Please read fully - hope I will help you to give some clarity

Moondrop SSR, it will amaze you based on your music taste and sense

Strictly not for EDM kind songs

If your playlist contain lots of classical stuffs, soft melodies of 80s 90s , and if you are the person who prefer to listen music at volume level 50 to 60% , Go 4 This

I landed to this cuz of extreme reviews, both positive and negative, so obviously too much curiosity aroused

First I tested with my iPad ., (Before burning) it sounds really good at volume 75% - song " unna nenachu" from Psycho , the guitar strings hit directly my head :) it's just great.

Then i tried "Thooriga" - Guitar Kambi Mele Nindru (for the past 1 month all 4 tracks in loop, lovely album) with

my OP7 , Ak xb 10 dac , Neutron Music player

I Just hiked bass little and volume at 85.... suddenly a rattling sound started at right side..MILD DISTORTION🤦‍♂️😔
Then I googled to know if any one faced this same , an Amazon reviewer said the same and he also mentioned even after replacement he is experiencing the same, so i thought it's a tuning issue
I changed the wires to 2.5mm same issue in that also
Checked with power amp ,no improvement

But USB audio player handled this well seems like the Auto gain option is very accurate , so even if tried to increase the bass , no rattling happened

I suggest it's better to leave all the Equalizer to be FLAT
Now I burned this approx 30 plus Hours , sounds slightly better ,hope it will get much better after 20 more hrs

Hope my review gave you some clarity

Note : if you are new to IEM , just go 4 BLON 03, it's very balanced drivers , and it will handle all kind of genres brilliantly

Note 2 : After complaining about NO EARTIPS AND POUCH IN PACKAGE, HPZ CR called and apologize ,they request me to return but I don't want to return cuz I have to wait for 1 more week already waited for 1 month it's almost 1 month out of stock

HPZ offered me a KZ foam tips and eliptical shape pouch

That's a good customer service., Thank you HPZ team
(But still it's a Master blunder by Moondrop manufacturing team, their QC level is bad)

The best mids and treble you can get for the price

I bought this after viewing The Honest Audiophile and zpolt reviews.
I was getting tired of the typical V shaped sound signature of budget IEMs, they have their place, they are fun to listen to. But it is in the mids that all the action happens, it is the home of vocals, guitars, synths, snare and most orchestral instruments. People are missing a lot when the go for a V signature, sure they are fun, they have universal appeal, they are a blind safe buy for most but a significant aspect of music is purposefully recessed in a V.
Having said that, this may seem a bit bright and "shouty" for some, it may sound a bit sterile.
But if you are willing to take the risk, you may in for a pleasant surprise and realise how much you have missed in your favourite music.

Hi Joel, we really appreciate the time you took to write such a detailed review! This will surely help the other customers while making a purchase. Happy listening!

A detour from the conventional " V ".

First and foremost ,kudos to Team Headphonezone for providing such an amazing shopping experience, punctual delivery and a pleasing unboxing experience.
I've bought two entirely different sounding IEMs, the wonderful KZ ZSN Pro X earlier, and now the enthralling Moondrop SSR .
Moondrop SSR amazes you with its comfort, clarity, buttery smoothness, good separation and unique tuning. It's bright, mid-centric and has elevated highs. For bass, what is lacking in quantity is well compensated with quality, rich texture and swift impact. Vocals and strings are a bliss to hear in SSR.
I'm certainly impressed with these tiny IEMs and I appreciate its unique tuning.
This is undoubtedly not for bassheads but you will be surprised to enjoy details with the Moondop SSR in a way you've never experienced before with the typical V- shaped sounding gear.

HI Umashankar,
We are glad you had a comfortable shopping experience with us & it is delightful to read such positive reviews on your product! Cheers & Welcome to the club!

Believe in Moondrop..Such a beauty.

Hi, If u didn't heared about the name Moondrop i would like to say at they are pretty nice brand giving exceptional quality of Hifi products at first and for past 7 years they are making greatest IEM in the markets and in I've already have used
their moondrop spaceship and am so much impressed with that...I was bit worried coz many of the reviewers said there is sharp trebles and shouty sound which is highly disturbing to ears and to be honest initially i feel the same when i had first impression with my ssr's but thanks to Headphone zone guys they sent me a mail mentioning a pro tip about "burning" seriously i have not done anything like burning process to my earphone and i thought it is tough to do my spending so much time on it but its quite easy just plug your earphone to ur phone play some songs at min volume of 70% and leave it for overnight while you sleep when u wake up in the morning you will feel drastic improvement of audio quality from your earphones( this method suits and work for every earphones).Coming to my review,once if you get this SSR u feel this the best quality earphone in the market, top notch build quality i think it's made of wolverine's Adamantium😂 lol jokes apart they feel solid in hands by adding little bit weight but doesn't make ear fatigue when coming to sound quality the bass was good , tight and natural even if u are bass heads please try this kind of balanced IEM earphone where you will feel the realistic music playback. over Bass feels good but it dramatically affects the clarity of the musics that you are listening. Highs feel little muddy on Moondrop SSR when compared to Moondrop starfield which is cheaper than this model but the highs are good not poor and i day to day usage you won't notice that. Mid and lows this is where the SSR shines , it is the best clarity earphones i've used in my entire life every details are clearly audible studio level performance indeed, I've owned audio technica bose NC 700 but they are 5 to 10 times costlier than SSR but it matches their quality which is unbelievable 🔥 at this price range with this solid build quality u can't get a better IEM earphone under 4k Rupees if you are planning to buy IEM for consuming music and movies give a try for it without any hesitation and you will have crystal clear experience....Simply a Great piece of engineering ❤️

