This single-balanced armature (BA) IEM is currently primarily available in China and features a fixed cable and a DSP USB-C connectionThe Droplet is inspired by the popular Chinese science fiction novel “Three-Body Problem” by Liu Cixin and is being released in conjunction with the new Chinese TV series adaptation of the book.

The Droplet is Moondrop‘s latest addition to their line of in-ear monitors and is set to be released on January 31st, 2023.

One of the key features of The Droplet is its DSP USB-C connection, which allows for a high-quality audio experience for everyone. The sleek and futuristic design of the IEM is also a standout feature, with a glossy silver exterior and a pointed front end. The Droplet is a homage to the novel “Three-Body Problem” and it is expected to be a hit among fans of the book and audio enthusiasts alike.
