-Tips on Moondrop - STELLARIS which is in the box and thats the 5th star from me in the rating. Here I will conclude and I am happy to add Moondrop - STELLARISin my collection and having my best listening experience on this IEM.
Hi there, we are so happy you took out time and elaborately reviewed the product. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better and informed decision.
Honestly, I was infatuated with these IEMs from the first time I saw them because of how beautiful the design is. I love the Starfields, and the Stellaris one-ups them while keeping the same kind of design language.
But let's be honest, design only matters half as much as the sound. I am pleased to say that the Stellaris absolutely nails the sound too!
It's a relatively well balanced set of IEMs, though I found it slightly bass light. But the real pleasure of using these is in hearing the details. They are so crisp and so enjoyable to hear.
Haven't had any trouble driving them using a FiiO Q3.
My only gripe with them is the fit. Though they are comfortable in-ear, the super long stem means that the actual body of the IEM sticks out just a little too much. Luckily I found that the tips secure them quite well, but they do feel a bit odd at times and I could see other people really struggling to find a secure fit.
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!