Hey Mohan, we are so happy to hear that you are loving your new purchase! We are really so glad to see such a detailed and amazing review. This will surely help others while considering their next purchase. Hope to see you again soon! :)

it is a rather brillant iem , not to sound like a broken horn it is my favorite single dd iem

so it is my first moondrop iem and i was not going to lie half the reason i bought the iem was for that waifu , jokes aside it is a really brilliant iem and is sonically one to hold candle to thanks to the beryllium coating perhaps or the very flat bass response the detail retrieval is stellar and the only iem i have in my possession which has similar resolution in the bass and mids to my all ba kbear kb10 (dont buy these unless you are not treble sensitive ) , the iem overall sounds really good the bass is tight and detailed while the treble even though in graphs looks peaky was not a bit peaky in my case , perhaps my ears are special or i am just normal anywho , there are a few thing i did not like about the iem as a whole package tho , but first the cable its good neh stellar its really hard to get tangled and unlike some cable the ear hook is not too stiff or soft then the fit of the iem itself is good it reminds me of the cheap buts in terms to fit as the only thing that is touching you is the silicone tip or the foam tip if you are weird and there lies my first problem it feels weightless which is good but not so good is if the tips are not inserted deep the give you a feeling of like they are about to fall down but the remedy is to insert them deeper , now to the box itself the waifu in the front is nice as always , but the box itself is rather tight and weirdly in my case the inside of it was falling apart especially the foam which held the iems in place , and the lack of additional tips is rather disappointing and lack of a hard case too is annoying but they did provide a pouch if you are into that , TLDR the iem is stellar and other than the tin t2 which is not as sonically brilliant there is not contestant matching its ability in being rather flat while have a lot of detail in all 3 sections including bass which is rare of dd's and the cable is rather good and plenty , but the accessories are meh but waifus always welcome am i right . also just additional information i used a ifi zen dac with it as a source and it is the iem to push my dac and amp the furthest in terms of power in terms of db per mw i believe it will be around low 90s or at best mid 90s

Hi Vaishnav, Thank you for sharing your honest and detailed review on the product with us. We really appreciate it.


Flat Sound Signature

A Flat sound signature offers an accurate presentation of sounds without adding colour to your music. Simply put, this sound signature presents audio without boosting any frequencies. As a result, it’s the most natural-sounding signature and provides the closest reproduction of how a track was recorded and produced. Due to their accurate sound reproduction, flat sound signature headphones are preferred by Music professionals, Sound Engineers and used in professional studios for mixing and mastering music tracks and are also loved by audiophiles for immersive listening sessions. You can listen to Classical, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk & possibly every genre in music.

Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.


Works with Android & iOS

One thing all of our phones have in common is that they have replaced the portable media player. These headphones and devices are perfect to pair with your Android and iOS devices and offer functionality previously unknown. If you’re someone who usually switches between a variety of devices with different OS, then these are suited for you. You can expect these headphones and devices to connect seamlessly without any hassle and even offer OS-specific functionality depending on the device. Headphones and devices designed to work with Android and iOS come in wired and wireless formats. Quite often you will also find Hi-Fi equipment offering direct connectivity to devices with Android and iOS to simplify the connectivity process.

Super Lightweight

The Super Spaceship Reference is yet another class-leading IEM from Moondrop. Its performance is clean and reliable. The SSR is small and comfortable, well-built with a quality cable, and sounds great thanks to a creamy midrange and refined treble. It all sounds quite spacious with an excellent technical presence for such an affordable earphone.


Raghav Somani is the Founder & CEO of Headphone Zone. An avid audiophile and musician since 2008, his choice of headphones include STAX Electrostats, Audeze LCD 3, and for music on the go, the JH Audio Roxanne + Astell&Kern SP1000 is never too far away. On his playlist, you'll find A.R. Rahman, Michael Jackson, and the Eagles.


These high-quality in-ear monitors from Moondrop are designed meticulously to stay true to the original studio recording. Producing a pure and uncoloured sound where everything from bass to treble sounds natural and authentic.



By reproducing a sound with flat bass and mid-high response, the Moondrop SSR offers a studio-like music listening experience. Inspired by canonized "Spaceship", the Moondrop SSR is designed to reproduce natural timbre and soundstage.



Featuring a flexible yet highly rigid beryllium-plated polyurethane diaphragm, the Moondrop SSR (Super Spaceship Reference), delivers high-resolution sound performance. This diaphragm with a high damping factor is paired with an ultra-lightweight CCAW low impedance coil and an N52 external magnet circuit.



Powerful IEMs need powerful cables. With standard 0.78mm 2pin connectors and a cable made of silver "thick plated" Optical Fiber Cable, the Moondrop SSR delivers exceptional sound. This transparent and elastically wrapped cable is upgradeable too. You can either replace this cable with an upgrade cable or a Bluetooth cable based on your preference.



Precisely controlled frequency response helps the Moondrop SSR to deliver the sonic performance it does. IEMs often face the risk of vapour or earwax contaminating inner damping but not with the Moondrop SSR. With an all-new triple-layer anti-clogging filter, the Moondrop SSR is free of such clogging issues which result in volume imbalance.

1 Year Warranty
