Amazon is late but they deliver.
Last week I saw Z’s review of the Moondrop Stellaris and as 99.9% gave these earbuds a lousy rating they are currently on sale for €80 so I had one of these parts shipped to see why Zeos was so excited.
Since I’m generally not interested in frequency curves, I approach HiFi goods without prejudice.
And I’m very excited about the Stellaris.
In the meantime I have a good routine in it, to immediately after opening the package, after a short test on the Questyle M15
(pure, clear and natural), I determine which tip sounds best (Spinfit CP145),
the result then shows, Which DAC/Amp (iFi Gryphon or xDuoo MT-604) fits.
Then, pure experience!
After five six minutes I had a déjàvu, intense, mid-focused, airy and packed with details.
WoW a Grado as in-ear, only a bit more intense and with excellent bass.
Sitting quietly and relaxing listening to music is not what the Stellaris is for, it is challenging and just fun, you want to swing and dance along.
The planar in-ear for the wing chair for complete relaxation is the P1 Max.
Both in-ears can be bought for under €100. +cable, tips and suitable amplifier if none is available, because an Apple dongle is definitely not enough to drive planar in-ears adequately.
